The Los Angeles BIG Show includes some major names including Crop King Seeds, Weedmaps and Dime Bags. Also included in the show is a glass art galleria exhibition.
And here’s the hot tip about the event. Tickets to the BIG Show are free and, while pre-registration is definitely recommended, will also be available onsite. These tickets will get you access to the entire showroom floor, the High Times trade show booths included, and you can upgrade onsite to also be included in the seminar portion of the event. If you feel you can skip the seminars, free registration with the BIG Show will get you into all the action. That means over 400 cannabis exhibitors (and a whole lot of people who love cannabis) are accessible at no cost to those who decide to join in. We’ll see you in LA.
