November 25, 2021

Are you an avid Stoner or a bigtime pothead and are on the hunt for the most cannabis-friendly cities in the world? Do you want to know where you can visit as a stoner and still be able to find all of the products that you love and even try out new ones with all different experiences?

Cannabis legalization is sweeping the world as more and more countries are legalizing medical marijuana. This means that it is now easier than ever to access cannabis, even in some of the most conservative areas of the world where weed was once completely illegal. Cannabis products are becoming more and more popular today. These include beverages, beauty products, even pet treats! Different cannabis consumption devices are available as well, and you can choose all types of bongs, vapes, rigs, and much more in online head shops like Grasscity. As a result of these changes in legalization and availability, certain cities have become havens for weed smokers looking to enjoy their favorite herb without fear of persecution or arrest. Here we’ve compiled a list of some of those places and why they’re great for stoners around the globe. 


If you are looking to experience cannabis and cannabis-friendly cities at their peak, then Montevideo in Uruguay is definitely a place they could consider visiting. Although there are some heavy restrictions within the city it is still a great place for all of your stoner needs.

Uruguay was actually the first country in the entire world to legalize the use of cannabis for recreational purposes. Although cannabis consumption has been legal for a very long time now, they only started selling cannabis in 2017.

When in Montevideo you may struggle a bit to get your hands on any cannabis though as you need to register to be able to buy anything, and you have to buy it from a pharmacy. On top of that, you can only buy up to 10 grams a week although this is more than enough.


The next place that we have on our list is Vancouver, Canada. Although in the United States cannabis is still illegal in most places especially for recreational use, if you just hop across the border to Canada, you will find it legal in most places.

Here in Vancouver, you will find some of the most amazing cannabis products, experiences, head shops, and so much more. There are even cafes where you can smoke or buy different cannabis products. There are plenty of tourist attractions for cannabis while in Vancouver and as a stoner this is a dream come true. It is truly a hot spot for cannabis tourism.


By far the most cannabis-friendly city in the entire world is Amsterdam in the Netherlands. When people think of cannabis-friendly cities or smoking weed, this is the first place they think of. While other cities around the world have adopted similar cannabis cultures, Amsterdam was the first to open up coffee shops and have cannabis-friendly cafes right on their streets.

You have to be over the age of 18 to purchase weed in any of these coffee shops but one of the biggest perks is that you can buy up to 5 grams a day which is fantastic. Although while there you should hold off on smoking in the streets as this is generally frowned upon and also not legal.

Los Angeles

Last but not least we have the city of the stars, where fame is all around, Los Angeles, California. California is one of the states in the United States of America that has recently legalized cannabis for both recreational and medicinal use.

As a stoner in the United States, Los Angeles is definitely the place to be as products become more popular, head shops pop up more often, and new things make their way to the market.

While in California, Los Angeles in particular you will be able to find a dispensary or head shop exceptionally easy and you will no doubt be able to find exactly what you are looking for from the basics such as bongs, rolling papers, and filters to even more exceptional things such as pre-rolled joints extravagant glass pieces and pipes and so much more. If you are looking for a cannabis adventure this is by far the best place to go full
