Southern Illinois Hemp and Cannabis Symposium

This is the ideal hemp/cannabis inspired symposium!

This symposium is designed for practical information and tools for new and experienced organic hemp grower, producer, and processor. The event offers information on current research, rules and regulations, banking, insurance, security, pre-season, in season, and post season information.

There will be key speakers form Illinois and Kentucky offering a host of knowledge on certified seed, seed bed preparation, insect and disease control, irrigation, fertilization, flowering, sex identification, lab sampling, harvesting, drying, storage, the chemistry behind processing, and marketing. There will be numerous vendors that will be demonstrating their equipment and products. Our hope is to meet all your hemp producing needs.
