Doors Robby Krieger, Wyclef Jean, David Crosby Support WEEDCon Fundraiser

Last week, the third annual WEEDCon cannabis conference, sponsored by Greenstone Distribution, came to a close after two days of education, networking, music and well, cannabis.

Cannabis, currently legal in some form in 29 states, including California, is swiftly becoming appreciated for its medicinal attributes for nausea, insomnia, seizures and even cancer. These and other medical uses for cannabis have spurred a rush by celebrities and corporations to market and brand legal CBD and cannabis products. “Cannabis affects people in different ways” says WEEDCon Founder, John Williams. “People need to learn the best type of cannabis for their bodies and how they would prefer to ingest that cannabis – smoking, eating or drinking – that’s what WEEDCon is all about – education.”

WEEDCon guests enjoyed music with Doors guitarist Robby Krieger, three time Grammy winner Wyclef Jean and Little Feat guitarist Fred Tackett. Also on the agenda was the 2019 WEEDCon Buyers Cup, with celebrity judge David Crosby, giving awards for excellence in cannabis products. Among the winners in the increasingly popular cannabis drinks category were Manzanita Naturals, Space Gems, California Dreamin’ and The Good Stuff Tonics.

Manzanita Naturals, whose mission is to provide the highest-quality cannabis-infused beverages, offers a wide range of premium cannabis products. At this years WEEDCon Buyers Cup, Manzanita naturals won Best Indica Drink with their Qwik ZZZ’s Kushberry Indica 100mg drink, they won Best Hybrid Drink for their Kwik Ease Pineapple Express 100mg THC beverage and Manzanita Naturals also won Best Overall TCH Drink for their flagship line of small batch, all-natural, 10mg craft beverages, The Fizz Grape Sparkling Water.

California Dreamin makes cannabis-infused drinks for the recreational consumer made of only sparkling water, fruit juice, and cannabis, won Best Sativa Drink for their Pomegranate Sparkling Juice and Best Ratio Drink (THC and CBD) for their Lemon Sparkling Water.

Space Gems is another cutting edge cannabis company placing second for their Space Gem’s cannabis infused Passion Fruit Gem Guice. Space Gem products are made with ice water hash, a specific technique to separate THC trichomes to isolate the resin in cannabis. Using micro screens, ice and water, you strain out resin glands. Ice water separation is a cleaner method that doesn't involve other solvents and allows for a more refined hash.

Other winners in the drinks category included The Good Stuff Tonics a for their cannabis infused Hibiscus Strawberry Lemonade. The next WEEDCon is WEEDCon West in Hollywood in June. Visit
