2nd Annual Cannabis Compliance Summit

2nd Annual Cannabis Compliance Summit

  • Google Calendar ICS

Regulators. Testing Labs. Service Providers. Operators. The Right People in One Place.

With increasing legalization of both recreational and medicinal marijuana, the cannabis testing industry is ripe for exponential growth. Cannabis lab testing requirements are drawing a lot of attention and are under increased scrutiny from state regulators, testing labs, cultivators, producers, retailers and patients. Uniform national testing and operational standards and protocols need to be developed and implemented to ensure products’ consistency for safety and efficacy.

Lack of unity across states and internationally is creating cannabis lab testing confusion. It’s hard for operators to stay on top of the new and changing rules and methodologies. Thresholds differ from state to state; different methods are generating various results; local jurisdictions are creating procedures that many operators must understand. There are many more implementation issues and challenges that cannabis entrepreneurs need to overcome to be able to stay compliant in this highly competitive business.

Creating uniform state standards and federal cannabis regulation is crucial. The 2nd Annual Cannabis Compliance Summit, July 19 – 21, 2017 in Los Angeles, is the premier event for decision makers that brings the policy makers in the same room with the testing labs, equipment and technology providers, operators and industry experts to create uniform cannabis industry frameworks.

    The State of Legal Cannabis

    The State of... Legal Cannabis

    TUE, MAY 30

    7:30P - 9:00P

    THE PARLOR

    Please log in to RSVP

    Last year Californians voted overwhelmingly to legalize adult-use cannabis, officially taking effect on January 1, 2018. On the heels of legalization, many are predicting an unprecedented "green rush" of new companies, brands and investors quickly moving into the space, with the cannabis category growing into an estimated $7 billion industry in 2018 alone.

    With this explosive growth potential there are many challenges to be addressed, including state and federal regulation, banking, licensing, packaging/labeling guidelines, taxes and, of course, how Trump's new administration will be involved with this burgeoning new category. One thing is for certain: the San Francisco Bay Area will most certainly play an instrumental role in defining the modern cannabis industry.

    Join us for a conversation moderated by David Downs, Cannabis Editor at the San Francisco Chronicle, and a panel of industry visionaries and experts, as they discuss the questions, challenges and exciting future of the California cannabis industry.

    Panelists:

    Steve Deangelo (Founder, Harborside)

    Daniel Grace (Founder & CEO, Dark Heart Nurseries)

    Jim Patterson (CEO, Eaze)

    Christie Strong (CMO, Kiva Confections)

    ICACO International Cannabis Conference

    ICACO International Cannabis Conference

    The ICACO Experience 2017

    advancing cannabis, linking people.

    The ICACO 2017 Conference is the global interdisciplinary gathering of the greatest minds from the fields of: Agriculture, Genetics, Industrial Hemp, Medical Cannabis Research, and Investment / Entrepreneurship where they will discuss and emerge the work they are doing to better understand this remarkable plant and how their work will shape future cannabis regulations.

    The Cannabis plant is truly remarkable, producing a broad spectrum of pharmacologically active phytochemicals, including cannabinoids, terpenoids, and phenolic compounds. The major cannabinoids, THC and CBD, have been extensively studied in recent decades and have been shown to have therapeutic effects on the endocannabinoid system and other important signaling pathways.

    Animal studies and clinical trials in human subjects suggest potential benefits across a broad range of therapeutic areas, including: epilepsy, spasticity in multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, chronic pain, migraine, fibromyalgia, neuroinflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and the treatment of a variety of cancer types.

    This research has caused a lift of cannabis prohibition in a number of states and countries, as voters and government officials now recognize the many therapeutic benefits cannabis provides.

    Now more than ever, research into the safety, quality, and efficacy of cannabis is critical as these municipalities draft legislation that will regulate how the plant is produced, distributed, and consumed.

    Steve DeAngelo of Harborside Invited to Debate in UK

     

     

    (Oakland, California) -In a forward thinking move, Oxford has invited American cannabis leader, advocate and educator Steve DeAngelo, to participate in a debate on drugs. During the Oxford Union debate sessions, DeAngelo will appear Thursday, February 16th at 8 PM at The Oxford Union, Frewin Court, Oxford, OX1. Tel.  +44 (0) 1865-2453.

     

    DeAngelo is Chief Executive Officer of world renowned Harborside, a medical cannabis dispensary in Oakland, California and the largest in the United States with over 200,000 patients. Harborside is widely regarded as the gold standard of medical cannabis practices in the US.  DeAngelo and his team co-founded the first cannabis laboratory - Steep Hill, crafted the first municipal cannabis tax, developed the first senior and veteran outreach programs, and created the first angel investment network -The ArcView Group - which focuses exclusively on legal cannabis opportunities.  Harborside offers a wide selection of complementary health services to their members that include nutrition, yoga classes, acupuncture, chiropractic and other wellness services.

     

    More than 25 countries around the globe are engaged in a lively debate as to whether taking cannabis is a morally justifiable and life-enhancing activity.   The stigmas around cannabis use continue to fade worldwide.Nowthat compassionate lawsexist in 29 U.S. states and the District of Columbia - 8 of which now fully legal for adults over 21- it is apparent that the conversation has evolved.

     

    About Oxford Union Debates:

    The Society's formal Thursday evening debates have taken place since 1823 and remain the jewel in the crown of the Oxford Union.The debates were Founded on an ideal of the Freedom of Speech, when religion and politics were off-limits within the University. Harold Macmillan called these debates "the last bastion of free speech in the Western world".The forms of debate are similar to that in the House of Commons, with all remarks addressed to the President or Chairman, and Members referred to as "honorable", standing on each side of the house to oppose each other. The dispatch boxes used in the debates were originally from the Commons and were a gift from Winston Churchill.

     

    About Harborside:

    Operating since 2007 and celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2016, Harborside (formerly,Harborside Health Center) is the largest, nonprofit medical cannabis dispensary and wellness center in the United States. Harborside has over 200,000 registered patient-members and continues to set an example of responsible cannabis distribution in Oakland and San Jose, California.  Co-founded by longtime activist and entrepreneur, Steve DeAngelo, Harborside is now overseen by FLRish Retail Management & Security Services LLC.

     

    Over the past decade, DeAngelo and his team have introduced many industry original practices.  Harborside was first in the nation to offer a tax system for the city of Oakland, offered lab-tested, CBD-rich medicine; first in the country to support education for seniors, veterans and families with severely ill children; and the first to treat children with severe epilepsy. Harborside is one of the prime advocates of diversity, compliance, sustainability and social justice in the industry.As California moves to enact Proposition 64 Harborside is devoted to ensuring that their core values are integrated into adult-use legalization, and to remain true to their mission: “To help build a world that lives by the values cannabis teaches us.”
