Why Cannatech Will Disrupt Traditional Tech


Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

In this thesis-style presentation, we'll discuss how the cannabis industry is paving the way for traditional markets to adopt new and innovative technologies and processes. As the most regulated industry in the world, custom solutions are being developed to meet the unique requirements related to maintaining a compliant chain of custody, managing a diverse workforce, handling the challenges associated with money movement, and more. Cannabis is the perfect market size test tube that has been surviving with very little, yet has proven to be creating lean, mean, revenue producing machines. How can these solutions be implemented outside of cannabis to solve the needs of other industries? Where are we already seeing cannabis-specific technology drive outside industry change?
