Blakes Cannabis Roundtable

Cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals will soon be permitted for sale in Canada. While we have an idea of how these new forms of cannabis will be regulated, the burning question facing the industry is how do current participants adapt and what opportunities and challenges will arise?

Join us to hear thought leaders discuss the issues related to production, sale and advertising of these new product forms and how these developments will impact the market.

Panellists:

  • Mariana Fonar, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Lift Co.
  • Ian Haase, Chief Executive Officer, Motif Cannabis Ltd.
  • Dave Wright, VP of Digital, Green Tank Technologies
  • Karen Young, Chief Executive Officer, Muse Beverages
  • Christy Zhou, Vice President – Legal, Tilray, Inc.
  • Chris Nyberg, Blakes (Moderator)
