HempMeds™ is rolling into "Chi-town" as the platinum sponsor of the Chicago Cannabis Conference to be held at Navy Pier June 7-8. The Chicago Cannabis Conference is hosted by MyCompassion.org, a nonprofit whose goal is increasing awareness of medical cannabis best practices to 9.8 million people in the Chicago Metro area. As a result of Illinois passing the Illinois Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act, conference presentations will feature cannabis industry professionals, non-profit organizations, medical professionals, lawmakers, and professional athletes plus patient and parent advocates.
"We are honored to be the platinum sponsor of the inaugural Chicago Cannabis Conference," HempMeds™ Director of Public Relations Andrew Hard said. "With the passing of the Illinois Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act, there is a need for mass education on the cannabis industry, what is available to consumers and what impact the new regulations have on their lives. HempMeds™ is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our awareness campaign of 'DON'T MOVE' and the ability to educate thousands that CBD-rich hemp oil products are available in all 50 states. HempMeds is looking forward to contributing to the discussion at the Chicago Cannabis Conference."
Interested conference-goers that want to check out HempMeds products and learn more should stop by the HempMeds booth located at C1.
"We are very excited to welcome HempMeds™ as the platinum sponsor of the Chicago Cannabis Conference," Heidi Parikh, Founder and President of My Compassion, said. "Their dedication to helping others and the professionalism they reflect in the cannabis/hemp industry is top notch."
