Chinese Look To Sell Directly To Cannabis Companies

The MJ Biz conference in Las Vegas, Nevada last week was the biggest yet. With over 700 vendors and thousands of attendees, it’s the largest cannabis conference in the country. The notable change this year was the heavy presence of Chinese manufacturers looking to cut out the American middlemen.

Much of the cannabis industry equipment is made in China, but there are many American companies that have made it their business to resell this hardware. It can certainly be easier for many American cannabis companies to work with a fellow American company and let them do the legwork of traveling to China to source the equipment. This year, it seems the Chinese are making the effort to go directly to the cannabis industry customers.

In addition to the large Chinese presence, there were quite a few Europeans and especially Germans walking the conference floor.
