The Stone Age, New York City’s premiere immersive, multi-sensory cannabis experience, will welcome its first ticket holders on October 1st Located at 607 Avenue of the Americas in the Flatiron District. The limited-run pop-up is designed to offer participants a unique, captivating experience dedicated to cultivating awareness on the wellness and lifestyle benefits of cannabis.
Utilizing 9,000-square-feet, The Stone Age features eight thought-provoking installations designed to take visitors on a cannabis-inspired journey. Through partnerships with local and nationally recognized businesses and organizations, including The Last Prisoner Project, a coalition dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry, The Stone Age will feature thoughtful call-to-action integrations to promote visibility on social justice reform and community engagement. This interactive experience in the Flatiron District will engage visitors in a stimulating environment inspired by the cannabis plant.
The Stone Age Experience, a woman and minority-owned business, was conceived by Sasha Perelman and Elizabeth Santana, who have produced hundreds of events for premier global brands in cannabis, beauty, wellness, technology and consumer goods.
“There’s a beautiful cultural shift happening surrounding cannabis wellness, and the need to empower and educate consumers is more important than ever. Bringing this truly unprecedented experience to New York City is not only a dream, it’s an honor,” said Sasha Perelman, Co-Founder of The Stone Age Experience. “To build on the momentum happening we are creating inspiring designs for visitors to physically walk through and learn about the wellness benefits and connections to the cannabis plant, to better understand its healing powers.”
“This year, New York legalized adult-use cannabis and we couldn’t think of a market that is more eager for cannabis-inspired happenings than New York City,” said Elizabeth Santana, Co-Founder of The Stone Age Experience. “Introducing a captivating and one-of-a-kind event like The Stone Age to the city this fall feels like the perfect moment to make a strong and lasting impact.”
Perelman, a producer and thought leader, had her premiere cannabis event, Immersion, dubbed “the best pot party in California” by Rolling Stone. Santana, a creative and operations guru, was heavily involved in the conceptualization and execution of Rosé Mansion, a popular interactive wine tasting pop-up located in New York City.

About Last Prisoner Project
The Last Prisoner Project (LPP) is a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. LPP is dedicated to releasing cannabis prisoners and helping them rebuild their lives. As the United States moves away from the criminalization of cannabis, giving rise to a major new industry, there remains the fundamental injustice inflicted upon those who have suffered criminal convictions and the consequences of those convictions. Through intervention, advocacy and awareness campaigns, the forces behind the Last Prisoner Project will work to redress the past and continuing harms of these unjust laws and policies and are dedicated to making sure that every last victimless cannabis prisoner walks free.

Originally set to open on September 15th, plans changed due to new COVID restrictions. As a limited-run event, the organizers want to ensure that everyone interested in The Stone Age has the opportunity to explore this cannabis experience. After careful consideration, they have decided to push the official opening to October 1 to provide people with additional time to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
