;-) I had an idea last year just before the expo that was a huge hit. Imagine your at an Cannabis EXPO and someone offers you a "little baggie full of dried green stuff"! That is exactly what I did last year and I had them running to my booth when their eyes caught my samples! On the other side of the baggie is my business card (below) and it says on it CATNIP> L.O.L That is what I give out CATNIP for your furry feline friends. It usually gives everyone quite a chuckle once they realize it is Not what they thought it was. So it's a nice ice breaker! I also have to say most people laughed and kept my business cards - most people have cats! So it is a great idea if I do say so myself for pennies ;-) and I'm making many little kitties happier! hee hee hee
This EXPO is about many things to US.
ONE: EDUCATION for us to become educated and hopefully to Educate a few people. A better word would be to share our experience and encourage people to Educate themselves. It is the only way you truly learn something when you are curious to do so. We all know that from all the useless stuff we learned in High School ;-) We learned best what we were most interested in. I have patients come and share info with me. Some have become good friends.Last year Storm learned about a few different strains that really helped with his "body pain". When you are in chronic pain it is nice to be able to control the body pain and some strains also make you feel good too. THIS is very important. It makes me shake my head when they (BIG PHARM) says they can make cannabis that takes the "high" feeling out.
When you suffer with health issues you have much to think about. A little mental feel GOOD is just as important as the physical aspects. Ask anyone who is suffering with pain daily in their life. How it can take its toll on you some days. Sadly some people it takes it's toll on them and they no longer feel they can continue.
We get so socialize, see friends that we don't get to see that often! Check out all the cool stuff, cannabis related and other, get some amazing clothing. I am going to invest in something HEMP for myself ;-) Storm gets to meet some incredible people who love Gardening and Cannabis. People who really know their stuff and are as passionate as he is. His passion is learning about the plant. It always has been - you should see our vegetable garden this year! ;-)) We laugh - I get to hang with the Green Reefer who make me laugh all the time with his simple e mails over the past year - he is coming to visit us tomorrow for a couple of days! I did not warn him that this is a house that does NOT sleep in.. hee hee
*the one thing is Norm does not get to come. We have a house full of animals! HOPE is a full time puppy!! So Norm stays home - Not to mention he has to get that pool ready for the HOT weather we are expecting!! LOL But I talk to him all the time and he is my sherpa - with set up and take down - He is also my personal set design and PROP man! LOL - I am so FRICKIN LUCKY! And he works for - peanuts .. wink wink, nudge nudge...
So I better get back to work and print my business cards I certainly don't want to let down any FELINE friends this year! * If anyone grows catnap and wants to donate some in exchange for some free advertising let me know for next year! This year is already bigger and better than last year so you know its just going to continue! Perhaps next year it will be legal! Perhaps one day I can hand out free sample of God's natural healing medicine! !! IMAGINE!
