Toronto #liftexpo

Many Canadians are waiting for the day when Marijuana becomes legal in June of 2018, until then the medical use of cannabis and the hope of a regulated market for personal use is gearing up the industry. This is largest cannabis trade show in Canada, only the second time for Toronto, and is on from May 26-28 with the business conference and industry day on Friday. PS the flyte crews were amazing, especially with their in flyte beverage carts.

Lift Expo wants to empower people to make informed decisions about the infamous herb. Friday is industry day then the weekend is open for general admission in the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Visitors seemed to be pretty mellow and the bartenders seem a tad under utilized. There were a lot of free rolling papers and lighters at many of the booths but if I had to guess most of the new growth will be in vaporizers as opposed to smoking the future legal product. Although I notice that TVAPE states in the Lift Expo guidebook that vaporizer ads will soon be outlawed.
You can come down for presentations, panel discussions and demonstrations of cooking, extraction and cultivation, or just look at the bongs and vapes. There are over 200 booths and 60 speakers taking part and everyone seems excited about the opening market. Dragon Brett Wilson had a session during the business conference on 'Success and the lost art of critical thinking' discussing a work/life balance and succeeding in life and business.
'How will a you access your cannibis in 2018?' Good question - the panel, above, featuring Elliot Guither, Omar Khan and Ivan Ross Vrana said that it wouldn't be at your local LCBO. The talks on the lift beleave main stage were very well attended and informative. On noon Sunday you can listen to Brent Reynolds and Tony Verzura talk about Cancer and Cannabis - the myths and the potential.

See more after the jump.
