Recap of the January 15th "Starting from Seed" event

Thank you to all the awesome cannabis enthusiasts who braved the cold to join us for an unforgettable night! We kicked off our highly-anticipated grow-at-home class in the heart of Uptown Minneapolis, and it was a blast. Canna Connect and MN Cannabis College teamed up to present Logi Bloom to our fantastic group of over fifty guests at The Wilderness Coworking Center. We spread the word through our Facebook and email list as well as we worked closely with Cat Franklin of Suga Canna Company to create an irresistible package for consumers. It was such a hit that the class sold out! A big shoutout to Minnesota Veterans for Cannabis for sponsoring the livestream and reaching veterans all across the state. We even had over 10 viewers tuning in!

As with most Minnesota Cannabis College grow classes, we had early birds lining up before the event even started, creating a fun challenge as we waited for Cultivated CBD to open up the Speakeasy. Once we got the speakeasy doors open, we dove into introductions and networking, creating a lively and social atmosphere.

Tanner Berris from the Minnesota Cannabis College kicked off the presentation with a brief introduction on January 15th, 2024, at 7:10 pm. He then passed the mic to Stefan and Cat, who together delivered a ninety-minute presentation on starting your cannabis growing journey from seed.

During this mind-blowing event, Stefan Egan captivated the audience for over ninety minutes, breaking down an impressive 35 pages of slides. While, Cat Franklin wowed us all with her incredible journey and shared the real-life events behind the creation of the legendary Gorilla Glue 4 "GG 4".

We covered some essential topics that every cannabis grower should know, including Seeds 101, Starting Seeds, Caring for Seeds, The Common Pitfalls, and How to Get Started. It was an information-packed session that left everyone inspired and ready to start their own cannabis garden.
