Nutrition will play a prominent role as a theme at FIBO. And there is currently no avoiding one trend in this segment: Cannabidiol – for short CBD. The Leading Trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health will feature it prominently.


CBD products can actively support sportspeople during training and competitions. In a dedicated area of Hall 5.2 FIBO 2022 – in cooperation with Behrentin Communication GmbH, the organiser of the CBD trade fair ‘The Body for Sport, Beauty, Wellness and Pharmaceutical Products’ – will therefore present this trending theme at the trade show from 7 to 10 April 2022.

CBD promotes fast muscle regeneration

Dieter Behrentin and his agency are the official organisers of the integrated CBD trade show THE BODY. He explains: “During sports muscles are strained and overstimulated. CBD and also other cannabinoids help promoting fast muscle regeneration as well as relaxation,” says Behrentin and adds: “Additionally, CBD can produce a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect on muscle tensions and inflammations in the body.” In Hall 5.2. visitors will therefore be able to find comprehensive information on the use and marketing opportunities as well as latest scientific findings.

Lifestyle Area Hall 5.2

In research, too, the numerous benefits of CBD are studied. In skincare CBD promotes natural skin regeneration and supports the body in restoring skin’s natural barrier. Furthermore, CBD promotes hair growth thereby making for a full and healthy head of hair. The benefits of CBD will be presented by Marco Hoffmann of Swiss Gate AG on 10 April, from 2.15 pm – 2.45 pm.
