The Coast always likes raising awareness around things people consume for fun, whether that’s in print—the annual Beer Guide comes out this week—or IRL with events like Burger Week, Halifax Oyster Festival and the Drink Atlantic cocktail festival. And now that recreational weed is officially on the menu, we are continuing our tradition of enjoyable education by starting an event called The Coast Cannabis Sessions.

Saturday, April 6 will be a full day of discussions for curious, beginner and dedicated consumers alike. The event, downtown in the former Attica Furnishings space, will feature conversations on education, application and the demystification of weed.

Ever wonder about growing pot at home? Want to learn more about the science behind the plant? And what’s craft cannabis all about, anyway? The Cannabis Sessions can answer your questions.

With the legalization of cannabis has come a lot of confusion. For many Canadians, this new wave of weed brings a huge learning curve, yet public information still seems bureaucratic and inadequate. Cannabis Sessions is aiming to address that lacking. For the first time in the region, this will be a safe place for attendees to interact with the recreational pot brands, industry professionals and, of course, other consumers.

“There is a lot of cannabis talk right now and The Coast wanted to create a space where the questions and answers can be spoken in a fresh way,” says Christine Oreskovich, publisher and events producer at The Coast. “This is an event for both avid and new consumers in Halifax, where they can talk to brands and hear from experts.”

Speaking of questions, the first one everybody asks is if there will be cannabis samples at the Cannabis Sessions. There won’t, at least not this year, but there will be a great swag bag included in the $40 admission.
