  • This type of booking can be made by only one employee of AustCham Member. If you want to register more guests from same company please select "Multiple registrations from the same member company"
  • While our strong preference is that each employee of an AustCham member company create their own log-in to book for events, we recognise there are events such Sundowners where one company may wish to place a single booking for multiple employees. Contact us for the code to unlock this booking option.

This seminar will cover the practical aspects of setting up a cannabis grow operation in Thailand and the regulatory requirements for doing so. Topics will include the ‘highs’ and lows of starting a cannabis business in the Kingdom, guidance on how to navigate the draft Cannabis Act, as well as the requirements for acquiring licenses to grow, import seeds, and sell your products. This will be followed by a discussion on greenhouses and indoor growing and what to expect.

The legal session will be led by Dr. Paul Crosio, Partner at Silk Legal who was recently recognized as one of the Top 200 Global Cannabis Lawyers of 2022, while the session on growing cannabis will be led by Dominic Boyle who is a Master Grower for Expert Seed Bank Thailand and Garden of Green Thailand with over 20 years of experience in indoor grow setups worldwide, from genetics selection to hardware solutions.

Both speakers have a popular and substantial social media presence, and this discussion is sure to draw interest from both the Cannabis community in Thailand as well as those who are curious about the recent Cannabis deregulation.
