What is the World's First Weedery? January 06 2015
Many people have been asking us, “What is a weedery?” Great question. Why? Because a weedery has never existed before in history. Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater will serve as the world’s very first weedery. A historical step forward in the legalization, liberalization and celebration of marijuana. Like a brewery or a winery, but for legal marijuana, the weedery will give the public the unique opportunity to tour an award-winning state of the art marijuana grow facility, listen to live music at the outdoor amphitheater, and enjoy a meal at the on-site bar and restaurant. All while enjoying sweeping views of the Colorado Rockies.
For years, the cultivation of marijuana has been shrouded literally and figuratively in a haze of smokescreens, serving as a magnificent though illegal example of horticultural art, study, and science. Colorado has led the way in slowly but surly bringing legal marijuana cultivation out of the basement and into the light, and through the weedery Green Man Cannabis has the unique opportunity to share the realities, the processes, and the people behind one of the country's most successful legal marijuana companies. Guests have the rare opportunity to tour the facility, led by highly knowledgeable and experienced staff, and gain a better understanding of the behind the scenes marijuana process, from grow to dispensary.
"The Cannabis Ranch is my chance to normalize marijuana, to bring it to the world on such a scale that it cannot be ignored,” says Christian Hageseth, founder of Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater, in his upcoming book Big Weed (published by Macmillan, April 2015).
Of the weedery’s tour, the book quotes Hagaseth as saying, “Our visitors will be embarking on a journey that mimics America’s own journey of enlightenment. As they move from the basement, they’re leaving marijuana’s past behind. When they enter the greenhouse, they’ll be looking at the future. From the closet out into the open. From the darkness into the light.”
To put it simply, the weedery is history in the making.
