Hemp: A Changing Horizon
November 15, 2016 - November 17, 2016
The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) is hosting their annual convention November 15-17, 2016, at the Delta Bessborough in Saskatoon, Sask.
Since 1998, Canada has grown industrial hemp for seed and for fibre. Canadian farmers and businesses are interested in the growing business of hemp as it realizes its potential to produce healthy food and environmentally friendly products, including paper, textiles, biocomposites and sustainable building materials.
Today, Canadaâ€™s hemp sector is growing to provide secure supplies of hemp seed and fibre raw materials for domestic and international markets, as well as many processed and conditioned value-added products. Canadaâ€™s federal hemp regulations help to create quality, safety and accountability. A supportive scientific research community ensures that essential and necessary research continues — critical for any crop.
