CSCs are not prophets in their hometown. Spanish CSCs live a paradox, despite being a model that started 20 years ago and has more than 1,000 venues in the territory, never before we have witnessed such a strong judicial offensive against its representatives. Social normalization and political immobilism continue scoring points in parallel. In this panel, two historical representatives of the cannabis movement will debate the challenges and opportunities of a model that continues to expand throughout the world.

    Saber y Ganar

How to navigate the rapidly evolving Spanish, EU, and Global cannabis industries and situate your business to become a global player and your investments for success

As the EU and global markets, people, and economies work to recover post-pandemic, European business opportunities continue to evolve and Spain moves from the club model and is now closer towards further regulating medical and potentially adult-use cannabis in the coming years. Importing and exporting possibilities are ever-expanding and the medical, recreational, hemp, and ancillary markets present many new options for entrepreneurs and investors. As all of these new doors open, it’s imperative that businesses stay compliant with the ever-evolving domestic and international laws, regulations, and standards. There is much that Europe and the rest of the world can learn from the successes and failures of the North American medical and recreational markets as the EU industry continues its fast-paced growth. In this session, Nic Easley, CEO of 3C Consulting & Managing Director of Multiverse Capital, will share his insights and advice from over a decade of legal experience in the operational and investment sides of the global cannabis industry. Nic will guide entrepreneurs and investors through planning for the current and future opportunities that will have the most potential for long-term success. Topics will include; vetting opportunities, assessing risks, maintaining regulatory compliance, raising capital, and strategic positioning to become a global producer or lucrative acquisition target with excellent exit opportunities in the future. Nic habla español y parte de esta presentación estará en inglés y español.

Join our discussion on maintaining the delicate dance between honoring "OG" cannabiz culture and the polished, formal business space. In our quest to bring sophistication and polish to the space, how can we mainstream plant medicine in white-collar culture while staying true to the roots? We'll explore how regulated cannabis industries can scale and thrive, while also remaining deeply-seated in the lessons and legacy of "traditional markets." Because LOVE can be LUCRATIVE.
