TORONTO, April 17, 2018

/CNW/ - With more than 260,000 Canadians having legal, medical access to cannabis, Medical Cannabis Week is a dedicated opportunity to engage in conversation about an alternative medicine touching a growing number of Canadians. Founded by Business of
Cannabis and observed by a series of founding partners, Medical Cannabis Week will expand the dialogue and examine the potential for medical cannabis to deliver significant and positive patient benefits.

Canada's inaugural Medical Cannabis Week will be held May 22-24, 2018 in downtown Toronto and will include:

  • The State of Patients featuring data from SheCann and Strainprint
  • A 360º roundtable discussion on medical cannabis policy | Convened by Blakes

The week is being presented by Business of Cannabis in partnership with Cannvas MedTech, WeedMD, Ample Organics, TechTO and HealthTO, SheCann, Blakes, Cassels & Graydon LLP, RNMKR PR and other leading industry partners.
