Veritas Cannabis All-Stars: Here’s How This Fan Scored Big With Our Special MLB Promo
Fresh from the hot Arizona desert, 24-year old Angel Rodriguez received a warm Colorado welcome by seeking out Colorado’s finest cannabis. After purchasing a Veritas All-Star Joint Pack, he won himself tickets to the 2021 MLB All-Star game in Denver.
As our national pastime, we’ve come to mark the milestones of the summer season with baseball significance. The best example of this tradition is arguably the Midsummer Classic, better known as the MLB All-Star Game. When the team at Veritas learned that this year’s installment would be played at the Colorado Rockies’ own homebase of Coors Field, we knew we had to do something special to celebrate.
The answer: our limited edition All-Star Joint Pack, which dropped at over 40 dispensaries across Colorado. Decorated in homage to Denver’s hometown team, each keepsake can came with three all-star caliber 1g joints, a rally towel and a lighter. But that wasn’t all—each joint pack also had a code that could be entered for a chance to win two tickets to the July All-Star Game.
We loved seeing the amount of participation in this promo, but when the stakes are this high, there can only be one winner. For 24-year-old Angel Rodriguez, he found himself taking home the prize. Rodriguez, who just moved to Colorado from Arizona this summer, has a fascinating story to share:
How long have you been in Denver?
I officially moved to Denver on July 9.
What’s your personal relationship with cannabis like?
Overall, I’d say I’m a regular cannabis consumer—perhaps even more of a connoisseur. I’ve been enjoying cannabis for about five or six years, on and off. In terms of how I like to consume, I’m all about flower, concentrates and vaping on the go.
Were you familiar with Veritas Fine Cannabis before moving to Denver?
No, but I saw an advertisement for the All-Star Joint Pack on the front door of The Joint - Denver dispensary and knew I had to try it. I’d actually gone to that dispensary for a completely different product, but when I saw the flyer for the “three-strike joint cans,” I knew I had to get one.
You found a winning code in a Papaya Cake All-Star Joint Pack. Tell us about your experience with the Papaya Cake strain—was that your first time trying it? What did you like about it?
I don’t think it was my first time trying that strain—there are so many Cake crosses going around right now!—but it was definitely a must-have smoke. I found it to be very tropical with a sweet citrus taste to it. It also relaxed me immediately.

When you entered your contest code, did you have a good feeling that you might be our big winner?
Honestly, I wasn’t even thinking about the contest. I was more excited by what was inside of the can: the towel, joints and the lighter. Still, I went ahead and entered the code, just for fun. It felt like a win-win in my eyes because even if I didn’t win the tickets, I still had three joints and a cool towel.
How did it feel when you found out on the morning of the All-Star Game that you’d won two tickets?
I was questioning whether the call I got was even real! I honestly thought it was my buddy calling me. It wasn’t until I heard someone say, “Angel, congratulations!” that I knew it wasn’t my friend. A lot of things went through my mind, but probably the one that stuck with me the most was just, “Is this real?!”
What was it like to attend the All-Star Game as our lucky winner?
This was my first All-Star Game! It was an awesome experience. We had great seats right along center field. I went with my roommate and we were shot-gunning tall cans and munching out on loaded nachos. This was my third time at Coors Field, actually, but it was my first All-Star Game, so that made me feel like a newbie in the stadium. The energy in the stadium for this one was electric.
Now that you’ve had a chance to check out the brand and products, what do you dig most about Veritas?
The brand itself! The flower is amazing in terms of quality. It’s a very enjoyable smoke, topped off with some seriously badass packaging. I’m also following Veritas on Instagram now to make sure I know about all of their latest strains and drops. I can’t thank the people over at Veritas enough for picking me as the winner. Huge shout out to everyone there! I look forward to more smoke from Veritas.
