Marco Renda

Marco Renda - Treating Yourself Magazine & Expo Founder - April 5, 2013

Marco Renda from Toronto Cananda is a well known Cannaprenuer in Cannabis Nation.

The founder and publisher of Treating Yourself Magazine founded in 2005, Marco also produces the Treating Yourself Expo in Toronto every year since 2010.  The 4th Annual Treating Yourself Expo on May 24 - 26, 2013 will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.  The hours are 10 am - 6 pm daily.

Treating Yourself magazine is a source for information to heal yourself. Many of the articles are written by patients themselves and provide solid experience based solutions.

The furthering of this education was the impetus behind the Expo.

With a background in trade shows, it was a natural for Marco to expand the reach of the magazine with an event that mirrored the magazine's mission.

It not only mirrors it educationally, it expands it with the ability for patients to talk to vendors, examine products first hand and network.

With a Seed business and countless other endeavors under his belt, Marco is living the dream.

It hasn’t all been easy. Marco was arrested by Canadian authorities in 2005 and successfully defended himself against trafficking charges.

In the pursuit of his seed business Marco once again came under fire by the Canadian authorities as they only allow for certain strains of cannabis and confiscated a suitcase full of seeds.

A lawsuit was enjoined and Canadian customs argued for Renda's company against Health Canada.

Marco has been a licensed producer of Medical Cannabis since he was exempted in 2003 and suffers from Hepatitis C going back over twenty years.

Health and wellness is a business for sure but with so many people in need, good sources of patient information is about life and Marco is first a patient.

Patients helping patients is what it is all about and we look forward to asking Marco about all of these wrinkles and more.
