Cannabis data science is changing the face of the industry, and those who don’t change with it will be left behind. That’s why we’re so excited about Cannabis + Innovation, a panel discussion and networking event sponsored by Cannabiz MD, this Thursday evening, right here in the Baltimore-Washington area.

Join four Cannabis Innovators to discuss tech innovations and data science for industry best practices, followed by a networking event hosted by Tea Pad. This event is perfect for cultivators and processors both new and established, as well as investors or anyone needing to navigate the rapidly-changing waters of the cannabis industry.

Our panel will feature:
