If you're looking to combine the great outdoors with a little herbal relaxation, camping can be an excellent choice. To ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience, here's the ultimate stoner guide to camping and getting high in the wild:
Choose a 420-Friendly Campsite: Start by selecting a campsite that is friendly towards cannabis use. Research your site ahead of time to ensure you are camping in an area where marijuana is legal or tolerated. Look for campgrounds that mention a relaxed attitude towards cannabis or offer private and secluded spots.
Pick-Up Ahead of Time:
Come down to The Peace Pipe and get all of your flower, pre-rolls, and other goodies ahead of schedule to ensure you’re stocked up before you set out on your adventure. Our budtenders would love to set you up with the perfect OZ for the trip.
Pack the Essentials:
In addition to making sure you have all of the neccessary camping gear, pack your cannabis essentials, including rolling papers, a grinder, lighters, and any preferred smoking devices. If you don’t already have a travel kit together check out our Santa Cruz Revelry Travel Kits for the perfect on-the-go bag. Toker-pokers can come in handy as a tool and will make it less likely to lose your lighter. If you plan on bringing a bong we highly suggest picking up one of our acrylic or silicone options to avoid any casualties during your stay. Using our Randy’s Resin Guard will also allow you to use your bong for a few days without having to change the water which is ideal when running water is hard to come by.
Be Discreet: Even if cannabis is legal, it's important to be respectful of other campers who may not be as accepting. You don’t want anyone harshing your vibe anyway, right? Keep your smoking activities discreet by finding secluded spots away from crowded areas. Use smelly-proof bags or tight-vac containers to store your stash and smoking accessories. To minimize the smell and be more discreet, consider consuming cannabis through edibles, beverages or vaporizers. Our new OG Jerk - Classic Original Beef Jerky, the perfect snack for a hike, or how about our Back Forty - S’Mores Chocolate for around the fire? With the new innovations in infusion we have so many treats to try out.
Respect Nature: While you’re respecting your fellow campers it's also crucial to respect the environment you’re enjoying. Avoid littering, and properly dispose of any cannabis-related waste, such as roaches or packaging. Leave nature as you found it and be mindful of the impact you have on the surrounding ecosystem.
Stay Safe: While cannabis can enhance your camping experience, it's essential to prioritize safety. Don't consume excessively, especially if you're in an unfamiliar environment. Stay hydrated, be aware of your surroundings, and avoid engaging in any high-risk activities while under the influence.
Enjoy the Outdoors: Remember that camping is about immersing yourself in nature. Take time to appreciate the beauty around you, go for hikes, explore the wilderness, and connect with the natural world. Cannabis can enhance the experience, but don't let it overshadow the main reason you're camping in the first place.
Plan for Munchies: Cannabis is notorious for inducing the munchies, so make sure to pack plenty of snacks and food options to satisfy your cravings. Consider healthy and nutritious choices to keep your energy levels up during your outdoor adventures.
Camping Activities: Engage in activities that complement your cannabis experience. Play board games, listen to music, stargaze, tell stories around the campfire, or simply relax and enjoy the tranquility of nature. Camping provides an excellent opportunity to unwind and appreciate the effects of cannabis in a natural setting.
