As the legalization of recreational marijuana rolls out across North America, travel and hospitality companies are increasingly catering to travelers seeking a new high. Privately held pot tourism companies such as Seattle-based Kush Tourism and Denver-based Colorado Cannabis Tours operate tours of cannabis-related sites and serve as tourist resources for pot-friendly lodgings.
A phenomenon known as “bud and breakfast” is also on the rise, and the budandbreakfast.com website lists more than 400 marijuana-friendly properties. Maine Greenyards in Auburn is one of the first such properties in New England. The “cannabis-themed boutique accommodations” are set amid a garden where various strains of the plant are grown and the owners are on hand to provide cannabis education.
