Event Information

Title: Unpacking the Cannabis Opportunity


Cannabis is taking the U.S. by storm, with retail sales approaching $20 billion annually as more states legalize medical and recreational marijuana, mature markets continue to grow and mainstream companies enter the fray. 

The industry’s explosive growth has created a wealth of opportunities for packaging companies as consumers clamor for an increasingly diverse array of products, from infused sodas to cannabis gummies, chocolates, soluble powders…even bath bombs. With the possibility of federal marijuana reform on the horizon, the market could enter a new era of growth.

But there are many challenges and potential pitfalls as well, from difficulties in navigating the complicated patchwork of laws and regulations across the U.S. to differences in how business is conducted. 

In this session, attendees will get the latest data and trends that define the size and scope of the cannabis industry, learn about the current and future business opportunities for packaging companies, gain an understanding of the unique challenges companies face entering the market, and hear how federal reform could unlock more possibilities.
