If you’ve ever wondered about starting a CBD or hemp-related business, here’s your chance.
Lucky Leaf Expo in Irving this week will provide information on the growing process, laws, business, edibles and more.
Suppliers, attorneys, lighting companies and distilleries will be represented, along with cooking demonstrations, panel discussions and a crash course on how to start a cannabis business.
Organizers said Texas is poised to become one of the largest hubs for hemp and CBD. Consumable hemp is legal in Texas to manufacture, distribute and sell and is regulated by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
“We at Lucky Leaf have personally seen the positive impact that cannabis and hemp have made on people’s lives,” Lucky Leaf said on its website. “We’ve seen individuals’ health and wellbeing thrive. We’ve seen people discover business opportunities that weren’t possible only a few years ago and witnessed the rising influence they have on local economies.”
Lucky Leaf Expo is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Irving Convention Center, 500 W. Las Colinas Blvd. Tickets start at $35.
