Cannatrade History and Location 

Cannatrade cannabis fair was founded back in 2001 by Marco Kuhn who had the idea to make a cannabis trade fair for both businesses and customers. At the time, there was a loophole in Swiss laws that allowed hemp to be sold as long as it contained less than 0.3% THC..

In just a couple of days, the fair was huge and became known in Zurich, Bern, Basel, Lausanne and all across Switzerland. Things got even better in 2016 when an unnoticed change in the law allowed hemp with up to 1% THC to be sold. Since then, Cannatrade cannabis fair has grown even bigger, attracting local and international visitors from all over the globe.

So make sure to get your Cannatrade tickets asap and take a look at what the future of cannabis in Switzerland awaits.
