Hemp Heals - Riles Cote

I met Riles Cote before he set this event in motion, Hempy to be a small part of his-story too.

 
 

2012 We are Pysched

Meeting Riles Cote at my LTH HQ's in  Columbia, PA was where the adventure began. We discussed his vision called Hemp Heals Music Festival and would I like to participate?  heck yeah! I made some phone calls to Les Stark, Byrn Gohn and my other buddies to get the word out in the hemp community that I personally knew.

Les was so excited & encouraged me to make a clip of this - we hope you enjoy it - My His-story, hempy to have been involved in a small part..

PhillyVoice -Inquirer

"If you walk around to all the tents and the vendors, you’ll see a lot of the different faces of cannabis and hemp," Cote said. "You’ll see hemp clothing, skin and hair products, hemp paper, you’ll see a guy from Lancaster who sells a hemp pretzel. He calls them Hempzels. .

2016 Philadelphia Voice

"If you walk around to all the tents and the vendors, you’ll see a lot of the different faces of cannabis and hemp. You’ll see hemp clothing, skin and hair products, hemp paper, you’ll see a guy from Lancaster who sells a hemp pretzel. He calls them Hempzels. So it’s also inspiring young entrepreneurial minds and giving them a tool and a resource to use in a different, innovative and eco-friendly way."

The money from the event -- the festival raised $8,000 last year -- goes toward educating people about the uses and benefits of hemp, like the workshop they held last year to teach around 20 local builders how to build with HempCrete, a natural building material.
