In honour of our Cannabis Collections™ launch in the Prairies, we asked some of our CCC Albertan natives to shoot over a few fun suggestions for what to see, eat and do in our nation's new weed capital.
As we know, Alberta's been one of the few lucky provinces in Canada to have had cannabis retail from day one of legalization. We've been eagerly awaiting the day our product would hit shelves in Alberta and that day is fast approaching! We're still a growing company so a team biz trip out to the province will have to wait, but in anticipation of a visit, our CCC members helped point us to some spots we should hit up.
Something To Do...
If you want to be touristy.
Go on a High Tour! Led by a "Cannabis Friendly" tour guide of your choice, Canada High Tours offers different packaged experiences for you to choose from. Our team would definitely do the Graffiti Tour experience if we were there! #DoItForTheGram
If you just want to chill.
Build a cute af succulent terrarium at one of Plant's numerous workshops hosted throughout the month. All supplies are provided so just bring yourself and a creative mind! We can't imagine a more zen afternoon.
Something To Eat...
If you want to take a break from meat.
Alberta's known for it's signature beef and cattle, but in the spirit of getting your summer bod ready (and of course, healthy living), we would love to try a curated vegan/vegetarian cuisine by chefs around the city. Planted celebrates their dining series with a closing celebration meal hosted at the Calgary Zoo on April 25th!
Something To See...
If you're sick of the mainstream.
Calgary is hosting their 16th annual Underground Film Festival from April 22-28, with a multitude of ticket options to choose from. Rally your film buff friends and check out the full schedule to catch a one-off feature or pick your top 5 to spend a full day entrenched in Calgary's cinema scene.
If you're into comics and cosplay.
The 7th annual POW! Parade of Wonders is happening in downtown Calgary on April 26th. Release your inner geek and join in on this free festivity by donning your best cosplay gear! We all know someone with a closet fandom love and would definitely be hitting up this event up if we were in Calgary.
