About Us ––

The Real Cannabis Entrepreneur Conference was created by us :) Husband and wife team, after spending years traveling the country, attending cannabis events, cannabis conferences, conventions and seminars to find the specifichow-to information on breaking into the industry.

After many years and dollars spent we realized most conferences were riddled with state of the industry, regulatory and legislative conversations, which although important fails to deliver the down and dirty blueprint that we were looking for to get started NOW!

We're serial entrepreneurs and own an event planning company so we understands the value of investing in mentors, but after realizing most cannabis conferences only covered surface level topics, we decided to CREATE THE SOLUTION to our own problem.

Our mission is to help level the playing field and the empower the underserved by providing information and guidance needed to tap into one of the biggest and fasting growing industries on the planet.
