Lift Cannabis Expo 2017

Mike North from Smokers Guide Canada visits the Lift expo in Toronto to see whats new, we chat with Todd Shapiro on Cannabis in Canada. and we squish some bud with Remo the Urban Grower.

For conference venues in Toronto it doesn’t get bigger than the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. For cannabis conferences in Canada, it doesn’t get bigger than LIFT. The Lift Cannabis Expo & Conference sprawled across the entire lower floor of the conference centre packed with booths showing brands spanning the range of cannabis products and services. 

The three day event began with an ‘Industry day’; a great chance to take in the exhibition before the crowds of attendees arrived for the weekend. After a season of smaller upstart conferences, this was the big one. Presenters and exhibitors abounding. Cannabis industry celebrities like the Sisters of the Valley from California and Remo from Vancouver filled the room with a palpable energy (and aroma).

One feature is so often missing at these kinds of events - a safe and designated area for patients and enthusiasts to medicate and consume cannabis! Lift had this covered. The well appointed in house vape lounge seemed to evolve over the course of the weekend, though maintaining it’s apple-store gloss the entire time. The room soon filled with bongs and rigs amongst a sea of small electronic vaporizers tethered to the tables. Definitely a unique experience to feel like you were medicating in an apple store.
