Technology and Innovation Showcase, Sponsored by Cannvas MedTech
Currently, more than 260,000 Canadians rely on access to medical cannabis, and this number will only grow as an understanding of the medical benefits of cannabis become better understood.
Medical Cannabis Week is engaging industry leaders, medical disruptors, tech innovators as well as educators, researchers, regulators and patients in a conversation about the fastest growing therapy option available to Canadians.
Founded by Business of Cannabis and supported 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.
