Another successful CfC event at the World Horti Center

Published on 16/03/2023

On the 14th of March, Cultivators, World Horti Center, and Vertify hosted the second event around the Cultivation for Compounds research consortium. After a welcome drink and a chance to catch-up, the session was kicked off by host Sonny Moerenhout with an update on the cultivation side of the consortium.

We had the honour of hosting Stuart Lambie, who gave an update on how Medicinal Cannabis Europe ( is pushing towards a harmonized regulatory framework surrounding medicinal cannabis, leading the way in ensuring fair access to patients.

Then, Thomas Rau gave us the latest ins and out about the Dutch coffeeshop experiment. After the coffee break, since we had a lively discussion, he continued his talk by giving a brief overview of cannabis legalisation in Germany.

Last but not least of the invited speakers we had Mexx Holweg, a PhD student at Wageningen University & Research. Mexx’s research is focused on the effects of light intensity and spectrum on the yield and chemical content of medicinal cannabis flowers. An interesting presentation giving us insight on the latest developments in Cannabis science!

Then, as a recurring topic, we had talks from some of the consortium participants, namely Enric Cordoba from Cannavigia and Emmanouela Alexopoulou from Grodan. After the talks there was another opportunity for networking with snacks and drinks.

Thanks to everybody that presented, we hope to see you all for the next event!
