HempFusion Wellness Inc. (TSX:CBD.U) (US:CBDHF), a leading health and wellness CBD company utilizing the power of whole-food hemp nutrition, is pleased to announce Ms. Ola Lessard, HempFusion’s Chief Marketing Officer, has been elected to her second consecutive term as President of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable (the “Roundtable”), one of the most influential non-profit organizations advocating for national hemp legislation in the United States. This election makes her not only the first woman, but also the first two-term president in the organization’s history.

The Roundtable is the leading business advocacy organization in the hemp industry. It is comprised of dozens of leading companies and organizations committed to safe hemp and CBD products. The Roundtable works with elected officials and policy makers on both the state and federal levels, with the goal of ensuring a clear legal path for hemp and hemp-derived products, including CBD. HempFusion has been a Roundtable member in good standing for over two years and has served on the Executive Board since June 2020.

“I am truly honored by the confidence my peers have shown in me by electing me to a second term as President of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable,” commented Ms. Lessard, the first woman to ever serve the office. “I strongly believe this organization will continue to be the driving force behind much of the legislative progress for hemp-derived products.”

“This year, our immediate objective is to achieve full clarity for CBD as a dietary supplement. It’s an important and necessary step for the entire hemp community, including everyone from farmers and extractors to manufacturers and retailers, to be able to flourish and realize our industry’s full potential,” continued Ms. Lessard.
