This New Travel Agency Helps Medical Marijuana Users Enhance Their Trips

Anyone who’s ever had to travel with medical marijuana knows it’s far from a seamless process.

CANRVE wants to make it easier.

The full-service travel firm offers a curated list of cannabis-friendly home rentals, dispensaries, lifestyle activities, events, and infused culinary services across the United States.

Medical marijuana patients can reserve any of these “safe travel options” by using the site’s booking engine.

“The recent changes in legality across the USA and Canada have created a gap in the travel marketplace for those who are dependent on marijuana as medicine and others who prefer to use cannabis as their recreational respite,” reads a press release from CANRVE.

“While cannabis use has been partially legalized, it is not allowed in public spaces and most traditional hotels still enforce a zero-tolerance policy.”

CANRVE - pronounced 'Can-Arve', according to the website - offers listings in the nine U.S. states that have legalized both medical and recreational use, as well as Canada. The company plans to launch options in Jamaica next month.

"We are passionate about the rights of the traveling cannabis community as well as scientific developments in the medical marijuana sector,” said CEO and founder Orbin Johnson in a statement, adding that the company plans to donate two percent of sales proceeds to cannabis research.

CANRVE recently launched a crowd-funding initiative that can be accessed here.
