San Diego to host major CBD conference for 2020

A major conference to highlight the importance of CBD health and wellness products has been announced for next year.

Impact CBD takes place from August 30 to September 2, 2020 in San Diego, California, and will feature education sessions analysing the effect of CBD on patients, clients, health practices, and businesses. It is expected to host hundreds of CBD providers and experience centres.

It will be supported by ImpactCBDexpo.com – a year-round content feed featuring curated posts, articles, blogs, videos, and podcasts chronicling the impact of CBD.

Julie Keller Callaghan, vice president of content & business development for event organisers Questex Wellness Market, said: “We discovered that CBD impacts so many aspects of the health and wellness market… so we decided to expand our digital and event footprint to serve this demand and, thus, the idea for Impact CBD was born.”

According to a press release, ImpactCBDexpo.com will serve as a source for health and wellness professionals to understand the science, clinical studies, products, delivery options, health benefits, and condition-specific applications of CBD to patients, clients, and customers.

The event will focus on the most pressing issues that define the impact CBD has on patients, clients, health practices, and business, the release added.

Initial focus topics will include the cannabis plant, the endocannabinoid system, sourcing, dosing, labelling, COAs, credit-card processing, liability, insurance, legislation, and the Food And Drug Administration (FDA).

John Siefert, Group President at Questex, said: “We want to make it easier for professionals to get vetted and sound guidance, legal advice, and more throughout the year and celebrate this knowledge sharing at the Impact CBD Expo where attendees can see, touch, feel, taste, and experience CBD on the show floor, in custom suites, and in treatment rooms.”
