Despite some confrontational letters and worried citizens, the Inaugural North West Cannabis Classic took place at the Anchorage downtown Dena’ina Center some 3 months after marijuana’s legalization, Alaska had become the 3rd state in the union to legalize the substance.  Anchorage was the first stop for the “classic” tour and promised a memorable experience for vendors and visitors alike. Participates would learn about innovative products, have up close demonstrations and hear from the leaders in the industry through informative workshops, competitions and lectures.

The Dena’ina’s sprawling 45,000 sq ft gave way to vendor booths, exhibitors, and cannabis businesses from around the state and a few from across the country. The Cannabis Classic also offered a 21 and older “vape” lounge and live band performances. Local rap rockers Alaska Thunder Funk entertained attendees inside, as most had access to some of the most innovative products in the industry including: art, glass, soils, lights, jewelry and samples.

The North West Cannabis Classic was billed as the states first educational event and trade fair. And among the events many draws, the biggest was its cannabis competition. Specialty growers and vendors from all around the state signed up and submitted the states best cannabis to be judged in categories ranging from best hybrid to best edibles.
