We are looking to build a collective of like minded entities and individuals to help promote hemp as a way to support American farmers, businesses and to build local, sustainable supply chains. Be one of the first to join the movement to unleash the promise of hemp!
As part of our ongoing mission to inform and educate the Hemp Bio-sustainability Community, the National Hemp Association is proud to present our newest entry in our ongoing webinar series; Green Energy: The Hemp Revolution.
With hemp quickly growing and becoming a largely traded commodity in many industries, you might find yourself wondering if there are some options that will stand the test of time the best. After studying multiple markets and our own processes and goals- we strengthened our focus and are reaching out to encourage you to branch out and explore some of the industries that need hemp, will want hemp, and how you can build the right partnerships from the start.
Special guest presenter Clayton Turner, founder of HPLC LLC, is a community member with many years of industry experience as an expert in industrial extraction, facilities compliance, formulation, import, method development, site safety, and licensing.

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!
Hemp has the potential to bring prosperity to many segments of our society. Not only will it be a new cash and rotational crop for farmers, the possibilities for manufacturing are virtuously endless. Not only can hemp make thousands of products, hemp can be used to makes thousands of products, better, stronger and more sustainable. Now is the time to start think about how hemp can be incorporated into your business plan. If you have an existing hemp business, an NHA business level membership is a great way to not only support our efforts but to promote your business tp thousands of hemp enthusiasts!
HEMP IS NOT MARIJUANA
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.
“Hemp Can Save The Planet!”
Hemp is the most versatile plant on earth.
It can be used for food, medicine, biofuel, compostable plastics, building materials and more.
