MJH Life Sciences said Monday that it acquired media company CSC Events LLC of Baltimore, better known as Cannabis Science Conference, which organizes and hosts biannual scientific and medical cannabis events.
This is the second acquisition in the media sector for Cranbury-based MJH and its first merger in Maryland.
CSC organizes and hosts biannual scientific and medical cannabis events that pull together cannabis industry experts, instrument manufacturers, testing laboratories, research scientists, medical practitioners, policymakers and interested novices.
As part of the acquisition, CSC Events will join the cannabis portfolio at MJH Life Sciences, which includes the Cannabis Science and Technology and Cannabis Patient Care multimedia platforms. Josh Crossney, founder and CEO of CSC, will continue his role with the conference as director of cannabis events at MJH Life Sciences.
“We are thrilled to procure the Cannabis Science Conference as we continue to offer the latest education on testing methods, groundbreaking research, best practices and patient stories that will hopefully continue to move the cannabis industry forward,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., CEO and president of MJH Life Sciences.
“My team and I have worked tirelessly to reduce the stigma surrounding cannabis and to bridge the gaps between cannabis, science and medicine,” Crossney said. “I am very proud of the work Cannabis Science Conference has achieved globally, and I am excited to join forces with MJH Life Sciences to take it to the next level. With the power of MJH, we will expand on our original mission of advancing cannabis science and reach an even broader audience.”
