The Cannabis Business Summit took over part of the Colorado Convention Center this week -- and many of the products on sale in the expo hall, from business insurance to marketing solutions, were a testament to the ever-growing professionalism of this state's marijuana industry members. But there were some fun products targeted toward dispensary-owners, too.
We picked our favorites to share. Count them down below.

Number 8: The folks at EZTrim say this automatic bud trimmer can clip 25-30 pounds of cannabis a day, trimming at six times the rate of five employees.

Continue to keep counting down the top eight products from the Cannabis Business Summit. Number 6: These Cibaderm products are infused with CBD, an extraction from the marijuana plant, but they aren't psychoactive and can be purchased anywhere in the United States with no special medical license; they allegedly provide pain relief with no psychoactive side effects. Number 5: PhoenixFastFill can produce pre-rolled joints in cigarette-like form to a desired weight, and the company says it works at least ten times faster than doing it by hand -- and minus the saliva.
