SOUTH BURLINGTON – Life-changing personal stories were the driving force behind Vermont’s first cannabinoid entrepreneurs at the first cannabis and hemp convention in South Burlington on Saturday.
“I have a sister who has a seizure disorder, so I really got interested in CBD in 2015 when the farm bill was enacted in Vermont,” Kyle Gruter-Curham said at his booth at the back the DoubleTree Hilton’s convention room.
