You are excited. You love cannabis and smoke weed all the time. You know the product you are buying is off the black market in outdated states with poor regulation. Or you have your medical card in another state but realize it doesn’t work here. Or you haven’t smoked in years but heard all about the Cannabis tourism happening in the Metro Denver, Colorado area. Can’t wait to get your hand on something, anything, to make your ski trip the best one possible. You are now a Cannabis Tourist!
You are on your way to being a Cannabis Tourist!
Except, there is a problem. There are a few problems. First, you can’t travel with some of the things you might want to smoke Cannabis. Also, you have nothing available to smoke once you get here. Next, it is only legal to smoke Marijuana at a private residence, and clearly, you are not a resident. Lastly, you are in a place where you don’t know the legalities of quantities of cannabis purchases? How much is enough, and what fines do you risk if you buy too much? You can always throw it away. Yet you don’t want to waste your money on a Cannabis product you will not enjoy.
A CannaTourist can find help with us!
Here at The Stone Dispensary, we are proud to partner with countless individuals in the Cannabis Tourist or CannaTourist industry. We see all the time when we have new customers who come in who have never seen a legal dispensary before. Or we see times where there are issues where people have not smoked for years. They are reintroducing themselves to a new individual.
If you are visiting Denver in hopes of getting high or looking to get high while you are here in Denver, here are our top recommendations for making the most out of your experience.
Cannabis Tourist 101: Find a Friend, Rent a Smoke Friendly Property & Don’t Break the Law
We understand the frustrating piece of the law. You can smoke Cannabis legally in Colorado but only on private property. What this does is put you, the Cannabis-tourist, into a particularly awful bind. You want to get high, but you do not want to either get a ticket or suffer from a hotel charge by smoking in your hotel room. It leaves you in quite a predicament. Where do you get high?
Well, first and foremost, try and rent smoke-friendly properties. With the rise of programs like Airbnb, you will often see listings where the renter offers that their apartment or space is Cannabis friendly. Finding a private property you can rent and smoke at upfront is great because it allows you the chance to rest easy in satisfying your desire to get high.
The other piece, make friends! We are often friendly people in Colorado, and many of us love making new friends. Look on social media apps like MassRoots or High There if you run out of options. Both apps provide you, the marijuana Tourist, access to a community of Cannabis enthusiasts who are willing to offer places for smoking. Because of the social media tie, both offer you a variety of options for connecting and might be an excellent chance for you to find someone who will smoke with you.
Lastly, don’t break the law. If you are in a bind, remember smoking in a highly public place is illegal and can end you with a ticket. So is smoking in a hotel or especially a car. Be smart about your smoking.
CannaTourist 102: Buy PreRolls or Edibles, Easy to Consume
Be smart about your buying options if you do not want to spend too much money on flower only to have them go to waste, or you do not have to smoke your new purchase. At The Stone Dispensary, we are proud to offer an always extended repertoire of ways to get high. Our staff is experts at making extremely generous marijuana pre-rolled joints from some of our best Marijuana strains, meaning you can get a tremendous high without a hassle.
Another option is our edible selection. Buying Cannabis edibles is an excellent choice because they can be taken discreetly without anyone’s knowledge of you using them. They are orderless, leaving behind no smoke, come in various flavors, and it is possible to buy single servings of marijuana edibles, making them perfect for a quick trip to Colorado.
We also recommend checking out a vapor pen for your time out here. Depending on how long your visit is, we have a great variety of vapor pens using concentrates as a means of getting you high. The Cannabis Concentrates you purchase can be pretty powerful in their offers if you have enough people in your party smoking (or you just like smoking a lot). Weed Concentrates offer the perfect alternative to buying a ton of flower, figuring out how to smoke, and worrying about the process of getting high.
Cannabis Tourist 103: Your Medical License Is Not Valid Here
Medical Cannabis licenses are one of the significant issues we hear from marijuana Tourists’. People come into our shops with a medical license from another state and are frustrated when we cannot sell to them medically. We always tell them the same thing. We are a Denver Recreational Dispensary. At The Stone, we can only accept government-issued IDs/ licenses for adults 21 + as per Colorado laws. Location does matter, and sadly the federal government has not caught up with the times yet. Just be prepared for this.
Many Cannabis dispensary owners and budtenders, ours included, are more than willing to help you understand what we can offer you on the Recreational marijuana side to get the best high and treat your needs. Still, sadly we do not provide a medical side at this time. Just be prepared so you are not disappointed by this when it does happen.
Cannabis Tourists 104: Be Smart
The last piece we always recommend to our customers is educated and experienced in smart Cannabis. There are laws in place in Colorado, and you do not want to spoil your fun by getting high in the right place and getting slapped with a fine. Also, don’t smoke or imbibe and drive. Be smart, like with any other substance.
If you know where to look, you can find great places to smoke all around you with a bit of diligence. Just be respectful of the Denver, Colorado natives, be respectful of other peoples’ space, and make sure you, as a Marijuana Tourist, follow the appropriate laws.
If you are smart about your desired Cannabis tourism, you can always have a great time out here without too much of a hassle. Make sure to visit The Stone Dispensary when you are in town for High Quality Cannabis and the Best Cannabis Deals.
