What: Cannabis Book of the Month
Award-winning journalist turned hemp farmer Doug Fine will be featured with his recent book, American Hemp Farmer. The book is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to his now legendary bestseller Hemp Bound, an immersive, instructive, funny blueprint for ensuring that independent regenerative farming spearheads hemp's return.

Why: American Hemp Farmer, is the inside story of the world’s most lucrative crop. It follows the rigors and pleasures of an entire hemp season from soil preparation and genetics acquisition through harvest and regenerative marketing. Fine gets his hands dirty with healthy soil and sticky with terpenes when growing his own crop and creating his own hemp products. He shares his adventures and misadventures as an independent, regenerative farmer and entrepreneur, all the while laying out a vision for how hemp can make farming the hottest profession in the digital age.

Speaker: Doug Fine is a comedic investigative journalist, bestselling author, and solar-powered goat herder. His latest book is American Hemp Farmer: Adventures and Misadventures in the Cannabis Trade (Chelsea Green Publishing, April 2020). He has cultivated hemp for food, farm-to-table products and seed-building in four U.S. states; Willie Nelson calls Doug’s work “a blueprint for the America of the future.” The Washington Post says, “Fine is a storyteller in the mold of Douglas Adams.” A website of Doug’s print, radio and television work, United Nations testimony, and TED Talk is at and his social media handle is @organiccowboy.
