Cannabis Strain Recommendations
We now have specific recommendations from local Boulder recreational and medical dispensaries. Sometimes sponsors of private events provide the medicine.
If you wish to bring your own, here are some general recommendation:
Your favorite strain. You can’t go wrong with choosing your favorite strain for these experiences. It is your favorite for a reason and we trust that.
Combine 1/2 favorite sativa with 1/2 favorite indica.
Combine 1/3 favorite sativa, indica and hybrid.
Share with friends at the event. Bring your favorite and trade for another’s favorite. Community blends are great.
Cannabis Fasts – Recommended but not Required
We recommend taking what we call a “Cannabis Fast” before attending a Conscious Cannabis Event. Just a day or two, especially the day of, can make a difference. Some choose to take a fast for a week or more. It is your choice. There are also appropriate reasons to use cannabis on a daily basis, for example pain management. If cannabis is being used to treat a medical condition, it is not necessary to take a cannabis fast before attending a session or event.
Non-Smoking Cannabis Alternatives
Some participants prefer to bring a non-smoking or non-vaping alternative to their experience, such as an edible, tincture or oil, or have asked about using smokable concentrates. Due to factors related to concentrates and edibles, pre-approval is required. You must have already experienced and be comfortable with the edible and dosage you wish to consume before doing so at an event.
Cannabis and the Law
Conscious Cannabis Events are private, invitation only events. According to the Colorado NORML publication, The Responsible Consumer’s Guide to Marijuana in Colorado, “Private vs. Public: The Colorado constitution, protects private marijuana use, so you can consume openly at a residence or outdoors on a porch or balcony as long as the property owner allows it. Marijuana cannot be consumed openly and publicly, such as on streets and sidewalks, or in public parks. Localities may have their own regulations on where you can consume, so you should check local laws first.”
