The Highest Level Networking Event in the Cannabinoid Industry
We are the creators of the ORIGINAL CBD Expo Tour, and it's personal. 

Powered by Delta 8 Magazine and CBD Health & Wellness Magazine, our driving force is education and we’ve been doing it for twelve years, when the CEO of MACE Media Group, Celeste Miranda, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Our education panels are unmatched, connecting physicians, scientists, industry experts, researchers, and thought leaders. Coming up will be our 28th stop on the CBD Expo TOUR where we bring the magazines alive in our conferences, connecting store owners and other professionals with the trending products they are looking for. Our exclusive Industry Buyers Club is highly vetted and personal invitations are sent to attend our events. These are the people you want your product to be in front of.

Our conferences are boutique and rooted in quality. Our goal isn’t for you to scan as many badges as you can. Our goal is for you to make that life-changing deal or connection. We tune our event to high-caliber exhibitors that “get it” and provide them with data and continued promotion AFTER the event. We are partners for our exhibitors and providers for our attendees. Sales are done on our floor. Samples are given freely.

Call us or text us 24/7. We can answer all your questions... 805-716-5121

Panel Room: Same Yet Different: The Extraction of Mushrooms and Cannabinoids 
Mushrooms and cannabis are the headline grabbers.  They are distinctly different and have the same barriers to moving forward in a consistent scientific process.  Mushrooms are consumed around the world.  Flavors and fragrances help with meals.  They hold many compounds with great value once extracted, also.  Cannabis is not a typical dinner garnish or ingredient.  Both of the plants need to be extracted to gain the concentrated form to put into a medicine.  The use of cell blasting technology has proven successful.  From water and ethanol history to looking at how to do this on a small scale, pilot, to industrial-scale will be discussed.

Panel Room: CBD Advertising: What Claims to Avoid While Promoting Your Products
The margins for lawful CBD advertising are extremely narrow. CBD products can’t make health claims, yet they’re made predominantly for health reasons. It’s like chocolate milk not being able to make taste claims. Ideally, CBD companies should only be worried about making quality products rather than tightroping across an advertising minefield of technicalities. But the status quo of the CBD industry is far from ideal. Nevertheless, CBD businesses can adapt and learn to navigate it successfully.

Panel Room: Neuroscience: Cannabinoids and Brain Health
Cannabinoids and brain health is a subject of great controversy, though it should not be. Cannabidiol’s (CBD) role in relieving intractable seizures managed to grab reputable headlines in 2018. Recent studies have also highlighted the potential of cannabinoids in slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Research on the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids is ongoing and promising.

Panel Room:  CBD and the Process of Converting it to D8, HHC, THC-O, and More 
Many different cannabinoids can be produced in laboratories performing chemical reactions with CBD as starting material. By semi-synthetically modifying the major constituent of hemp plants, it is possible to produce valuable health-promoting compounds that are present in nature only in small amounts and which can be extracted from hemp with very low yields and large solvents waste.  Depending on the needs, CBD can be converted into other cannabinoids such as D8, HHC, THC-O among others. Through semi-synthetic reactions involving heat, acids, catalysts and various reagents we are capable of improving the overall process of cannabinoids production and reduce the environmental impact of minor cannabinoid extraction.

Panel Room: Is the End Near? The 2014 Hemp Pilot Plan and What’s to Come
The 2014 Farm Bill and 2018 Farm Bill extension empowered the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to work with states and Indian Tribes to issue licenses to grow hemp for commercial and research purposes. However, many states did not opt into the 2018 extension, and the provisions and extensions for the 2014 Farm Bill expired in Sept of 2021. This left many growers and sellers unsure of their legal status throughout most of the US. What does this mean for growers and sellers? What regulations govern the 2022 growing season? Is growing hemp still legal? How do you know if you live and grow in a state that created its own USDA-approved plan or deferred to the USDA governance? Is growing and selling hemp still legal?
