9:00 am – 5:00 pm – Dr. John MacKay’s Institute of Extraction Technology: Tour Edition (Additional Fee Required for Certification)

The extraction market has changed in the last year while we were indoors. There are more extraction technologies available than there were in 2019. The processes involve more chemistry and physics. To provide a meaningful impact on your business in the shortest amount of time has resulted in three new courses on practical extraction.

To maximize your time, we have made some significant changes to the courses. The first is to limit the number of attendees at each session to 16. The second is the inclusion of more hands-on activities for extraction and analyses. The third is always tying these principles to have a return on investment in less than one week. Coming away with an understanding of the impact your extraction decisions have on your capital and operating costs is the goal. The measurable impact is the goal.

In this presentation, you’ll hear how a medical cannabis physician managed/treated his first COVID-19 patient with phytocannabinoids, plant medicine, vitamins and minerals and “conventional medicine”, what lessons were learned and what opportunities presented themselves post-COVID-19.

The Institute of Extraction Technology offers two certifications for this training location.
  • One Day without a test for competency: Certificate of Attendance for Merging Business and Science of Extraction
  • One Day with a test for competency: Certificate of Attendance and Passing Competency Test
Seating capacity is limited to 16 students. Actual extraction will be done onsite as well as cannabinoid testing. For more information on pricing and to reserve a spot, go to the Institute of Extraction Technology website.

10:15am-11:00am – PANEL: The Truth About Delta 8 THC: What is it?

The truth is, we’ve all heard about THC, but not many fully understand exactly what Delta 8 THC is. In this panel, we will open up the discussion in-depth to highlight what is and isn’t known about this common cannabinoid. How Delta 8 THC works within the human endocannabinoid system will be examined, as will the many developing medicinal and beneficial properties it possesses. There has been plenty of misinformation and broad generalization surrounding THC alongside the growth of the cannabis industry and here we will take a much more focused look at what it is in full.


11:15am – 12:00pm How Does the Endocannabinoid System Work With Delta 8 THC?

During this presentation, Dr. Rosado will review what Delta 8 THC is, the differences between Delta 9 THC and Delta 8 THC, the bioavailability of Delta 8 THC, and how it works within the Endocannabinoid System. Furthermore, Dr. Rosado will address the issue of legality, its medical benefits and lastly, tips for both retailers and consumers of Delta 8 THC.

12:00pm – 1:00pm – Lunch Break

1:15pm – 2:00pm – PANEL: Is DELTA 8 Safe or Dangerous? Claims and Research

The cannabis industry is still developing and that means the claims and research surrounding DELTA 8 THC are developing as well. This panel will take a look into the evidence-based research surrounding the safety, or lack thereof, of DELTA 8. While it has been deemed generally safe and is anecdotally known as much by the public, a further look into these claims is needed for a better understanding as we move into future regulations and applications. Current and ongoing research will also be highlighted here as a way to demonstrate instances where DELTA 8 is safe and times where it could potentially be dangerous.



4:15pm – 5pm – Panel: Marketing Delta 8: Figuring it Out

Business opportunities surrounding cannabis and Delta 8 THC are plentiful, but successful marketing approaches are essential to capitalize on these. This panel will dive into the many facets of effective Delta 8 marketing and the steps your business or product can take to share the successes of a growing industry. This process is ever evolving, and we will examine some case studies of effective marketing as well as suggest best practices and things to avoid. A marketing strategy is essential for any growing business and this panel aims to put that power directly in your hands.


10:15am – 11:00am – Panel:Delta 8 and it’s surrounding legalities

Delta-8-THC products are popping up and probably invading your ad space. As the industry dives further into the potential that the minor cannabinoids hold, Delta-8-THC should continue to hold its weight in that category. But, what’s the deal with its status at the DEA and FDA? Is it legally available across the US? The DEA’s interim final ruling released in 2020 updated its original guidance on allowable CBD products to contain less than 0.3% delta-9-THC. With this new ruling, that percentage must be maintained through the entire processing on a dry weight basis. Although there is no regulation on Delta-8-THC as of now, this could still spell bad news for the industry. However, products are out there now for purchase and we will need to wait for further guidance.

11:15am – 12:00pm – SOLO: The How, What, and Why of Delta 8 THC

How it is made, what it is good for, and why we love it so much! CEO of Team Maryjane, Josh Whitaker, will answer not only these inquiries but all the pressing questions surrounding Delta 8. For instance, is Delta 8 safe? Legal? If so, what are the benefits besides just getting you high? If you have any questions about this magnificent cannabinoid, this is a talk you don’t want to miss!

12:00pm – 01:00pm – LUNCH BREAK

1:15pm – 2:00pm – PANEL: Delta 8 THC; Trending and Projections

Interest in a new cannabinoid is growing–one that is similar to delta-9-THC but differs in its structure chemistry. Delta-8 came on the scene within the last year or so. Although a minor cannabinoid, companies are finding ways to extract and produce large enough amounts to create delta-8-only products. As delta-8-THC causes psychotropic effects, the intoxication is less so than that produced by delta-9-THC. This cannabinoid is more stable than delta-9-THC, meaning that it won’t degrade into CBD over time, which can prolong shelf life. Plus, it offers potential medicinal benefits, including anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-nausea effects; it may also stimulate appetite. However, it may come with its own safety concerns, such as cardiovascular effects. Clearly, we need to learn a lot more about this cannabinoid but its lower intoxicating effects means it could be very beneficial for people who avoid delta-9-THC for those reasons.


2:15pm – 3:00pm – PANEL: All the Other Delta’s and Minors: The Overview

Cannabinoid science and research continues to develop and with that comes a host of lesser-known compounds. While these compounds may be deemed minor, they have yet to be fully explored and could provide benefits still unseen. This panel will take an over-arching look at the other Delta’s and minor cannabinoids that fall into this category. We will examine what is currently known, the types of research and studies being conducted, and the potential uses of these emerging compounds. Participants will gain leading knowledge into an exciting and developing arena that can provide an advantage when exploring new products, treatments, and uses for minor cannabinoids.
