Join us March 12, 2020 at 1pm EST for a new webinar – Understanding Hemp Insurance – Seed to Sale
This webinar will discuss what limitations exist in the Hemp Crop insurance space. We will address the newly introduced Federal Crop program and jump into how insurance agents have stepped in to help overcome the insurance hurdles, what types of coverage is out there and how traditional, and captive insurance companies and programs can make sense for your unique situation.
Content presented by experts Jeremy Colombik (President, Emerald Risk) and Jeff Kleid (Founder, Elite Risk). By focusing on the Hemp Crop insurance space since late 2018, both the team at Elite Risk and Emerald Risk Solutions are considered Hemp insurance pioneers. As such we understand the coverage, the uniquify of all the players trying to find their way into the community, and the emotional roller coaster that farmers have been on in trying to understand the plant, how it works, where they sell it to, and how they protect such a large investment.

Much work still needs to be done with the general public, farmers and our elected officials about the nutritional, industrial, environmental and medicinal benefits of hemp. As laws change, research is conducted and commercialization begins, sharing information will be vital to ensure the hemp industry thrives. NHA is committed to advancing this awareness and knowledge.
NHA’s main priority is the passage of comprehensive hemp legislation on a federal level. We also are here to help individual states with their hemp legislation. Stay tuned for important updates of how you can help pass HR3550, The 2017 Industrial Hemp Act!

One of the biggest misconceptions is believing that industrial hemp is the same thing as marijuana.
The two plants are the same species, but are more like first cousins and NOT identical twins.
