The USA CBD Expo 2021 – Coming to a City Near You!

After a more than a year of COVID restrictions and so many industries moving toward zoom meetings, remote jobs, and other virtual work options, I was starting to doubt that we would ever get the opportunity to engage in face-to-face cannabis conferences again. Thankfully, I was wrong.

As progressive as we are in the cannabis industry, it’s no surprise that event coordinators and companies are all clamoring to get back to in-person events. Last year’s virtual conferences left much to be desired – through absolutely no fault of the event coordinators – but we all know the real magic happens when you communicate face-to-face. When you actually get to see the booths, hold the products, and have real-life conversations with people, it’s much easier to make those life-changing deals and connections.
This year, The USA CBD Expo is back in full swing and touring the country as we speak

CBD Explained

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is the most abundant, non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. It is legal, although whether it’s derived from hemp or cannabis remains an issue. All “legal” hemp products, including smokable buds, must have less than 0.3% CBD, which can be difficult to achieve sometimes, especially if the CBD was extracted from THC-containing cannabis.

CBD has numerous health benefits. It can be used to provide relief from mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression, it’s frequently used to manage chronic pain in lieu of addictive opiates, it has anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s been a successful treatment for certain forms of epilepsy. It’s actually so effective at treating the latter, that there is an FDA-approved, CBD-based medication called Epidiolex that is used to treat to rare forms of epilepsy: Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

420 Vancouver 2021 is upon us and the party is happening at home. This isn’t a big shock because after all, we stoners are a responsible bunch. Smoking weed can get you coughing; plus, if you can get baked enough to mess up the rotation, you’ll get baked enough to pass a joint when you […]

Be Part of History With These Digital 420 Celebrations

Things certainly are different from when we first realized April 2020 would mean a month-long 420 party. But, thanks to coronavirus, we’re social distancing instead of enjoying group seshes. Don’t worry friends! We all know cannabis brings us together and weed will always find a way. To keep our spirits high, the cannabis community has come together to provide incredible digital 420 celebrations with music, art and entertainment to help get us through this historic moment. Moreover, many of these events are fundraising for people who have been hit hard as a result of the pandemic. 

With music from Wiz Khalifa to Melissa Etheridge, sessions with Berner and B Real as well as group sessions with Tommy Chong and other industry titans, tune in to these digital 420 celebrations from coast to coast.

Chronic Relief

In the spirit of legendary fundraisers like the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon, Chronic Relief looks to bring many of the same aspects of the time-honored tradition, but in a virtual world where viewers can join a live-stream. The event will act as a platform to raise money for charity with 100% of all funds raised via donation during the broadcast will be given to Feeding America. A donation link will be visible on the live-stream screen.

Additionally, viewers can expect to see video segments from artists, influencers and celebrities. Live musical performances and interviews with influencers will stream live from organizer Fairchild’s Seattle-based studio in a true variety-show format.

Haus of Jane

Weedmaps Presents Higher Together

Should you still be seshing with friends right now? Probably not so much — at least not IRL. But you should still keep the circle strong! Let’s not take COVID-19 lightly. As puff, puff, passing is pretty much a no-no, let’s sesh virtually. Keep the virtual smoke circle going at home and share your #seshfromhome with Weedmaps. Join Wiz Khalifa, Berner, Billy Ray Cyrus and a host of other artists for their digital 420 celebration while helping raise money for the Last Prisoner Project.

The Great American Sesh In

The Great American Sesh In is an online cannabis, music and arts festival designed to keep this year’s 420 celebration safe, exciting, and a great reason to stay indoors. The goal is to flatten the 420 curve by encouraging patrons to visit dispensaries or order online early to be home and tune in on 4/20/20.

This telethon style event raises funds for first responders so the cannabis community can give back, and say thanks, to the very people who helped make cannabis an essential medicine. The event celebrates 420 with artists and musicians, comedians, industry luminaries, and special surprise and delight moments. 

420 World Record

Be part of history and help break the world record for “most people consuming cannabis on video chat” with 420record.com. Additionally, 100% of profits will be donated to helping free 40,000+ inmates convicted of non-violent marijuana crimes with the Last Prisoner Project.

420 Events: Which Weed Events are Canceled or Not Canceled This Year

As the coronavirus continues to threaten public safety in the United States and around the world, the cannabis community has been rallying. Considered an essential service, many dispensaries have remained open, offering curbside pickup or delivery to cannabis patients all across the country.

And though social distancing and self-isolation work hand in hand with pickup or delivery, large events and social gatherings have been shut down to slow the spread of the virus, 4/20 events and other national cannabis events included. While it is painful to put cannabis culture on hold, it’s important to stay indoors to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) urges the restriction of gatherings of more than 10 people — especially in high-risk areas. 

So if you were planning on attending a 4/20 event, check below for cancellations, postponements and events that have been moved to online-only come April 20.

Lastly, what’s the difference between social distancing and quarantine?

Vox recently reported on coronavirus and the utilization of social distancing to help quell the spread of the virus:

  • Quarantine: to separate individuals completely from the public if it is believed that they have been exposed, but aren’t yet showing, symptoms of sickness.
  • Social distancing: requires the public to refrain from social gatherings and maintain a conservative and clear radius around oneself and others when out and about.

Including these practices in your plan to help fight the virus will greatly and positively affect your community. Protecting those who are immunocompromised or most susceptible to the virus is the number one priority throughout this pandemic.  

Even if you are symptom-free, you can still be a carrier of coronavirus. According to various experts interviewed by The Atlantic, you should be avoiding social interaction as much as possible at this time. This includes skirting the gym, canceling non-essential appointments such as beauty treatments, stepping away from birthday parties and large family or friend gatherings, and keeping a healthy separation between you and the public when grocery shopping or running errands.

Coronavirus and Cannabis Conventions – List of Cancelled Industry Events

The novel coronavirus continuing to spread around the world
has taken the “work-from-home” concept to a whole new level.

At the moment, the global M.O. is to stay home as much as possible. Thankfully, we live in a time where that couldn’t be any easier. With abundant remote work opportunities, numerous product delivery options, and a slew of virtual services available, leaving the house is completely voluntary for some people.

That said, with people opting to stay home more and more, and governments around the world encouraging that by capping events at a certain number of attendees, many events are being forced to postpone or cancel altogether.

Here’s a look at some of the major cannabis events that will be experiencing scheduling changes over the next few months:

Major Cannabis Event Cancellations

ICBC Barcelona: “We deeply regret to inform you that ICBC Barcelona is canceled due to the US/Europe travel ban that was implemented a few hours ago this morning by the United States government in response to coronavirus.” Although they cited U.S. travel bans, there was also a cap imposed on the maximum number of attendees at any event in Spain.

SXSW Austin: For weeks, SXSW organizers have been saying that the event will continue as usual. Now, SXSW isn’t technically a cannabis event, but[AH1]  it’s important to the industry no less. The annual tech, music, and film festival held in downtown Austin, TX, canceled their event only 1 week before it was set to begin. This is the first time one their events has ever been cancelled in its 34-year history.

Coachella Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival: This is also technically not a cannabis event, but the giant music festival, held annually in the Southern California desert, bring an influx of business to the local recreational cannabis dispensaries. After days of speculation, the festival announced earlier this week that they will postpone the event until October.

Spannabis Barcelona: “As you may know, this morning, the Generalitat of Catalunya announced ‘extraordinary measures’ to respond to COVID-19 coronavirus disease. Much to our regret, that gatherings of more than 1,000 people at indoor or outdoor events have been banned, in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus in Catalonia. Spannabis has been postponed until the autumn. We will inform you shortly more about it.” Read the full announcement here:

Spannabis Forced To Postpone Citing Coronavirus Concerns

NECann Boston: “We are working with our venue partners and city officials to select a new date in 2020 and will update everyone as soon as we have specific information and details to share,” say NE Cann organizers. “All vendor registrations and pre-sale tickets will be honored for the new date.”

NoCo Denver: The expo, which organizers say is the hemp industry’s largest gathering, was scheduled March 26-28 at the Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel and the National Western Complex. The locations will be the same, however, the dates have been changed to August 6-8.

High times cannabis cup central valley, California: This has been pretty hush-hush with no large announcements made online. Just direct emails sent to those who will be attending. Originally scheduled for April 18-19 in Sacramento, the Cup has been postponed. More information on rescheduling is expected to come shortly.

Natural Products Expo West Anaheim: “New Hope Network has made the difficult decision to postpone Natural Products Expo West in response to the global coronavirus situation. We know the impact of the postponement across the natural & organic products industry has been significant, and we are committed to doing all we can to alleviate that impact.” They are hoping to have a new date scheduled by mid to late-April.

CannaTech & Psytech Tel Aviv: March 30 – “Our No. 1 concern is the health and safety of our attendees and speakers, our partners, our colleagues and our vendors,” Saul Kaye, CEO of iCAN: Israel-Cannabis, said in announcing the decision. The company owns the conference. “While we are disappointed to postpone both CannaTech Tel Aviv and PsyTech Summit, we are very confident it will be worth the wait,” Kaye added.

CannaTech Tel Aviv Postponed Due To Coronavirus

Costly and Inconvenient

For many businesses, especially newer ones, there is no better place than a large convention to demonstrate your product and make valuable industry connections. The entire purpose of these events is to network, and although we’ve come a long way in the world in virtual networking, there’s some occasions where old fashion, face-to-face interaction really can’t be beat. A busy convention is also one of the best ways to appeal a larger number of potential business leads than normal – and all this is accomplished in a matter of a few days. If done correctly, industry events can lead to a tremendous boost in business.

Possible stagnation aside, the cancellation of events can
also be extremely costly – to both the event organizer and the attendees. Refunds
are naturally an issue when situations like this arise. Will a host be able to
get a full refund for a venue they’re no longer using? Will attendees be
reimbursed for everything they spent on travel and arrangements? What about
rescheduling? There is a lot of planning and a lot of financing associated with
making new event plans. It’s really a logistical nightmare for anyone who has a
large stake in one of these events.

Virtual Events?

Although this is a relatively new concept, and it has yet to be done for any cannabis or hemp industry events, some major organizers are moving their conventions to the digital realm. For example, at the beginning of the month, Adobe announced they would be cancelling their large event in Las Vegas and instead, hosting it online.

CBG Isolate Deal: New Price on CBG Isolate – Starting at Only $3,750/kilo

“Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring
and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure we are taking the
necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of Adobe Summit
attendees,” said Anil Chakravarthy, Adobe executive vice president and general
manager of the digital experience business unit, in a message posted online.
“As a result, we have made the difficult but important decision to make Adobe
Summit 2020 an online event his year and cancel the live event in Las Vegas.”

Honestly, it doesn’t sound as informative or as fun as an
actual event in Las Vegas, but this may the future we’re in for if this coronavirus
epidemic isn’t managed soon.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, the Covid-19 outbreak is having a profound
impact on business and trade, especially as far as networking events go. As we
learn more about the state of industry events, we will continue to update this
list, so check back for more information.

48 hours away from starting, the 17th edition of Spannabis, one of the world’s largest cannabis trade shows, has been forced to postpone its 2020 event in Barcelona, Spain. “As you may know, this morning, the President of the Generalitat of Catalunya [have] announced extraordinary measures to respond to Covid-19 coronavirus disease,” Spannabis explain in […]

Will Coronavirus Kill The Cannabis Event Industry?

The coronavirus. If you’re following any sort of media outlet, you’ve definitely heard about it, and if you’re involved in any sort of international business, you’re probably wondering how this disease could affect you.

This is particularly true when it comes to networking events like large conventions. Thousands of people gather in a relatively confined area, they shake hands, touch products, exchange business cards, and the like. If anyone isn’t practicing proper hygiene, it’s easy to pick up a virus anytime you’re in a densely populated public area.

That said, what kind of impact will the coronavirus outbreak have on the blossoming cannabis event industry? Events are a cornerstone of the cannabis industry and a very important aspect of networking and business expansion. Although we shouldn’t expect this virus to kill the convention sector completely, it certainly seems poised to bring everything to a grinding halt until more is known about this disease.

Use the form below to subscribe to the CBD Business Weekly Newsletter.

What is Coronavirus?

Let me start by saying that even though coronavirus has existed for a very long time (the deadly SARS is a form of coronavirus), this 2019/2020 outbreak is a new strain of coronavirus. Since this strain has only been recently discovered, not very much is known about it. What we do know, is that coronavirus (2019-nCov) was first detected in Wuhan City, China.

It was initially kept under wraps by
the Chinese government, but after making headlines, over the last few weeks health
officials have reported tens of thousands of cases. So far, there are over 42,000 infected
with the total number of deaths at more than 1,000 – most of which are either
in Wuhan, or have recently traveled to the area. In total, 25 different countries
including the U.S. have reported cases, although outside of China, the numbers
remain very low and only 1 death has been reported (in Thailand).

Researchers only recently confirmed person-to-person spread of coronavirus, which they believe is airborne. This means that it would spread similarly to the way the flu spreads, when someone coughs or sneezes into the air and the respiratory droplets are inhaled by another person. As with most other respiratory viruses, patients with coronavirus are thought to be most contagious when they are the most symptomatic.

Reported symptoms in confirmed cases range from mild flu-like
symptoms to severe illness and possibly death. So far, the calculated death
rate for 2019-nCoV is roughly 2 percent, with most deaths occurring in elderly patients
and those weakened immune systems. The most common symptoms to look out for at
the moment are: fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The incubation period –
or time between exposure and first symptoms – ranges from 2 to 14 days.

One interesting discovery and possibly the only silver lining here is that this virus doesn’t seem to impact children the way it does adults. Very few child cases have been reported and of those that exist, their symptoms remained mild and manageable. The reason for this isn’t exactly clear, but it’s always a wonderful thing when diseases bypass the pediatric population. Not only can children be more susceptible to complications (generally speaking when it comes to pathogens), but they’re also not the cleanest among us, so viruses and bacteria can spread quickly among children.

Barcelona Tech Event Cancelled

The world’s largest phone convention in Barcelona, Spain was just cancelled due to growing fears over coronavirus. The Mobile World Congress, scheduled to take place between February 24th and 27th, will no longer be happening this year.

Top 11 Global Cannabis and Hemp Industry Events of 2020 (And Others To Look Out For)

According to GSM Association CEO John Hoffman, the coronavirus outbreak has made it “impossible” to hold the event. “With due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Barcelona and the host country today, the GSMA has cancelled MWC Barcelona 2020 because the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concern and other circumstances, make it impossible for the GSMA to hold the event.”

He continued: “The Host City Parties respect and
understand this decision. The GSMA and the Host City Parties will continue to
be working in unison and supporting each other for MWC Barcelona 2021 and
future editions. Our sympathies at this time are with those affected in China,
and all around the world.”

This move sets a precedent for what’s to come if this virus isn’t soon contained. Numerous cities around the world depend on the income earned from hosting conventions, which not only benefit the city itself but also the surrounding businesses like hotels, restaurants, and bars. Las Vegas is one such city that would suffer tremendously if the convention industry were to ever collapse, even temporarily.

Cannabis Event

By nature, there is a lot of close contact at conventions, especially cannabis industry ones. Products are being shared and sampled, people shake hands, exchange business cards; and this all takes place in an enclosed space. The thought of this might be off-putting to people while a viral epidemic like coronavirus is taking place, and it’s likely that recreational cannabis events will suffer more in this regard.

Not only that, but there will likely be an absence at the upcoming events with all the major production businesses, vape manufactures, and many medical companies from China not making an appearance. I will report more on that after the CBD Expo in Las Vegas this weekend.

Furthermore, all the attention being driven towards solving the coronavirus crisis may result in everything else going on the back-burner, including cannabis research and regulatory updates. Cannabis experts are concerned that the coronavirus outbreak in China could de-accelerate progress being made here in the U.S. for the vaping crisis, as well as for cannabis and CBD regulation.

According to POLITICO, new FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn is putting all of his agency’s resources into containing the spread of coronavirus in the U.S., as well as additional research, and it is unclear when the crisis will end and business will return to normal.  

Future Vaccine

Once Chinese scientists finally released the genetic sequence for 2019-nCoV, a group of researchers from Inovio quickly got to work trying to create a vaccine, and within only 3 hours, they were successful.

Inovio researchers have a vaccine for coronavirus in the works

“We have an algorithm which we designed, and we put the DNA sequence into our algorithm and came up with the vaccine in that short amount of time,” said Dr. Trevor Smith, director of research and development at Inovio.

So far, the vaccine has been tested on rats and guinea pigs and trials on a group of humans will begin very soon. The vaccine is expected to work like “a piece of biological software”, meaning it will guide the immune system to create T-cells and antibodies that will protect against this strain of coronavirus.

If all goes according to plan, the vaccine will be available to the public early this summer – which would be faster than most, if not all, of their previous vaccines.

Inovio Pharmaceuticals, which is located in Sorrento Valley, California, has also created a vaccine for the Zika virus, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and the vaccine for Ebola. According to Dr. Smith, “It’s something we are trained to do, and the infrastructure is here and the expertise is in house.”

Final Thoughts

Luckily for me, I’ve always been a bit of a germophobe so I’m well-prepared for any sort of pandemic; as far as hand washing and not touching my face goes. But in all seriousness, a virus this contagious and with so many unknowns has the potential to turn numerous industries on their heads. All we can do at the moment is hope that a solution is found quickly, before coronavirus causes any irreparable damage to cannabis industry stakeholders.
