NoCo Hemp Expo: Three can’t-miss highlights from the April 2015 event

The Cannabist
Here are three highlights from the second annual NoCo Hemp Expo schedule:
  • Author Doug Fine. A leading contemporary hemp academic and lifestyle practitioner, Fine is promoting his latest book, “First Harvest: Game on for the Hemp Industry.” The book is being printed on hemp-composite paper.
  • Hemp sports car. As part of Renew Sports Cars’ goal to create 100 percent carbon-neutral automobiles, the Florida company is building vehicles with hemp composite frames that also run on hemp ethanol. Its rebuilt 1997 Miata will be on display at the expo.
  • Hemp artists. Muralist Tommy Nahulu — well known for painting a beloved Johnny Cash mural on the east side of the bar at 314 E. 13th Ave., which stood there from shortly after the iconic Man in Black died in 2003 until that watering hole changed ownership and underwent rebranding in 2012 — will be among the artists painting or sketching on hemp canvas during the expo.
“If you’re interested in hemp and want to find out what you make with it and do with it,” Beegle says, “this is your event.”
Tickets for the second annual NoCo Hemp Expo start at $15 at
