As we head into the second half of 2016, CBE Press LLC has a lot to share with readers, potential marketing partners, and sponsors selling products and services to the growing ranks of cannabis licensees that are building the legal and regulated industry in the good old U-S-of-A—many of which are increasingly turning to CBE for information that helps them run their businesses better as they pursue profitability.
For those diehard followers and readers, the Cannabis Business Executive website has added new content that will enhance the primary and secondary marketplace for all of our reader’s; including the owners and operators of producer, processor and retail operations; cannabis ancillary businesses; and the local, state, and federal regulators.
We are in the process of introducing The CBE Business Exchange, a classified section, forum and one-stop resource center for industry professionals to share ideas, network, sell assets, find real estate, suppliers, receive valuable training, advice and information from peers and providers.
One of the new resources on our site is a series of “How to” webinars conducted by Offit Kurman, a Baltimore, Maryland based law firm that has launched a cannabis practice and agreed to partner with CBE to bring a variety of helpful, FREE webinars for anyone interested in the business and industry.
2016 Topics to be reviewed include, but are not limited to:
- Protecting Your Cannabusiness’s Intellectual Property
- The Cole Memorandum and Limitations on Marketing to Children
- Focus on Maryland: Getting Past Stage 1 and Into the Black
- Re-Scheduling or De-Scheduling Cannabis and the Impact on Your Cannabusiness
- Opportunities and Challenges for Interstate Expansion
- Focus on Pennsylvania: Building a Winning Application.
On the personnel front, CBE is happy to announce two key hirings.
