Cannabis yoga, cooking with cannabis and cannabis-infused massage therapy are a few of the marijuana-related activities offered to visitors at CannaCamp in Durango, Colorado.
The company that owns the 170-acre property — the MaryJane Group — describes it as “America’s first cannabis resort.”
While the country’s first “weedery” — Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater in Denver — will not open until at least the fall (see “Forget the Winery: Country’s First ‘Weedery’ to Open Soon“), CannaCamp opens July 1, USA Today reports. It is already taking reservations.
CannaCamp visitors stay in cabins that sleep either up to four people or up to seven people and cost $395 or $449 per night, respectively, according to the resort’s website. Reservations are all-inclusive, so the price includes meals, activities and other amenities.
The resort is a joint venture of the MaryJane Group and the Wilderness Trails Ranch, a dude ranch near San Juan National Forest.
The MaryJane Group announced CannaCamp on April 20 (4/20), also known to some as National Marijuana Day. Joel C. Schneider, MaryJane Group president and chief executive, said in a statement:
“We are excited about the opportunity to offer a cannabis-based camp experience. Our concept provides our guests with an all-inclusive package for the enjoyment of the recreational marijuana lifestyle combined with a traditional ranch/camp environment.”
The MaryJane Group also owns two existing “bud and breakfast” locations in Denver and Silverthorne, Colorado, which offer lodging and events.
Colorado voters legalized marijuana for adult recreational use in November 2012. To learn more about how the legalization has affected the local economy, check out “Is Pot Boosting Housing, Jobs in Denver?”
