Summer camping, hiking and outdoor events

DENVER, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the weather warms, more cannabis enthusiasts will be heading to the great outdoors to hike, camp, picnic with friends and attend at live music festivals. Often these activities involve the consumption of cannabis, which means potential waste, fire hazards, and other environmental issues.

“Unfortunately, cannabis users are often stereotyped as aloof and careless when it comes to outdoor consumption,” says Ben Owens, Founder and Team Leader of CannaVenture®, which has been organizing and hosting cannabis-friendly outdoor events like hikes and camping trips across the country since 2016. “By following a few simple rules of courtesy that our events use, cannabis consumers can continue to prove that this stereotype is false, allowing everyone to enjoy the natural beauty of the great outdoors and help preserve it for years to come.

CannaVenture has partnered with Cannabis creative movement to create a guide that details how cannabis consumers can be responsible at outdoor events. The guide also helps promote and support CannaVenture’s non-profit partner Wilderness on wheels, an organization that provides wheelchair accessible hiking, fishing and camping facilities to make wilderness activities accessible to everyone. The Responsible Leisure Guide, which you can download for free hereincludes a variety of tips and information for enjoying cannabis responsibly outdoors.

It is important that all outdoor cannabis use is done safely, as the harm caused by irresponsible cannabis use can include:

  • Wildlife/ecosystem disturbance
  • Waste left over from product packaging, pre-rolls, etc.
  • Potentially damaging and deadly wildfires
  • Vulnerable ecosystems become susceptible to increased damage

“The cannabis community is already working to eliminate the stigma associated with cannabis use, and we’ve made great strides in this area over the years,” said John Shute, CEO and Founder of PufCreativ, co-founder of the Cannabis Creative Movement. “It is therefore very important that we do not let irresponsible behavior destroy the progress we have made in terms of the acceptance of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes. It is very easy to follow some very basic guidelines to ensure that we are not contributing to environmental harm or creating other negative perceptions about cannabis.
