Leafly’s Curated Cannabis Pairings for Every Summer Session

Memorial Day has always been the unofficial start of summer here in LA. It feels like we’ve waited years to finally get outside and enjoy all the warm weather activities we’ve been missing. With the long weekend beckoning us, we’ve been making a list of our favorite summer activities, and pairing them with our favorite cannabis strains and products to make the upcoming season unforgettable. 

All of these quintessential summer activities are made so much better when paired with the right cannabis: hiking the Santa Monica mountains, heading up to the mountains for a weekend at the lake, laying out on the beach, getting sweaty at Culver City Stairs, taste-testing small-batch ice cream and camping surrounded by gorgeous landscapes. There’s a whole wide world of cannabis out there to be enjoyed, with new cannabinoids popping up all the time and tried-and-true THC strains getting better and better, so why not enjoy an ideal weed product smiling in the summer sun? Whether we’re hiking, camping, outdoor yoga cloud-gazing, or  boardwalk biking, we’ve always been able to find a plant-based pairing with Leafly.com‘s cannabis lists for every kind of person. From benefit-based searching to strain-based shopping, with a ton of options in between, Leafly is where cannabis experts and newcomers alike go to gain knowledge about products and place orders for delivery or pick-up at a local dispensary. 

Leafly is the world’s most trusted destination to discover cannabis products and order them from legal, licensed retailers. A go-to source for all things cannabis, Leafly.com can help you find the weed you need for every summer activity: 

The Best Edibles For Hiking

When participating in anything physical, we love a good 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD. Edibles like Kaneh Co’s SOLOS Superfood Granola Bite cover both the mind and the body, making the hike up to the spectacular views of the Santa Monica mountains a refreshing reset. 

The 5:5 mg THC/CBD SOLOS Superfood Granola Bite are some of the best edibles for hiking that can be found and ordered through Leafly. As vegan, gluten-free granola bites brimming with sunflower seeds, goji berries, chia seeds, almonds, and oats, they give you the relief and energy you need for a fantastic day becoming one with nature. We always like to pack a few!

What Cannabis Oils To Bring To The BBQ

Cannabis oil is an undervalued form factor that deserves to have its day in the sun, so why not make it happen at your summer BBQ? Search Potli on Leafly to find it on dispensary menus near you. If you’re looking for a cannabis oil to bring to the BBQ, hands down head over to Leafly and grab yourself some cannabis infused extra virgin olive oil, Potli’s 100mg Oil Aster x Olive Oil. Made in partnership with Aster Farms, this full spectrum cannabis oil is great for passing down the table. 

Sublinguals For Skating

If sublinguals are your jam, Kin Slips is the brand you want to look for. Kin Slips has sublingual strips covered, with each flavor benefitting you in different ways. If your summer plans include a dreamy skate down the boardwalk, Kin Slips’ Float On will provide you just that. Known for giving both balance and tranquility, these sublinguals do exactly what they promise. 

Our Favorite Pre Rolls For Beach Bonfires

If you’re looking for pre rolls on Leafly, you’re going to feel like you’ve hit the absolute jackpot. There are so many high-rated options to choose from that narrowing it down to the benefits you’re looking for can be helpful. For summer bonfires at the beach, we prefer a chill vibe that is social yet calm. Something like the top-rated LEUNE Desert Gold Pre Roll encapsulates both energies, with the sativa dominant strain being reviewed as balanced, euphoric and uplifting. 

Tasty Tinctures For Watching Summer Blockbusters

We’ve found the ideal tincture for watching a film is Moods Green 18:1 CBD Tincture. We came across this product by searching for relaxing tinctures on Leafly, and we couldn’t be happier that this result popped up for us. Used to soothe and unwind, we recommend taking your preferred tincture dosage of this before cuddling up to catch a flick. 

The Best Disposable Vapes For Camping

Camping is all about unplugging from your daily grind, clearing your mind and becoming one with the beauty of nature that surrounds you. We can’t think of a better way to be consumed by the tranquility of the natural world than with an indica-dominant hybrid like the Betty White Disposable Vape Pen by Litto.

Try These Cannabis Drinks For Lake Days

What pairs better with a day lazing at the lake than a sweet tea? A sweet tea that’s infused with 100mg of cannabis! Leafly recommended Uncle Arnie’s Sweet Peach Iced Tea to us and man, was it a good suggestion. As refreshing as it is peach-pie delicious, Uncle Arnie’s is nano infused with a 20 to 40 minute onset time. If you’re planning a lake trip in your future, hop onto Leafly.com and get yourself a few of these bad boys delivered. You won’t regret it!

Highest Rated Pre-Workout Vape Carts

For those who like to spend their warm summer evenings going on a leisurely jog or hiking up the Culver City Stairs to catch the sunset, there are some cannabis vape cartridges that can make the experience much more enjoyable. Using Leafly, you can find Raw Garden near you, a customer favorite and our personal go-to vape cart brand. Raw Garden’s Bimini Tangelo refined live resin vape cartridge is highly rated and has tons of positive reviews confirming that the sativa strain is great for reducing fatigue and promoting focus.

Flower You’ve Gotta Try For Tasting New Food

One of our favorite things to do is to browse Leafly by strain effect. It’s such a fun way to learn more about cannabis and the terpenes it produces! Caryophyllene is a terpene that is great for increasing your appetite, and you can filter by caryophyllene, or any other terpene, from Leafly’s strains page. If you’re in a foodie mood, we recommend starting off your venture tasting some flower like Happy Green Gorilla Glue, a first place winner in both the Michigan and Los Angeles 2014 Cannabis Cups as well as the High Times Jamaican World Cup. 

No matter what your plans are this summer, Leafly offers the more informed way to shop, with the best hook-ups for every situation. With more than 5,000 strains in the Leafly strain library to discover and over one million user reviews to help guide you, Leafly is an invaluable portal to the cannabis world that can be accessed with a mere click.
