About

From one of the producers who brought you last year's New Jersey Cannabis Symposiums, where over 1200 attendees helped spur dozens of media-mentions and draw attention to the excitement of the local industry.


Program

Hear from data scientists, application consultants, local government experts, ancillary business owners, and cannabis brand leaders as they discuss how New Jersey is prepared for adult-use legislation and the expansion of the medical program.

This event brings together some of the industry’s top minds on social advocacy, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement to help clarify the state’s priorities towards these topics and how best to approach community involvement and social equity.

Meet attendees from New Jersey, the tri-state area, and across the country interested in the cannabis industry and learn how to self-brand for the expanding industries in our region.

Learn from cannabis pioneers whose experience with shifting regulations, complex corporate structure, federal limitations, and local licensing patterns will save you time and energy as your ideas mature in the next few years.
