The first-ever Southern Hemp Expo was held last month at the Nashville Fairgrounds. This was a massive success for the southern hemp farming industry. Both days of the expo sold out and the support by the community and local news proves that hemp in the south is here to stay.

The show was attended by participants from all over the country. We personally met attendees from as far away as California, Wisconsin, Florida, and even South Africa. Volunteer Botanicals shared a booth with Ben Mar International, the largest extraction lab in the state of TN and taught visitors about oil and product creation from hemp. The attendees included farmers, chemists, business people, product creators, investors and everyone in between. We all had one goal in mind, and that is to learn as much as possible about hemp.

We also had the pleasure of sitting down with Coach Freddy at the IHemp Revolution Podcast. He is a leading voice in the revolution of hemp across the country. The following podcast describes a little about what we do and how we collaborate with various partners. We are excited to share this information with you and hope you continue to learn about the hemp industry and product creation through Volunteer Botanicals.
