Saturday, February 24th, the MaD Strains crew is at Barcelona airport to take off for Mallorca in the Balearic Island , to celebrate the 5th cannabis fair “Herbes del Dimoni” and the Balearic cup.
The flight was magical between sky, cloud and sea, facing the sunrise. We take time to enjoy the first part of the day to visit the island a little. In view of the uncertain and cold meteo we chose to make a road trip in the mountains to see the beautifull landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana.
After these few hours of trip, we went to the cannabis fair. The place was charming, it is in a old farmhouse with orange trees, peacocks and sheeps everywhere. Here for the first time we met the kindly Herbes del Dimoni crew. Thanks for everybody we met on this day, bless to every one.
After a short night, we went back to the “Herbes del Dimoni” fair.
Juan Peralta Ramirez of GEA Biopharma was making a show of his molecular gastronomy with hemp flour, hemp seeds, terpen extracts and cannabinoïdes. He also proposed edibles to Cherry Haze Medibles.
We also had the chance to attend at two conferences :
- Karulo Abellan the founder of BCN Seeds, Best Cannabis Natural Seeds. He is one of the first Catalan cannabis activist, particularly known for having opened the first growshop of Barcelona (L’interior) and taking a part in the creation of the Cañamo Magazine. Also it was the first one in selling seeds of marijuana in Spain. This was a really great speech in posthumous tribute to Gregorio Fernández – Goyo, full of stories from the begening of the activism in the cannabis community in Spain and Europe. We really enjoy listening to those moments of history ! Thank you Karulo !
- In a second time, Nicolas trainerbees from Canna Honey was teaching us about the bees and his work for training them to use resine of cannabis in the process to making honey. This honey contains terpen and canabinoïdes. There is only one guy on earth that successfully achieve this miracle. At the end of his speech we had the pleasure to test his canna honey and we can tell you that we never experienced something like that ! Thanks again to Nicolas !
For the lunch, there was two big paella one classic and the other vegan literally all green. On the spot it was also proposed copious and delicious hamburger, desserts, smoothies and great coffee.
In the afternoon there have been an auction for a work of art parafernalia made by goodsmookaglass.
At 5pm, begening The Balearic Cup.
Stay tuned ! We talk about it in our next article!
