CannaCamp Marijuana Ranch In Colorado: How To Reserve A Spot At America's First All-Inclusive Pot Resort

Scenic views, campfires and – could someone pass the blunt? Summer camp just got a whole lot more sophisticated with the opening of a new ranch-style, all-inclusive resort in Colorado that takes marijuana-friendly vacationing to new heights. Called CannaCamp, it is America’s first mountain getaway for adults that encourages guests to consume pot (legally, that is).

CannaCamp is expected to offer all the quintessential outdoor activities – hiking, fishing, horseshoes and marshmallow roasting – in addition to its less-traditional pursuits like cannabis cooking classes, high yoga and cannabis-infused massages. “We’re bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp, in a beautiful setting where visitors can enjoy marijuana in a safe, comfortable, social environment,” CannaCamp spokesman Joel Schneider told the Associated Press.

The ranch is set on 170 acres of pristine Colorado landscape in the San Juan Mountains. It is located in Durango, Colorado, about 300 miles southwest of Denver. Rates range from $395 to $449 per night, per person. Guests can expect rustic cabins, three on-site meals a day, and tons of beautiful greenery – trees and otherwise.

You Can Do Weed Yoga And Eat Meals Paired With Pot At This Stoner Resort

elitedaily_cannacamp

Outdoorsy stoners may have just found their Mecca.

Let’s be honest, pot enthusiasts aren’t exactly the best at planning camping trips.

Getting to work on time and not forgetting to feed their pets is a huge task for them — let alone remembering everything needed for roughing it in the woods.

That’s where CannaCamp comes in.

CannaCamp, a 170-acre campground, prides itself on offering camp attendees the unique combination of recreational marijuana use in a traditional Colorado ranch setting. It’s being dubbed “America’s first cannabis resort.”

Translation: CannaCamp is like regular camp, but you don’t have to hide your pot when the counselors do room checks.

Inside CannaCamp, America's First Marijuana Resort

It was only a matter of time: Once marijuana became legal in states like Colorado and Washington, the tourists were bound to flock there. And now you don't have to fly to Amsterdam to experience a weed-fueled vacation.

CannaCamp, a 170-acre ranch in Durango, Colorado, is about to become America's first cannabis resort. They're accepting reservations now for their first guests, who will arrive from July 1 to October 31. Legally, they can't give you the weed as soon as you get there, but they'll hook you up with a "concierge" who works with local dispensaries to get you special rates, and even private tours.

You can go hiking or mountain biking through the wilderness, or stay behind to take classes on cooking with marijuana, weed-fueled yoga sessions, or a very green version of your typical "wine and canvas" art sessions. You can even splurge on a massage using cannabis-infused lotions on your skin.

Marijuana camp: The ultimate adult summer getaway

As a kid, summer camp consisted of canoeing around a lake, perhaps practicing archery in a field, and of course the familiar scent of bonfire mixed with the unmistakable odor of bug spray. Summer camp as an adult is basically the same, except it also smells like marijuana, if you're headed to this particular camp in Colorado.

We've seen plenty of companies embrace the recreational marijuana laws in the western state since Amendment 64 went into effect in January of 2014. Just last month, Denver welcomed its first openly weed-friendly hotel, edibles are flying off the shelves and farm-to-table marijuana stores are well underway.

Now we have weed summer camp, and it's called CannaCamp.

Introducing CannaCamp, America's First Cannabis Resort

condenast_cannacamp

When Colorado and Washington voters approved the legalization of marijuana in 2014, travel industry insiders expected that "pot tourism" would soon become a revenue stream in the two states. While it might be too soon to call it a trend, some existing hotels began branding themselves as weed-friendly; Denver's Adagio Hotel went so far as to offer a "bud and breakfast" experience.

But CannaCamp, a resort in Durango, Colorado, is upping the ante. The property bills itself as the first-ever cannabis resort, meaning you can legally and openly smoke anywhere on the 170-acre grounds. Although the resort offers more traditional nature lodge activities like fishing, paddleboarding, mountain biking, and kayaking, CannaCamp puts a whiff of smoke into everything: There are "a variety of courses, workshops, and interactive learning series focused on cannabis-related sciences, cultivation, and pairings," which are taught by "a respected group of pharmacologic cannabis pioneers, wellness coaches, yogis, culinary wizards, and dispensary owners." Although the hotel doesn't sell weed to guests, they can consult an on-site "cannabis concierge" who will help them make the right selection when they do purchase.

Living the High Life at the U.S.’s First Cannabis Resort

time_cannacamp

If vacation is about serious chillaxing and getting away from it all, CannaCamp may be just the ticket for some travelers. The ranch, now accepting reservations, claims to be America’s first “cannabis resort,” where vacationers can toke up without fear—and in plenty of company.

The 170-acre resort in Durango, Colo., comes from the same group that brought the state two “Bud+Breakfasts.” But Cannacamp is altogether more ambitious in scope, with activities ranging from art classes (“Canvas and Cannabis”) to yoga (“Cannabis Yoga”). Meals are specially prepared to go with weed, and there is a concierge on hand to make pairing recommendations.

'Wake And Bake' Gets A Whole New Meaning At Bud+Breakfast, Colorado's Pot-Friendly Hotel Group

With so-called "pot tourists" flocking to Colorado to take advantage of the state's recent legalization of recreational marijuana, it was only a matter of time until hotels started stepping up to the plate. Welcome to Bud + Breakfast, Colorado's first hotel group dedicated specifically to weed tourism.

Bud + Breakfast consists of two properties: The Adagio, a Victorian home with six suites, and Silverthorne, a mountain lodge with four suites. Bud + Breakfast describes itself as "the pioneering brand in the canna-lifestyle hospitality sector." As the Vail Daily says, "There’s a new kind of après in town."

Living the high life! The world's first cannabis hotel chain opens in Colorado.

The world's first cannabis-themed hotels have opened in Colorado. 

Bud & Breakfast guesthouses are geared around what's known as 420 cannabis culture - a term used by marijuana users to identify themselves to each other, denoting a lifestyle choice of smoking joints at 4.20pm and 4.20am.

Possession and consumption of the drug is legal in Colorado for over 21s, and while publicly smoking it, or smoking it inside public buildings is illegal, some hotels have a more relaxed attitude to these laws than others.

Pot-friendly B&B deepens its roots

A block down Colfax from High Street sits a B&B where bed and breakfast goes hand-in-hand with bongs and buds. And it’s about to become a more permanent fixture in the pot tourism scene.

Hospitality management newcomers the MaryJane Group plan to close on a deal to purchase the Adagio Bud & Breakfast for $1.5 million on May 15. The company – which has leased the Adagio since April 2014 to test out the viability of its “canna-lodging” hospitality concept – is purchasing the property to run it permanently.

New York native Joel Schneider, CEO of the MaryJane Group, is the mastermind behind the Bud & Breakfast model.

“I was living in a hotel downtown, and I would go into the bathroom and close the door and turn on the fan to smoke,” said Schneider, a former securities attorney. “I realized it was no fun. I was missing out on the social aspect. Cannabis is meant to be passed.”

Weed-friendly accommodations

While you can legally buy weed in Colorado, it’s not OK to smoke it in public. And hotels aren’t exactly enamored of guests lighting up on the balcony (most prohibit marijuana consumption on hotel premises and fines are hefty). So where do you go to enjoy your wares? Enter TravelTHC, a sort of Airbnb for stoners, which links owners of marijuana-friendly properties with tourists looking for a short-term rental. And just like Airbnb, TravelTHC vets both hosts and visitors.

If you’re not comfortable with staying in a stranger’s home, there are two “Bud+Breakfast” B&Bs that opened last year: the Adagio, located in a historic Victorian in downtown Denver, and in the mountains outside Vail, the Silverthorne, with four Grateful Dead-themed suites named after the band members. Both properties host a 4:20 Happy Hour for guests — those in the know will get the quirky timing — with hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and a selection of three different strains of cannabis.

Legal marijuana: Colorado's 'Green Rush'

At the beginning of the year, Colorado became the first state to legalise cannabis, after voters approved the change in 2012.

The result is not only the birth of new marijuana tour companies, but also a startling burgeoning of the cannabis industry as a whole.

Business graduates and young entrepreneurs such as Brett Schneider of The MaryJane Group have flooded into the state looking to get in on the action.

"I think the sky is the limit for the industry," he says.

"One of the things I've learned is that the real way to go about it is to be safe and responsible. If you hold those as your two brand attributes that you really stand true to, you can change the perception of cannabis."

While the theme may be hippie, the guests won’t be a bunch of stoners looking for a crash pad. Prices on rooms range from $149-199, but the Kush Garcia Suite is the coup de grace.

There’s a new kind of après in town.

At Bud and Breakfast Silverthorne, the state’s first alpine marijuana lodge, the party begins at — when else? — 4:20 p.m. It’s a cannabis-friendly twist on the ski town happy hour, complete with strains, edibles and THC products like shatter from two local dispensaries, Organix in Breckenridge and High Country Healing down the street in Silverthorne. Guests can kick off their ski boots and sit back with a bowl to warm their bones by the stone-hearth fireplace.

A bed-and-breakfast in Denver offers guests samples of cannabis strains alongside regular breakfast dishes. Guests at The Adagio get marijuana samples at daily happy hours, too, where strains of pot are paired with crudites and bacon-wrapped chicken bites, complete with tasting note presentations from growers.

"It's a way to bring our guests together and move away from campy, stereotypical pot foods," says Joel Schneider, CEO of the MaryJane Group, which operates two marijuana-friendly hotels.
