A Weed Tourist’s Guide to Portland
If you come from a prohibition state where partaking in cannabis is limited to puff-puff-passing a joint handed to you by some strangers at a music festival, coming to Oregon can feel like crash landing in a promised land where the streets are paved with kif.
From neighborhood dispensaries to bud-and-breakfasts to mellow, terpene-infused cocktails, there are so many ways to consume THC and CBD in Portland it’ll make an outsider’s head spin. Shoot, it sometimes even overwhelms the natives.
Fortunately, we took some of the legwork out of finding the best cannabis experiences in Stumptown, and created this handy weed tourist road map. From dining and shopping to activities and lodging, we’ve got you covered in the many fun ways to explore Portland’s rich cannabis culture.
WHERE TO STAY
1. The Doctor’s House
The great irony of parachuting into Portland’s cannabis scene is that, due to public clean-air and consumption laws, there are few places to legally smoke. Hotels are out, so you’ll have to find a weed-friendly Airbnb—in this case, that stands for “bud-and-breakfast.” To that end, you’ve got a few options, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find better hospitality than you will with Bill, a professional in the medical cannabis industry who runs this cozy, art-deco home in the Alberta Arts District. Staying at the Doctor’s House, you feel instantly a part of the community, and right at home. No one will bat an eye if you wake and bake, and your morning toke might be accompanied by fresh coffee and homemade muffins, as your host is an excellent cook. See page 52 for more options.
