Topics include:

  • Marketing and pitch deck considerations for start-ups. 
  • Changes to the Cannabis and Hemp Act and how they will affect businesses in the sector. 
  • The future of medical cannabis in Asia.


  • Dr. Paul Crosio, a Partner at Silk Legal who was recently recognised as one of the Top 200 Global Cannabis Lawyers of 2022. 
  • Diego Sala, Managing Director of Siam Trade Development specialises in regulated activities surrounding cannabis products, dietary supplements, and medical devices. 

Both speakers have years of experience in the Thai business community and in Thailand’s cannabis industry. This discussion is sure to draw interest from Thailand’s Cannabis community, tourism, and hospitality sectors as well as those who are just curious about the country’s budding Cannabis sector.
