Based in Denver Colorado, is the one-of-a-kind International Church of Cannabis (ICC). Considered a legitimate religious organisation, The ICC opened its doors on April 20, 2017 – an ODE to 420.

The chapel is adorned with creative and colourful artwork by contemporary artists like Spanish painter Okuda San Miguel, who spent six days creating the chapel’s breathtaking interior.

While cannabis is a sacrament used during services, cannabis consumption is not allowed in the chapel when it’s opened to the public – celebrations of the “sacrament of cannabis” are held for members only.

Members of the International Church of Cannabis refer to themselves as ‘Elevationists’ who ritually use “the sacred flower” to accelerate and deepen self-discovery. ‘Elevationism’ adheres to no specific dogma while following the Golden Rule – treat others the way you would want to be treated.

There are no priests or bible readings at the ICC, instead, it’s run by cannabis activists who firmly believe that marijuana is a beneficial tool to improve one’s quality of life.
