There’s nothing like heading out into nature with a joint in hand and a bunch of friends by your side. Try something different this time and organize a cannabis picnic complete with your favorite dishes and strains. Read on for a few tips to make your next cannabis picnic extra special.

Essentials for a Cannabis Picnic

Pick the perfect cannabis strain

Whether you decide to consume cannabis edibles or opt for your go-to dry herb, pick a fun and uplifting daytime strain or you may find everyone slowly melting into the blanket. If you plan on playing music at your picnic, Green Crack and Sour Diesel will have you energized and rocking to the beats. For an uplifting and euphoric feel that will help fight fatigue, Durban Poison is considered the espresso of cannabis and will keep everyone wide eyed and energized.

Don’t forget the food!

There’s no such thing as a cannabis picnic if it doesn’t include food (those munchies hit hard y'all). When choosing the right snacks, pick dishes that are easy to transport, don’t require much preparation, and will be fine if left out of a cooler for some time. Munchie snacks like chips and dip, cookies, brownies, fruit salad, chicken wings, sandwiches, wraps, olives, cheese, and charcuterie boards are all great ideas. You can also elevate your picnic with a few weed edible dishes or drinks, but be sure to label them clearly!

Choose the right spot

The location you choose could make or break the entire experience. Local rules, common courtesy, and some knowledge of the kind of people who frequent the area goes a long way. Steer clear of anywhere with playgrounds or children and understand that not everyone is fine with cannabis smoking. In most legal states, including California and Oregon, it is still against the law to smoke weed in public including at the beach and parks. Despite the rules, most people do not care if you light up as long as you’re using common sense. Also be wary of using open flames in dry areas with a fire hazard. In these situations, bring along a vape pen, e-rig, or dry herb vaporizer that does not have an exposed flame.

The Champion Crossbody Bag

Every stoner who enjoys lighting up on the go needs a Champion Crossbody Bag by Revelry. Designed for the modern pothead, these smell-proof bags are built with three layers, a soft inner twill lining, an activated charcoal carbon filter to eliminate odors, and a rubber backed exterior fabric that is water resistant and keeps smells contained. At 8.5” x 5” x 2.5”, this smell-proof bag is large enough to carry your pipe, rolling papers, lighter, ganja, and even your wallet and phone without being overly bulky. 

Juicy Jays Flavored Rolling Papers

Add some flavor to your next cannabis picnic with a pack or two of Juicy Jays Flavored Rolling Papers. Available in pineapple, watermelon, cotton candy, coconut, marshmallow, orange, and strawberry flavors, these superfine rolling papers give your ganja a whole new taste. There’s nothing like the complexity of high quality dry herb, but flavored rolling papers are super fun to try.

Kandypens KVape Pro

If vaping is more your style, give the Kandypens KVape Pro a try. Vape pens are ultra portable, making them great for smoking out in nature or at your next cannabis picnic. This dry herb vaporizer is one of the most affordable in the category and boasts a powerful 1200mAh battery that will last well past desert. All internal components are kept safe inside a durable anodized aluminum shell, so you don’t have to worry about throwing it into your backpack or accidental drops.

V-Syndicate Grinder Card

Hate grinding on the go and getting your fingers sticky? The lightweight V-Syndicate Grinder Card fits right into your wallet or purse and makes grinding your flower a breeze. Just scrape the bud against the non-stick surface and you’ll have a smooth, even burn. Remember to put your grinder card back into the pouch after you use it or your wallet will start smelling dank.

Genius High Expectations Pipe

Designed specifically for travel, there’s no doubt that this stylish metal pipe will exceed all expectations. Unlike your normal glass smoking pipe that burns with every inhale, the Genius High Expectations Pipe uses a patented vortex cooling technology originally designed for cooling off nuclear reactors. The best part is that after the cannabis picnic is over and you empty the bowl, simply slide the cover over the bowl to keep all remaining ash and odors contained inside the pipe before throwing it into your bag or center console.
