  • IHAM is Where Farm Meets Market

    Hundreds of Buyers for extraction and processing are seeking quality inventory for consumer demand and to maximize processing operations.


    Thousands of growers/Sellers want fair, market pricing for their hard work and quality products.

  • The full line-up of products* on auction is expected to include:

    • Hemp Biomass
    • Smokable Hemp Flower
    • CBD Crude Oil
    • CBD Distillate
    • CBD Isolate
    • CBD Blends
    • CBG Products

  • Hemp Biomass for CBD Extraction

    When accompanied by a completed Certificate of Analysis (COA) from a third-party lab, dried biomass for CBD extraction will be sold in Super Sack lots on-site, or Super Sack quantities may be brought on-site as representative samples of the larger quantity. Buyers are more likely to pay for what they can see, touch, and smell, so the more biomass a grower brings to auction for examination, the greater a Buyer's confidence and the possibility for premium pricing.

  • Smokable Hemp Flower

    Smokable flower may be sold at auction when accompanied by a completed COA from a third-party lab. Small packs weighing one pound or less may command price premiums. For substantial quantities, Super Sacks will be necessary for continuity and handling. Smell and trim quality are important to earn the best price for smokable flower, so Sellers are encouraged to bring smokable flower in air-tight containers as Buyers will want to examine closely before executing a deal.

  • CBD Crude, Distillate, Isolate, Blends

    Retailers and product formulators are seeking quality distillate, isolate, and volume blends. These products can be sold only when accompanied by a third-party COA confirming products are less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, and only within permissible limits of heavy metals and/or pesticides. These may be sold at auction whether transported on-site or not, but products that fail to meet the guidelines of state and federal legal limits and accompany a third-party COA from a licensed lab are prohibited.

  • Live Products

    Demand from Buyers and Sellers for mothers, seeds, seedlings, and clones † has been amazing and is increasing every day. IHAM 2019 is unable to auction live products, but interested Sellers will need to register for a Vendor booth in the Holiday CBD Market. Vendors may sell these products using representative evidence, such as high-resolution pictures, and written or oral testimonies to support genetic claims, and should provide third-party COAs to help validate specifications.​ Note, that no rooted plants are allowed on-site. Vendors can display cut plants in water, or cut plants in a potted growing medium, but the plants cannot be rooted.
