With summer around the corner, everyone’s itching to get outside. And what’s the best way to enhance any outdoor experience? With cannabis, of course! Whether you’re hiking, camping, or just going on a trip to the park in California, marijuana can make it more enjoyable. That’s why we’re taking a bit of a different approach with this strain review. Instead of focusing on a single strain, we’re going to look at some of the best outdoor weed strains of 2022!
Best Outdoor Weed Strains of 2022 at Green Goddess Collective
We realize there’s no “one size fits all” strain when it comes to outdoor adventures. Everyone experiences the outdoors in their own way, so they need a strain that fits them. Let’s dig in!
Being Active: Best Strain for Hiking
Finding the right day hike in some places can be a difficult task in and of itself. You need to track down a place that’s close enough to get to in a day, but far enough away to avoid crowds. After all, the point of getting outdoors is often to get away from city vibes.
You don’t want to spend time agonizing over the right strain on top of finding a good hike. What’s more, when you’re hiking, you need to be able to keep your sense of direction. That means you don’t want to be totally knocked out by some super-powerful Indica. Instead, you want a nice, balanced hybrid to help you on your journey.
That’s why we added Apples & Bananas by Blaze Mota to this strain review. It’s a fairly balanced hybrid with both energizing and relaxing traits. That means it’s a great option for your average day hike. Add in this strain’s incredible flavor and aroma, and you just might make some friends on the trail.
Exploring: Best Strain for Backpacking
If you’re looking for a true outdoor adventure, it’s hard to beat backpacking. There’s no shortage of backpacking trails on the West Coast thanks to the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). The entire trail system runs from Canada to Mexico, but you don’t need to do the whole thing. Just spend a night or two on the trail to get a breath of the great outdoors.
One thing about backpacking is that it does take a pretty significant amount of energy. As a result, you’re going to want to stick with an electric, energizing Sativa strain. And we picked just the perfect one.
Charge 519 by Canndescent will help you keep your legs moving and your mind sharp while you navigate to your campsite. As a heavy sativa, it provides that jolt of power you need to keep hauling that heavy backpack. However, it’s not overwhelming—Charge 519 will still keep your mind calm and muscles relaxed while you chug onwards.
Chilling Out: Best Strain for Car Camping in California
Sometimes, you want to experience the outdoors without having to walk miles and miles to get there. And that’s one of the perks of car camping. You can pick a spot on the map, pack up your vehicle, and head into the woods. Just make sure your car can handle the trip. The last thing you want is to blow out a tire on a remote county road without any cell service.
When it comes to car camping, the best time to toke is after you’ve cooked dinner and you’re relaxing around a warm campfire. At that point, you’re going to want a nice, relaxing strain to tuck you into your waiting sleeping bag.
And Gelato Ice Cream by Blaqstar is perfect for that! With indica-leaning genetics and a high THC content (about 25%), Gelato Ice Cream is the ideal choice for relaxing and passing a bowl or joint around the fire. Your friends will definitely appreciate you for bringing it. If you’re camping alone, it’s a great way to make friends with your neighbors!
