What’s New With Cannabis

October 7, 2021
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM CDT
Location: E451A

I'm curious to learn more about what is happening in the cannabis space and how I can apply that information to my current and future business.

The burgeoning cannabis industry is both exciting yet frustratingly out of reach for convenience retailers due to restrictive licensing requirements in adult-use marijuana states and a regulatory gray area for hemp-derived CBD ingestibles. Yet if convenience retailers want to succeed in both the legal hemp market and the currently illegal marijuana market when and if it’s legalized federally, there’s lot that can be learned from experts in the cannabis space. This session will feature a leading Canadian dispensary CEO, the CEO of one of the largest cannabis industry publications and NACS’ director of government relations to discuss trends, regulatory updates and everything convenience retailers need to know about this exciting new category. **Ingestible CBD and marijuana/THC products are not available for sale, and the FDA maintains that the sale of such products is illegal under the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act.
