Canna Pharma

Advancing the Science of Medicinal Cannabis Through GMP, Regulatory Compliance, and Emerging Therapeutic Applications

November 9-10, 2021, San Diego CA

The Cannabis market is exploding. Yet the state of scientific knowledge on medicinal Cannabis remains immature, and the regulatory environment in North America fragmented and contested. That is why you cannot afford to miss Pharma Ed's Canna Pharma. This two-day scientific conference will explicitly link current knowledge and practice in the pharmaceutical and Cannabis industries, providing a forum for scientific dialogue and collaboration aimed at advancing best practices in this growing market. Research scientists, analytical experts, drug developers, drug device manufactures, validation experts, cannabis cultivators and processors, Cannabis labs, and public policy makers will come together to advance Cannabis science.

Why Attend:

  • Two full days of presentations, panel discussions, and networking
  • 20 industry experts will share their knowledge and lessons learned
  • Full coverage of best practices in Cannabis product development, cultivation, & regulatory compliance
  • Key insights from industry working groups-USP, ASTM, and AOAC
  • From lab-bench to clinical trials: unlocking the therapeutic potential of Cannabis-derived Compounds
