From recreational products to medical applications, the Cannabis industry is becoming a broad and thriving industry with tremendous potential for growth. Staying competitive will require innovation, and the innovations of every serious Cannabis entrepreneur can and should be protected to maximize their competitive advantage.
Obtaining meaningful intellectual property protection requires an understanding of the range of available intellectual property rights, and strategic insight on how to use those rights effectively. There is no better time to get started.

Select lawyers from Smart and Biggar, McMillan LLP, Oyen Wiggs GM LLP, Gowling WLG and Lupino Law will present aspects of patents, trademarks, domain names, plant breeders' rights, copyright and trade secret as applied to marijuana products and services, from software to edibles.
