Summer is rounding out, which means everyone is racing to get that last dose of outdoor adventure in. If you’re planning on spending the weekend sleeping outside, you may be looking for cannabis strains that’ll enhance the experience. Here are seven strains with relaxing qualities that’ll help ease your mind and body while nature fills your soul with feel-good energy.
Like its name suggests, 9 Pound Hammer tends to slam consumers with a potent high that slides from head to toe. It’ll have you feeling nice and relaxed, with a cold beer in-hand, your butt in a foldable lawn chair, and your eyes gazing off in the distance.
Animal Cookies is the child of legendary strains GSC and Fire OG. It has a sweet and sour aroma while the smoke’s flavor has a slight gassiness that flexes OG genetics. Animal Cookies provides heavily relaxing effects that settle into the face and throughout the body.
Chemdog is a legendary strain that needs no introduction. It is the godmother of all gassy strains, and it never fails to sit me down and chill me out. Perfect for laying on the ground outside of your tent and gazing at the stars, grab this caryophyllene-dominant strain if you like to pair camping trips with a heavy high that sinks from head to toe.
Cherry Pie is a cross of Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison that can have a relatively light THC content, but its heavy high should be approached with respect. Its terpene profile kicks out a sweet and sour cherry fragrance that ushers in a very euphoric and relaxing high. Cherry Pie is a great selection if you want a long-lasting high to pair with campfire conversations.
Cotton Candy Kush is a hybrid that crosses Lavender with Power Plant. The name makes this strain sound light, but it packs a powerful punch. With fluffy buds that kick out a sweet and floral scent, Cotton Candy Kush is that strain you’ll want for feeling carefree and relaxed even while camping in bear country.
God’s Gift contains flavors of grape, citrus, and hash. Its parents are Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush. Every time I vape this strain, it shakes my body up with a relaxing high that puts a smile on my face. With such potent parents, it’s easy to see why God’s Gift is a great strain to pair with chillin’ campside with the homies.
Bred in part from OG Kush, King Louis XIII is a strain with a strong reputation for putting people into a deep state of relaxation. Its dense nugs provide a strong piney and earthy flavor, reminding you of its OG genetics after each puff. You know when it’s 3 a.m. and everyone wants to put the fire out and go to sleep, but no one wants to be the first one to say or do so? King Louis offers a solution, because not long after this smoke, your willpower will be no match for the dreamy relaxation this strain delivers.
