We are entering the most exciting era of the Canadian cannabis culture; there has never been a more important time to network and share our knowledge of this incredible
plant. Last summer I had the pleasure of speaking at an awesome conference in Vancouver hosted by the Conscious Living Network, and I am very happy to announce it will be even bigger and better this year! With an incredible lineup of speakers and intriguing debate format, this conference should be the highlight of the summer for cannabis enthusiasts.
Organizer Salimeh Tabrizi has once again gone out of her way to make sure this premier event will never be forgotten by those in attendance. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor and her gentle spirit and keen intellect are reflected in the thoughtful details and colourful displays.
Last year, the conference brought together speakers who shared their knowledge on the medicinal, historical, sacred and ceremonial use of the medicine as well as on governmental policy and public activism. The conference also honoured 10 conscious dispensaries and 11 other cannabis businesses keen to show their wares. It was an interesting mix of activists, businesspeople, and intellectuals. Having attended dozens of cannabis conventions, including many of my own, I would have to say that this was one of the most organized and well set-up events of this type in which I have ever been involved.
This year, the 2016 Cannabis and Hemp Conference will also have Jay Martin and his wonderful team at Cambridge House International working on the event with Salimeh. It will be a much bigger scale event this year, with a two day conference on July 9th and 10th at the beautiful Westin Bayshore hotel in downtown Vancouver. Having so much more conference time to network and share stories will no doubt make this a rich experience.
According to Salimeh, “The focus this year will be on deepening the dialogue on the medicinal benefits of cannabis, as well as the environmental and humanitarian re-evolution that is possible with the support of this magnificent plant. Never before has there been such a wealth of information and research on the practical, therapeutic and medicinal uses of Cannabis, as well as a growing understanding and acceptance of Cannabis on the part of the general public. ” With so much to cover, it will take 2 days to allow people to take advantage of all of the knowledge that will be shared.
