We were there again: Spannabis 2016 in Barcelona

Like every year in March, Europe's biggest Cannabis-Fair took place again underneath the sun of Spain in the exhibition halls of Fira de Cornellá. On 17.000 sqm, over 200 exhibitors presented themselves concerning the subject Cannabis and surrounding issues like grow, industrial hemp, hemp as building material and naturally everything dealing with the consumption of cannabis. 35.000 visitors and the halls were periodically heaving.
We were there with a big booth presenting a part of our popular home brands 'Black Leaf' and 'Blaze'. As fun-action at the booth: duck fishing. The (children's) game enjoyed great popularity. Instant wins at score could be seized as well as extra-tickets for the mega tombola in the evening. At this occasion, exclusive first prizes were raffled: a set consisting of our Möbius bong, a Dreampeace grinder and on top a complete kit for oil extraction from the company Dexso.
With a lot of cheerfulness, our Near Dark team has rocked the fair again this year.

Extraction without danger of explosion – very simple for example with the 'rosin press' from 'Black Leaf'! With the so called 'Rosin Tech', finest oil for dabbing can be extracted from herb buds and remains completely without explosive gases and chemical solvents. You only need this 'Rosin Press': the buds are laid in baking paper and after that with a temperature of 180° C pressed as strongly as possible until the thick concentrate, the so called rosin, is extracted from the herbs. Due to the heat and the pressure, the rosin is separated from the bud material and collected on the backing paper. The process can be repeated two to three times with the same filling (depending on the potency). After cooling down, it is scraped off the backing paper (preferably with a special nonstick dabbing tool) and voilà:

Time to dab!
