It is finally that time of year again and the preeminent scientific conference in the cannabis industry starts today. The Emerald Science Conference will be showcasing some of the most innovative work the cannabis science field has to offer. This conference is where the cannabis scientific community comes together to collaborate on leading issues, progressive research, and future opportunities in science and technology.
The 6th Annual Emerald Science Conference will hosted by the Loews Coronado Hotel in San Diego, California from February 26th-29th with early registration starting on the 26th. Orion GMP Solutions will be the keynote speaker of the Emerald Science Quality Summit on the 29th, which will be wrapping up the conference. The conference this year will host a variety of speakers ranging from advanced scientific topics to trending issues that effect a large portion of the cannabis industry in general. The complete agenda can be found here with the complete list of exhibitors here.
Advanced topics cover the entire cannabis spectrum ranging from molecular production mechanisms to stability of cannabis for medicinal programs. There is a particular focus on terpenoid and cannabinoid production. This is most likely due to the industry demand for the most potent flower an operator can produce bringing in the largest returns to balance the massive debts being taken on. Talks this year look at screening of chemovars for particular cultivation parameters and the models of terpene and cannabinoid production limits just to name a few. It is very exciting to see all of the new areas of research and innovation coming from the fastest growing industry in the market. With all of the new interests popping up it is easy to lose track of the issues facing licensed operators on a daily basis, Emerald Science has done a great job incorporating talks covering relevant problems in cannabis.
The hottest topics on the agenda have to be the vaping crisis that has crippled the tobacco and cannabis markets or the latest findings that beverage liners absorb cannabinoids. Other speakers will present on bacteria growth and detection in cultivation spaces, importance of sampling plans and procedures (which are so desperately needed after the FDA debacle), and edibles potency and pesticides in California to name a few. With over 20 speakers packed into 2 days the conference is sure to offer something for everyone. If nothing else come check out how carbon dioxide from breweries are being used to increase the yields of cannabis in Colorado to attempts to offset the carbon footprint of craft brewing.
The conference will wrap up with a featured session, the Emerald Science Quality Summit, focusing on cannabis quality and issues that need to be addressed to enhance patient safety across the industry. Orion GMP Solutions founder and CEO Andrew Samann will be delivering the keynote speech. Dr. John Abrams, Cannabis Scientist top 20 influencers in cannabis analysis, will lead the conference as well as the summit as Emerald’s Scientific Director. In addition to Mr. Samann, major industry leaders such as Dr. Susan Audino of Audino and Associates and Kellan Finney of Eighth Revolution will be weighing in on how to improve quality in cannabis.
