Q&A: Jacek Kramarz, HemPoland

Hemp Entrepreneur Jacek Kramarz, co-founder of HemPoland, is making his speaker debut on the show’s opening day.  Appearing alongside his colleague Paulina Wiśniewska (head of the analytical department), they’ll be outlining why they think Hemp-derived CBD is the next ‘Big Thing’ in the Nutraceutical Industry.

Why is it important to grow the natural and organic industry?

Given the professionalisation and scalability of agriculture in past decades we have experienced a radical change in what we eat.  Most of the food is coming from industrial production, which demonstrates a big change to how we sourced food in the past.  As industrial production is driven by cost efficiency, the food we eat nowadays has less nutrients compared to what we have eaten in the past.  This is why natural and organic food supplements or so called “superfoods”, such as hemp, must play a key role in our diet to allow the healthy development of society.

How important is Natural & Organic Products Europe to you and the sector?

Hemp foods and supplements have been forgotten for the past decades.  Natural & Organic Products Europe — one of biggest events in the food industry, may play a key role in its rejuvenation.  Hemp is back and there is no better place to push that message than Natural & Organic Products Europe.

What do you want visitors to take away from your session at the show?

That hemp is safe and an extremely useful plant.  With its countless industrial applications, it is poised to be the plant of the future.  Hemp is also the best legal source of CBD and other non-psychoactive phycannabinoids that made a stunning entrance into the nutraceutical industry.  With its extremely safe profile and numerous benefits to people suffering from a variety of different conditions, hemp-derived CBD has the potential to become the next “big thing” in the industry.

Who or what inspires you to be even better?

I am inspired by numerous hemp activists who dedicate their life and professional careers to promoting hemp.  Hemp truly has the potential to change our lives in a variety of ways.  It does not only provide relief to the ones suffering but also has a great impact on the environment.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

“If you sitting in the car and are about to go somewhere, you don’t wait for all the lights on your way to be green.” — I think it is a wonderful metaphor of entrepreneurship and challenges one faces in the emerging industry.
