Cannafest is coming back to Prague
From the 6th to the 8th of November (this weekend) Cannafest is coming to the Czech Republic again. Manufacturers meet investors who meet hippies who meet the public. Cannabis, ladies and gentlemen, is going main stream. On show is the best growing equipment on the planet, presented by some of the legends of our industry. There will be demonstrations of new hemp products and even a hemp massage area! Being a complete cannabis geek however, you will find Praguepot sitting quietly at the back of the professional conferences that are held in the left wing of the exhibition halls. There are many interesting speakers this year. From Israel, Yehuda Baruch is back in Prague to speak about cannabis and driving. Israel has been at the cutting edge of medical cannabis use so Yehudi’s talk should be very informative. From Encod Janko Belin will be speaking about next Aprils UN meeting UNGASS. At this meeting in New York, it is widely believed that cannabis will finally be freed from the criminal prohibition that has been forced on the medicinal plant. But there is one speaker that is above them all. Cristina Sanchez is to cannabis as Neil armstrong is to travel. Along with some other Spanish scientists, it was her work that gave scientific fact to the claims that cannabis kills cancer cells. If you want to catch a glimpse of medical cannabis royalty, then join me at 17:15 on Saturday, as she speaks about cannabis and cancer treatment.
There is the usual smokers area with cool live music and there are even a few interesting after parties. If you are visiting you can email us(firstname.lastname@example.org) for a list of venues. The Czech Republic has always been open to cannabis, and as the plant emerges from American prohibition, Prague is a fitting location for this annual cannabis information event. You can find all details of this event on cannafest’s website here.
