Marijuana expo returns – 2017 Grass Roots Craft Cup, Expo, and Dispensary Tour

It’s back for a second year:  Grass Roots 2017 – Victoria, BC – Saturday, June 3, 2017 – Da Vinci Center – 195 Bay St


The press release follows:

We are proud to announce the 2017 Grass Roots Craft Cup, Expo, and Dispensary Tour in Victoria BC. The Cup, Expo, and Dispensary Tour was the first of its kind, combining dispensaries with clients directly by bringing patients to their doorsteps as well as a cannabis business expo and entertainment portion as part of the overall experience. Canada is on the verge of legalizing cannabis and Victoria BC is one of the leading cities. By joining forces with BC Craft Association, Canadian Growers Association and Crop King Seeds, it gave us the platform for success. This was only the first event, and we are looking forward to the 2017 event and beyond. With the success of last year’s event, there are plans on taking this to a national level.

Over the weekend we saw over 1000 guests come through the expo portion of the event. The Canna Tours shuttle was a big hit with every seat on every tour completely filled with guests touring the different dispensaries throughout Victoria. During the weekend over half of the participating dispensaries reported their busiest single day patient sign-ups ever.

The “Cup Portion” of the event had over forty plus entries. Each participating dispensary will receive a VIP judges package with all the entered products for voting and as a sample for entries to picked up by the stores. This provides dispensaries a chance to sample a variety of strains and extracts. We received an abundance of messages from patients and dispensaries asking where to get these products.

The awards presentation ceremony was wall to wall with people showing their support. We distributed 90% of our judges packages to the connoisseurs of Victoria, and 80% participated in the voting. Our peak capacity was for the music and speakers and they were an absolute hit.

We are very appreciative of the support of the Vancouver Island cannabis community and the people and patients who came out to learn more about what the Canadian Cannabis Industry & Victoria’s budding community has to offer. Everything from the expo, tour and craft cup was an absolute success.

The Grass Roots Craft Cup team is proud to announce this year’s speaker forum and musical acts for the Grass Roots Craft Cup, Expo & Dispensary Tour 2.0 – Victoria BC happening June. 3rd in Victoria, BC at the Leonardo Da Vinci Italian Centre.
