Market Making Consumer Goods: Health, Nutrition, Beauty, and Personal Care Products

Figuring out how to feed nutrient dense food to 7 billion plus people while reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a major challenge of our time. Industrial hemp seed, referred to as grain in the industry, can be beneficial for both. Hemp grain is an easily digestible powerhouse protein with the right balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids that contains all 9 essential amino acids. Crushing the grain results in a hemp oil product that can be consumed liked olive oil or used in beauty and personal care products. Industrial hemp sequesters carbon and regenerates soil. This panel showcases leading edge companies and institutions innovating with hemp grain, building the domestic supply chain, and creating markets for hemp grain in the consumer goods market.
