3. Experience the CBD immersion tour
There’s no question that this is CBD’s breakout year. Consumer demand is growing fast, but complex regulations can make it a minefield for operators. MUFSO offers multiple ways for restaurant operators to understand this fast-growing market.
First, attendees can get a behind-the-scenes look at all things CBD on a tour of four local businesses making or selling CBD products. Presented by Datassential, the “From Plant to Table” tour, which will be held Oct. 14, will kick off with lunch at a Denver favorite, Hank’s Texas Barbecue, featuring a custom CBD-infused menu and a presentation by CBD experts from Datassential. Next up: Seed & Smith, a state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility, will host a backstage tour to show the cannabis process from beginning to end. Tour participants will then visit Native Roots, a CBD wellness dispensary to learn about the breadth of CBD uses. The tour wraps up at Choice Market, a Denver-based c-store concept that offers groceries, prepared foods and a variety of packaged CBD edibles and beverages. Choice Market CEO Mike Fogarty will join for a Q&A session on the CBD market. Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 50 people.
The following day, MUFSO attendees can also hear from legal experts on how operators can navigate the ever-evolving regulations around CBD and cannabis-derived products.
