Week in Weed: The best 15 Instas from #MJBizCon — and one bonus flick

Let's do this: 15 of the week's best weed-inspired Instagrams

This week we have collected our favorite photos taken at Marijuana Business Conference & Expo (#MJBizCon) in Las Vegas. The Vegas junket is notorious in the cannabis industry for being great for networking, having a few drinks and sleeping very little. Some even skip the conference goings-on and make the trip just for the parties. So without further ado, check out the canna-celebrities, the canna-products and don’t forget the canna-bonus shot of Miss Miley.

We want to see your weed photos: To submit your Instagram weed pics to the mix, make sure your photos are public and tag @cannabistcurator or use #WeekInWeed. We are not liable if you get in trouble at work because you’re posting weed pictures online. So post responsibly, friends, and we’ll see you again soon.

1. It’s like “Grease” meets the cannabis industry.


2. Some took the advice fairly seriously.


3. Others ate their way through Vegas.

9. Blue City Diesel…in a can.

Game changer: cannabis in a can. SO BADASS. Still not over it. @jennnnshort and I just cracked it open and it was fresh, had beautifully large buds, and smelled ridiculously amazing. Not to mention it's beautifully designed (what can I say, I'm a #designnerd 😁 #noshame) AND they package each strain differently. This one is Blue City Diesel; officially approved. πŸ‘ Had the pleasure of meeting a couple of wonderful people with @n2packaging – the guys behind the scenes of this beauty – tonight at the #williesreserve and #cannabrand party in the #womengrow suite. As expected, it was blast (of course). And we sincerely thank N2 for the amazing new experience of cannabis in a can. πŸ™Œ #mjbizcon

11. Farmer Tom again, this time with Mason Jar Event Group’s Kendal Norris and Katherine Grimm of CNN’s “High Profits” series.

I freaking love this industry. Seriously. The annual Vegas conference truly is such an amazing opportunity to catch up with friends, new and old, and the Women Grow party is always THE place for exactly that. I had the amazing pleasure of meeting @farmertomlauerman, an OG who's been kicking ass and taking names in Washington. Plus I hear rumors of a resort style bedroom amongst his plants. 😎 AND I got to reconnect with Kendal Norris of @masonjareventgroup. You might have caught her most recent farm to table cannabis event in a little ol' magazine called Vanity Fair 😍😍. And this is just two of the many, many, many people who are out there getting shit done. We are normalizing the fuck outta this industry. #IAmACleverGent Other reasons to attend Women Grow parties… Your odds of seeing me belt out Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with the amazing WG staff are quite high!

13. #WCW, indeed.


14. Until next time.


15. Meanwhile…


Bonus! Couldn’t leave out this shot of Miley smoking … an empty bowl?
