Video: Bud And Breakfast Becomes The Airbnb Of The Cannabis Industry
It’s quickly become known as the Airbnb for cannabis enthusiasts — the Bud and Breakfast listings for marijuana friendly lodgings in legal jurisdictions around the world.
Sean Roby, CEO of Bud and Breakfast, told Civilized in a video interview that the idea for the site struck him when he saw the growth in wine tourism in California, accompanied by the increased acceptance and presence of marijuana culture in the state.
“I was watching how much tourism was coming into Napa Valley, and also how much ganja was in the area. I thought, soon enough this is going to be akin to wine tourism. Cannabis tourism will be maybe even greater than wine tourism because it’s going to be everywhere.”
Roby says there are 500 listings, with more being added each day from global cannabis hotspots like Colorado, California and legal countries like Uruguay.
“Our site is geared toward the high-end traveller. The whole paradigm of the stoner, hippie thing, they’re not really perusing our site. And if they are they’re looking for the hostels. The majority of our traffic is high-end. Now we have the [Generation Xers] and the millennials. They want to have an authentic, local experience. They want to travel like the locals. They come to Boulder and they want to be right next to Pearl Street. They want to know where the dispensaries are. That’s the new paradigm in travel and that’s what we’re here to support.”
