Canna Pharma 2021

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

November 9-10, 2021, San Diego CA (or Virtual)

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.

  • 20 industry experts will share their knowledge and lessons learned
  • Full coverage of best practices in Cannabis product development, cultivation, & regulatory compliance

About This Year's Canna Pharma Conference: Health & Safety Firstt

Driven by breakthroughs in vaccine development and emerging new therapies, the country is inching closer to a new normal. While the situation remains fluid and there is still much work to be done, we are optimistic that we will be able to meet in-person safely later this year.

We are planning Canna Pharma 2021 to be an in-person/hybrid event, enabled by the increased availability of vaccination, the expected decrease in COVID transmissibility, and our ongoing implementation of public health and safety measures. The health and safety of our attendees, sponsors and speakers remains our top priority, and we will endeavor to locate a venue that can ensure the well-being of all. Canna Pharma 2021 will also be live-streamed--the hybrid part--so that anyone who may wish to participate virtually will have the option to do so.
