The “National Festival of Fine Fruit” which is to be held on January 10th in El Hoyo in Chubut will have a special addition. In the framework of the activities, the First Meeting of Cannabis Therapy, will be organized by the municipality.

This is how the mayor of Pol Huisman, a mountain town, presented the grid of activities of the 34th edition and highlighted the main aspects of the shows and activities, where there will be a large majority of artists from the Comarca Andina. Huisman stated that those attending the meeting will find a balloon in which producers, distributors, and growers, will display products commonly used in the cannabis culture. Cannabis associations will also be present.

Huisman sad that “We are facing a paradigm shift,” and he added that “It is very important for us to address this issue as a community. There are a lot of people we know who are medicated with cannabis oil or derivatives. There is also the framework of the law that remains punitive, the 23,737. We understand that in community it has to be discussed,”.

Pol Huisman mentioned that “it seems to us that doing the cannabis expo generates a scenario for the beginning of that discussion. We have to discuss cultivation, self-cultivation and medical use, among other aspects.” To that end, the municipality of El Hoyo called for different professionals to speak on the subject and encourage debate.

“We have to get into the issue and go deeper into it so that we can then make decisions,” said Huisman, who added that they plan to “place an urn to do a small survey in the community and find out the position.”

In October, a similar exhibition in La Rural – the first of its kind in the Federal Capital had a strong audience. At the Cannabis Expo, there was a lot of interest in medical cannabis. Even 3 out of every 10 visitors were people over 60 who specifically asked about the therapeutic use of cannabinoids like CBD and THC.

With respect to the activities of the rest of the National Fine Fruit Festival, Huisman said: “We are in the middle of the fruit harvest and looking forward to our festival.”

Among the most important ones, Liliana Herrero will be presented along with Anahí Pereyra and the Pedal Song Orchestra. Admission is free of charge. The festival, of great summoning, was suspended last year due to the Hantavirus outbreak that affected the entire region of the Andean Shire of Chubut.

The festival will help bring more visibility to one of the fastest growing global markets. The CBD sector is set to be worth $9.69 billion by 2025 and represents a huge opportunity for many countries. This growth has largely been sparked by relaxing regulations surrounding cannabis in general and CBD in particular.
