Where should you travel in the next high tourism season?
With more and more jurisdictions legalizing or decriminalizing the cannabis plant, cannabis tourism is now a real thing. If you’d like to incorporate the healing power of cannabis into your next getaway, then the high season has arrived, and here’s where you need to go.

Jamaica’s rich cannabis tradition stretches back to its Rastafarian roots. Accordingly, many centers in the country now offer healing by working mindfully with the plant. Coral Cove Wellness Resort is one such place. Basically, it offers cannabis lovers an alternative to the tourist hotspots. They have a wide selection of home-grown cannabis on-site from which their capable chefs whip up some delicious cannabis-infused dishes. And with mineral hot springs nearby, it’s the place to truly connect with nature and the healing power of cannabis.
Cannabis Social Clubs in Spain
If you’re planning a beach holiday in Spain, then why not take in some of the cannabis social clubs spread across its cities? With lenient and progressive attitudes towards cannabis, such clubs offer cannabis-lovers the opportunity to purchase and consume cannabis for both recreational and medicinal use. The northeastern region of Catalonia leads the way with over 700 cannabis social clubs, and they often play live music and organize other entertainment events inside.

A Cannabis-Lover Haven in South America
Uruguay was the first country in the world to completely decriminalize cannabis. This came thanks to the left-leaning Jose Mujica government in 2013. And if there was ever a place to enjoy cannabis, then it’s Uruguay. With beautiful beaches, splendid cuisine, and extensive vineyards, it already has the nature, food, wine, and culture. With cannabis freely available and destigmatized, it’s the perfect combination to explore one of the lesser-known regions in South America.
For those visiting Uruguay, it’s illegal to purchase cannabis, but it’s still legal to accept it as a gift from a local, meaning circumventing that particular law is never an issue.

Located in Denver, Colorado, My 420 Tours were one of the first companies to pioneer a new form of cannabis tourism. You won’t see them advertised on the Colorado State Tourism Board’s website.

The Cannabis Coffeehouses of Amsterdam
Amsterdam has long since been a mecca for cannabis lovers. The Dutch government went a very different way to the rest of Europe in the approach to cannabis in the mid-1970s, and the result has been a thriving tourist industry where cannabis consumers flock from Europe and further afield.
Moreover, there are over 250 coffeeshops in Amsterdam alone, and they attract over two million tourists per year. With abundant flower, hashish, and edibles on sale in coffeeshops, visitors are often spoiled for choice. Just remember that much of the Amsterdam cannabis is notoriously strong.
High Season: An Expanding Concept
Cannabis tourism seems set to expand in unison with the legalization movement. The stigma is waning. Moreover, the attitude of the public is changing. As it does, high season may well soon come to mean something very different right across the globe.
