While business and policy developments in Canadian cannabis generally grab most of the headlines, some of the most innovative and unsung developments happen behind the scenes in regards to the science and technology used by the industry.

To help celebrate and connect these members of the field together, Business of Cannabis has organized the Cannabis + Technology confrence, taking place this Friday.

The one-day event will showcase tech innovation from across the cannabis sector, covering the complete cannabis supply chain from cultivation technology to patient and consumer-facing technological advances.

Canada’s approach to legalizing cannabis has opened the innovation floodgates for canna-tech,” said Jay Rosenthal, Co-founder and President, Business of Cannabis. “Cannabis + Technology will highlight the innovators and companies leading the charge.”

Some of the speakers include Richard Carleton, CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange, Karim Ramji, CIO of the Ontario Cannabis Store, and more.

Canada is already the global hub of cannabis finance,” said Richard Carleton, CEO, Canadian Securities Exchange. “We also have a unique opportunity to be the hub of technological innovation in the cannabis sector.”
