El Paso-based Buena Vida Wellness is coordinating the city’s first Hemp and CBD Wellness Fair this weekend.
Organizers say the aim of the fair, which will run from 11:00am to 8:00pm on August 31, 2019 at Sunland Park Mall, is to educate the public regarding hemp and CBD.
To that end, there will be a variety of guest speakers such as Dr. Armando Gutierrez, who will be lecturing on the Endocannabinoid System and how the hemp extract cannabidiol (CBD) works in humans and animals.
The event will also feature doctors and professionals presenting the health benefits of hemp extracts and their medicinal properties.
Buena Vida, along with The 915 Pop Up Market, gathered local vendors who offer a variety of CBD-based and hemp-derived products, such as tinctures, topical remedies, and clothing.
The free event will feature live artist painting, along with musicians sharing their talent with the community. Additionally, a variety of CBD-infused foods will be available for sale as well, including cupcakes and baked goods, fresh fruit palettas and slush drinks.
Sponsors for the event include: A Vida Matcha, Crafted Cultivars, Sun City CBD Health and Wellness, Cordial Organics, El Sol Wellness, CBD Holistics, El Paso Tranont, Alegro, Balanced Practice LLC, Risen Tattoo, Blue Organica, Desert Wild Bath and Body.
Buena Vida Wellness reminds shoppers they must be age 18 and over to purchase CBD products in the state of Texas.
