After a first day revolving around education, the second day of the NCIA’s Cannabis Business Summit is entirely dedicated to the exhibition. However, before that officially kicked off, Bruce Linton joined the convention too. In a very interesting talk, the former Canopy Growth co-CEO discussed with Seth Adler about the cannabis industry in general: from future plans of the Canadian executive, to the situation of the sector in different parts of the world.

By the time the ‘conversation with Bruce Linton’ was over, the exhibition hall was finally open to visitors. Many companies participated in this year’s Cannabis Business Summit. Even though some exhibitors were mainly consumer-oriented, greenhouse suppliers, specialists, consulting companies and so on were exhibiting all over the hall.

Most of the exhibitors agreed that the quality of the people visiting their booths was very high. In other words, not many hobbyists or non-professional growers were at the event. In fact, most of the people attending this convention were either a professional, an expert, or an industry insider.

The first day of the exhibition demonstrated that the cannabis industry is indeed thriving but is also maturing. This fact was reflected by the number of professionals attending the event, which raised the bar of the overall ‘quality’ of the visitors in San Jose.
