Cannabis Expo – Edmonton

By

To our friends, exhibitors and supporters of The Cannabis Expo:

We are in uncharted territories, and these last few weeks have been extremely tumultuous and unprecedented. We have watched and are watching daily as our community takes extraordinary precautions doing their best to flatten the curve and looking after the safety of the community first and foremost.

This has impacted many of us severely, with temporary business and event closures, staff layoffs and personal distancing. Our livelihoods changing remarkably, and our businesses shaken. However, while times are unprecedented and circumstances are fluid, we also know this is temporary. We still need to plan for the future and look towards the next Edmonton Cannabis Expo.

Our team is committed to providing a platform dedicated to strengthening the community, where shopping local can and will help support our customers as business owners to get through these uncertain times.

Currently, the Edmonton Cannabis Expo has been rescheduled to October 3 & 4, 2020

We are grateful to see our community come together and grateful for your continued patience and support.

Be well, be kind, be safe,
The Cannabis Expo Team

NORML Canada and Cannabis Amnesty are on the frontlines of lobbying for important issues of justice, liberation, and a truly free and fair legal cannabis landscape.

The benefit takes place on Sunday, September 27th online and at 420 Cannabis Court in Toronto, a safe and spacious adults-only outdoor legal cannabis lounge at 222 Spadina Avenue. There will be high-profile speakers, comedians, and free prizes and giveaways for attendees – including cannabis products and accessories!
