The Emerald Exchange Comes to the Hollywood Hills

The Emerald Exchange, hosted this year at a beautiful Moroccan mansion in the Hollywood Hills, showcases world class, sun-grown cannabis from Northern California and brings it to the Southern California cannabis community. A number of artisanal cannabis cultivators came down to Los Angeles hoping to educate and provide top quality products for consumers in all parts of California. Some of these cannabis cultivators and brands included SoHum Royal, Cut Creek Farms, CannaCraft, absolutextracts, Privy Peach, Papa & Barkley, and more. Consumers left feeling empowered with more cannabis knowledge and stronger as an  community dedicated to wellness and artistry.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
