Final Session of the Year
As the year is coming to an end, this will be the last Newsletter of 2016 and that has had us reflecting on the last year. City Sessions started out as a one woman show where Goldie was running tours and building up the business on her own. Once she reached a certain level in the business, it was time to expand. This year we added Sarah to help run tours and to assist with the day to day operations of the business, and then added Brent, a local graphic designer, to do our video production and to manage our social media. This has allowed for Goldie to vet new companies and brands to make the City Sessions’ experience better than ever! We are picking up the pace and are ready to start working on the next level of the business. With that will include a full revamping of the City Sessions’ website as well the hiring of another like-minded person to the team. We are looking for a hard working, passionate and educated cannabis enthusiast that has experience in the industry for at least a couple years to help run tours and to help with office work.
The lodging section of our website already got a bit of an update as we are now partnered Luxury Concierge, a collective of homeowners, transportation partners, hospitality-industry professionals, and concierge services who have collaborated in an effort to provide guests in Denver and Breckenridge with a one-of-a-kind vacation experience. Although hotels are a convenient and cheaper alternative for some, almost all of them are not 420-friendly. There really is nothing better than vacationing in the luxury and comfort of a home and being allowed to consume as you please. With housing options including lofts, houses and condos around the Denver area, there are plenty of places for you to choose from in a number of Denver’s unique and fun neighborhoods.

The Cannabis Industry Awards were held in Vegas this last month. This Green-carpet event was a gathering of Cannabis Industry leaders from across the country to come together and congratulate those who have really stood out as exceptional in their fields. Many of our partners and affiliates here in Colorado got to take home the coveted Cannabist Pineapple d’Or award. These winners include:
Mary’s Medicinals: Medical Advancement // Products
Pax Era: Technology // Vaporizer
The Trichrome Institute: Education // Industry
Denver Relief Consulting: Community // Innovation
Blueline Security: 420-Friendly // Security
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE): Education // Consumption (for their Good to Know campaign)
These amazing companies and brands continue to set the example for what a professional and cutting-edge cannabis company should be. We are so proud to be working with such exceptional people and look forward to seeing where they grow in this budding industry!

This last month was also the election which was huge for the Cannabis industry in America. Four states legalized Medicinal Marijuana: Florida, North Dakota, Arkansas and Montana; and 4 states legalized Adult Use Cannabis: California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Maine. That means that the entire West Coast has officially legalized Adult Use which is a huge deal! The stigma of “reefer madness” and being a stoner are finally lifting and people are starting to accept that it is no worse than drinking a beer and that it does have healing properties. Hopefully we will see the de-scheduling of Cannabis as a dangerous drug which will in turn free up a lot of innocent people who face hard time for getting caught with a small amount of marijuana. As well as see a decrease in opiate addiction and dependence having this non-addictive alternative available to the public.
We are still working on our videos as we only want to bring you the highest of quality! As a team, we came together to get a better idea of what we really want from our Sessions and to refine the content. Check out this week’s video, Session #27: The Ladies Elevate Their Life at Livegreen Cannabis, to see our best video yet and to see why the Ladies’ love LiveGreen Cannabis so much!!
