Mendocino Cannabis Resource Events (MCREvents) is hosting its inaugural “Kind Bud Campout” this weekend, July 9-10, at the historic Black Oak Ranch north of Laytonville, California. The meeting will be a combination of music, education and legal and safe consumption of cannabis.
During the day, speakers will discuss the different types and qualities of hash, hash extracts and how they are produced. Another panel focuses on terpenes – one of the most elusive and important components in cannabis plants. Terpenes are responsible for the myriad of scents and flavors in cannabis strains and are part of the complex chain of chemical compounds that create a wide variety of cannabis effects. A Cannamaste cannabis spirituality ceremony will be held at 4 PM.
Saturday night’s shows include sets from Kind Bud and the Joints, with Papa Mali and Matt Hubbard, Bobby Vega and Wally Ingram performing a very special “Garcia / Hunter Set” to their exclusive West Coast performance. Along with these legendary artists, singer-songwriter Sherita Perez and positive reggae artist Junior Toots graced the stage.
Activist roots, with an eye on the future
MCREvents founder Karen Byars supports the cannabis community through workshops, events, job fairs, private consulting and business services in Mendocino County. Now, says Byars, the purchase of a license from the Cannabis Event Organizer in California has given him the opportunity to branch out into event production.
“We are focused on creating cannabis markets and shows that feature flowers and cannabis products outdoors in Northern California, at festivals and events,” says Byars. “The Kind Bud Campout is an intimate cannabis-oriented experience in Northern California.”
The exclusive night meeting is limited to 500 attendees. Advance bird tickets are $ 75, which includes parking and camping. Tickets and information are available on the Kind Bud Campout website https://www.kindbudcampout.com/.
Guests can also participate in our open-air microphone session at night or share your stories in one during the ‘Outlaw Storytelling: Real Tales from Behind the Redwood Curtain,’ ”Byars continues.
The on-site cannabis market will feature a variety of offers from licensed farmers and producers. The meeting will focus on hash – one of the most expensive and least understood cannabis products. There will be a Dab Bar at the market and a unique opportunity for hash tasting, with tasting kits available for purchase.
