Capturing the marijuana moments at Hempfest

in hempfest •  3 years ago 

On August 19th, Seattle's Hempfest kicked off the 25th anniversary of the largest cannabis festival in the world. For three days, activists, vendors, authors/speakers, musicians and festival goers traversed the Seattle waterfront in celebration this multifaceted plant. From conversations about medicinal uses of the plant to stoner stand-up comedy, this festival appealed to just go about anyone who appreciates this multifaceted green leaf. For those who were unable to attend this year's Hempfest, here's some pics that capture the messages and mischief making of this protestival.

How high did you get? And if you try different strains, how can you tell what has what affect after the fourth or fifth one?


I brought my trusty cartridge pen with me (from CO2 Company) and used that primarily though I did exchange the pen with others to sample their wares. I prefer to try one strain at a time to assess the overall effects when possible. As I brought my THC cartridge (as opposed to a CBD one I have) and most of what I was gifted was more on the THC side, I had more of an head high versus the overall body buzz I get with CBD.
