About

What is the Cannabis Virtual Reality Network (CVRN)?

A picture says a thousand words, but it tells an entire story when you actually walk in it. Seeing something from the outside is different than actually experiencing it, which is what gave us the inspiration to create CVRN. CVRN’s passion is to help people around the world better understand Cannabis by giving users an unprecedented opportunity to see this misunderstood plant like never before. Through various shoots, we will create experiences that are educational, therapeutic, and entertaining for our community of users.

One of the first shoots on our radar is covering the upcoming 2017 Cannabis Cups, using these events as a platform for our growing community, sharing these experiences, and allowing us to bring in some of the most active, experienced, and educated of the Cannabis community.

We are living in a historical time in the United States. We want to be a big part of it. Don’t you?

We truly believe that we can help change the landscape for Cannabis and its users through CVRN.

As we prepare for launch, here is a look at just some of the content we are creating:

Educational Content

VR Cannabis Plant Overview/Structure. This includes things like plant breakdown, classification,  experiences, as well as virtual reality strain content and the top 25 strain overview (Type, Lab Results, Plant, Etc.) We will also be speaking to Cannabis industry leaders and educators to create content and to develop our live events.

Dispensary/Grow House Tours. We will be taking our community through virtual reality tours of leading dispensaries in the industry, doing walk throughs of full grow operations and interviewing Master Growers.

Capture The Cannabis Political Movement. Through virtual reality experiences, we will showcase the current political movements around Cannabis, tapping into local sources and experts in the industry.

Therapeutic Content

We are developing the world’s first CVIT experience (Cannabis Virtual Immersion Therapy)

Entertainment Content

Our community members will enjoy live coverage of Cannabis events like the Cannabis Cups, HempFests, conferences and expos. We want to be able to jump right into live events but also make sure we we can meet timelines with our Community.

Demo Video

We have shot a short experience for our local Farmacy in Wilmington to showcase what this could look like.  Take a look here: https://youtu.be/tcocdl8Ecxs

How Can You Get Involved?

CVRN will be at the forefront of the Cannabis conversation and the revolution currently happening in the United States. Our virtual reality network will ensure that more individuals understand the reality behind Cannabis use, its users, and those who grow it.

 It’s time to put an end to the plague of false information.

But…

We need your help! Every pledge, no matter the level, helps our vision take root. Please share our campaign socially and use the hashtag #CVRNKickstart

We so appreciate your support!

Our Cannabis community is bigger than just an online presence. This reward puts the power of our Virtual Reality Platform physically in your hands. Our StemKrates not only contain a branded Cardboard viewer but give you the first year full access to the network and the ability to share a Companion pass with others via the CompanaCans.

Risks and challenges

Risks:
Every venture, no matter how big or small, is going to have hurdles to overcome. CVRN will be no different. But, our ability to identify these obstacles ahead of time gives us the foresight needed to help us deal with them smoothly and effectively.

You don't plan to fail. You fail to plan.

Content Creation - Shooting amazing quality content in the 360 and Virtual Reality Medium is unlike any other type of media. Traditional 2D media requires an extensive knowledge of every aspect of film making. In the 3D environment we must take into account the challenge of creating amazing content, where everything in the sphere of lens is in the final production.

With that being said, we have partnered with one of the worlds most innovative and professional Virtual Reality production companies Expect VR out of Wilmington, NC. They will be providing the full-service Pre to Post for our content creation. Typical production costs per experience average $50,000 dollars industry wide. Great quality 4K productions in 360 are not cheap! But this cost is calculated in our pricing of the memberships on our network so we can provide our community with the highest quality original experiences.

Cardboard Viewers - Our Stem Krates include a custom branded VR Viewer for our donors! Production of this product could be time consuming and tedious, but we have shortcut production by having our partnerships with cardboard companies in place and ready for our orders.

Stem Krates **Currently a Prototype** - Stem Krates are an amazing gift for our donors. These crates will mimic prohibition era crates, symbolizing our continual fight for Cannabis Freedom. Each Crate will be hand assembled by Veterans in Wilmington, NC and will take some time to complete. Donor volume will dictate how many Veterans we must hire on to create your Krates, but luckily there isn't a shortage of veterans around in North Carolina.

Web Design and App - CVRN will first launch with a website and then an App integration. We are capable of developing the site to handle our first round of donors and launch, but we will outsource in the subsequent phase to help take our website to the next level and the creation or implementation of an App. Our integration into third party platforms will be ready for the Sony PSVR Network, Youtube 360, Facebook 360, and other Apps.

The CVRN team is more than prepared and ready to overcome any risks or problems that may arise with this amazing challenge of building a Virtual Reality Cannabis Community. We would love you to join in on this historic build!
