A Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) director was featured in a HempToday article regarding Canada’s current focus on the CBD market as upcoming changes to the licensing regime suggest a favourable landscape for industrial hemp growers. The article also discussed the amount of hemp seed Canada exported in the last year, which jumped to “C$123 million last year, according to figures from Statistics Canada and CATSNET Analytics.”
As part of the article, Naturally Splendid Director and President of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) Russ Crawford was interviewed for his views on the hemp export market, which he says should develop into other Asian countries including Thailand, Taiwan, Japan and China. “Australia and New Zealand will also be strong buyers of Canadian seed now that it is a legal product there,” he is quoted as saying. “They can and will grow seed in Australia in the future but they can’t grow it as well as Canadian farmers can. Europe will also be a future buyer of Canadian hemp seed and products.”
