Welcome to CannaTrade, the longest existing cannabis expo in Europe! The story of CannaTrade began already in 2001, when the "Schweizer Hanf-Tagen (Swiss Hemp Days)" turned into the international hemp fair that took place in Bern at BEAExpo for the very first time. From 2008 the CannaTrade moved to Basel, for two editions, and in the following years in Zurich the farir became bigger and bigger. After ten years the time is ripe to return to the place of birth of the international hemp fair CannaTrade:
Next Edition: BernExpo, in Bern, 15. – 17. May 2020
Hemp is one of the eldest useful plants on earth. The Chinese are
cultivating hemp for more than 10'000 years. The hemp plant is
relatively easy to grow, doesn't need any pesticide, furthermore,
it is an ameliorant.
Hemp on the fields, save the woods. Refering to an equal area, the annual hemp plant is four to five times more effective in the paper production than trees. Caused by the enormous strength of the fiber, hemp paper can be receycled far more often than wooden paper.
Furthermore, hemp produces two to three times more fibers than the cotton plant, but without any pesticide. 50% of the total used pesticide are for the cotton growing. We have finally to stop this contamination of earth and groundwater.
Hemp seed is far more nutritious than even soybean, contains more essential fatty acids than any other source, is second only to soybeans in complete protein (but is more digestible by humans), is high in B-vitamins, and is 35% dietary fiber.
Hemp seed is not psychoactive and cannot be used as a drug. Hemp seed oil may be nature's most perfectly balanced oil. It contains an ideal 3:1 ratio of omega-6's [linoleic acid] to omega-3's [alpha-linolenic acid] for long-term use, and provides the omega-6 derivative gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Hemp can be used in many ways, like no other plant i.e. as biomass
or as isolation and building material. Regional and hemp based
circular flow economies in connection with solar energy may help to
stop the climate warming.
Hemp is last but not least one of the eldest elixir and intoxicant in the human history.
Hemp is an effective medicine against seizures, sickness, stress and so many more diseases.
In addition, hemp is one of the less toxic plants and nowadays, the
best studied drug worldwide.
Hemp could stop the intoxication of the population through harmful medicine. The turn to sustainable agriculture will be impossible without this precious plant. A complete rehabilitation of hemp, the useful plant No. 1, is overdue. Natural resources, water and the sun provide with all we need.
Cannabis with less than 1% THC content is now legal for consumption in Swiss. Various of cannabis products and lots of CBD weed will be offered at the hemp fair CannaTrade. Concerning food and medicaments/drugs the current Swiss Law in is more strictly. A minimum THC content in foodstuffs is legal but CBD is here completely forbidden (still). Represented products for the purpose of healing, even naturally based ones, have to be officially authorized by Swissmedic, otherwise promotion is not permitted.
Cannabis users will find a lot of helpful info on the entire Swiss law regarding consumption of cannabis http://www.hanflegal.ch/
The selling and distribution of hempseeds with more than 1% THC content is illegal in Swiss. Please pay attention to the farming regulations. Hempseeds (less than 1% THC) for nutritious purpose are not only legal but also delicious and healthy.See also: Cannabis
Under this labeling, the first Swiss hemp events took place in the years 1999 and 2000. These actions finally lead to the first international hemp fair CannaTrade.ch in 2001.
