Two months is a lot of time, why is it so long?

Whole Plant Expo aim to provide attendees with a comprehensive view of medical cannabis and hemp. For our industry professional attendees, that means looking at a particular topic and having the opportunity to learn about it from a medical, chemical, business and industry perspective. To see everything will require a lot of time in front of a screen. We want attendees to have the opportunity to see content they feel is important, and the extended time frame makes it easier and more convenient.

What content does my ticket let me see?

If you purchased a Patient & Caregiver ticket, you will get to see a conference track carefully curated to educate those exploring the use of cannabis for health and wellness for the first time, as well as more expert patients or caregivers wanting to learn more. Your ticket also gives you entry to the consumer products exhibit zone, the Nonprofits Pavilion, and select content of interest to patients and their caregivers appearing on a special conference track produced by the American Journal of Cannabinoid Medicine (AJEM).

The Industry Professional ticket is an all-access pass that also grants entry to the Medical Professionals, Researchers, Business, and Industry Professionals conferences tracks, the entire AJEM track, and all exhibit hall zones. It also grants you entry to industry networking events.
