VANCOUVER, BC–Cavan Ventures Inc. previously announced (see news release dated 2014-03-25) the diversification of its growth plan into the Medical Marijuana and Hemp industry. To accelerate this process, Eric Hughes has joined the Company as its newest member to the advisory board.
Mr. Hughes has been involved in the Canadian Hemp industry since its inception in the 1990’s. Mr. Hughes was elected President of the BC Industrial Hemp Grower’s association and Mr. Hughes is currently president of Zima Enterprises Inc. formed in 1996 to promote the coming hemp industry and revitalization in Canada. Early on, Eric felt that his efforts were best utilized in the grass roots movement to educate the public on the many uses of hemp within the medicinal, industrial, and diet/lifestyle industries. Once hemp became a more branded household name, Eric and his company Chi Hemp Industries where he was president from 1998-2014 and is a current member of the CHTA (Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance) decided to move to a more wholesale capacity to be able to service the growing demand for hemp seeds and food applications.
As the hemp food industry is now out of its infancy, Eric is moving his focus to the health and industrial purposes industry as he sees the effects of planet changing industrial hemp products that can be made from hemp fiber and from the medicinal aspects of Cannabinoids. Eric sees these branches of the hemp industry as being the source of the new exponential growth into the next decade within this industry.
Eric has amassed a large amount of knowledge in his more than 15 years involved in the hemp industry in Canada and has done everything possible to utilize this information to assist in the growth of this exciting market. With his experience running both a marketing and mail order business that sold and promoted hemp, Eric has shown notable success in not only being able to support this grass-roots movement politically but being able to get the information to the people in an effective way resulting in market growth for both his companies and the product as a whole.
