Growing Your 'Cannabusiness':
From Seeds to the Stock Exchange

Date: Wednesday, September 27, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. ET

The federal government’s plan to legalize recreational marijuana in Canada will ignite the booming legal cannabis industry. Currently based solely on medicinal use, legalizing recreational cannabis will create new opportunities for business owners, investors and shareholders. However, a strict legal framework will make this industry a regulatory maze. Those looking to capitalize on the legalization of marijuana must be fully prepared.

The nature of the product and immaturity of the market will influence financing and listing decisions, patentability and IP protection, licensing requirements and much more. 

Join our panel of leading legal experts for an informative discussion on how to take your ‘cannabusiness’ from seeds to the stock exchange. Topics to include:

  • Stock option plans
  • Directors’ liability
  • Financing the business
  • Creating the legal infrastructure for growth
  • Patentability of seeds, plants, dosage forms, drug products, and delivery methods
  • Where patent protection can/should be pursued and general discussion of costs
