Recently I was privileged to travel to Las Vegas to attend the 10th year of MJBizCon, the largest marijuana business event in the United States, for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck.
This event is a wonderful chance for those of us in the business of medical cannabis to meet, network, share information, learn about new products and processes and meet vendors. The focus of the event is how to better cultivate, grow, process, package and market our cannabis-based products. Daymond John, co-star of ABC’s “Shark Tank” and founder/CEO of Fubu, was challenging and inspirational as our keynote speaker.
On the vendor floor every year I’m able to learn about products and processes that can streamline our business practices and make them more efficient, while ensuring that our products are the best our patients can buy. I also learn about how the industry is growing nationwide and share First State Compassion’s success in Delaware.
Among the several educational seminars and networking events this year, the focus was how to incorporate more inclusion in the cannabis business, preparing businesses for legalization, and how the growing business side can interact with “traditional” cannabis culture.
As I process this whirlwind trip, I’ll be writing more about what I heard, saw and learned at MJBizCon 2021. But in the meantime, know that I’m always working hard to bring our patients the most up-to-date information about our products and the industry to make their experience with First State Compassion as wonderful and healing as it can be.
