International Church of Cannabis Becomes First
Church to Host “Cannabis-Friendly” Weddings

DENVER, May 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Elevation Ministries, a Colorado non-profit religious organization, today announced that it will become the first ever church to offer wedding services in a “cannabis-friendly” environment. The weddings will take place at the newly renovated International Church of Cannabis (“the Church”) in Denver, Colorado.

The Church officially opened up its membership on April 20, 2017 and attracted more than 800 members in only two weeks – many of whom have already inquired about the potential to get married in the beautiful and historic 113 year-old chapel.

“We thought there would be interest from people wanting to get married at the church, but we never expected such a response,” said Lee Molloy, a spokesperson for the Church. “The demand from couples interested in celebrating their wedding with us in a “cannabis-friendly” environment has been far greater than ever expected. We are truly excited to start turning those dreams into realities.”

The 13,000 square foot church has been exquisitely renovated – the outside facade decorated by legendary Los Angeles artist Kenny Scharf, while the chapel ceiling was beautifully painted by Spanish artist, Okuda San Miguel. These incredible, world-class works of art provide an extraordinarily stylish and unique backdrop to any couple who desire their wedding photography to be the stuff of legend.

And, one very lucky couple – due to the significance of being the first couple to book their special day at the Church – is going to be gifted the cost of this unique wedding venue by Bang Digital Media, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bang Holdings Corp (OTCQB:BXNG), one of the industry’s leading digital marketing and public relations organizations.

“We are thrilled to be part of one beautiful couple’s love story,” Steve Berke, CEO of Bang Digital Media said. “This church is the first in the world where adults can legally partake of their nuptials while consuming cannabis with their family and friends.

Interested couples can register for a chance to win the wedding on the Church’s website: www.elevationists.org.  Although the free Bang Digital Media-sponsored wedding will officially be the first to be held at the Church, three other wedding packages are currently available via the Church’s Indiegogo fundraising campaign. They are being offered for a discounted rate of $4,200.

Church members are called Elevationists. Our lifestance is that an individual’s spiritual journey, and search for meaning, is one of self-discovery – and one that may be accelerated and deepened with cannabis use.
