As we enter this new week, please take care of yourselves and others by practicing social distancing. Listen to local, regional and federal authorities.
Last week, we announced that all Business of Cannabis events planned for the coming months will be held digitally. Our Cannabis + Technology | Retail Tech presented by LeafLink event will now take place online between April 13 and 17 while our Medical Cannabis Week events will take place online between May 4 and 8. Stay tuned for more details on both. If you are interested in taking part in this virtual event, please contact us.
Looking ahead, we are proud to share that we will also be ramping up our already rich online content. Be sure to join us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
Finally, starting Friday, we will be hosting a virtual Friday Lunch+Learn on Fridays for the next several months. Our first guest on Mar. 20 will be David Brown – formerly of Health Canada. Sign up to join us.
AND, there was cannabis news this week, like Tweed beverages hitting the shelves, Zenabis facilities hitting the market and new leadership at the top of (at least) one cannabis company.
Some cannabis news this week…

Zenabis is in tough shape, selling some major assets – and cutting 25 percent of the workforce.
NFL players are going to be ok with THC in the new collective bargaining agreement.
Finally, we look forward to the time when cannabis news is flooding the news cycles.
