The 5th International Medical Cannabis Conference, also dubbed CannX Virtual 2020, is taking place online next week, with researchers, health professionals, scientists, startups, entrepreneurs, agricultural experts, and investors meeting virtually in live sessions and interactive networking opportunities to discuss innovation and the latest developments in the field of medical cannabis.
The conference will feature a program with scientific, industry, business and agriculture sessions, with lectures by leading international and Israeli speakers. Among these will be special sessions for investors and VCs as well as pharmaceutical professionals.
This year, the conference will include a special event in honor of Professor Raphael Mechoulam, the award-winning Israeli organic chemist credited with laying the foundation for the scientific research of cannabis, who is celebrating his 90th birthday.
Mechoulam is set to give the keynote speech and will be interviewed in an honorary session by Dr. David (Dedi) Meiri, an Israeli researcher and assistant professor who heads the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research at the Technion-Institute of Technology.
The conference, which runs from October 26 -28, will include a vibrant virtual exhibition in a dedicated exhibitor space with an “online theater” and opportunities for live interaction.
The sessions from CannX Virtual 2020 will be available on-demand for three months after the conference is over.
CannX is held in partnership with Cann10, an Israeli medical cannabis company and accelerator.
