Philadelphia’s Hemp Heals Music Festival

Save the date! The Hemp Heals Music Festival takes place in Philly at Penn’s Landing Festival Pier on August 25th from 4pm-11pm.

As the name suggests this music event is unique in that it’s founded with a specific mission in mind. Former Philadelphia Flyers player Riley Cote is hosting the event with Live Nation in an effort to educate the public on the powers of holistic healing. He founded the non-profit org, The Hemp Heals Foundation after his younger sister, Jaime was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and found a way to treat and alleviate her symptoms through her diet – specifically through the use of hemp.

Hemp as a food source has been gaining notoriety in recent years, but many people may be unaware of how powerful these little seeds are.

Fun facts:

  • Hemp seeds contain all 10 amino acids
  • The seeds have a perfectly balanced ratio of 3.75:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids
  • Hemp seeds are the most complete protein source in the animal kingdom

When Riley reached out to us one of the first things he mentioned was the fact that people often get hemp confused with marijuana. (Of course I told him friend you are preaching to the choir.) But in all seriousness, I hope Riley’s foundation and the Hemp Heals Music Festival will help dispel some of the myths associated with hemp.

The event will feature like-minded musicians and vendors. The lineup includes Sublime with Rome, Cypress Hill, Pepper and more to be announced in the coming weeks. Other noteworthy folks who will be present include Emmy award-winning host, vegan chef, and cookbook author Christina PirelloHempzels hemp seed pretzels, Dr. Bronner’s, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Food & Oils, and much more!

Tickets are available for $49.50 now.
