One World Products Inc. (OWP), the largest Black-controlled, fully-licensed hemp and cannabis producer in Colombia, announce that its Chairman and CEO, Isiah Thomas, is set to deliver the opening keynote address at the 2022 Benzinga Cannabis Conference on April 20-21, 2022, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
“I am honored to be discussing One World’s mission and vision at this week’s Benzinga Cannabis Conference,” said Thomas. “As an ascendant international hemp and cannabis company focused on environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards, we have made significant progress in the development and growth of the company since its founding. Specifically, we have constructed highly scalable farm and production facilities in Colombia; generated a portfolio of fully licensed elite and government-approved genetic strains; been granted a state-sanctioned THC quota; and have cultivated new customer relationships within our initial targeted end-markets.”
“Bigger picture, we believe ‘HEMP IS THE NEW PLASTIC,’” added Thomas. “Our mission is to become a leading and reliable global supply chain for industries striving to boost global sustainability, offset carbon footprints and reduce dependence on hydrocarbons. These include the automotive industry, the chemical industry, the food, beverage and packaging Industries, and the personal care products industries, to name a few. We are excited about the future of OWP as we continue to be a pioneer in the burgeoning industrial global hemp and cannabis space.”
Isiah Thomas was inducted into the National Basketball Association (NBA) Hall of Fame in 2000 after spending his entire career with the Detroit Pistons. He was a 12-time NBA All-Star, a two-time NBA champion, the 1990 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, and named as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History.
Today, Thomas serves as an analyst for NBA TV and is an accomplished and highly respected international business executive and investor.
