Loveland, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2018 -- The Fifth Annual NoCo Hemp Expo (NoCo5) announces Fort Lupton, CO-based PureHemp Technology as this year's Presenting Sponsor for the two-day gathering of industrial hemp thought leaders, speakers, entrepreneurs, and exhibitors taking place April 6-7, 2018, at the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland, CO.
Featuring an expanded Hemp Summit, new Farm and Agricultural Symposium, a Global Hemp Village and two interactive exhibition halls, this year's NoCo5 is set to be the largest on record. Recognized by the Hemp Industries Association as the "Hemp event of the year," sponsors for this year's event span across market leaders in production, manufacturing, and distributing of industrial hemp related products.
Nearly three-dozen states have passed legislation in recent years allowing research or commercial production of industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cousin to marijuana. From hemp extract products now being sold online and in a growing number of natural products stores to food, fiber, cosmetics, textiles, paper, animal feed and construction materials and more, industrial hemp sales totaled $688 million in 2016, led by hemp food, body care and hemp extract rich in cannabinoid compounds, or "CBD" products.
PureHemp Technology is this year's NoCo5 presenting and leading sponsor that has been an innovator in the production, branding and marketing of industrial hemp products. PureHemp's sister company, Pure Kind Botanicals, produces and markets a growing line of premium, full spectrum, cannabinoid-infused products for the wellness industry.
"We at PureHemp are proud and honored to represent the entire hemp community at the Fifth Annual NoCo Hemp Expo," says Ed Lehrburger, Founder and Executive Manager of PureHemp Technology and Pure Kind Botanicals. "All of us in the greater domestic hemp community can honestly say we are successfully growing the U.S. hemp industry."
PureHemp Technology has been advancing a patented hemp refinery technology that rapidly converts hemp stalks into pulp, lignin, and sugars that can be used to manufacture thousands of unique hemp-based products. Based on years of R&D and favorable results, PureHemp has a rich history partnering with other companies and advancing unique hemp initiatives.
For example, PureHemp was approached last year by a Canadian company looking for a technology company capable of producing sugars from hemp stalks that can be fermented into a high-quality beer. In 2017, PureHemp successfully completed a Phase I proof-of-concept program and is currently engaged in a Phase II program to refine specific recipes for producing a high quality, 100% hemp beer product. Hemp and beer enthusiasts, stay tuned!
Additional sponsors for this year's NoCo5 include: Sub-Zero Extracts, Palmetto Harmony, Lilu's Garden, and the Hoban Law Group, the nation's premier cannabusiness law firm.
