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.

We may talk about social equity in theory, but how often do we, as an entire industry, take time and opportunity to reflect on what social equity really means, and whether the cannabis landscape in Canada is indeed an equitable space for all?

Social equity programs in cannabis recognize and seek to reconcile the disproportionate representation of Women, Indigenous, BIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, seniors, and those with prior convictions within the cannabis industry, as these groups continue to encounter financial, technical, systemic, and societal barriers to entry into the industry. Social equity is about removing these barriers to entry, and creating pathways to success.

This panel will discuss social equity as a whole as well as the status of Women in Cannabis. We will be sharing current data and research highlighting the gaps and imbalances that continue to plague women and other groups from advancing in our sector.

Thought leaders Necole Hines, Rosy Mondin, Jacqui Menezes, and Keri McBrien will share their insights from their personal experiences as well as what they’ve seen in the industry, as opportunities to create more equitable spaces that gives ALL people the opportunity to advance and prosper in the cannabis space.

Co-moderated by Donna Johannson, founder of Canadian Women in Cannabis (CWIC) and CWIC Team member Anne-Marie Fischer of CannaWrite

    ASCERA has had a long & tedious journey in pursuit of higher standards for the Cannabis vaping industry. With a dream to conquer the market with a superior & premium vape cartridge that is not only affordable but also reliable. Using industry-leading zirconia ceramic & Viton gaskets, ASCERA is sweeping the market with a vape cart that speaks for itself. ASCERA was built on the ideals of a cart that highlights your oil without affecting the integrity or flavour.

    Like all journeys, there are always hurdles. ASCERA went through its fair share, including struggling to meet demand due to a Viton shortage caused by the pandemic. ASCERA’s journey also included a rigorous R & D process, where numerous technologies were discarded & replaced with more health-conscious solutions to ensure satisfaction for the end-user, and compliance with the regulatory bodies.
