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!

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.

A Recap of The CBD Expo in Las Vegas

CBD and hemp industry professionals headed to Vegas Valentine’s
day weekend yet again for another premier marketing event, The CBD Expo.

Although much smaller than MJBizCon or similar industry events, the CBD Expo – which took place from February 13th to 15th in none other than Sin City, was bustling and full of energy as people mingled and learned more about each other’s businesses. Worries about the coronavirus that has shuttered other large events around the world seemed non-existent here.

A lot of the big names like Medterra and Ignite were there. Mostly domestic brands. There were little, if any, foreign companies, no big vape producers, and no large extraction companies.

For me, it was a great time to see what kind of products are
trending right now, and which ones have withstood the test of time. Basically
these days, if CBD can be infused into something, it will be. The hemp industry
as a whole (flowers, extracts, infused products, etc.) is growing to levels
unimagined just a decade ago. It’s expected that by 2025, the industry will be
worth nearly $27 billion dollars.

What is CBD?

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is the most abundant, non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. It’s legal, although whether it’s derived from hemp or cannabis remains problematic. 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, 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.

A CBD Mattress?

At the expo, you could find everything from classic CBD oil, to beverages and topicals, and even a CBD-infused mattress! In case you’re curious (because I definitely was), the way this works is that the mattress is coated with microcapsules that contain CBD isolate. The microcapsules burse when you get into the bed, which spreads the CBD throughout the bed fabric and is then absorbed into the skin.

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

I have to say, I’m not entirely sure about the longevity of
this particular item, but it does bring up some interesting questions about
where the market is heading, what kind of products can successfully be infused
with CBD, and what it can realistically be used to treat.

Back to the Basics

One of the most common products that I saw there was, of
course, CBD oil. There’s nothing better than the basics sometimes, and you
really can do so much with high-quality CBD oil. It can be a base ingredient
for a variety of homemade products since it can be added to virtually anything.
People use CBD oil to find relief from various ailments including anxiety,
pain, sleep issues, and so much more.

It seems evident though, that consumers are becoming increasingly
aware of what’s going into their bodies. Most of the booths made sure to
emphasize if their product was sourced from organic hemp, free from additives, environmentally
sustainable, etc. Today’s “cannabis” user is much more sophisticated than those
of generations past, and they’re looking for isolated cannabinoids, terpenes, and
products that have health roots, so to speak.

Topicals, Beverages, and More

Another growing trend in the CBD industry is topicals. Although it’s been hinted at for a while that CBD can be great for sensitive skin, I think the full-effects are only now being realized. I, for one, have been using CBD skincare products for a couple of years now and would never go back to anything else.

Also popular: coffee and tea. Not that these two beverages
aren’t extremely popular on their own, but they’re becoming household items in
the word of CBD-infused products as well. When used in the correct doses, CBD
can either help boost energy or act as a sleep aid – higher doses promote sleep
while lower doses promote energy. So mixing it with tea or coffee makes a lot
of sense depending on what time of day it is. Personally, I love coffee. I also
love green tea. So both of these products are on my short list.

Getting to the basics once more, there were also a handful
of hemp flower companies. Not as many as I expected honestly but quite a few none
the less. All had very high quality flowers, both CBD and CBG (cannabigerol)
strains were on display to be looked at, smelled, and purchased at a discounted
price.

Summing it all Up

Overall, the CBD Expo was close-knit but informative. Seeing all the booths really helps to solidify in my mind how mainstream CBD has become. There was even a USPS (United States Postal Service) booth, offering a variety shipping services for the industry. If that doesn’t say conventional, I don’t know what does.

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!
