Looking for something to do this week other than sit on the couch? Go down the rabbit hole and get your 420 on! From elevated yoga to Cannabis Social’s Vegas night to compliancy workshops– there’s lots of opportunities to partake in the greenery. Here’s a list of the herbal happenings in SoCal that’ll immerse you in the blossoming, smoky community. Just remember: You must be at least 21-years-old to attend events (unless stated otherwise) and have a valid doctors recommendation. Oh, and don’t medicate and drive!
Pet Cannabis Day at MedMen
My Best Bud will be hosting LA’s first ever cannabis pet day today at the MedMens in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The event is geared toward animals and their cannabis needs. Like humans, animals (mammals) have endocannabinoid systems, meaning their bodies are designed to interact with cannabis. Their bodies, like ours, also naturally produce the same chemical cannabis triggers thanks to the endocannabinoid system. Pet parents will have the opportunity to speak with a My Best Bud representative, pick up samples and purchase products at a discount.
When: Friday, Dec 15 at 11am (Beverly Hills) and 3pm (West Hollywood)
Where: MedMen West Hollywood; 8208 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90046; and MedMen Beverly Hills; 110 South Robertson Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90048
Puff, Pass & Paint
This 2-hour Puff, Pass & Paint class supplies all you’ll need to get your pain on. Although the event is sponsored by Alchemy Vape Pens, the event is BOYC (bring your own cannabis) in order to comply with local laws. That said, this event is a consumption event, and it’s encouraged to bring your own so you can imbibe freely and get yourself into a creative zen space via herbal delights. Attendees will receive exact address of location after purchase of ticket to comply with local laws for consumption-friendly spaces. Non-refundable/non-transferable.
When: Friday, Dec. 15 at 7pm
Where: 604 W Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90015
Tickets: $49 (Click here for tickets)
Elevate, Explore, & Express
This is a cannabis-enhanced art and yoga workshop dedicated to self-exploration through cannabis ritual, restorative yoga, and intuitive art. You will be guided through a 75-minute cannabis-enhanced restorative yoga class. Through cannabis ritual, slowing down, and connecting with your breath, your awareness heightens to sensations and emotions that arise, allowing for non-judgemental introspection in a space where you will be lovingly supported. You will be rounded out of the practice with a grounding meditation before a blank canvas and paints are set up before you, providing an outlet for expression of this inner journey. By pairing cannabis and yoga with painting, you directly express the beauty of your own soul.
When: Saturday Dec. 16, at 6:30 pm
Where:Private Location in Mid City. Address given to ticket purchasers only.
