Beyond Stoned: Classical Music and Cannabis in Colorado

Share this with your friends

Colorado is indeed quite evolved when it comes to cannabis policy but culturally, the state is also very classy when it comes to events being paired together in a sophisticated fashion.

Colorado Symphony Orchestra is playing a series called “Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series”. There will be three summer fundraising events at Space Gallery in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District, and each event features performances by Colorado Symphony ensembles and exclusive menus from local food trucks.Classically-Cannabis-Web

Here now in 2014, we have a sure sign of mainstreaming cannabis in many ways beyond the cartoon-y Hollywood stereotype of the silly stoner (although those guys and gals seem nice, too).

Presented by Ideal 420 Soil, and sponsored by Gaia Plant-Based Medicine, The Farm of Boulder and Wellspring Collective, this event is classing up and welcoming the long-ignored but ever-present demographic of cannabis consumers who enjoy instrumental ensembles and delectable dishes, which will be organized by Edible Events, helmed by Jane West.

CEO Jerome Kern of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra told The Associated Press that in return for sponsorship, marijuana-related companies get “the legitimacy of being associated with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.”

Aha, but we must respectfully disagree. Cannabis brings major legitimacy. Billions of dollars worth of it, actually. Just the same, we are very pleased to see this develop, as the movement and industry speculated that this should be the natural course of things.

Megan Sanders of Gaia Plant-Based Medicine loves classical music and is quite proud to be a part of this beautiful series:

“Gaia is proud to sponsor the Colorado Symphony and participate in these historic events. This is yet another example of the many ways our company supports our community, charities, the arts, and most of all, our patients. Being good corporate citizens is an integral part of who we are.”
