Total Solar Eclipse

Portland cannabis tour company offering unique experience during total solar eclipse

Posted: Updated:

If people still have not decided where they will go to watch this year's solar eclipse, a Portland cannabis tour company is offering a unique experience and they guarantee it won't be a bad trip. 

What makes it so unique is that, although the eclipse will be seen in numerous states, Oregon is the only one within the path of totality where the recreational use of marijuana is legal. That means if someone wants to attend an eclipse viewing party catered specifically to cannabis users, they have to stay in the beaver state.

High 5 Tours in Portland is hosting what they're calling "The Stoner Eclipse". It's a chance to see a rare celestial event - all while partaking in a three-day pot party.

"I can't imagine you could ever be too high to witness a solar eclipse. I think the higher you are the more fun it'll be," said Sam Rosenbaum, owner of High 5 Tours. 

The tour will begin the Saturday before the eclipse. Rosenbaum and his crew will take as many as 100 cannabis connoisseurs on a worry-free trip to Unity, in Eastern Oregon. 

It's a six-hour journey to the Oregon eclipse camp, and VIP guests will make it, aboard Rosenbaum's yellow pot bus.

Along the way, guests will be able to sample products, including edibles. When they arrive, they'll learn more about each strain of marijuana. 

"We're going to do some classes and other things to show people different types of cannabis and ways to roll joints," said Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum has lots of experience giving large group tours for the chronically curious. He says, not everyone who signs up fits the stoner stereotype. In fact, he's met people of all ages. 

"I feel like older people have more fun because they can't believe they can smoke on a bus," Rosenbaum said.

He also says that about 90 percent of his guests are tourists. 

"We've had people from all over the country. We're up to like 30 states and about a dozen countries: Japan, Germany, Canada and Mexico," said Rosenbaum.

The toner eclipse tour comes with a few comforts of home - plus extras.

"You'll get a sleeping bag, tent and the food for all 3 days," said Rosenbaum. "It includes everything but the cannabis."

This tour is a joint effort. Rosenbaum partners with Homegrown Apothecary to supply party-goers with pot. Their specialists help folks pick out the bud that's best for them.

And when the munchies kick in, meals will be catered by Charlie's Deli, plus snacks will be on hand at all times. 

Now, if people are worried about having an adverse reaction to the pot, Rosenbaum says the worst thing that has ever happened during one of his tours is that someone fell asleep on the bus. 

The cost of The Stoner Eclipse tour starts at $420 per person.
