Real Cannabis Plants to be Displayed at the Oregon State Fair
I have lived in Oregon my entire life. I love this state, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
Like many people my age, I grew up going to the Oregon State Fair. I would go to ride the rides, to play the carnival games, and to see all of the livestock and agricultural exhibits.
Oregon has a long history when it comes to agriculture. According to the Oregon Farm Bureau, Oregon leads the country in Christmas trees, hazelnuts, loganberries, black raspberries, ryegrass seed, orchard grass seed, crimson clover, sugar beets for seed, red clover seed, fescue seed, blackberries, boysenberries, potted azaleas, and peppermint.
History being made at the Oregon State Fair
Oregon has long been a leader in cannabis production, both in quality and quantity. With the exception of California, Oregon may produce the most cannabis out of any state in America, and the quality is second to none in my opinion.
Of course, no one knows for sure exactly how much cannabis is produced in each state in America, because a lot of growers don't disclose such information. Also, opinion in quality is subjective.
But there is a reason why guys like Jorge Cervantes and Jack Herer lived in Oregon. Oregon cannabis is very good, and the cannabis scene in Oregon is amazing, and growing every day.
For the first time ever, live cannabis plants will be on display at the Oregon State Fair, which is absolutely a reflection of the times.
As I said before, I have attended the Oregon State Fair many, many times, and to know that there will a live cannabis display for fair-goers over the age of 21 to see kind of gives me goosebumps to be honest!
Showing adults what award winning cannabis plants look like
A total of nine plants will be on display. The Oregon Cannabis Business Council is sponsoring the exhibit. The plants on display will be award winners from the Oregon Cannabis Grower's Fair, which is occurring at the Oregon State Fairgrounds August 13-14, about two weeks prior to the State Fair taking place.
The Oregon Cannabis Grower's Fair will involve 60 Oregon cannabis growers offering up the best that they have to offer. The judges will choose winners in various categories, and the winning plants will then be displayed at the Oregon State Fair.
It's about what award winning cannabis looks like, not consumption
The exhibit at the State Fair will not involve samples, and consumption will not be allowed. That is not why the organizers put together the event/exhibit.
"We are not promoting the use of cannabis," said Don Morse, chairman of the Oregon Cannabis Business Council, according to OregonLive.com. "We are there to show plants to people over 21 what award-winning cannabis plants look like."
