CBD—the professional, and the personal - video

The heart-rending story of a hemp business leader turned to advocacy to save his son—and the next generation.

ToddCast Episode 5:The medicinal value of hemp CBD has been proven with FDA approval of a CBD isolate drug. Even so, the forces aligned against its widespread use remain. Sean Murphy, founder of Hemp Business Journal and now with WAFBA producing the NoCo Hemp Expo in Denver (and online) March 25-27, talks with Insider senior editor Todd Runestad about:

  • Murphy’s young son, Atlas, born with a terminal brain condition—and how, even in the cannabis capital of Colorado, he has been unable to legally use CBD to help.
  • What the leading hemp companies are doing to stay ahead sustainably.
  • The opportunities for hemp beyond medicinal—nutritional, textiles, biomaterials.
