Cannabis & Coronavirus – A Pharmacist’s Perspective

https://www.canna-tech.co/cannatech/cannabis-coronavirus-a-pharmacists-perspective/


When I was at Pharmacy School at Sydney University, more than 20 years ago, we learned the pharmaceutical and clinical sciences ranging from the design, synthesis, formulation, dispensing and testing of drugs and the clinical and social aspects of pharmacy. In practical terms, we studied how pharmaceuticals interact, how to accurately measure and dispense medications, advise patients on effective protocols and adverse events, what to do and not to do when using specific medications.
We did not learn how to dispense medications in a pandemic.
It never occurred to the University to include this in the curriculum. Like the heroic doctors, nurses and caregivers at hospitals today, pharmacists too are on the front lines of this global pandemic. People need medicine, and ensuring the supply chain of critical meds at this time is just as important as washing hands and social distancing, maybe more so.
In my pharmacy in Israel, we have taken measures to keep our pharmacists as safe as possible including protective glass between the pharmacist and patients, gloves, masks and alcogel between patients, limiting the number of patients in the store at any time to 1, and other measures including pick-up services and delivery. We have doubled our stock of common medication and we have seen stockpiling of medication, alcogel and masks as common.
Over 60,000 patients in Israel receive medical cannabis through pharmacies and distributors. The current supply chain for cannabis is stable and we have even seen imported cannabis flowers from Canada, the US, and Africa. Hundreds of thousands of patients around the world rely on cannabis medicine to treat a range of conditions, including epilepsy, Parkinsons, cancer, PTSD, Crohn’s disease, autism, chronic pain and more. And most especially in these times, cannabis is used effectively to treat anxiety.
Research has shown that Cannabis can significantly reduce anxiety, depression, and stress.
• Low THC/high CBD cannabis can help with depression
• High THC/high CBD cannabis can help with stress
I am pleased to read that cannabis dispensaries are being classified as essential businesses in the U.S. (although it’s obvious to me, I am somewhat puzzled how cannabis was previously classified as “illegal” and is now “essential”).
In 2019, I completed the Israel Ministry of Health’s cannabis curriculum for pharmacists. Here too, medical cannabis is still available to patients at the pharmacies and we must ensure this continues throughout the lockdown.
This is a challenging time for the world, for our families and for the cannabis industry.
As a Pharmacist and a cannabis entrepreneur, I invite you to reach out to me with any questions you have on any medications including cannabis. I am available and happy to answer any questions you have.
Be careful – there is a lot of misinformation out there that is being shared, and I encourage you to check the source of all information before doing anything. Let’s allow the doctors, nurses, caregivers, and pharmacists to do their work. Keep physically healthy with how you eat and exercise, and keep mentally healthy by taking some positive steps.

Marijuana Increases Trade Show Registrations

http://www.cdsdisplays.com/blog/marijuana-trade-show/

Notice the headline reads “Marijuana Increases Trade Show Registrations” and not Marijuana Increases Trade Show Attendance. You can probably assume that attendance is up as well, but the premise of this article is how one company (CDS Displays) has seen a major increase in customers participating in trade shows in both Denver and Seattle.

Cannabis Expo

It is not a coincidence that after Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational use that CDS Displays noticed a three time increase in clients who were participating in trade shows located in Denver. When Washington State followed, the number of clients participating in Seattle based trade shows has also doubled.

In addition to the many shows that have re-located to Denver or Seattle there are now many very large trade shows that are specific to the cannabis and marijuana business. CDS has also serviced companies that are officially “in the business” including EnviroGrow who provides technology for growers and Sprig which is a THC infused soda that can only be sold in states where recreational marijuana use is legal.

Trade Show Alternatives: Get Your Product in Front of Customers Despite the Coronavirus.

Trade shows are a popular—and sometimes crucial—way for companies to get their products and services in front of prospective customers and connections. In 2020 the arrival of the coronavirus has meant that hundreds of industry events are postponed or indefinitely on hold. Many companies are now looking for new ways to promote their brands and products. What are your trade show alternatives?

The massive events that attract tens of thousands of people may return in the future. For now, a new set of principles guide how companies approach events. It’s all about social distancing, sanitation, and size limits. These are important to help attendees stay safe while they enjoy themselves.

Virtual Events Are Safe and Effective
One obvious solution to the problems posed by COVID-19 is not to get people together in person at all and instead to opt for virtual events. With a virtual event, there’s no risk of infection transmission and no need to limit the number of attendees.

The face-to-face interaction virtual events lack they make up for in myriad ways:
• Hosting a virtual event gives you the opportunity to reach a potentially greater audience. People can attend an event online no matter where they live, as long as they have internet access. The reduced cost of attendance can boost interest too.

• They’re great for networking. A well-designed virtual event still encourages the kind of camaraderie that fosters long-term relationships. Lively real-time online discussions can provide plenty of exposure to build your brand and generate new leads.

• The data power they hold is unlike anything you could do at an in-person event. Learn more about virtual event analytics here.

Small Events Pose Less Risk
The bigger your event, the bigger the risk attendees might unknowingly spread infection. That’s why, right now, smaller is better. And, if possible, sticking to a local guest list is preferable. Depending on your goals, you may even find that small events are a better option than setting up a booth in a convention hall surrounded by thousands of others.

Large industry events can be exciting places to launch new products, but they’re not always the best fit. When you want to really connect with your audience, a smaller venue may suit your purpose. Small events of 50 to 75 people offer more chances for one-on-one interactions. And the smaller the guest list, the more time you have to make each interaction a high-quality one.

Outdoor Exhibits Allow for Social Distancing
If you’re concerned a small event won’t have the impact you’re driving for—for example, at a product launch—a larger event with social distancing precautions may be possible. Need a large audience but don’t want to compromise on safety? One effective solution is to take your event outside. In these days of social distancing, holding an outdoor event can help you strike a balance between crowd size and safety. Outdoors, there are no ventilation issues, and there’s room to spare. This means attendees have all the space they need to keep their distance while waiting in line or checking out your exhibit.

A great way to showcase your product or hold demos outdoors is by pairing your event with a mobile exhibit—or more than one. Outdoor exhibits are often portable by design. This makes setup and teardown easier and ensures your exhibit is ready to go any time.

If your exhibit proves successful at a local level, why not take it to other areas in your state or even on the road across the country?

On the Road with Mobile Exhibits
Even before the coronavirus, many exhibitors were looking outside the box for trade show alternatives. Touring a mobile exhibit, for instance, can be a great way of getting engagement and exposure. You still get to meet people, but it’s without the intense competition and frantic atmosphere of a trade show.

In the times of COVID-19, a mobile exhibit is an even more attractive prospect because it’s built with portability in mind. At its simplest, a mobile exhibit might be a single person with a few dozen brochures and a table for product demos. A large company might build a mobile exhibit in a vehicle or container and have a permanent team of staff to run it. In terms of safety, a mobile exhibit can work when deployed outdoors, in a place that makes distancing possible.

Face-to-face interactions are best for making and strengthening relationships. But, while industry events are effective, they’re often predictable in terms of the people you see at them. Taking your show on the road changes things up. Those in-person interactions can now happen anywhere, even in unexpected places. With a well-designed mobile exhibit, you can perform product demonstrations and tell your brand’s story to people across the country.

Permanent Installations Provide Long-Term Brand Messaging
A successful exhibit isn’t necessarily one that’s aggressively marketing your brand. Sometimes, it’s an installation that promotes your organization in a way that’s a little more subtle and just as effective. Permanent installations fit this bill. Their “always-on” messaging invites viewers to engage with your brand on a regular basis, rather than just at an event.

Permanent environments and installations work well at company HQs and in other corporate environments. These are the places where your image and your brand story are crafted. The most successful organizations are often ones that reflect their brand’s image everywhere—not just to the buying public but in the places employees work and where clients, partners, and prospects visit. Corporate locations such as customer lobbies, product demo rooms, and executive briefing centers are prime areas where permanent installations can work well.

Intimate Events Can Be Just as Effective as Large Trade Shows
Trade shows have long been popular for exhibitors—for product launches, brand building, and networking. But now is the time to think outside the box. Small events, outdoor events, virtual events, and permanent environments can all meet your marketing needs just as well, if you approach them in the right way. Be thoughtful about pairing your objectives with the kind of event you hold, and you’ll find that these trade show alternatives can help your organization meet its goals.
