IC3 The Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (West)
The third installment of the Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (IC3) will take place in the epicenter of this movement, Los Angeles. Following on the heels of two successful conferences in Silicon Valley and Miami, IC3 Los Angeles will gather the industry’s top experts to decipher the early signs of cannabis legalization in California and what it portends for the industry at large. Public opinion in favor of legalization has reached record levels, and there is a growing movement within state legislatures and the U.S. Congress to end Prohibition. IMN is excited to bring this one-of-kind forum aimed at sophisticated investors seeking alternative asset classes and portfolio diversification back to California once again. This event was created specifically with the needs of the institutional and accredited investor in mind.

SoCalBio Networking Forum – Medicinal Cannabis
On April 17, 2018 an FDA advisory panel unanimously recommended approval of an epilepsy medication called Epidiolex which is developed by the British company GW Pharmaceuticals using an ingredient found in marijuana. This ingredient is called Cannabidiol (CBD) which performs its therapeutic function without getting people high. If the FDA follows the recommendation, as is expected, Epidiolex would be the first such cannabis-derived prescription medicine available in the United States. This SoCalBio Networking Forum is designed to help people learn about the future prospects of medical cannabinoids and whether Epidiolex’s approval may open the floodgates for medical cannabis research, development, and funding. Speakers include: Jessica Rousset, the COO of Cure Pharmaceuticals and Brian Murphy, the CEO, Nemus Bioscience Inc. Others will be announced the day befor the event.
