Colin Wells is a veteran of the US Army Infantry 2nd Infantry Division Stryker Brigade Combat Team. He deployed to Afghanistan from July 2009 - July 2010 with the very best of units. Together they fought in the Battle of Marjah. Colin is now honorably discharged.  Colin Says, "Had I not found what cannabis can do for my pain and PTSD, I very likely would have ended up a statistic. I couldn’t stand the terrible side effects my VA prescriptions were causing, so in 2015, I completely shut myself off from the world. I nearly lost everything. But with the help of cannabis and nature I was able to go from addicted and alienated, to thriving and happy. I did the work and soon learned to accept myself through sharing my experiences with others. Talking seemed to lift the burden. Now...I am a cannabis success story." Colin has advocated across the country including in the halls of Congress in our nation's capital, and we are proud to have him share his story at the Hemp Culture Expo.

The Higuera Family


Prince Hudson grew up watching the elders grow/harvest tobacco, wheat, rye, organic produce, pulpwood and wildflowers on the family farms. For 5 generations farming and raising livestock was a way of life for his people. Prince journeyed on to Virginia Commonwealth University and soon thereafter obtained a Master’s degree in public administration.  As farming profit margins declined Prince worked to revitalize their farming business. Hemp was the answer to rebuilding the family business. For the past 3 years Prince has applied the skills acquired while obtaining his MPA to spearhead the family’s agricultural endeavors. The rebirth of the farm has led to building a stronger connection within the family and providing financial opportunities for the younger generations to come. The family has applied their organic farming methods to add the highest quality of hemp flower and seed to the US market. Hemp has become a catalyst for a multitude of homemade products that the family manufactures for several businesses throughout the US. As the “Black Hemp Family” expands they are working with 2 major universities to teach sustainable farming practices and hemp Integration to students in order to re-establish the growing hemp market in the United States.

Dan Herer, son of the legendary hemp advocate Jack Herer, was born into the hemp movement. Today,
Dan carries on his late father’s legacy yet on his own terms and in his own way.

education will change the world,'' with a primary goal of reintroducing the hemp plant’s history back into
the educational system. To deliver on this promise, the Foundation is currently developing a mobile
touring hemp education center and Jack Herer National Hemp Museum. This effort will allow the
Foundation to take hemp education literally to the streets -- featuring a nationwide educational tour.
