Highlights from the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo

The 2015 Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) offered what was an enthusiastic and encouraging glimpse into the booming cannabis industry during its three-day takeover of the Los Angeles Convention Center earlier this month. Healthcare professionals, investors, dispensary owners, lawyers, producers and enthusiasts were presented with the industry’s latest information, medical findings, products, resources and tools.

The CWCBExpo, which ran from September 16-18 and was sponsored by the International Cannabis Association (ICA), featured an education program with in-depth workshops covering cannabis careers, cannabis business certifications, an investor boot camp and pre-certifications for doctors and nurse practitioners. The raucous exhibit floor was filled with both new suppliers showcasing cutting-edge products and industry old timers like NORML and the Marijuana Policy Project. Industry leaders and keynote speakers, including Grammy and Academy Award winner Melissa Etheridge and entrepreneur George Zimmer, offered insight on what’s next for the industry.

Taking to the podium at one point was our own Dr. Stuart Titus, Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s President and CEO, who presented on “Industrial Hemp and Botanical CBD: The Many Benefits for Mankind.” A medical marijuana patient himself, Dr. Titus covered the latest medical discoveries related to hemp and cannabidiol, including how cannabinoids found in cannabis interact with the endocannabinoid system of the body and offer safe, therapeutic medicinal benefits.

“There is some great research going on in the field of CBD and various cannabinoids and I am very happy to say that our company was really one of the first to bring a natural, botanical CBD product to the market,” Dr. Titus explained during his presentation. “And the explosion, the interest, from other companies, from individuals, from pharmaceutical companies, has been absolutely overwhelming the last few years.”

“Cannabis as a primary care option is gaining popularity among professionals in the mainstream medical community today,” he added.

After his presentation, Dr. Titus stuck around to further share information on CBD’s progress as a legitimate health treatment option with members of the media, including popular publications like the Huffington Post, MG Magazine, Voice America and Univision.
