Bud And Breakfast Offers Marijuana Lodging
“We’ll Keep The Bowl Burning For You”
Colorado has started offering those who enjoy the recreational use of Marijuana, cannabis-friendly “Bud+Breakfast” homes to stay in. Currently there are two houses which offer their guests munchie-friendly meals and “Wake & Bake” Breakfast sessions.
Joel and Lisa Schneider moved from New York to Colorado when they saw an opportunity in what is being dubbed as “Marijuana Tourism.” In a segment done by 60 Minutes Overtime, the Schneider’s explain that Lisa’s love of entertaining and Joel’s love of marijuana came together to form a “Bud and Breakfast,” where guests can enjoy sampling different strains in a social setting.
According to The Telegraph, the hotel offers a “4:20 Happy Hour” in its communal area where various strains of marijuana are up for sampling, along with beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres. The rooms range anywhere from $199 to $399 per night, including meals and bottomless mimosas. Guests are encouraged to experiment with whatever marijuana products they want to, but only in the communal areas. A large part of the experience is encouraging the activity to be a social one.
The Schneider’s won’t be stopping at just hotels, they also have plans to open a “Canna-Camp” which is currently under development. The camp will have cannabis-themed activities such as cooking classes, horticulture, a hot-tub and possibly more.
It seems that Marijuana Tourism is not just happening in Colorado. A web-site, BudandBreakfast with a similar concept to Airbnb, was recently launched. The site allows people all over the world, the opportunity to find cannabis-friendly homes to stay in.
Colorado became the first state to legally sell marijuana on January 1, 2014. Since then tourists and entrepreneurs have taken advantage of the legalized drug. In Colorado’s first year alone, the demand was so high that retailers keep running out of stock. Colorado was able to collect $44 million in taxes in its first year of legalized marijuana sales, reported The Telegraph.
