Canopy San Diego, an accelerator for startups in the legal cannabis ancillary space — those are businesses that don’t work directly with marijuana, but support those who do — will show off its portfolio companies at a demo day on June 28.

The accelerator, a franchise of a Colorado-based business, Canopy Boulder, launched in San Diego in 2016.

Among the startups that will present are:

Verticann, the first turnkey vertical cannabis cultivation system developed for the commercial cannabis industry, which claims to reduce production costs while increasing canopy size when compared with traditional cultivation;

EventHi, the world’s first cannabis ticketing platform through which users may discover events, buy tickets and sponsorships, create cannabis events and meet people with shared interests;

Urban Labs, a lab in a box model for cannabis testing intended to create affordable business opportunities for anyone looking to enter the cannabis industry;

Collectif, is a peer-to-peer marketplace for cannabis-friendly accommodations and cannabis-inspired experiences;

MJ Hybrid Solutions, an online sales training and education platform designed to help develop successful cannabis professionals;

and Traffic Roots, a self-serve ad network for the cannabis space.

The demo event is 6-8:30 p.m. at Fleet Science Center. Learn more at canopysd.com.
