Four special forums during the month of May will focus on cannabis and investing

The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) is pleased to announce the launch of the Cannabis Investor Series, a four-episode virtual series that will provide insights into all key facets of the rapidly-evolving cannabis industry. On each Tuesday in May, participants will hear from trailblazing experts and influencers who are shaping the industry and will learn about the exciting investment opportunities emerging as legal cannabis gains increasing acceptance worldwide. More than 70 companies and personalities will be providing insights.

The Cannabis Investor Series consists of four distinct forums exploring different aspects of the industry in depth:

Episode 1: Investing in American Cannabis (May 4, 2:00-4:00 p.m. EDT)

With cannabis legalization rapidly expanding across the United States, the opportunities for investors are growing as well. This session will explore hot-button topics including the path to further legalization, regional competition, and social equity.

Media Sponsor: Benzinga Cannabis

Episode 2: Cannabis Culture and Capital Markets (May 11, 2:00-4:00 p.m. EDT)

The convergence of cannabis culture and capital markets will be explored through subjects including the legacy and future of cannabis media, building a household cannabis brand, and a profile of New York-based cannabis culture mavens Happy Munkey and their fight for an equitable industry in the state.

Media Sponsor: High Times

Episode 3: Cannabis Health and Wellness (May 18, 2:00-4:00 p.m. EDT)

Speakers will discuss cannabinoid treatments for the brain and mental health, cannabis and community health, cannabis and athletics, and more.

Media Sponsor: Business of Cannabis

Episode 4: The Global Cannabis Economy (May 25, 2:00-4:00 p.m. EDT)

The legalization trend in cannabis is a truly global one. This session will explore what is happening around the world, including medical cannabis in Europe and Israel, cultivation in Mexico and across Latin America, and recent developments in Asia.

Media Sponsor: Prohibition Partners
