There is one month until cannabis is legalized in Canada. Judging by the activity that took place at the second annual Grow Up Conference and Expo from September 7-8, 2018, one can be excused from thinking that this has already happened. Hundreds of vendors were set up in the expo hall. Thousands of attendees have made their way to Niagara falls. It is apparent that an entire industry is gearing up. Nucro-Technics is no exception. This is why we’ve been attending shows like the Grow Up Conference so that we can take the pulse of the industry and see where things are going.
Given how quickly everything is moving with draft legislation being released at the federal level, and with things at the provincial level being a bit less certain at this point in time, many companies are still gearing up and trying to find out what direction everybody is moving in. Given how other similar industries have evolved, there is a lot of confidence that in the long term we will end up with a few very large players that will dominate the industry, and with smaller organizations that will fill in the niches. With that being said, things will look different in the short term. Lots of companies will be trying to carve out a piece of the market for themselves. Much volatility is expected.
With that being said, all of the marijuana licensed producers, makers of cannabis-infused food and beverages, and organizations using THC and its derivatives for some sort of therapeutic purpose that were present at the Grow Up Conference will have one thing in common – all of their products will need to be tested for potency, pesticides, bacteria and mold.
