7 Reasons to smoke weed while hiking
1. The intensified sounds of nature
After smoking weed (or consuming edibles) you’ll really start to notice and appreciate the sounds of birds chirping, critters skittering, and tree leaves blowing in the wind. It makes you one with nature, giving you the feeling of the invigorating departure from normal city life. Whether you buy weed online, eat some edibles, or consume other forms of marijuana on your hike, you can rest assure you will take in nature to its fullest.
2. Nature & Weed is a peaceful combination
Nothing really matters when you are trekking up a mountain, down a ravine or circling a loop while smoking some high-quality BC bud. Your mind can wonder, with uplifting thoughts from smoking the sour diesel or the mellow, relaxed state you feel from puffing on a dank strain of indica, without anyone disturbing you. The world appears to halt, where your next footprint and joint is the only thing that matters.
3. It is a great (and mindless) workout
Sweat is coming down your face, your heart is pumping, and your pace of breathing is increased…and yet you don’t realize it at all thanks to your weed high. All you notice is the beautiful fresh air, spectacular views, refreshing sips of water, and how good your trail mix is when you decide to eat it.
4. You can enjoy it alone or in a group
Going alone has many benefits – finding inner peace on a mountain, going at your own pace, smoking weed without worrying about how others feel about it – its freedom at its finest. Getting high and going with friends can be just as fun, if not better. There’s the laughter, the Instagram photos, sharing different strains with one another, and so much more. Also, if you’re trying to hide the fact that you’re smoking weed, you can always buy shatter online and bring your trusty, discrete vape pen along.
5. You’re not on the couch all day
Jumping from rock to rock or skipping through the trails will give your day a much more adventurous, energetic feeling than sitting on the couch all day. Not to say that a day of smoking cannabis on the couch doesn’t have its perks, but after a day of hiking and smoking weed the couch will feel that much better.
6. The breathtaking beauty of your surroundings.
Whether you are at the summit or the bottom of the valley, you’ll find some of the prettiest sites in the world while toking on your joint. Beautiful sights along the hike can be just as good as well. Don’t forget to stop and take in the views along the hike as you go, or sit down to roll your next doob (or you can use mail order marijuana and have your pre-rolled joints ready to go).
7. The munchies at the end
Smoking weed and hiking combine for some of the tastiest (and most deserved) munchies you can get. Bring fruit, trail mix, chocolate, beef jerky, or any other food you desire and we promise that you won’t be able to put it down. Just don’t mix up the chocolate with the Ganja Milk Chocolate or you’re hike might take a little longer than you expected.
