A niche corner of the travel industry is getting increasingly popular among tourists who want to experience a cannabis friendly getaway.
As marijuana use becomes more widely accepted, travelers can go to BudandBreakfast.com to find accommodations in cities where the drug is legal.
The company, founded in 2013, features 2,000 active listings of cannabis-friendly lodging on its site in places like Chicago, New York, Hawaii, and Jamaica.
Like Airbnb, owners can list their home or business for guests. While some simply specify that they permit cannabis use on the property, others offer unique marijuana-infused experiences.
"We get dozens of bookings per day now," founder Sean Roby said. "We have places that are booked out six months in advance."
Where normal hotels leave chocolate or fresh towels on guests' beds, one Denver listing advertised a "free doobie" on the pillow for visitors.
Thanks to legal recreational use in 19 states, cannabis tourism is a $17 billion industry, according to data from Forbes. As this one-of-a-kind style of travel takes off, content creators are taking notice.
One TikToker shared a video detailing their time at Camp Laughing Grass, a weed-themed campground in Maine. The video went viral, garnering over two million views within one day of posting.
The property features cabins for "glamping" (a portmanteau of glamour camping), a river with water toys, a pavilion area for smoking and socializing with guests, and "smoking apparatuses," according to the Camp Laughing Grass official site.
According to the creator, weed is provided during happy hour and dispensaries are located near the campgrounds.
Washington bed-and-breakfast owner Nicole Butler offers her guests cannabis candy upon check-in, then meals and snacks for the "munchies," CNBC reports.
According to Butler, business is booming and the former hairstylist now manages the bed-and-breakfast full time.
"I've really just tried to give people what they're used to, just with the added element of cannabis," Butler told CNBC.
Marijuana friendly tourism is still evolving, but doesn't seem to be slowing down. Legal cannabis sales are projected to hit $42 billion in 2026, according to data obtained by CNBC.2022-09-25T16:21:34Z dg43tfdfdgfd
