Members of the cannabis industry roamed the event space sampling and savoring hundreds of mouth-watering marijuana infused products ranging from the highly-acclaimed Dank Tank vaporizer to the potent Pirate Candy Chocolate Pirate Puck, pictured below. The Pirate Puck measures two square inches and packs a whopping 120mg of THC.  Pirate Candy infuses their chocolates with a proprietary multi-strain Rick Simpson Oil formula. Keep an eye out for their new CBD Living water as well.

The delights experienced extended beyond the taste buds.  From the perspective of a product marketing expert, the branding exhibited at the event was outstanding.  One might expect impressive displays of creativity from cannabis companies, but we witnessed some serious eye candy – Sprig Soda, Zasp and Yummi Karma (pictured below) exemplify beautifully packaged innovative products with crisp, clean design.
