CannaGrow Expo: The Comic-Con for Current and Future Cannabis Growers
Cannabis may still be illegal in some states and at the federal level, but the people of the United States continue to show their support for full legalization. The cannabis industry persists and grows by leaps and bounds and it seems every day we are introduced to new technology, grow methods and new cultivars.
If ever you’d thought you might want to get into the cultivation side of cannabis, the 7th annual CannaGrow Expo is a must attend.
This weekend-long event will be hosted at The Palm Springs Convention Center and Renaissance Hotel in Palm Springs, California. Anyone attending the expo can stay at this fabulous hotel for $199.00 per night with no resort fees!
With the event info out of the way, let’s talk about the cannabis content we can really nerd out on. This year, there are going to be more than thirty-five cultivation experts sharing their success stories with attendees. From soils to nutrients and branding to compliance, there is a guest speaker for almost any topic imaginable including environmental sustainability as a business model with Eco Firma Farms CEO Jesse Peters.
We’re especially excited about the Extraction Summit. It runs concurrently with CannaGrow Expo sessions on day two, and explores topics specific to cannabis extraction.
Master hashishin Frenchy Cannoli will be kicking things off on Sunday morning. All the speakers are noted experts in their respective niches, and will share their invaluable knowledge, so make sure to bring a notebook or two for copious notes.
But, that’s not all! In addition to the numerous guest speakers, there are going to be over one-hundred vendors at this expo. Companies like microBIOMETER which is dedicated to quality soil testing, to determine the health and fertility of the soils used in growing cannabis, will be there to talk to attendees. Another exciting company gracing the CannaGrow expo with their presence is iKrusher. They have an extensive line of vape pens and accessories and are looking to expanding into all fifty states. This is especially great for newer dispensary owners who’d like to get high-quality product in their stores.
Let’s talk price. To get the most bang for your buck, you are going to want to get the two-day all access pass. It costs 299.00 and includes full access to the expo and all educational sessions, daily refreshments, lunch, happy hour and access to the evening events they have planned. Keep in mind this all access deal is limited, so book it before it’s too late!
The next level is a one-day all access pass, which costs $199.00. This level includes everything listed in the two-day pass, and you get to choose which day to attend, either Saturday or Sunday.
The last package option is a two-day pass for $99.00, which is access to the expo only. This does not include any of the presentations by special guest speakers, but it does give the attendee the opportunity to network with vendors as well as other current and future growers and/or owners.
Regardless of which package you choose, this is a fantastic opportunity to get out to sunny California and meet people in the ever-growing cannabis industry. It is a great place to broaden knowledge and learn how to best cultivate your cannabis crop. Past attendees have said things like, “CannaGrow was like meeting up with the family you never knew you had.”
There are a few things to keep in mind. First, the above listed prices are a limited time offer and prices increase tremendously for those who wait to purchase their tickets at the door. Secondly, while this is an expo dedicated to the cultivation of cannabis, there will be no marijuana on the premises. It is still illegal to consume at public venues. However, California did become a recreational legal state in January so while you are there, take some time to hit up one of the many fabulous dispensaries in the Palm Springs area.
