Spannabis Conference

Barcelona , Spain

About Spannabis Conference

In March 2019, the seventh edition of the World Cannabis Conferences will be held together with Spannabis. In this new edition we will have the presence of scientific, medical and political personalities; as well as relevant agents of the cannabis sector.
The World Canabis Conferences have become a reference event thanks to the transmission of advances and efforts carried out in the field of cannabis. Through thematic blocks in forum format, and also specific conferences, we intend to delve into the different dimensions of this controversial plant.
We continue believing that it is essential to approach regulation from an international perspective, to analyze in depth the problems experienced by our own country, to approximate the scientific perspective for a better understanding of the potential and viability of standardization, and to understand the medical needs of sick people and the progress that is being made despite the prohibition.
The World Cannabis Conferences will be held in a framework of reflection in which the attendees will have the possibility of being part of the debate and transfer their questions to the speakers.
