Kristina is a passionate advocate — with a mission to support ending stigma that surrounds cannabis use. She is also a proud feminist supporting inclusivity within corporations for equal representation in leadership roles and a voice at the table.

Kristina also has a personal medical story — she suffered from a serious brain cyst resulting in debilitating migraines and subsequent health conditions — including the undesired side-effects from prescription pain killers. Kristina then discovered the medical benefits of CBD — as a non-smoker, she desired a precisely dosed, non-smoking, delivery system other than smoking or vaping. This prompted her journey with Rapid Dose Therapeutics.

Rapid Dose Therapeutics is a Canadian life sciences company public on the CSE: DOSE. QuickStrip™, is their flagship delivery system and product. QuickStrip™ is a sublingual thin dissolvable film delivery system — providing a discreet and Smoke-Free Choice™ for cannabis consumers.

A No Smoke. No Smell. No Stigma solution.

Kristina now shares her personal story, and educates the public on the smoke-free delivery system, to support the normalization and education of medical cannabis applications.

NIAGARA FALLS, ON JUNE 09, 2020. North America’s leading cannabis cultivation and extraction conference, tradeshow and awards show, Grow Up, has made the difficult decision to reschedule the 4th annual show in Niagara Falls, ON which was slated to take place September 1-3, 2020.

This decision has been made from monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation both in Ontario and around the world, along with the advice and recommendations from Grow Up’s advisory board.

“The health and safety of our attendees, speakers and exhibitors are our main priority,” says Randy Rowe, President of Grow Up. “Even though our event is three months away, we feel that we cannot responsibly produce a show that brings together 4,500 delegates and over 200 exhibitors from around the world”.

Grow Up Conference and Expo will be bringing its conference, tradeshow and awards to Victoria BC next summer. This west coast show featuring the Grow Up Extraction Zone, hosted by Extraction Magazine, will bring over one hundred high-level industry speakers, exhibitors and thousands of delegates together on Vancouver Island. Details to follow.

The premier Grow Up Awards Gala will still take place, but will be hosted in Victoria BC in the Summer of 2021. “The Cannabis industry has made tremendous growth over the last year and we are determined to recognize the excellence and innovation with our 2nd annual awards show”, says Neill Dixon, Co-Founder of Grow Up. “Bringing the Grow Up Awards Gala to Victoria BC will make it easier for our west coast growers and suppliers to be a part of the celebration”.

The 2021 Niagara Falls version of Grow Up will take place September 1-3, 2021 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, Niagara Falls, ON.

We appreciate your patience and thank you for your support and stay safe.

Thank You
