Strains Sense: 10 Cannabis Strains To Elevate Your Next Camping Trip

A little cannabis may be just what it takes to take a day of camping to another level.

Cannabis goes well with many outdoor activities, and camping is no exception. Camping with good friends and a little weed can elevate the experience to higher levels.

Whether you’re a hiker looking to rack up the miles and need to be in the right mood, or if you’re more of a campfire stargazer in a more reflective mode, there’s a strain for every camping need.


A few extra recommendations never hurt. Every nature lover knows this, but just in case, don’t take flammable or polluting elements camping with you; instead, opt for vaporizing, consuming cannabis oil, or bringing a homemade cannabis edible. You will still get the effects without putting the environment around you at risk.

At Herb, we have a comprehensive guide to camping with cannabis, which you should definitely check out before embarking on any outdoor adventure.
