The first Canna Tech Israel event is around the corner and Israeli startups targeting the global cannabis medical market are hoping to woo investors.

Cannabis tech companies including EdenShield, Syqe Medical, BreedIT, flux, Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, and LaraPharm will show off their innovative breeding techniques and inventive medical marijuana devices.

“The market opportunities and potential is wide. Some are predicting cannabis in the US to be the next gold rush. This event is meant as a springboard to understand just how wide and deep Israeli innovation can be applied to an exciting new world of opportunities in the US and its changing legislation,” Karin Kloosterman, CEO of flux and organizer of the Canna Tech event, tells ISRAEL21c.

“Charlotte’s Web” Dr. Alan Shackelford, who recently announced that he was moving from the US to Israel, is the guest speaker at the February 5 event in Tel Aviv.
