Growing your mind

Expogrow is a different cannabis fair. You don’t come to Ficoba just to buy or to sell, you come to grow… relationships, the knowledge and the critical awareness.

One of the pillars of this cannabis date has always been the previously named International Cannabis Forum and, since 2017, named CANNABIS BOX FORUM in order to reach better to the assistants but keeping it’s content quality.

We are looking forward to see you there!!

Organized by Expogrow and FUNDACIÓN RENOVATIO.

Cannabis Box Forum Coorganizer

Fundación Renovatio

Foundation Renovatio racks up an extensive experience in the management of collectives of cannabis users with the main objective of supporting all the participants in these regulative processes by providing them useful tools which contribute to a more coherent and complete regulation.

This project takes place in the face of the necessity  of going into the normalization of Cannbabis from a scientific perspective, with a serious focus on the public health.

Using that as a basis, one intends to realize suggestions based on the perspectives of the civilian population for contributing to new points of view of the drug policy. In this case it concerns mainly the regularization of the associations of cannabis users initiated in 2011 in the Basque Parliament.
