Colorado is a playground for discovery year-round. From the highest sand dunes in North America to the Rocky Mountains, and the rolling plains in the east, Colorado is one of the most majestic places on Earth. That’s why it’s the perfect getaway spot for the best cannabis bed and breakfasts in the world. Here’s Dabdayz rundown of our Top 5 Cannabis B&B’s in Colorado.
Cannabis Law in Colorado
Colorado was one of the first U.S. states to prohibit Cannabis along with alcohol in the early 20th century. It wasn’t until the mid-1970s that NORML, along with a local DA, helped the state to decriminalize cannabis, winning over the state’s then Republican legislature with arguments as to money wasted on needless enforcement of marijuana laws.
In 2000, Colorado voters approved Amendment 20, which amended the State Constitution to allow the use of marijuana in the state for approved patients with written medical consent. And in 2012, Colorado legalized recreational cannabis use and cultivation for adults 21 and up.
Colorado’s first year with adult use cannabis on the legal market, including medical and rec, reached a total sales of $700 million. The state collected over $247 million in tax revenue in 2017, fees, and licensing costs. In short, Colorado paved the way not only for recreational cannabis, but also cannabis tourism, and that’s why it’s one of the best destinations on earth for a cannabis getaway.
Things To Know About Colorado’s Bud&B’s
Cannabis tourism is an enormous industry and Colorado is host to some of the most amazing private “bud & breakfasts” one could ever want to stay at. Before you book your flight though, you should take a minute to review some common etiquette of cannabis culture in Colorado.
Can I Smoke Weed in my Hotel Room in Colorado?
This is a pretty common question. By law, hotels can decide whether or not to permit smoking cannabis on their property, as long as it’s limited to less than 25% of the total rooms or confined to an outdoor smoking area.
Many hotels looking to funnel in cannabis travelers in the Denver area are permitting the use of vaporizers or e-nail dab rigs. So if you’ve got your dab rig set up with an e-nail, you’re good to go. I’m not sure about hotel policy on the torch though.
Most cannabis-themed Bed & Breakfasts, however, are private residences, and in Colorado, you can smoke cannabis wherever you want on a private residence. That being said, each B&B has unique rules that you should respect when traveling, but you won’t be limited with cannabis use as you would in a normal Colorado hotel.
Each of Colorado’s cannabis-themed B&B’s will provide varying amenities, which often include sanitized glassware, dab rigs, or vaporizers for enjoying cannabis and concentrates.
Some B&B’s are even able to provide licensed catering services that can supply you with shatter, live resin, or any top shelf flower you’d like to enjoy during your stay.
Here are some basic etiquette and planning tips you should consider when booking and staying with Colorado’s cannabis-friendly B&Bs.
Get The Details First
Does the B&B provide pipes, papers, grinders, etc.? Are their delivery or catering services for cannabis, or is cannabis included in the prices of the booking? Where in the B&B is smoking allowed, in the room or just in designated areas outside?
It’s important to get the details before booking to avoid any confusion with your trip. Don’t worry about every little thing though, most cannabis-friendly B&Bs are ready and prepared to cater to your luxurious cannabis needs.
Even if you’re looking for a romantic getaway in the Rockies, it’s likely that you’ll be sharing some common spaces with other fellow cannabis adventurers. As so, it’s very likely that you’ll be sharing cannabis with others. Perhaps you’ve passed the peace pipe many times, but in case you haven’t here are some helpful tips.
Guests Get Greens
That means that it’s customary to give the guest the first hit of a bowl or joint. It’s the tastiest, and polite thing to do.
Puff, Puff Pass
The bong is not a microphone and you should pass it to the left when you’re done. Don’t drool on it; don’t hold the joint forever while you tell a story. Be mindful of others who want a hit.
Clear The Chamber
It’s ok if you pulled through too big of a hit, but the longer the smoke sits the staler it gets. So clear it when you’ve caught your breath and don’t pass a stale it to your neighbor.
Cash The Bowl
Once the bowl has gone around, it’s bound to be cashed. Gonzo … done. Don’t hand a cashed, or empty, bowl to your neighbor. Clean out the ash and pack it up with some cannabis that you’ve brought to share, and pass it to your left offering greens to your neighbor.
Respect The B&B’s Wishes
Most places are super chill when it comes to cannabis in Colorado, but just because a B&B is cannabis friendly doesn’t necessarily mean that you can just blaze up wherever you like. If your hosts say no smoke in the room, smoke outside. If the hosts say only vaping indoors, well then you should probably ask if it’s ok to break out the torch and promptly ask if they’d like to take some dab rips.

This is one of the best cannabis friendly B&B’s in Colorado, but they strictly say no smoking on the property and in fire season you may not be allowed to have a campfire. However, vaping is allowed indoors and guests do receive a free bundle of firewood.
The owners of the property might seem a little square about letting stoners in on their luxury mountain lodge, but if they are cool with vaping indoors than break out the bangers and hash oil my friends!
Dabbing concentrates doesn’t produce smoke like a joint or bowl of burning flower, and although dabs produce cannabis aroma, the vapor dissipates rapidly and the odor doesn’t linger like flower or tobacco.
