As we wrap up the ending of a fantastic year, we’re already anticipating everything 2023 has in store. Next year, stay tuned for all the new and exciting (and dare we say, incredibly delicious!) cannabis products Minerva is cooking up for cannabis consumers.

Besides our new microdosed cannabis edibles that are coming to shelves soon, next year there are many upcoming cannabis events in California. This blog highlights some exciting happenings that our team, as well as the entire cannabis community, are looking forward to!


2023 Cannabis & Hemp Events in California

Looking for the next cannabis or hemp event to attend in California? Check out this list of industry events and conventions that you won’t want to miss:

The Emerald Conference is the first and longest-running interdisciplinary cannabis science event in the nation. The conference’s forums discuss new discoveries in areas of cultivation, production, and quality assurance.

When it comes to cannabis leaders in analytical testing, extraction or cultivation science, formulations, research & development, or even pre-clinical research – the conference provides innovative new ideas and strategies to this growing industry.

San Diego will be hosting the Emerald Cup’s 9th year on March 1-3.


This cannabis trade show is a licensed, industry-only, and highly-curated event that happens in multiple locations throughout the country (and even in Toronto!)

Every year, Hall of Flowers comes to Santa Rosa, California, to provide a show that facilitates the networking of commerce and retailers to brands and farmers within the state.

In 2023, the Hall of Flowers event in Santa Rosa will take place on May 3-4, with a later HOF event happening in Palm Springs towards quarter four of the same year. 


The Emerald Cup annually honors farmers and growers all throughout California while hosting the competition for the best cannabis flower and products of the year.

Categories for this competition include Best Flower (categorized by sungrown, mixed light, or indoor) – as well as categories like Best Solventless Concentrate, Best Flower Pre-rolls, Best Edibles, Most Innovative Product, and much more!

On March 24-26, 2023, the Emerald Cup Competition will hold its awards ceremony, where the community gathers to announce and celebrate the winners of each category for the year! 


As a B2B convention, CannaCon is dedicated to connecting all cannabis businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and community partners in order to showcase the latest and most innovative technology, products, and services.

As one of the nation’s leading B2B trade shows for the cannabis industry, this convention has events located throughout other legal states in the country, yet kicks off each year in beautiful Long Beach, California on August 4-5, 2023. 


The Cannabis Drinks Expo is a promising annual event that connects the industry with cannabis beverages and edibles brands.

Organized by the Beverage Trade Network, this event marks the biggest global gathering of the thriving cannabis beverages industry.

The convention takes place twice throughout 2023, hosted in San Francisco on July 27th before making its way to Chicago the following week. 


The Farmers Cup is a series of events focused on cannabis education, allowing judges and cannabis connoisseurs the chance to experience a wide variety of new and innovative cannabis products.

Minerva is honored to be entering the Edibles category at the upcoming Farmers Cup!

The Awards Ceremony and Smoke Sesh Celebration takes place in San Diego on February 25th.
