When it finally gets warm enough to break to out the bathing suit or hike those extended trails, don’t ruin a great adventure by forgetting some important summer essentials to ensure spirits, and minds, remain high. Well-prepared cannabis enthusiasts have more time to enjoy sunshine and nature, and never struggle to locate the eye drops or lighter. To maximize the most out of every summer day, stock up on these 15 summer essentials every cannabis lover needs.
1. Nifty knapsack
First and foremost, a stylish and reliable bag to carry all the summer essentials is a must. There are a variety of cannabis-themed backpacks and satchels, so picking the perfect one of any personality should be a breeze.
2. Obviously, cannabis
This should be a no-brainer, but sometimes we get so concerned about packing all the other essentials, we forget the most important of them all. Make sure to have some high-quality cannabis available to enhance the easy living.
3. Lighter, and one or two backups
Lighters seem to disappear between every pass, so always make sure to have a few spares in the bottom of the knapsack. Nothing, I mean nothing, is worse than getting to an epic smoking location, only to discover there’s no lighter.
Summer is not the only time we cannabis lovers appreciate sunglasses. These are an all-year-round staple for most of us, trying to discretely conceal blood-shot eyes. Investing in a quality pair of sunglasses is a stylish way to stay under the radar.
5. Beach towel
Keeping a towel around is never a bad idea, especially during the summer months. Between unplanned swimming trips and unexpected rain storms, a heavy-duty towel can really come in handy for a variety of situations. It could even act as a secure wrapping for any delicate glass pieces.
6. Eye drops
Just like the sunglasses, eye drops are another essential not exclusive to summer. However, during the dry, hot summer months, red eyes can become even more irritated, so it might be a good idea to keep this reliable solution around.
7. Bathing suit
It wouldn’t be summer without a bathing suit. Luckily, as cannabis legalization continues to sweep the nation, there are now a variety of suits available for men and women to show support for the herb we all love.
8. Reliable pieces
Partaking on so many adventures is extremely exciting, but it can be nerve-racking to carry expensive glass from place to place. Consider rolling blunts or joints, to reduce the chances of dropping a treasured piece, or consider purchasing a silicon bong, like Roll-Uh-Bowl.
It might not be an everyday summer essential, but having a sweatshirt close by for those cooler, bonfire nights is important. Not only does it help to keep warm, it can also keep those pesky mosquitoes from biting arms. There are even hoodies that help wearers discretely smoke through the hoodie drawstring.
10. Mints and gum
Fresh breath is important, especially to those around you. Gum and mints are an essential for cannabis lovers because the tingly-fresh candies help to remove any lingering smoke smell left behind from the most recent blaze.
Dehydration is common during the hot summer months. The chances are increased for those of us who love to smoke and give ourselves cotton mouth. Be sure to keep a cool bottle of water around at all times to stave off any chance of drying up.
13. Portable grinder
Breaking up bud by hand poses so many challenges. There’s wind to contend with, sticky buds don’t properly breakdown by hand and, not to mention, the beautiful buds are being squished to death between fingers. A portable grinder is an essential item for all who truly appreciate the beauty of cannabis.
A hat is great way to quickly cover any damp, swimmers hair or a way to avoid styling hair at all. Brimmed hats do a great job at blocking the sun, too. Hats still act a fashion statement, able to display any number of cannabis related images.
15. Vape pen
With dabbing comes a lot of extra tools and equipment, like rigs, torches, dabbers and carb caps. Carrying all these items would be extremely tiresome, so cut out the extras and simply bring along a sleek, lightweight vape pen. It’s must more discrete, anyway.
