LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – August 09, 2017) – CV Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: CVSI) (the “Company,” “CV Sciences,” “our” or “we”), today announced its Title Sponsorship of the 24th Annual Hemp Industries Association Conference (HIACON), held on September 8-11, 2017 at the Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
As the founding organization that has represented the hemp industry since 1994, the Hemp Industries Association (HIA), in partnership with the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and University of Kentucky (UK) College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, has chosen to hold this year’s conference in Kentucky, a state that has been endearingly called, “The Silicon Valley of Hemp,” due to its position in pioneering the future of hemp agriculture in the United States.
“The state of Kentucky has a rich history in hemp, dating back before its prohibition in the early 20th Century,” states Josh Hendrix, Director of Business Development, Domestic Production for CV Sciences. “As a proud native Kentuckian and hemp farmer myself, I am thrilled that the HIA has chosen to hold HIACON in a state with such a forward-thinking stance on the agricultural future of hemp, demonstrating that hemp is a fruitful commodity. Supporting HIACON as a Title Sponsor is incredibly important to CV Sciences; we have spent the last several years investing in academic research on hemp, particularly in the state of Kentucky, and we look forward to teaching attendees and fellow industry colleagues about our efforts in growing awareness on all sides of the hemp value-chain.”
