Hawaii Cannabis Industry Reaches New Heights With Two-Day Expo

The Hawaii Cannabis Industry will ring in 2016 at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall with a two-day event featuring local and national medical Cannabis experts, alongside an industry trade show of cannabis advocates, patient services, home-growing instruments, accessories and lifestyle products.

“Medical Cannabis in Hawaii will experience exceptional growth and attention this year with the establishment of state approved dispensaries,” said Wendy Gibson of the Drug Policy Forum of Hawaii. “The challenge is that there are more questions than answers when it comes to how to become a medical cannabis patient in Hawaii and how to safely access cannabis as medicine. We welcome this opportunity to share a wealth of information with Hawaii residents,” said Gibson.

Kyle Paredes, the event organizer and advocate said “What we’ve done with The Hawaii Cannabis Expo is get some of the leading local and national experts together in one space so patients and potential patients can get their questioned answered,” Paredes continued, “we’ve really got it all under one roof, if you want to learn anything and everything about Cannabis, from health benefits to home-growing and regulations, you can get it at this event.”
