Cannabis Makes its Official Music Festival Debut at Outside Lands
Monday, Aug 13, 2018

For the first time, cannabis became part of the official lineup at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival this weekend—kind of. Grass Lands, the first-ever curated cannabis experience to hit a mainstream festival, set up shop in a sprawling woodland fairyland overlooking the festival’s main stage. However, regulations forbid the sale of Grass Lands’ star—ironic considering vape clouds throughout Golden Gate Park on any given day roll about as thick as San Francisco’s August fog, especially since marijuana became legal recreationally at the beginning of this year.

So what do you do at a cannabis event that doesn’t actually feature its headliner? It turns out a lot, thanks to the creativity and ingenuity of the mostly local brands that paid homage to cannabis education, sustainability, and San Francisco as the birthplace of the medical marijuana movement.

True Terpenes set up a “smell wall,” featuring the six most common terpenes present in cannabis, giving attendees the chance to be invigorated by and learn about the elements that give strains their flavor and smell profile and many of its health benefits.
