It’s impossible to mention events in 2022 without stating the obvious; over the past couple of years it’s been very hard to get out and celebrate our favourite plant without restrictions and cancellations.
In the leafie office, we’re manifesting an interruption free year so we can get out into the real world and meet as many of you as possible. Here are 5 CBD and cannabis events where you can expect to find the team flying the leafie flag.
Spannabis. Fira Centre, Barcelona, 11th – 13th March 2022
Arguably the OG of cannabis conferences, Spannabis returns in 2022 with another celebration of cannabis and its culture. Featuring hundreds of exhibitors from across the world, expect to see some of the biggest names in cannabis at this huge event. The event encompasses a business conference, public facing trade show and a cannabis cup. If that’s not enough there will be live music and performances from Friday – Sunday, all in the Spanish sunshine. What’s not to love?
420 2022. Everywhere! April 20th 2022
The history of 420 is as hazy as the cloud of smoke that rises above the crowd on this hallowed date. Expect a gathering of cannabis consumers, activists and campaigners across the UK on the 20th of April, as everyone comes together to celebrate cannabis on this magical date. While small 420 gatherings can be found in any sunny park across the country, London’s Hyde Park, Manchester’s Platt Fields Park and Glasgow Green all host sizable meetings with festival atmospheres. Bring weed, snacks and good vibes.
The CBD Show. London Olympia, April 22nd – 23rd 2022
The CBD Show is a showcase of some of the world’s best CBD products and experts. The event is split across two days, one open to the CBD industry and one day open to the general public. Expect trade stalls, talks and workshops as well as a good mix of keen consumers and industry leaders, this is the place to be if you’re looking to boost your CBD knowledge and connections.
World CBD Awards. Fira Centre, Barcelona, 12th – 15th July 2022
The 2019 edition of the World CBD Awards delivered a night of glitz and glamour in celebration of the hard work and innovation that goes on in the CBD industry. The event returns in 2022 with a 4 day event brimming with value for anyone and everyone in the industry. This year, the event travels to Barcelona for a B2B expo, networking events, conferencing and of course, the glamourous awards ceremony. Rumour has it the afterparty may have a special host this year…
Product Earth Expo. NAEC Stoneleigh, 19th – 21st August 2022
The Product Earth Expo is a celebration of CBD, cannabis, hemp and all things related. Product Earth was one of the few events that emerged from the ashes of 2021, putting on a fine celebration of the plant. Last year’s event had trade stalls from some of the industry’s leading innovators, fireside talks from experts and campaigners and hours of entertainment, including a skate park and live music. There really is something for everyone here.
