Weed Lifestyle

This past Friday, the finals of this year’s The Hemp Connoisseur competition were held at Casselman’s in Denver. The event was a “Cirque de Cannabis,” complete with circus style attractions, live music, and what sounded like plenty of MMJ friendly fun.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the event. However, we still wanted to report the results. I want to thank the The Hemp Connoisseur for holding this great competition, and giving some of the best dispensaries in town the chance to show off their goods. Judging the sativa and CBD flower category was a great deal of fun, and I’d gladly be a “connoisseur judge” again.
