Cannabis business bootcamp aims to boost N.J.’s 308 legal weed permit holders. – NJ.com

NJ Cannabis Insider Live has designed a new learning experience for businesses operating in the legal weed market.

Presented by Weedmaps, the all-day, multi-track conference will put an emphasis on serving New Jersey’s conditional license holders, small-businesses and future operators. (There are currently a total of 308 conditional licenses and that number is expected to grow later this year.)

The Sept. 15 bootcamp, which will run from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Princeton Conference Center, will help small businesses working toward getting full approval by the state to open, as well as future businesses serious about getting into the cannabis space.

Special discount pricing for half-day and full-day tickets, plus perks are available for conditional license holders. Register here.

For a limited number of attendees, this ticket offer includes:

The Grassroots membership includes the association’s weekly newsletter emailed to your inbox with regulatory and NJCBA updates, plus access to educational webinars and member discounts.
