During the morning portion of the conference, Anthony Dutton, CEO, co-founder and director at Cannex Capital Holdings (CSE:CNNX), hosted a panel called Developing a High-value Portfolio of Multi-state Assets in the Cannabis Industry. Additionally, Steven Hawkins, president and CEO of Horizons ETFs, provided a general cannabis outlook for the public markets.

Despite his expertise and close eye on the cannabis market, Hawkins is unsure of the future after legalization in Canada. “We really do not know what will happen on October 17,” he said.

Hawkins added that although he doesn’t know how the market will shape up, it is sure to be different.

For the remainder of the panel, Hawkins discussed a variety of important sales and acquisitions within the Canadian cannabis industry. Horizons has benefited from the rapid rise of the market with the launch of two ETFs dedicated to following the industry.

“HMMJ’s growth has far exceeded our expectations as investors have strongly supported the sector in anticipation of Canada’s upcoming recreational marijuana legalization,” Hawkins said after the ETF crossed the C$1-billion mark.

The afternoon portion of the conference consisted of two important panel discussions that covered the Canadian cannabis industry.

Both the first panel, How Green is Green? Outlook on the Canadian Cannabis Market, and the second panel, Cannabis in Canada: What Investors Need to Know About the Changing Legal Landscape, were moderated by Jay Rosenthal, co-founder and president of Business of Cannabis, a research and media company focused on the cannabis market.

The first panel of the afternoon included:

  • Cam Battley, CCO of Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB,OTCQB:ACBFF)
  • Danny Brody, vice president, investor relations, at the Green Organic Dutchman Holdings (TSX:TGOD,OTCQX:TGODF)
  • Mark Noble, senior vice president, ETF strategy, at Horizons ETFs
  • Chris Wagner, CEO of Emerald Health Therapeutics (TSX:EMH,OTCQX:EMHTF)

After discussing how the cannabis industry may change following legalization, the panel went on to discuss the importance of cannabis being available to consumers in a multitude of forms.

The panel ended with a warning from Battley. He noted that there are far too many cannabis companies and said many of them will be weeded out in the next few years.

The final panel of the conference included:

  • Greg Engel, CEO of Organigram Holdings (TSXV:OGI,OTCQX:OGRMF)
  • Jessica Martin, vice president, public relations, at Invictus MD (TSXV:GENE,OTC:IVITF)
  • George Robinson, CEO of RavenQuest BioMed (CSE:RQB)
