We’ll see when we get on the ground specifically how distinctive it is or is not. But, Sarah keeps it quite accurate to the craft cannabis neighborhood and she knows a issue or two about fantastic weed. And I’m glad she’s staying accurate to the origins of the cup.
I’ve been to sufficient events that get funny about what’s legal and illegal. But when it comes to these events, it must be all about fantastic weed!
A lot of events that I’ve been to, they have meals trucks and glass blowing and t-shirt sales. And, not that there’s something incorrect with that, but most persons who go to a weed occasion want to be in a position to see, consume, and possibly buy some cannabis for themselves!

2018 was a wonderful year for the Karma Cup, even though the second day needed a sudden venue modify probably due to the Karma Cup’s proximity to the Toronto International Film Festival and Aurora Cannabis, who was a TIFF sponsor that year, becoming mad that the Karma Cup was taking place so close to their personal pop-up exhibit. A single of the largest motives why is simply because the Karma Cup enables you to freely medicate, even though the Aurora pop-up was banned from getting any cannabis onsite.
Despite the fact that that venue modify was a enormous in-comfort for Karma Cup organizers, in the finish, it only reflected the resiliency of the cannabis neighborhood as every person involved- from the attendees to the vendors, exhibitors, and speakers- bounced back difficult on that second day to make 2018 one particular of the most profitable Karma Cups ever.
