  • Omar Figueroa
    Furthermore, a crucial highlight of the afternoon session of the Cannabis Drinks Expo was a panel discussion modulated by attorney Omar Figueroa. In “Cannabis Regulations Across Boundaries,” the panel discussed the expansion of cannabis drinks products along with the federal laws and regulations. Until every U.S. state legalizes recreational cannabis, any company looking to launch, develop or grow a cannabis drinks product will need to have a very detailed understanding of what is – and what is not – allowed in every single geographic region where they plan to do business.

  • Warren Bobrow
    You can fully leverage your creativity and originality to innovate category-changing products once you have understood the science of cannabis. To educate more about it, world-renowned mixologist Warren Bobrow - also known as the “Cocktail Whisperer,” gave a presentation on cannabis-infused cocktails.

  • Rachel Burkons
    Later that afternoon, Rachel Burkons, Co-Owner of Altered Plate led a panel discussion dedicated to the world of cannabis drinking and dining. According to the panelists, the popular trends within the food and drinks industry could be coming to the cannabis drinks market as well. For example, the “farm-to-table” movement is now giving birth to a similar “crop-to-kitchen cuisine.”
