On September 11th, 2019, investors, entrepreneurs, and branding experts will gather to dissect the economics of cannabis business brands at The Green Market Summit in Los Angeles, California. Following a sold-out event in Chicago, The Green Market Summit will bring its business acumen to the world of cannabis branding and provide exclusive industry information on topics such as the celebrity effect on cannabis, how to manage brand perception for public companies, and the world of luxury cannabis.

“Our conferences are unique within the glut of cannabis events in that we zero in on one topic and then dig in with both hands,” said Green Market Media Co-founder and CEO, Debra Borchardt. “This makes it more valuable for our attendees because they walk away with real value-added information. You can’t get this type of nitty-gritty detail from a general topic cannabis conference.”

The event will include an in-depth examination about how to develop an authentic cannabis brand, led by legendary musician Melissa Etheridge and involve Kevin Bell, the COO of Tyson Ranch founded by boxer Mike Tyson, and Courtney Zalewski from Lowell Herb, which has developed a strong outreach to influencers in cannabis.

The summit will also feature a panel discussion about celebrity athletes, cannabis brands, and their relationship with CBD. As the CBD market continues to grow at an explosive rate, more athletes than ever are turning to CBD to help relieve pain, turning many into passionate advocates for cannabis.

The panel will include former NFL offensive lineman and founder of the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, Kyle Turney; former professional ice hockey left winger and  Athletes for CARE co-founder, Riley Cote; NCAA national champion and Mendi founder, Rachel Rapinoe; former NFL player and Athletes for CARE Ambassador, Nate Jackson; and Athletes for CARE Executive Director Anna Valent.

The keynote event will star accomplished CNBC reporter Jane Wells, who will go one-on-one with a market leader in the edible cannabis market, Jake Heimark.

With more than three decades experience, Wells is a journalism veteran who has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including a 1992 Peabody Award and a DuPont Award for live coverage of the Rodney King Trial and a Los Angeles Emmy Award for her investigative reporting.

Heimark is the co-founder and CEO of PLUS Products, a publicly-traded California-based branded products cannabis company. During his tenure as CEO, Heimark has helped steer the company to become the #1 and #2 best-selling branded cannabis products across all BDS Analytics tracked markets, building a core following in the most influential market in the world, with over 1 million units of its signature PLUS gummies sold last year alone.

“PLUS is excited to partner with the Green Market Report for their Summit in LA to continue to educate individuals on the exciting opportunities within our emerging industry,” said Heimark. “We look forward to sharing our story and the progress we have made towards building an international cannabis brand.”

Attendance to the Green Market Summit is limited and is expected to sell out quickly. To get your ticket, please visit https://www.greenmarketsummit.com/tickets/.
