Cannabis Europe started in 2018 with the intent to bring Europe to the forefront of the emerging cannabis market. The legalization of medical cannabis is a point of discussion in many European countries, and policymakers are calling for more research, to be able to work on proper legislation around the substance. Cannabis Europe is at the forefront of this movement.
Main objective of the Cannabis Europe conference
Cannabis Europe arrives in Spain in February 2020, one of Europe’s largest cannabis markets that has yet to legalize cannabis. According to the event organizers, the NOBL Group, who also own the international consultancy Prohibition Partners, the main objective of the conference is “to share knowledge and shape the future of medical cannabis in Spain and Europe.”
The event will bring together over 250 politicians, business leaders, and health professionals to discuss how to unlock Spain’s potential for access to medical cannabis. Several speakers will be present to share their vision and knowledge, from research to medicine, politics, and patients.
Bruno Maia, Neurologist at the “de São José Hospital”, and founding member of the OPCM – Portuguese Observatory of Medical Cannabis, will be one of the speakers of the event along with Janosch Kratz, MD, also a member of the Advisory Board of OPCM.
Regulatory cannabis models in Spain
Deputy Piernicola Pedicini will give an overview of the different regulatory models in Spain and Europe. This will be followed by the President of the Spanish Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies, Luis de Palacio, who will be exploring how the infrastructure of a neighboring country can be channeled to support the development of Spanish medical cannabis.
Spain has been instrumental in the development of recreational cannabis culture in Europe. The first clubs were opened in 1991 and it’s estimated that there are more than 400 cannabis clubs throughout the country, including Catalonia, which placed Spain in the 3rd place in Europe for cannabis consumption, and 13th in the world.
Medical cannabis legalization in Spain
However, despite pioneering policies with regard to recreational consumption, Spain is still waiting behind the scenes for the legalization of medical cannabis, despite the fact that 84% of the population is in favor of its use. Spain, therefore, represents a strong commercial industry and has one of the most innovative biomedical sectors in the world, making it one of the most promising markets for cannabis in Europe, assuming a huge investment potential.
Cannabis Europe’ is one of Europe’s leading conference series on medical cannabis, with events around the world, that aims to be a platform for thought leadership, and an opportunity to connect influential leaders in science, politics and business.
