What Makes CannMed Unique and Why You Don’t Want to Miss It

CannMed started in 2016, when Medicinal Genomics partnered with Dr. Raphael Mechoulam to host the leading researchers and clinicians in cannabinoid medicine at Boston’s Harvard Medical School. Since then, CannMed has transformed into an industry event that attracts the brightest minds in cannabis science, medicine, cultivation, and safety testing. 

In 2023, CannMed transformed into an Innovation and Investment Summit held at the J.W. Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, Marco Island, FL. The new location and the new format included expanded professional development workshops, engaging networking events, interactive panels, and curated oral and poster presentations approved by a world-class advisory board. The event received overwhelming praise from attendees, who valued the networking, prospecting, education, and community. 

The CannMed 24 Innovation and Investment Summit will build on last year’s event, and further establish it as the industry’s premiere event. Read more about what makes CannMed unique and why you don’t want to miss it!


CannMed has created a reputation for bringing together the top cannabis professionals in the industry and continues to do so year after year. Look no further than the CannMed Advisory Board for evidence that the most esteemed clinicians and researchers make the trip to CannMed each year. But what sets CannMed apart from other events is that there are ample opportunities to interact and connect with industry leaders:

We invite you to join us for an exclusive exhibitor gathering during the May 13th lunch break. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the beach, this event offers a unique fusion of business and relaxation, where you will explore each exhibitor’s dedicated tiki stand to discover innovative solutions, forge new partnerships, and explore industry insights.

In addition, attendees will be able to collect stamps from each exhibitor’s tiki stand to earn entry into a drawing for exclusive prizes.

Savor an array of culinary delights as well as complementary tropical beverages and handcrafted cocktails to complement the beachy atmosphere and inspire meaningful conversations.

Get ready to unwind and connect in style at the CannMed 24 Surfside Social.  This event offers the opportunity to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf, while continuing to collaborate with fellow attendees.

There will be a variety of activities at this event, including:

  • Volleyball
  • Cornhole
  • Ladder Ball
  • Bocce
  • Kan Jam
  • Kayaking
  • Horseshoes
  • Giant Pong
  • Lawn Darts
  • Putting Greens
  • Giant Checkers / Chess
  • Paddle Boards

Beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels will be available whether you want to lounge in the shade, soak in the sun, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean.

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow attendees, share insights, and build relationships that extend beyond the conference room.

“Well, I have already called a bunch of friends and I said,
You have to be there next year because this is high-level networking.”
Jill Ellsworth

You will be able to identify new business partnerships and research opportunities with decision makers that are just a conversation away. In fact, more than 20% of attendees at CannMed 23 were C-level executives.  CannMed provides an incredible opportunity for attendees to find ways to move their businesses forward in a highly competitive industry. Whether you are looking for a manufacturer who can benefit from your new product, an investor who understands the issues around funding cannabinoid and cannabis innovation, or a clinician who can collaborate on a research study. You will find them at CannMed! 

“I have made over a dozen new connections that I think are meaningful that are bringing possibilities to either teaming agreements or collaborations on future research and development and business workings.”

Providing world-class cannabis education and highlighting the latest advancements in research has always been the main objective for CannMed. Each of the CannMed presentations is vetted by the CannMed Advisory Board to ensure the information is relevant, novel, clearly communicated, and free from commercial bias. These high standards mean that the research shared at CannMed continues to shape the industry and will ultimately help millions benefit from the plant and its compounds. We share videos of all the CannMed presentations for free in the CannMed Archives because we believe access to quality information should not be limited.

Additionally, the Medical Practicum is an invaluable resource for clinicians who want to understand the therapeutic potential of cannabis medicine. Cannabis patients need knowledgeable clinicians to help guide their treatment, and the CannMed Medical Practicum is one of the few courses available that provides evidence-based information from experienced cannabis clinicians.

“I wanted to congratulate and acknowledge you (and your respective teams) for organizing such an amazing event. All the comments I heard from participants were full of praise. A big thank you for this event, and more globally, for your contribution and support to the international development of cannabis research and industry."
Karl Ravet, PhD
Director of R&D
TESORO Genetics


The CannMed attendees are a unique community of like-minded individuals from different disciplines whose goal is to advance the cannabis industry and gain knowledge from one another. Whether it is a newly discovered compound, a destructive plant pathogen, a better treatment protocol, or updated testing standards, the cannabis industry is constantly changing. CannMed is where industry leaders come to learn about new opportunities and collaborate to solve emerging challenges.

“So CannMed plays a huge role in advancing not only my work, but medical cannabis as an entity because it provides an opportunity for super smart scientists and physicians to gather in a safe space, to discuss research, basic science research, medical indications, and in a robust way that doesn't feel like the business pieces of it, doesn't feel like you're being sold something or marketed to.

And so this is the third year that I've participated, and it's been an incredible experience each year.”
