(Carbondale, IL) – The Academic Cannabis Conference is set to attract attendees from across the Illinois
cannabis industry, including professionals, longtime enthusiasts, and newcomers, to the Garden Grove
Event Center in Carbondale for two conjoining networking experiences, the Education Center & Job Fair
and the Entertainment & Cannabis Community. Though the two event spaces are separated within the
event grounds, ticket holders will have free rein to travel back-and-forth between the two conjoining
events that run from 12-5 p.m. May 4. Free tickets can be reserved here.
The Education Center & Job Fair portion of the event, with the SIUC Cannabis Science Center as academic
contributor, will combine academic research and education with job fair opportunities and resources and
include academic presentations, a panel, horticulture programs, certificate programs, job trainers, job
seekers, employers, and potential and current students in cannabis. The Garden Grove Event Center is
located at 1215 East Walnut St. in Carbondale.
The Education Center booth and Presentation Stage are the focal points for this portion of the event. The
Education Center booth will be the communal marketing materials location for job opportunities and
academic resources. From the Presentation Stage, professors and professionals in the cannabis field will
deliver research presentations and a discussion panel. Presenters include Dr. Jose Leme from Southern
Illinois University, Dr. Suzanne Mulvehill from the Female Orgasm Research Institute, Marialle A. Bell from
St. Louis University, and more.
The Entertainment & Cannabis Community portion features a variety of new and established Illinois
cannabis brands, legal consumption, a full cannabis bar service, a dab bar service, an infused-cocktail bar
service, joint rolling stations, music, food, games, giveaways, and more. Anchored in the middle of the
