Cannabis Budtending

High-Bar-Hospitality-&-Events-Group-Photo-credit-Katherine-HollandWeed, grass, herb, pot, there are many different names and forms of cannabis. Since legalization over a year ago, the smoke around serving it at public events, corporate gatherings in particular, is slowly beginning to dissipate and waft towards acceptance. Perfect timing then for High Bar Hospitality & Events Group, one of Ontario’s first full-service mobile budtending, catering and event-planning companies. CannSell and SmartServe certified, High Bar, its budtenders and sommeliers, are serious about legal protocols and guest safety. High Bar advises on the various serving methods and amounts based on event purpose, guest demographics and familiarity with cannabis. The client purchases recommended product directly from the Ontario Cannabis Store or other legally authorized retailer.

Education is paramount at High Bar’s elegantly styled sensory stations where guests sample wares – infused non-alcoholic drinks, edibles, vaping mixes, pre-rolls individually packaged in child-proof, odour-eliminating glass tubes, and more. Full-service can include outdoor consumption lounges, cannabis-friendly venue suggestions, and catering by partners like Encore Catering, and Toben Food by Design. Edibles and other infused-cuisine are served only at staffed stations, however, intimate private dining events can be arranged. Five percent of the company’s profits go to community initiatives, environmental projects and other charities.
