While the rules certainly won’t (and certainly haven’t) stop a significant portion of attendees from bringing in a joint or two, as it goes with most other festivals, Weedmaps, the world’s first marijuana technology and media brand, has reportedly prepared a solution for the more cautious festival guests who still want to get a little high.
As TMZ reports, Weedmaps will be setting up a marijuana “oasis” just outside of the festival’s entrance in the desert. “Weedmaps and Talent Resources are building a compound 6 miles from the music fest to offer VIP guests a spot to chill with Cali’s finest bud. Our ganja sources tell us the spot will feature two grow houses, a greenhouse, and five geodesic domes to test different strains from GenX, Brass Knuckle and West Coast Cure,” TMZ writes.
You can check out a mock-up of the domes over at TMZ. Each dome will supposedly offer a different THC experience, including vaping, edibles, and traditional smoking.
Launched in 2008, and previously labeled as the “Yelp of marijuana dispensaries” by TechCrunch, Weedmaps’ website offers a community where marijuana users connect with other users in their geographic region to freely discuss and review local cannabis co-operatives, storefronts, medical doctors, and delivery services.
While those attending Coachella may have felt burned about losing Beyoncé, a marijuana “oasis” just might be the ultimate burn to make up for it.
