The funnest times I have ever had at Oregon cannabis events has been at the Portland Women Grow chapter events I've attended, hands down. The amount of enthusiasm and excitement at their networking events is like nothing I have ever experienced before at events in Oregon, industry related or otherwise. Everyone at the event is the head of a cannabis company, works for a cannabis company, or is trying to get into the cannabis industry. I was able to confirm the babysitter for Friday night, and plan on attending their event this Friday with the wife and Jay Smoker. It's Jay Smoker's birthday Friday, and even if he tries to fight it, I'm fairly certain I can peer pressure him into coming out, because it's going to be a celebration atmosphere.
This event will have some stellar networking opportunities, but it is also going to have BBQ'd food, wine, beer, a funk band, and there's even going to be a consumption tent sponsored by The Weed Blog. I plan on being in that tent early and often, and I plan on consuming some of Oregon's finest. As far as I know there are still tickets to the event, but that they are running out fast, as they always do for Portland Women Grow chapter events. If you have already been to an event, then you know what I'm talking about. And if you haven't been to one of their events, you are really missing out. There is simply no other organization that empowers and educates talented women in the expanding Oregon cannabis industry like Women Grow does.
If you can't make it to the event, you can still keep up-to-date on all things Portland Women Grow chapter related, including their upcoming events, by texting WGPDX to 420420. Below is more information about the event, via Eventbrite:
