Last week we found ourselves in Seattle again for the NCIA Cultivation Management Symposium.
Being a member of NCIA, we’ve experienced firsthand how valuable the relationships that are formed and conversations that are stirred up at their shows are to this rapidly growing industry. The Cultivation Management Symposium was no different!
We attended many of the offered education sessions and had amazing conversations that led us to one key takeaway: energy usage in the cannabis industry is paramount.
Externally, to those outside the industry, the public perception that cannabis is an energy hog is increasing. Internally, as an industry, there is a cry for technology to lower energy bills for growers and alleviate the demand on the grid.
Stephen Keen, our VP of Research and Development, joined CannaAdvisor’s Jay Czarkowski to give a keynote presentation on the advances in technology being created, by Surna and other companies, to specifically address issues we’re all experiencing, especially energy. You can review his presentation here.
A big thank you to NCIA for hosting such a great event and being an advocate for the industry.
You can catch us May 19-21 in Chicago for Marijuana Business Daily’s Spring Conference.
