Why should the hempsters and mycophiles join forces? Symbiosis….

A conversation regarding the potential in to combine industrial hemp and mycological properties with an eye to product R&D, product development, economic development and even cost effective environmental remediation.

Both components have similar product capabilities (sugars, xylitol, fiber, lignin, medicines, plastics, cosmetics, etc…) and have a high probability of synergistic properties in processed components, agricultural products, brownfield cleanup and in business applications.

Investors are looking for the next big product to launch, and make a fair profit in the process. In today’s climate of cultural shifting to better business practices even Wall Street and Hi-Tech investors are opting for cleaner and more modest ROI on products and services that can boast “green” (and mean it), B Corps qualified or just offer honest old-fashioned good business practices – with no gender harassment stains on their products.

The combination of hemp and mushrooms may be just that next big – and sustaining - for investors, government agencies, research labs, and private business. This is a unique opportunity to examine the pros and cons of consciously creating plans to serve the entire supply chain with two products easily integrated into the Colorado manufacturing line-up.

We will examine and discuss the pros and cons of why serious mushroom people should start collaborating with serious hemp processors / researchers. What better place to start the conversation than in Telluride?
