First Smoke Of The Day Hosts 2024 Family Reunion In Los Angeles

On Saturday, February 24th, their annual Family Reunion event returned to the city of Los Angeles, serving as “a day of cannabis culture, chill vibes, music, and community!” The turnout was incredible, transforming Penthouse Day Club in the heart of Hollywood, California into a full-blown sesh. There was even a female aerialist swinging on a swing up high from the ceiling inside, providing entertainment for all those in attendance.

All the most fire vendors and brands were present, including Parlay, The Kush Factory, Fidel’s, Gotti, LA Family Farms, and more. The First Smoke of the Day booth was hard to miss, featuring both co-hosts’ brands, as well as swag from the podcast.

What Is Blackleaf Founder Lance Saying About First Smoke Of The Day's 2024 Family Reunion?

The right side was Blackleaf, with the brand’s founder Lance busy selling his eighths and hash holes for $30 a piece. He also had beautiful rolling trays that read: “Roses are red, violets are blue, but in the shadows, Black Flowers Grew…”

Lance states, “I’m happy everyone comes through. I get to connect with people that don't get out of the garden, that don't get out of the trap. That are hustling 365. They take a break, they show up here and everyone connects. The collabs, everything birthed out of this project. I love to see it. It's a year-long wave that starts now, and goes through the rest of the year. That's collabs, people linking off business. State to state, country to country.”

What Is Cody From Pack Gods Saying About First Smoke Of The Day's 2024 Family Reunion?

On the other side of the booth was Cody from Pack Gods, who was also selling his eighths for $30. In fact, his KMZ strain quickly sold out within the first hour.

“We collaborate with the entire industry, so this is a time for everybody to come together,” Cody affirms. “Network, enjoy, party, celebrate. Ultimately have a good time. We appreciate everybody coming out, and appreciate anyone that fucks with the project. Means a lot, we’ll keep it poppin’! Let’s go.”

What’s beautiful is the fact that both Lance and Cody are from Florida, but throw events in both New Work and Los Angeles — a true reminder that cannabis is universal. For those located in the East Coast, they do a 4/20 brunch each year. (Last year’s gathering made our list of the best 420 events in New York City!)

As the invite reads: “It's not just the first smoke of the day; it's the one that sets the tone for the rest of the year.”
