Vancouver is world class city when it comes to how easily we get our pot. Medicinal or recreational, we have access to top notch bud nearly round-the-clock 365 days a year. And we wear that badge with honour. But recently, I felt like the game stepped up with deluxe cannabis delivery.
Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributors Talya Hart and Bert Easterbrook for their coverage of the 2017 Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo.
This year, we as a family unit had the opportunity to attend the third annual Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo, held at the University of British Columbia (UBC). It was a big change in pace for us from the Global Marijuana March, which we have attended in years past.
Editor’s Note: This article was first published on July 31st, 2015 by CannaCure420. We share it now as a reminder of what community and culture-focused cannabis events should be. The 10th annual Great Canadian Glass Gathering (GCGG 2017) happens July 7-9th, 2017.
Friends kept asking if I’d be attending this year’s Great Canadian Glass Gathering (GCGG 2015). But I didn’t make my decision until two days before, when I bought a cheap tent and air mattress at Canadian Tire and immediately started packing.
The first Global Marijuana March was started by Dana Beal in New York, USA in 1998. It raised awareness both of the harms of prohibition throughout the world and how it should end. It has now grown to over 900 worldwide participating cities — as a festival in some places — and is celebrated by millions.
But not everyone lives in large cities. Sometimes your town doesn’t have a GMM. Sometimes you live in a place that isn’t pro-pot. What do you do then? Start your own community GMMs. I did … twice!
The East and West Kootenays in British Columbia have been at the forefront of craft cannabis growing for decades in Canada. With the new regulations ahead, what will they mean for this area and its growers?
The Kootenays and Craft Cannabis Growers
After a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, March 14th with our MP, Wayne Stetski (NDP), it was loud and clear that the regulations the Liberals are pushing forward will not work for this area.
Vancouver, BC, or Vansterdam as we affectionately call it around these parts, is a stoner’s dream to both live in and visit. That makes it a great city for Twelve High Chicks to host our M.O.M. Cup, February 24–26, 2017. You are coming to it, right?
Vancouver has an array of diverse lifestyles, but one of the common denominators is being chill; we don’t live to work, we work to live. Our landscape here — with mountains on one side and ocean on the other — is so beautiful with its beaches, rainforests, and beautiful architecture that it’s hard not to feel in awe of one’s surroundings. And our varied nightlife is full of art shows, craft beer, and alternative events.
It’s not a boring city, and there are a lot of novel things to do — particularly from a stoner’s viewpoint. Here are some stoner tips if you’re visiting Vancouver for the first time to attend the M.O.M. Cup … or are coming at any time.
This month, Twelve High Chicks invites you to read one of our more humble interviews, with Vancouver-based musician David Morin. David is a talented musician known for busking the streets of Vancouver and grabbing the attention of random strangers as his audience. While interviewing David Morin we talk about what his influences are, and what drives his passion to be both a street performer and a recording artist. I hope you enjoy this piece on this amazing up-and-coming Canadian musician.
We are born to be something of substance. We are born to discover the fires that dwell inside our hearts, and that shake our souls. While the webs of life trap us in the beats of time, our hearts yearn to soar. And we are likely to find our own substance when we learn to channel the energies that are bestowed upon us. Whether our substance finds us or we create it, that fire that dwells needs to burn in order to channel the path of where we need to journey.
In 2015 I wrote about the Kush Cup and the boat cruise with the Trailer Park Boys. This year I had plans to attend other events that weekend, so I was surprised when our editor asked me to write about the 2016 Kush Cup. But surprise quickly faded to a grin when she explained she only wanted me to write about judging Kush Cup 2016 weed. This was something I could do.
