Best Cities in the US For a Weed-Inspired Weekend of Cannabis

The number of US states that allow recreational cannabis continues to grow each election cycle. Now a whole new “cannabis class” of travelers – are getting out of town for the weekend to explore different cities that are more weed-friendly. Even for travelers that are less experienced, the legality of this wonderful plant is drawing the curiosity of people passing through on pleasure or business. So if you want to “up your game” plan a weekend getaway to one of the best cities in the US for a weed-inspired weekend of cannabis!

How many states have legalized weed?

The Marijuana Policy Project reports that 68 percent of Americans support the legalization of marijuana and 90 percent support its medical use. Currently, there are 18 US states where recreational cannabis is fully legalized. This means anyone over the age of 21 can walk into a recreational dispensary (like a bar) and purchase their preferred form of weed (like a beer).

What to Expect When Visiting a Dispensary

Before you can enter the dispensary (bar) they will check your id (driver’s license / passport) to verify your age (like at the bar). Once admitted, you’ll be greeted and they will typically ask if you are new to dispensaries so they can guide you to the right spot. You’ll be given a weed menu (like a beer menu) with an assortment of options such as flowers, concentrates, edibles, and pre-rolled joints just to name a few. Your budtender (bartender) will have plenty of knowledgeable guidance to advise you on the types of weed you might want to enjoy, and they sincerely love talking with newbies.

Cannabis strains 101

There are different types or “strains” of weed. Indica, Hybrid, and Sativa. Each strain is grown for its different attributes and no 2 strains are the same. Before you visit the best states in the US for a weed-inspired weekend of cannabis – you’ll want to know how to order your weed, because it’s like ordering a beer. Lotssss of types – all beers / weed. So if you’re new to buying the Mary Jane here is a quick 101 on cannabis strains.

inDica

  • Relaxing
  • Calming
  • Concentrated in the body “body buzz”

Known for relaxation and stress relief, these strains can make you sleepy and lethargic so I would recommend Indica and Indica-dominant hybrids as a good choice for evenings when you’re ready to wind down.

IN-DI-CA = IN-DA-COUCH

Sativa

  • Energizing
  • Stimulating
  • Concentrated in the head

Sativa and Sativa-dominant strains are known to be more euphoric and stimulating. They’re more suited for high-energy levels and creative tasks.

Hybrid

  • My personal favorite.
  • Best of both worlds
  • Balance of the body and mind

Hybrids come in thousands of different varieties. They are a blend of different strains bred to accentuate different aspects of a particular strain. I prefer hybrids because it “levels me out” so I do not get too sleepy or too energetic, which makes it a good choice for day vaping.

The Stoner Scale

Like anything with a stimulating effect, there are different “levels” of high. Use the stoner scale of 1-10 1 being not high 10 being super high. The good range for newbies is 2-6, those more experienced can get to level 15 or higher. You’ll understand the scale if / once you try weed. Each individual has a “too much” or “too fast” setting that may be completely different than someone else. Try to remember how long it takes for the form you’ve chosen to kick in so you do not exceed your limit which can sometimes lead to anxiety.

When we travel around the US, I take into consideration whether or not weed is recreationally legal in the state we would be visiting. Because I do not want a drink at dinner, I want a chocolate chunk of THC.
