Learn, Network and Discover at the “Must-Attend” Event for Extraction and Infused Products Manufacturing. With the market for edibles, vape cartridges, wax, shatter, beverages, tinctures, capsules, patches and topicals nearing 50% of dispensary and adult-use sales, the infused products sector is exploding. Yet it’s among the least understood and most complex segments of the cannabis industry. To succeed requires expertise in science, manufacturing and business practices. Until now, acquiring knowledge in all these areas and keeping current on the latest technologies, techniques, regulations and best practices required reviewing multiple periodicals, attending dozens of conferences and trade shows, and reading a myriad of reports. But that’s no longer the case… Now there’s an educational conference dedicated to the infused products sector.

The Infused Products Conference – March 21st and 22nd in Los Angeles, California. Do you run an extraction operation, manufacture edibles, produce vape cartridges, make wax or shatter, or manufacture other infused products?

Or are you looking to acquire a license and start an infused products company?

Conscious Cannabis Circle by Medicinal Mindfulness Events

Sunday March 24, 2019 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM PDT

Beautiful Private Yoga Studio
Address Provided to Participants
Burbank, CA 91505


We are excited to return to LA! Join Daniel McQueen and the Medicinal Mindfulness Community for this special event exploring the psychedelic potential of Cannabis sativa.

Since the legalization of cannabis in Colorado in 2014, Medicinal Mindfulness has been leading group psychedelic experiences that are safe, legal and deeply transformative. Participants experience firsthand the true psychedelic nature of this humble plant ally. Most participants describe them as very similar to MDMA/Psilocybin or even like 2-3 hour Ayahuasca journeys. Just because cannabis journeys are shorter than other psychedelics, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re less intense. The primary difference is a greater sense of agency and safety, with all of the benefits of other psychedelic medicine experiences.

Cristina Espiritu, Founder of 420 Foodie Club and Co-Founder of HerCannabiz




    • You are totally right Richard. It is interesting that people just keep going to the doctor and the doctor will just keep finding something wrong over and over again. The pharmaceuticals out there have so many side effects, especially liver problems like you mentioned. I think they just put some of the elderly through the ringer to just keep them going and going to different meds as they slowly die. The older people I know that are in great shape don’t go to the doctor non stop.

      Another thing related is drinking vs. smoking weed. Elderly people that have been drinking forever are falling apart, yet the ones that mainly smoke weed seem fine at least out of the ones I know. Drinking is killing people yet weed is illegal. Even if not for medical purposes but just to chill, weed is better, while alcohol long term will kill you. On top of that, drinking crap alcohol is even extra worse as its less filtered.

What do you think?
