The San Diego Cannabis Farmers Market, known locally for their special brand of unique and innovative cannabis events, will be hosting the San Diego Cannabis and Hemp job Fair and Business Mixer at the Hilton in Mission Valley from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 5.
The free event, which will be the first of its kind since California voters legalized cannabis in 2016 by passing Prop 64, will feature raffle giveaways, product demos, and an open door into the rapidly growing legal marijuana market.
For individuals who have been considering a start in the cannabis industry or are just looking to make a transition, the event will feature more than thirty businesses representing all aspects of the marijuana pipeline from seed to sale.
In addition to the numerous cannabis companies that will be present at the fair, a steady lineup of informational and educational speakers is scheduled for the entire afternoon including Candid Chronicle CEO and entrepreneur Chris Williams and Nug Life Radio Show host Medicinal Mike Boris.
