Oregon Cannabis Business Council
The Oregon Cannabis Business Council (OCBC) is a member-driven trade association. We provide professional assistance to all industry and ancillary cannabis businesses and representation for in-state legislative and regulatory decision making.
ATTENTION MEMBERS AND FRIENDS:
OCBC Meetings have been SUSPENDED until September so that our members can enjoy their summertime.
There will NOT be monthly member meetings in JULY or AUGUST!
We’ll see you again in September to talk about what we want to accomplish in the next Legislative session.
Craft cannabis: Oregon leaders explore the state’s opportunity, challenges
There are challenges to overcome, but Oregon is in a position to develop a powerful cannabis industry, with valuable craft brands that mirror the state’s success in coffee and beer, industry leaders believe.
Despite the state’s small consumer base, “Oregon has an amazing track record of building companies in the craft products category,” said Hifi Farms President and CEO Sara Batterby, a panelist Thursday at a Business Journal Power Breakfast that addressed the status and future of cannabis in Oregon.
