Yet another great event I was fortunate enough to go to courtesy of Hightimes, they provided Hail Mary Jane with 2 VIP passes! So being the Cali bound writers of HMJ, Doodette420 and I took the San Francisco Medical Cannabis Cup by storm. After going through a quick patient verification process we were off to the outdoor 215 area where every imaginable cannabis infused product was available for sampling.
Harborside Health Center had a very nice hash bar set up for patients to medicate for free, early on in the event they had foot soldiers handing out wooden tokens with Jack Herer’s face on one side and the Harborside logo on the other. They were kind enough to let people keep these cool keepsakes which also meant more free hash bar visits!
High Standards was one of the many collectives handing out free vape hits to anyone stopping by their booth. There was definitely no shortage of herb, in fact I had brought some of my own, but because there was so much free high quality herb/drinks/treats going around, I didn’t have to bust out my stash nearly as often as I have at past events.
On the opposite end of the 215 area, Elemental Wellness had a game going on where you are given a name tag with the name of a strain and you have to find the person with your matching strain. I had the strain Excite but unfortunately I didn’t find my match. On Sunday Doodette420 found her match! The really trippy part was that her match was also at the Cup from the Los Angeles area, I believe his name was Jason. He was at the Cup networking for Med-Fresh and gave us some free samples that I’ll be trying out and posting a separate review. Elemental Wellness was also giving out medicated slushies as well as medicated cotton candy, that was the first time I’ve seen/eaten cannabis cotton candy and boy was it tasty!
Like other events, the indoor portion was filled with vendors who want to sell you everything else cannabis related including; pipes, grow set ups, cannabis insurance, clothing, stash bags and much much more. They also had a section of the expo designated for the various seminars that where going on through out the day.
At 7 pm they started closing down the main expo and corralling people out so that they could clean up for the next day. The VIP after party started at 8 pm on the opposite side of the building. Now I had left the expo a little bit early to go down to a brand new collective that opened up in San Jose called The Treehouse, where another party was getting ready to pop off. Saturday was Coral Reefer’s (you might remember her MJotM appearance) birthday and what better way to celebrate than at a dispensary? The Treehouse has a full 360 degree hash bar/vape lounge along with an in house deli and karaoke setup.
After chillin at The Treehouse for a bit I headed back to San Francisco for the VIP afterparty/concert featuring; Real One, Rocker T, Irie Dole, Junior Reid and Curren$y Spitta. The Kottonmouth Kings were listed to be there too but at the end of the night everyone found out they were a no show. On Sunday I talked with one of the Hightimes staff members to see what was up, and apparently Hightimes couch locked The Kottonmouth Kings with some waxy nail hits. There is a TON of footage on our YouTube page from the show. At the end of the show (which went until midnight) Cali Connection had huge bags of joints that they threw out to the crowd, I ended up walking out of the expo with 11 joints that I didn’t walk in with!
Sunday was another great day, there wasn’t anything else going on during the day but that evening was the award ceremony. Lenny posted the results of who won what and I have a bunch of video from the ceremony that I am still in the process of uploading. All in all The Hightimes San Francisco Medical Cannabis Cup was a great event and I look forward to seeing what they’ve got lined up for next year.
