Cannabis is the future and the way out of the extended economic crisis. Misinformation, ignorance and social stigma give way to science, innovation and entrepreneurship.

BALKANNABIS EXPO is the culmination of years of effort in informing public opinion and policy makers in Greece. It is the result of a long-standing engagement in the commercial and production sectors of cannabis & hemp, in international exhibitions and activism, as well as advocacy and well-documented proposals for an integrated regulatory framework on cannabis & hemp that respect the users, patients, producers and entrepreneurs. We paved the way and now we will provide for the effective implementation of the new regulations.
