Blis Brand - The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference
Blis has always believed in the power of hemp CBD, but today that power is even greater as the hemp CBD world is changing in a profound way. Hemp cannabis is moving from over 70 years of prohibition to a mainstream crop. And it’s far bigger than the actual crop- it’s a lifestyle. The way people perceive Hemp CBD, how they define themselves by their Hemp CBD lifestyle and how they experience Hemp CBD is far different today than in the past. For many, Hemp CBD is not what they do, it’s who they are. Today, people who live this CBD lifestyle are bonding over collective experiences and that is what motivates them, drives them and fulfills them. In the end, it makes for a stronger community, or in Blis’s case, a stronger, more connected company. Aviad has been in the industrial hemp business for 3 years before he was in the cannabis business for 8 years with a total of 11 years of experience with this plant. Aviad has met with over 10 senators and state assemblymen to lobby for hemp legalization in California in 2018 and 2019. blis has around 10,000 acres of hemp contracted in the 2019 growing season and looking at more for 2020 growing season.

First Federal Bank - The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference
Business from cannabis is growing fast in Florida; some of it regulated tightly, and some of it without rules. But all of it comes with cash that the banking industry is reluctant to touch. The first legal industrial hemp seeds in decades are growing now in South Florida soil. CBD is showing up in ice cream, gummy bears and cocktails, but the state says the products are illegal. And millions of dollars are being generated by the medical marijuana industry in Florida, but few banks want the money. Most banks are not interested in touching any cash that touches cannabis, but not First Federal Bank. It started as a small savings and loan bank in 1962 in Live Oak, Florida. The bank offered its first checking account in the 1980s. The bank's first cannabis customers were from California, but First Federal insists the money in the bank from California isn't directly from selling marijuana. Instead, the California money has been generated by companies there selling parts of themselves to raise money. But in Florida, First Federal is banking business generated directly from the seed. "Any time that you have the actual product and you have cash involved, that's really what requires the heightened regulatory standards."
