It’s the time of the year again to witness live performances of artists in the Coachella Valley for the phenomenon music festival ‘Coachella’. Besides the celebrities scattered on the venue and lots of booze, you can also check out nearby dispensaries after the concert and try out intense strains to put you to dreamland in minutes.
No-Weed Policy of Coachella
You’re probably confused why Coachella Music Festival doesn’t allow marijuana despite the fact that California legalizes recreational use of weed. The answer is because Indio, the town that hosts the festival each year, has its own preferences and guidance when it comes to marijuana. The town kept a no-pot policy even though the rest of California legalizes it.
In addition, the music festival’s founder, Philip Anschutz opposed the legalization of recreational use, hence, no one should step into the venue with a stash on hand.
What you can do is to simply use weed after the concert and visit nearby dispensaries that offer top-quality stash and other marijuana products.
Dispensaries to Check Out
California is embedded with marijuana dispensaries in almost every street, since the policy on recreational use became loose. For first-timers, you want to check out places where you can be assisted properly on the best strains and products to get. Here are some dispensaries to head to:
Palm Springs Safe Access
Located near the airport, this place is completely sick. From the interiors to the collection of products meant for both medical and recreational use, it has almost everything. There is a waiting room and the shop is divided into counters to help customers do their business. The staff is well-curated about the products, so it’s easier to find something that suits for you.
Moreover, the place doesn’t intimidate first-timers at all because of the friendly ambiance and assistive staff.
A state-of-the-art dispensary unlike any other, this boutique is definitely a must-visit in the beautiful countryside. It’s not just a store but also offers online ordering and delivering of top-tier marijuana grown in California.
It’s also the place to visit to purchase unique cannabis accessories, CBD and THC products. Can’t get enough of the local strains? Check out the best-selling buds that will give you a one-of-a-kind experience.

Each year, the music festival has upgraded their security and if ever you are caught with something illegal, you’re in trouble. There are K9 and patrols circulating on the grounds and inspections are being done on the entrance points.

Here’s What to Expect at a Cannabis-Themed Wedding
The legalization of marijuana in many parts of the world including Canada and some states in the US gives many people the opportunity to incorporate the plant into many aspects of their lives. As a matter of fact, many individuals include cannabis in celebrations of important days such as Christmas, birthdays and even the observation of the Lent Season.
Last October 27, 2019, the Toronto Cannabis Wedding Expo was held and through this, we had a chance to glimpse of what a wedding of this kind will look like. Whether you are a bride or groom to be or simply a guest of one, below are some things that were observed from this unique wedding.
Cannabis-Themed Wedding- What to Expect
Gift Bags Full of Cannabis Products
Weddings would never be complete without a basket of goodie bags to give away. With numerous CBD products on the market, it’s not at all difficult to streamline your gift items to the people who’ll be attending your ceremony and reception. From beauty items to CBD oil edibles, there are now tons of options you can choose from.
You can even customize giveaways depending on the personality and preferences of your recipient. Friends who are bookworms can receive cannabis-related books, while those who love music can get marijuana-inspired records. This way, you can make sure they know that their presence and support on your day is well-appreciated.
Not everyone will be open to having marijuana in their respective venues. Although your state or region might uphold the legalization laws in place, not every venue will be as welcoming. Since regulations and restrictions on this plant are still being navigated, it might be best to choose a privately-owned venue. Better yet, get recommendations from your local dispensary. They might have partners who have contacts who can offer you a venue you might like.
With a cannabis-friendly venue, you can expect your reception site to decorated with cannabis-related décor. From earth-toned furnishings to ornamental plants to uphold the natural characteristic of marijuana, the reception will definitely be referring to the plant.
While weddings typically have an open bar until the wee hours of the morning, a cannabis-themed wedding entails having a full-blown budbar or a mini dispensary of sorts. Since these substances have intoxicating side effects, you may be asked to choose between serving alcohol and this plant.
Compared to alcohol, CBD products and cannabis-infused goodies may be seen as the better choice. Not only do these provide a laid-back and relaxing sensation, but these also provide a more communal experience which like-minded individuals can share with one another.
Before you set up your bar, it is important to keep in mind that THC and alcohol don’t mix well. Because of this, you might need to choose between marijuana or alcohol, or you can opt for a CBD reception complete with alcohol.
A Whole Lot of Fun
Apart from medical use, marijuana is also used for recreational purposes. Elevated towards a more sophisticated setting, like-minded individuals will surely have the time of their lives during this special day. Keep the celebrations going by sharing with other guests and by trying the different strains, that is, under the watchful eye and guidance of the event’s budtender.
Now that you know what you can expect from a wedding of this kind, you are surely excited about attending the ceremony of your plant enthusiast friends. Better yet, why not go ahead and plan your dream wedding by incorporating marijuana into the mix? This way you are sure that you, your partner and your friends will be able to celebrate the occasion complete with the goodness of this plant.

MMJ patients and enthusiasts alike will definitely enjoy getting a small marijuana surprise for every day up to Christmas eve. If you are interested in having one for the upcoming celebrations, here are some cannabis items you can include.
Plain Ol’ Flowers and Buds
Perhaps one of the most basic things you can stash into your calendar is a bunch of dried marijuana. You can also roll some joints or buy pre-rolled ones because what’s better than waking up to find a spliff waiting for you every day? This can definitely complete the day of every marijuana lover.
To spice things up, you can even place different strains of cannabis for each day, giving you the chance to try out different varieties every day! There are 779 strains or probably more out there, so you will definitely find the experience of picking the best ones exciting.
If you are looking to give some cannabidiol-infused products a try, then this is a great opportunity for you. Think of items that you would want to check out. Perhaps you have been wanting to see if that cannabis shampoo can help your hair get that healthy glow. You might also be curious about the effects of CBD topicals for your skin.
Take this holiday season as a chance to try out these products. With the medicinal effects of the cannabinoid, you can get positive outcomes with these items, depending on different factors that can vary the effects of the cannabinoid on your body.
You can choose from a lot of different products such as topicals (creams, lotions), oils, pills and even vape pens.
Aside from the items mentioned above, you can also buy edibles. These are easy and fun to consume, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Many companies have released their own line of cannabis-infused candies, from chocolates to gummy bears.
Those who are into baking might want to make some treats themselves. If you are concerned about complicated recipes, worry not because these are definitely easy to make. You just need the usual ingredients for, say, brownies combined with decarboxylated cannabis buds. Just keep in mind that cannabinoids and terpenes can evaporate so, cooking using the right temperature is vital.
With marijuana-filled advent calendars, you can definitely make your December much more exciting. What’s better is that these marijuana-filled calendars are also perfect as gifts. Just keep in mind that there are states that enforce strict rules against the plant, so make sure to verify if the receiver lives in a state in which such products are legal. Moreover, see to it that you keep these items out of the hands of minors as legal states only allow adults to handle such products.
