Event Recap: Danksgiving 2016
Oregon Leaf celebrated fall and Cannabis with dank giveaways and plenty of medicated Thanksgiving fun! Photos by Daniel Berman.
Danksgiving returned for a second helping this year in Portland with a whole new look and a ton of fun surprises for attendees. This year’s event was split into two portions: a general public session and a pot industry session.
Both events were three hours long and completely free to those who registered in advance. With over 300 attendees per session, the air at the venue was thick with smoky cheer as patrons celebrated the joy of Danksgiving.
Each attendee was given a gift bag filled with magazines, Kush Tourism guides, flower from Eco Firma Farms, Wild West Growers, and Troutman Farms, a half-gram EBlunt filled with distillate, medicated sugar from OCO, a 15mg Squib from Lunchbox Alchemy, and a 50mg Sensi Sweet juice. There was also a full dab bar from Lions Den, a rosin squishing station by Dark Horse Genetics, a CBD chill zone put on by Quill, and a ton of pie and snacks.
The industry portion was catered with a fully medicated meal, with six deep-fried infused turkeys provided by Skunk Train Farms and Ocean Grown Cannabis. Attendees also enjoyed medicated mini pumpkin pie bites from Laurie and MaryJane, and their medicated stuffing that was incredibly tasty. Also infused in the full Danksgiving meal were potatoes and mushrooms, and infused cranberry sauce. There was plenty of food and good cheer, and the celebration left everyone full of good food, Cannabis and the spirit of Danksgiving.
The only thing asked of attendees was to write what they were dankful for on one of three 10-foot-tall signs placed out front, where different colored sharpies and pens gave everyone the chance to be creative.
With the world and the Cannabis industry at large in transitioning times, plagued by uncertainty and confusion, Danksgiving was a great opportunity for people to come together, put aside politics, pick up a bowl or dab and give thanks. We hope to see everyone again next year and many more happy faces at the 2017 Danksgiving!
