Which cannabis and psychedelic events are you headed to in the 2021 season?
It’s nearly time to put 2020 behind us and jump into the 2021 conference season. Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis trade show veteran waiting to get back to the expo floor or looking to attend a hemp convention or psychedelics conference for the first time, you’ve found the best list of psychedelic, cannabis, cbd and hemp trade shows.
What a year we’re putting behind us. Going from attending some of our favorite cannabis conventions to watching from quarantine as the majority of events were canceled or smartly shifted to a digital format was a sight to see. We love making connections and were really looking forward to attending the classics, like the MJBiz series, NCIA and the Benzinga Cannabis Capital conferences, plus meeting the new players at a few psychedelics trade shows, but in many ways this year off has been really beneficial. It’s given us the chance to reflect on the work we do in public relations, marketing and search engine optimization (SEO), the ways we give back (like our monthly mixer) and the amazing team we have that makes our culture and the work we do so phenomenal. The coronavirus has given all cannabis, hemp and CBD businesses the chance to step back and prepare to grow even stronger in 2021, and we know conferences are doing the same.
Out of necessity the virtual conference grew to be one of the lifesavers of 2020, and when the world moves beyond COVID-19 we expect to see digital networking continue into 2021 and beyond. As an all remote team, we understand the importance of location neutral events. Yet, we really can’t wait until it’s time to put on our most comfortable shoes and walk those miles of expo floors. So while you envision with us about the next show to attend, check out our list of virtual and in person events to aid in your future planning.
A quick note regarding COVID-19 – Please be sure to check out the official event websites for the most up-to-date information.

Creating the ultimate cannabis conference & psychedelics trade show guide
Before we jump into the list, you may ask yourself, how did this become the best, most comprehensive list of conventions? Don’t worry, we get asked this a lot and we’re happy to share our methodology. We love cannabis networking and we love focusing on what we love. Simply put, we care so much about promoting the cannabis industry, which we helped to create through our advocacy efforts, that we dove deep into research to try and find every possible cannabis event out there. Well to be clear, we don’t include one-off events like stand alone networking events, the CBD events that your local yoga studio hosts or quick panels more for educational purposes. Our research focus has been to find any and all cannabis conferences, CBD trade shows and the newest sibling industry, psychedelics conventions, from your local regional events, to country specific and beyond around the globe.
The goal of this complete list of psychedelic, cannabis, CBD and hemp conferences, conventions, trade shows, expos and any other name they may go by is to ensure connections across the industry are made. If the event has booth space or an expo floor, in person or digital, you can be sure we’ve included it on the list.
We do our best to update the list every month, as it seems like a new conference sprouts up as easily as the cannabis plant itself, so if you see an event you’re hosting is missing please reach out to email@example.com and let us know. If we can be helpful in your conference-going experience whether it’s providing tips on attending shows, marketing yourself to be on the right panel or letting the media know about your event, do reach out to us or check out our conference resource page here.
