We’re getting back to normal! As of this writing, the CDC is reporting that half of all American adults are fully vaccinated. That means that Covid is well on the retreat, case numbers are dropping, and we’re returning to our lives. It feels weird, no doubt. Just when we’ve gotten used to constant screens, social distancing, and masking, we’re starting to see the end. The beginning of a new chapter. And what’s one of the first things you’re going to get back to doing? You’re going to want to travel. So as you start to do some planning, here’s beautiful cannabis resorts to consider for your next vacation:
Are there really cannabis resorts?
Yes, they’re actually a thing, and cannabis travel in general is a fast growing segment of the weed economy, amongst other things. Some of these resorts are so elaborate that you can hold 420 themed events on the properties, such as weddings.
How are these different from a Bud and Breakfast?
We’ve talked about those before; Bud and Breakfast rentals are essentially airbnbs for weed enthusiasts and operate in the same way. But cannabis resorts are on a whole other level, and make for great retreats.
Sounds great, so where are these places, and what makes them so awesome?
They all have their own unique spin on the cannabis vacation. A few of these are in the U.S., some outside of the country, and all focus on luxury. Check it out:
Yep, that Tyson. But have an open mind: This soon-to-open property sprawls over 400 acres in Southern California. This ranch will include a hotel, spas, lodges, high end camping, a lazy river, and various tourist attractions. The ranch is also planning an events area, which will host festivals, as well as continuing education courses prospective cannabis farmers. Keep an eye on this one and the upcoming launch. It offers more than just a resort; it’s a lifestyle brand.
The Coral Cove Jamaica
If you’re itching to go to the Caribbean, this is definitely an option worth looking into. This tropical getaway has its own private beach, as well as its own cannabis grow. Along with coral reef diving, horseback riding, and ziplining, you can go on cave tours, and fish. A high-end retreat in which you can definitely recharge and get away from it all.
Stoke Surf House
Want to go to Spain? If so, check out this surf villa in the Basque region, near Zarautz Beach. You can take surf lessons and daily yoga classes while being allowed to smoke weed outdoors. If you’re looking for something that’s more about activities, and a laid back vibe with fewer frills, check out this option.
Back in California, this property is both cannabis and family friendly, a trend you should expect to see grow. Located in Mendocino County, you can check out the nearby Northern California hills and landscape. You’ll be in the company of owls, and you can bike with vineyards as part of the scenery. The resort even has pet services.
Cannabis resorts: What’s next
Again, expect to see cannabis travel be a huge part of the industry over the next few years, especially as weed continues to legalize, with more and varied options rolling out in more regions over time. Look for partnerships to roll out with edibles brands and infused dining, for example. Regardless of what these developments are, we’ll be sure to provide the details as that happens. So be sure to check back on this post, as it will update often.
