#CanndoraConnect Panel Highlights

International Business
A global revolution is underway and the psychedelics market is full of opportunities for Canadian companies operating on a national and international level. The panelists discussed working on international teams in Canada, Jamaica and Netherlands and the differences between each region’s industries.

Psilocybin and Women: What does Science Say?
Due to Psychedelics being extremely regulated over the past several decades research has been minimal until recently. A small body of research means that gender differences have largely been left out of psychedelics studies, as we know male and female bodies are drastically different and the lack of research & awareness of those key differentiators can cause major systemic issues in how we address women’s health such as more women dying of heart attacks and ADHD being underdiagnosed in girls. The panelists were hopeful that the psychedelic industry will delve into gender specific research as the industry continues to develop, especially since women are playing such a large part in it’s creation.

The event was made possible with support from presenting partners, Red Light Holland and WAKE
