    Processing, Tri-Crops, and CBD with Casey Yosin from Total Health Companies

    Processing, Tri-Crops, and CBD with Casey Yosin from Total Health Companies

    Casey has spent many years researching hemp for CBD and has used it to help alleviate pain from past injuries. The effectiveness of the CBD Casey used for his pain was so positive that he wanted to share this with others so that they could avoid the opiate and pain killer route. Now Casey has his own CBD farm where he grows, tests and provides high quality products to his customers. In addition, Casey opened a processing facility in Michigan to fill the void of processing for farmers. The company is continuing to grow and a new processing facility is being set up in Ohio to serve more geographical areas. The facility will be able to handle a multitude of processing from CBD oils, grain, fiber etc. Casey wants farmers to have a place to take their product so that they aren't growing without having a safe place to process and sell their supply. Farmers in this area should contact Casey for their processing solutions.

    Casey is honest, transparent and straight forward with all business dealings. All of Caseys products have QR codes that will take you directly to the certificate of analysis (COA). Working with honest and transparent people in this industry is so vital to the growth and stability of the industry. Get in touch with Casey through his website.

In addition, Ana and Drew have multiple hempcrete structures they have built on their property as research tools. These two are passionate about building with hemp and the overall health benefits it provides to our individual self and the environment.

    CoExist Build has great offerings in hemp building materials. They are the first to manufacture and distribute pre-made hemp blocks that are available for purchase through their website. In addition, they have just released their new product - DIY Hemp Kits. An entire kit with all you need to build a small hempcrete structure on your property is available through their website.

    Hemp and Medical Cannabis Consulting, Research, Development, Industry Awareness and Growth with Michael Patterson

    Hemp and Medical Cannabis Consulting, Research, Development, Industry Awareness and Growth with Michael Patterson

    Michael Patterson of MGMC Pharma Group and Cannabis Pharmaceutical Research and Development shares a vast amount of knowledge about the industry, where it's headed both domestically and internationally, how this industry differs from others, how to get started, and the importance of using LinkedIn as a business growth tool. The hemp/cannabis industry is in it's infancy therefore has a massive amount of space for growth, innovation and development. Now is the time for those to get in on the ground floor. Michael discusses the different aspects of the industry, he understands licensing laws of all of the states and multiple different countries, he knows the cost to get into different parts of the industry and how to poise yourself for growth.

    Michael has spent many years researching the cannabis and hemp market. He is in the process of developing one of the largest research and development centers in Florida that partners with universities to develop educational programs for students and focuses on all aspects of the industry, how to grow the industry and produce the science and data that is lacking in the industry. One big challenge in the industry is that there is not any communication between differing sectors both domestically and abroad. So there is a lack of data to help entrepreneurs or scientists develop data driven programs. Michael's new facility will help bridge this gap.

    Michael discusses that the US is the entrepreneurship capital of the world and that many countries follow the growth of US industries. With the cannabis and hemp industries being in their infancy in the US, the growth of the industry abroad has not happened in a way to provide the much needed data to help push the industry forward.

    In addition to industry trends for this space, Michael discusses the impact banking has had, 3D printed homes, the length of time it takes an industry to truly get started and what he's seeing with the new entrepreneurs in the space.

    Lastly, Michael has started a new podcast called the Cannabis Report. Michael and his brother discuss the current events in the industry, interview leaders in the industry, and highlight individuals and organizations that are stars in the space. This podcast is extremely educational and is a must listen. There are great nuggets of information in each of his episodes that could provide education to anyone that tunes in.
