KNACKA Grand Opening & 4th Annual Hemp History Week Celebration

Portland, OR – On June 7th, KNACKA will host a celebration for the grand opening of the flagship KNACKA retail store and 4th Annual Hemp History Week. KNACKA designs and manufactures premium handcrafted hemp gear in our Portland, Oregon shop. Hemp History Week is a national grassroots education campaign taking place from June 3-9, 2013 to renew strong support for hemp farming in the United States.

This event will feature free samples of hemp food and body care products from the sponsors of Hemp History Week as well as ways to take action in getting industrial hemp legalized to farm in the U.S. once again. Educational materials to learn about the many uses of hemp including a “hemp petting zoo” will be on hand. Electronics installations by Jumpwire Video will be featured illustrating how video, LEDs, RFID, microcontrollers and sensors can come together to create a truly unique retail and educational experience.

For thousands of years industrial hemp has been critical to the survival, success and evolution of humans worldwide. Utilizing industrial hemp’s potential today will be key to moving forward sustainably and successfully in the future. Our aim at KNACKA is to create premium quality hemp products that will once again interweave one’s daily life with the rich and rugged history that this amazing sustainable resource holds.

Hemp History Week will feature a national retailer program with over 800 participating stores, local events, a nation-wide restaurant program, and hemp product sampling. The campaign will also feature a 2 week Take Action petition drive to encourage the Obama administration and Congress to change federal policy and allow American farmers to once again grow industrial hemp.

Please join us for this landmark event.
