CLAREMONT CLUB & SPA October 23, 2022 

BERKELEY, CA – September 21, 2022 – By popular demand, Limewood at Claremont Club & Spa in partnership with Cultivating Spirits is continuing the Enlightened Dinner Series. A curated meal and desired cannabis high is on the menu Sunday, October 23, 2022, in the al fresco Limewood  Bungalow. 

CashoM’s Philip Wolf will serve as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies. Guests will be seated at community-inspired long tables, where they will enjoy cannabis strains that epitomize the terroir of  Northern California. 

Mirayo by Santana, a line of premium sun-grown products focused on the spiritual effects of cannabis will provide the cannabis for the dinner. Carlos Santana, the ten-time GRAMMY Award-winning guitarist, is a longtime cannabis advocate. The story of Mirayo begins in Mexico, where Santana’s mother used cannabis in her regimen of holistic solutions for various ailments. The name Mirayo is a  combination of “my” and “ray” in Spanish, which honors Santana’s Latin heritage and hopes to  empower everyone to “follow your light.” “In my experience, cannabis has special properties that enhance meditative reflection and creative expression. It can dispel negative doubt to reveal the everlasting gift of our uniqueness,” said Carlos Santana. “With Mirayo, I hope to help people use  cannabis as a door to a more benevolent behavior like kindness and compassion.”

The dinner will cameo the talented, powerhouse phenomenon musical artist & entertainer, AshEL,  who represents the rainbow spectrum of sound and influences. “Playing songs for people is super fun.  It is that simple. I love music- all kinds… this allows me to share that love.” Originally from Chicago,  now residing in Oakland, Ca. He is the founder of Soulestial Church, a sacred activist movement providing medicinal music, workshops, and ceremonies for healing the people and the Earth.  

Enlighted Dinner experiences priced at $220.00 inclusive of gratuity, excluding tax. Please note that cannabis sold separately. (Total cost of $220.00 per person will be posted in two transactions;  Transaction I- $185 inclusive of meal and gratuity; Transaction II, charge of $35.00 to go to our dispensary partner. Cannabis will be delivered from the dispensary day of the event, which will include  one gram of each selected strain.) 

Epicurean food is more delicious paired with the right wine: Imagine the mind-blowing deliciousness of a skilled match-up of expertly prepped food and top-shelf cannabis. Pairings are perfected through smoking- harmonizing the flavors to enhance the meal.  

“Cultivating Spirits finds the closest parallel to cannabis in wine culture and prides itself on pairings”,  shares Philip Wolf, Founder and CEO of Cultivating Spirits. “Having an organization like Claremont step into the culinary cannabis world shows the progression and de-stigmatization of cannabis. This  dinner will be another step forward into the exploratory world of culinary cannabis experiences.”
