Visitors’ Guide to Seattle Cannabis Tourism
Seattle Washington has an excellent cannabis tourism scene. It may be because the city has one of the nation’s most bustling cannabis markets, with nearly 20% of the adult population enjoying cannabis products.
In fact, Seattle is one of the few cities where cannabis consumption is more common than nicotine consumption. If you’re a cannabis lover who’s planning to visit the Emerald City, or if you already call this area home, there are three Seattle cannabis tours in particular that are especially popular.
The 3 Best Seattle Cannabis Tours
The best-known cannabis tours in Seattle are Herban Adventure, Seattle Green Adventures, and the Original Cannabus tour. Keep in mind that tours have limited space available, so you should always book in advance. Some tours also run seasonally rather than year-round.
Herban Adventure (Formerly Kush Tours)
Meets At: 400 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101
Duration: 2.5 hours
The famed Seattle Kush Tour is now Herban Adventure, the city’s premier interactive experience for the cannabis consumer. The tour has a convenient pickup and drop-off location at Westlake Center, just a few blocks from Pike Place Market.
This immersive kush tourism experience includes a complete tour of a cannabis garden, a live glimpse into the creation of concentrates and extracts, and a visit to one of the area’s top cannabis dispensaries. It’s a complete seed-to-sale journey that shows you exactly how cannabis is grown, processed, packaged, and sold in the Seattle area.
Private tours are available for an additional cost with pickup and drop-off at any hotel in Greater Seattle. The private tours are perfect for anyone curious about entering the lucrative cannabis industry, as you’re provided with a customized itinerary that breaks down the business on more of a micro level and exposes you to even more exciting green activities and attractions.
For those traveling to Seattle from out of town, Herban Adventure also offers vacation packages that include 420-friendly lodging and access to personally curated excursions that are perfect for any cannabis enthusiast.
Note that Herban Adventure tours only run from April through October.
Seattle Green Adventures
Meets At: Any location within a 15-mile radius of downtown Seattle (airport pickup is also available)
Duration: 4 hours
Cost: $149 per adult for 2 adults; $119 per adult for 4 adults; $99 per adult for 6 adults; $89 per adult for 8 adults
If cannabis luxury tours are your thing, Seattle Green Adventures is the way to go. You get picked up in a 10-passenger limousine with comfy seating and posh accommodations. You’re then escorted in style to a series of unique and unforgettable cannabis facilities.
The specific stops vary from day to day but include multiple high-end cannabis stores, cannabis farms, and glass-blowing studios. Premium tours may include edibles cooking classes, cannabis and wine dinners, and visits to a wide range of Seattle’s most iconic landmarks. Landmark options include the famed Seattle Waterfront, Seattle Center, the Great Wheel, Pioneer Square, Chihuly’s Glass Art Museum, and the Jimi Hendrix Memorial.
Every tour includes a VIP experience at the local dispensaries, but the premium tour takes the experience even further with a your own personalized itinerary and private tour guide and chauffeur. These customizable tours are perfect for serious cannabis tourists.
The Original Cannabus
Meets At: 1302 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98101
Duration: 2 hours
Cost: $75 per person
Cannabis bus tours have become big business, but there’s only one Original Cannabus. This shorter tour takes guests to Seattle’s first licensed recreational marijuana facility along with another high-end dispensary.
Enjoy a scenic trip through beautiful downtown Seattle, and learn all about the city’s role in helping to establish Washington state as one of the nation’s most successful and popular adult-use cannabis hotspots.
The Cannabus tour only departs once each day, and only on weekdays. If you’d like to take this cannabis journey for yourself, be sure to plan accordingly and book your tour at least 24 hours in advance.
What to Know When Booking a Seattle Cannabis Tour
A Seattle cannabis tour is an excellent opportunity to explore the best bud that the city has to offer while also learning all about this fast-growing industry and immersing yourself in the city’s cannabis culture. If you’re thinking of booking a tour, just keep the following in mind:
Seattle marijuana tours are only open to guests 21 years old and older.
Some tours require multiple guests (no single riders) or will offer you their best rates to larger groups. So gather up as many friends as possible when planning your excursion.
If you can afford to pay a bit more, a private tour is the way to go. You’ll usually enjoy a more personalized tour of the local cannabis scene, with more freedom to explore unique facilities at your own pace.
Make sure to book ahead and ask about the specific itinerary for the day you plan to go. Most tours have different stops on different days, so if you have your heart set on seeing a glass-blowing facility or extraction lab, you’ll need to book on the right day.
You can also organize your own cannabis city tours. Start by mapping out all of the places that you want to see in the Seattle area (both cannabis-related and non-cannabis-related). You can enjoy cannabis shopping at some of the nation’s top dispensaries (like Higher Leaf, a top-rated recreational cannabis dispensary in Bellevue and Kirkland), and try all of the best high-quality cannabis products. Then make your way to iconic Seattle landmarks like the Space Needle, Museum of Pop Culture, Pike Place Market, and the Washington Park Arboretum.
