Mar 14, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Globally, there are four major sectors of the cannabis market poised to dominate the worldwide stage: industrial hemp, CBD wellness, medical cannabis and the adult use/recreational market. All of them are intertwined, however each will develop at a different pace dependent on the culture of the country and region. In this session, companies operating on the global stage talk about the future of the global cannabis market on these four fronts. They’ll discuss how regulations are predicted to evolve, impacting trade and politics, and they’ll analyze the friction between industrial, medical and recreational. They’ll also discuss which countries will emerge as cultivation centers and innovation hubs and what countries will sit out this billion dollar opportunity.
