Each year, the association organizes the popular Swiss Cannabis Cup – the choice of the best CBD varieties in the different categories of Indoor, Outdoor and Greenhouse. The award ceremony takes place during the CannaTrade Hemp Fair. Please see the current program > Side Events > CannaSwissCup
Welcome to CannaTrade, the longest-running cannabis trade fair in Europe! The story of CannaTrade began in 2001, when the ‘Schweizer Hanf-Tagen’ (Swiss Hemp Days) turned into the international hemp fair that took place in Bern at BEA Expo for the very first time. In 2008, CannaTrade moved to Basel for two sessions and in the following years, to Zurich where the fair became bigger and bigger. The 2020 edition, which was postponed until 2021, returned to Bern again for the first time in 13 years.
Next Edition: Halle 622, Zurich, May 12-14, 2023
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 containing less than 1% THC content is now legal for consumption in Switzerland. A range of cannabis products and various types of CBD weed will be on offer at the CannaTrade Hemp Fair. Where food and medicaments/drugs are concerned, the current Swiss law is stricter. A minimum THC content in foodstuffs is legal but CBD is (still) completely prohibited here. Products for the purpose of healing, even where natural in origin, have to be officially authorized by Swissmedic, otherwise promise of healing may not be advertised.
Cannabis users will find a lot of helpful information about the Swiss law on cannabis consumption at http://www.hanflegal.ch/
The selling and distribution of hempseeds with a THC content in excess of 1% is illegal in Switzerland. Please pay attention to the farming regulations. Hempseeds (with less than 1% THC) for nutritional purposes are not only legal but also delicious and healthy.See also: Cannabis
