Participation in this off-site PDT event to multiple locations has a transportation/tour cost of $60.00 per person. To attend, select this option on the registration form and meet in front of the hotel entrance promptly at 8:30 am to board the bus.

About the Tour: We will first visit a top security company in Colorado, Blue Line, that handles many aspects of protecting the cannabis industry in that state. After that visit and presentation we will get back on the bus and visit cannabis growing facilities and dispensaries to learn how they operate. The cannabis excursion is an extraordinary opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the Colorado Cannabis Industry. During the tour, you will be chauffeured throughout Denver in luxury transportation. Your private driver will be equipped with, bottled water, and snacks. As if being transported through time and space, you will arrive at a 20,000 sq. ft. marijuana greenhouse where you can explore and learn about the cultivation of cannabis from clone to harvest and have all of your questions answered by master growers. This is a rare opportunity to learn about different grow rooms at different stages of cultivation and take pictures with big, beautiful, budding plants! Then, get a chance to experience what this grow house produces when you get VIP access to the Euflora Dispensary.

Optional Off-Site Brazilian SteakHouse Dinner – Friday, April 21st
