An event to explore and explain licensing process for cannabis industry entrants

As Canada gears up for the next round of cannabis legalization in October, 2019, cannabis enthusiasts are seeking to understand the legal framework and looking to navigate the licensing process in the cannabis industry. UCann2019 will address these issues and more at their inaugural event at Epic Hall, Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St.) on May 2, 2019. The full day event (8am-6pm) will feature curated panels on diverse topics ranging from cannabis law and licensing to security and distribution and much more. The industry experts conducting these panels include Deepak Anand from Materia Ventures, Maxim Zavet from ROBES and one of the world's leading experts on medical cannabis devoted to the study of cannabinoid medicine- Dr. Alan Shackelford. 

“As the industry expands in Canada, we’re seeing more than just the billion-dollar companies becoming licensed producers. It’s your neighbourhood farmers looking to leverage a portion of their land to grow a new crop; it’s former ACMPR & MMPR growers looking to turn their medical passion into profession. We’re looking to educate those entering into the craft cannabis market and inform them through all the different aspects of starting their business,” said Connor Haslam, Creative Director at Ethical Image, the agency behind UCann.

The event is a knowledge-gathering and networking opportunity for stakeholders from across the cannabis spectrum- from craft and ACMPR growers seeking to enter the legal cannabis market, to farmers and landowners who want to learn more about transitioning into cannabis from other industries, as well as professionals from tobacco, pharma and alcohol industries seeking to enter a new space in the legal framework.
