The new Cannabition Cannabis Museumin Las Vegas is the first of its kind. The ribbon cutting ceremony in September 2018 brought together national news outlets, the mayor, a senator, city councilmen and a number of local politicians and onlookers. Not only has Cannabition attracted a number of local and national cannabis brands, it has also sparked an international interest in cannabis tourism, becoming a beacon of intrigue in the cannabis community.
Las Vegas is already billed as a top tourist destination, but with the addition of Cannabition,the ante has been upped! This Instagrammable experience brings together creativity, education and imagination in a way we haven’t seen since the Museum of Ice Cream. Those looking to document the awe of the Cannabitionexperience on social media will be able to flaunt some pretty badass showcases like the world’s largest bong by Jerome Baker Designs, Hunter S. Thompson’soriginal Chevrolet Caprice, which was featured in“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” as well as interactive exhibits by Leafly, W Vapes and RAW Rolling Papers.
On the educational side, the immersive, 9,000-square-foot space takes you through everything you need to know about the cannabis plant from seed to high. Exhibit rooms by Green & Gold Supply Co. and The Clear provide insight into the plant’s growth cycle, as well as a fragrant way to understand terpenes, the chemical compounds that give cannabis its aroma and taste. You can interact with almost the entirety of this museum, making it ideal for photo and video ops.
As the cannabis industry develops, Cannabitionhas big plans in store, in hopes that it may even land a consumption permit which would allow for the on-site use of THC cannabis products. The space currently has its own CBD shop so that guests can get medicated while they immerse themselves in this Fremont Street gem. Curator and CEO JJ Walker says that “connecting brands with consumers through experience” is his ultimate goal: “I want this to be a platform for the cannabis community to connect with one another through events, fundraisers, classes, tours — even yoga!”
