Denver hotel first in nation to receive license for legal weed consumption

hotel

Denver has long been a desirable travel destination. With the legalization of adult-use cannabis, tourism has been on fire and hotels have been trying to keep up. Indeed, a recent study showed an increase of 120,000 hotel rooms rented per month once tourists were able to purchase cannabis legally, yet public consumption of cannabis was banned in Denver.

Enter the Patterson Inn, the first licensed cannabis consumption lounge in a hotel, which just obtained a provisional license from the city of Denver, clearing a major cannabis licensing hurdle to operate a cannabis consumption lounge as an amenity to the adjacent hotel.

How the pandemic created a new generation of stoners

Americans who rarely, if ever, smoked marijuana before the pandemic now say they’re turning to weed to help them cope

Three years ago, Ricardo Capuano, 32, didn’t know how much a gram of marijuana cost. Now, after years of lockdown and an extended period of overwhelming anxiety, he has become something of a weed connoisseur.

Capuano was never a stoner; sure, he dabbled in high school, but beer and mezcal were always his “weapon of choice”. It wasn’t until the summer of 2020, in the pits of Covid despair, that he found himself reformed as a proud, regular toker. In fact, Capuano found himself actually proselytizing about the splendor of cannabis to his friends during their weekly online poker games. “I was starting to become an advocate,” he laughs.

Problems blamed on cannabis that actually have nothing to do with cannabis

weed

Cannabis gets blamed for a ton of stuff it does not cause!

Every other week I notice these “cannabis studies” that find “using it to treat pain could make you an addict” or that “cannabis users’ age quicker” and a number of other alarmist titles. Of course, the vast majority of these studies could be designed to make milk have similar findings – yet rarely do we see actual studies on the “cannabis problems” that are NOT caused by cannabis but rather the laws surrounding cannabis.

NCAA relaxes marijuana rules for college athletes

NCAA basketball

More and more professional athletes are getting high on marijuana to help them play better and recover.

Channel 2′s sports director Zach Klein first reported on the trend in February. Now changing attitudes are trickling down to the college level, with the NCAA relaxing its rules on pot.

Professional athletes are opening up about their marijuana use to help with everything from pain relief to anxiety.

“I would probably say around 80% of guys in our league use cannabis,” said Tavarres King, who played wide receiver in the NFL for seven years.

“You mentioned 80% of your teammates or guys that you know in the league were using marijuana. Were you one of them?” asked Klein.

“100%,” King answered.

Some cannabis businesses in Denver, Colorado have received approval to operate with a cannabis hospitality license—meaning soon there will be dedicated spaces for people to legally consume cannabis.

Applications were accepted starting in November 2021, and the first licenses were granted earlier this month. One such business, Tetra Lounge which is located in downtown Denver, is both a social equity applicant and a soon-to-be owner of a hospitality license (once the proper inspections have been completed), as of March 21.

Tetra Lounge owner Dewayne Benjamin hopes that things will be finalized soon, since there is less than one month to go before the arrival of 4/20.

Is vacuum-sealing your weed worth it or is it more of an urban legend?

marijuana

Should you be vacuum-sealing your cannabis flower?

Correctly storing your cannabis is critical for ensuring its freshness and quality.

Proper storage is also crucial for helping your weed last much longer, whether you are looking to store it for a few days or for the long-term. How you store your weed has a tremendous impact in its potency and flavor. Because of the importance of storing your weed, there are many specialized boxes and tools that have been designed specifically for this purpose, though many people resort to the good old-fashioned and reliable method of storing their weed in an air-tight jar.

How to grow shrooms for you and your buddies for under $200

cannabis mushroom

The fool-proof guide to shrooms and getting started in the world of cultivation, from a fellow explorer and mushroom researcher.

I love eating shrooms.

Psilocybin mushrooms made me quit cigarettes. They made me a better communicator. They made me a better partner and a better father. All mushrooms, not just the psychedelic ones, have benefited my life and health in countless ways and I think more people should eat them.
