Since California has legalised recreational marijuana use, tourists have been interested in cannabis farm tourism! Now, a major Californian tour company is offering tours to weed farms and hopes to make the activity as popular as wine farm tours!
CANNABIS TOURISM IN CALIFORNIA
Gray Line San Francisco just became the first of the major sightseeing tour companies to dive into Northern California’s growing cannabis tourism industry. It is partnering with one of the country’s first cannabis farm tour companies, Mendocino Experience. This boutique tour company has been taking tourists and locals on wine tour style visits to cannabis farms in California’s Emerald Triangle. It launched immediately after cannabis first became regulated for adult use in California in 2018. In seeking to normalise marijuana for everyone, and following the precedent set by the wine tourism industry in neighbouring Napa and Sonoma, guests can come to learn more about the business and culture of legacy grown world-class cannabis in Mendocino County.
Throughout the entire 2022 tour season, lasting April through October, Gray Line and Mendocino Experience have partnered to operate regular 25 passenger bus tours from San Francisco to Mendocino County launching with a special Weed and Wine tasting tour planned on 20 April 2022.
Xavier Valls, CEO of Gray Line San Francisco said:
“We are always looking for different and unique experiences to offer to our customers. Our ambition at Gray Line San Francisco is to become a one-stop-shop for any tourist that visits Northern California, and based on this vision, we felt that offering a tour that covers the history of the Emerald Triangle, the cannabis industry, and a wine tasting was something no one was offering yet. We’re grateful to be able to partner with Mendocino Experience for this experience!”
