The cannabis industry is starting to take a new direction, with it becoming increasingly less taboo to see CBD [Cannabidiol] products and accessories being sold. The owner of Pretty Rolls Nikita Seal, is bringing a safe place for vendors and conversations about cannabis growth. Being invited out to the CBD and Hemp Vendor Expo was a great opportunity to get a glimpse into the growing cannabis industry in Dallas.
When I walked into the expo, I felt a positive energy radiating from everyone present. It was very comforting and educational to learn about the different items that were being sold. What I discovered was that the only items that were being sold were for recreational usage, for holistic use and pets. One of the vendors that stood out to me was Lyfted Lemonade, who’s from Houston, TX. She makes her lemonade fresh and perfectly blended, which makes her lemonade taste refined. She even gives you the option to buy sugar to sprinkle onto your favorite snack.
Something I was proud to see was that there are a lot of women in CBD and hemp businesses. When I got a chance to talk to the host and Owner of Pretty Rolls Nikita Seal She explained that this will be the first of many events that she would love to put together. She wants to encourage conversations in Dallas about cannabis use, also bringing the community together.
I can honestly tell you between Nikita Seal and the vendors, this was a perfect way to spend a Thursday night. The art and food were cohesive with the theme. It provided an educational and practical knowledge that I have gained from the event and the great snacks that I enjoyed were amazing. They were even Pretty Roll girls walking around the event serving different CBD treats.
