4 Essential Tips for People Planning to Do Cannabis Tourism

Published

Cannabis Tourism

Cannabis products and the plant itself may be becoming more mainstream in the United States but there are places in which adult-use recreational marijuana remains prohibited. Because of this, a lot of people who want to consume legal cannabis and experience the freedom of using the plant in a legitimate environment choose to participate in cannabis tourism.

What exactly is Cannabis Tourism?

This is a subset of tourism that has been rising in the past few years when marijuana is gaining mainstream recognition. If you are not familiar with this, just think about other types of tourism. Cultural tourism is the kind where travelers aim to experience and take part in the culture of the destination, while medical tourism is the type where tourists go to a destination to seek healthcare.

With this, it is easy to understand that cannabis tourism is a subset in which tourists go to places where they can consume legal marijuana. This offers the peace of mind of consuming the plant in a safe and potentially more accepting environment. Moreover, this gives travelers the chance to try out unique marijuana and CBD products that are only available in your destination of choice.

Planning on going on a trip and take part in the destination’s cannabis tourism industry? Here are 4 important tips you should remember:

  • Research about and comply with marijuana laws

As a tourist, the responsible thing to do is to do your research about the place you are planning to visit. One of the first things you should review is the laws in the place. You do not want to get entangled in any kind of legal issues, particularly marijuana-related ones. For example, did you know that Amsterdam is planning to ban tourists from buying marijuana products? Failing to know this can lead to headaches and wasted money. Make sure you check your local laws to make sure you are compliant. For more information on all things cannabis including seeds, visit the Amsterdam Seedshop website.

Aside from knowing cannabis-related laws that cover your destination, you want to make sure that you comply with the laws. This includes the amount you are allowed to carry on your person to the places where you can purchase legal products.

Cannabis Tourism, Tips

  • Respect the local culture

All kinds of hobby and enthusiast groups have developed a culture that can be unique to the place’s particular community. If you come from a place where you have a certain set of norms and accepted behaviors, you cannot expect other communities to have the same set of values. This is why research is important. It lets you know what to do and what not to do when it comes to marijuana. Of course, you must respect the local culture as a tourist.

  • Seek out unique experiences

The reason you are going on a tour is to experience new things that you could not in your home state or country. Because of this, you want to make sure that you get the most out of your trip by seeking out unique strains and products. You might also want to look for establishments that offer one-of-a-kind experiences such as cannabis cafes, bus tours, and other similar places and activities.

  • Consult local budtenders

Not sure where to start? The best way to go is to find a dispensary and consult the budtender. These individuals are familiar with the place’s laws and culture. Moreover, you can also expect them to be knowledgeable about products and experiences that could be worth your while.

Going on a cannabis tour is definitely one of the must-have experiences any cannabis enthusiast should have. This way, they can expand their horizon by checking out what communities in other places have to offer. It can also serve as a networking and research opportunity for those planning to launch their own business.

Rey Rey Rodriguez: Entrepreneur, Visual Artist and Cannabis Advocate

An interview with The Mind of Rey Rey® founder, Rey Rey Rodriguez.

When did you first try cannabis?

I was 13 years old the first time I tried cannabis.  I smoked socially throughout high school, stopped around the age of 19, and then picked it back up in my late 20’s.

What inspired you to smoke?

I always had an admiration for the plant.  Everyone I idolized as a kid, and the people I admire today are all considered potheads. I grew up watching Cheech & Chong’s films, and all my favorite musicians from the 60s till today, as well as my favorite athletes, public figures, and celebrities (Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Mike Tyson, Dave Chappelle, Michael Phelps, Cypress Hill, Snoop, Dre, Biggie, Pac, Nick & Nate Diaz, Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, Eddie Bravo and more) were / are all advocates of the herb.

Two of my favorite podcasts are B Real’s “Smokebox” and Mike Tyson’s “Hotboxin’,” where the hosts interview their guests while smoking.  One of my favorite events to watch is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition called, “High Rollerz,” where the competitors smoke before they compete at the highest level.

No one can say that cannabis is a lazy or unintelligent person’s drug anymore.

What about cannabis do you like or enjoy?

I smoke / vape both Sativa and Indica, which affect me in two completely different ways.

Sativa clears my mind, allowing me to be present and to focus on whatever the current task at hand is.  Whether I’m working, reading, studying, practicing, or doing something else that requires concentration, it allows me to be more present and to dissect, observe, and problem solve better.

The intensity in which I interpret information heightens, and I find myself, breaking down art, music, movies, body movement, meditation and even memories on a deeper level. My imagination and ideas are more vivid. For me, sativa is good for any physical or mental activity.

I use indica for rest, relaxation, to calm the body and mind when it’s time to wind down, and to fall asleep.  This one helps clear my mind from any worry and stress.  It zones me out, I become one with my mattress and pillow, making my body feel weightless, and filling me with a cooling effect from the darkness as I lay there with my eyes closed.  Indica is perfect when you’re ready to knock out.

Rey Rey Rodriguez napping after smoking indica


What would you say to those that still think cannabis is a dangerous drug?

I don’t think it’s for everyone but, the days of “Reefer Madness” and everyone assuming that pot will make us dumb, slow, brain dead, or will lead us to crack and heroin are behind us.  Cannabis is legal throughout the US in most states either for recreational or medicinal purposes.  Cancer, mental health, athletic recovery, brain trauma, and many other conditions are being treated with cannabis.  I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, OCD, and ADHD.  I’m not sure if that doctor diagnosed me correctly, but I do know that his recommendation for all of those conditions was marijuana. 

Is there anything you’d recommend to those wanting to learn more about cannabis?

Anyone can do a Google search for most questions.  I like to refer those interested in current information on all things cannabis to visit High Times Magazine’s website.  And anyone that would like to learn a bit of the plant’s history and about the negative propaganda that led to it becoming illegal, should read Jack Herer’s book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.”

Here’s How to Use CBD Safely Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Here’s How to Use CBD Safely Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019, shortly called COVID-19, has caused an unprecedented and dramatic impact on communities all over the world – including CBD enthusiasts. As governments from different states and countries impose home quarantine and social distancing policies, it is only natural that users of this popular compound are facing drastic changes in their ways of consumption in order to keep up with the protocols.

If you’re one among these users, knowing what the dos and don’ts are when using CBD products like portable vaporizers amid a pandemic is necessary to ensure a safe and fun CBD experience. To help you achieve that, we have prepared a list of the things you need to keep in mind while threats of the deadly disease is still a worldwide problem.

Read on.

Things to Do – How to Use CBD Safely

Buy Only from Reputable Dispensaries

As the health crisis worsens, supplies for resources are also expected to shrink, including CBD. Since there is an ongoing protocol for everyone to stay at home and practice social distancing, some suppliers of cannabidiol are expected to stop their operations. As a result, consumers are to be left with limited store choices, which fraudsters can take advantage for their personal gains.

In times like this, when transactions are primarily done online, it’s best to ensure that the one you’re seeking supply of CBD for is a legit and reliable dispensary.

To prevent the risk of falling victim to criminals, it’s best to limit your options to reputable stores only. Before heading straight into the checkout and providing your credit card information, make a habit of conducting a background check on the site you’re visiting first. Once you’ve verified that the details provided are true and that the store actually operates as a legal supplier, it is then that you can only start picking the products you want to get from the site.

Consider How Much THC the Product Contains

While it’s a popular belief that CBD works best with a little THC, it’s always a safe bet to get a product that only contains as low as the 0.3 percent cutoff required for CBD products. That is exactly what LA Fresh CBD touts in its products.

Primarily, this is because THC works as a psychoactive component, which means taking a dose of it can drive you straight into the cloud nine, or what people call the marijuana “high.” Since the COVID-19 pandemic has left the economy almost immobile, finding yourself in an unpleasant and dangerous level of head high will leave you helpless, as people are expected to stay on their homes, establishments are normally closed, and medical professionals are busy responding to the needs of the swelling number of infected patients.

Don’t Share

Sure, while cannabis enthusiasts live by a communal way of life, now’s not the time to remain faithful to that culture. Essentially, since the novel coronavirus has been proven to be transmittable via respiratory droplets and contact routes, sharing your vaping device with your favorite pals is a big no-no.

Aside from this, although it’s a known fact that CBD oils, gummies, and other related products are more satisfying when shared in groups, practicing social distancing of at least 1 meter or 3 feet is still more important to secure your safety amid the outbreak.

CBD Oil, Cannabis Oil

The Bottom Line

In this time of medical and economic upheaval, aligning your every action to what’s proper and necessary should be everyone’s top priority. Sure, while you’re still free to enjoy your favorite CBD products, practicing these necessary measures come as a compulsory action from anyone in the community.
