The main objective set by the organizers of the WORLD HEMP CONGRESS Slovenia 2012 | 2013 | 2014 Lendava, Slovenia is to connect highly qualified experts in the field of hemp and to educate as well as raise awareness among the worldwide public. Another of the objectives is to encourage development and gather GLOBAL HEMP INNOVATIONS in the fields of HEMP MATERIALS/HEMP PRODUCTS/HEMP TEHNOLOGY/MEDICAL CANNABIS PRODUCTS/HEMP FOOD PRODUCTS etc., in order to promote the use of hemp throughout the world and remove the stigma being placed on this wonderful plant, which provides humankind with a wide range of healthy products and the possibility for a rapid soothing of the climate change.


With the WORLD HEMP CONGRESS Slovenia 2012 /13 we have for the first time in the history connected the world's population and experts on the respective field with the objective of raising awareness and encourage research, development, cultivation, processing and use of hemp and its’ products. The money raised is intended to support further development of innovations, development of the hemp branch, international professional education and above all the establishment of the Project European Technology Development Centre of the Industrial Hemp, its’ introduction to operation in the framework of social entrepreneurship.

The WORLD HEMP CONGRESS – Slovenia premiered in 2012 and had the audience of more than 12.400 viewers via electronic connections worldwide from 36 countries all over the world. We proudly hosted numerous heads of state, Nobel laureates, many from the world of celebrities, experts in the field of production and processing of hemp and the general public.

The WORLD HEMP CONGRESS 2013 was broadcast via LIVESTREAM to more than 17 million viewers from at least 72 different countries around the world. The viewers and participants were able to learn more about the opportunities and drawbacks of cannabis. The subject was presented in six thematic sections. At the WORLD HEMP CONGRESS in 2013, the HEMP GLOBAL INNOVATION competition was introduced for the first time. We have also joined the global project – Breaking The Taboo and 24 Earth Hour, this way attempting to climb insurmountable mountains on our journey to achieving our goals in the field of cannabis worldwide.

Thank you once again to all WHC visitors, speakers, sponsors and partners. A special thanks goes to the WHC team. 

We enable inclusion of the world's most prominent hemp experts into an event broadcasted via LIVESTREAM thus providing a platform for active participation and cooperation in the event around the world.

In the framework of a diverse program we are going to select the winner of the GLOBAL HEMP INNOVATIONS of the WORLD HEMP CONGRESS 2014 in the fields of technology and food. Participants are going to be given the opportunity to participate in many instructive lessons, form business contacts, to discuss various opportunities and challenges in the respective field and much more.

This year we hope for the attendance of many Heads of State and their working teams in order to encourage the alignment of legislation, to jointly seek solutions for unreasonable laws on drugs and complex climatic conditions of our wonderful planet Earth.

Call for Abstracts and Call for Global Hemp Innovation are already published therefore we refer any interested individuals and legal entities to have a look at it.

We hope to see many familiar and new faces at this years’ WHC.
