2016 Expoweed Chile

We are proud and delighted to announce the opening of Alchimiaweb Chile, a new adventure that leads us to discover beautiful South America and the current situation of the cannabis scene in this part of the world.

Ever since we arrived Chile we have been meeting wonderful people who have welcomed us with open arms, helping us in anything they could and allowing us to enjoy their positive vibrations. We couldn’t be happier with our experience in Chile, also grateful for all the support and love received. We really feel like home here!

We hope this will be the beginning of a fantastic journey across the American continent, also that we’ll be able to meet more and more amazing people, which is doubtless the best part of this experience.

As for cannabis events, we had the honour to assist the 6th edition of the Copa de los Andes, which was held on November 26th in a beautiful part of Cajón del Maipo, right next to the Maipo river and with awesome sights of the mountains.

About 130 visitors could enjoy both the samples and the bright sunshine, also the different foods and drinks offered by the organizers.

Those looking for some relax could also enjoy the tent with benches, or visit the tasting area for judges and see how the samples were evaluated. A vast area of lawn was used by some to have a nap, while others went to the river beach to connect with nature.

A few days later, on November 30th, we also attended the 4th edition of the Neurocopa del Pacífico, another cannabis event held during these dates and whose award ceremony is held at Expoweed.

Just one hour away from the center of Santiago we met in a beautiful villa with swimming pool, drinks and large areas of shade. The good vibes were shared by the 80 visitors, who could enjoy a wonderful day meeting new people and smoking good pot.

50 bud entries and a large number of concentrates and extracts were rated by the judges and enjoyed by growers and professionals of the sector. The results were announced on Sunday at Expoweed. Here you have the complete list:

Alchimia wants to thank all participants, visitors and organizers of this fantastic event, which allowed us to witness the quality of Chilean pot and the techniques of some of the best growers from this awesome country. We hope to meet you all again next year, perhaps we can taste together a future Philosopher Seeds entry for the cup!

Chile is green, and we LOVE it!
