CV Sciences, Inc. Announces Supporting Sponsorship of, and Events During, Hemp History Week June 6-12, 2016

This year promises to be an historic time in the movement to legalize hemp farming, as more farmers than ever before are planting hemp in states that have lifted prohibition on the crop. The 7th annual campaign will include grassroots events across the country, nationwide retail events and promotions, hemp plantings (in some states where hemp farming is legal under Section 7606 of the U.S. Farm Bill), documentary screenings, farmer outreach, and more.

In addition to its sponsorship of the national program, CV Sciences, via our PlusCBD Oil(TM) brand, will also be hosting and participating in a number of events focused in California and Kentucky.

Industrial hemp is woven throughout American history. Hemp History Week is a celebration of our rich history with industrial hemp, a chance to educate the public about the barriers to hemp farming and to advocate for federal policy change. Hemp History Week, made possible by sponsors and event hosts like CV Sciences, offers an opportunity to engage consumers by showcasing the range of hemp products available and the nutritional and environmental benefits that they provide.
