Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- History, ethnobotany and domestication
- Genetics, genomics, breeding, and synthetic biology
- Plant Biology
- Chemistry of hemp
- CBD : medical effects, production and regulation
- Hemp production and management
- Fibre hemp
- Seed and oils
- New materials developed from hemp
- Plant-microbe interactions
- Current status: regulation and policy
