Wanna see some ganja fields in Jamaica? Would you like to take a ganja tour in Negril and a trip over to Orange Hill or Cave Mountain for some sweet Jamaican weed and maybe a cup of ganja tea to wash your ganja cake down with? We might have heard about some ganja tours in Jamaica that would interest a ganja fan or marijuana connoisseur like you. Trick is that we do not offer ganja tours to cops, feds, police or anyone with a badge, a baton or a gun or anyone that will not smoke Jamaican herbs with us before the tour.
So, if you want a ganja tour in Jamaica you will have to come to Jamaica and smoke a big fat bob marley joint with us before we’ll take you anywhere. After you smoke a spliff with us and we get to know you then we will take you on the best ganja tours in Jamaica and you’ll smoke (and eat if you want) so much ganja you’ll be talking to Bob Marley himself.
Marijuana is illegal in Jamaica no matter how hard it is to avoid all over the island. It seems like literally every other person has some “high grade” to offer or a “bob marley spliff” for you to burn. Of course it will cost you but that’s between you the hustler and Bob. Nothing is free and even something as simple as a person offering to smoke with you will come at a hefty charge if you don’t know what you’re doing in Jamaica. It’s better to ask first and always settle on a price before you do anything.
Marijuana is still cultivated in Jamaica by small time farmers amongst other crops usually such as pumpkins or Jamaican squash. The pot plants grow in short single stem plants call “one sticks” that are normally between 12 and 24 inches in length when harvested. The days of huge pot plants and large plantations are long gone. Governmental controls and American drug money have broken up the large growers and made it so that an army of small farmers now does what a few used to control.
The idea that one ganja farmer has better marijuana than an other is not new but the real difference here in Jamaica is in the cure. Many ganja farmers in Jamaica are not allowing the plants to fully mature and the seeds to drop. Many are plucking the plants early in attempts to offer sinsemilla or seedless pot. The trouble here of course is that the THC is not quite mature at this stage of development and the plants potency suffers from a premature harvest.
If you’re looking for ganja in Jamaica then you can most likely look no further than you’re hotel lobby or taxi driver for someone with some ganja for sale. A good size spliff is about $100JA, jamaican dollars, or about $2 US but that’s for those of us that know. Most hustlers will try to hit a tourist hard and ask for $500JA or more for the same amount. Tell him its all good, tell him you know a grower in Orange Hill with some nice high grade but you are always looking for something new. Tell him “me know wa gwan here mon” and “me jus lookin for a likkle sumting difrent” and you might get a better deal.
Be wary of purported pot tours to ganja farms in Negril Jamaica as you might just find yourself in one surrounded by not only some pretty pot plants but the local police force as well. Jamaican Ganja farmers have been known to turn in competitors after dragging some unsuspecting fool to be held by the cops until they can “work something out between them” and negotiate a cash settlement on the spot. This usually means you have to give up everything you have on you and you may even have to run to the ATM to withdraw as much cash as you can for the day. All of this of course is to make it better for you and to save you from the nasty Jamaican jail system.
So like we said. Be careful who you ask about a ganja tour in Jamaica. You never know who you can trust mon

Tour of the Marijuana Garden outside the Peter Tosh Mausoleum in Belmont Jamaica where the Tosh family keeps a small patch of marijuana in honor of the reggae legend. It was his stance on marijuana legalization that got Peter Tosh killed and it’s kinda cool to see the herb garden nearby his grave.Tags: ganja tours, jamaica ganja, negril ganja, negril ganja tours
