Hedo Weedo, Jamaica’s cannabis dispensary in a Negril all-inclusive resort

Opened in 2020, Hedo Weedo is the first legal, regulated cannabis dispensary in Jamaica. It’s connected to Hedonism II, a clothing optional resort on 7 Mile beach. The dispensary offers local flower, topicals, edibles and tinctures and is open to the public. As many who visit Jamaica already do, you can take your vacation to a whole ‘nother level!

It has been less than 10 years since Jamaica decriminalized cannabis. Currently, it is legal to carry up to 2 oz. with you in public at any time. If you’re on the beaches, you’ll probably find the weed lady. She walks 7 Mile beach daily with a big wooden basket filled with long stems with buds running all the way down.

To access the dispensary, you’ll need to obtain a medical card. You can do this one of two ways. If you have a med card or recommendation from your home state, you can use it here. If not, all you have to do is bring your ID and see the on-site doctor. The cost of the card is $15, and you’re good to purchase for 9 months. You’ll be walking out with cannabis the same day.

Just curious? Bring your ID and you can browse and ask questions.

The dispensary also provides a consumption lounge. Consumption lounges are designed to provide their customers a safe place to toke up, meet other tourists and maybe even a local or two. Stately chairs and coffee tables adorn the lounge, welcoming you in. You can use their utensils, or bring your own.
