SAN DIEGO, June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HempMeds™ proudly announces its participation in and sponsorship of the Cannabis Business Summit hosted by the National Cannabis Industry Association in Denver. The conference takes place on June 24-25 at the Convention Center. The NCIA's mission is protecting legitimate cannabis businesses, banking access for those businesses, and fair tax policy. There will be a wide variety of presentations from industry leaders; HempMeds is sponsoring a networking session on June 24.
"A major challenge that cannabis-based businesses face is being treated like any other business would," states Andrew Hard, Director of Public Relations for HempMeds™. "We support the efforts of the NCIA and feel that as the industry evolves, fair taxation and banking regulations must be addressed. There will be an estimated 800 business owners and professionals attending the Cannabis Business Summit. That is a very good indication that the stigma once surrounding cannabis-based businesses is being eliminated, new businesses are sprouting up, and industry growth will dictate the full acceptance of cannabis-based businesses in the U.S."
"HempMeds™ is proud to be a leading hemp-based business featured at the Cannabis Business Summit," Hard continues. "At the conference we will address the Company's opinion that CBD-only legislation is not prudent, as it does not allow access to the 'whole plant.' However, for states that have not or will not legalize cannabis, CBD-rich hemp oil products are a readily available option to try. The Company feels that trying CBD-rich hemp oil products first should be a major consideration for individuals and families prior to relocating to a legalized state. HempMeds appreciates the NCIA for creating a platform for these types of policy discussions to take place."
Members of the media wishing to attend and cover the conference should contact Andrew Hard, Director of Public Relations at HempMeds, for media passes. If by phone, call 917.660.5418 or email to Andrew.Hard@hempmeds.com.
