EDIBLES, INFUSED FOODS & BEVERAGES: HURDLES AND REWARDS AHEAD

While 93% of cannabis users want to try infused products, and the government is tentatively saying “next year,” some in the cannabis sector doubt the green light will ever be extended because of uncontrolled effects. But firms like Colorado infused-product maker Dixie Brands Inc. are going so far as to buy a company on the CSE to secure an investment spot. Others are going ahead regardless with expensive extraction R&D. If the federal government digs its heels, is it encouraging black market sales since demand is there already? And will the $200 billion food and $42 billion alcohol lobbies interfere? In this panel, interested and expert parties in the infused-marijuana sector talk about the bumpy road and potential profit from legal edibles and potables in Canada. Moderated By: Peter Guo
