Denver Cannabis Cup 2015
The Adventures Of Superstoner hits Denver Cannabis Cup again! Last year we launched our first issue of Superstoner at Denver Cannabis Cup, we've had a good year since our launch, went to a few Comic Cons, did some art shows, sold some comic books online and other big events like our Artist Chipp having his first baby boy with his lovely gal Izzy. Also Chipp just opened a new Tattoo Shop in Tempe, Az. called Colossus Tattoo! check them out on Instagram! Colossus Tattoo Tempe Az.
This year my girl Mo and I attended the Cup together and met up with some friends to get high and check out all the awesome festivities the Cannabis Cup had to offer.
Day 1, Saturday. The day started a 4am, woke up, got ready, had that 4:20am dab hit, then headed to the airport to catch our 6am flight to Denver. We arrived in Denver and checked out the infamous art work at the Denver Airport while we waited for our car to arrive. We used a service called Relay Rides, which I highly recommend, we saved a bunch of money using this service instead of renting a car, look into it! After we received our Relay Car we headed to the closest dispensary near our hotel. We found ourselves at a place called The Green Solution, which had a line leading out to the parking lot. We got in line and ended up waiting about an hour before we received our recreational marijuana, they even hooked us up with some free edibles and a gram of their Cannabis Cup entry Cindy White. After that we headed toward the Cup. We had media passes and were able to enter the Cup a hour before the general public. I ran into Bobby Black from High Times and was able to give him a comic, I also ran into 2014 Miss High Times Jessie and gave her a comic as well, I hope they like it! The rest of the day was spent roaming the Cup, grabbing cool free gear, checking out beautiful buds and glass, smoking joints and blunts, and taking dabs! By the end of the first day, Mo and I were exhausted and hungry! We grabbed some drive thru and headed back to the hotel, ate, smoked again, then passed out.
Day 2, Sunday. The next morning we woke up early, wake and baked, hit up the hotel's continental breakfast, got ready, then headed to the Cup for another fun filled day! We arrived at the Cup around 10am, there was a big storm that hit over night and the outdoor section of the Cup looked like a riot had happen. There was shelves and cases knocked over, banners and tents ripped to shreds, the place was a wreck. They delayed to opening of the Cup that day to 1pm instead of Noon, to give the vendors time to clean and reset their booths, the Fire Marshals also needed to do an inspection as well. But, it wasn't bad for us, we got to go around again checking out the booths without huge crowds of people around, talk to a few of the vendors, and even took a few special dab hits. After the crowd was let in I met with a few buddies who were also attending the cup. The second day was mostly spent walking around, giving away stickers, shirts and comics, talked to a few vendors about my comic, and of course joints, blunts and dabs! I ran into High Times Editor Rick Cusick and took a picture with him, we talked for a bit, and I gave him a comic. I met two nice girls who wanted to take part in the Instagram Giveaway I was doing. Take a picture with Andy the Writer, post on Instagram, tag @officialsuperstoner and win Superstoner Prizes! I smoked a joint with a cool dude I met from Minnesota, he called it a Tarantula, a joint dipped in oil then rolled in kief. Dank!!! I also ran into Peter Dante from Grandma's Boy, was able to get a picture with him and gave him a comic too. After the Cup Mo, our friend Cory and myself wanted to take in some Denver, We went to have a beer and a burger at a nice place called Cherry Cricket, delicious burgers! After the meal we wanted to go check out a local smoking lounge, but unfortunately Mo lost her phone and wallet, luckily it was found by some nice people and we were able to get everything back. We went back to our buddy's hotel to get high and watch Game Of Thrones. Cory was staying at a hotel called the Double Tree, which was an awesome place, they had two smoking tents in the parking lot for their guests. We went in there to do a dab and smoke a blunt before Game Of Thrones started... It was a party in there! 5 dab hits and 8 blunts later we stumbled out and made it back to the room in time for the show. We will be staying at The Double Tree next year for sure!
Day 3, Monday, 4/20 2015. Woke up early, had a toke, a coffee and a quick breakfast, then headed to The Green Solution dispensary to pick up some more smoke before the lines got huge. When we got there we found out that their Cannabis Cup entry Cindy White had won the People's Choice Award! So we grabbed a few grams of that and got hooked up with more free edibles, then it was off to the Cup for the last and best day, 4/20 2015! Day 3 was mainly about capturing video for me, I wanted to get as much as I could. The day was beautiful! perfect weather and blue skies! We got in early again, made the rounds, got some good video of the booths, took some dabs and smoked some blunts. We spent a lot of the day hanging out at the VIP tent on 4/20, they had free food and drinks, and tons of cool Raw giveaways. We sat down at a table and were immediately welcomed by the other guests sitting at the table. I started to roll a blunt and was bombarded by blunts, joints and pipes being passed all around the table. I got stupid high and had great conversation with cool people from all over the country and from all walks of life. I was able to meet the new Miss High Times Dani Greenfox, got a picture with her and gave her a comic. The weather was perfect, the Cup was in full effect and I was feeling great. We decided to go back out to the general public area and take part in all the awesomeness that is The Denver Cannabis Cup on 4/20 2015! When 4:20 hit on 4/20 the crowd was engulfed in clouds. I was giving out stickers and throwing out shirts, everyone was passing blunts and joints around, celebrating marijuana and all the good it does and can do for us! After we left the Cup we went back to the room to chill and plan another attempt at taking in The Denver life. We went to a sweet little bar/pizza joint called The Bar Car Denver Deep Dish, good food, good beer, great service! After dinner we wanted to check out some smoking lounges. We went to a place called Potus, but found out it was a members only club that had a secret knock to get in. We went to another place called iBake, which was a cool place, but was way packed so we didn't end up hanging there. We decided to head back to the Double Tree tents to smoke up the rest of our weed and wax, because we wouldn't be able to take it on the plane with us. I really enjoyed hanging at the Double Tree tents, everyone there was from out of town and super friendly, it was cool to talk to people and hear about their Cannabis Cup experience.
The next morning we smoked two joints before we got on the plane to head home.
My overall experience of The 2015 Denver Cannabis Cup was great! Last year we had a booth and it was hard to get away and enjoy the Cup. This year I had a great time walking around, meeting people, and seeing all the awesome booths. This years Cup was way bigger than last year, another thing I noticed was there was way more flower booths this year compared to last year, last year was all about dabs. I thought it was nice to see more beautiful flowers on display this year, don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good dab, but I still love the taste and smell of a good bud.
I hope you enjoyed the tale of my Denver 2015 Cannabis Cup experience and please check out our newly updated website TheAdventuresOfSuperstoner.com!!! Thank you for your support!
