The New Smoker’s slogan is “Bringing Class to Grass” and they certainly lived up to that reputation with A New Smoker Evening. As soon as I arrived to a mansion in Los Feliz, I felt like I was in the presence of magic. Melodic jazz music beckoned me to the backyard, where craft cocktails and an elevated cannabis experience awaited me. A variety of vendors greeted me upon entering, making me feel like I was in a magical wonderland. My friends at the Kush Queens were showing off their signature “Lit Kit,” which, with a CBD/THC bath bomb, joint, and 25 mg chocolate, is all you need for a relaxing evening in. Moonman’s Mistress tempted me with organic, gluten-free, vegan edible samples. Other vendors that stood out included Ganga Goddess and their edible body butter and To Whom it May Chocolates, who thoughtfully offered chocolates in a range of doses. Mondo Meds offered up samples of their multi-use infused powder while Hashman sampled their infused olive oil. My friends Papa & Barkley were also in attendance with their award-winning topicals. The New Smoker is all about creating an elevated lifestyle for the new cannabis consumer. Not only do they have a curated daily review website, they also publish a periodic magazine where they advise cannasseurs on industry trends. Guests at A New Smoker Evening were gifted a copy of the most recent issue of The New Smoker Magazine on USB, which I thought was a clever way to save paper. As if the evening could get any better, they also had an open bar and tacos being made on the spot. A New Smoker Evening definitely set the bar high when it comes to curated cannabis events.
