Back in April, 7x7 was stoked to launch our first-ever Friendly Guide to Bay Area Cannabis—a collection of the industry's brightest innovators, top quality flowers and products, the best dispensaries, most unique experiences and more, all curated by 7x7 editors and some of our favorite cannabis experts. On May 26th, we gathered the local cannabis industry's finest for a fete inside the chic private Lounge at Harvest to celebrate the guide and California's cannabis movement.
Marty Higgins, founder of Harvest—the Geary Boulevard cannabis boutique that's appealing to a modern clientele—was our host for the evening, opening the doors to his stylish back lounge for the occasion. (Currently, the posh hideout is being used for private events, but will open as a members-only club this summer.) Higgins treated our guests to authentic Richmond District dim sum and the Warriors game on the tube.
Flow Kana, our personal choice for organically grown cannabis flowers fresh from the Emerald Triangle, also sponsored the occasion, with cofounders Flavia Cassani and Michael Steinmetz in the house to offer tastes of their sun-grown buds, which are available by delivery Bay Area–wide and in select dispensaries (including Harvest).
Other industry VIPs in attendance included drug policy wonk and 7x7 contributor Amanda Reiman; Auntie Dolores founder Julianna Carella; Jamel Ramiro and Liz Rudner of Moonman's Mistress; Dr. Hanya Barth, founder of Compassionate Health Options; and more.
