With most establishments closed or at partial capacity and word that camping may save the economy, you can bet there are many people looking for an outdoor adventure. And that’s why we want to share the best strains for camping along with our favorite cannabis products to take on the road.
The camping boom is happening with good reason. If you can find a safe place to camp, away from others, you are not only having a fun time in a safe manner, but you’re also contributing to the economy. That is, assuming you have made reservations and are making use of campgrounds or cabins.
And if you’re planning a camping trip, we recommend you make a reservation early. Like, as early as possible. Recreation.gov offers an interactive map to look at what’s available and when, and you’ll notice that popular camping sites are booked out weeks in advance.
We’ve discussed hidden parks, beaches, and rivers across Washington and have no doubt a determined camper will find a place to have a great time. We also have no doubt that some quality cannabis will enhance the trip even more.
Keep in mind that public consumption of marijuana is illegal. Use your best judgment. There are plenty of 420-friendly campsites available on Airbnb and other sites, just be sure to read through the rules before booking a stay somewhere.
The best Cannabis strains for camping
What’s better than smoking a joint around the campfire? One of the best parts of camping is just getting to relax and spend quality time with friends and family. A good strain can make the moment even more special.
For an occasion like camping, we recommend hybrid strains. Sativas are great for daytime use, and we especially love them for boosting focus or giving us a burst of energy. Indicas, on the other hand, are great for evening use and to help melt into relaxation or even sleep. Hybrids are a great blend of the two. A well-balanced hybrid should help you relax without sending you into sleep.
Cake Mix by Lemonnade
This tasty strain has a vanilla aroma paired with the sweetness of wedding cake. Its silky, creamy frosting flavor enhances the sweet experience of smoking Cake Mix. The nugs are covered in frosty trichomes that promise an intense high.
You’ll notice a heady high with this one, followed by an overall body-high experience. You can zone out in front of the campfire or even go on a beautiful nature walk as long as you get up before the deep relaxation hits. This strain is great for midday use as you explore your environment as well as evening use for extra relaxation.

Narnia by Soulshine Cannabis
This heavy-hitting sweet smelling strain is a wonderful choice to take camping. It has a bright and fruity flavor that pairs nicely with its earthy undertones.
Be prepared to be met with the skunky force as soon as you take a hit. This strain is known to come on strong and slowly fade into a relaxing bliss, but if you’re not prepared for the initial impact, you may be prone to a little anxiety or stress as you adjust to the high.
Overall, Narnia is both energizing and relaxing, thanks to its balanced terpene profile. With a cross of Trainwreck and Jack Herer, Narnia is a unique sativa strain. If you want something that will relax your body and mind without weighing it down and putting you to sleep, Narnia is a wonderful option.

Dutch Treat by Western Bud
Fruity and sweet with hints of pine and eucalyptus, Dutch Treat is a favorite strain for many. It’s perfect for camping because it’s both uplifting and relaxing which can contribute to a fun experience.
This hybrid strain hits the user hard and fast. You’ll feel its euphoric effects almost immediately as you feel uplifted and maybe even giggly. While you’ll feel uplifted and euphoric, you’ll also notice a decrease in stress and an overall relaxed feeling in your body.
If you want a hard-hitting strain that will leave you feeling hazy and happy, Dutch Treat is for you. Let your whole body sink into relaxation without getting too sedated on your next camping trip!

Best cannabis products for camping
There are many ways to bring cannabis on your camping trip. Incorporating it in your meals and snacks is a great way to stay elevated all the time. Here are some of our favorites:
Tea’d Up Peach Black Tea by Evergreen Herbal
If you want the perfect summer drink paired with a sip of nostalgia, this infused peach black tea is for you. It’s sweetened with cane sugar and has everything you’d want from an iced tea, and then some!
This drink comes with a dosing ladder, as well as a resealable cap. You can measure out how much you drink throughout the day for an optimal experience. However, we think it’s pretty hard to put this drink down once you’ve had a sip. Go slow, though! With bottles filled with 100 mg of THC, you are sure to get a heavy buzz from this beverage.

Variety Delights Fruit Chews by Odd Duck
