You may like cannabis; you may even love it. But ask yourself: Do you understand it? If you’re curious and want to educate yourself ahead of legalization this summer, you’re going to want to be in Vancouver next weekend.

Almost 200 exhibitors from across North America and Europe will be showcasing everything from growing accessories to vape essentials, the latest cannabis innovations to live cooking demos and so much more.
