My boyfriend and I love going on trips to experience new things.
I am the main organizer when it comes to these.
I pick the location, hotels, restaurants and what we do. Sometimes I get sick of it, constantly being the planner. On this most recent trip I told my boyfriend he had to come up with one activity for us. We recently went to a state where recreational and medical marijuana are legal. On the itinerary was of course touring a cannabis dispensary. My boyfriend however, planned for us to visit a commercial growing site. The grow site had a marijuana farming section where the buds were first in bloom. Then there were climate control facilities with the marijuana hung up to dry out. We also got to see a section where the weed was in jars for the curing process. Touring the commercial grow op was fascinating. Seeing the vegetative, flowering and curing stages of weed was very interesting. Since it was a commercial building, everything was giant and state of the art. The tour and learning about marijuana cultivation was a good pick by my boyfriend. I would say that it became the highlight of the trip. I did not know how much went into growing cannabis. It is almost like a science or even an artform. I would never want to grow my own product, but I could see where people would find this fascinating. If anyone is able to, they should check out a marijuana growing facility and tour it. I learned so much that day.
