Lift and Co. Cannabis Expo

Canada’s leading business conference for the cannabis industry is coming to Toronto. Here are 5 things you need to see at LIFT & Co. Cannabis Expo!

We are at the tipping point of the largest social change movement in the last 100 years, and Canada will be at the center of the global legal cannabis market. What does this mean for cannabis businesses and the industry moving forward?

It’s time to find out.

The LIFT & Co. Cannabis Expo strives to answer some of these questions while bringing together the most influential faces of cannabis culture and business in Canada. Featuring hundreds of exhibitors from around the world, renowned speakers, and the movers and shakers in the global industry, the Expo is Canada’s biggest and premiere event for cannabis consumers, industry professionals, investors, and media.

Here are 5 things to check out at the massive 4-day mega event.

May 24th, the Cannabis Business Conference

Bringing together leading experts from across the industry to tackle subject matter from a uniquely Canadian perspective. LIFT is proud to host the third, highly anticipated Lift & Co. Cannabis Business Conference (LCBC).

This exclusive all-day conference is your opportunity to join and thrive in the discussion around both the fast-growing medical and upcoming adult-use markets and how Canadian businesses are in a position of strong leadership.

The LCBC will be held on Thursday, May 24 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) and kicks off the Lift & Co. Expo weekend, which also takes place at the MTCC on May 25-27, 2018. The LCBC is a must-attend event for anyone working in cannabis, or looking to get involved in the space. It is a great opportunity to meet other cannabis professionals and thought leaders, and kick-start meaningful conversations, relationships and deals.

May 25th, Industry Day

On May 25, the day before the consumer tradeshow, we invite cannabis professionals to participate in Lift’s Industry Day, when exhibitors and others in the industry can network and engage in business development before the general public hits the show floor on May 26 and 27.

With the LIFT & Co. cannabis expo setting the stage, this is arguably the largest networking opportunity for professionals within the cannabis industry.

May 26th and 27th, General Admission Demo Day

This year’s Expo happens at an exciting time, just weeks before the Canadian government’s promised cannabis legalization in summer of 2018.

Featuring over 200 exhibitors from across North America and Europe, main stage talks by cannabis thought leaders, live cooking and growing demos, the TVape lounge, and a cannabis career fair, the Lift & Co. cannabis Expo is your chance to learn more about the fast-paced world of cannabis.

Cannabis Gadgets and Tech

The biggest players in the game will be at the demo day on Saturday. That means they will be bringing some of the coolest tech and gadgets for consumers to try. From high-tech vapes to new growing techniques, all the greatest innovations in the cannabis scene will be on display.

On top of that, you can guarantee that sponsors and exhibitors will be giving away free things to go along with their product demo.

The TVape – Vape Lounge

The TVape Lounge will be a first of its kind in Canada, and its happening on-site at the Lift Cannabis Expo in Toronto on May 27 and 28, 2017. Some of the best devices cost hundreds of dollars, and they’re almost always final sale; the TVape Lounge addresses this by allowing medical cannabis consumers to try  – and if they like – purchase a vape at the expo.

“What’s unique with the lounge is that finally, individuals have the opportunity to have the best and most functional units right in one place, to play with and try out,” Nima says. “I don’t know anywhere else you can do that. It’s one of the first times an individual can shop or review vaporizers like they do with electronics at Best Buy, let’s say.”

The Internet Reacts to Canada Legalizing Weed

Published

on

It’s official! Prime Minister Trudeau has announced the date recreational cannabis sales will be legal in Canada.

Jah Bless to all our Canadian friends. Yes, cry, sing, cheer, here’s the internet’s reaction to Canada legalizing weed.

A near 100-year prohibition has come to an end as the Prime Minister of the Great White North announced the official date that marijuana will be legal nationwide. That day is October 17th, 2018.

The internet was chalk full of priceless reactions to Canada legalizing weed. First, it started with some genuine attempts to congratulate a nation that had fought hard and long to see this day through. Ex-Youtube star and pro-gamer xCodex made his piece.

And activist Dana Larsen chimed in with a notion that although this is a huge first step, there’s also a ton of work to do before those who use cannabis are truly free under the law.

Then the hilarity ensued. The jokes seemed to surround the little-beef President Trump had started with the insulting tariffs on Canada.

A Stash Story: Checkmate

Published

on

Most cannabis enthusiasts have a special container in their life. It’s a container that holds many things very near and dear to their heart. Papers, grinders, filters and more, a stoner’s stash box can tell you a lot about the owner. Is it big? Small? Dirty? Clean? Organized? Or messy? What about the story behind it?

In a Stash Story, we try to reveal the personal touches to choosing a place to store your herb. Your stash box could be a gift, a discovery, or an epiphany. But we want to see it!

A Stash Story: Checkmate

“Fresh out of school with a diploma in hand (makes for an excellent rolling tray, btw), I decided it was time to shift from my college habits and start smoking weed like a gentleman. It was hard to get rid of the IPhone 3G box that served me so well over those 4 years, but at the end of the day, I forced myself to toss it in the recycling bin and start fresh. Knowing what I had on its way made it slightly easier. 

I ordered my new stash box online and it arrived within a week. This may seem dramatic, but my new stash box is majestic. It really is. Like, checkmate, other stash boxes. I know it’s not a competition and I’m mostly kidding, but take a look at this thing. I believe it’s meant for cigars but turns out it works perfectly to stash my weed. There’s ample room for my bud, lighters, grinder and any and all additional tools I need to roll the perfect joint.

When my parents visited my new apartment a few months ago, dad questioned my newfound love for chess. Before I had the chance to respond, my mom reminded him (and me) that I was absolutely fascinated with the game of as a grade 1 student and how wonderful it is that I’m getting back into it. A part of me wanted to open it up and be like “THIS IS WHAT IT IS. IT’S FOR MY MARIJUANAS” but I thought better of it and defused the situation by asking my dad if 6 pawns equal 1 queen. He rolled his eyes and moved on to the next room.

So uh, ya. This is my premium stash box. It’s great.”
