Ed Rosenthal is a leading cannabis horticulture authority, author, educator, social activist and legalization pioneer.
As one of the co-founders of High Times Magazine, Ed writes the much loved and long-running cannabis column, “Ask Ed.” The column continues to be published internationally.
“Ed Rosenthal’s Marijuana Grower’s Handbook”, has become the definitive marijuana cultivation resource, inspiring millions to learn the best marijuana cultivation techniques. His book is the official course book of Oaksterdam University, and is still the only cannabis horticulture title ever to be reviewed by the New York Times.
Ed is the founder of many successful socially responsible cannabis organizations, including; Quick Trading Publishing, focused on continuously researching and publishing the most accurate, up to date cannabis education, Quantum 9, a marijuana consulting and technology company, Green Aid: The Medical Marijuana Legal Defense and Education Fund, a 501(c)(3), the International Cannabis Business Conference, the Wonders of Cannabis Festival and The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum in Amsterdam.
As an internationally known cannabis activist and advocate, Ed views marijuana law as a crucial social issue: one that hit him personally. In 1999, Ed was appointed, “Officer of the City of Oakland”, directed to cultivate cannabis for patients. Three years later, the federal government shut down his city supported facility. Ed was arrested, and put on trial twice for marijuana cultivation in federal court. Ed’s highly publicized trials shifted public opinion in favor of state medical marijuana laws, highlighting for many the fact that marijuana laws have become more harmful to society than the behavior they were intended to regulate.

To attract the best, brightest and most motivated entrepreneurs and investors for the next innovative American industry, Steve and his staff operate the ArcView Angel Investor Network. Steve believes cannabis is medicine and that it should be used to further personal wellness and not be used as an intoxicant.
As an accomplished speaker, Steve DeAngelo can be found at events and conferences around the world inspiring others through his work. His unique sense of style, his commitment to his community and his passion for cannabis make him both a role model and a pop cultural icon.

If we look at the USA, it’s not surprising that the majority of cannabis events will be happening in the state of California. Since the 1. of January it has become the sixth state to allow licensed shops to sell cannabis to anyone with an ID and according to Business Insider, the market is expected to hit $3.7 billion in 2018 alone, and that number will increase to over $5 billion in 2019.
The already established cannabis household state of Colorado will also be hosting several important events, as well as the states of Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington, New York, Louisiana and Florida.
Join us in beautiful Boston for one of the industry’s most important events of the year.

The connections you’ll make, coupled with the insights and actionable ideas you’ll develop, will positively impact your future in the industry.
Oregon’s enthusiasm and devotion for Cannabis has spawned an endless amount of business opportunities and with both medical and recreational sales legal, a focused B2B Show was needed.
