The USA CBD Expo is set to take place Feb. 13-15 in Las Vegas. The expo, which is open to both industry insiders and the general public, is expected to bring in about 14,000 attendees and more than 300 vendors to showcase thousands of cannabidiol (CBD) products, according to show organizers.
Pet-specific seminars include “Vital Parameters of the Current Pet Cannabis Industry” by Zachary Pilossoph, DVM, associate medical director of World Canna Health, a global education and information platform, and chief medical officer of Cansultants, a Florida-based cannabis cultivation and genomic innovation project; and “The Right Way to Choose and Use CBD Oil for Your Pets” by Angela Ardolino, founder and CEO of CBD Dog Health.
This is USA CBD Expo’s second show, following a “successful” inaugural event in Miami last year, organizers said.
“After seeing the excitement and success behind our Miami event—where we hosted more than 13,000 attendees—we feel energized, ready to deliver and exceed expectations for Las Vegas,” said Jason Monti, USA CBD Expo partner. “Nevada is at the epicenter of the booming legal cannabis market, and CBD has an enormous role in that. The opportunities are endless for both consumers and business owners, and we’re excited about creating a platform that allows so many components of our industry to come together.”
PureKana, the presenting sponsor, will partner with Montkush, which is producing an upcoming unscripted television show about the hemp industry. Filming will take place for the duration of the event, with the “goal of capturing the key components of the burgeoning CBD and hemp industry from seed to sale,” organizers said.
Verge CBD, which recently partnered with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” will be onsite with Magro promoting its suite of products. CaniBrands will also be in attendance with brand ambassador and Olympic medalist Dara Torres to celebrate the brand’s launch into Planet 13 in Las Vegas, the world’s largest cannabis dispensary at 112,000 square feet, organizers noted.
Other speakers include Joy Beckerman from the Hemp Industries Association, Julian Garcia of the Cannabis Law Society, Antonio Frazier, vice president of operations at CannaSafe, and Anthony Sullivan, CEO of Montkush.
