Other speakers at the Third Annual CBD Outlook will include Dr. Sue Sisley, Director of the Scottsdale Research Initiative; Martin A.

In commenting on his participation at the Third Annual CBD Outlook, Jeffrey Friedland stated, "Hemp has been an important agricultural crop for thousands of years. Prior to President Obama's signing the 2014 Farm Bill, it had been illegal to grow hemp in the US for more than sixty years. Only recently have the medical and health benefits of cannabidiol or CBD, which can be derived from both the hemp plant as well as marijuana, become known. Investors have taken notice of this new industry and the benefits of CBD, and despite the legal and regulatory challenges, investor interest in this new industry is continuing to grow."
