“Chris and I had the extreme pleasure of attending our very first Cannabis & Hemp Conference and Expo last July 2016 in Vancouver. … All the guest speakers, including scientists, doctors, growers, and many in the business of Cannabis were extremely interesting! The trade show portion offered an opportunity to see the wide range of products and services available in this fast advancing industry as well as an opportunity to network! The 2017 Conference is well worth attending for anyone with a vested interest or just a minor interest in Cannabis as medicine or for recreational use.”
