Cannabis conferences are shooting up all over the world. But which ones are worth the trip? Don’t rely on pot luck – see our handy guide to the most intriguing events in 2018.
The Emerald Conference
San Diego, California, USA
Described as “the most technical conference in the cannabis science industry,” The Emerald Conference is in its fourth year and covers analytical testing and extraction techniques. It also boasts an impressive lineup, including Susan Audino (A2LA), Julie Kowalski (Trace Analytics) and Jack Cochran (VUV Analytics).
Canna-Tech Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv, Israel
Israel is regarded a leader in cannabis research, and with TED Talk-style sessions and live debates, this year’s Canna-Tech seems ready to deliver on its promise of “two days of the highest level cannabis dialog.” As well as medical research and agriculture, sessions also include “Investment” and “Media Rebranding”. A day-long tour of Tel Aviv at the end of the conference will allow attendees to visit local cannabis manufacturers.
This conference will save you both entrance fees and airfare – it’s online only, and free to register. Speakers, including Cindy Orser (DigiPath Labs), Tracy Ryan (CannaKids) and AC Braddock (Eden Labs), will be covering cannabis therapies for disease, extraction and testing, and the legal and regulatory landscape.
The Cannabis Science Conference
Portland, Oregon, USA
Now in its third iteration, the Portland-based Cannabis Science Conference had 2,400 attendees from 24 countries in 2017. It includes the regular (and popular) Canna Boot Camp, and this year there’s a new session on “Pharmaceutical Cannabis.”
Los Angeles, California, USA
Physicians, clinicians and lab professionals unite at CannMed: “Developments in Molecular Science and Genetics” and “Applying Cryptocurrency Technology to the Cannabis Industry” are just two of the talks on offer.
