New Heights Cannabis has also developed the first of its kind Canadian Cannabis Tourism Research Study to understand the demand for Canadian cannabis tourism experiences, and contextualize the average canna-tourist profile by exploring their preferences and aims for integrating cannabis experiences into travel plans.
A presentation of early indicators of the Canadian Cannabis Tourism Research Study will be presented at the New Heights Cannabis Tourism Summit to provide attendees with exclusive access to these crucial insights. The survey is currently open for submissions, and participants are eligible to win a $3,600 getaway, courtesy of HiBnb, while also having their say on the future of cannabis tourism.
