We have the pleasure to welcome you to CannaTrade, the oldest hemp fair in Europe! The history of CannaTrade started 2001, in the fair halls of BEA Expo Bern, as a result of the Swiss Hemp Days in 1999 and 2000. The following editions of CannaTrade in 2008 and 2009 were presented at the exhibiton halls of Basel. Caused by the hemp related political situation, we decided to organize the fair CannaTrade in a two-years-rhythm. Until 2016, we did this successfully at Stadthalle Dietikon/Zurich.

The next edition of CannaTrade takes place in the middle of Zurich!

In 1999 the first Swiss Hemp Days took place in Ittigen (Bern), in the following year the hemp days were presented in Biberist CH. The history of CannaTrade started 2001, in the fair halls of BEA Expo Bern, as a result of these Swiss Hemp Days. The editions of CannaTrade in 2008 - 2010 were presented in the exhibiton halls of Basel. Until 2016, we organized the fair in a two-years-rhythm at Stadthalle Dietikon/Zurich. The turn of political events, especial in the USA, raises hope again for a soon (?!) ending of the repression and thereby a new chance for CannaTrade to bloom like in "good old times"...It stays exiting, anyway!
The management of the fair gives all visitors advice to use the public transport. A positive aspect of public transport is certainly that you may drink one or two beers without getting in trouble...
Dogs are welcome at the fair. But we give advice to keep the dogs in the outdoor area Summer in the City. This space is certainly more comfortable…

Hall Plan
Coming July 2017.
Hemp is one of the eldest useful plants on earth. The Chinese are cultivating hemp for more than 10'000 years. The hemp plant is relatively easy to grow, doesn't need any pesticide, furthermore, it is an ameliorant.

Hemp on the fields, save the woods. Refering to an equal area, the annual hemp plant is four to five times more effective in the paper production than trees. Caused by the enormous strength of the fiber, hemp paper can be receycled far more often than wooden paper.

Furthermore, hemp produces two to three times more fibers than the cotton plant, but without any pesticide. 50% of the total used pesticide are for the cotton growing. We have finally to stop this contamination of earth and groundwater.

Hemp seed is far more nutritious than even soybean, contains more essential fatty acids than any other source, is second only to soybeans in complete protein (but is more digestible by humans), is high in B-vitamins, and is 35% dietary fiber. Hemp seed is not psychoactive and cannot be used as a drug. Hemp seed oil may be nature's most perfectly balanced oil. It contains an ideal 3:1 ratio of omega-6's [linoleic acid] to omega-3's [alpha-linolenic acid] for long-term use, and provides the omega-6 derivative gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Hemp can be used in many ways, like no other plant i.e. as biomass or as isolation and building material. Regional and hemp based circular flow economies in connection with solar energy may help to stop the climate warming.

Hemp is last but not least one of the eldest elixir and intoxicant in the human history. Hemp is an effective medicine against seizures, sickness, stress and so many more diseases. In addition, hemp is one of the less toxic plants and nowadays, the best studied drug worldwide.

Hemp could stop the intoxication of the population through harmful medicine. The turn to sustainable agriculture will be impossible without this precious plant. A complete rehabilitation of hemp, the useful plant No. 1, is overdue. Natural resources, water and the sun provide with all we need.
Identity Check
Please keep your ID-Card with you, there will be identity checks during the fair (protection of minors). Thanks for your comprehension.
