Everyone ought to remember their very first 420. I mean, unless you literally smoked so much you forgot, in which case it sounds like you had a good first 420. While I can’t say I managed to smoke that much on my first 420, the bits and pieces are a bit fuzzy. What I do remember is hanging out with friends and spending time with fried food and live music. All around a good experience for a first 420. If you, like so many other midnight tokers, are a last-minute planner and have yet to decide where 420 2017 will lead you, I’ll add in my two cents with a venue suggestion. If you’re planning on parading through the heart of Denver for your 420, then chances are you’ll want to find yourself at 420 On The Block where The Green Solution® has teamed up with The Hemp Connoisseur and IncrEdibles to hold a blast that’s sure to go down in the record books. This is the inaugural year for 420 On the Block and everyone is pulling out all the stops to make this first year a bash to remember, including everything from live music, food, and industry specialists to cannabis-friendly buses where consumption is not only legal but encouraged!
Denver’s 420 On The Block:
From the very roots up, 420 on the block is set to be a collaboration that’s bringing together vendors, musicians, nightclubs, tour buses, and you, of course. For all you cannabis smoking enthusiasts in the department for the perfect setting for your 420 festivities look no further. The event will quite appropriately kick off at 4:20 p.m. on (you guessed it) April 20th and keep on rocking until the wee hours of Friday, April 21st at 2:00 a.m. when the party dies down. Unlike many of the other venues in Colorado that have no place to legally consume cannabis, 420 On The Block has you covered with cannabis-friendly buses, that you can hop into during the day and safely consume cannabis. Remember, it is still against the law to consume cannabis in any public spaces. This includes most concert venues across the state and any of the streets and areas sectioned off for the event. Know where to legally consume and there is absolutely no way you’re not going to have the time of your life.
420 On The Block Entertainment:
If it wasn’t enough that cannabis smokers from around world are joining forces for a weedy celebration, The Green Solution®, IncrEdibles, and The Hemp Connoisseur have partnered with local CoClub Venues to essentially rent out the entire area for this extravaganza. The party itself spans Bar Standard, Milk, City Hall, Vinyl, The Church, and The Living Room. Music for the event will include performances from Dumpstaphunk, Cut Chemist, Invisibl Skratch Picklz, Rusko, Don Carlos, J Phlip, Phaeleh, Blockhead, and the legendary Del the Funky Homosapien. Your ticket to enter 420 On The Block gets you unlimited access to all of the venues, all of the music, all the vendors, and all the fun. There is only one 420 in 2017 and 420 On The Block is the best way you can experience a little bit of everything all in one convenient stop.
420 On The Block Hosts:
420 On The Block is the brainchild of three great companies joining forces to bring one of the biggest 420 celebrations in the world to the streets of Denver. The Green Solution® is Colorado’s premiere dispensary chain, providing hundreds of cannabis products produced in-house to ensure quality and a price tag that won’t break the bank. The Green Solution® has several locations to choose from close to downtown in case you need to pick up any products on your way to 420 festivities. If you’re coming from the South check out The Green Solution® Alameda Ave. @ West Denver. If you’re arriving from Denver International Airport then you’ll want to swing by The Green Solution® Grape St @ North Denver. If you’re coming from up North, stop at The Green Solution® Malley Dr. @ Northglenn. If you are swinging by The Green Solution® for some 420 prep, might I recommend a 10 pack of Incognitos (joints cleverly hidden under the guise of normal looking cigarettes). If you’re still not sure what to buy while you’re at The Green Solution®, they do have an ample supply of award-winning strains, including many that have won coveted prizes in past Hemp Connoisseur competitions. The Hemp Connoisseur will also be at 420 On The Block, throwing down the grades on strains that are fire this year. Last but certainly not least, IncrEdibles will be bringing along their knowledge of the cannabis edible world to the party. If you’ve never had any of the cannabis-infused edibles from IncrEdibles then you’re doing yourself a grave injustice. I would personally recommend their Affogato bar or their Peanut Budda Buddha bar.
If you’re looking to make some new 420 memories this year, you now know the most happenin’ spot in town. Beyond the buds, the music, and the venues, there is something else that makes an event like 420 On The Block so special. The secret ingredient is you. 420 has slowly become more than just a protest against the oppression of cannabis use in the United States; it has become a mixing pot of ideas and cultures that normally would never meet. The next chapter in the saga of legalized cannabis has yet to be written and it’s up to all of us to educate ourselves and others around us about what this amazing plant can do. 420 On The Block is a celebration not only of how far the industry has come, but how far we still have to go. So, go get baked out of your mind this year at 420 On The Block, but remember, ask questions, meet new people, and spread the word about how cannabis has impacted you. Happy 420 and, as always, enjoy your cannabis safely and legally!
