Welcome to CHCE 2017

With the Canadian Government set to introduce legislation on Cannabis legalization in the spring of 2017, it will be a ground-breaking year for the Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo (CHCE). Expect intense interest in the event as top international and national neurologists, researchers, medical, professionals, advocates, authors and Cannabis pioneers gather at the University of British Columbia (UBC) on May 6 and 7, 2017 to continue the dialogue and further understand the benefits of Cannabis for Cancer, Arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Insomnia, Crohn’s Disease, Anxiety and Depression, Skin Care, as well as overall Health and Wellness.

Thanks to your support and valuable contributions, CHCE 2017 will be going into its third year. The event has grown since its inception in 2015, and last year was highly successful, becoming the largest Cannabis Conference in Canada, with over 900 attendees who visited the 60+ exhibit booth Expo and participated in two days of scientific presentations and 13 panel discussions.
