COVID-19 has left its mark on all businesses, including those that operate within the cannabis space. Technology and science of cannabis have felt the virus also.  The spring ACS 2020 National Meeting & Expo was scheduled to take place in Philadelphia this spring, however, as with many cannabis events they have had to revisit how they will be conducting business going forward. COVID-19 made the virtual symposium venue become a popular method for companies like Cannabis Science Technology (CST) to promote their company.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) was founded in 1876 by a group of chemists whose vision was to have an organization that would be a powerful and healthy stimulus, by enlightening students and the public to have a better appreciation of the science.

Cannabis Science and Technology (CST) was looking to celebrate the partnership they have developed with the American Chemical Society's subdivision (CANN). The COVID-19 virus upset the plans for the multimedia platforms presentation of the partnership, whose focus is on educating on the science and technology of analytical testing on legal cannabis. It also includes an understanding of:

  • Cultivation
  • Extraction
  • Quality control

The Spring 2020 CANN Virtual Symposium may be an example of the way that cannabis events of the future will be promoted. No longer will crowds of people be acceptable. Large groups will not be tolerated going forward, and other methods of exhibiting the company' s products and services will be promoted. CST, along with CANN and ACS, will be treading on a new green path. Virtual symposiums are perhaps the way of the future, thanks to COVID-19.

The Spring 2020 CANN Virtual Symposium

The two-day virtual symposium included researchers, industry experts, and cannabis scientists. Dozens of talks were presented, covering a wide range of exciting topics. Presentations from the 2020 ElShohly Award were displayed virtually, to the winners, as a special part of the virtual cannabis symposium.

CST is a leading publisher for cannabis science and provides the ideal platform for valuable information to be available for the cannabis community at large, according to the CANN  lead scientist for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Julia Bramante. CANN looks forward to the partnership it has entered into with CST to continue the forward motion of driving the initiative for more information sharing within the science and technology space for cannabis.

What’s next?

CST (Cannabis Science and Technology) is excited moving forward to be the publishing partner of CANN for the ACS Fall 2020 National Meeting & Expo. San Francisco will be the host city of this and many other cannabis events whose coordinators are hoping that the current pandemic situation will be resolved and that cannabis events throughout the nation will continue in the old age face to face venue.

What’s down the green road for cannabis events

Who knows, perhaps cannabis events moving forward will be presented in the same manner as CANN provided the Spring 2020 CANN Virtual Symposium.  If social distancing is part of our future, then Cannabis Science and Technology (CST) may have an edge on the other vendors who usually attend cannabis events through face to face venues.
