The date for the roll-out of legal cannabis has been set. For the most part you are ready for the retail model your province has selected. As the rubber meets the road, however, new questions will emerge: Does legalization place an unsustainable financial and operational burden on municipalities? What is the impact on public safety? Are regulations effective in stopping drugged driving? What are neighbours complaining about? The list goes on...

At the same time, legalization of edibles is less than a year away. With the industry moving away from smoking options to meet the demands of a huge market in edibles, it’s time for municipalities and other government officials to understand the unique risks related to edibles and for the cannabis industry to think about what regulations might look like.

The bottom line is that legalization of edibles is not too far away! And If you’re not prepared, informed, and aware of the impact edibles will have you’ll be playing catch-up. Licensed producers need to be ready to take advantage of enormous opportunities. Regulators, public health and police need to know all they can about the unique impact pf edibles and take all necessary precautions. You need to understand:

  • Why we need special regulations for cannabis edibles;
  • Lessons learned in other jurisdictions;
  • Differences in the way flowers and edibles are metabolized;
  • The impact edibles will have on the size of the cannabis market;
  • anticipated local impact
  • and more...

Infonex’s Cannabis Flowers, Oils, Edibles and Places of Consumption is the ideal forum for getting the information you need to succeed. A faculty of experienced government officials and industry specialists will share their insights and review and clarify the in’s and outs of the first wave of regulations. You will also be preparing for the challenge of the edibles which are less than a year away from legalization. You will leave understanding the differences in how we metabolize flowers and edibles; the resulting risks; how to determine potency and purity of the edibles so the consumer understands what he or she is buying. Learn what marketing is permissible and what is not, how to keep edibles away from children, and how to support the key messages that are part of public education.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from those most able to provide the important information, insights and strategies you need to meet the complex challenges ahead. Register today and the up-front investment of time will repay you as you move forward more decisively and knowledgeably than you otherwise would have.
