VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emerging leader in infused cannabis beverages, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Chief Commercialization Officer Emma Andrews, RHN, NPDP, will be featured at this week’s International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC), representing BevCanna’s insights into the infused beverage category. The conference is being held on September 15-16, 2019 at Vancouver’s Westin Bayshore Hotel.
Ms. Andrews will bring her expertise in developing cannabis-infused products and launching products in regulated industries to the panel Upcoming Regulatory Model: Edibles, Topicals and Extracts. Ms. Andrew’s co-panelists will include Niel Marotta, President and CEO, Director and Founder of Indiva; Brandon Wright, CEO of Dynaleo; and Bert Hick, President of Rising Tide Consultants. The panel will be moderated by Kirk Tousaw, of Tousaw Law Corporation.
“BevCanna has developed an opportunity-based perspective on the cannabis regulation discussion,” said Ms. Andrews. “Compliance is at the forefront of everyone’s mind as the legalization of infused beverages fast approaches in Canada, however there is still room for creativity and innovation. Sharing our unique expertise and insights, gained through years of experience developing market-leading products and navigating highly-regulated industries, helps advance the nascent cannabis-infused edibles and beverages category.”
BevCanna will also provide conference participants with samples of its alkaline spring water, sourced from their on-site aquifer in Bridesville, BC. The same premium spring water will soon be infused with cannabinoids, once regulations come into effect.
