"After dinner, guests retreated to the music lounge for dessert – an orange, cinnamon, honey and date M’hencha (which means serpentine in Moroccan). I gobbled up the gooey, coiled baklava-style pastry, not realizing it packed the other half dosage of THC (5 mg). Again, the cannabis was so perfectly paired with the dessert’s ingredients, I didn’t taste any bitterness.
For the rest of the evening, we were encouraged to choose our own “experience.” There were performance artists, angel card readers, crystal energy divas, new age entertainers, a “high dutchess of hashish” – and the hopping hookah lounge.
I headed out to the darkness, where local artist Kyle Simon was drawing a crowd. His custom-built telescope pointed at the brilliant full moon, Simon rigged up a system that converts light waves into eerie sound. We stood transfixed as the moon wailed! Another highlight: Watching local glass artists Paul Kowan and Stephen Alan Hubbell doing a trance dance while shaping gorgeous smoking devices with blow torches.
By this time of the night, I expected to be surrounded by some hard-core stoners. Instead, everyone was mellow and making new friends. I left Moonlit just as @Barbie.Sommars.MJU promised, a little lighter and brighter, with a slight buzz and a swag bag of canna-goodies to share with my weed-loving friends.
I not only overcame my fear of cannabis, I learned how to enjoy it, too. And upon returning to my Airbnb, I tumbled into bed and had the best sleep of my life!" .
