Greetings OU alumni and friends. I hope you have all enjoyed a great Labor Day weekend. When the month of September comes around, it seems that 2016 is right around the corner. Where has the year gone? While a lot has happened this year, I am sure there is more change to come.  We look forward to hearing your stories of success and sharing them. Please respond to the newsletter if you’d like to share your story.

I am happy to mention that this October 2nd – 4th, Oaksterdam will be in Orlando, Florida, where we will be working with the International Canna Pro Expo to offer—for the very first time—continuing medical education credits for physicians and continuing nursing education credits for nurses. We hope to bridge the gap between medical cannabis education with leading doctors renowned in their field, providing information specific to their respected medical specialty.

You can also find Oaksterdam at this year’s Marijuana Business Conference, this November 11th – 13th in fabulous Las Vegas. We will be sponsoring our Marijuana Business Crash Course, which will be a great place for entrepreneurs and investors.

If you’ve been working too hard and it’s time for a vacation consider Jamaica. Not only is Negril hosting the world cannabis cup this November, but Oaksterdam together with 310 Ganja Tours is offering an all-inclusive tour package. The package includes handling your ground transportation, most meals, hotel, hop on and off tours, night excursions, and—most importantly—private, one-and-only access to ganja fields, outdoor seed harvests, and catering to all of your needs. Meet, greet and eat with local growers, Negrils Ganja Grow Champ and much more in a safe and exclusive way. A discounted rate is available for OU Alumni and friends. Learn more about it down below.

Looks like a busy end of the year. Enjoy, be safe and we wish you much success in your  cannabis career!
