Are you planning a hiking trip? There’s something about getting away from the stresses of everyday life, disconnecting from technology, and reconnecting with nature and your travel companions. The thought of getting back to nature is enough to fill you with a sense of peace.
With camping, preparation is critical. You want to make sure you’ve packed all of your essential supplies. Once you’ve got the necessities, there’s one more item for you to pack—a great cannabis strain.
While many strains of cannabis are known to make users sleepy and “couch-locked,” there are others that help you relax just enough to contemplate life or connect with nature. Some of the best strains for camping can offer a boost of energy perfect for daytime camping activities.
If you’re wondering what type of recreational cannabis you might want to pack, here are five of the best strains for camping.
Chronic is a Sativa-dominant hybrid of three separate strains—Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and AK-47. It’s a fairly balanced hybrid that produces uplifting and energizing effects early on. It’s a great option if you’re hanging around the campsite later in the day, perhaps sitting by the campfire and roasting marshmallows. The initial high eventually transforms into one of relaxation, perfect for unwinding with friends.
2. Durban Cresco
The Cresco Labs phenotype of the pure Sativa Durban Poison is an uplifting, energizing strain. It’s perfect for daytime use, increasing your productivity and stimulating your mind. If you have a hike planned, Durban Cresco could be a good strain to use before you head off. An increase in your alertness could have you noticing things along the trail you might otherwise miss.
3. Lucinda Williams
A cross between Cinderella 99 and Williams Wonder, Lucinda Williams is an interesting hybrid. After a quick initial euphoria, the strain provides a relaxing high that’s perfect for unwinding at the end of your day. It can help to soothe sore muscles from a long day of exploration, helping you to fall into a comfortable sleep.
4. Triangle Kush
An Indica-dominant hybrid, Triangle Kush is another excellent strain for sparking deep conversations by the fire while you’re unwinding from a day filled with activities. If you’re camping on your own, it can also spark internal contemplation of the world around you. While it can make you feel a little dizzy, it can also help to bring out your inner artist.
Also known as King Tut, Tutankhamun is a Sativa-dominant hybrid of AK-47. It uplifts the mind and stimulates your creativity. You’ll feel energized, focused, and inspired, so don’t take this one too late in the day unless you’re looking to stay up a bit later.
