The Cannabis Crawl is the first event of PDX Weed Week, and is open to ticket holders interested in touring some of Portland best retail dispensaries. The Cannabis Crawl is on Wednesday, Nov. 30, beginning at 3p.m., and it works like this: attendees will meet up and break into groups. Each group will embark on a unique trek visiting 4-5 retail dispensaries, where Cannabis Crawl participants will get special pricing and other incentives. At the end of the trek, groups will come back together at the official Weed Week launch party to socialize and share their experiences. 

The PDX Weed Week lecture series begins Thursday, Dec. 1 and continues through Friday, Dec. 2.

PitchFest is another signature event of PDX Weed Week.
