As the ‘Green Rush’ grows, Cannabis industry leaders, entrepreneurs, networkers and newcomers will gather to learn best business practices for maintaining a successful Cannabis business. At the 2017 PDX HEMPFEST© Expo they will gain knowledge about emerging Cannabis topics and policy issues.
A full day of educational sessions with professional Cannabis speakers to bring you up to speed on rapidly changing developments in the Cannabis industry. A high concentration of Cannabis industry technology buyers will be present.
Donations for the Oregon Food Bank will be accepted at the door.
There will also be a special screening of “Making Cannabis Oil with RICK SIMPSON,” and copies of his books will be available for purchase.
Now in our fourth year, Seattle HEMPFEST and the former Oregon Hemp Convention have joined forces to produce PDX HEMPFEST Expo. Check out this video from the first Oregon Hemp Convention in 2015.
“This event is excellent for networking, and offers high value information.” ~Andrew Black
Ed Rosenthal will teach time and energy saving strategies. Be prepared to change your paradigm of harvesting and the technology available to the modern gardener. He shows you how to apply these technologies to save on staff, reducing energy and time, as well as preserving trichomes. Learn how easy it can be to move your ripe plants to the next stage, drying.
He will also demonstrate how to construct a dry room instantly. In six simple steps create a pop up drying area that you can keep outside or move inside to dry and cure. The process uses inexpensive materials and is easy to deconstruct for later reuse. Cut your harvesting time by 2/3’s or more. What was once a daunting task requiring tons of labor and effort can be accomplished quickly and easily.
Tickets to the Ed Rosenthal lecture will include an autographed new release copy of ‘Harvest’ 2017.
Speakers and scheduled talks are subject to change.
