The Spring CannaGrow Expo took place May 7 – 8 in Mission Bay, San Diego. The two-day event was held at Paradise Point, a 44-acre island retreat, the perfect venue to host a weekend full of cannabis education and conversation. Speakers touched on topics from large scale automation to extraction and light deprivation techniques while vendors and entrepreneurs lined the banquet hall in booths to showcase their products and services.
The expo featured approximately ten speakers each day across five different time slots (meaning you had to pick and choose which session to attend). I was quite pleased with the breadth of topics and found that the sessions ranged from novice to fairly technical, making it easy to find value despite one’s resume (or lack thereof). Most importantly, the resort venue provided an environment conducive to meeting others in the industry and/or tracking down a speaker for a question. A poolside party on Saturday evening also provided a great opportunity to mingle and share a smoke with fellow enthusiasts.
Highlighting a few of the sessions that I attended, Jennifer Martin’s decades of research and experience have provided her with remarkable insight on optimizing plant growth and her session on Plant Health Management for Optimal Quality was particularly insightful. She was able to cram a remarkable amount of practical information in her limited time slot.
