Know Before You Grow - Check Out Sessions on Cannabis and Hemp at NAFOA's Conference

February 27, 2019

What to Know Before You Grow 

 Explore the potential of the cannabis and hemp industries at NAFOA's 37th Annual Conference.  

Is Your Tribe Prepared to Break Into the $10 Billion Cannabis Industry?

This session will highlight what tribes need to know before engaging in an industry that changes from one day to the next. From feasibility studies to large retail operations to banking issues, tribal leaders and experts from the ancillary services and banking industries will break down what you need to know, the steps you need to take, and challenges you will face along the way.

Hemp is Legal – Now What?

With the legalization of hemp through the 2018 Farm Bill, tribes can now participate in a $2 billion industry that will provide a wide variety of products – most notably CBD. In this session, participants will hear directly from the U.S. Department of Agriculture about hemp regulations, plan requirements and more, as well as from experts and tribes about the risks and advantages of cultivating, processing, and selling hemp-based products.
