Blakes Cannabis Roundtable

Blakes Cannabis Roundtable
Live Webcast/Toronto, June 18, 2019 - 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals will soon be permitted for sale in Canada. While we have an idea of how these new forms of cannabis will be regulated, the burning question facing the industry is how do current participants adapt and what opportunities and challenges will arise?
Join us to hear thought leaders discuss the issues related to production, sale and advertising of these new product forms and how these developments will impact the market.
