Portland, Oregon is a mecca for cannabis lovers everywhere. One of the first places to legalize and decriminalize the magic herb, it was the home of the first cannabis cafe to open in the US (RIP World Famous Cannabis Cafe) and houses the country’s first CBD cafe, too.
Unlike our friends in Canada who nearly ran out of weed on day one, Oregon is so rife with growers that the state has more cannabis than people can consume. This happy accident means having access to a wide range of products at low prices, making Portland the place to be for all things green.
