SF Hash Week celebrates 710 with exclusive drops

San Francisco is a hub for many cultures, cannabis included. This past 4/20, the city was ablaze by SF Weed Week. Cannabis journalist David Downs created the event series to showcase the best growers in the state in the city’s favorite lounges. This 710, he’s doing the same with 420’s oil-drenched sibling hash at SF Hash Week.

“Modern hash offers some of the most intense, legal experiences on the planet. And San Francisco is the only place on Earth where you can attend a week-long hash festival that’s fully legal with all the perks. We’re so stoked,” Downs said in a press release.

Weed Week, and ultimately Hash Week, were inspired by Amoeba Music in-store concerts. Artists drop into the record store and play for real fans gathered among the shelves. Hash Week is equally intimate and star-studded, connecting beloved creators with their adoring audiences.

Celebrating where hash and culture meet

Events kick off on 7/10 with two hash releases and the opening of MACRO-DOSE, an exhibit by cannabis macro photography pioneer Kandid Kush. Mid-day Royal Key Organics will drop Black Rainbow Piss hash rosin at Chronic Culture HQ in the South of Mission area (SoMA) before things move five blocks north to Moe Greens for the art opening. Non profit glass artist collective Oiled Glass Gallery will also have over 50 pipes by 40 artists on display all week alongside the Kandid Kush gallery.

Come nightfall, lay eyes on the highly anticipated Arcata Fire x LANTZ rosin release in the 12-piece macro photography showcase. This is but one night of the seven-day event running through the 17th.

Attend every sesh to celebrate seven drops of excellent hash amid art, music, giveaways, and food. One draw from Weed Week bound to carry over to Hash Week is an unspoken appreciation for the city. San Francisco is a cultural cornerstone for American cannabis culture, and these week-long rides for Bay Area pot take visitors and locals to lesser-celebrated corners of the place.

SF Hash Week Founding Advisor Shannon McInerney was born and raised in San Francisco and loves hash. Sharing the charm of San Francisco with visitors is something she loves about these events.

“It gives me such pride to share this facet of the city with the world. We have some of the tastiest, more potent experiences in cannabis, and people are going to have a blast,” said McInerney.

Explore San Francisco with Hash Week

Opportunities to explore local restaurants, shops, and sites are plentiful throughout the week. This series of exclusive hash drops will take visitors through lesser-traveled neighborhoods of San Francisco, each with treasured local spots waiting to be found after a wicked good dab.

Try Ember Valley Rosin at Flore in the Castro district, where activists fought for medical cannabis during the AIDS epidemic. After grabbing pancakes at Orphan Andy’s across from Castro MUNI station, hop on the N train to Solful where legendary extractor Harry Rose is dropping something special.

Like Weed Week, Hash Week will have stoners bopping all over town. But unlike Weed Week, there are East Bay events among these festivities. Take BART or the bridge to visit Exit Now in Richmond for drops from Canna Country x Fire King, followed by Hash and Flowers to cap off the week.

The full hashmaker lineup includes Kalya, 710 Labs, HolyWater, Nasha, Mountain Man Melts, and Errl Hill with special guests like Space Gems and Fig Farms. Events move around between Flore, Solful, Moe Greens, Exit Now, SPARC, Mission Cannabis Club, Marina Greens, 7 Stars, California Street Cannabis Company, and Urbana locations in Mission and Geary.

Hash Week is not only riding the success of Weed Week. It is building onto it. Stick around for Dab-e-oke at TAISHOSF on Sunday, an afternoon party featuring karaoke, dabs, food, and friends. This isn’t the only food infusion at Hash Week. The Front Porch, known for their Southern cooking like chicken and waffles, will post up at Urbana and Moe Greens plans to serve culinary offerings from Fermentation Lab. Festivities all over the city start on Wednesday, July 10th, and run through the 17th.
