20 psychedelic things to do around Vancouver while you're baked

Aug 20 2021, 1:58 pm

Between the various art galleries, entertainment options, and places that show off the city’s natural beauty, Vancouver is a great place to get high and explore.

It’s only fitting that there be a guide of all the cool things to do after consuming cannabis

If it’s munchies you’re after, we’ve got you covered there too.

Alright, alright, alright. Here’s the list.

Remember, while consuming cannabis is legal, it’s illegal and unwise to drive while under the influence, so ideally you’ll be getting to your destination by transit, on foot, or with a designated driver.

So pass the dutchie on the left-hand side, and don’t forget the eye drops or the shades. And don’t forget to keep your roaches or dispose of them properly.

The Vancouver Art Gallery

The VAG; this one wouldn’t be complete without it.

There’s something about the combination of art and marijuana. Whether it’s the fact that many artists consume it, the tendency for cannabis to help those creative juices flow, or that it can make you feel more introspective, getting baked and visiting the art gallery is a good idea.

Where: 750 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Hours:  Saturday – Monday, Wednesday – Thursday, 10 am – 5 pm; Tuesday and Friday, 12 – 8 pm

Be a tourist at home with Forbidden Vancouver

If you do this stoned, you might actually think you’ve travelled back in time.

Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix has a pretty prominent connection to Vancouver. While he didn’t live in the city, his grandmother, Nora Hendrix, did. That resulted in the iconic musician spending a fair bit of time in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest.

The shrine features art, guitars, and psychedelic vibes that are perfect after a blaze.

Then, go back to your pad, put on your “Are You Experienced?” vinyl, and just chill out man.

Where: 209 Union Street, Vancouver

Ninja Tag

You don’t always need to do something to enjoy cannabis.

You can just go to a park and chill. Specifically Dude Chilling Park.

Formerly Guelph Park, residents in the area renamed the park, and through a petition made it official.
