DCCC Weekly blog #1

Welcome one and all to the official Durham City Cannabis Club blog on our shiny new website!

We'll be using this weekly blog to keep you up to date with all things DCCC and cannabis related with this weekly blog as well as weekly articles discussing cannabis and club news, Event write ups and educational articles about everyone's favourite plant.

This week has been spent getting the site finished and uploaded with the help of Mr Wizard, Our in house technical specialist and the architect behind DurhamCityCC.co.uk.

Please take a look around let us know what you think!

We've also started doing live stream videos on our Instagram and Facebook pages. The live streams will take place three times a week (with our protestival events being live streamed too!)

The videos will be streamed on Medicated Mondays, Wake and Bake Wednesdays and Fr-High-days. Each of the live streams will focus on a different topic and explore that particular subject more each week as a format emerges from the smoke.

Medicated Mondays - will focus primarily on the medicinal applications of cannabis. The various medical conditions it has been shown to help treat and ease there associated symptoms. We'll be discussing as a community why we all consume cannabis - providing a safe space for medical consumers to meet like minded individuals. The stream will also general be to educate about the Endocannabinoid system and how cannabinoids interact with it and help regulate health and well being.

Wake and Bake Wednesdays will be product and strain review based with topical conversations and catching up on the weeks news and events.

Fr-High-Days will simply be a live streamed smoke up and conversation consisting of Q&A's with the audience. We will eventually feature Special guests, Exclusive interviews and be streamed from multiple locations. (More details to be released soon!)

He ultimately utilised cannabis to aid his recovery and remission. He now hosts the Green Crush Podcast spreading cannabis truth every Tuesday live form down town Toronto.

  • Hempresent with Vivian McPeak on CannabisRadio.com Cannabis Radio is the premier online/podcast radio destination for all things cannabis.

Hosted by Vivian McPeak who organises and runs the worlds largest Hemp celebration in Seattle, Washington (https://www.hempfest.org/). The event was Founded in 1991 as the Washington Hemp Expo, a self-described "humble gathering of stoners" attended by only 500 people, and renamed the following year as Hempfest, it has grown into a three-day annual political rally, concert and arts and crafts fair with attendance typically over 100,000. Now in its 28th year Hempfest serves as a true inspiration to the club and evidence of just how big these events can grow when the organisers are as committed and passionate as Vivian.
