Attendees will understand consumer demographics, desires, and concerns in this new segment.  Participants will be introduced to quantitative and qualitative research with the possibility of applying the findings to Legalized Cannabis and Hemp Edibles food policy and food science challenges.

Attendees will be able to:
1. Understand demographics of adult consumers in legalized jurisdictions,
2. Understand potential consumer trends as countries and states legalized adult-use edibles
3. Understand research into consumer desires and concerns for legalized edibles
