5 Best Cities in the USA to Enjoy Cannabis

Written by on August 29, 2019 in Herbs, Seeds & Spices with 0 Comments

The legalization of cannabis for both medical and recreational use across many states in the US has given rise to a surprising yet unexpected industry: weed tourism. In many cities across the country, the legal status of marijuana has encouraged the growth of businesses that cater to the cannabis-consuming public. These businesses include everything from hotels with their very own dispensaries to speakeasy-style establishments that allow for unrestricted recreational use of marijuana.

As a result, some of these cities have become veritable marijuana meccas, playing host to hundreds of thousands of cannabis enthusiasts looking to enjoy their psychedelic trips in a completely different environment and with crowds whose interests are very similar to their own.

If you’re looking to be part of this group of interstate travelers who go from location to location in search of the best cannabis experience in America, then read on as we take a closer look at the top 5 best cities in the US to enjoy cannabis. If, on the other hand, you prefer to stay at home, you can still enjoy different cannabis products by taking advantage of online cannabis ordering services, like FlyBuds marijuana delivery service. Otherwise, start taking notes to plan for your next trip across the US!

San Francisco

San Francisco was one of the many hotbeds of pro-marijuana advocacy and activism in the US. Today, cannabis is in ready supply here, either through private dealers or recreational dispensaries.  In fact, the San Francisco Bay area is one of the most pot-friendly places in the world, with Oakland and Berkeley— two huge pro-cannabis cities in their own right—being just a stone’s throw away from the San Francisco city proper.

Some choice spots you should visit include Haight Street, the epicenter of weed movement in San Francisco, and Hotel Kabuki, which is well-known for its “cannabis happy hour.” Be warned, however, that smoking pot in public is still illegal in San Francisco, and doing so will likely get you into trouble with the law. To play it safe, enjoy your trip in one of the many lounges all over the city that allow cannabis use.

Los Angeles

Southern California has always been a pioneer in fully embracing recreational marijuana use. This is partly because SoCal has the perfect climate for growing top-class cannabis, with some marijuana brand owners calling it as the “wine country of cannabis”. Combine this with the usual tourist hotspots such as Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood sign, and more, and you’ve got a winning recipe for weed tourism success.

Visit Los Angeles today and you’re sure to meet many fellow marijuana enthusiasts there. You’re also sure to find establishments that welcome unrestricted consumption of the venerable herb. Top picks for the latter include The Standard, which is known not only for its accommodations but also by being the first hotel to have its own cannabis dispensary. Hicksville Pines Bud & Breakfast is yet another cannabis tourist hotspot, where you can savor marijuana in the company of others through special communal vaporizers.


Colorado is the very first state to legalize marijuana use. As such, you can expect its capital, Denver, to be miles and bounds ahead of everyone when it comes to the recreational consumption of weed. Proof of this is in the cannabis-related services available to the public, such as Loopr, a mobile cannabis lounge, and High-End Transportation, a weed transportation service that’s owned by a diverse cast of women and minorities.

There is also the 420 Tours package that you can partake in from the 16th Street Mall. Signing up for the tour equips you with everything you need to explore the city in style: a complimentary rental vaporizer, Uber and Lyft coupons, dispensary coupons, and cannabis lifestyle periodicals.

Other cannabis-related tourist spots to check out in Denver include the Adagio, a hotel set in a neighborhood steeped in history, as well as the many quaint marijuana dispensaries all over the city.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas is one of the newer cities that opened itself up to the sale of recreational cannabis, with the movement itself only starting around summer of 2017. Since then, it’s proven to be no slouch in keeping up with the times, not only profiting massively off the marijuana craze but also ensuring cannabis consumers have lots of good reasons to visit.

One of those reasons is Planet 13, the largest marijuana dispensary in the country, which features a 40,000 square-foot complex dedicated to marijuana products. Other must-see highlights include Dana’s Place in Las Vegas Releaf, the world’s first cannabis speakeasy, and Cannabition, the city’s very own cannabis museum. With so many marijuana friendly sites to explore in Las Vegas, you’d be remiss not to include it in your tour of the country.


Finally, we come to Seattle, Washington. Also known as the Emerald City, this quintessential American city is home to Hempfest, one of the largest marijuana festivals in the world. It’s also one that puts a sharp focus on the full destigmatization of marijuana and marijuana use. Considered as the “Woodstock of Weed,” Hempfest features non-stop music, a varied roster of speakers, arts and crafts exhibitions, and more—all of them related to marijuana. No matter what you’re into, so long as it’s all about weed, you’ll find something to enjoy here.

When you do get hungry, you can sate your appetite with the help of the many food trucks and food vendors strewn throughout the festival grounds. Many of these will even offer cannabis-infused goodies. Then, you can rest up at the Hotel Thompson, arguably one of the finer hotels in the state while also being completely cannabis-friendly.

Take a trip on the green side by exploring these 420-friendly cities

If you’re tired of enjoying your daily dose of cannabis in the comfort and security of your home, then it’s time to pack your bags along with your bong or vaporizer and get ready to explore the United States like never before.
