  • Cannabis Farmers Support Local Parks Campaign
    17:00-19:00
    2018-08-01

    Hosted by Justice Grown California and 421 Group

    Wednesday, August 1 at 5 PM – 7 PM PDT

    Cleveland Ave, Santa Rosa, CA 95401, United States

    We are excited to announce that Justice Grown and the 421 Group are teaming up to raise money and organize volunteers from the cannabis industry for the park’s campaign, the 1/8th cent sales tax on the November ballot that will benefit parks for ALL! Join us at the parks first big supporters meeting next Wednesday August 1st to review next steps and sign up to volunteer.

    Cannabis farmers and industry advocates by and large support parks and open spaces. Historically, the cannabis industry has not participated in politics. That is different now. As we secure permitted operations we become the public donors to important community needs. Agricultural farms are part of what protect open spaces, and often, over time become dedicated to open space.

    The cannabis industry is proud to do our part for the community! Please contact Shivawn Brady or the 421 Group, if you are ready to donate time and or money to this campaign.

    Thank you!

  • 2nd Annual North Coast Wine & Weed Symposium
    07:30-16:45

    Thursday, August 2 at 7:30 AM – 4:45 PM PDT

    170 Railroad Street, Santa Rosa, California 95401

    The legalization of recreational cannabis use will undoubtedly have an impact on the wine industry, but how? In what ways might the two industries work together, and where could conflicts arise? Can the two industries learn for each other and establish a dialogue?

    The 2nd Annual North Coast Wine & Weed Symposium will address those questions and more. Topics will be focused on new rules and regulations, discussing the potential impact of canna-tourism on wine as well as highlighting collaborative opportunities between the two industries, like wine and cannabis events. In addition, this year will feature dedicated sessions for cannabis industry attendees to learn from their wine counterparts, specifically on direct to consumer marketing as well as distribution strategies and distributor management.

    The conference will feature experts from both industries along with 40 tabletop exhibitors and will include breakfast, a beautiful outdoor lunch buffet, specially prepared by the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country Chef. Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in a special end-of-day networking social featuring local wines.

  • The True Taxonomy of Cannabis
    18:00-20:00

    Hosted by Oregon’s Finest

    Tuesday, August 21 at 6 PM – 8 PM PDT

    736 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, Portland, Orego

    Next up in the Oregon’s Finest Education Series:
    The True Taxonomy of Cannabis with Emma Chasen
    Join us August 21st from 6-8pm at Oregon’s Finest MLK for an in-depth look at the true taxonomy of the cannabis plant. The purpose of this course is to map Cannabis history, so that we may further understand Cannabis species differentiation. Students will explore the Hemp vs. Cannabis distinction and gain an understanding of all major taxonomic differences and traits specific to Cannabis Sp. This is to prepare students for a deeper discussion of the Cannabis species, Indica and Sativa.
    Emma Chasen has a mission to educate people on the science behind Cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing. After graduating from Brown University in 2014 with a degree in Medicinal Plant Research, Emma went on to coordinate Clinical Oncology trials with the Brown University Oncology Research Group. When her supervisor refused a Cannabis trial in favor of another expensive pharmaceutical drug, Emma quit and headed across the country to Portland, OR. She found her way to Farma, the popular Portland dispensary that takes a more scientific approach to Cannabis; rejecting the Indica/Sativa binary and instead focusing on chemotypes to determine effect. She began her career at Farma as a budtender and was quickly promoted to General Manager and eventually to Director of Education. In this role she was able to focus on educational efforts and create a robust training curriculum that focused on cannabis science, product knowledge and empathetic patient care. Emma is now a cannabis industry consultant and helps brands develop educational marketing collateral and educational programs to further elevate their brand presence in a competitive industry. She also helps struggling cannabis businesses with business organization and sets them up for success in the competitive adult use market. Emma continues to seek ways to spread cannabis education through consulting, writing, speaking and teaching.

    Emma Chasen was recently named Portland’s Best Budtender of 2016 and featured in Newsweek, MG Magazine, Forbes, High Times Magazine, The Centennial, The Oregon Leaf and Teen Vogue for her work with cannabis education. She is also a regular guest on many cannabis focused podcasts and has been featured on television for her ability to explain scientific concepts around cannabis in a way that is accessible and helpful to the general public. Her mission is to educate people on the science behind Cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing as well as to address the need for training and education of budtenders, medical professionals, and the general public.

    CHECK IN BEGINS AT 5:30, THE CLASS WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 6:00PM.

    What to bring to the class:

    Valid ID verifying that you are 21+
    A notepad and pen for taking notes
    Your love for cannabis!
