SECRET SESH HAS GROWN WITH CALIFORNIA’S CANNABIS INDUSTRY INTO A FULL-BLOWN CULTURAL PHENOMENON—AN INTERVIEW WITH CEO TIM BROWN
If you’ve been a part of California’s cannabis industry since the Prop 215 days, you know that Secret Sesh is the original sesh. They’ve been the home for industry members to gather for educational, professional, and recreational reasons since the beginning of legal weed in California. They’ve since grown alongside the industry into a full-blown festival with cannabis at the epicenter. Secret Sesh brings together an elite community of cannabis enthusiasts while also emphasizing on art, music, education, and communal games.
Secret Sesh grew organically along with its young CEO, Tim Brown, over the last seven years. From his days working at a lounge to managing a hash bar, he’s always been hustling to give cannabis lovers a place to gather and call home. They’ve since become a fully licensed, BCC compliant, and legal event. Despite having thrown only two festivals since cannabis Prop 64 became a daily reality, they’ve been able to comfortably seat themselves in California’s recreational cannabis culture.
Since gaining their license, Secret Sesh threw their first legal event at Adelanto Stadium last year on June 1st. Over 5,000 cannabis enthusiasts came out to partake in the festivities, with the second garnering an audience of well over 8,000. The fact that this party has grown (with zero outside investors) from operating out of mansions and apartments to a literal stadium is worth noting. This is the kind of event that has built a loyal, and powerful following that respects its contribution to the industry and culture of cannabis.
