Hemp, cannabis fair comes to fairgrounds April 1-2

The Hemp & Cannabis Fair comes to the Oregon State Fairgrounds April 1 and 2.

It is an opportunity to learn about all things hemp and cannabis related including growing, harvesting, medicinal uses and legislation.

“Ask questions, learn about the newest products and technologies, find out what an extract is and how it works. A lot has changed, even just in the way we consume cannabis,” said Director Naomi Forkash.

“We have over 100 exhibitors, local vendors and national vendors. Everything from growing supplies to smoking accessories to processing tools,” Forkash said, “It’s a fun expo to go to.”

The event features two stages this year with experts on everything from legal issues to medical issues to ways you can grow and process, Forkash said. One of her recommended seminars is with Brian Michaels at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 1.

“He is one of the top marijuana attorneys in Oregon,” she said. “It’s a really great session for anyone who is maybe looking to start a cannabis business or to learn 'what can I do in my backyard?’ ”

There will be no smoke cloud to venture through. It’s a non-consumption event, meaning there is no smoking on site. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be dispensaries present.

“We are not a dispensary. You can’t purchase (marijuana) at the show,” Forkash said, “but lots of dispensaries are there and often will provide coupons for freebies at their shops. It’s a great way for attendees to find their next favorite dispensary.”

One of the best parts, said Forkash, is the price, which is $15 for the weekend, $10 for veterans (and $14 if you purchase online in advance)

The show is open to ages 21 and older or 18 and older with a medical marijuana card.
