You may think of weed and weddings as an unlikely pair, but it turns out they're kind of the perfect matrimony. I attended the San Francisco Cannabis Wedding Expo, because of course that's a thing, and learned about a number of ways couples can incorporate pot into their nuptials. Most people might picture stereotypical hippies gathering around a drum circle and passing joints, but 4/20-friendly weddings go beyond that perception. "Weed-ings" can in fact be executed just as elegantly and as upscale as what many would consider more traditional weddings. As recreational use continues to legalize across the country, it seems like more couples are becoming open to the idea.
The Expo featured over 50 vendors, from beauty services to cannabis chefs, all knowledgeable in the topic of safe incorporation and consumption. I was slightly disappointed to realize that all samples were not marijuana-infused, but I should've known as the only restriction to attend was age (21+). The selling and distributing of weed was strictly prohibited and all goods were "virgin" — even the nugs displayed in jars were fake. Again, disappointing but understandable. But instead of a high, what I took away from the event were ideas on how incredibly versatile cannabis can be in terms of weddings.
