Cannabis products can only be bought and sold at a licensed Cannabis retailer at their place of business.  There is no legislation that would allow a retailer to sell outside of their licensed location, and no legislation that allows for the sale of cannabis on the Edmonton EXPO Centre grounds.  As a result, any part of the cannabis plant, or any product containing THC or CBD, cannot be sampled or sold at the Edmonton EXPO Centre.

Outside of Cannabis events, Exhibitors may only provide “Tombstone” information to guests. Tombstone information includes a company’s name, logo, location and store hours. Outside of a Cannabis event, Exhibitors may not promote strains, brands, prices or other elements related to cannabis.
