Jason Pinsky

Gaming Video Creator & Producer

Jason Pinsky's diverse career in music, technology, food and cannabis is often self-described in a four point geometric configuration known as The Pinsky Triangle. The former Chief Cannabis Evangelist at Eaze and Cannabis Producer for VICELAND's Bong Appétit was a prolific cannabis connoisseur starting in 1994 when he judged the first High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. In 2014, after a decade of opioid dependency due to a spinal injury, Pinsky used cannabis to help wean himself off pain medication completely. His story and advocacy lead to his participation in the passing of New York State's Compassionate Care Act and in 2016 he helped expand the program to include chronic pain as a qualifying condition for patient access.

Pinsky's technology background dates to 1993 as a founder of Image Info, creator of technology solutions for the fashion industry and Haze City, consultation provider of digital and live music strategies for major music artists. Pinsky is also a partner of Fette Sau, Zagat rated number one for BBQ in NYC since 2005.

The Future of Cannabis Festivals and Events Presented by High NY

October 15, 2021, 6:00:00 PM

With Cannabis legalization sweeping across the East Coast, and COVID-19 concerns still in the air, how can festival and event organizers integrate Cannabis into cutting edge and authentic cultural programming? We intend to discuss the future of Cannabis events and festivals including: considerations for Cannabis activations in a post-COVID world; how mainstream music, food, tech and entertainment events can integrate Cannabis; creating sophisticated and accessible Cannabis experiences for various demographics; how to honor and maintain Cannabis (counter) culture while also bringing it to the mainstream; and what kind of unique new hybrid Cannabis experiences we might see in the next few years.
