Cannabis Expo – Edmonton


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

Cannabis Act Review: Medical Cannabis and Cannabis Health Products


On the second anniversary of legalization of recreational cannabis for adult use, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s National Cannabis Working Group is launching an industry-led review of the Cannabis Act to provide recommendations on how the government should improve Canada’s federal legislative and regulatory frameworks for cannabis.

The Cannabis Act, which came into force on October 17, 2018, requires that the Minister of Health initiate a review of the Act by October 17, 2021, three years following the legalization of recreational cannabis for adult use. In advance of the federal government’s review of the Act, the National Cannabis Working Group will be leading an industry review of the legislation.

The review of the Act will be led by Eric Foster, Partner and Leader of the Dentons Canada cannabis practice. Dentons is a global leader in the cannabis industry, providing cannabis industry stakeholders with the full suite of legal services they need in order to grow, protect, operate and finance their businesses, both in Canada and internationally.

Cannabis Education in Dispensaries


Closing the knowledge gap for budtenders and customers

Gone are the days where people buy whatever weed is available from the guy at the corner (or hiding around the corner). With legalization came education and today’s cannabis users expect the same high level of consultation and customer service as with any other purchase decision.

Join us as we gather some of the industry’s brightest minds from each step of the supply chain — from seed to smoke and everything in between.

Together we will discuss the evolution of the cannabis consumer experience both from a medicinal and recreational perspective, what it will mean to be a budtender in the near future, and what defines a great dispensary and an outstanding consumer experience.

Whether you’re toying with the idea of becoming a budtender or a veteran of the trade honing their skills – or maybe you just love cannabis – this session is for you.
