Our Cannabis Wellness Tour Made CBS News 4 Denver!

The Verde Natural Wellness Tour Launch Party was a big success. Onto a full tour bus of excited tour-goers, we also invited local newscaster Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver and his camera crew. They caught some amazing footage of the tour, from the party bus to the inside of the Verde Natural grow.

A few members of the My 420 Tours team also got a chance to interview with Hillan, articulating the mission and passion behind launching this new tour. See the transcript of the video below.



A Colorado recreational pot tourism company known for its party bus is starting a new kind of cannabis tour. Joel Hillan reports it will focus on the potential medical benefits of marijuana.

Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver:

My 420 Tours is expanding their business model.

Danny Schaefer:

What we’re seeing is the option of cannabis and wellness, and the ways in which it can increase the quality of life.

Dr. Joseph Cohen:

I’m totally blown away, actually, by what cannabis can do to treat so many different things.

Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver:

After practicing obstetrics and gynecology for 35 years, Dr. Cohen now focuses on the healing properties of cannabis. His class is part of the new tour.

Dr. Joseph Cohen

It’s so much more than a recreational drug. I want people to understand how it can be used as a medicine.

Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver:

Among its many practical uses, Dr. Cohen suggests cannabis can be used as an alternative to opioids.

Dr. Joseph Cohen:

It’s the most amazing medicine I have ever used in over 40 years of practice. Something that can treat, in a nontoxic way, so many different disorders, that help people get off the toxic medications. It’s pretty incredible

News 4 Denver Ryan Manners

Ryan Manners:

I’m ready to get on the bus, so I’ll let you know after that.

Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver:

People like Ryan Manners, who attended the tour today. A veteran, he says the VA prescribed him 12 different pills, including opioids, to treat various ailments. He credits cannabis with not only helping him feel better, but helping get off all those pills and turn his life around.

Ryan Manners:

There is a better way to live your life than being on opiates all the time. There is hope.

Joel Hillan of CBS News 4 Denver:

A hope Shaefer thinks others can find on these tours. In Denver, Joel Hillan, covering Colorado First.


We were told that today was the first Wellness Tour, and that it was sold out.
