Cannabis Industry Leaders And International Policymakers To Attend Croatia Retreat

After a historic Global Investment Forum and B2B conference in Berlin in July, the International Cannabis Business Conference is hosting a Mediterranean retreat in Rovinj, Croatia at the stunning 5-star Grand Park Hotel on September 22-23, 2022.

“It’s a critical time for the international cannabis industry, including for the Balkan region. The emerging legal cannabis industry is expanding at an ever-increasing pace in virtually every corner of the planet right now. It’s extremely important for industry leaders and policymakers from around the world collaborate.” stated Alex Rogers, founder of the International Cannabis Business Conference.

“The cannabis industry is going global, and in order for the industry to reach its full potential and provide numerous benefits to society it is vital for leaders to meet, network, brainstorm, and compare ideas. That is why we created the retreat in Croatia. The retreat will certainly contain some of the elements that our events are famous for, however, it will be in a more intimate setting so that leaders from dozens of countries can dive deeper into the more granular aspects of creating the next great global industry.” Rogers went on to say.

Cannabis reform is spreading across the European continent. With Germany expected to launch a regulated adult-use industry in the near future, every European nation is trending closer to reforming its own cannabis laws, including Balkan nations. The Balkan region is already home to a number of ancillary industries that would greatly benefit from cannabis reform, including and especially the scientific research industry.

The International Cannabis Business Conference’s Mediterranean retreat in Croatia will be unlike any other cannabis event to-date. The retreat will feature a blend of education and networking, with topics for the retreat’s curriculum to include:

  • Current legalization efforts in Europe
  • Economic benefits of regulating cannabis
  • Embracing cannabis research
  • Product development for an international market
  • Sustainable industry strategies
  • Educating medical professionals
  • Reforming Balkan region cannabis policies
  • Raising capital for Balkan cannabis markets

Individual speakers and panelists have already been announced, with more expected to be announced in the near future. Of course, it would not be an International Cannabis Business Conference event without an after-party, and this particular event’s after-party will be unmatched. The one and only DJ Muggs will provide the music for the poolside after-party at the 5-star Grand Park Hotel to cap off a productive and historic retreat.

The International Cannabis Business Conference is the leading B2B cannabis event series on earth. Events have been held in the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, and Switzerland. Additional locations in other countries are being identified and will be announced in the future.

Cannabis Museum Opens In Zagreb, Croatia

Cannabis prohibition is one of the worst public policies in human history. It has ruined countless lives and prevented the cannabis plant from being fully utilized to help the world for far too many years.

When people learn the truth about the cannabis plant and the industrial and wellness properties that it possesses, their minds are transformed and they obviously question why cannabis was ever prohibited in the first place?

Unfortunately, it is politically advantageous to certain lawmakers and industries to prohibit cannabis, and those cannabis prohibitionists have spread anti-cannabis propaganda across the globe for many years.

With that being said, the walls of cannabis prohibition are crumbling at an ever-increasing rate. The number one tool that cannabis advocates have to battle prohibition propaganda is the truth, and the more advocates educate the masses regarding the truth about cannabis the faster prohibition will end.

Zagreb Cannabis Museum

A museum dedicated to educating people about the cannabis plant recently opened in Zagreb, Croatia. The region was once one of the top hemp producers on earth, ranking 3rd globally as of 1949.

That obviously changed after Croatia declared its independence in 1991 and cannabis prohibition laws were passed. Cannabis is still illegal in Croatia, although personal possession is decriminalized and certain hemp products are now legal.

The company in Zagreb that opened the cannabis museum specializes in hemp products and launched the venue in an effort to educate people about the benefits of the cannabis plant.

“Stretching over 4000 square foot, the museum presents a wide range of cannabis use and its benefits – including morphology, millennial history, cultivation, life cycle of the plant, as well as recreational, medical, and universal use of cannabis.” a museum press release stated.

According to the press release, admission for adults is $8 and the admission ticket itself doubles as a set of rolling papers and filter tips, meaning that museum patrons can literally use their ticket to consume cannabis, which is a really cool concept.

What Else Does The Museum Feature?

The museum also “contains a rich variety of exhibits, and in several showcases, You can find the products from US and Canadian markets which can now be seen for the first time by the Croatian public. Even though, a majority of residents in States and Canada, take these products for granted.” according to the museum’s press release.

“Outside of the museum, various workshops, screenings, and panel discussions about Cannabis will take place in a nice environment.” the press release went on to say.

The museum is located at Radićeva ul. 15, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia, and is open 9 AM to 10 PM every weekday except Sundays. Sundays the museum is open from 12 PM to 8 PM.

I really like to see efforts like this within the international cannabis community and wish that every area was home to a cannabis museum. The more that we can educate our communities about the cannabis plant the faster cannabis prohibition will finally come to a complete end worldwide.
