The New Era of Cannabis
Just because we’re isolated, doesn’t mean we aren’t connected.
The cannabis industry has something inherent and enviable about it that other industries do not: community. The very nature of the plant and its survival through prohibition is rooted in community. Today’s technology keeps that connection alive.
Drawing from the cannabis industry’s best practitioners, leaders, and advocates, the Emerge Virtual Cannabis Conference & Expo pairs talent with virtual reality technology to keep the industry educated on the latest in cannabis discoveries, trends, innovations, and policies.
