Cannabis tourism is on the boom in cannabis legal states. There’s no secret in that fact. As the state of Colorado just yielded nearly $700M in 2015 sales, it is projected to surpass $1B for 2016. When you add up accommodations, food, transport, activities, and marijuana — the tourism industry has so many commercial opportunities. Where there is opportunity, technology has a tendency to weave itself into the fabric of the solution.
If you have itchy travel feet this new year, you may consider a trip to one of the few states that support and celebrate the legal marijuana. If so, check out our Top 5 Online Canna Travel Resources.
#1 Bud & Breakfast
If you could only travel with one online cannabis travel site this year, the team behind Bud & Breakfast make a pretty compelling argument for it being theirs. Working as a close carbon copy of Air B&B with interactive maps, calendar booking displays, and ease of transaction, much of the user experience value has been replicated in this online accommodation service.
Unlike the stuffy rules and regulations of established hotels, Bud & Breakfast connects travellers with local residence owners who are looking to rent their entire property, or a single room. While it’s no surprise that the listings are sparse outside of legal US states, the app points to a boom in awareness for canna tourism dollars. The listings for Colorado, Washington, and California go deep.
Mobile Usability Score: 4.5/5
TwoTenTwice is really more of a general information site with a dedicated section for travel. Within this section the site provides activity info and accommodation listings for Washington and Colorado. While there isn’t an app for TwoTenTwice, their website is mobile friendly and lays out well with an interactive map and listing of accommodations and activity vendors.
