Dank Holiday Monday + Brighton = Jerk & Fire (with a spot of cricket)
The summer season has taken a little while to get fully underway here in the United Kingdom, but the cannabis clubs and collectives of the UKCSC have taken full advantage of that and hosted events almost every weekend of the summer starting in April at 4/20 in major parks of London, Manchester and Leeds. Product Earth, Green Pride, CannaCampFest have been significant highlights of the year that have drawn in the local cannabis communities allowing the natural networking that is needed for us all to expand and grow to take place.
This August Bank Holiday weekend took no exception and was picked out as a day by Brighton Cannabis Club member @NugsofBeauty as a South Coast alternative to Notting Hill Carnival that was a little more chilled and a little bit more 420 orientated and friendly. It follows on from their BBQ last year in the same location at East Park which saw around 150 local tokers, patients and clubs converge for a bit of grilled food across the coals while sharing some of the local and personally grown flowers, edibles and extracts. This year saw the affair swell to numbers pushing the 700 mark throughout the day and enthusiasts travelling from as far as Newcastle such as the It’s Gold Up North crew who are a part of the Newcastle Cannabis Club, as you can tell, they came bearing gifts of dank.
Setting up at midday London Smoking Club and East London Cannabis Club set up their headshop gazebos alongside Cummin Up a local Jerk and BBQ chef that knows how to spice up that sauce! Nannies’s Gourmet Edibles were pitched up in true style and were glowing after finding out they had just won 3rd place in the London Smoking Club’s Edibles Cup recently held. Brighton Cannabis Club and UKCSC were there signing up members to the club and are now over the 250 members mark. Hampshire Cannabis Club came along in high spirits spreading their “our life, our choice” message and Too Loud Smoking came to rep and dish out rolling papers a plenty to make sure we never stopped rolling.
