THC Fair has plenty for pot consumers and businesses
From the new medicinal user to the experienced cannabis grower, there's likely to be something for everyone seeking the cutting edge of the Rogue Valley's newest crop at the The Hemp and Cannabis Fair, scheduled this weekend at the Expo in Central Point.
The fourth annual hemp and cannabis fair will feature experts in the cannabis industry offering insights on everything from the latest state requirements for licensed growers of marijuana to the health benefits of hemp-derived CBD extract.
For those interested in learning how to use cannabis as medicine, Tori Wright with 2 Dye 4 Creations will hold an intensive two-hour “Healing Effects of Medical Cannabis” workshop at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Expo. Wright will lay out basics such as the various forms of medicinal cannabis, as well as dosing to get the most from the medicine. A second program is set for 1 p.m. Sunday.
“Remember, medicine should make you functional — not fun,” Wright says in the program manual. “If it’s making you fun, that is recreational!”
Wright’s program, included in the $7 admission, is one of more than a half-dozen talks running through the weekend. Admission also includes access to more than five dozen exhibitors — from marijuana trimming services to more traditional alarm companies and soil providers. .
The THC Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, and 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb 10. The bulk of the programs running throughout the weekend are geared toward growers and dispensaries.
For instance, ‘Pioneer’ Pete Gendron will provide a state of the cannabis industry in Oregon and around the country with a talk called “Pot Policy & Politics: What Weed All Like to Know.” A Q&A will follow.
John Manlove with Apex Trading will help dispensaries pick a software vendor to help with overstock and falling prices with his presentation, “Standardized Inventory, Order and Client Management.”
