Hemp Village Announced

May. 21st 2019

We’re proud to announce the addition of Hemp Village with products, wellness vendors & educational panels featuring industry experts!

Mountain Jam will elevate the fan experience with the addition of a Hemp Village.

The Hemp Village will include hemp panels over the weekend, covering a range of topics currently being tackled in the industry, as well as a look into the future as legislation and legalization continues to evolve. Speakers include Elizabeth Hogan (Willie’s Remedy), Jaime Pearson (COO, Bhang Chocolate), Jen Bernstein (Women’s Cannabis Club), as well as activists, herbalists, innovators in cannabis technology and representatives from well-known brands such as CannaCraft, FarmaceuticalRX, Hudson Hemp and Nectars Collective.

In the Hemp Village, attendees can find information from Project CBD, a non-profit educational news service, founded with the vision of demystifying information about cannabis medicine and therapeutics. By bringing clarity and healing via content that is easy to understand and utilize, Project CBD aims to create a world where cannabis empowers people to take an active role in their health and well being.

The Village will also include vendors Bloom Farms, Healthy Honeys, UpWell Beverages and Pzoa-Organics, with more vendors to be announced soon.

Bloom Farms, a California company known for their ultra-premium cannabis products, has recently launched a line of full-spectrum, organically grown CBD oil tinctures for wellness — the benefits many people attribute to CBD, such as mind-body balance, wellness and calm, restful sleep, post-exercise relief. Bloom Farms is also committed to their 1-for-1 program: for every purchase, the company donates a healthy meal to a food-insecure individual or family. Since 2015, they’ve donated roughly 1.7 million meals through their food bank partners.

Healthy Honeys Day Spa will be on-site in the Hemp Village. Before entering the spa, guests can enjoy CBD sparkling water made from natural ingredients, including hemp extract, from Albuquerque, New Mexico-based UpWell Beverages. Three activation centers inside will offer a facial bar, rose foot soak station, and a gentle hand scrub stand, all infused with Healthy Honeys CBD products.

Pzoa-Organics, a Hudson Valley company run by a long-time Mountain Jammer, will offer salves for pain, pleasure, and other products for both people and pets.

PANEL DISCUSSIONS

SATURDAY, JUNE 15 – 2pm (Event Gallery)

Never Forget the Farmer: Tales from the Grow

Moderator: Isaac Slone

As legal cannabis expands, we can’t forget the farmer. The success of the industry relies on the hard work of cannabis cultivators, some of whom have faced difficult loss due to natural disasters, some of whom work tirelessly to follow regulations and change with legislations. In this panel, we hear from the individuals working at the very start of the supply chain as they discuss sustainability, growth, and their passion for the plant.

Panelists include:

  • Melany Dobson (Hudson Hemp)
  • Cassandra Maffey/Brie Kralick (FarmaceuticalRX)
  • RJ Falcioni (Outspoke.io)
  • Noel Liese/Krystal Walters (Nectars Collective)

SUNDAY, JUNE 16 – 1pm (Event Gallery)

For a Higher Society: Activism, Entrepreneurship, and Cultural Transformation

Moderator: Jen Bernstein (WCC)

Cannabis has become one of the more multifaceted industries. It challenges those involved to always be thinking ahead, while also working within the confines of what’s possible at the moment. As cannabis legalization and decriminalization progresses state by state, those motivated to succeed and shape the industry in the long run must consider the long history of activism that has come before them. In this panel, we will hear from some of those people working at the frontlines to ensure cannabis’s steady development stays true to its roots while being integrated into the fabric of the current cultural landscape.

Panelists include:

  • Jaime Pearson (COO, Bhang Chocolate)
  • Elizabeth Hogan (Willie’s Remedy)
  • Rebecca Myers (FarmaceuticalRx)
  • Patricia Perone (NYC herbalist/activist)
  • Jenn Glickman (CannaCraft)
