This year the Gentleman had the honor of sponsoring the National Cannabis Festival in Washington DC. What an amazing day it was, my beasties! NCF is the event of the year for the local cannabis community.
Today we’re gonna get to know our friends at I71 brand Select Co-Op. I sat down with their founder recently to gain some insight into what it’s like to run a cannabis gifting company in Washington, DC.
Your Gentleman had the opportunity to sit down and chat recently with a rising star of DC’s cannabis community, Lonny the Street Lawyer from Street Lawyer Services! You’ve seen his face on the sign outside their storefront, but today you’ll get to know the man behind…the face.
Cannabis Science Conference East 2019 just wrapped up at the Baltimore Convention Center and the Gentleman had a fantastic experience. Not only did I learn a lot, but the networking opportunity for the local industry was simply unparalleled.
It was a little after 9 p.m. on Friday night when I was jostled out of sleep by a loud, insistent knock at my door. Half-awake, pants-less, wrapped up in the sheets of The Commander Hotel in Ocean City, I ran thru the options of who was on the other side.
Vape technology nowadays means you can stay medicated on-the-go, so after years of being quietly resigned to smoking skunky flowers at home, lest some Nosy Ned alert the authorities, so I went to the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NWMA) in DC with my trusty pen in tow.
Abatin Wellness, one of DC’s six medical marijuana cultivators, grows some of the finest flowers this Gentleman has ever smoked, as I’ve mentioned in multiple reviews. But don’t just take my word for it!
Oh, wow, you guys – the Marijuana BizCon in Las Vegas was an overwhelmingly awesome experience. I was looking for an opportunity to get my kickass website some attention from the cannabis business community and buddy, I got it!
So what’s a cheeky little cherub such as moi doing in Sin City, you ask? Ah, you read the title, spot on! This is indeed the one year anniversary of GentlemanToker.com and coincidentally, or perhaps by karmic design, this most jubilous date coincides with the first day of recreational marijuana sales in Nevada.
The Gentleman has made his second round of the Denver cannabis scene, visited many dispensaries (ten), got a lil sumpin sumpin at each, and has strong opinions to share with you on the internet, my many happy-feeted penguins! Huzzah!
Way, way back, when the GT blog was still a twinkle in this lunatic’s independently-roving eyeballs, the head grower, Joey Lewis, and compliance officer, Mike, for DC medical marijuana cultivators Alternative Solutions enthusiastically agreed to sit down with me for an interview.
Funky Piece is the newest head shop in DC but the cousins that own it, Mark and Matt Bebawy, are old hands at the glass game, as their bright, airy shop on 18th St NW is an extension of their online shop.
