What do you do when all the biggest names in the cannabis industry are in the same city, for the same event? You throw the most legendary weed party in history.
Vancouver’s Lift Expo took place from January 11th to 13th this year, attracting cannabis culture figureheads, industry leaders and impeccable tastemakers from around the coast. While the expo is now an industry staple for education and networking, it’s also a celebration – and one that calls for an especially memorable party, hosted by Legendary Nights.
Now, let’s set the scene. The party (which was exclusively for Lift VIPs and industry leaders) went down at an epic, private location in downtown Vancouver, and was the first of a series of cannabis events curated for the culture by Legendary Nights. The objective was simple: bring together the best cannabis brands and minds in the country, and have legendary time doing it. Of course, you can’t have an epic weed party without epic food, but the munchies brought in for this particular occasion were far beyond traditional, stoner munchie fare. Guests were treated to [insert specific mentions] over the course of the night, in addition to four dab bars, one cocktail bar, and one medicated drink bar courtesy of Sweet Justice. The vibe of the night was [insert specific], with 2 DJ’s playing a mixture of hip-hop and reggaeton.
If the guests came for the weed and elevated munchie spread, they likely stayed for the giveaways (because there were a ton). We partnered with End Game concentrates to give away over 100 pre-filled TOQi 510 Dab Cartridges containing Astro Pink sugar wax; an out-of-this-world terpy sugar wax created from legendary Vancouver Island Pink Kush. This concentrated hybrid offers distinct aromas of white pepper, orange, butterscotch, coffee, and earth. If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying Astro Pink yourself, it can be summed up in two words: flavourful and potent.
The giveaways didn’t end there, though. Thanks to generous sponsors like Mendo Medica, Lift&Co, Simply Bare, High North Labs, JBuds Cannabis, Carmel Cannabis, Lot 420, ADCANN, Next Friday, Boro and Beyond, Organnicraft, Kind Selections, the Heavenly Daze, Independent Retail Cannabis, and Wyld Canada, Legendary Nights gave out over 40K worth of product at the party. Yeah… you read that right. At one point, an organizer hopped on the mic to let the crowd know that they had 20 minutes to clear out the dab bar spreads before the party came to a close. Every guest left with pockets stuffed with our industry’s best dank, cannabis tech + accessories and, of course, memories of the most epic party our industry has ever seen.
Legendary Nights was, without a doubt, the perfect way to cap off Lift Expo Vancouver, and was an undeniably important night for the culture. TOQi was honoured to be a part of this vision, and we already can’t wait for the next legendary event.
