The cannabis industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries on the planet. It’s one of many reasons why being a cannabis entrepreneur requires conducting constant research.

It only takes one misstep for a cannabis company to be out of compliance and if that happens the company risks receiving negative media coverage, losing customers, and possibly even being shut down.

In order to know how to be compliant with all laws, rules, and regulations a cannabis company needs to first know what the regulations are in the first place.

That is true for cannabis companies across Canada, including in Vancouver, British Columbia. Cannabis is legal for adult-use in Canada, but industry regulations are still evolving.

The International Cannabis Business Conference is being held in Vancouver, British Columbia September 15-16 and it is the best place to learn the latest about regulations in British Columbia from true experts.

A conference panel dedicated to cannabis regulations in Vancouver and British Columbia will include John Conroy (Conroy & Company), Andrew Gordon (Strategic Partnerships and Community), Dori Dempster (The Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary), and Jamie Shaw (Pasha Brands).

Vancouver and B.C. have a great tradition of pioneering cannabis policies, but regulations pose challenges for the legal market, both for businesses and regulators. This panel will cover the latest regarding local cannabis policies and the hurdles and opportunities of navigating the landscape of a market with such a rich history of unregulated cannabis commerce.

Additional conference topics and panels will include:

  • Regulatory models for edibles, topicals, and extracts

  • Mergers and acquisitions

  • Vetting investments with an eye on emerging international markets

  • Craft cannabis

  • Cannabis exports

  • Extraction science and technology

  • Strategic partnerships

The International Cannabis Business Conference is known for its networking opportunities and our Vancouver event will be no exception.

This year’s Vancouver event will feature a yacht after-party headlined by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill. You do not want to miss it!

Tickets are available online or by telephone at 541.864.0090.
