Better cannabis through collaboration: sharing the knowledge of Portugal and The Netherlands

Join the Legal Cannabis Coalition and WISE Healthcare Solutions as they bring together the best of Portugal and The Netherlands, for a full day of sharing knowledge, experiences, and services to support the Portuguese cannabis market. Presentations will cover all aspects of the production process of cannabis: from the preparation of your cultivation plan and obtaining your licenses, to the post-harvest steps and quality control needed for a marketable product.

Important markets
“Portugal has become an important gateway to the fast growing European market for medical cannabis products. Dozens of highly specialized cannabis cultivators are already active in Portugal. And local extraction companies, scientists and medical experts are increasingly getting involved in this exciting new market. Having access to the best knowledge and services will help Portugal to stay on top in this highly competitive industry. WISE Healthcare Solutions helps Portuguese cannabis professionals to find what they need.”

“The Netherlands is a world leader in the greenhouse and indoor cultivation of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants. In 2003, it also became one of the first countries with a National medicinal program for standardized and quality controlled cannabis. As a result, Dutch companies have become world leaders in the fields of cannabis greenhouse construction, optimizing cultivation conditions, and laboratory analysis of cannabis products. Sharing this knowledge with cannabis professionals worldwide is the main focus of the Legal Cannabis Coalition (LCC).”

Why you should attend
According to Alessandro Radici, CEO of Key Leaves (Portuguese LP and speaker at the event): “Every company which is interested in entering the Portuguese market as a medicinal cannabis producer, extractor, or service provider should join this event. Nowadays, especially in a recently developed business sector such as cannabis, it is extremely important to be partnering up with the proper consultants, and to receive the proper knowledge in order to elevate the company’s know-how. The LCC is giving the opportunity to share the knowledge of their cannabis professionals with experience coming from an advanced country such as The Netherlands, while WISE has the local knowledge and is offering the proper support services to enter the Portugal market. Knowledge is everything.”
