Canada’s largest cannabis conference is coming to the University of British Columbia’s Chan Centre and Nest roughly two weeks ahead of legalization.

The 4th annual Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo (CHCE) features scientific presentations by over 40 national and international cannabis experts plus panel discussions on cannabis cultivation, cannabis use in medical treatment, legalization and the emerging market and environmental sustainability.

The event features a one-day expo with 35 exhibitors offering samples showcasing their cannabis products and six live workshops. The workshops cover topics such as cooking with cannabis, cannabis for arthritis and skin care, CBD for pets and organic growing.

“Life is precious. In today’s fast-paced and technologically overwhelming world, people have lost connection with their bodies, emotions and spirit,” says CHCE founder Salimeh Tabrizi in a news release. “Thankfully, plant medicines such as cannabis and ayahuasca help us to reconnect with our health and intuition.”

Attendees will be able to participate in a cannabis ceremony to “connect with their deeper inner calling guided by plant wisdom” for the first time ever at a Canadian conference.

CHCE is presented by Agrima Botanicals, produced by Amazon Coalition and runs from September 28 to 30.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that cannabis will become legal in Canada on October 17, 2018.

Early bird tickets to attend CHCE are $229 before August 20.
