CBD hotels are becoming more and more popular for travelers in the United States who want to be able to relax and indulge in ways other than through alcohol. When searching for CBD hotels, it’s a good idea to specify the city of interest and to add the word “cannabis” as sometimes CBD can have alternate meanings.

Guests Smoking Anywhere?

Smoking policies in hotels in general, whether CBD or tobacco or otherwise can vary widely depending on the hotel’s specific rules and local regulations. In many places, there has been a global trend toward stricter smoking regulations, which often include restrictions on smoking in indoor public spaces, including hotel rooms.

To get information about smoking policies in a specific CBD hotel, contact the hotel directly or check its official website. It should be able to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding smoking policies, including any designated smoking areas that may be available.

Bear in mind that smoking policies can change over time due to evolving regulations and hotel policies, so it’s always a good idea to verify the information directly with the hotel before making any plans.

CBD in Every US State?

CBD (cannabidiol) legality can vary by state within the United States, and CBD laws are constantly changing. So especially when traveling and staying in a hotel or even at a private vacation rental, it’s important to verify the current regulations in that specific state. Here is a general overview of CBD legality in the US based on a recent update:

Fully Legal States: In these states, both medical and recreational use of cannabis and CBD derived from cannabis are legal:  Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington.

Medical Use States: These states have legalized medical use of CBD and cannabis derivatives:  Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, West Virginia.

Limited Medical Use States: These states have laws allowing only the use of low-THC, high-CBD products for specific medical conditions:  Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

CBD-Specific Laws: These states have specific laws allowing for the medical use of CBD with varying levels of THC content:  Idaho, Nebraska.

States with Restrictive Laws: Some states have restrictive laws around CBD or cannabis use, so it’s important to understand local regulations. These states may allow CBD use under specific circumstances or have unclear laws:  South Dakota, Idaho, and Nebraska.

Federal Legal Status: On a federal level, CBD derived from hemp containing less than 0.3% THC was legalized with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. This means that in most states, CBD extracted from hemp with low THC content is considered legal, but states can have their own regulations.

Keep in mind that CBD laws are subject to change, and this information might not reflect the most current state of affairs. Always verify the current laws and regulations in the specific state of interest before purchasing or using CBD products.
