State Regulators, Canna Operators and Testing Experts Gather to Evaluate the Cannabis Industry at the Canna West Summit

After three successful Cannabis Compliance Summits on the east and west coasts, Infocast is proud to announce the return of the Canna West: Compliance, Testing & Product Safety Summit, taking place June 5-7, 2018 in Redondo Beach, CA. The Summit will bring regulators, policymakers and testing experts together with cannabis operators to share industry best practices.

Estimates suggest that the combined medical and adult-use market may be worth $5 billion by 2019 in California alone, while the forecasts for national and global canna markets are revised, upward, on a daily basis. To take advantage of these new opportunities, industry players must learn how to navigate through the evolving regulatory framework. The Summit will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from regulators and learn best practices from their peers and industry experts.

Critical topics to be discussed revolve around navigating local, county, state and national regulations for all steps in the cannabis chain – from growing to extraction, infused products to retail, track & trace implementation to contaminant thresholds,  packaging, labelling, and so much more, all just in advance of California’s mandatory July 1 testing launch. State regulators and health officials will be sharing notes and driving operators toward uniform testing, labeling, operational standards, protocols and best practices.

High profile brands and growers participating at the Canna West Compliance Summit include MedMen, OutCo, Meadow, Big Moon Sky, Bud and Bloom, Chemistry, Constance Therapeutics, Berkeley Patients Group, Love’s Oven, LLC, and many more.

Additionally, Alexis Podesta, Secretary, California Business Consumer Services and Housing Agency, Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer, Sr. of the California State Assembly, Alice Mead of GW Pharmaceuticals and Lindsay Robinson of the California Cannabis Industry Association are the featured keynote speakers.

“A most informative conference with lots of serious, important information for an emerging industry. The panelists were extremely prepared, articulate and transparent.” – Senator Eleanor Sobel, Consultant, ELEANOR SOBEL CONSULTANTS
