Northern Nights Music Festival to Host a Cannabis Infused Wellness Experience
We’re now less than two weeks away from the seventh installment of Northern Nights Music Festival in California’s Emerald Triangle. Taking place July 19-21, the annual event is tucked away into the Redwoods on the Eel River with a weekend of total immersion, live music, wellness and cannabis. Earlier this year, organizers announced that Northern Nights will be the first camping, three-day and overnight festival in the country to allow the recreational dispensing and use of cannabis via AB2020. A massive 20+ dispensaries will be able to sell their product and talk to consumers in the NN Tree Lounge. Now, attendees have another reason to get excited — to coincide with the recreational rollout, Northern Nights is also incorporating cannabis into its wellness programming.
Deemed “Re-Creation,” Northern Nights 2019 will witness the birth of a cannabis and CBD infused wellness experience curated by local cannabis brand Humboldt Farms and San Francisco’s City Fit Fest co-founder Nate Mezmer. Spanning all three days at the festival, the programming includes a variety of wellness classes, workshops and mindful gatherings open to attendees 21 and over. This groundbreaking wellness activation will explore movement, mindfulness, healing, and community, in combination with the restorative powers of cannabis and CBD.
Some of the sessions include Breathwork & Cacao guided by Paola Ucelo, Self Care: Cannabis & CBD 101 with Letesha Holley, Self-Massage and Stoned Yoga with neuromuscular therapist Katy Karns, Movement is Medicine with movement coach Vishal Kumar, Restorative Acro Yoga with Adam Frater & Sammie Mancine, CBD & TLC with Relationship Coach Leah Morris, Cannabis & Medicinal plants workshop with Humboldt Farms Co-Founder Liz Lux, Body Work by Missy Kai, Hypno Trance Dance with Amanda Silvati, Infused Yoga with Kaeli Renae, and Soul Jam with musician Nina Grae.
With the help of AB2020, festival organizers have been able to rethink the relationship between cannabis and music festivals — and legally, too having been involved with the passage of the legislation itself. 2019 has only seen the perseverance of Northern Nights’ pioneering dominance in the world of cannabis and music festivals, adding to their already extensive list of firsts. Though not their first year making history, it’s certainly going to be the most historical.
