Tune in as Mandi Kerr and Zev Paiss from Rhizo Verified talks about Hemp from seed to finish products. Deeper in the video they talk about how important quality communication to farmers is.
Rhizo Verified was developed with the understanding that security and certainty are severely lacking in the hemp industry. With that, Zev and his team embarked on a mission to take what they have learned from their first-hand experience and create a trusted and secure partnership platform for both hemp suppliers and buyers.
Zev is one of those rare individuals who has maintained an excellent reputation in the ever-changing and very challenging hemp space. As the creator and Founding Executive Director of the National Hemp Association, he understands first-hand the numerous challenges of this unique and rapidly growing space.
Zev is also actively consulting a number of hemp start-ups, as well as brokering hempseed oil, fiber, hurd, and several CBD products in bulk volumes.
