With recreational cannabis making gains across the Americas, and medical legalization and decriminalization taking hold elsewhere around the globe, it’s only the beginning for the budding industry that is and will be pot tourism. Needless to say, there are lots of miles yet to go before you’re smoking a joint at the St. Regis. Cities and states are still trying to work through public consumption and social use regulations, so as a tourist to a legal city, the challenge remains: you can get it, however, you can’t smoke it. Anywhere. (Full disclosure: I was nearly arrested after vaporizing in a Vail hotel room in 2013 and have to use the old towel-under-the-door trick occasionally).
A few cannabis-friendly Airbnb listings will be a consequence of a fast Internet search of the destination city, however the company will not include that as an official filter and declined to reply to its stance for this particular story. Meanwhile, cannabis-centric listing sites including the Travel Joint and Bud and Breakfast have found the slack, offering databases of listings and bespoke experiences specifically for marijuana-minded travelers. While it may be tricky to find accommodations which are 420 Friendly, the knowledge is definitely worth it when you do. Nowhere is the fact that truer than for that nine incredible locations below.
From those providing cannabis upon arrival and smoking accessories in-room to color-changing jacuzzis as well as a guided excursion to Bob Marley’s favorite swimming spot, we trawled through numerous listings to find some seriously stellar and officially cannabis-friendly options. Here’s the global guide for where you can check in on your own next vacation.
Traveling to the beginning of it all? Then you’ll want in which to stay the center from it all around this two-story luxury loft located just one block from Coors Field and within walking distance for the It neighborhood of RiNo. Smoking flower is allowed inside, but you’ll wish to have the majority of your sessions on the roof deck for views of downtown from your jacuzzi-including color-changing lights. On the contrary, should you prefer a hotel, the Magnolia is the greatest in the few in Denver that enable vaporizing in-room.
As arguably the tropical destination for cannabis smokers, the plant itself is technically still illegal in Jamaica, and few resorts officially claim 420-friendly status (although even in the five-star properties, some staff offer up herb immediately upon check-in). Steer clear of tour operators like Hot Box Jamaica, which operates its own lodge (and is a horror story for another time) and head for your lax Little Bay Cabins away from Negril. Here, you’ll locate an untouched slice of true Rasta culture stand out, Bob Marley himself had his beach house with this very shore. The rustic resort even provides a tour that’ll take you to go to its remaining mqjtnj and then for a swim in the personal swimming cave.
An expansive western lodge is exactly how to take your journey for the high country up a notch. Five bedrooms accommodate approximately 11 guests for an ultimate mountain escape with family or perhaps a crew of friends. Cannabis along with a vaporizer are offered for guests, that you can consume inside-whether its cozied up close to the double-height fireplace within the soaring great room or in the open chef’s kitchen while whipping up a home-cooked feast. Outside, you’ll locate a jacuzzi, a pond for ice skating (which is stocked with fish during the summer), direct river access, and lots of breathtaking spots to spark up.
One of the few dedicated cannabis-friendly Airbnb listings, this host has gained glowing reviews for his cannabis-welcome haute hippie space. The private entry guest room is equipped with each of the comforts of any luxury hotel, but here, the community spaces stick out. All cannabis smoking accessories are provided, along with “the essentials for ultimate relaxation” like art supplies, yoga mats, Bose speakers, nightly campfires, and a saltwater outdoor hot tub.
