Medicinal Cannabis Industry Australia’s ACannabis conference is back in virtual form on March 15 and 16 with discounted tickets available exclusively to Cannabiz members.

Themed ‘Bridging the gap: evidence, confidence, access’, the event will tackle the industry’s changing landscape, patient access, the regulatory environment in Australia and overseas, the evidence needed to build patient and prescriber confidence and innovation in the boardroom.

Shadow assistant minister for health and ageing Ged Kearney

Speakers include Levin Health MD Mark Brayshaw, shadow assistant minister for health and ageing Ged Kearney, Fortescue Metals Group director and Levin Health board member Jenn Morris, and Clever Leaves chief regulatory officer Julian Wilches.

A session entitled ‘How the Australian regulatory environment is evolving and implications for patients and industry’ will feature Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) boss John Skerritt and Avi Rebera from the Department of Health, followed by a panel discussion on understanding the regulator’s requirements.

A ‘fireside chat’ focused on opportunities in the EU/UK medicinal cannabis market will see Europe Materia MD Nick Pateras in conversation with Cannabiz co-founder and chief growth officer Martin Lane.

And the event will close with a panel of Australian medicinal cannabis CEOs discussing the industry’s future including Rodney Cocks (Cronos Australia), Peter Crock (Cann Group), Elisabetta Faenza (LeafCann) and Russell Harding (MedReLeaf).
