The First Inaugural CannaVet Fest was a Huge Success!
Veterans Cannabis Group Arizona Post leader Recio Jackson and the VFW Post 720 Commander Herb Harrison
CannaVet Festival took place on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022
at the VFW Post 720 in Phoenix, AZ

A beautiful day with a steady flow of Veterans attendance coupled with enthusiastic and informative vendors, dj music and plenty of cannabis is a great way to sum up the event! Starting in the early morning hours with Paul Bishop (Combat Veteran) and Jim Morrison (Erl Cup Founder) charging the way from donut pick-up to event set up at the VFW Post 720.

Veterans from all over the country were in attendance, one notably told us he flew in from North Carolina just for CannaVet Fest. Many Veterans new to the area came to support their local Veterans and some even joined or transferred their VFW membership to Post 720. All the vendors and Veteran nonprofit organizations had great information to share and educate the Veterans about medicinal cannabis. The vendors and nonprofits provided resources and created a valuable networking and comfortable environment for Veterans and their families to learn and create new friendships amongst the Veteran Community.

The VFW Post 720 Veteran members joined in the festivities and education and showed their support by interacting and welcoming new members, giving interview testimonials about how cannabis has helped them, and educating themselves on medicinal cannabis. “This was exactly the intent of the event, to bring together the local Veteran Community and Cannabis Industry Professionals, to the VFW Veteran members and their Officers to educate them about medicinal cannabis” stated Aaron Augustis from Veterans Cannabis Group.
Altogether, a very successful event with music, food, educational classes, networking, and a safe and fun environment to learn, try, and become educated about medicinal cannabis for our Nation’s Heroes!

Thank you to the VFW Post 720 Commander and officers for allowing us to come to your facility and put on an event to benefit our Nation’s Veterans. Our hope and intent are to show the success of integrating cannabis with VFW Posts as a benefit to Veterans helping them alleviate some of their service-connected disability symptoms, from joint pain and sleeplessness to combat-related PTSD.

If you are a VFW or American Legion Post Commander, we encourage you to learn from VFW Post 720 and the success of CannaVet Fest about how you and your members can benefit from medicinal cannabis. Thank you for all that you do to help service your local Veterans and community!
VCG was also at the Cali Vibes music fest
in Long Beach Feb 4-6
VCG had a booth at the Cali vibes event in Long Beach over the weekend of February 4th. The event was a weedmaps village produced by Immersia Live and the Dispensary sponsor was The Medicine Woman, while the Event Producer was Golden Voice.

VCG collaborated with Grand Stand Sports for a silent auction to raise money for veterans. We met a lot of veterans who were in attendance, interested, and excited to see a nonprofit for veterans advocating for cannabis.

Through our partnership with Immersia and weedmaps we are blessed to be integrated with everything they do. We are the give-back side of what they do in the cannabis space.
A special thank you to:

Wendy at Immersia
Mike at Weedmaps
VCG will be at the G4 in Las Vegas May 12-14, 2022
