An ode to their continued efforts to remain at the forefront of an evolving festival circuit, the West Coast’s premier multi-experiential event, Enchanted Forest Gathering (EFG) unveils an innovative partnership with seed-to-shelf NorCal cannabis manufacturer & distributor, CannaCraft and leading online cannabis telehealth platform, PrestoDoctor. Dubbed The Emerald Forest, the trailblazing venture will be one of the many immersive environments found within the enchanting wooded grounds and the only festival location to boast a cannabis-friendly zone, designed specifically with the gathering’s core audience in mind.

Last year EFG made waves across the festival community by announcing an on-site dispensary for the 2016 event, advocating and promoting holistic practices of vitality through access to cannabis for those attendees authorized for legal use of cannabis. Uniting with CannaCraft and PrestoDoctor for the 7th annual gathering at Black Oak Ranch in Laytonville, CA this June 9-11, Enchanted Forest Gathering is elevating previous year’s initiatives through the creation of The Emerald Forest, where educational, cannabis-centric workshops, an on-site medical marijuana evaluation center provided by PrestoDoctor, and, of course, an abundance of laughs will be up for exploration.

PrestoDoctor will use their industry leading telemedicine technology to connects doctors to patients via iPads within The Emerald Forest to offer free 215 prescription evaluations to attendees in celebration of the inaugural Emerald Forest - Pre-register online today to secure your on-site appointment.

Supplementing the unprecedented opportunity to be evaluated on-site are over 20 leading cannabusiness vendors, innovative keynote speakers, and new comedy stage, the LOLounge, topping the long list of areas to discover within the confines of EFG’s latest endeavor. Guests who enter The Emerald Forest can also enjoy a full-service hookah lounge, interactive presentations of “The Great Bingo Revival,” and “The Game Show Show,” and, if they’d like to leave a lasting impression at this year’s event, can sign up to participate in the “That Reminds Me....” Storytelling Show with industry themes such as “That One Time at Trim Camp...”

Celebrating roots in Northern California’s Mendocino County, CannaCraft and the Enchanted Forest Gathering embrace the region’s heritage as the birthplace of Prop 215, the revolutionary piece of legislation that legalized the cultivation and sale of cannabis and cannabis products for use as medicine in California in 1996. Since that time, CannaCraft has become a worldwide leader in medical cannabis products; creating the popular brands AbsoluteXtracts, Care By Design, and Satori Chocolates, all the while, continuing to focus on patient wellness, education, and consultation and now bringing this movement to Enchanted Forest Gathering for a sublime weekend.

EFG’s Emerald Forest is the latest element in a masterpiece collection of offerings at this year’s festival, where attendees will also be able to witness the only California and Oregon performance by godfather of glitch and bass music, Tipper, one of two appearances on the West Coast in 2017. Joining Tipper in the myriad of lineup additions is innovative international bass act Opiuo plus Isaac Chambers an emerging, breakout artist from New Zealand. These artists round out an already-impressive lineup that features Noisia, The Polish Ambassador, Tokimonsta, The Funk Hunters, Dimond Saints, The Floozies, The Pimps of Joytime, T Sisters, Sunsquabi, Scott Pemberton Band, and over 100 more musical acts.

Step into the mesmerizing realm Enchanted Forest Gathering builds annually and construct your own adventure. With four stages featuring live and electronic music, daily yoga classes, dance and flow arts instruction, and first class workshops on topics like Health & Wellness, Relationships & Sexuality, and Science & Spirituality, Enchanted Forest Gathering inspires attendees to embody their highest and truest spirit. Within the embrace of a safe, alcohol-free environment promoting a “Get saucy, not sauced!” policy plus continued and elevated 215 initiatives, the 2017 gathering is slated to cement a lasting imprint on the legendary grounds for years to come.
