Leaf Forward acquired by Business of Cannabis

2 mins read


When we launched the Business of Cannabis in 2017, we set out to highlight the companies, brands, people and trends driving the global cannabis industry. Since then, we have produced compelling content, conducted insightful research and hosted impactful events.

Today, to offer further value to our audience and our partners, we are pleased to announce that we have acquired Leaf Forward’s national, industry-leading networking and education series. This acquisition will allow us to expand our ability to build a stronger, more mature and nationally-integrated cannabis industry.

Leaf Forward events will be rebranded as Cannabis Forward and will continue to offer unique networking and learning events throughout the country. Cannabis Forward is a national series of meetups for cannabis professionals seeking to expand their professional knowledge and network.

Each event will tackle a timely topic, serving up vibrant conversation and valuable networking. The informal setting attracts attendees from all parts of the sector including investors, entrepreneurs and those actively engaged in cannabis business.

Our meetings are held in cities across North America. For a full list of upcoming events, including February 2020 events in Waterloo, Montreal and Toronto – we encourage you to visit: Cannabis Forward.

And finally, we are grateful for the strong work of Leaf Forward’s founding team – Alex Blumenstein, Brett Chang and Taylor Scollon – who will continue to invest and advise in the cannabis industry and beyond under the Leaf Forward brand. We are excited to grow from the rock-solid foundation they built.
