2017 Denver Cannabis Wedding Expo Recap

Love and Marij – Photo by Danielle Lirette

The 2017 Denver Cannabis Wedding Expo was a blast! Love and Marij is proud to be a cornerstone of this wonderfully executed event. We caught up with vendors already listed on our site and met new creative businesses we hope to work with as well. The energy of the crowd was un-missed. It seemed attendees and vendors alike were raising their eyebrows together at the bud-ing industry of cannabis weddings!  With delicious food and drink samples, exciting displays of craftsmanship, beautiful decor, and cannabis-themed… everything, it was hard to nail down our favorites!

Here are the top eight most intriguing vendors/displays of the day:

 

  1. Transportation
Inside the My 420 Tours Bus

My 420 Tours and High End Transportation were running shuttle busses back-and-forth from the Mineral Light Rail Station to the Expo all day. Although there was no consumption allowed inside the event itself, attendees could take rides on the shuttle buses for opportunities to consume their cannabis and socialize with other attendees. With long cushion seats, stylish interior lighting, and complementary smoke tools, you had no trouble feeling at home on the busses.

 

  1. My Bud Vase

At first glance, the My Bud Vase booth seemed like they were selling beautiful vases with bursting flower arrangements coming out of each of them. Only with further inspection, however, did the down stems and bowl pieces attached to them come into view. These beautiful and discreet water pipes are perfect for table centerpieces, gifts, or for sitting on your nightstand. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and even have modified whiskey decanters (featured).

 

  1. Aspen Canyon Ranch

On 450 acres of beautiful private property, you could have the cannabis wedding of your dreams! Aspen Canyon Ranch offers all-inclusive wedding packages for up to 100 guests. The packages include full use of the property, lodging, indoor & outdoor event spaces, event coordinator, outdoor activities, flatware, glassware, tables & chairs, and much more for very reasonable prices. Bringing more than 100 guests? They have additional accommodations and endless amounts of camping space for everyone.

 

  1. The Green Solution Bud

The Green Solution -a dispensary with thirteen locations in Colorado- brought along their friendly mascot, The Green Solution Bud, to help pass out their awesome 20% off online coupons. The Bud was more than happy to take selfies with attendees and vendors alike. Love and Marij even snagged the Bud for a sesh in our photo booth by Flashbox.

 

  1. GroundSwell

GroundSwell, a self-proclaimed “cannabis boutique,” is now offering boutique cannabis wedding end event services. Have a guided, educational visit to their dispensary for groups up to 30 with a prefixed menu for selection. Purchase cannabis gift bags with concierge services for selection. Hire concierge services for cannabis event catering.

 

  1. Imagicka

This troupe of magical performers offers a large variety of stunning cannabis themed entertainment for your wedding or event. They offer acts such as burlesque, contortion, stage magic, cabaret, silk aerialists, and much more. One of Imagicka’s beautiful performers was decked out in a glittering bright green burlesque cannabis-esque dress with a matching headpiece.

 

  1. Steepfuze Coffee

This coffee company specializes in creating CBD infused coffee beans. At the expo, Steepfuze was handing out free samples of their brewed regular CDB-infused coffee and their CDB-infused chocolate-orange-ginger coffee. The regular tastes like normal coffee; you would never know the difference. The flavored coffee was a delicious twist on the natural coffee flavor. Both were delicious and an ingenious way to get your daily CBD in the morning.

 

  1. Repurposed Petals

Think of Repurposed Petals as your GREEN after-party flower cleanup crew. The team goes in after your wedding and collects every flower, leaf, and petal left over. They ensure the wilted flowers go to compost piles and the pristine ones get rearranged and donated to your community (think nursing homes, hospitals, or community centers). This way, none of your expensive flowers go to waste and you get to write it off as a donation on your taxes!

 

The 2017 Denver Cannabis Wedding Expo was so much fun! We can’t wait for the next two in Portland on March 26th and San Francisco on April 30th.

ABOUT THE EVENT:

Finding love isn’t easy (especially in Denver) and it’s even more complicated when cannabis is part of your life.

We’re creating the type of event that Cannabis Friendly Singles have been waiting for.

This time around, let cannabis help you connect you with like minded singles while enjoying a breathtaking rooftop setting over looking the mountains with the freedom for those 21+ years old to recreate with cannabis in comfort.


WHY CANNABIS?

The Singles Speakeasy is a cannabis friendly workshop and mixer hosted by Life Coach and Dating Expert, Molly Peckler, of Highly Devoted Coaching, and Love and Marij.

Once guests arrive and begin to mingle while enjoying products from our sponsors, Molly will lead a workshop about dating efficiently, and the power of connecting over cannabis. After the workshop, guests can relax and enjoy the romantic rooftop, spark a conversation over at Healthy Headie’s VIP Experience or Top Shelf Budtending’s beautiful Bud Bar, and put the lessons learned in the workshop to work.

We’ll culminate the evening with a few surprises, and hopefully several new connections will have sparked before the night is over. All guests will receive gift-bags stuffed with love from some of our favorite companies.

About the Event:

Finding love isn’t easy (especially in Los Angeles) and it’s even more complicated when cannabis is part of your life.

Molly will kick off the night by leading a brief, yet powerful workshop so you can make the most of your time at the event, and learn lessons that can be applied in any social situation long after the evening ends. Get into the right frame of mind and gain the tools to confidently connect with others, and quickly analyze whether or not someone would be a compatible partner.

After the workshop, let Molly help you form connections over Cannabis Friendly ice-breakers, and put the new tools you’ve gained to work. We’ll culminate the evening with a more relaxed after-party vibe, and hopefully several new connections will have sparked before the night is over.

Molly Peckler, Host of the Singles Speakeasy and Founder of Highly Devoted

Throughout the evening guests will enjoy tasty snacks by The Herbal Chef as well as many other surprises. All guests must have active California medical cannabis recommendations. Presto Doctor will be on hand to answer your medicinal cannabis questions and consult with any guests who may be looking to see if they qualify for a medicinal cannabis recommendation. At the end of the evening, all guests will receive gift-bags stuffed with love from some of our favorite California cannabis companies.

Aunt Sandy’s Medical Marijuana Cookbook
www.medmarijuanacookbook.com/

Medical edibles have come a long way since the infamous pot brownies that were consumed with crunchy, awful-tasting leaves and stems.

Aunt Sandy’s Medical Marijuana Cookbook is a collection of recipes by cooking instructor, Sandy Moriarty, who is a professor at Oaksterdam University in Oakland Ca.

Oaksterdam University has pioneered training for jobs in the booming marijuana industry. The cookbook is retro in design and content, reminiscent of classic Betty Crocker-type comfort foods.Some of Sandy’s favorites include mac and cheese, spicy buffalo wings, and scalloped potatoes.

The book visually demonstrates and reveals the process for creating Sandy’s 10x Cannabutter. It includes 40 easy-to-prepare, delicious dishes from her signature dessert, Blue Sky Lemon Bars, to the Dizzy Bird Turkey with Stuffing for a festive holiday dinner. The book updates some of the classics with low-calorie, vegetarian, vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free options. Each individual’s potency level is different. The author teaches how potency can be adjusted by the amount of plant material used in the butter, oil or tincture. The American Medical Association has now recognized the medical value of marijuana and the federal government has provided medical marijuana to selected medical patients for many years.

Aunt Sandy’s passion for comfort style food, therapeutic cooking, and her perfected infusion processes have led her to become Oaksterdam University’s Cooking Instructor. Her class is about learning, improving, and refining the different forms of cannabis infusions while cooking and exploring delicious home-made recipes. Learn creative cannabis infusion methods and how to start creating your own! Upon completion of this course, students will be ready to prepare their own cannabis infused meals, treats, and drinks! *Food samples for demonstration and educational purposes only
