10:00 Local Vancouver, and British Columbia Regulations

Vancouver and BC 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.

Niel Marotta, Emma Andrews, Brandon Wright, Kirk Tousaw

10:45 Upcoming Regulatory Model: Edibles, Topicals, and Extracts

New rules and regulations are coming for various cannabis products. If current regulations have been any guide, overregulation will probably be the norm, creating hurdles for businesses, but also opportunities for those that can best overcome the regulatory obstacles. This panel will provide an overview of upcoming rules and provide a glimpse into the future landscape of what is sure to be a growing sector of the market.

Patrick Brauckmann, Jamie Pearson, Paul Pederson, Barbara Paley Dean Arbit

11:30 Mergers and Acquisitions

Consolidation is the norm. Companies are vertically integrating to bring all aspects of their business in-house, purchasing competitors, and finding partners to help them thrive. Whether you are buying, selling, or joining forces, the panel will cover the ins and outs of consolidating to get necessary competitive edges.

Nic Easley

12:15 Staying Relevant: Vetting domestic investments to ensure international feasibility

The international cannabis market is full of high-risk investment opportunities, both public and private. As a result of international drug law violations, Canadian companies will face roadblocks as they attempt to export their medicinal cannabis products. With a quarter trillion dollars of public market cap created from the speculation of international trade, there is a lot at stake for both operators and investors alike. To navigate these challenges, Canadian operators will need to adapt their strategies domestically and legally enter the international market when the timing is right. In this session, Nic Easley, CEO of 3C Consulting, LLC™ & Managing Director of Multiverse Capital, walks you through public and private international cannabis investment strategies and shows you how to thoroughly vet opportunities while reducing risk.

13:00-14:30 Break

Travis Lane, Barinder Rasode

14:30 Canadian Craft Cannabis

Canada has made great strides creating jobs, generating revenue, and leading G7 nations towards ending cannabis prohibition, but one area that can be improved his helping develop a stable craft cannabis industry. Small farmers and compassion clubs, starting in the medical field, helped build the foundation for legal cannabis commerce. Big mergers make headlines but small and medium businesses, especially cultivators, are stifled, if not outright blocked, by burdensome overregulation. This panel will delve into what is being done, and can be done, to help a Canadian craft cannabis community survive and thrive in the legal, regulated market.

Robert Laurie, Niklas Kouparanis, Clint Younge, Tom Zuber

15:00 Exporting Internationally

Canada has been the world’s leader in exporting cannabis, but now there’s some competition and there will certainly be more as country after country will start federally legalizing cannabis commerce. How can Canadian companies make inroads into other nations and keep a competitive advantage as Uruguay and Israel have started exporting and more nations will certainly follow suit? This panel will provide a rundown of exporting currently and discuss ways that Great White North companies can continue to be the global export leader.

Todd Dallato, AC Bradock, Marcus Bubbleman Richardson, Liam Oster, Brigitte Simons

15:40 Extraction Science and Tech

Cannabis extracts are a growing sector of the cannabis market and we can expect that it will continue to grow as consumers become more familiar with the products and extracts become more tailored to specific customers. This panel will cover the current extraction landscape, including products and techniques and discuss what the future may hold for this sector of the cannabis industry.

Charles Feldman, Emanuel Kotzian, Vincent D'Accolti, Tyla Salley, Lance Lambert

16:20 Strategic Partnership

Specialization is a major factor attracting capital and helping grow the Cannabis sector at hyper-speed. As businesses scale, focused models will be a necessity from both economic and regulatory perspectives, allowing companies to position and embed into the Industry value chain alongside other ‘specialists’. Our panel of industry experts will discuss strategy in identifying synergies in prospective strategic partners and offer their insights related to making these significant decisions which can be a determining factor in the survival and ultimate success of your business.
