You know Hempfest, the annual 3-day celebration at Myrtle Edwards Park, right? At one point they couldn’t even get anyone to rent them office space. Now they have a big new office and Hempfest retail store
on Lake City Way. They call the store a "hemp boutique and 420 culture specialty shop." This is your new one-stop spot for hemp-based products like hemp body lotion, hemp oil soap, hemp protein powder, and hemp mud masks, not to mention accessories for your pot smoking pleasure like hand-made pipes and bongs and “chronic art” created from rolling papers and Elmer’s glue. ("Dude, look what I made . . .")
Seriously, it shows how far this little festival has come, and how pot-friendly we are around here now. And it’s a great reason for a road trip to Lake City. The store’s called Hempfest Central.
