Currently, more than than 260,000 Canadians rely on access to medical cannabis, and this number will grow as an understanding of the medical benefits of cannabis become better understood.
The BofC Medical Cannabis Week engages the industry leaders, medical disruptors, tech innovators as well as educators, researchers, regulators and patients in a conversation on the fastest growing therapy option available to Canadians.
Founded by Business of Cannabis and observed by a series of founding partners, Medical Cannabis Week will expand the dialogue and examine the potential for medical cannabis to deliver significant and positive patient benefits.
