The Weedkend, Xixón cannabis fair, is holding its 4th edition – one of the biggest Spanish cannabis events (Gea Seeds can’t miss it); every skilled grower has to visit this fair and enjoy an event full of good smokes, excellent atmosphere and a beautiful, historical, coastal town: from Saturday, June, the 9th (18:00-5:00 h.) to Sunday, June, the 10th (12:00-21:00 h.) there’s a must-attend event.
Asturies, greener than ever!
Xixón has an excellent geographical location – north coast of the peninsula, on the Cantabrian coast; known as the Green Coast capital, this incredible town provides mountainous landscapes, such as Cantabrian Mountains, and enjoyable beaches – Cantabrian Sea: if this natural experience meets one of the best current cannabis fairs, the result’s an explosive combination to satisfy the most demanding sybarites.
Generally, this event’s organized by cannabis association CISCA (Cannabis Interior Social Club Astur); in 2015, they organized Asturcannabis – small event for local growers: public feedback was so big that, in 2016, the event was renamed as The Weedkend – national cannabis fair.
The Weedkend brings the most experienced national growers, brands, associations, cannabis competitions, debates, talks on activism and legislation, good music and, undoubtedly, good weed.
