Colorado’s medical cannabis program became a reality in the year 2000 when voters approved Amendment 20.  This amendment altered the state constitution to allow the use of marijuana to approved patients with written medical consent within the state. That program truly gained traction in 2009, when the state-mandated licensed dispensaries and patients were able to access their medicine with a prescription from their doctor.  As of today, 37 states have legalized medical cannabis programs and hemp-derived CBD is now available to purchase online and in all 50 states. With the majority of the population now having access to cannabis and its sister, hemp, medical cannabis is becoming less taboo and is being incorporated into many people’s daily lives for its therapeutic benefits.

Cannabis and its active compounds, cannabinoids, interact with a series of receptors in the body (the endocannabinoid system) and have been shown (through anecdotal evidence – a lot of it!) to help alleviate certain ailments.  At City Sessions, the goal of our medical cannabis tour is to provide our guests a road map to navigate the over-the-counter product line, so they feel confident selecting products and strains based on the desired effect they are looking to achieve. What works for one person may not work for another and understanding cannabis for your body chemistry will provide a holistic option to aid in what ails you. We see the future of cannabis as a medicine beginning to unfold at a rapid rate and once national legalization happens and funding opens up for scientifically based research the true medical potential of the cannabis plant will be unlocked.

This three-and-a-half-hour tour starts with a consultation at the City Sessions’ lounge where your guide will explain how cannabis interacts with different body chemistry, the varying products available for purchase at the dispensary, dosing, and will answer any questions or concerns. From there, you’ll walk through a commercial grow facility to see and learn the process of cultivating cannabis from clone to cure (or its full life cycle). Next, it’s time to do some shopping! We’ll stop at a dispensary to review product lines and to purchase (with a discount). From there, customize the rest of your tour around Denver and the surrounding area!
