The cannabis industry is a huge industry with an estimated global value of 27.7 billion USD and growing daily. With the industry expanding into other industries many cannabis businesses are turning to technology to help drive growth, increase safety and security, as well as streamline processes to increase productivity. Although, many cannabis businesses are turning to technology some are struggling with availability due to location. Many farmers who want to use harvesting technologies are struggling to access Wi-Fi allowing them to use the technologies available. Harry Brelsford of the CannaTech Group sits down with Alex Wilson of Collabsion, Inc. to discuss Wi-Fi networking in remote locations.
The CannaTech Expo was held June 21-24 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With an amazing speaker line up this conference afforded attendees the opportunity to access valuable information covering the entire cannabis technology spectrum from IT infrastructure to technologies supporting growing, processing, manufacturing, and retail/dispensaries. Harry Brelsford of The CannaTech Group sits down with Dan Foote to discuss this first year conference.
The Cannabis Industry has grown dramatically in recent years in response to expanding legalization. Currently there are 37 states and Washington, D.C., who allow medical-use marijuana, and 18 states and D.C. allowing adult recreational use. With many states jumping on board the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act in April which is a proposed act to remove cannabis as a “scheduled” drug under the Controlled Substances Act. Harry Brelsford of The CannaTech Group sits down with Luis Alvarez of Alvarez Technology Group to discuss the changes in the Cannabis industry and the knowledge he has gained.
