About Us

MJ Unpacked, in partnership with BDSA, is a series of 3D virtual summits that reveal state-specific actionable intel, best practices, and trends exclusively for cannabis brand and retail executives. Each virtual summit features market research and case studies, as well as an exhibit of new products for the industry. 

MJ Unpacked serves the needs of the most critical sub-segmentation of any CPG industry - the brands and retailers. Unlike events and conferences that are heavily populated with supply-side and infrastructure companies, and lack attendee qualification, MJ Unpacked provides an exclusive forum for qualified brand and retail decision-makers. We facilitate peer-to-peer collaboration, discussions of what will drive direct engagement with consumers, and the evolving state-by-state landscape. MJ Unpacked delivers unique data presentations and insights pertinent to the segment driving today’s market. And it's all done online. 

MJ Unpacked is produced by Jage Media.
