CODES Cannabis to celebrate 816 Day, Kansas City’s Official Holiday, with dedicated cannabis strain and dispensary festivities

Limited-edition 816 strain will be available in stores across the state with 816 Day celebrations happening at the CODES Dispensary in Raymore, MO.

CODES, one of Missouri’s hottest new cannabis brands, today unveiled a limited-edition 816 strain in honor of 816 Day, Kansas City’s annual celebration of local culture that’s named after the city’s area code. 816 Day is all about celebrating local culture and connecting with the community, which inspired the team at CODES Cannabis to dedicate a strain that truly captures the city’s energy and vibrancy.

“Our cultivation team at CODES Cannabis is excited to share the 816 strain with our Kansas Citians. We fell in love with this strain as we were taking care of it. The 816 strain is gorgeous and hardy with a mix of dark green and light purple hues and an amazing coat of frosty-looking trichomes. We are especially excited about the flavors and aromas of this strain, and the rooms that she is growing in are filled with rich, earthy scents with notes of sweet, zesty citrus. We seriously can’t wait to share the 816 strain with Missouri,” said Jeremy Green, Director of Operations at CODES.

This hybrid strain was chosen due to its visual and sensory appeal, but it also mimics the energy of Kansas City with its relaxing but mood-boosting effects. The 816 strain is sold in special packaging that was designed with the area code in mind, so customers can enjoy the new strain and hold onto a token to remember the city-wide celebration.

In addition to the exciting strain release, CODES is participating in 816 Day with celebrations at CODES Dispensary in Raymore from 9 am to 3 pm. The 816 holiday was coined by Mayor Sly James on August 16, 2018 to celebrate Kansas City businesses, artists, and culture. On 816 Day, shoppers can enjoy food trucks, live music, giveaways, and a large raffle at CODES Dispensary in Raymore, located at 1905 W Foxwood Drive.
