CARLY MAYER

We are honoured to welcome Carly Mayer as a guest speaker at the Canna World Cup summit. 

Carly was the first person in the UK to receive a prescription for cannabis privately since the law change in 2018 and 

leads her own Amnesty, working with government organisations in the hope of converting this to an NHS prescription, setting precedent for other patients.

Having to give up her role Lecturing in the Arts, she discovered that cannabis was more effective than opioids in treating her fibromyalgia and post-stroke neuropathy.

Founder of Cancard, Carly has worked with the help of doctors to design an initiative backed by senior representatives of the Police Federation and made for patients. 

A contributing member to the Global Medical Cannabis Council, Carly is also a quintessential member of our PLEA Advisory Board.

We look forward to welcoming Carly to talk about her experiences, Cancard, patient choices, health, terpenes and the therapeutic benefits of growing medicine to help yourself.

OUTLAW SLIDE 5-01.png

OUTLAW

Outlaw is the UK's king of Cannabis. The Manchester-based anonymous figure, who conceals his identity beneath a black balaclava, is well known for his political activism, primarily surrounding the legalisation of cannabis and questioning the systems we live in.

 

International Press went crazy after he gave away free weed in Piccadilly Gardens and since then the unstoppable character has given away thousands of grams worth of cannabis, including sending it to NHS workers and driving around the city centre in a branded van during lockdown.

 

He also helps the public sue unlawful police and receive compensation, makes considerable donations to less fortunate children, families and refugees and encourages people to 'Overgrow the Government' whilst promoting his message 'The Government Hates You'.

DAVID MADILYAN

We are honoured to announce that David Madilyan will be speaking at The Canna World Cup summit.

ABOUT DAVID:

 

Creator of HQ brand and  president  of  one of the most famous and successful cannabis clubs in Spain. David Madilyan has seen his project flourish and grow for almost 8 years. With great strain, he has now positioned himself at the top of the pyramid of the cannabis scene in Europe. 

 

Born in Russia when it still was USSR, in Moscow but with Armenian blood. David was once an international law student that first took a chance in New York and in the year 2000 he changed the Big Apple´s cold buildings for sunny Barcelona.  

 

After years of working in the entertainment scene, he finally decided to turn his aspiration and dream into a reality and founded HQ. He did not want to open just a coffeshop, he wanted to create a close knitted community. And that is what HQ is today, need we reiterate one of our slogans? Family is the people you grow with.

 

ABOUT HQ:

For those out of the loop, HQ represents a modern cultural experience; a blend of friends, music, art, fashion, and cannabis. Defined as a place of extreme beauty, delight, and happiness, HQ serves as the foundation for a unique way of life with a strong emphasis on collaboration and experimentation.

This ethos has made it possible for David to build a close-knit and world-famous family that keeps getting bigger and better every year.

 

Since its inception, HQ has been committed to innovation and development of cannabis extractions. That’s why HQ Labs/Babushka Farms boasts a professional in-house team, working in state of the art facilities to provide a high-quality end product for all members.

Specializing in solvent-less techniques, the laboratory consists of a full equipment zone for Ice Water Extraction and Live Rosin.

 

HQ hashmaking team’s perseverance and non-compromising attitude has been directly responsible for their recent incredible achievements in the industry. HQ has previously won first prize for “Best Rosin” at Spannabis’19, II Fresh Cup 2016, Cannabis Association M.F. 2015 and 2016, DAB-A-DOO 2016 , THC Valencia VI Edition, and Herbes del Dimoni Balearic Cup in both 2015 and 2016. HQ also won runner-up prizes at the Elite Cup Public BCN 2017 & Elite Cup 2017 Rosin competitions, as well as the Bio Cup 2016 (solvent-less category).

 

MASTERS OF ROSIN 

 

The first edition of Masters of Rosin, an event and competition created for international cannabis aficionados took place in March, 2018. Concurrent with Spannabis, this annual event sets precedent and forms part of Europe´s most prestigious week for the cannabis industry.  We are anxiously awaiting for the next, fourth edition.

 

The standards of the event are high. The methodology is completely transparent, and vigilantly organized when picking judges, participants and measuring results. This event only engages relevant industry personnel, in other words only professional judges can evaluate and vote.  

 

Competitors have the chance to enter in only one voting category: Rosin. Their samples are meticulously analyzed by worldwide professional judges. And on the awards ceremony the number one winner receives the Golden Iron valued at 3000 Euros.
