The Cape Town cannabis community will have its first networking event in two years when the city’s Cannabis Expo resurfaces after a two year break because of the Covid pandemic. The Cape Town Cannabis Expo will be held at Grand West Casino from Thursday 25 March to Sunday 28 March 2022 with tickets costing R150 if you pre-book and R200 at the door for a one day pass. VIP delegates who want to attend all four days – and have access to the Expo ‘after party’ will pay R990 for a pre-booking rate or R1 490 at the door.
International crowd-funding cannabis company Juicy Fields is the headline sponsor and the Expo will feature the JuicyFields Freedom Festival, which the press release says will be “the ultimate space for cannabis enthusiasts, providing a vibrant outdoor festival environment hosting popular bands, artists and DJs throughout the event”. There will be a private lounge where visitors will be able to consume cannabis legally.
