#SharingLoveInSB recently hosted an informative workshop for wedding professionals. The afternoon consisted of a panel discussion about cannabis’ impact on the private and wedding event industry.
As legalization of recreational marijuana maneuvers thru California., cannabis-infused weddings (from bud bouquets to cannabis cakes) are gaining popularity and creating a buzz within the wedding industry. Respectively, due to the increase in planning cannabis infused weddings, new businesses are being established because of the emergence of the two things legal marijuana and celebrations / events.
Pre-panel discussion, guests mingled and nibbled at an innovative munchies bar created by Creative Services Catering. Goodies included maple glazed bacon, ginormous chocolate chip cookies, mac n’ cheese, popcorn, candy, chips and Twizzlers.
The Panel consisted of:
GrassFed - event "budbar" producers of cannabis themed pop up events and facilitators
Tina Fanucchi-Frontado, owner of KopSun - a cannabis education, information and health resource company for women
Liz Rogan of Liz Rogan and Associates - cannabis liaison, educator and advocate
Topics of discussion included:
What is happening in California vs the rest of the country
How we are seeing marijuana represented culturally now vs ten years ago…5 years ago
How is cannabis impacting events?
Tools for those who are unaware of state legalities and restrictions
Navigating the legalities and logistic of cannabis at special events
Ways to integrate cannabis into a couple’s special day
Incorporating marijuana and leaves into wedding florals, bouquets, decor and centerpieces
Infusing food with weed, how to legally serve it and the permitting needed
The number one take-away and piece of advice we received from our panel is:
There are a multitude of resources available and many people aren’t aware of how to maneuver and responsibly incorporate using herbs in their celebrations.
As the premier creator & producer of cannabis-themed events in California, our mission is to help de-stigmatize cannabis by offering sophisticated ways to enjoy its medical and recreational properties with like-minded individuals.
Our goal is simply to provide education and information, so you become confident and empowered to make the smartest choices for you.
