HI FIVE: Sean Black- HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup
Back in November, the HILIFE team headed to San Bernardino California for the HIGH TIMES 2016 Medical Cannabis Cup. With two back to back days of cannabis related activities, the trip was short, sweet, and super informative.
With innovation always at the forefront of the Cannabis Cup, there was a big emphasis on education throughout the weekend. The event featured a grow room, dab rig exposition, topical massage spa, kitchen demos, vape pen clinic and evening performances from DJ Snoopadelic, Juicy-J and more. It was empowering to witness speakers spotlighting national legalization, medical research seminars, budtender workshops, extract panels and more from insightful entrepreneurs and industry leaders. The living grow room was the first of its kind, showcasing grow set-ups, lights, and gardening techniques from expert growers. It was a weekend teeming with progressive thinking, wonderful people, and a whole lotta smoke.
Sean Black is the Cannabis Cup competition coordinator and longtime employee of HIGH TIMES. He’s expanded his expertise through cultivation and beyond over the years and doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. We hung out with him for a few minutes to talk about the industry, California’s Prop 64, and more for our HIFIVE interview series.
A private smoke sesh in a Cali mansion with Madzilla and her crew topped off the weekend for our group before we headed back to Colorado.
