Cannabis Outdoors

Smoking outdoors can be refreshing and relaxing. Being surrounded by trees and bugs will ground just about anyone. Although you may indulge in all the benefits of cannabis, not all hikers share the same enthusiasm. Here are a few things to keep in mind while smoking outdoors.

DO NOT smoke near children. This is simple if you seem them don’t be blowing smoke. Be mindful that outdoors kids are curious and the last thing you want is a parent scolding you.  

DO step of the trail. If you are hiking along and see a good spot to walk off the trail and hide in some trees, do it. This is the perfect time to bring out the joints or blunts because the smell may travel but hopefully you won’t be seen.

DO NOT carry your bong or piece out and about. Be as discreet as you can be with smoking tools. No need to bring attention to yourself.

DO pack out all and any trash you create. Wraps, roaches and snacks should all be packed out and the space should be cleaner than when you left it.

Spending time outdoors is great and with some cannabis the adventure is truly magical. For the most part other hikers aren’t bothered by it. But, you may encounter some backlash. If you follow the guideline you should be just fine. Make sure to enjoy yourself and be mindful.

Get high, feel alive.
