Best Cannabis Vacations: 6 Unique Adventures for Cannabis Enthusiasts

In 2019, The New York Times declared cannabis tourism on the rise due to more states legalizing adult use or recreational cannabis. In adult use states like Massachusetts, entrepreneurs have stepped up to offer unique experiences like “high” tea parties or cannabis tours that take you behind the scenes and give you a closer look at the industry. 

Whether you want an escape, a culinary experience, or a cannabis-friendly activity to add to your calendar, we’ve collected six options that cater to cannabis enthusiasts.

If you’ve ever wanted to stay in a mansion, while enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, Maine Greenyards is for you. The private retreat in Auburn, Maine, features spacious suites with large common areas for guests to enjoy complimentary, homegrown cannabis

The destination features a heated indoor pool and hot tub with 24/7 access, along with a home theater, board games, and socializing opportunities. Take a walk or hike along the Androscoggin River, visit a nearby brewery or restaurant, or have a driver take you downtown, which is just a few minutes away from the mid-century mansion.

Note that smoking in public is illegal in Maine. Marijuana consumption in Maine can only take place on a private property, which Maine Greenyards is. Adults may have up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and marijuana concentrate. Driving while intoxicated is illegal in all New England states.
