This June, London will play host to the first official European Cannabis Week, a series of events delving into all aspects of Europe’s emerging medical cannabis industries, the CBD boom and the politics and culture of this once controversial plant.

Taking place at various venues across the capital from 23rd to 29th June, speakers will discuss topics including politics, science, health, patient needs, advocacy, investment and culture while networking and enjoying the best the city has to offer.

European Cannabis Week will be the first major showcase of Europe’s emerging legal CBD and medical cannabis industries and the first major set of cannabis events in the UK since the government legalised medical cannabis. The series of events will take place against a backdrop of major global policy change, as a number of European governments overhaul the continent-wide moratorium on cannabis and WHO re-examines their position on medical cannabis.

While medical cannabis may be the hot topic at the moment, CBD is still firmly on the agenda, as the European Parliament looks at changing its legislation.

Alastair Moore, Co-Founder of European Cannabis Week explained the need for such an event:

 
Legislation in Europe is changing at a rapid pace and the private sector is evolving to serve the ever-growing demand for medical cannabis. Sixteen European countries have now legalised medical cannabis and with a total market of over 740 million people, Europe will become the largest value cannabis market in the world. European Cannabis Week will drive this growth, bringing together the people, brands and organisations that will shape the emerging European market
