Oster and Associates to Host Cannabis 101 on Aug. 15

Oster and Associates, a full-service marketing agency focused on outdoor living, produce and cannabis-related brands, will be hosting Cannabis 101 on Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 5th Avenue Kitchen and Tap in Hillcrest. The non-consumption event, which is free and open to the public, will serve as forum to help educate the community on California’s current legal cannabis industry.

Cannabis 101 will be the main topic of the evening as business owners and consumers will discuss a wide range of questions during the panel discussion featuring some of San Diego’s top cannabis industry leaders.

The current lineup of panel participants includes EventHi chief marketing officer Adelia Carrillo, Think BCL owner David Best, Chronic Kookies president and co-founder Kyle Palmer, High Style Brewing Company chief operating officer Lyden Henderson and OutCo chief executive officer Lincoln Fish.

“Educating the greater San Diego community about cannabis not only informs but also helps build awareness of the industry in a fun, engaging and supportive setting,” said Oster and Associates president Bev Oster. “We’re excited to amplify this message as a reinforcement to the industry and to California’s business community.”

The idea behind this event is to support the legal cannabis market as it evolves into a more mature business industry. Through these free events, the legal cannabis industry will be able to educate people about what cannabis is and what it isn’t while shattering any social stigmas about cannabis that might still remain. In a relaxed and professional setting, attendees can network and build connections with other local people interested in supporting the industry, consider pursuing cannabis careers or simply learn more about cannabis.

There will be dedicated time for audience questions, non-medicated sampling opportunities with participating industry brands and special giveaway items including gift bags for the first 100 registered attendees. All guests will enjoy special happy hour pricing on food and drinks from 5th Ave. Kitchen and Tap. RSVP’s are strongly recommended but not required.
