“The Emerald Conference is important because it provides a platform for scientific communication and collaboration. Open scientific dialogue is important for all fields, but especially an emerging field such as cannabis science. To overcome the black market paranoia and misinformation that has run rampant in this field until recent decades, scientists need to come together and share their findings with their peers in the scientific community. The Emerald Conference is integral to this process, as its high standards for peer-reviewed work and desire for open collaboration amongst participants sets it apart from the vast majority of cannabis conferences.” – David Dawson, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Via Innovations
