Your Cannabis Questions Answered

NCIA, in partnership with Brainsy, Inc., has launched the Cannabis Expert Calling Network (ECN®), a knowledge-sharing platform connecting cannabis industry experts with information-seekers and entrepreneurs online or via paid telephone consultations.

We invite you to explore the free online features of the ECN and get to know the many experts on the platform who are ready to answer your questions and help you tackle the challenges you face in the industry.

The Cannabis ECN features experts in a variety of categories, including Industry Introduction, General Consulting, Compliance and Policy, Advanced Business Practices, Cultivation, Dispensaries, Extractions & Infused Products, Marketing & Media, Medical, and Money Matters.

All Cannabis ECN experts are NCIA members for a minimum of 6 months, and most have shared their expertise as speakers or panelists at previous NCIA events. Experts self-designate their specialties and set their own phone consultation rates.
