CANNABIS CULTURE – Cannabis connoisseurs in Calgary have a new option for an entertaining, educational and socially-distant evening out, where consumption will be allowed.
Cannanaskis, Alberta’s first cannabis tourism operator, is expanding to offer History of Cannabis Tours at Calgary’s historic Heritage Park.
This three-hour, outdoor, adult-only tour is led by Dave Dormer, a journalist and researcher with more than 20 years experience. Tours will run from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays starting March 3 and are available for groups of four to eight people (single cohorts only while COVID-19 health measures are in place).
The pick-up and drop-off point for the tour is the public square in Calgary’s Bridgeland neighbourhood, in the 900 block of General Avenue N.E.
The adventure begins with a visit to a nearby dispensary, FivePoint Cannabis, then guests are transported in our 12-passenger CannaVan to the Weedon schoolyard at Heritage Park where smoking and vaping will be allowed as we explore the 12,000-year History of Cannabis, from its first uses as a textile by neolithic people to the recreational and underground markets seen today.
Seating is provided and there will be a fire pit to keep us warm during the winter months.
