CannaHospitality. New Experiences all 420 friendly!

Hola Amigas

The Cannabis Hospitality Industry has emerged as a result of the Cannabis Tourism Industry. With Colorado creating a legal path to become a Hospitality Business, this is going to be exciting to see what offerings we will have access to.

The Cannabis Hospitality Industry is also Colorado’s way to promote social equity which is one reason I am so excited about the passing of this legislation.

Recently, the Cannabis Industry has been criticized for a lack of diversity and inclusivity within executive leadership. Basically the public was upset because the majority of CEO’s are white males who had vast resources to open these companies. This is especially concerning as Black and Brown People have been at the forefront of legislation and have also been incarcerated and targeted due to the failed War on Drugs, which should be known as the War on Minorities and Poverty.

Colorado wanted to create an easier way to allow individuals to enter the cannabis industry, and the hospitality licensing is just one way they are trying to address social equity. While this is a good start to equity, it is just the beginning to providing reparations to those affected by the war on drugs.

Secondly, this industry is gonna be innovating greatly because of the vast services that can be offered. Colorado has had four or five cannabis lounges that were working around the system by offering private lounges. One thing I loved about the lounges is that some were created to be a club-like experience providing high end dab rigs and vaporizers; while others were created to be more friendly and like a home experience to provide a legal place to smoke. After visiting two lounges, I ended up preferring the casual everyday lounge because the patrons were all very friendly and I made some new friends that day.

Lounges are not the only business popping up, rather there are so many that it is difficult to remember all the offerings. 420 Hotels are becoming more mainstream, and the license allows hotels to create specific smoking friendly rooms if desired. Cannabis DabTenders are another aspect of hospitality because they provide a service of electric dab rigs, DabTenders who clean the glass after every use, and a variety of concentrates to try.

From Cannabis Caterers to Cannabis Weddings, there are more ways than ever to enter this industry. These businesses also allow you to transfer past experiences into a new industry. If you visit a Cannabis Friendly art or yoga class then you have helped the Cannabis Hospitality as hospitality is providing a service and experience.

The most exciting part of this industry is that we have no idea how large it will grow, nor do we know what to expect two years from now. Overall, I am excited to see more minority business owners and the vast array of cannabis-friendly businesses!

Have you gone to a cannabis lounge? What was your experience with that? What businesses do you think might become a major offering?

Cannabis Tourism? What is that?

Hola Amigas!

Recently there seems to be one topic on everyone’s mind, Cannabis Tourism. We are all itching to get out of our houses and see friends while getting high AF! Okay that last bit might just be my desire, but I’m sure I’m not alone. So while we are stuck in our rooms, we might as well plan our own Cannabis Vacation!

Cannabis Tourism is simply put the visitors who come from out of state, or country, and purchase cannabis while visiting; at least that’s how the “Man” classifies it.

As Cannabis has become more mainstream, many people have flocked to Colorado to experience buying cannabis legally and sometimes they want to learn more about it. This has caused cannabis tourism to break into different categories and services.

If you are planning on coming to Colorado, there are two main resources Colorado Cannabis Tours and My 420 Tours. Both of these offer companies offer a variety of classes and experiences that you can enjoy. If you wanted to visit a commercial grow facility, you can sign up and get a behind the scenes of how your flower is made. You could also learn how your favorite concentrates are made by planning a visit to an extraction facility.

If you would rather just get high and be social, then they also offer classes like a puff and paint class. Or you can learn how to roll joints and sushi, or just learn how to infuse your own foods in a cooking class. (Or watch my Youtube Channel)

One benefit of using these tour companies is that you don’t have to worry about getting around because they have cars or buses that will make sure you arrive high and in style.

The second benefit is that these companies usually create partnerships so that you can ensure to have these experiences. You are also guaranteed to have a good experience because you can sit back and enjoy knowing everything else is settled.

One caveat is cannabis massages, as this has become an offering activity for these tours. While I am sure their massages are nice, you can usually find a cannabis massage by a quick google search. I’m not kidding, we went to Boulder for a work trip and I decided I was gonna get a cannabis massage. I founded a masseuse who was wonderful, offered edibles prior to the massage, and then used a cannabis topical all over. After that massage, I was so relaxed and just felt like I could take on the world! I seriously can’t wait to go back to Boulder for this massage and all the yummy food, oh and the cannabis offerings are on another level, compared to my city.

One other type of Cannabis Tourism coming into fruition is Cannabis Hospitality Businesses. Although if you want that blog post and video, you will have to like and subscribe!

Yep I am teasing you guys, so be prepared for next week’s post about Cannabis Hospitality!

I love you guys, thank you so much for supporting me! I am wishing you all the love, light, joy, and positivity your way! Also next time your high, know I’m with you!

Authentically Yours,
