Had a Blast at Buddy Boy Brands 420 Bazaar

We challenge ourselves to be active, not just outside or in the gym, but in many other ways. We actively use mobile apps to save money on our organic groceries. We actively earn rewards points and miles for free flights and hotel stays, and we’re always putting in effort to save money at dispensaries, and also elevate our minds for free. The obvious recurring theme here is our frugality, which is something we’re quite proud of. This tendency causes us to seek out free events, both in and outside of our industry. It’s what led us to the 4th Annual 420 Bazaar at the 2017 World Cannabis Week with Buddy Boy Brands

This two day event was free for the 1st 5,000 registrants to get tickets. Walking from blocks away we started joining the lines of people on the sidewalk all making our way to the entrance. We passed a Tostitos Pizza Roll Truck, in a prime location, serving up piping hot sample baskets of freshly made Pizza Rolls! We reluctantly passed on the pizza rolls even though they smelled amazing!  As we made our way closer to the building we saw a massive crowd of people and one hell of a long line.  The parking lot was bustling with 420 shuttle buses arriving and departing back and forth to the best dispensaries in Denver. 

We finally found the back of the line and were being handed coupons for inside the event when we realized one was from our very own sponsor, Keef Sparking and VitaCanna! Keef Sparkling is the world's first zero calorie, zero sugar adult beverage. They provide 10mg of THC and are available in Lemon and Blood Orange, both of which taste great! VitaCanna is a line of advanced cannaceutical blends and ratios providing a perfect liquid delivery system of cannabis-based relief. 

Shout out to Brett! It was great to see you and get to chat for a while!

Once inside the event we were amazed at the building itself. A maze like setup of rooms and spaces for vendors, created a fantastic flow from booth to booth. The floor to ceiling wall planters, clean modern decor, and lighting, accompanied by the DJ’s music and hoop performers filled the building creating a very chill and entertaining atmosphere.

We made our way around the venue, stopping to speak with business owners and brand ambassadors about their companies and products! One of the first products we had the pleasure of trying was a CBD infused iced coffee from Strava Craft Coffee in Denver, Colorado. It was delicious! Infused with CBD, it provides natural benefits to reduce stress, ease anxiety, eliminate jitters and restore balance.We even got to meet the owner, Andrew Aamot! He actually poured the coffee!

Overall, the 420 Bazaar was a lot of fun, and we got to meet so many great people! We were really surprised by the number of booths and professionals they had on hand to learn about the latest methods, and most popular trends in consumption within the Cannabis Industry. We will definitely be keeping it on our radar for an awesome cannabis event to attend again next year, and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn more about cannabis, or if you’re already knowledgeable about it, just to get out and converse among your peers. We feel like a broken record, but we’re learning what we enjoy most about starting MJFITNUT, is getting to meet so many like minded people! 

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Buddy Boy Brands, and all of the other sponsors involved that helped put this event together, and especially for making it FREE! 

Thanks again to our sponsor Keef Sparkling and VitaCanna!
