How’s the weather?
Located on the southern coast of South Africa, Cape Town’s early-summer climate is at its best in November. The mild temperatures and clear skies south of the equator are a perfect setting for CannaTech’s spectacular indoor/outdoor venue. The nights can be breezy, and the venue is on the seaside, so bring a shawl or a light jacket.
Are cannabis products and cannabis consumption permitted at CannaTech?
The distribution or sale of any products that do not conform to local regulation is strictly prohibited at CannaTech, including in the exhibit hall, conference session rooms, or any other space where conference events are conducted. Non-compliance with local law is the sole responsibility of the individual. Any individual who possesses, distributes or consumes any cannabis-based products is solely responsible for his/her compliance with local and state regulations.
This being said, currently, South Africa’s cannabis regulation is shifting. As the conference draws nearer, we will provide an update on the legal status of cannabis in order to clarify what products may be given, sold, or consumed at CannaTech Cape Town.
