New Frontier Data

In 2018, Hemp Business Journal was acquired by New Frontier Data. The HBJ offices were relocated to the New Frontier Data satellite office in Denver. New Frontier Data is headquartered in Washington DC. All operations and reporting for HBJ continue as before the acquisition, but now with the team of New Frontier—and its depth of resources and cannabis industry expertise—to support HBJ. We look forward to the next chapter of hemp data and market intelligence as part of the New Frontier Family!
