Attitude Seedbank Cannafest 2016

Cannafest 2016

It is time for us to pack our bongs bags and heads off to another trade show! This time we are headed for Prague to visit the world’s largest trade show – Cannafest! This year it will run from 11-13 of November 2016 at the Expo Prague Holešovice, Prague. Cannafest is home to more than 250 exhibitors from 25 countries and consists of a total indoor area of 13300 m2 so if you miss this it will be deeply uncool and terribly sad!!!

What’s more, is that if you decide not to go you will be missing out on us!  The Attitude Seedbank has teamed up with none other than cannabis seeds connoisseurs G13 Labs seeds to bring you a fantastic trade stall with giveaways, free cannabis seeds and much more! So we suggest you click HERE to purchase a ticket! Well, what are you waiting for?

Now in its 7th year, this international trade show of cannabis and medical herbs will be delivering a whole range of activities, stalls, cinematic features, live music and conferences with a media focus on raising awareness about cannabis and umbrella institutions for companies which use cannabis as a natural resource or fight for legalisation and the use of cannabis in medicine will be present.

http://www.cannafest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/cannafest_2015_138.jpgThis year there are so, so, so many good speakers and public figures giving talks in the conference area with Jana Jesenská giving a talk on Herb Vaporization in Therapeutic Practice, Robert Melamede will be talking about ‘if the Evolution of the CB1 Receptor is Responsible for the Evolution of Humanity’ (super excited about that one), Dean Herenda on Cannabis and human rights approach to health and aged care services and Duje Dorotka on History of the Hemp Plant: Where Did It All Go Wrong? To name a few! We are so excited for these informative talks and can’t wait to hear what these guys have to say. No matter how much you think you know you will always learn something.

Once you have finished (or before you start) your learning journeys, you can head for the rolls and chill out smoking zone. This heated Cannafest Chill out Zone is a place you can sit and relax and listen to a selection of DJs from 11 am. However, there is more to life than just chilling out, so remember to bring good dancing shoes with you; the show will continue on till 2 am! All kinds of drinks are available at the well-stocked bar. The atmosphere is completed by UV pictures made by Daniel Kreibich and video mapping by Kino Cirkus.

Friday line-up features stars such as DJ Telka, known from the Cross Club and Radio 1; the night will be young with a combo of dance music and live percussions by Offbeat Project and also Faith in Sound, more than a break-beat band. And since we have faith in sound too, we have hired Noise Control Audio by Mayapur Production!

Saturday afternoon will showcase different facets of hip hop music, so three couples will take turns at the gramophones: first Beduan and Dave Trumpeteer with live trumpet, then DJ Zaires and DJ Bazooka Joe and finally Pendapon and TNC from the Kinetix sound system.http://www.cannafest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/cannafest_2015_153.jpg

Sunday will feature music from all over the planet, including elements of reggae, funk and jazz.
The Chill out Zone will be located in front of the Cannafest main entrance in special copula tents and will surely satisfy lovers of many music genres. With 18 acts over the three days there will be something for everyone – but Cannafest is a large show – you have to remember to leave the chill out zone at some point!!!

Now if you were wondering what is the difference between vaporization and smoking or need help with selecting the correct vaporizer, then do not miss a visit to the Cannafest Vapo Lounge, where experienced professionals help you with everything related to vaporization of various herbs.

For testing of vaporization there will be chamomile, sage or mint. Vaporization is healthy alternative for smokers who want to quit.

This year’s Cannafest Cinema will feature a wide range of informative and entertaining films such as WEED: HISTORY OF MARIHUANA (This older movie tells a well-composed story of marihuana and American legislature in the 20th century. Full of precious archive material, this documentary can be recommended to everyone, who has not yet seen cult scenes from the propagandistic movie Reefer Madness.)

THE SCIENTIST (This Israeli documentary tells the lifetime story of Raphael Mechoulam – a renowned scientist who studies chemistry and biology of a plant recently rediscovered by modern science. Prof. Mechoulam was the first person in the world who managed to synthesize THC.)

http://www.cannafest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/cannafest_2015_108.jpgHOW WEED WON THE WEST (The film shows that although many things have changed in the United States under the presidency of Barack Obama, the war on drugs still wages on. The viewers are being informed in an entertaining manner about issues that are not entertaining or funny at all, such as the influence of big pharmaceutical businesses over criminalization and prohibition of cannabis.)

So if music, cinema, smoking room, bar, stalls and conferences weren’t enough for you, there is a reading room where you can go to take a breather. Located in the Left Wing of the Industrial Palace on the stand of Cannafest Merchandising, The Cannafest Reading Room will be appreciated by bookworms as well all those who wish to have a break for a while and learn new information – not only about hemp. Specialized books and magazines are available to those who are interested in the theme of drugs, such as the Czech magazine Legalizace and the cannabis newspaper Soft Secrets.

If you want to go to Cannafest but you need a baby sitter? No fear, there is a Kids Fun & Relax Zone. Baby Office invites you to the Kids Fun & Relax Zone where you can chill out with your kids and there are professional babysitters to take care of your kids while you enjoy the festival program and presentations (children must be 2 years of age; children under 2 years of age will be accepted by mutual consent). Fun Zone including toys such as building blocks and children’s library will be available for your kids. A creative workshop called Hello Pumpkin will take place; our assistants will help older kids to use computer in order to develop their own artwork from designing to cutting and assembling; younger children will get paper templates to work with creatively.

Is all of the above making you hungry? Even this year as always Cannafest 2016 will offer its usual Hemp Catering presenting healthy, tasty and nutritious food throughout the trade show.

All the hemp specialties are prepared from fresh and bio ingredients and homemade ready-to-cook foods. Hemp oil, hemp flour, hemp salt, seeds and dried leaves will be used. The recipes do not include any food additives or flavour enhancers and the delicate hemp ice cream with hemp waffles and hemp beer are NOT to be missed! This nutritious and delicious fare will keep you refuelled and ready for the next event. Apart from hemp catering visitors can look forward to drinks and cocktails from one of the oldest cocktail bars in Prague – The Zanzibar.
