Cannabis World Congress & Business Expositions (CWCBExpo) have officially partnered with The Marijuana Show, an Amazon TV Series, dubbed the “Shark Tank” of cannabis, with over 250 million reach, to offer innovative canna-businesses the opportunity to pitch their new ideas.


Pitching opportunities to The Marijuana Show judges will now be available at the CWCBExpo coast-to-coast market leading events in New York, Los Angeles and Boston. The CWCBExpos provide the latest information, education, and products for medical and recreational marijuana, CBD, industrial hemp and more.

“By partnering with The Marijuana Show, exhibitors of CWCBExpo will gain access to funding for new and expanding businesses. This gives CWCBExpo another prime opportunity to help move the industry forward and provide a springboard to success for innovators and entrepreneurs who are seeking mentorships and capital,” said Scott Giannotti, Managing Director, CWCBExpo.


The first set of auditions will take place at CWCBExpo NY on June 15th at the Javits Center. Select ganjaprenuers will have 2 to 10 minutes to pitch their ideas to the show’s judges in the Exhibitor Showcase Theater sponsored by Folium Biosciences. Those pitching will vie for a chance to be on The Marijuana Show, garner top notch industry mentors and a piece of the $20 million “High-Finance” fund in addition to legal and marketing guidance.

“We are very excited to partner with the CWCBExpo in order to find the next big marijuana millionaires.  Their events bring together highly motivated canna-businesses and that’s exactly who we are searching for,” said The Marijuana Show’s Producer and Director, Wendy Robbins. “With so much to gain in this industry, we are proud to assist hopeful canna-business owners to take their ideas to the next level though our TV show and our on-demand live streaming education program, Bud Camp,” added Robbins.

The CWCBExpo NY, June 14-16, taking place under one roof in the financial and media capital of the world, will also host an expanded exhibit floor (June 15-16) with suppliers in the industry showcasing cutting-edge products and services to those in the business, entrepreneurs looking to enter the market, medical professionals, dispensary owners, retailers, investors, and providers of professional services.

The educational programming includes Add-on Workshops (June 14 and June 17) presenting information on becoming medical marijuana provider, opening a business, investing in cannabis, making hemp great again, and the art of the cannabis sommelier.

The CWCBExpo conference program will include more than 70 sessions and over 100 expert speakers covering everything from seed to sale including cultivation, processing/extraction, sales, ancillary business, advocacy legislation and more. To register for CWCBExpo NY, go to www.cwcbexpo.com.
