The USA CBD Expo – So Much More Than Just CBD!

What better place to host the nation’s largest hemp and CBD expo, than in the Windy City, home of the nation’s largest convention center in the recently legalized state of Illinois? This year, The USA CBD Expo will be covering so much more than just CBD, including delta 8 THC, psilocybin, THCV, and so many more exciting cannabinoid products. We’ll see you there October 28th to 30th!

Are you a cannabis aficionado who is interested in learning more health benefits, legislative changes, events, industry trends, products deals, and so much more? If so, don’t forget to subscribe to The Delta 8 weekly Newsletter for the Best Delta 8 Deals.


Most of us are pretty amped up to finally get back to these largescale industry events. The opportunities to learn and build connections at in-person trade shows, compared to virtual events, are unparalleled. If you want to stay up to date on all the latest innovations and industry trends, conventions are a must. I learned so much as the last USA CBD Expo I attended, and this one is expected to be significantly busier, with a much larger variety of products than ever before.

It’s still The USA CBD Expo, so expect to see a lot of hemp and CBD products. However, this event is sponsored by 3chi so there will be a lot of Delta 8 THC, as well as CBN, CBG, CBC, and even THCV. If it’s hemp-derived, you can expect to learn about it at the convention.

Another thing that will be unique about this year’s show is that it will include psilocybin too! Psilocybin is the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms, and over the last few years there has been a growing focus on using this compound for therapeutic purposes, especially in the treatment of anxiety and depression. A lot of cities and states have mushroom legislation in the works, and it is prime time to start learning about it.

Again, The USA CBD Expo will be held at the McCormick Place convention center in Chicago, IL, from October 28th to 30th (plus events in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Medellin, Columbia in 2022). We’re expecting to see over 10,000 attendees, more than 50 speakers, and upwards of 300 exhibitors at the event, and we at CBD Testers are very excited to attend!

2020 Hemp & Cannabis Events You Don’t Want To Miss (U.S. and Canada)

Networking is one of the most important and beneficial
things you could do to build your brand, regardless of the industry you’re in.

If you are in the cannabis or hemp industry, however,
networking is more important than ever. Traditional advertising options can be
limited, regulations are constantly changing, and it can be difficult to
navigate this world without some reliable business connections. Not only that,
but if you have a product or service you’re selling, sometimes the best way to teach
people about is through in-person, hands-on demonstrations.

Sure you can use social media to network and share videos of
products, but something can be said for meeting people in person, exchanging a
nice firm handshake and discussing business in real life. This is why trade
shows, expos, and conventions remain among the top tools for expanding a
business. And they’re not just for people who are new to the industry, even
established companies and well-known professionals can always benefit from
meeting new people and learning about the new products and trends that develop
every year.

Below detailed list of the top cannabis, hemp, and CBD events in the United States and Canada taking place during 2020.  We hope to see you at a few!
