TagOne, a technology leader in integrated supply chain systems for natural products, has launched Harvest 2.0, designed to help hemp farmers. Several industry and farming challenges arose which prompted the innovation. As fraudulent CBD products continue to land on the market, consumers have become increasingly skeptical, and regulators have scrambled to find the right policies to protect consumers.

With the number of lawsuits and fraud happening in the industry, we are really confident that TagOne:Harvest 2.0 can solve a myriad of these trust challenges. ,” says Manish Gupta, TagOne Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer.
