Cannaval is designed to educate and empower the people of the US Virgin Islands while presenting the best in class products and services to build the infrastructure of the Cannabis, Hemp, and CBD industries.
Cannaval provides support, educational sessions, media, and the ideal networking opportunity for people looking to create businesses and brands looking to expand to the Caribbean.
On January 21, 2019 the US Virgin Islands passed new medical marijuana legislation, Medical Cannabis Patient Care Act (MCPCA), making the US territory the latest Caribbean jurisdiction to open its doors to cannabis businesses and new cannabis tourism opportunities. Cannaval is proud to present leaders and expert educators across multiple verticals of cannabis and hemp. Attendees will learn from industry professionals within four focused categories offering multiple panels and presentations.
