Thousands of exhibitors and cannabis connoisseurs are flocking to MJBizCon, the semi-annual professional marijuana trade show celebrating its fifth year.
Cannabis-focused lifestyle brand Weekend Unlimited Inc (CSE:YOLO) is sending recently-acquired Canna Candys on its behalf to showcase its presence in the edibles space.
The candy company has partnered with VESIorb, a company developing a delivery system for the better absorption of CBD.
"Having years of experience pioneering cannabis formulation with candymaking craftsmanship, our partnership with VESIsorb® will technologically set us apart from any other edibles company," said Canna Candys CEO Paul Chu in the company’s press release.
Chu added that the company is looking for distributors and retailers to expand its offerings.
The CBD-infused candies are distributed throughout 380 retail stores in Southern California.
Shares of Weekend Unlimited were up nearly 6% to C$0.18 in Thursday morning trading.
The MJBizCon will take place from November 14 to 16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
