Cannabis Singles Speakeasy presented by Highly Devoted and LoveandMarij
Singles Speakeasy Presented By Highly Devoted and LoveandMarij
When it comes to dating and getting to know someone, honesty is always the best policy (coupled with appropriate timing, of course!) and as a long time cannabis consumer, I can recall many instances over my life when I’ve had to “come clean” about my relationship with the plant to someone new and the anxiety I felt over it. Then there was the absolute relief and instant connection I’d feel when the person I was with admitted that they used cannabis, too. This experience is common for single folks who love ganja, and Molly Peckler, founder of Highly Devoted Coaching, created a space for people to connect romantically with others and enjoy a toke at the inaugural Singles Speakeasy in Los Angeles!
The world we live in is shifting and cannabis friendly professionals are looking for ways to partake with others in social and romantic settings, and Molly’s approach to this was perfect. Highly Devoted Coaching partnered with Love and Marij, a Denver-based wedding and high-end event planning business geared towards the cannabis enthusiasts of the world (or at least those in legal areas!) to curate an evening perfect for those looking to connect with other singles and try out new cannabis products. At a gorgeous rooftop location at the very center of Los Angeles, 20 guests were met with gourmet bites by The Herbal Chef, on-site doctor’s recommendations with Presto Doctor, and absolutely breathtaking views of just about every LA landmark you can name! Terpene bowls designed to enhance the experience with aromatherapy and visual appeal lined the outdoor space where guests learned about and sampled Evoxe Labs vaporizers that strategically blend cannabis and essential oils to set different moods, depending on what the end user is looking for. A secret hallway space was decked out in fun, black light-enhancing paint and creative fixtures with a cozy lounge area ideal for those who wanted a more intimate setting to spark their connections.
The singles mingled and connected with each other before Molly took the floor and shared her expertise on dating, life coaching, and being a confident cannabis consumer who defies the stoner stigma. Her advice came from years of working with professional clients mixed with her own personal story of bonding with her now-husband over a bowl of cannabis 11 years ago. What I loved most about her advice was that much of it could be applied to a romantic or a professional relationship, particularly when it came to looking for someone with similar values. Afterwards, hand-rolled joints by Sailene were given to guests to spark up and continue the fun and conversations for the rest of the evening. As the night came to a close, guests of the event took home swag bags full of amazing cannabis products like a Kush Queen atomizer, Mind Tricks Toffee edibles, Foria’s THC infused lubricant, Pura Vida Health’s First Love Gramola edibles, Bhang’s medicated chocolate, Sacred Mind & Body’s infused Epsom salts and massage oil, a paleo edible from Moonman’s Mistress, and many more!
It was so much fun attending this event and learning from the first and only expert of her kind in this industry! It was also a breath of fresh air to see so many professional herb lovers gather together without a primary focus on networking. Highly Devoted and Love and Marij did a job creating a green space for connections to blossom!
This event was only the first of many designed for the sophisticated, cannabis-loving singles crowd. Molly is taking her talents to Denver next and other medical and recreational friendly locations in the coming months.
