California Buyer’s Club to Unite California’s Cannabis Trade Associations

LOS ANGELES – The 2019 inaugural California Buyer’s Club [‘CBC’], featuring Cresco Labs and produced by Cure Designs this October 24th & 25th, brings together four regional California cannabis trade associations for two days of business and policy-oriented meetings. The four host associations include the United Cannabis Business Association (Los Angeles), Humboldt County Growers Alliance (Humboldt County), Long Beach Collective Association (Long Beach) and Santa Ana Cannabis Association (Santa Ana).

CBC hosts and attendees are playing a crucial role in the continued development and refinement of California’s cannabis policy. This event will provide these stakeholders the unique opportunity to discuss the state of policy on the local, regional and statewide levels while working to identify opportunities and solutions to advocate for the future of the licensed cannabis industry.


“Bringing together stakeholders from the licensed cannabis industry in Northern and Southern California is crucial to our future and the Buyer’s Club represents a critical opportunity to do just that by uniting licensed leaders to form partnerships and work together to chart the course of the regulated commercial cannabis industry,” said Ruben Honig, executive director of the UCBA. “By coming together in business and in policy we will help to ensure that licensed operators are able to advocate for the core issues, like enforcement and tax reform, that impact us and that will grow and shape the landscape of the developing cannabis industry.”

Registration for dispensary buyers and owners ONLY is still open for this invitation-only event.

The CBC will be driven by an app-based communication portal between attendees, allowing efficient meeting scheduling and sharing of relevant information.
