WE HAVE CURATED A KILLER PANEL FOCUSED ON THE ISSUES OF 2018

Come meet and listen to the people with the information you need to know to face next years challenges. Last year we assembled the top experts on subjects like IPM, living soils and terpene science. Now we want to bring focus to the challenges facing the craft cannabis market, local regulation and dealing with the challenges of lab testing in the new world. We are proud to present this incredible collection of speakers!

FOR OUR FARMING COMMUNITY AND POTENTIAL ENTRANTS

MICROBIAL TESTING IS DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTING OUTDOOR ORGANIC FARMERS NEGATIVELY...SO HERE'S WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT IT

With more cannabis cultivation moving back outdoors, people are returning to more organic methodology and actually farming cannabis. The State of California supports mainstream farming’s use of biodynamic cultivation methodologies and we feel the same considerations should be given to cannabis and the subsequent microbial testing standards.

So we’ve decided…

We are not going to fail organic farmers because of the use of biodynamic cultivation methodology and the microbe levels it produces. Bring your cannabis that fails under current standards in. As long as there is no presence of HARMFUL microbes and bacteria AND you meet American Herbal Pharmacopeia Microbial Standards then you are good and will be able to compete.
