O’Cannabiz Returns to Toronto One Month Shy of Legalization

O'Cannabiz Toronto

Cannabis conferences are popping up everywhere these days. Whether you are a veteran, newbie, patient or industry-savvy biz mind, the excitement is contagious. Next weekend, some of the best in the B2B and B2C world will meet under one roof at O’Cannabiz.

While there is plenty of uncertainty in the wake of legalization, there will surely be big changes coming to the Canadian cannabis industry. From health and wellness to beauty, tech, food and business, never mind legalities, the implications and opportunities are endless for involving the cannabis industry in almost every facet of life.

The second annual O’Cannabiz Conference and Expo will be held from June 7th to 9th and will feature some exciting talks with thought leaders from across North America. You can also expect to find health professionals, tech entrepreneurs, and licensed producers eager to speak with you about what they do. This event is open, so the public may also explore the latest regulations, industry standards and best practices for medicinal and recreational marijuana as well as real-life applications such as food infusions, wellness and beauty applications and technological innovations.

A few of the conference speakers and industry experts available include:

  • Maya Elisabeth, Owner and CEO of Om Edibles & Whoopi and Maya
  • Tracy Ryan, CEO of Cannakids
  • Alison Gordon, CEO of 48North Cannabis Co.
  • Hugo Alves, President and Director of Cannabis Wheaton

While this year’s event will be held outside of downtown, you will want to give yourself plenty of time to get there. In order to maximize your experience to get the most out of it, be sure to plan accordingly by consulting the schedule.
