Cannabis Quality Strategies & Solutions Summit in Los Angeles, July 19-21

The Cannabis Quality Strategies & Solutions Summit, coming to Los Angeles this July 19-21, will draw cannabis professionals and enthusiasts from around the country for a three-day conference to examine, explore, and celebrate the cannabis industry.

Cannabis Quality — hosted by nationally renowned business event producer Infocast — promises an industry perspective unique from other cannabis conferences by emphasizing the importance of first-movers, industry experts, and policymakers.


Healthy relationships between entrepreneurs, policymakers and state-employed regulators are especially helpful when building a successful marijuana enterprise. Therefore, Cannabis Quality is bringing regulators from five western states that are leading the charge in cannabis normalization:

  • Fiona Ma, a CPA on the California State Board of Equalization;
  • Ken Groggel of the New Mexico Department of Health;
  • Heather Krug, MS with the Colorado Department of Health;
  • Shannon Swantek of the Oregon Health Authority; and
  • Kristi Weeks, JD with the Washington Department of Health.

Cannabis Quality is also bringing a host of esteemed experts, professionals, and researchers to share success stories, advice, and answer questions about all things cannabis.

Leading cannabis researchers who will be speaking at the Cannabis Quality summit include Ethan Russo, PhD, who is often considered to be at the forefront of cannabis terpene and endocannabinoid research; and Mowgli Holmes, PhD, who has been working with a team to create a three dimensional map of the entire cannabis genome.

Famed medical cannabis researcher Sue Sisley, MD — who has advocated heavily with state legislatures in the past to approve studies on cannabis treatment for veterans with PTSD — will also be sharing her knowledge and advocacy experiences at the summit.

Josh Eades, PhD and Vice President Chief Science Officer for Tilray, will be speaking as a representative for one of Canada’s largest and most successful medical cannabis producers.

Other notable individuals who will be featured at the summit include:

“We made an effort to go beyond the regional and partisan bias of many cannabis events,” said Jimmy Ma, Marketing Manager for Infocast. “We have state regulators from five different western states, we have representatives of different trade groups and nonprofits that have strong differences as to how legislation and regulation should proceed.”

“We provide a neutral platform, and we are experts at organizing intimate, ‘decision-maker’ events that bridge technical, policy and business needs,” said Ma.


The Cannabis Quality Strategies & Solutions Summit will be held on July 19-21 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles, located at 506 S. Grand Ave.

Event attendees are offered a room rate of $169 at the hotel, which is famous for its 1920’s themed decor.

Infocast is planning to return with another Cannabis Quality event in 2017, and has potential plans for two other MJ-focused events: one focused on investment, the other on cannabis scientific research.
