Cannabis Science for the Win – Emerald Conference Recap  

March 18, 2022

While the majority of cannabis events are centered on products, trends, and other recreational aspects, The Emerald Conference is focused on what is arguably the most important component of this nascent industry: science and research. Among the multitude of professionals who shared their theories and experiences, there were strong feelings of vindication in the knowledge that what we’re all doing here is not for naught.  

Events like The Emerald Conference are pivotal to the advancement of any industry involving plant-based consumer products, but this is especially true in an alternative niche like cannabis. Giving the scientific community a platform where they can openly discuss their findings and insights is the only way to dismantle the misinformation and “black-market paranoia” that runs rampant the world of marijuana, and has been the basis for harsh prohibition laws in the US for nearly 100 years.

Cannabis is one of those industries where it seems like there is always something new and exciting to learn about. We cover everything important in this niche; so subscribe to the THC Weekly Newsletter to keep up with everything going on right now. It’ll also get you premium access to stellar deals on cannabis products like vapes, edibles, and other paraphernalia! Plus, we’ve also got some sweet offers on cannabinoids, like HHC-O, Delta 8Delta 9 THCDelta-10 THCTHCOTHCVTHCP HHC, which won’t break the bank. Check out our “Best-of” lists to access these deals, and always remember to enjoy responsibly!

About the event (and details for next year) 

This event that just passed was large enough to offer some diversity and wonderful networking opportunities, but not so massive that you felt overwhelmed or like you were missing out on anything. It took place in the beautiful, beachy city of San Diego, California, at Loews Coronado Bay Resort during the very beginning of March. Honestly, the weather couldn’t have been any more perfect, it was sunny and mild, and very welcoming.  

Unlike other events, which are often structured under the standard exhibitor/booth layout where attendees walk the convention floor and talk to all the various exhibitors to learn more about their products and services – the Emerald Conference is all about the sessions (with a small exhibitor hall on the premises). Essentially, it’s like going back to school for a weekend college course to learn about all the latest advancements in cannabis and psychedelic sciences.  

Speaking of psychedelics, the most recent event did have a couple of sessions that touched on this class of substances, primarily psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms. It was exciting to know that these compounds are on researchers’ radars, and I expect there will be much more on these emerging fields in years to come.  

On that note, the Emerald Conference is already planning for next year’s event, which will be going on March 1-3, 2023, at the same location. Shoot us a quick message or drop a line in the comment section below if you need help booking tickets and making travel arrangements.  


As far as industry events go, this one is no-frills but one of my favorites. If it wasn’t for the known safety-profile and therapeutic benefits of cannabis, those backed by years of rigorous research, the possibility of legalization would likely not even be entertained by most government officials. However, thanks to the dedicated work of scientists in the industry, cannabis legalization is currently one of the hottest political topics of our time. Events like this really put everything into perspective and serve as a reminder that despite all the seemingly crazy things happening in the retail sector, cannabis is and always will be a healing plant that should be studied, respected, and utilized to its full potential.

Closing thoughts from David Dawson, Ph.D. Senior Scientist Via Innovations: “The Emerald Conference’s high standards for peer-reviewed work and desire for open collaboration amongst participants sets it apart from the vast majority of cannabis conferences.”  I couldn’t agree more, and hope to see some of you there next year!

Owning Guns is a Constitutional Right, Unless You’re a Cannabis User

September 28, 2022

Take two of the most hot-button, tendentious issues of our time – cannabis use and gun rights – combine them, and now we really have a debate.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

University of Sydney to Offer Free Cannabis Testing by Johnny Green

The University of Sydney is launching a fairly robust study in an attempt to, as the university describes it, “investigate cannabis consumption, behaviours, and attitudes among users.” Part of the study involves offering free, anonymous cannabis testing for people that cultivate their own cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
