Now that many U.S. states and Washington D.C. legalized cannabis, weed is attracting many tourists to states where it is legal.
However, most state laws require you to use cannabis on private property only, leaving visitors with two options: Light up in a hotel and hope you don’t get caught, or rent a cannabis-friendly Airbnb for your next vacation.
Owners of Airbnbs that label themselves as “cannabis-friendly” are totally cool with you using cannabis on their property.
But how do you find these Airbnbs? And what ones are most popular?
We got the scoop on how to snag one of these 420-friendly stays, and what ones you might want to look at first.

How to Find 4/20-Friendly Airbnbs
First things first, how do you know if an Airbnb is 420-friendly?
The secret is in the search terms. Airbnb has no policy against the use and possession of marijuana on properties, as long as cannabis consumption is legal in the state in which the Airbnb exists (and the owners aren’t selling or gifting it on their property).

With that being said, Airbnb doesn’t make it very easy to find these properties. For example, there are no cannabis filters when choosing a property. Usually, hosts will write “cannabis-friendly” or something similar in either the title or the description of the listing.
The best course of action to find an Airbnb that allows cannabis use is to conduct a Google search of various terms along with the word “Airbnb” and your desired location.
Some popular search terms include:
- Smoking allowed
- Mary Jane
Keep in mind that every property has different requirements. You’re likely free to take edibles and vape in the home, but some Airbnbs may require you to smoke outside. Always reach out to the property owner if you’re ever unsure.
