Cannabis Events Canceled Due To Coronavirus- When Will They Return?

Are you the one who enjoyed the annual in-person cannabis events and gatherings?

Well, as the novel coronavirus caught hold of the world, governments and health officials issued guidelines and policies to slow the COVID-19 transmission. A few of these recommendations include washing hands often for about 20 seconds, maintaining 6 feet from other individuals, and no social gathering in large groups! Infact, few events were dubbed “super spreader events, but what about cannabis users?

Since the legalization of cannabis, users are more active to be part of these events. Their access to medical cannabis via 420 evaluations is possible, so they are eager to learn more about it. However, several cannabis events have been canceled to avoid any social gathering. One of the events- SXSW (not actually a cannabis event but a cannabis-friendly event) gave rise to a domino effect as they said they would cancel or postpone their event. Plus, the gatherings and events planned on 4/20 (due to the significance of the date) quickly made amendments.

The Colorado NOCO Hemp Expo is scheduled for August 6-8, which was supposed to take place on March 26-28. However, this may be up in the air as new and new hot spots of active coronavirus cases are emerging daily.

So if you were planning on attending a cannabis event, check below for cancellations, and postponement.

Even if these events and conferences were canceled, the good news is that it was all before the 4/20 holiday, as it provided an opportunity to create pivots towards various virtual events. For now, all we can do is visit the website and see if they canceled the event or postponed it. 

When In-person Cannabis Events Will Take Place Again?

The logical answer says that once it will be safer for us to step outside of our homes without fear- only then can we see these events happening. Whether it is an expo, conference, festival, or a concert- the exact decision is yet pending. 

The CDC centers (Centres of Disease Control) has provided “Interim Guidance” to all the organizations who are wishing to have mass gatherings. However, the correct approach should be not to have them at all.

As the pandemic is still unfolding its impacts in many parts of the country, there is only little anyone can do. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself from being a victim of this coronavirus pandemic and follow all the recommendations offered by the CDS to reduce exposure. Once you, I, and all are protected and are probably on the verge of eliminating coronavirus, we can definitely think of an event or a conference (regarding coronavirus).

The Bottom Line

These Cannabis Conferences and gatherings have different meanings for all. Normal cannabis consumers see it as an opportunity to learn about their stuff or maybe something upcoming. Whereas, for some, it is an opportunity to expand their cannabis business. They meet fellow minded people to discuss the revenue-earning prospects in the cannabis industry. Perhaps, mostly the attendees are ordinary people who are simply passionate about cannabis. Nevertheless, these events are a great platform to witness the latest developments and competing suppliers of cannabis under one roof. 

If you have not visited any cannabis conference yet, add one of them to your 2020 calendar. It doesn’t matter where you live- at least one of the events would be near to you.
