Where are the Secret Stoner Spots of San Francisco?

This comprehensive and fun Top 20 List will guide you through the four primary secret smoking sectors of the City, starting on the eastern edge of the Embarcadero, near the picturesque Ferry Building, majestic Bay Bridge, and the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium. Next, we head to the northern tip of the peninsula where secret stoner spots are interspersed near world-class tourist attractions such as Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Then we continue down to the western “beachy” zones of the City where sunny days meet predictable foggy evenings at secret spots along the coast. Finally, we conclude our tour with a complete excursion through San Francisco’s best-hidden inner city stoner spots where only long-time local stoners know their hidden treasures. Lastly, within each section, we have included a special “Secrets” section to truly immerse you into the hidden stories, cross connections, and stoner history that each secret spot reveals. It’s all part of the fun of being a Secret Stoner!

When we set out to create this guide, we wanted to ensure we wrote it from the marijuana lover’s perspective. It needed to be comprehensive, descriptive, and directional as other travel guides are, but it also needed to take into account special considerations specific to smoking marijuana in public: privacy, access to cannabis and fellow smokers, comfortable seating locations, best wind protection, neighborhood acceptance, underlying weed culture, and more. In addition, Secret Stoner Spots are also selected for their natural beauty, viewing points, proximity to landmarks, food, and attractions, as well as “wow factor” in showcasing the city and how that location enhances the marijuana smoking experience. 

Our intent with our first guide is to identify the best spots in San Francisco to enjoy weed and all of the incredible amenities this unique city is known for. We will first guide you to those zones, and then pinpoint those secret spots with the best views, most privacy, and highest neighborhood acceptance of marijuana smoking. In addition, we only pick those spots where you will have access to the most activities, choicest shopping, and best food options. And yes, we will tell you the best places where you will have the best chances to score weed. In other words, this book is an essential tool for all stoners to enjoy the best that San Francisco has to offer. Get your copy today!

Of course, to satisfy your eventual munchie urges, we have included a special section dedicated to San Francisco’s best gourmet food spots. In fact, we even pared it down to our Top 10 Best Munchie Spots in San Francisco, including proximity to secret stoner spots and a hint at what varied gourmet offerings await you in this world-renowned “foodie” town. As a marijuana enthusiast, you are going to love all of the choices in store, and we will make sure you have access to only the tastiest, succulent, and most stoner-satisfying fare available in the City. Especially assembled for our Secret Stoners, the included list of San Francisco Munchie Zones is tailored to getting the best food within easy access of our Top 20 secret smoking spots. We have selected these spots for their wide variety of delicious fare, including San Francisco staples such as sourdough bread, steamed crabs, and local craft brews, as well as international favorites such as Italian, Asian, and Japanese delicacies. Enjoy the unique and varied tastes of San Francisco, a world-class epicurean city unlike any other, and let this guide be your finger-licking ticket to flavor and fun!

Bong Appetit'!
