OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 1, 2017
/PRNewswire/ -- Join Oaksterdam University and the organizers
Rastafari Rootzfest has become Jamaica's premier cannabis event based on the blending of education, the Ganjamaica Cup competition, local and international cannabis experts, authentic roots rock reggae music, and spiritual and physical wellness teachers.
Scheduled on December 15-17, 2017, in Negril Jamaica, Rastafari Rootzfest 2017 will feature numerous wellness coaches, spiritual teachers, yoga and meditation instructors, organic "Ital" master chefs, healing herbalists and personal life coaches. Experts from Oaksterdam University will be on hand teaching sessions focused on the cannabis plant from seed germination to harvest, research, bi-products development, legalization and export. Representatives from the Jamaican business development sector will also be present offering their consulting services. These activities will run concurrent to the other facets of the festival such as live demonstrations and local crafts, jewels and wears for sale.
In addition to the educational focus of the festival, top international reggae acts including Capleton, Jah Mason, Kabaka Pyramid, Bushman, Iba Mahr, Leroy Sibbles and more will perform each night. Nyahbinghi drumming and chanting will fill the air by the shores of Negril's famous seven-mile beach strip throughout the festival.
Rootzfest will culminate with the highly anticipated Ganjamaica Cup ceremony and will present awards to top growers and producers of the best tested marijuana and its bi-products in varying categories of exclusively Jamaican ganja strains judged by local and international experts.
Rootzfest is in step with Rastafari Livity, which has long been synonymous with mental and physical stamina, and is evident in the country's persistent and unwavering use and advocacy of cannabis and adherence to living an organic lifestyle. In Rastafari style, the festival will also share how to de-stress and live a healthy organic lifestyle through deep meditation, yoga and other relaxation techniques.
The organizers of Rastafari Rootzfest look forward to the many visitors who descend upon Negril's shores to experience this event each year and as such will have special packages available to include accommodations and event fees for activities as well as seminars and expos.

About Oaksterdam University: Since 2007, when Oaksterdam University became the first cannabis college in the United States, it has been the forerunner in providing the highest quality training to people interested in a career in the cannabis industry and the first institution to address the growing needs of the marijuana movement, from patients to regulators. Such a focus has established Oaksterdam University as the only cannabis college with a comprehensive curriculum in cannabis business and horticulture available today. In addition to training individuals wanting to get into the cannabis industry, OU trains regulators including city council members, state agencies, and government officials as well as state evaluators overseeing medical marijuana license applications. Oaksterdam University's scope into research and development has expanded through partnerships with the Oregon Health Research Institute as well as with the University of West Indies. Our faculty is comprised of professionals, academics and entrepreneurs, and OU alumni—over 25,000 from over 30 countries who have received training regarding cannabis and marijuana policy reform—are the most active in the world.
