It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for: The Cannabis Crawl.
That’s right; the crawl is officially upon us. We’ve had to schedule, and reschedule, and reschedule again, but we’ve finally made it. Freaking COVID, man.
But while the 2020 Cannabis Crawl is a go, things are going to look a bit different this year. We’ve changed things up so that we can get you all those sweet deals safely. Here’s how:
While the Cannabis Crawl has been a one-day event in years past, we’re extending it this year to three weeks. That means three weeks of steals, deals, and super cheap cannabis at all your favorite dispensaries. There are edibles to snag, eighths to stock up on, and plenty of other weed products to secure at a discount.
The event will now officially start on October 8 — when this issue hits the stands — and end on October 31. Your map, which you can find tucked in a print issue of DGO or in a swag bag that can be picked up at The Green House in Durango, will be your guide. It includes information on the deals, giveaways, Q&A sessions, and other cannabis-related events happening throughout the month.
Oh, and if you’re one of the first 200 to pick up your bag? You’ll get a bag with the official Cannabis Crawl T-shirt and lighter in it. WE didn’t even get those. (Drop one off for us at the office, would ya?)
The crawl, while longer this year, will work just like it has in recent years. You’ll visit the dispensaries and businesses on the map to get your map stamped (or stickered, to be specific). You’ll snag some killer deals while you’re there. And then you’ll move on to the next place, where you’ll do the same.
Before you get started, though, you should know that we’ve upped the ante and added businesses in Pagosa Springs, Mancos, and Cortez this year, too. These aren’t required spots to visit, but if you do make a stop at these dispensaries, be sure to get your map stickered. Want to know why? Cause you’ll get an extra entry to win the prize for each dispensary outside of Durango that you visit, that’s why. Considering that you have three freakin’ weeks to get this done, you should have plenty of extra entries on your map.
Once your map is filled out, all you have to do is drop it back in at Kinfolk Farms to be entered in the drawing for the $500 cash (err...check) prize. That’s $500 you didn’t have before and a bunch of discounted weed. 2020 may suck, but October is clearly the month that keeps on giving.
Wait, one more thing. While you’re at Kinfolk Farms, you might want to take time to check out their live grow and grab your coupon book with Munchie Deals. That will give you discounts on all sorts of delicious food (that you’ll need in order to satiate the grumbling belly post-smoke session). The coupon book contains deals at Ernie’s Bar, The Box, Backcountry Gourmet, Durango Popcorn Depot, and On A Roll Ice Cream, so you’ll have plenty to choose from.
Once all the entries are in, we’ll do a $500 prize drawing to crown one of you the lucky Cannabis Crawl 2020 winner. That drawing will take place on November 2, and we will announce the winner via Live Stream on the
DGO Facebook / Instagram at Prohibition Herb.
So, yeah, That’s our 2020 Cannabis Crawl plan. We’re stoked to be able to continue to host the event, even in the midst of a pandemic. And, of course, we’re looking forward to a time when we can go back to throwing a massive bash to close it all out. But until then, this is how we’ll make it work.
Now go out, snag some cheap weed deals, and remember to pass the dutchie to yourself, from yourself — not to your friends. We’re all for the “Sharing is Caring” movement in normal times, but right now, that’s how COVID spreads.
Be safe, have fun, and get your dang map marked off! You put in the work. Might as well reap alllllll the benefits.
