The association CannaSwissCup organises annually the popular Swiss Cannabis Cup – the choice of the best CBD sorts in the different categories Indoor, Outdoor and Greenhouse. The Awardshow takes place during the hemp fair CannaTrade, please have a look at the current programme > Side Events > CannaSwissCup

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 fair became bigger and bigger. After ten years the time is ripe to return to the place of birth of the International Cannabis Expo CannaTrade:

Next Edition: BernExpo, in Bern, 28. – 30. May 2021

The management of the fair gives all visitors advice to use the public transport. A positive aspect of public transport is certainly that you may drink one or two beers without getting in trouble...
Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the entire area of the BernExpo, therefore we kindly ask you to leave your beloved four-legged friends at home.
General information for exhibitors as well the list of exhibitors you will find here:

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.
