California’s Cannabis Trail

Discover the LGBTQ+ history of California’s Cannabis Trail

Explore California’s cannabis dispensaries, cannabis cafes and LGBTQ+ history

The Cannabis Trail will show you the wonders of California's cannabis culture and its unique queer history. From the vibrant streets of the Bay Area to the tranquil beauty of Humboldt County, The Cannabis Trail honors the intertwined narratives of cannabis, queer liberation and the Back to the Land movement. 

Fall in Northern California is a great time to travel, with the bounty of cannabis harvests and late summer-like weather. Our journey begins in the vibrant city of Oakland, which explodes with rainbow hues every September during its annual Pride celebrations. This event takes place on the second Sunday of September, featuring a lively parade, a colorful festival filled with music, food, local vendors, and various community events throughout the weekend.
