Psychedelic Summit

Join Grow Up at our one-day Psychedelic Summit as we examine the cultural roots of the modern medical psychedelic renaissance along with a ‘psychedelic therapy 101’ for the neophyte. Psychedelic substances have been around for millenia used by cultures across the globe as medicines and in ceremonies. Now thanks to the persevering work of researchers, scientists, First Nations and therapists from all backgrounds we see these medicines being used to  treat PTSD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction and more.

Tuesday June 21st
Passes needed:
These are the brightest minds in cannabis growth, sharing experiences, best practices and goodwill amongst growers. And this camaraderie will come in handy as the push for industry standardization grows. They’ll talk about a year of challenges, adjusting to regulations, and offer insight into how Health Canada can adjust its role to promote better growing and cannabis quality. Many relationships were forged among growers last year, and it’s not far-fetched to see a future advocacy group forming over the lunch table.
