The main stress is put on 4-5 subject matters, followed by brief debates taking place within smaller groups. Supporting programme includes tastings and a showcase of practical solutions, products and innovations concerning hemp.

  1. The potential of hemp, its multipurpose usage and innovative products;
  2. Hemp – from sowing to harvesting & and overall look at hemp varieties;
  3. The process of acquiring all needed documentation for growing hemp & subsidies;
  4. A presentation of Konopko Coop, the advantages of becoming a member, purchase of produce, trade mark and sales.

ADDITIONAL EXPERT SUBJECTS (depending on the location of a particular lecture)

  • Farmacological and therapeutic potential of cannabinoids + use in medicine
  • The significance of quality and safety control when speaking of hemp food products
  • The endocannabinoid system and active ingridients in hemp
  • Risks involved in the production and processing of hemp
  • Hemp and food

The second part of each event is in the form of round tables, a showcase of products and different tastings (groups are usually formed as food, textile, cosmetics, construction and farming).
Registrations are required for each of the events. Each of the attendees receives, alongside a vast array of knowledge and useful information, a package of hemp tea. For all of this we hope that a contribution of 5 EUR does not seem too high. Also, for all Konopko Coop members, students and professors (those that teach at the school where the lecture takes place) the lectures are free of charge.
