Whether “puff, puff, pass” is your daily motto or you’re just interested in the green, the legalization of marijuana in nine states has pushed it right into the mainstream. Marijuana tourism is the newest trend in luxury, custom-made vacations. This year, at least six more states will vote on legalization, and the Czech Republic, Portugal, and Spain will join Holland in making it legal for people to use CBD for personal use.
While there is still a lot of red tape surrounding cannabis usage, the figurative (and real) Pandora’s box of weed has opened up dramatically for visitors hoping for a sativa-infused getaway. Can you see yourself sipping a cannabis drink at your next “high”-end dinner party? On a girls’ weekend away, why not visit the “Napa Valley of Weed”? By the way, you can always go to https://hometownherocbd.com/collections/delta-8-thc-edibles to get a pack of different interesting products for purchase. We’ve researched the best weed vacations and compiled a handy dandy dank list of locations that will satisfy even the “highest-end high.”
#1 – CBD-Infused Cocktails at Madison on Park (San Diego, California)
Head to Madison on Park for a high-end night out. Mr. Nice Guy, which costs $18, is manufactured with cannabidiol oil. CBD oil, which is cold-pressed from the cannabis plant, has minimal to no psychoactive effects (meaning it won’t get you high) and is claimed to have medicinal advantages, which range from anxiety alleviation to pain treatment. Mr. Nice Guy, created by the bar manager, is a concoction of mezcal, CBD oil, matcha, coconut milk, pineapple, and lime. If this isn’t your favorite CBD ingredient combination, you can add a $5 CBD oil add-on to any of the drinks on the Build Your Own Old Fashioned menu.
#2 – Serra Dispensary (Portland, Oregon)
Do you still associate a trip to a dispensary with a long, dark corridor, beaded curtains, and neon mushroom posters? Say welcome to Serra, a greenhouse-inspired dispensary that is hands-down one of the most beautiful we’ve ever witnessed. The brand’s flagship location is in an 1889 historic building in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood. The people who run it say that it is “an experienced and curated CBD retail location that rethinks, redefines, and sets the standard for progressive pot culture.”
#3 – Legendary Cannabis Coffeehouse Culture (Amsterdam, Holland)
Amsterdam is and will always be a hotspot for marijuana pilgrims. Since 1976, when Dutch legislators pioneered a new approach to soft drugs, down-to-earth tolerance has been the norm in the Netherlands. In Amsterdam, approximately 250 coffee shops are authorized to offer the sticky icky. Over 2 million visitors visit Amsterdam and these famed cannabis coffee houses each year, only to (legally) sit streetside and smoke a delectable delicacy.
#4 – Jupiter Hotel: First Cannabis-Friendly Package Deal (Portland, Oregon)
The Jupiter Hotel is a boutique hotel in the heart of Southeast Portland, Oregon. Even Architectural Digest has taken note of the high design appeal at a reasonable price. In conjunction with Dope Magazine, it is also the first hotel in Oregon to provide a cannabis-friendly package to visitors. It contains a Munchie kit, a vape pen, a copy of Dope Magazine, and a discount to local dispensaries. While there is no smoking in the rooms or CBD in the packages, they make it a breeze to enjoy the squeezy.
#5 – First In-House Hotel Dispensary: Lord Jones (West Hollywood, California)
Hollywood, as usual, is at the vanguard of cannabis cultural change. Book a stay at The Standard in Hollywood for the ultimate experience and enjoy the first ever hotel dispensary in cooperation with Lord Jones’ famed edible elegance. We’ve heard that this includes weed-infused travel-size shampoo bottles and CBD chocolates placed on guest pillows.
#5 – Weed Bars at Weddings (Alaska, California, etc.)
If you want Sativa at your wedding, you’ll have to fly to Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, where marijuana bars are legal. Wedding planners that specialize in cannabis planning, bow tie-clad “budtenders” to handle the open pot bar, and even high-end transportation companies with a joint-rolling concierge are available to couples. There are entire websites dedicated to the art of planning a classy, CBD-infused event for people who only need a little inspiration.
#6 – My 420 Tours: Completely Curated Cannabis Experiences (Denver, Colorado)
While this information may not be available on the Colorado State Board of Tourism’s website, cannabis tour providers have popped up in the Mile High City. My 420 Tours offers workshops ranging from “Cannabasics Sommelier” to “Sushi & Joint Rolling,” or you may gather your friends for a weekend and go further into a totally catered CBD experience. This includes 420-friendly hotel accommodations, Grow & Dispensary tours, the aforementioned workshops, and cannabis cooking lessons.
#7 – Nipton, CA: First Town Owned by a Cannabis Firm (Nipton, California)
American Green, the largest publicly listed cannabis firm in the United States, purchased the village of Nipton for $5 million in 2016, only 60 miles south of Las Vegas. The startup intends to begin by bottling water laced with CBD, a cannabis component associated with pain and inflammation relief. From there, American Green intends to attract similar businesses, such as CBD and mineral spas, dispensaries, artist-in-residence programs, gourmet events, and bed-and-breakfasts, to “complete the delightful small town experience.”
