Luxury leader Lord Jones became the first cannabis company to form an official partnership with a hotel chain when announcing in 2018 that The Standard would soon stock its line of gumdrops in minibars and lobby boutiques from Los Angeles to New York.
Adult-use cannabis is now legal in 11 states and the District of Columbia, and since Standard Hotels set a groundbreaking precedent, the travel industry is following suit with more cannabis-friendly offerings than ever before.
Of course, there are still challenges when it comes to consumption in common areas or in the privacy of your own room’s balcony (like with cigarettes, there are still hefty fines for smoking cannabis inside). But while cities try to navigate implementing social use regulations, hotels in legal states are known to turn a blind eye to lighting up outside, vaporizing or ingesting edibles—especially those that are now serving up CBD or selling cannabis paraphernalia on-property. Plus, TSA recently stated, “Products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil or are FDA-approved are generally legal & can fly.”
From picking up a PAX vaporizer poolside at the Dream Hollywood to getting a CBD foot massage at The Standard Spa in Miami, here are the best high-minded hotels to check into on your summer vacation.
The Standard Spa
Treat your feet to the Royal Chill Treatment ($175), a one-hour massage featuring refreshing foot bath and cooling scrub, followed by a grounding foot massage. Using Lord Jones’ best-selling High CBD Pain & Wellness Formula and a variety of techniques, including balancing reflexology points, say goodbye to aches and pains so you can put your stilettos back on for another night out in the Magic City. Hotel guests can also find Lord Jones’ Blood Orange CBD Gumdrops (an exclusive flavor created in partnership with The Standard) in the spa boutique and minibars in-room along with smoke-friendly accoutrements in the gift shop like Stonedware Company ceramic pipes, rolling papers, lighters and stash jars. standardhotels.com
Los Angeles, California
PAX Labs, makers of sleek and smart vaporizers, as part of its ongoing initiative with the Dream Hollywood, has devices available for purchase at the hotel in-room and on the rooftop pool patio, The Highlight Room. While the Dream Hollywood doesn’t offer guests cannabis flower or Era pods compatible with PAX on-site, delivery direct to your chaise lounge chair is as easy as a swipe on your iPhone through statewide online ordering service, Eaze. dreamhotels.com
