Although the International Church of Cannabis doesn't practice Christianity, it's still more than happy to help ring in Christmas. The Elevationist church will host a pop-up holiday market Friday, December 14, for anyone looking for locally made gifts to hand out during the holidays.
Church co-founder Lee Molloy says that after 4/20, when the church debuted, the group wanted to host other community events, and a pop-up market was a way to show people the church's beautiful interior while also highlighting Denver businesses and crafts.

"It's nothing crazy, just a small, Christmas-like market with local businesses," he says. "There will be some cool jewelry, small crafts, knickknacks — that type of thing." In addition to shopping, visitors will get to tour the interior of the church, which received an extensive makeover this spring when Molloy and co-founder Steve Berke brought in renowned artists Okuda San Miguel and Kenny Scharf to paint murals (San Miguel did the interior; Scharf painted the outside).
Vendors at the market will include ColorUp Therapeutics CBD Products, SureFineLoud Agate and Crystals, LitYogi Apparel by GreenLoveDenver, Kenesha Facello Photography & Holiday Cards, Jimmy Smrz Yoga and more. The market will be open from 3 to 6 p.m.; admission is free.
There will be CBD-infused massages available during the market, and a free yoga session (donations are accepted) for anyone who wants to stick around after, Molloy says; the church is also holding a toy drive for Toys for Tots through Sunday.
