Organic Grower Summit Announces 2018 CannaBus Tour

Wednesday, December 12, 8 am – 12 pm
Limited to 80 participants
(August 21, 2018) Monterey, CA – A new addition to the schedule has been finalized for the 2018 Organic Grower Summit (OGS) in Monterey, California. OGS is excited to announce the 2018 CannaBus Tour, created in collaboration with the Monterey County Cannabis Industry Association (MCCIA), on Wednesday, December 12, 2018.
2018 OGS CannaBus Tour is an exclusive opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at the Monterey County cannabis industry. This limited tour includes visits to a state-of-the-art, indoor cannabis growing operation and Indus, a vertically integrated cannabis extraction and manufacturing facility.
With the growing, production and consumption of cannabis now legal in California, Monterey County is poised to be a leader in the growing and manufacturing of cannabis and cannabis related products. And as California moves to regulating organic growing of cannabis by 2021, OGS wants to be at the forefront of providing attendees with information and an educational overview of this burgeoning industry.  
"The 2018 OGS CannaBus Tour is an opportunity to connect organic growers and allied service providers with all aspects of the cannabis industry. This is a unique opportunity to give OGS attendees a platform to learn about the future of the cannabis industry,” says MCCIA's Executive Director John Arriaga.
