The Nickel City Blitz, also known as CannaBlitz to those who attended, took place on Saturday, December 18 at Iron Works in Buffalo, New York to great success for many of the participating local cannabis connoisseurs.

Crowds of interested individuals packed into Iron Works starting at four in the afternoon when CannaBlitz officially began, excited to see what the uniquely Buffalo event had in store. Once inside, the venue opened up to two floors of local vendors of all varieties, each featuring informational pamphlets, samples, and information on the newly developing cannabis industry.

Cannabis industry professionals from all across Western New York were in attendance, showing off a huge variety of wares from home cultivation accessories and supplies, to infused products like lemonades and even Buffalo chicken wing dip. In addition to the cannabis-centric vendors, several local artists and retailers were showing off their customizable creations like Tracey’z Creativitie’z, a creative retail specialist that makes custom beauty trays, bracelets, and much more.

The spirit of the industry community shone bright as always among the crowd, where images of industry friends hugging and exchanging holiday gifts with one another was commonplace. Event host, former Buffalo Bills player Stevie Johnson, was on-site throughout the event as well, meeting with local vendors and posing for pictures with fans.
