iHemp Michigan is a member-based organization representing hemp farmers, seed cultivators, processors, manufacturers and hemp businesses statewide. Our members are engaged in defining industrial hemp’s path to success, from seed to sale and beyond. We are committed to empowering hemp farmers, fueling industry leaders, and educating consumers to ensure hemp flourishes in the Midwest. We work to promote responsible and fair regulation, provide grower education, and enable full access to the evolving marketplace. iHemp Michigan advocates for wellness in people and the planet through hemp…and it begins with the farmer.
We offer events focused on farming hemp as well as educational content on the Industrial Hemp industry as a whole. Our program, Hemponomics 101 is designed to educate the layman about the plant history, varieties, uses and the future of the industry.
After a long prohibition on all Cannabis Sativa plants, over 15,000 acres of industrial hemp was grown in Michigan in 2019. Learn about the success and failures for the first growing season and where the industry is going.
This is a twenty to thirty-minute presentation with questions and answers. We have presented this information in nine communities throughout Michigan.

Midwest iHemp Expo
We bring experts together to answers to answer tough questions. Learn more about the Industrial Hemp supply chain, growing techniques and rules, processing opportunities and legal ramifications.
The 2020 Midwest iHemp Expo was attended by over 1,200 industry participants. The positive feedback and encouragement we have received for our hard work is motivating. We look forward to an updated and even better event for 2021.
The audience at the Midwest iHemp Expo will include farmers, processors, manufacturers, suppliers and entrepreneurs. They will be there to learn and connect with others in this exciting new green industry.
The location and date for the 2021 event is being decided and organized. Check back for updates.
