Blaze the Oakland Cannabis Trail


Visit Oakland has recently launched the Oakland Cannabis Trail, a historical and colorful adventure with unique retail and cannabis-centric experiences for the cannasseur and canna-curious alike.

Developed in collaboration with cannabis travel enthusiasts and Oakland’s leading retailers, the Oakland Cannabis Trail offers a curated trip through the Town’s diverse, amazing neighborhoods.

The trail provides visitors a one-of-a-kind opportunity to immerse themselves in Oakland's history as they explore premium cannabis retail shops, an array of restaurants, local attractions, and sensory activities including hand-selected art exhibits and the great outdoors.

Featured on the trail are eight cannabis shops that represent the deeply rooted past and innovative future of cannabis in Oakland—from Harborside, which is one of the oldest, largest, and most respected cannabis retailers in the world, to Root'd in the 510, which opened on 4/20 in 2022. Honoring Oakland’s pioneering legacy, three destinations on the trail are cultural landmarks, including the Oaksterdam Uptown District and Blunts and Moore.

Oakland has a rich, significant history with safe cannabis access and has played a prominent role in legalization. The Town continues to be at the forefront of progress with some of the best shops and most compelling cannabis offerings in the state. The Cannabis Trail is a visitor's trusted guide to enjoying safe, curated cannabis experiences while spending time in Oakland.

Check out Visit Oakland’s two-day Cannabis Travel Guide and plan your DIY journey with the Cannabis Trail map, where you’ll also find detailed descriptions of dispensaries and retailers, list of activities and attractions, know-before-you-go tips, a glossary of terms, and the history of cannabis in Oakland.
