10 reasons to come to The High5 Presents: Pot of Gold

Another Saint Patrick’s Day is upon us, which means the town will be painted green over the next 24 hours while indulging in a variety of drinkables and edibles. The High5 presents a different take on this Irish holiday, and it will involve more than 25 craft cannabis brands in one gorgeous venue.

This elevated market is a must for the curious and Epicurious of cannabis, and here are 10 reasons why you should join us tonight.

Baked + not-so baked goods

Duh, the main reason you came? Selections include baked and no-baked bites, candies and beverages. Bakerz Shop (high, Lida!), Sofa King Baked, EP Infusions, Purple Canna Crown and many others await your taste testing, so get on that $10 ticket ASAP and get more tasting bang for your buck.

Dab bar

Perfect for the low-calorie taste connoisseur, dabs will be had! Being a lightweight, we’re coughing already. Hidden Valley Reserve will have a table set up, so stop by and say high!

The High5 

You’ve seen their epic promo shots, now come meet the ladies who are a main driving force for putting this event together. Sarah Gillies and Samantha Smith have been working hard on their recent High5 rebrand, and we are here for it. Also – can we talk about those gorgeous wigs?!?!

Fudge

Made with 100% cannabis bud butter, Miss Fudgemaker crafts a variety of artisan fudge flavours. After tasking them at the Love Market, I can confirm that if you add in some Baileys to the recipe, this is probably the closest thing to the ideal Saint Paddy’s treat.

Savoury treats

Matties Patties pack a punch of flavour and somewhere around 120 mg of THC. While that would put me on my ass, it may be your perfect dose.

Topicals, tinctures and athletic recovery…Oh, My!

Included in the roster of ab-fab infused brands are those that not only make us feel good inside but outside as well. You’ll find the likes of Blessed™, Charlene Freedom, Hemp Med and Dragon Elixirs onsite, to suit all of your relief needs.

Our main squeeze and Muay Thai Queen, Angelina will be blessing everyone with her edibles and athletic recovery insights. The train, treat, repeat Blessed™ owner produces high (lol) quality chocolates that are guaranteed to get you feeling zen after an intense sweat sesh.

Meanwhile, Gideon of Dragon Elixirs is healing sore muscles and joint pain with his wintergreen and rosemary Dragon Rub. Speaking from personal experience, this formula has helped me with my lower back pain immensely. The elixirs line is brilliantly crafted, with formulas that cater to several alchemic wellness needs.

CBD cocktail bar

Tasty and better-for-you cocktails, these drinks are THC-free, booze-free and help to dilute those “uh-oh, I think I overdid it with the edibles” moments. Which bring us to our next point…

Hangover-proof

Now while you may decide to venture off and join the insanity that is Saint Patrick’s Day in Toronto at some point this weekend, this event is 110% booze-free – so you’re guaranteed to enjoy all the benefits of a night out minus the dreadful hangover. Luck has nothing to do with it – just give your liver a break and satisfy your taste buds instead.

Comedy

Comedy and cannabis is an obvious pairing for guaranteed good times, and that’s why Lucy Gervais hosts all High5 events. She’s as hilarious as she is witty, and if you haven’t seen her in action, there ain’t no time like the present!

It’s happening in the East End

Oh, right. This mainly applies to us…

Tickets

Get your ticket on NOW in advance so you can put more green into your stash.

Happy Saint Paddy’s everyone, and remember – when it comes to edibles: start low and go slow.
