It can be difficult forecasting your business’ future in the rapidly evolving hemp industry. From the signing of 2018’s Farm Bill legalizing industrial hemp at the federal level, to the rise of CBD as a purported wündercure, hemp has rapidly become the hottest commodity around. But between the big headlines, hemp industry players have grappled with unclear legal frameworks and a spate of million-dollar lawsuits.

Oregon has been a champion of the hemp industry since first legalizing industrial hemp at the state level back in 2015. The state continues to roll out new regulations and refine its regime. In a very impressive public-private commitment, Oregon State University announced it would be launching the United States’ largest hemp research facility this June.

So how do you keep up with the changes and protect your business? How do new entrepreneurs catch a ride on the relentless hemp-CBD train without getting steamrolled? Stakeholders in the industry at every level should save the date for Thursday, October 3rdand join Harris Bricken for a free, one-hour webinar about leveraging Oregon hemp for local and national success.

Portland-based corporate lawyers Vince Sliwoski and Nathalie Bougenies will be joined by  litigation colleagues Jesse Mondry and Jihee Ahn to present this webinar just in time for harvest season. These lawyers represent a wide array of hemp businesses, from local family farms to national retail conglomerates. The format of their upcoming webinar covers:

  1. The legal framework of Oregon hemp, including CBD, and anticipated changes;
  2. The federal laws that continue to inform and affect Oregon hemp, CBD and related products;
  3. The rise of industry lawsuits, and the issues at play; and
  4. Your questions, which will be welcome throughout the webinar.

Register Here to join us on Thursday, October 3rd at 12:30 p.m. Pacific.

And if you cannot attend, feel free to register and submit questions prior to the event. Our Oregon hemp team will do all our best to field all of them, and we will post a recording afterward.

We hope to see you October 3!
