As legal, adult-use cannabis markets become established and begin to mature, there is a departure from traditional cannabis consumption patterns such as smoking. Health concerns, social stigma and shifting consumer preference are driving a surge in demand for the production of differentiated cannabis consumables. Extraction technology – and how extracts are formulated – play a key role in the development of products that appeal to the next generation of cannabis consumer. There is an ever-increasing array of options within extraction technology, but do all stakeholders share cohesive goals? From producers, to manufacturers, formulators, and consumers, cannabis is a rapidly changing and, at times, confusing market sector. Supercritical carbon dioxide or ethanol extraction? Whole plant extracts or distillate oil? Let us help you make sense of it all. This panel will delve into the complexities of extraction technology, the risk and rewards of setting up an extraction facility, and the challenges of formulating extracted cannabis into edible products or beverages with market appeal and scalability. The panelists have a range of expertise including growing cannabis, the manufacturing of extraction equipment, commissioning and set up of extraction facilities, and the formulation, development and marketing of consumer products. Join us for a lively discussion on the art and economics of cannabis extraction. Moderated By: Ivan Casselman
