Jon Paul
Plus Products

Jon Paul, an FEI member for 27 years, has served as CFO/consultant in many fast paced industries, but had no idea what he was getting into when he plunged into the cannabis industry. Since June 2018, he has been with Plus Products, a leading manufacturer cannabis infused gummies in California and Nevada, which also expanded into CBD gummies available nationwide. Jon eventually became CFO, taking Plus public in Canada on the CSE exchange in October 2018 and successfully navigating banking, tax, insurance, regulatory and operations issues. Jon will give you a lively inside look into this industry – cannabis will continue to be a hot topic in the new decade as local communities, states, our country and others around the world wrestle with the issues while competitors in beverage, alcohol, tobacco and other categories decide how to get involved.
