Puerto Rico’s Medical Cannabis Industry Annual Event

Puerto Rico MedCann.Biz is an interdisciplinary forum that gathers members, stakeholders, key policy players and patients of the medical cannabis industry. On this occasion, the event will focus on the progress achieved with the first generation of medical cannabis patients in Puerto Rico and what lies ahead for the expansion of the industry.

Conference participants will also gain valuable knowledge in the research and scientific progress surrounding medical cannabis worldwide. The conference will address industry trends and provide up to date information related to regulatory framework, technology, agricultural and manufacturing practices, dispensaries and dosage processes, among others.

The 2018 Puerto Rico MedCann.Biz is targeted to industry members, medical professionals and scholars, patients and citizens committed to the success of the medical cannabis treatment.

 

 

Scope

It will also provide a platform of medical education for healthcare professionals and match Puerto Rico’s capabilities as a research and investment destination with medical cannabis initiatives and entrepreneurs.

By gathering local and international business leaders with medical professionals and other key members of the cannabis industry, the event will provide participants both knowledge and networking opportunities that will help them connect with the industry’s most relevant issues today.

Testimonials 

 

"The Medcannbiz conference was non-stop information sharing and a perfect opportunity to network.  The speakers were experienced serious professionals offering practical advise."

Terrance W. Gainer
Chief Security Officer, GTI-Maryland

"As the longest surviving of the final two Federal Medical Cannabis patients in the United States, I have helped pioneer this nation’s Medical Marijuana movement. Since 1982, when I started being supplied 10 Cannabis cigarettes per day I have tried to educate everyone about the benefits of the medicine. I have spoken at dozens of educational seminars and the first seminar by the Puerto Rico Medcann Biz was one of the finest and well run seminars that I ever had the pleasure to attend and speak. 
The educational information was extensive and well designed. It was well worth the time and money. A great way to learn how to get into the business  and learn the ins and outs. Also check out my book “My Medicine” which is a great educational tool which is available on Kindle and at www.mymedicinethebook.com"
