What is it?
The Cannabis 101 tour is designed for people curious about cannabis the plant and its effect on culture over the last 5000 years or so. It is NOT a big smoke-up (sorry). We do a deep dive into the evolution and history of cannabis, take a look at the reasons for prohibition, and offer a sensory experience designed to help guests start to identify different terpenes found in cannabis and other natural sources. We explore the relationship between cannabinoids like THC and CBD and our own internal, newly identified, endocannabinoid system. It's absolutely insane what is coming out of research studies now.
Like all our tours, the focus is on flavour, fun and education, while sharing the history and culture of New Brunswick in an engaging, safe and responsible way.
Why focus on science?
Each person is different, and will come to this experience at their own knowledge level. When I explored the options for delivering a fun cannabis experience, science and history is where I knew we could make the greatest impact. By offering up some good old fashioned learning, we hope to meet everyone where they're at in their journey of understanding cannabis-culture.
Over the past couple years, I was able to travel to see what was happening in the legalization and experiential development of cannabis across Canada and US. The best experience I had was with a woman named Murphy in Denver. Her terpenes and extractions course blew my mind and I decided that was type of experience I wanted to offer to our guests. Something that would interest and engage people new to cannabis, and also those who are longtime consumers.
Is cannabis supplied or consumed?
The current legislation in NB is very clear. Any cannabis purchased in New Brunswick must come from a provincial Cannabis NB store. You can find a list of stores here https://www.cannabis-nb.com/stores/
If you choose, there is an opportunity to consume cannabis on this tour, but you must bring your own. Our final stop is a private venue where you receive a beautiful charcuterie board and a terpene tea.
At Uncorked Tours we're all about sharing the fabulous food, wine, beer & spirits being produced in the Province of New Brunswick.
It is our pleasure to share some of the awesome experiences you can have while living or visiting the province.
