CannaVenture® is an event planning service focused on low-cost, outdoor cannabis adventures. We host hikes, campouts, sporting tournaments and music festivals, as well as work with local nonprofits and organizations like NORML to coordinate social events that embrace the best aspects of the outdoors, the community, and cannabis. Through regular events that encourage active, outdoor enjoyment and welcome people of all persuasions and backgrounds, the CannaVenture helps to overcome the challenges that cannabis consumers face due to preexisting stereotypes. The CannaVenture embraces the philosophy that you have the right to hike high, camp high, and be high, and you can do so in a responsible, social environment.
The CannaVenture® has roots in Broomfield, CO. Its following of supporters and attendees, The CannaVentureCrew, are a community of active individuals who have come together over a love of exploration and cannabis. This organization is for individuals of legal age who reside in states that have legalized cannabis either for medicinal or recreational use.
We help you meet new people with similar interests through regular hikes, gatherings, campouts and more. We can give you a social life, a whole new group of friends, or just some company along one of the many natural excursions that Colorado, and the rest of the country, have to offer. We have something for everyone!
Please join us at our next event or visit our Facebook page for more information.
To promote and foster the communal and appreciative growth and development that occurs when people of like-minded interests join together for excursions into nature, away from the daily hustle and bustle that often overwhelms us. To provide members with an opportunity for personal development and achievement and an avenue for intelligent and active participation in the world around us, and to develop true friendship and understanding among persons of all backgrounds.
Simply put, the purpose of the CannaVenture® is to become a force for good in the community, both to address the stereotype of “lazy stoners” as well as encourage responsible, social cannabis consumption. By joining, you’ll explore various natural wonders of Colorado and receive hands-on experience in the good old outdoors, which translates to the enhancement of personal growth and the development of valuable personal skills. This is the total CannaVentureCrew concept.
It all began when Cannabenoid (Ben Owens, founder) moved from Chicago, IL to Broomfield, CO in the winter of 2015. From this point on, Cannabenoid wanted to meet new people in the area, people who shared his interests of photography, hiking, camping, and cannabis. He wanted to find a way to meet other active, motivated cannabis enthusiasts. From this modest beginning, Cannabenoid’s “CannaVenture™” began to move forward and on April 9, 2016, the first official CannaVenture™ was hosted at Reynolds Park in Conifer, CO. The CannaVentureCrew has quickly gained attention from the cannabis community in Denver and Boulder. As the movement continues to grow, the Crew has increased in size beyond anything Cannabenoid could have imagined.
The idea is clearly contagious and residents in other legal areas are invited to reach out about forming a local chapter in their area. After battling for cannabis equality and the destruction of stereotypes and stigmas, we owe it to ourselves to show the world that we are more than cheeto-munching stoner sloths.
The CannaVentureCrew Creed
That the natural world is one that must be explored.
That cannabis has the power to enhance our experiences.
That community among individuals fosters personal and collective growth.
And that people of all walks can come together over shared interests.
The year was 2016; the place, Broomfield, CO, U.S.A.; the event, the first CannaVenture®. Visitors have since come from Missouri, Texas, Georgia, Illinois and more. It was here that the true idea of a CVC Creed was born. Cannabenoid realized at this event that the organization did not have a Creed. He was inspired by the members desire to interact with each other and the world around them.
The actual writing of the Creed took place in April 2016 during formalization of the CVC.
Since it was written, there has been much discussion of the interpretation of the Creed. The author himself said, “Every member is free to interpret the Creed from his own unique perspective.”
All attendees must be 21 years of age or older. While we understand that some medical patients may be under 21, we must abide by the MED’s rules for compliance and as the environment cannot be strictly medical, we must treat it as a recreational space that is open only to those 21+.
While the CannaVenture® endorses cannabis consumption and an active cannabis lifestyle, we explicitly do not endorse consumption of cannabis on public land. If you choose to consume at any events that take place at such locations, you do so at your own risk and understand that you are on public land that may be subject to additional county, state and federal laws. By attending a CannaVenture®, you agree that any violation of local, state and federal laws, especially regarding consumption, is your responsibility and yours alone and you will indemnify CannaVenture® and its affiliates from any damages that result from these actions. We will have consumption-friendly areas and vehicles whenever possible.
Events that take place on private land will have explicit consumption policies that are clear and available to anyone with further questions.
The CannaVenture® does not offer any cannabis in any capacity as we are not a licensed dispensary, however our licensed dispensary partners are able to offer you discounts on your cannabis in a friendly and legal environment.
You cannot purchase cannabis, seeds, clones, or other cannabis derivatives from CannaVenture® or any of its affiliates at the events. Licensed cannabis businesses are prohibited from selling cannabis in an uncontrolled environment such as an event. Our sponsors may provide limited coupons, deals and samples as deemed compliant by their legal advisors.
