Hemp Holiday Weekend
We are excited to announce a hemp-filled holiday weekend December 8 and 9 in Burlington.
The weekend kicks off on Saturday, December 8 with a holiday edition of our CBD Hemp Farmers Market in Burlington’s Contois Auditorium, where 20+ vendors will be selling a wide variety of Vermont-made gifts for holiday shoppers, including CBD and hemp products, from 12-4 p.m.
The market will also include a cultivation demo, a cannabis-themed storytelling booth, and a gift-wrapping station – with donated proceeds going to the Pennywise Foundation in support of cannabis conviction expungements.
The morning of Sunday, December 9, we’re collaborating on a Hemp Brunch with Skinny Pancake at their Burlington waterfront location. The brunch will run from 8 a.m. until supplies run out. The special hemp-themed menu will include products from a wide range of Vermont growers and product-makers. Heady Vermont members will receive 10% off when they show their card at the register.
Sunday afternoon, we’re partnering with cannabis activist Rick Trojan on a screening of his powerful documentary Hemp Road Trip at The Film house at Main Street Landing, with showings at 2 and 5 p.m..
Hemp Road Trip documents Trojan’s multi-year, 48-state bus tour to increase awareness of industrial hemp, educate the public, influence policy makers, and promote economic growth opportunities by ending the prohibition and misunderstanding of industrial hemp.
The film highlights hemp’s capacity to positively impact public health, energy production, manufacturing, and the planet as a whole. Tickets for the film are $10, with a special surprise gift for Heady Vermont members.
