O’Cannabiz 2019

The 2019 O’Cannabiz Conference and Expo is happening in Toronto this weekend. The dates are from April 25 to April 29. This will be a beehive of activity if past shows and the current mania of growth in this industry is any indication.

This year the conference is happening at the International Center in Mississagua at 6900 Airport Road, where there is usually plenty of free parking. This location is a fair distance from downtown Toronto where most of the cannabis conferences take place. It is right beside the airport however, so that is a bonus for out of town visitors.

At any rate, there is a lot of excitement and quite amazing growth since legalization has started to become widespread industry as anyone who has not been hiding under a rock for the past 4 or 5 years is probably aware of. The O’Cannabiz conference is voted #1 cannabis event in Canada by High Canada magazine, and they are usually on top of these industry events.

Here is an update on the wondrous effects of CBD which is a non-psychoactive element in the cannabis plant which is getting constant press nowadays for the positive effects people have been experiencing in it’s usage. We snagged this section of info from the High Canada Instagram post, which they apparently got from @traitbiosciences….hope no one minds,

Reposted from @traitbiosciences – CBD IS AMAZING 🙌🏻🌿…Studies say CBD can be an all natural alternative to many anti-anxiety & sleep aid meds. When ingested, CBD activates cell receptors in our Endocannabinoid System that help alleviate anxiety. Research suggests that CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors, which can reduce anxiety & boost mood. Studies have reported that patients suffering from depression or anxiety often have a smaller hippocampus. The hippocampus is part of the brain and plays a critical role in many brain functions, such as memory and cognition. Successful treatment of depression and anxiety is associated with the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus. According to research, evidence suggests that CBD may help the hippocampus regenerate neurons.

Stay tuned for updates on this wonderful substance as the FDA is apparently slated to review CBD usability according to their rules around the end of May 2019.
