2nd Annual Emerald Conference Explores the Science of Cannabis

San Luis Obispo, CA – January 5, 2016

Emerald Scientific is proud to present The 2nd Emerald Conference: The Science of Cannabis, on Thursday and Friday, January 21-22, 2016, at The Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas, NV. 

The two-day conference will explore how analytical testing, cannabinoid extraction, and basic research of cannabinoid and terpene compounds affects labs, dispensaries, producers, clinicians and policymakers in this rapidly growing industry. 

“It is essential for the cannabis industry to demonstrate the ability to self-regulate in order to build legitimacy, and we have a very narrow window of time in which to do that,” said Wes Burk, Vice President of Emerald Scientific. “We want to give stakeholders a chance to get together and collaborate on strategies for the future of the industry, to ensure that we participate in the development of regulation, and to leverage the current momentum.”  

Participants in The Emerald Conference will hear from top industry experts on scientific methods and policy, collaborate during open panel discussions, network with industry colleagues during receptions, and see the latest products from exhibitors. 

Focus points of the conference will include Intra-lab Comparison and Proficiency Testing (ILC/PT), pesticide analysis, clinical applications, formulation chemistry, regulatory trends, and new point-of-use analyzers.

Speakers will include Mark Steven Wallace, M.D. of UCSD; Amanda Rigdon of RESTEK; John Abrams, Ph.D., of Abrams Bioconsulting; John McKay, Ph.D. of Waters, Frank Dorman, Ph.D., of Pennsylvania State University; Cindy Orser, Ph.D. of DigiPath Labs; Robert Martin, Ph.D., of CW Analytical; Cynthia Ludwig of AOCS; Rodger Voelker, Ph.D. of O.G. Analytical; Mitzi Rettinger of Cerilliant; and more.

“We can’t emphasize enough how critical this information is to ensure consumer fairness of pricing, patient safety, and the success of the cannabis industry,” Burk said.
