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 Tissue Culture


Plant tissue culture is a group of methods in which plant fragments, seeds, or individual cells may be used to propagate genetically identical offspring. Although not new to the plant sciences, tissue culture has been rapidly gaining popularity in the cannabis sector due to its ability to produce large numbers of identical plants under sterile laboratory conditions.

The cannabis industry is bringing in a lot of career opportunities to the Canadian market and is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing sectors in Canada. The rapid growth of tissue culture in the cannabis industry means there is a need for knowledgeable individuals to work in the managerial and technical roles. This workshop will give attendees a comprehensive look into tissue culture and its applications in cannabis production. Topics will include:

Introduction to tissue culture in plants
Techniques in tissue culture
Designing a tissue culture lab that suits your goals and budget

Legalization Pros & Cons


Legalization Pros & Cons is a cannabis-friendly benefit event to raise funds for NORML Canada and Cannabis Amnesty!

As Canada approaches the two-year anniversary of Legalization, it’s high time to bring our cannabis community together to praise the positives and fix the negatives! Join fellow cannabis enthusiasts on September 27th for an inspirational gathering to support the important work that still needs to be done.

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. All donations raised from ticket sales and online contributions will be fully and evenly shared between NORML Canada and Cannabis Amnesty.

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!

And if you can’t participate in person that day, that’s okay! The event will be broadcast live online via the Pot TV and Cannabis Culture networks – and the fundraising drive will continue online for three weeks, ending on the two-year anniversary of Legalization in Canada, October 17th. Cannabis Culture Magazine is matching the first $1,000 raised from the public, and encourages fellow cannabis businesses to join the “Donation Match Box” to help amplify the positive vibes!

Join us for this exciting opportunity to help make Legalization better, together!



Tickets can be purchased in advance online, or obtained with cash purchase at the venue before the event. COVID safety protocols will be followed, including social distance space for seating, as well as masks and hand sanitizer for attendees who need them. Cash ticket payments and cash donations will be handled only by attendees, who will put the money into a bucket of soapy water (with Dr. Bronner’s hemp soap, naturally!) to be cleaned and sanitized.

Online donations will be processed after the final day of the fundraiser drive on October 17th, and divided fully and equally between NORML Canada and Cannabis Amnesty. Cannabis Culture Magazine is matching the first $1,000 raised by the public and sponsoring the Toronto event.

Preventative Control Plan (PCP) design and Implementation for Food and Cannabis Edibles industries


Preventative Controls is required for food and cannabis (edibles) industries. Cannabis Regulations requires licence holder who conducts activities in relation to a cannabis extract or edible cannabis to prepare, retain, maintain and implement a written preventive control plan. Safe Food for Canadians also requires the licence holders to prepare, keep and maintain a preventative control plan.

Due to the demand from the industry personnel and students, AAPS is introducing this new webinar. This course will go in-depth understanding the requirements for PCP. After completing this webinar students will be able to develop, validate, implement and maintain Preventative Control Plans.

Sanitation Program for Cannabis Production – Cannabis Act


Good Production Practices (GPP) of the Cannabis Act mandates that Licensed Producers ensure the cleanliness of the premises and equipment. Having effective sanitation and pre-operational Inspection procedures can minimize the risk of contamination of your product, ingredients, processing aids, packaging materials, and product contact surfaces.

It is therefore extremely important to understand the fundamental principle of sanitation procedures and to implement and use these procedures effectively. Lack of proper and validated cleaning and sanitation program can result in costly contamination, return of products, and recalls.

This course and workshop concentrate on three important aspects of an effective sanitation program; Premise, Equipment and Personnel. Participants are given a thorough understanding of the importance of cleaning and sanitizing procedures and their responsibilities, and why these are important parts of their (and not cleaners`) jobs.
