Special Guest – Josh Hendrix!

He also became an active member of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Council where he now serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors. In 2015 he created and became President of Hendrix Hemp, a licensed hemp producer that manages hemp cultivation on his family’s, Mayflower Farm, in Mount Sterling, KY.

Currently Mr. Hendrix serves as the Director of Business Development – Domestic Production for CV Sciences, Inc. where he works with numerous universities, farmers, businesses, and organizations to help facilitate the infrastructure necessary to establish a modern domestic supply chain for hemp in the United States.
Special Guest – Jonathan Miller From The US Hemp Round Table
Launched in early 2017, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a coalition of dozens of hemp companies –
representing every link of the product chain, from seed to sale – and all of the industry’s major national grassroots organizations. Our goal is to secure passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that would establish hemp as an agricultural commodity, and permanently remove it from regulation as a controlled substance. Our efforts include an aggressive, targeted, grass-tops lobbying campaign that will bring leading farmers and business executives to Washington to help improve upon and secure final passage of HR 3530 (Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2018) in the U.S. House and the soon-to-be-released Hemp Farming Act of 2018 in the U.S. Senate.

I live in China and really like your show.

If possible I really like to schedule a phone consultation session with you regarding that.
Looking forward to your timely suggestions

Special Guest Annie Brown – Rodale Institute
For seventy years, we’ve been researching the best practices of organic agriculture and sharing our findings with farmers and scientists throughout the world, advocating for policies that support farmers, and educating consumers about how going organic is the healthiest option for people and the planet.
Annie has been with the Rodale Institute since the fall of 2012, acting first as our West Coast Representative and then assuming the position of Director of Development in January 2016. She is responsible for raising money from foundations, corporations and individuals to allow the Institute to continue our important work. Although her grandmother and mother were both Master Gardeners, Annie boasts a pitch black thumb when it comes to gardening. Her ideal day would be spent hiking far, far away from any garden that needed tending, and instead going to her local farmers’ market and buying organic veggies to create a delicious meal.
