Granada Ballroom Breakout

An accomplished filmmaker with an expansive repertoire of film and television projects to her credit. Considered a maverick within the hemp movement, she was among the first to bring more Hemp awareness into the public eye with her groundbreaking documentary film called Hempsters: Plant the Seed Starring Woody Harrelson, Willie Nelson and other legendary performers who shared her passion for hemp. Produced under auspices of her company, Thunderbird Productions, the film garnered a faithful following and media acclaim for exposing the absurdity of hemp prohibition and highlighting the tremendous upside of revitalizing a hemp industry in the U.S. Since then, she has turned Hempsters into a documentary franchise with a number of follow-up films in the can and several more in production. Her current series, Hempsters Presents: HT Global Hemp House Build TV, hosted by Greg Flavall, focuses primarily on the environmental and health benefits of building homes with hemp.

Snowden Bishop is a seasoned author, journalist, photographer and producer with works published worldwide. Her career began in the fast-paced environment of broadcast journalism. She “cut her teeth” in FM radio stations as a drive-time disc jockey, producer and news reporter. She graduated into television news after being recruited by a San Diego NBC affiliate, KCST-TV, where she worked as an evening news assignment reporter. She later returned to Missouri to accept a new position as the anchor for “Today Show” cut-ins and morning news at the NBC affiliate, KCBJ-TV. An offer by CBS Television to co-host a national youth-oriented talk show transported her to Los Angeles. Just days before the show premiered, CBS abruptly cut all new programming to stave off a hostile corporate takeover. The show cancellation presented new opportunities behind-the-scenes in music, television and film production.

Snowden has since held a myriad of positions for major media companies including CastleRock, HBO, Warner Bros and EMI/Capitol. During that era, she worked with legendary performers including Robert Palmer, Alice Cooper, Ray Davies, Todd Rundgren, George Harrison, Ravi Shankar, Paul McCartney and a host of A-list directors, producers and actors.

Having written about cannabis since 2010, Snowden parlayed her passion for sustainability, compassionate care and a burning desire to raise awareness about the cannabis movement into BEAM’s 2016 launch of The Cannabis Reporter. The new online media outlet features news, resources and articles that endeavor to engender widespread acceptance. The Cannabis Reporter Radio Show marks Snowden’s return to broadcasting in front of the mic.

Scattini’s efforts to understand the depth and range of medical cannabis intensified when one of his former platoon leaders succumbed to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBIs have become so pervasive that officials refer to them as a signature wound of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 

Through extensive research, Scattini learned that components of the plant could be used as a neuroprotectant, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. This insight was one of many that led to the creation of The Athena Protocol, a strategy Scattini and his team have developed to mitigate and treat TBI on the battlefield. Scattini believes that this effort may also provide protection against CTE, a degenerative brain disease often found in NFL players.
