Cannabis Business to Maintain Convention at Arrowhead Mall – Muskogee Daily Phoenix
Cannabis industry leaders and vendors will be on hand in Arrowhead Mall this weekend for a Cannabis Oklahoma Regional Expo (CORE) conference.
The event will include speakers and sellers at the cannabis industry, focusing on regulatory and legal issues, insurance, the business of the business, and manufacturing of hemp goods.
“This event is truly likely to be the launching of a brand new trade association for people from the cannabis industry called the Cannabis Industry Association of Oklahoma, or even CIAO,” said Rob Raasch, president of this company.
Randy Gibson, whose communications company symbolizes CIAO, said the two-day event is an opportunity for industry leaders and representatives to go over the many aspects of the industry.
“The marijuana business is really getting large in Oklahoma — both that the cannabis and hemp industry,” he said. “This group is the one that represents a lot of the business part such as the growers, the labs, the transporters and the dispensaries. They’re likely to be speaking a lot about the different laws.
“Representative Chris Sneed has been scheduled to talk, Together with representatives from the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Association.”
Gibson also said it’s an opportunity for attendees to”get talk from the owners.”
“And if there aren’t any patients that have something to say or what they’re kind of thinking about a number of the laws being contemplated.”
Furthermore, there’ll be a specific session to the hemp supply chain and workforce improvement program, for example, collaboration between Native American tribes, tribal schools and the national land grant program.
“There is going to be a great deal of excellent information for those wanting to learn who are contemplating getting to the cannabis and hemp-related businesses,” Raasch said. “We invite anyone who would like to learn more or who have questions to come visit with our vendors, our minds as well as our elected officials.”
Gibson said there are also discussion on development and research in the industry.
“People speaking about a number of the things you’ll be able to create from bark,” he said. “What we’re seeing is that’s where the industry is actually taking away, where people are using the hemp component of the plant. They’re producing consumable products such as plastic cup and cutlery you see at restaurants and even hempcrete, it is like concrete.”
The event has been sponsored by CIAO, Native Health Topics, Native Grass Dispensary and the Muskogee Tourism Authority.
