Cannadouro HEMP Meeting, 1st Edition
"The relaunch of the hemp industry in Portugal”
In 2022, Cannadouro decided to bet on something new, dedicating the first day of the conferences exclusively to agro-industrial hemp through a new event called Cannadouro Hemp Meeting, a day of lectures with international speakers from various areas within the industrial hemp sector.
The use of hemp in eco-construction is the theme chosen for this 1st edition, as it is “a solution that is having great acceptance and allows the immediate disposal of hemp straw, until now considered a by-product”.
MAGAZINE:” Towards cannabis legality!”
As in all editions, all visitors will be offered the magazine that is a guide to the fair, with all relevant information about the event.
“In 2021 we launched Cannadouro Magazine, a quarterly paper magazine, also with an online version, dedicated to disseminating information about cannabis, which already has 7 editions”, says the organization. Cannadouro Magazine is always launched with the arrival of each new season of the year, and transmits information to its readers from an anti-prohibitionist perspective, dedicating space to news, reports, interviews and feature articles on cannabis and agro-industrial hemp.
