This panel will discuss the complexities of the Swiss regulatory environment regarding medical and recreational cannabis, compare the current developments with what is happening in the EU and provide an outlook into the future.
Switzerland and many countries in the EU are in a unique position to influence the direction of the global cannabis industry for future generations. However, investment enthusiasm must be tempered by calculated planning and awareness of the inherent risks in the public and private sectors of this rapidly evolving market. Emerging and maturing market opportunities continue to arise such as the advent of the “Dutch Weed Experiment” of 2020, “CBD lite” in Switzerland, increasing medical cannabis cultivation and processing, global importing and exporting coupled with rising demand, hemp, and the need for the ancillary businesses and strategic investment services and business planning. It’s crucial that investors use careful discernment to strategically place capital into the companies that are best positioned to become global leaders and yield successful exits and returns. In this session, Nic Easley, CEO of 3C Consulting and Managing Director of Multiverse Capital, will give entrepreneurs and investors invaluable global insights from well over a decade of legal cannabis operational and investment experiences. Nic will discuss the real truths from the trenches that will illuminate the pitfalls of the ever-changing realms of international laws, compliance, and regulations. Learn from the success and failures of the North American markets and other countries for how to determine the best current and future global cannabis investment and business development opportunities.
