CannaLife Academy was fortunate enough to get an interview with the hemp guru Richard Rose. Since 1980 Richard Rose has been innovating award-winning natural foods. He has over 150 products. After being in the Inc 500 for a first-mover soy-foods success, Richard turned his sights to hempseed in 1994. As a result, the hemp products Mr. Rose produced was one of the first to move on the market. Many of these types of hemp seed products are Canada's hemp exports to the US. Richard won 3 hemp industry product innovation awards for them before today's companies ever started. After selling his soy-foods company for millions and retiring when the hemp foods market died for 2 years, Richard started other products including CannaCoaching. He is a leading authority on hemp and hemp seed. Richard Rose was featured on "The Rosanne Barr Show", has a few cookbooks including "The Hemp Nut Cook Book" and was a keynote speaker at many events including World Hemp Congress and Cannafest in Prague. He has had mentions on shows like Jay Leno and he is the leader of an army that believes that hemp needs to be available to everyone on the planet! Richard states that he is back now with more industry innovations. Maybe in 20 years they'll be 93% of Canada's exports again?

Richard Rose is adept at teaching people about Patent-able processing improvements, emerging product segments, new hemp seed foods, new ways of making hemp seed foods, 90% protein powder, lowest-cost production, new Best Practices, new CBD products, new nomenclature, Nobacco™, Not-Pot™, Medicinal Hemp, Artisanal CBD Hemp buds, CBD in foods, new tech for food and HempNut. He also is involved in legislation on hemp including the Farm Freedom Act, "1% in 2016," CannaSearch™, so much more.

Hemp, pot's red-haired stepchild, is back with a vengeance. In 10 years, Cannabinoids from hemp will exceed the value of marijuana cannabinoids. Richard is now focused on getting Hempreneurs off to a good start with his CannaCoaching and is a HEMP Warrior.
