The Arkansas Times and the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association will host the Medical Marijuana and CBD Wellness Expo August 27th at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale.
The event will feature an exhibit hall with booths from many of the state’s dispensaries, CBD companies and doctors focused on the use of medical marijuana to treat a variety of symptoms. Businesses represented in the exhibit hall will have representatives on hand to talk about their products and answer questions.
The event will also feature discussion sessions with industry leaders from cultivation facilities, dispensaries, processors, regulatory agencies and more. Many discussions will examine the status and impact of the Arkansas Adult Use Cannabis Amendment, a recreational marijuana amendment that has been placed on the November ballot provisionally. The Supreme Court will decide in the coming months if the votes on the measure should be counted.
Tickets for the event are $10 and include lunch. They are available at centralarkansastickets.com.
