Oster and Associates Expands Client Roster with the addition of Culinary and Cannabis


SAN DIEGO – (Jan. 24, 2020) – Oster and Associates, a full-service marketing agency focused on cannabis, luxury lifestyle and produce brands, is now the agency of record for Culinary and Cannabis, a high end cannabis event company based in Irvine, Calif.

The Culinary and Cannabis concept focuses on health, wellness and education through alternative uses of legal cannabis by means other than smoking. This idea brings together health care professionals and advocacy groups along with food and wine experts within the community for special events. These gatherings aim to remove the stigma associated with medical marijuana treatments by exploring its many culinary possibilities.

“Our primary goal is to educate people about the medical benefits of cannabis in a safe social setting,” said Tamara Anderson, event director of Culinary and Cannabis. “We know that there needs to be an informative component to everything that we do, but we also believe that people are looking for fun, new ways to enjoy cannabis. This includes learning how to cook with cannabis, incorporating luxurious skincare products and immersive spa treatments just to name a few.”

There is an element of excitement when it comes to the unlimited possibilities of legal cannabis use to improve the quality of life for millions of Californians. That includes informing interested adults age 21-and-up about the health benefits of cannabis and living a less painful and more fulfilling daily life.

“We are thrilled to be working with a visionary like Tamara and her Culinary and Cannabis team,” said Oster and Associates president Bev Oster. “Her medical background as a licensed registered nurse and pastry chef experience means that she can creatively pair medical ideas and culinary concepts for others to enjoy. Culinary and Cannabis events are uniquely special and something that fits Southern California’s entertainment landscape very well.”

Culinary and Cannabis has previously hosted events throughout the Southern California region including Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Orange County and San Diego to date. The 2020 calendar is currently filling up with events such as CannaSpa, a Culinary and Cannabis-hosted series of events that will focus on three main areas of interest. Each one will include a panel discussion on cannabis and its effects of different medical diagnoses and a short class on subjects like cannabis cocktails or topicals. There will be a special cannabis experience such as a facial, massage or sound bath. And there will be a time set aside for engagement between cannabis consumers and business owners in this intimate setting.
