In this post we tell you some of the most important marijuana events for 2015: cups, fairs, marches and much more…do not hesitate to attend these events if you have the chance, the number of participants is increasing year by year, making the cannabis movement stronger than ever!
Spannabis Barcelona (Spain), 20-22 March 2015
This year, the 12th edition of Spannabis will be held in Barcelona (Cornellà), the Spanish fair that has become the most important European cannabis event with more than 33.000 visitors in its last edition. This fair has then become an excellent chance for the public to know all the news and developments in the market from the professionals of the marijuana sector and the manufacturers themselves.
The ticket price is 15? per day (35? the 3-day ticket). It is open from 11h to 22:30h on Friday and Saturday, and from 11h to 20h on Sunday. As usual, the Cannabis Champions Cup is held during the fair and rewards the best samples submitted, either buds or all kind of extractions, as well as the best stands and products of the year.
Dab a Doo Barcelona (Spain), the best extractions competition
The night before the opening of Spannabis, on 19 March 2015, Dab-a-Doo will be held at the Resin Club (Barcelona), a competition that quickly became a reference for all lovers of cannabis resin extractions. If you want to compete with your best resins and be able to taste and rate the best solvent (BHO…) and solventless (ice water extractions, dry sift,…) samples, just check Dab-a-Doo Barcelona 2015 Facebook.
Technigrow 2015, the consolidation of the French fair
The second edition of Technigrow, which gathers several professionals of the cannabis sector, will be held during the last weekend of March in Lyon, from 10h to 18h. Despite the prohibition in France of speaking freely about cannabis, this fair is a very good chance to meet different brands related to the marijuana industry (Plagron, Biobizz, Biotabs,…) and discover the latest growing techniques and equipment.
This year, Technigrow will be linked to Technibrew – a space dedicated to the beer culture in which several master manufacturers meet and discuss their techniques – and Design Vegetal, a space to learn how to build a green space at home, whether in the garden or in a small balcony.
