Cereals & Grains 19: Symposium: Cannabis, CBD in the Food Industry

 Justin Prochnow will speak on Regulation and Legislation Related to Cannabis, CBD and Hemp

Functional foods and "dietary supplements" based upon cannabis, CBD and hemp protein are  growing industries.  Legalization and limitations on medical versus recreational use add a layer of complexity to this rapidly growing market.  There are known medical and health benefits.  The industry is evolving at a rate that out-paces the available technologies. Legalities create hurdles to development in this market.  This session will provide an overview of the cannabis opportunity and challenges in order to allow technologists to understand areas for innovation and development to help improve quality of delivery systems, functional foods and "dietary supplements".
