San Jose Hempcon 2012 Shows Diverse Marijuana Culture on Full Display

Over the weekend reported on site from the floor of the San Jose Convention Center.  To no one’s surprise our community held another peaceful, fun, and educating event.  Hempcon appeared to be a very successful event, largely due to the patients, guest speakers, businesses, and educational organizations who were in attendance.

We would like to take this time to briefly touch on some of those who made the event a memorable one.  As always dispensaries were on hand to show off their quality medication.  Papadon’s had an excellent showing and patients were thrilled to try their XJ-13Aunt Zelda’s and Utopia Health Group provided excellent delivery services and were happy to talk about their businesses at Hempcon.  Patients and dispensary workers were excited to look up the strains they saw at Hempcon in our comprehensive strain database.  Singing Bird Family Farm brought their excellent honey products.  Building on their best product winners from the most recent Denver, Los Angeles, and Detroit Cannabis Cup’s, Mama P’s brought their quality grinders with them to Hempcon.  They’ll also be attending next week’s High Times Cannabis Cup in San Francisco as they look to win for best product again.

Those seeking information regarding the newest educational and legal developments were not disappointed by Hempcon.  There were firms such as Hallinan & Hallinan, who were on hand to discuss the newest legal developments with attendees.  We at found a very engaging audience eager to hear about some of the newest entries in our news and article section.  There were also guest speakers which included a great speech from Melissa Balin.

Getting together with fellow members of the medical marijuana community is always a memorable experience.  While we enjoyed Hempcon we are looking to carry that excitement over into this weekend’s 2012 High Times Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cup in San Francisco.  As always, we encourage you to come down and say hello.  Keep checking in as we will provide up to date info as next weekend unfolds.  You can check with us immediately after the Cup is over for a detailed listing of next weeks winners.

Colorado Shows Medical Marijuana can be a Thriving Industry

We are still only a few days removed from the tremendously successful 420 weekend.  Celebrations occurred around the world and was fortunate enough to attend the 2012 High Times Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cup.  As always patient access and safety are the most important issues, but the Cup also provides a forum for other interesting aspects of the industry.

The cup gives a unique chance to compare top strains and while the award ceremony may be the biggest attraction (click here for the winners), attendees were treated to a convention that highlighted the many and varied businesses in the medical marijuana industry.  In any tough economic times, job creation and tax revenue are popular issues.  Fortunately medical marijuana can do so much to create better economic conditions while providing safe and affordable relief.  Unfortunately, lobbyists and stubborn politicians have not allowed this industry to reach its full potential.  The Cannabis Cup in Denver demonstrated the tip of the iceberg.

We at would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the quality businesses that were present at the Cup. was located right next to, Judge Jars, which was providing high quality jars and storage options.  Education groups were also a big part of the event.  The group Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol let their presence be felt.  This group has been instrumental in collecting the required signatures to get a legalization vote to the people this November.  Sensible Colorado was also at the event fighting to stop federal raids of dispensaries.  Another group providing education was the Cannabis Business Alliance.  They are advocates for patients, small businesses owners and employees of the medical marijuana industry.  There were so many great dispensaries also at the event such as Green Man Cannabis, AMA, and Mahatma.  We were also very impressed with Essential Extracts victory for their solvent-less wax.  As they did at the Los Angeles Cannabis Cup, Mama P’s won for the best product with their popular grinders.  Good Chemistry had an amazing lounge set up in the patient room.  As always we support laboratories that promote safe medicine.  We can always rely on our friends, The Werc Shop to help spread knowledge to patients about their medicine and the latest testing methods.   Lets not forget the Mad Hatter Smoke Shop and Dope Ass Glass.  As in any quality cultural gathering, art is an important element.  We were happy to meet the talented artist Marie, with Kushed Out Fashions.  There were so many other quality businesses so please forgive us if they were not mentioned here.

While was in Denver over the weekend there were many other 420 events that we could not attend.  We are encouraging viewers to describe their weekend in the comment section of this article.  Tell us about an event you attended or future events celebrating our wonderful community and the potential to bring physical and economic relief to Americans.
