CannaBlogger’s Corner Episode 22: 4/20 VIP Farmer’s Cup Judges Sesh

I hope everyone enjoyed their highest of holidays last week. Welcome to a special edition, special edish, if you will, episode of CannaBlogger’s Corner. I’m going to guess you’re like me in that you celebrate 4/20 the whole week, or at least again on 4/22 (because 4/22 is 4/20, too). That’s what I did this year when I was asked to attend The Gentleman Gorilla’s VIP Farmer’s Cup Judges Sesh on April 22. Some of the SoCal Cannabis Industry’s finest were on hand, and I got to chat with some of them. 

Our host and prior guest on CannaBlogger’s Corner, Greg, The Gentleman Gorilla, gives us a perspective on his event and how it came together.

Bestselling author and founder of Cannabis Synergy JM Balbuena talks about what she’s been up to lately as well as which was the best ride at Hershey Park (the Sooper Dooper Looper, obv).

Duane from Boycott Shitty Weed was tending the dab bar, where we got to sample the five concentrate entries in this year’s Farmer’s Cup. I can’t tell you what brands we sampled (because we don’t know), but there was some fire on hand. We all loved #5 from the gate, but #2 was a sleeper hit, giving us a stronger high than we were expecting. And it was very citrusy.

Finally, I got to chat with Ashley about her Luna Wild clothing line. Her India-inspired jackets and robes explode with color. Each item is beautifully and carefully hand-made by former victims of sex trafficking in Mumbai.

I also got to run into Amy and Seth (The Nugget Nerds), Janet from Chingona Cakes, Yani, the Hazey Lioness, and so many other good friends from the industry but didn’t get the chance to sit down and record with them (this time). 

Thanks once again to The Gentleman Gorilla for hosting an amazing event. I’m very much looking forward to the next one.
