Thailand will host the first Ganja Festival in the world on January 2020

Thailand’s Ganja Festival serves as a discussion platform on Medical cannabis benefits and generating trade opportunities in the industry to boost Thailand’s economic growth.

Here are the details of the festival:

  • Date: 29th January - 2nd February 2020
  • Venue: Nong Yat Reservoir in the northeastern province of Nakhon Phanom

In December 2018, Thailand legalized the medical use of marijuana seeing the distribution of Thai-produced marijuana to state hospitals and government healthcare recipients.

Due to supply shortages, marijuana was only available for the severed condition patients:

  • Late-stage cancer
  • Parkinson’s
  • Drug-resistant epilepsy

However, with the recent plantation of 12,000 cannabis seedlings at Maejo University in Chiang Mai, 2 more metric tons of the herb will be available by February to the less critical patients:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Stress

Gen. Charan Kullawanit, an advisor to the festival, told reporters:

“We’ll invite different countries to exchange academic ideas and opinions so we’ll be able to see how medical cannabis will benefit the global community.”
