CARBONDALE, Ill. — Save the date: the next Southern Illinois Hemp and Cannabis Symposium is Sept. 17, as it transitions to the new annual fall schedule. The popular event at Southern Illinois University Carbondale has traditionally been held in the spring.

Everyone welcome

The symposium is open to anyone with an interest in the possibilities of growing and marketing hemp and cannabis products. Participants in the first two conferences have included researchers, producers, exhibitors, vendors, students and community members.

Experts from a variety of organizations will highlight growing and marketing hemp and cannabis products in Illinois, the latest developments in the use of hemp materials in building and construction, the growth of new cultivars and much more. There will be exhibits and displays highlighting modern production technologies and consumer products as well.

More information soon

SIU’s Cannabis Science Center, whose mission includes establishing a collaborative network for cannabis/hemp research, is the symposium sponsor. Complete details are coming soon.
