Are you wondering where the California cannabis industry is going? You’re not alone.
Companies and investors are encountering tremendous opportunities and unique challenges on a daily basis as the industry grows into what is expected to be more than a $5 billion industry in the state next year.
I’ll be joining a panel of industry experts for a free one-hour webinar. “The Pot Thickens: Building a Successful Cannabis Business in California” will take place Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.
It will cover latest industry trends and important considerations, such as obtaining permits and licenses, navigating the regulations, and structuring companies to maximize value to investors.
Additional topics include:
- Current banking issues, and how to navigate them;
- How to move from cultivation into extracted products;
- The dangers of pesticide contamination and what can be done about it; and
- How lab test data can affect the industry.
Joining me on the panel will be Dr. Paul Lessard, President & Chief Scientist, Delta9Labs; Adam Spiker, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Southern California Coalition; and Chris Vane, Director of Business Development, RoseRyan, Inc., who will host the event.
