We Threw A Party To Celebrate The End Of California's Cannabis Prohibition - And It Was Awesome

Civilized recently celebrated the end of Prohibition at the Montalbàn Theatre in Hollywood, CA. The evening kicked off with a Prohibition-era jazz band, Lizzy & The Triggermen.  The live performance was followed by a special silent disco themed rooftop screening of the (Jeff Sessions-approved) 1937 original "Reefer Madness" film.   

Throughout the evening brands such as; THC Design, CANNDESCENT, Bakked, Bloom Farms, O.Pen Vapes, GreenHouse Herbal Center, CBD Living Water, and MovieRanker.com - all showcased their best products to the crowd of 350 guests on the rooftop corner of Hollywood and Vine.  

Branden Allen from Canndescent was on hand demonstrating The Art of Flower "Interpening" Canndescents effects-based architecture to guests in attendance. Through his Interpening methodology, Branden explained good flower vs. bad flower and allowed guests to sample the effects in person.  Fair to say that Connect was the standout effect of the night.

Guests were also educated on Bloom Farms brands and their giving back through a 1-for-1 program. For every product purchased, Bloom Farms donates a meal to "food-insecure" families through charities and food banks partners.  

That is certainly something to celebrate!

A special thanks to our media partner LA Weekly and also to Umami Burger for keeping us well fed!   


For new and experienced cannabis consumers looking for a new way to discover products, look no further than the Cannabiscope Wheel. Civilized caught up with co-founders David Schachter and Paul Shockley to learn how the idea came to them, what they hope for the future of the company, and how cannabis industry folk and consumers are already benefiting from the service. How did you get the idea for Cannabiscope?I had the idea while on vacation in Amsterdam in 2014 when I heard author Doug Fine (who's now an advisor to Cannabiscope) speak at the High Times Cannabis Cup.

Can we see some ID please?
