Purpose of the Event:

This conference will introduce cutting-edge research results on the industrial application of hemp and the medical application of cannabinoids. In addition, representatives of hemp-related associations from around the world, including European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA), Alliance of European Flax-Linen & Hemp Federation, Thai Industrial Hemp Trade Association (TIHTA), National Industrial Hemp Council (NIHC) of USA, and Medical Cannabis Clinical Research Assosiation of Korea, will participate in the lectures and discussions on various topics.
