Summary and opinion by John Fouts.
With legal sales of recreational marijuana now available in Colorado, Washington, and many other states, more people are flocking to these areas to participate in high-end cannabis tours. There are a variety of options available to the discerning cannabis enthusiast from cooking classes to grow tours and dispensary visits, hotel stay and airport transportation services, and more. Acting as cannabis concierges, there are various companies that assist with arranging special services as well such as providing visitors with cannabis friendly lodging options. The city of Denver is listed specifically as a location in which hotels remain wary of cannabis consumption despite the legal status of the plant there. Vaping is the legal form of consumption in hotels, or a traveler could choose to eat edible products. Airbnb or HomeAway are listed as the best services to use to find a cannabis friendly stay. Bud and Breakfasts are another option some tourists may choose to check out. The Adagio is known to have a great 420 Happy Hour and to offer cannabis infused oil massages.
Seattle also offers many similar options, and educational opportunities to learn more about things such as growing conditions for cannabis, tours to testing labs, and visits to art shops. Cannabis is truly becoming an agri-tourism destination. Denver is considered sometimes to be the “Napa Valley of Weed”. Washington is notable for its fine offerings as well, and both destinations have a lot to choose from.
My Opinion: I believe there are a lot of opportunities that exist within the area of cannabis tourism. If an individual, or a couple, or a group is travelling to a legal area in the United States for cannabis consumption, the people partaking have discretionary income. The price range from the article ranged from $129 for a 4-hour tour to $1,000. These numbers seem reasonable based on experiences provided as described especially when consideration is given to the fact that these businesses are operating in violation of federal law assuming a higher risk.

Many mainstream coaches, therapists and matchmakers don't understand just how beneficial responsible cannabis consumption can be in life or in a relationship, and we provide a safe space without judgment. If smoking a joint or hitting a vape during a coaching session makes you feel more comfortable opening up, go for it! Our Head Coach Molly is a longtime cannabis enthusiast, and it's one of the reasons she and her husband are so compatible. We respect fellow cannabis consumers, and we understand where they're coming from.
In addition to all of its medicinal uses, we’ve experienced how cannabis gives perspective, increases focus, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances connections with others. We want to help consumers become confident in their relationship with cannabis, because cannabis is a perfect analogy for being genuine and accepting yourself as you are. That’s the true definition of confidence.
It is 4 am, but I have not slept yet. My stomach is rumbling, but I can not eat without throwing up. Sudden electric sensations in my head, known as brain zaps, are irritating. I also have to deal with mild, but persistent headache: it won’t respond to over-the-counter painkillers. Restlessness. Nausea. Shivers. It has been five days I got off Lexapro, the most popular SSRI antidepressant in the United States.
What does it have to do with legal cannabis, one might ask. Well, Lexapro is widely used to treat anxiety disorders, be it generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. In legal states doctors are allowed to recommend patients with anxiety to try CBD (cannabidiol, one of the dozens of cannabinoids, marijuana’s ) tinctures and high-CBD low-THC strains of marijuana.
Reading marijuana-devoted websites can be both educational and frustrating. The frustrating part begins when people who are in charge of attracting more visitors make up silly meaningless listicles, like this one that claims to provide 17 reasons to date a girl who smokes weed. Of course every girl who smokes weed will click on this. And some of them will also forward the link to their boyfriends, so it works.
I need to say that I highly respect the High Times magazine. It is probably the most important media outlet for drug culture of the 20th century. They still do quality journalism, although they have some competition now. But can’t they do better than trying to imitate Buzzfeed?
