The full Immersion pot party.
The full Immersion is a relaxing California pot party. It all started with 3 women: Katie Partlow of Little Face Events, Anya Matusevich and Sasha Perelman of Higher Beauty. Their focus is to provide guests with cannabis specific events that highlights the 5 human senses.
Some of Immersion’s events include blindfolding guests during dinner time, dipping into sound baths and inhaling essential oils. “I went to a few other cannabis events before, where it’s just really loud music, or the main activity is a bong-ripping contest. It feels awkward.”
Immersion vs. The Fyre Festival.
Immersion is something different, it’s a special event because its more than just a lame pot party. The Fyre Festival was a type of pot party that felt cheesy. The guests were promised a DJ, but instead they got to listen to someone’s MP3 playlist. The hosts of the Fyre Festival handed out free joints, but the large amounts of fruit flies ruined the session. Guests couldn’t leave the event when they wanted to because congestion blocked traffic.
Immersion is a cannabis party that is better organized and provides a clean and comfortable setting for guests. Immersion is a party where they serve weed. They provide activities where people dance, socialize, watch a simple sports game in the sun, etc. There is no random loud music and crowds of strangers running into each other.
Immersion is the next level of classy pot parties.
The Immersion crew wanted to create an experience that is not otherwise possible at a bar. Like having dinner blindfolded. It may seem strange but clients say the experience is enlightening. All private conversations cease once 75 people have blindfolds on. Blindfolding guests just for dinner time creates a comfortably intimate atmosphere.
The atmosphere at Immersion wasn’t about having tables filled with only popular strains of weed. “When people focus too much on the weed brands it feels off. People ask almost like, is this a trade show? I don’t like too heavy branding at all,” Partlow said. Smoking weed can ruin the normal flow of conversation, so the hosts of Immersion try to limit the amount of conversations during weed-themed events.
Partlow has experience hosting cannabis themed parties.
Partlow is not a novice when it comes to throwing a classy pot party. Partlow hosted an event in 2016 called Comedy, Cake & Cannabis. Inside there was an exhibit of frosting and fondant-twisted art. All while Los Angeles comics, Kate Berlant and Brandon Wardell, where making guest laugh hysterically.
Other parties Partlow hosted have similar themes, like the CannaMiss Marquez party. At that event burlesque dancers where wearing weed shaped green feathers. The dancers stripped down to tasseled green pasties while smoking a joint. Partlow said, “I want to do something at the next level, just getting people up and moving and not just sitting and high. You can stay home for that, you know?”
