Our sales team attended the Expoweed México show this month. This is the largest cannabis industry event in Mexico. The show emphasizes the importance of education and the responsible commercial exchange of medicine between providers and consumers. The trade show serves as a wealth of information for anyone interested in learning more about the growing cannabis industry. The event originated in Chile, where it has been celebrated for 5 years, and has now added a show in Mexico which involves international lecturers and workshops to provide knowledge of the medicinal, industrial and ancient uses of cannabis.
We applaud the charitable organizations for their efforts to educate the public regarding the many medicinal benefits of cannabis. Fundacion Por Grace is a foundation in Mexico (in collaboration with University of Toronto) which helps children with diseases in which cannabis has found to be a suitable treatment option. Another charity, Fundacion Daya, is a Chilean nonprofit organization which fights for cannabis rights and is involved in research and treatment using cannabis. For more information about either organization, please visit their respective websites.
Expoweed was nearly twice as big as last year, with major changes having taken place regarding regulations of cannabis in Mexico. We saw many of our business partners also exhibiting at the show. Many vendors were selling grow equipment, seeds, and nutrients, while others had booths for the purpose of education and charities. Some even traveled from as far as the Netherlands to attend this event.
At the event, we had the opportunity to present two important lectures. The first lecture discussed proper methods for safe and effective cannabis extraction in a laboratory setting. We highlighted the many different forms of consumable extractions, along with the necessary processing equipment that goes into producing each type of consumable end product. The second lecture featured our sales team, along with three of our long-time business partners, and highlighted the extraction process in greater detail. Many attendees were impressed to learn how much variety there is on the market, but were even more intrigued by the science behind each process. It was a great learning opportunity for all who attended.
Another lecture about the future of extraction industry was presented at the show. This discussion highlighted the various economic, social, and medical impacts the cannabis industry has had on regions of the world which introduce cannabis legally into their economy. There is still huge research do be done regarding important factors such as bio-availability to continue growing and harvesting cannabis and hemp. Currently, there is research in Chile and Israel being done on these subjects, as well as the value of cannabis as a viable treatment option for a broad range of ailments.
It’s clear that the cannabis industry is rapidly changing in Mexico. AI Vacuum will continue to support the growth of the cannabis industry by providing excellent products, service, and support to all of our customers. We are able to provide these services in many languages, including Spanish!
We would like to thank all of our business partners and friends for making Expoweed a successful and productive trade show. We look forward to the positive changes being made in Mexico, and we hope to see more of our #AiFam at future trade shows.
