The High on Oakland Style goody bag unboxing experience along the Oakland Cannabis Trail is the cannabis-themed experience offering. High on Oakland Style goody bags feature a suite of hyper-local Oakland cannabis brands, craft, culture, and innovation.

Here are three tips for fun and fulfilling cannabis-infused Oakland Style week:

Make it a Getaway. Oakland Style is a Five-Day Series of over fifty-five immersive sensory experiences that any cannabis-infused adventure seeker will love.  Pick one or two anchor events and plan out a two-day travel itinerary.

Put the High on Oakland Style goody bag at the top of your list. On your day of arrival, prior to checking into your hotel, stop by any one of the four participating cannabis shops and pick up your High on Oakland Style cannabis goody bag to compliment your trip.  While supplies last, High on Oakland Style goody bags are available Rootd in the 510, Oakanna near Lake Merritt, Blunts & Moore, and Harborside.

Set aside a couple of hours in nature. After all, you are on the sunny side of the bay. Lake Merritt is an excellent atmosphere to relax.  An elevated late-morning picnic brunch lakeside is a worthy endeavor. Consider renting a boat and getting some time on the water. Enjoy the sunshine on the lake.
