2019 was the year of cannabis in the Coachella Valley as almost every event had some kind of weed related goodies for guests to enjoy. This year marked the first ever Honey House event from long time cannabis cartridge pioneers Honey Vape. Tucked away in the Cahuilla Hills, the Honey House took over a hillside estate overlooking a beautiful canyon, complete with multiple cabanas and infinity pool for everyone to enjoy.
We pulled up to the “valet” signs and were directed to park on the street at the base of the hills. Moments after getting out of our car, we were greeted by an extremely polite and courteous valet in a golf cart. That’s right! Our own personal golf carts!!! A quick ride up the rest of the hill took us to the entrance of the Honey House where the check-in desk was situated.
Something to note, unlike alcohol events, cannabis events require all attendees to fill out liability waivers before entering and after a quick flick of the pen we were given a cool bag of goodies and ushered into the Honey House.
The inside of the estate was filled with yum yums on every table and counter top.
The Honey House was a weed mecca. It seemed that everywhere you turned there was weed, weed and more weed. How about a stein of Zkittlez? Sure!!!
Or would you rather a goblet of blueberry buds? Yes please!!!
On top of all of the grab and go goodies inside, walking around the estate was a gal with a tray like the old time cigar/cigarette girls of the 20s and 30s, but instead of nasty tobacco, it was filled with pre-rolled joints from True Humboldt and NATIV.
Remember that goodie bag we got when we registered at the entrance? Well one of the coolest things inside were these svelte Honey Vape Kits that are all inclusive cigarette holder style cases with a high end multi-voltage 510 battery, charger and open slot for your Honey Vape cartridge. And yes, also in the bag was a random strain .5 gram HV cartridge, ready to go.
Honey House didn't disappoint with such an awesome bag of swag...
If you weren’t familiar with the Honey Vape brand, located in the middle of the scenic outdoor area was the concierge desk where you could sample any of the various yum yum cartridges in the HV arsenal.
True Humboldt had given me a yummy blueberry bud to take home (yay!) and while i was scrambling for plastic wrap to pack up the nugget, I bumped into the Honey Vape CEO, Peter Tejera who was kind enough to share this amazing, soon to be released 3:1 (CBD:THC) Blue Dream CBD cartridge. Oh yes, it's coming soon and it is awesome!!!
Also making its debut was the INDItrudose pen…What is this sorcery you speak of? During our stay at the Honey House we were treated to a demonstration of a game changing device for CBD users. As an avid daily user of CBD oil, I find the only downside of CBD is the cumbersome and tedious “oil dropper” system of tinctures. Because sublingual (under the tongue) drops are the most effective way to deliver CBD into your body, tinctures are a must. A few problems plaguing droppers are safety caps tend to strip quickly so opening bottles becomes impossible, proper dosage is hard to get right since droppers are not 100% accurate, tincture bottles are bulky, heavy and can break easily, wasting hundreds of dollars of CBD and doing drops in public can be a little daunting with so many conservative disapproving eyeballs out in public. The INDItrudose pen we tried was and is a GAME CHANGER when it comes to CBD dosing. With its innovative design, all of the aforementioned issues and concerns are no longer a problem.
INDItrudose pens are coming and they will revolutionize how CBD users get their daily doses. Keep an eye out for a full on in-depth review to come closer to their launch date, but to give you the skinny, taking a dose was as easy as the click of a pen. WE ARE DEFINITE FANS!!!
What’s a party without a bar? Not a party. This party had two bars on site to cater to any and all alcoholic desires. Splash Mixers brought their deliciously low calorie, low sugar and completely organic and kosher mixers to the desert to keep everyone marinated.
Remember when Coachella was annoyingly infested with floral crowns? This year these were the only crowns we loved seeing, smelling and eventually smoking...
Our stay at the Honey House came to an end as the sun slowly set behind the Taquitz Canyon. This event was easily one of our favorites this year and how could it not be when you had three days of cannabis, cocktails and honey…
Many thanks to our honey-sweet host Peter Tejera and the Honey House crew!
See you next year!
