Travelling to fantastical destinations can be nerve-racking, and that is especially true for consumers because it’s nearly impossible to predict what to expect, but luckily, you’ve got us to guide you through the more challenging parts of the experience. Whether you’ve already booked your dream 420 friendly vacation or you’re looking for inspirational ideas, tips, or tricks that will allow you to indulge while having the time of your life, we’ve got you covered.

Leave your stash at home

It might be tempting to pack your stash for the trip. After all, these types of adventures are usually expensive, so it would be nice to save some money, and it can be daunting leaving home without it. Still, flying with weed is nearly impossible, and in most cases, an illicit activity that could land you in jail or charged and ultimately doing so could cost you the adventure of your dreams, which is why it’s best to leave it at home. Just take the time to research some suitable vendors that will be available upon your arrival before you go, and you’ll be all set.

Bring only brand new or spotless devices (or none at all)

Since laws regarding travel with cannabis products vary greatly from one place to the next, and most areas completely prohibit it, devices that are caked with thick resins are generally treated in a similar manner. Though you might prefer to have your favourite pipe or bong by your side for this journey, it will only be safe to do so if it’s completely clean or you purchase a brand-new version to bring. This is true for bongs, grinders, rolling kits, dab tools, and anything else you might have in tow.

Book a 420 friendly hotel

It might be legal to smoke weed where you’re going, but if you don’t book a 420 friendly hotel, then you might find yourself in uncomfortable and less than ideal situations just to smoke it. Unless you want to stand out on public sidewalks, being forced to leave the comfort of your room or resort to indulge, it’s safer to opt for a stay that encourages cannabis consumers to be themselves. Of course, these gems can be hard to find in some places, but their charm and benefits are worth the search.

Get familiar with local laws

Every single state, province and country has its own set of rules when it comes to cannabis, so it is important to research and familiarize yourself with the laws enforced by the area you plan to visit. Some have incredibly strict possession limits, while others harshly condemn public consumption, and breaking these rules isn’t going to result in situations you want to be a part of. So, arm yourself with all you need to know before you go so that you aren’t risking charges or arrest during your vacation.

Look for cannabis tours

The best vacations for stoners include cannabis-friendly hotels, and of course, access to some herb, but even if you go out of your way to rent a space that’s down with a bit of green, it might be hard to have fun outside of your room without some professional direction, and that’s where green tours can come in handy. See the sights and sounds with a knowledgeable local, sign up for classes, or journey through local cannabis culture with guides who know where the hidden local secrets are, and you’ll be sure to have a great time.
