What's at the Spannabis Barcelona expo?

Everything for growing marijuana

Seeds, specialized growing equipment, the latest technological developments, natural fertilizers — a large part of the expo is dedicated to growing marijuana, because professional and aspiring growers make up almost 30% of the festival's visitors!

Equipment for consuming cannabis

Manufacturers from Spain, the USA, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Austria, and other countries showcase their branded accessories: bongs, vaporizers, grinders, pipes, and all sorts of other cool smoking gadgets.

Industrial hemp

Industrial hemp has its own dedicated space at the expo, especially in the textile sphere. The fashion for eco-friendly, high-strength hemp fabrics is gaining popularity. Hemp materials are already used by brands such as H&M, Nike, Adidas, D&G, Burberry, Max Mara, and many, many more. The expo features both innovative fabrics and special equipment for weaving.

CBD and medical cannabis

This section of the expo is growing at the fastest pace, just like scientific interest in CBD and medical cannabis all over the world!

Spannabis Awards

Within the framework of the expo, the annual Spannabis Awards are held in the following categories:

  • Best stand
  • Best seed bank
  • Best nutrient
  • Best cultivation product
  • Best post-cultivation product
  • Best paraphernalia product
  • Best hemp product
  • Best cbd product
  • Best vaporizer
  • Best new product

World Cannabis Conference and ICBC conferences

The scientific and business conferences, which are among the most influential international events for the cannabis industry, bring together scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors from more than 40 countries.

The agenda of the three-day conferences includes the latest scientific research: medical and economic; issues of regulating the consumption and legalization of marijuana in Europe; trends in cannabis consumption and technological developments for its cultivation.

Spannabis Champions Cup

A jury of professional cannabis tasters (catadores) blindly evaluates the quality and presentation of cannabis products. "Blindly" means that the jury members assess the appearance, taste, smell, and other characteristics without knowing the name, manufacturer, or any other references to the nominee.

The main program of the championship includes the following nominations:

  • The Best SATIVA strain
  • The Best INDICA strain
  • The Best RESIN
  • The Best CBD
  • The Best HASH

Cannabis clubs and growshops exhibit their products for the championship. By the way, anyone can try the best of the best at the championship (but be prepared to wait in line).

Festival atmosphere

The festival has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, even though some people are there to do serious business while others are just there to learn about cannabis culture for the first time. It's common to interact with strangers, share your thoughts and experiences. In the evenings, there's electronic music, beer, and wine.

There's a designated outdoor area where you can smoke marijuana throughout the festival. It's usually hard to leave without making some interesting new friends!

Conditions of participation

You must be over 18 years old and have an ID with you. You can only purchase personalized tickets: either for one day (22€) or for all three days of the festival (50€).
