The largest trade show for hemp and CBD professionals in the Pacific Northwest takes place Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Portland Expo Center.
“Producing the Oregon Hemp Convention is a natural next step for Kush.com, since our business is centered around connecting thousands of cannabis and hemp producers, processors and retailers,” said Michael Gordon, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Kush.com. “For this particular business community, the chance to build relationships face-to-face is a powerful opportunity.”
The Oregon Hemp Convention (#OHC2019) features more than 100 exhibitors and is expected to draw over 2,000 attendees. As part of the 2019 convention’s new features, Kush.com is offering free entry to attendees who bring a donation for the Oregon Food Bank: Just bring five cans of non-perishable food to waive the $10 entry fee. Attendees can also choose to purchase two day passes for $20.
The convention features a silent auction where attendees can bid on a bucking machine, valued at $17,000, as well as gift baskets that include lab-testing vouchers, edibles, smokable goods and topicals.
Other features of this year’s #OHC2019 convention include:
- More than 20 speakers representing a wide range of industry sectors
- Products available for purchase

“Kush.com’s mission is to support licensed cannabis and hemp farmers, producers and retailers by providing a trusted, secure network for them to do business,” Mr. Gordon said. “Presenting the Oregon Hemp Convention is the ideal way for us to elevate that mission and solidify the Pacific Northwest’s position as the leader of this burgeoning American industry.”
