Since the decriminalisation of weed, or dagga as many South Africans know it, in 2018, Capetonians have taken to the cannabis trend like wildfire. All over the Mother City, more and more cannabis-related products are popping up and now the city will be hosting its very own Cannabis Expo.

The Cannabis Expo is a global marketplace for education and innovative products and businesses serving and focused on all areas of the cannabis industry – medicinal, agricultural, financial, and lifestyle. Locals can visit GrandWest from April 4 to 7 to attend this particularly green event.

Friday and Saturday run from 10.30am to 8pm and Sunday runs from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The industry is exploding, and The Cannabis Expo provides the perfect platform for international and local medical health professionals, agricultural providers and lifestyle brands to engage with industry experts and the public on the topic of this versatile plant.

As the largest trade and consumer expo of its kind on the African continent The Cannabis Expo includes an exhibitor hall, networking and entertainment spaces as well as a Convention Stage that hosts experts from across the industry.

The multifaceted experience offered at the expo provides visitors with the opportunity to learn all there is to know about the herb. Get clued up on the laws around cannabis, how to get a grower’s permit, tools, lights and fertilisers needed to grow the best crops, the wide range of health benefits of cannabis, the vast business opportunities the cannabis industry has to offer, and much more.

Locals can put their knowledge to the test and make sure they’re within the confines of the law when it comes to their personal cannabis journeys.
