CBD Hemp Business Fair Is Coming To Spain

Cannabidiol (CBD) currently has the designation of being the most popular cannabinoid on earth. As proof of that claim, consider the fact that CBD is searched more often on Google than any other cannabinoid, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and that’s been the case since December 2016.

In addition to being queried more often on the world’s most popular online search engine than its cannabinoid counterparts, hemp-derived CBD is legal in far more regions of the planet compared to THC. It is estimated that the global CBD market was worth nearly 5 billion USD in 2021 and that it could be worth as much as 47 billion USD by 2028. That figure doesn’t include the global market for industrial hemp, which is set to experience a 33%+ compounded annual growth rate through 2030 according to at least one estimate.

You will be hardpressed to find an industry that is already worth billions of dollars and yet is still set to experience the level of exponential growth that the global CBD and industrial hemp industry will experience in the coming years. There is literally no better time to get into the CBD industry than right now, and a great way to do exactly that is to attend the upcoming CBD Hemp Business Fair in Barcelona on October 7-9, 2022.

Spannabis, the world’s largest cannabis trade show with more than 20 years of experience, is launching this amazing new event focused on CBD and industrial hemp. The fair is expected to have more than 100 brands present on a 12,000 square meter expo floor. Over 1,500 industry professionals and 15,000 visitors are expected to be in attendance over the course of the 3-day event.

CBD Hemp Business Fair will feature an event networking app that helps facilitate collaborations between exhibitors and event attendees before and during the event. The app is a very useful tool to promote companies, make appointments, and discover new potential clients.

The event’s showroom will feature demonstrations, presentations, and entertainment including cooking demonstrations and live music. The event will also include an outdoor food truck area, the CBD Champions Cup, and the CBD and Hemp Awards. If you want to get into the emerging CBD and hemp industry, or just want to learn more about its products and services, you do not want to miss this event!

International Cannabis Business Conference Barcelona 2022

Barcelona Cannabis Superconference 2022 Was Particularly Special

For many years Spannabis served as the largest cannabis gathering on planet earth, well before cannabis went mainstream and even before the emerging legal cannabis industry even existed. People came to Barcelona year after year from all over the globe to celebrate the cannabis plant and the community that surrounds it.

After a brief hiatus, Spannabis came back last month and once again the event teamed up with the International Cannabis Business Conference to form the world’s largest cannabis superconference. By many measures, the superconference was the first truly global cannabis event to take place in 2022. Anyone that attended the events will be quick to tell you that the atmosphere was electric and it was amazing to see old friends and make new ones.

For the International Cannabis Business Conference specifically, over 1,000 people attended the event in total. Lawmakers, regulators, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry service providers from 80 countries attended the B2B conference, along with dozens of expert speakers that covered a range of important topics during their presentations. Below is a recap video from the International Cannabis Business Conference’s YouTube channel, where videos of the panels can also be viewed courtesy of Marihuana Television:

One thing that was very evident throughout the conference is that while many industries have had to scale back or even stall completely in recent years, the cannabis industry is not one of them. The legal cannabis industry is larger than ever before and operates in more jurisdictions than ever before, so it’s not exactly shocking that the excitement level in Barcelona was enormous. You could see it on everyone’s faces and sense it in their enthusiastic conversations.

The future of the global cannabis industry is extremely bright, particularly on the European continent where the cannabis industry is expanding at a rapid pace. That is especially true in Berlin, Germany where the next set of International Cannabis Business Conference events will take place this July. The Berlin Global Investment Forum will occur on July 18th, 2022, with a VIP reception being held the night before. This investment-focused summit will bring together international investors and cannabis companies looking for capital while providing a forum for exchange in the key areas that the market needs most – real data and available capital.

After the Global Investment Forum, the International Cannabis Business Conference’s flagship B2B event begins its 2-day curriculum of keynote speakers, presentations, and expert-led panels. Both events will be the ideal place for cannabis entrepreneurs, investors, and industry service providers to network with each other as well as network with leading international cannabis policymakers from around the globe.

Below is footage of a panel from last year’s International Cannabis Business Conference in Berlin featuring representatives from Germany’s major political parties, the first panel of its kind at the time. The panel discussion occurred a mere weeks before Germany’s 2021 election. The results of German’s election that year, and the Traffic Light Coalition that came out of it, are the driving force behind adult-use cannabis legalization in Germany right now.

It’s just one of the many examples of why people should attend the International Cannabis Business Conference in Berlin this year. Tickets are available at this link here.

Ed Rosenthal

Ed Rosenthal Implores Cannabis Industry To Help Free Cannabis Prisoners

Ed Rosenthal, often referred to as ‘the Guru of Ganja,’ is one of the most recognizable people in the entire global cannabis community. Long-serving as one of the most prolific cannabis authors on planet earth, Rosenthal was educating the masses about cannabis cultivation before many current cannabis community members were even alive.

In addition to being an author and leading international cultivation expert, Ed Rosenthal is also one of the most passionate cannabis activists on earth. He has fought tirelessly for several decades to do his part in helping reform harmful cannabis prohibition policies not only in his home state of California or his home country in the United States, but all over the world.

So it was not exactly surprising to see Ed Rosenthal use his time on the microphone as a special guest in Barcelona at the recent International Cannabis Business Conference to promote what he describes as ‘the most important subject.’ That subject is freeing cannabis prisoners around the globe. During his speech Rosenthal implored all members of the cannabis industry to do their part, stating that ‘you owe it’ to help free cannabis prisoners if you are a part of the cannabis industry, and Ed is 100% spot-on in expressing that logical and compassionate expectation.

Below is Ed Rosenthal’s special speech in Barcelona in its entirety. One organization working on freeing cannabis prisoners that you will hear Ed specifically mention is the Last Prisoner Project. We encourage people to check out the organization, in addition to watching Ed’s speech in the embedded video below (footage via MarihuanaTelevision.tv):
