The Ultimate Outdoor Adventure Bud

Alright, fellow Canna Campers! You're gearing up for an unforgettable outdoor escapade, and you want to enhance the experience with some herb. But here's the deal – finding the perfect strain for your adventure can be a bit tricky, you don’t want relaxing effects when you want to be active, and energizing effects when you wanted to relax.

Fear not, though, because we've got your back! In this casual guide, we'll navigate through the green wilderness and help you find that ideal bud to elevate your outdoor shenanigans. So grab your backpack and let's dive in!

Matching Strains with Activities: First things first, think about what kind of outdoor adventure you're about to embark on. Are you going on an epic hike or setting up camp to chill? Different strains offer different vibes, so consider your activities.

 Sativa-dominant strains are your energizing buddies, perfect for active pursuits like hiking or biking. Indica-dominant strains, on the other hand, are more mellow and relaxing, ideal for unwinding by the campfire or soaking in nature's beauty.

We’ve compiled a list of a few different popular strains to get you heading in the right direction.

Need the extra little kick of motivation? Check out the Strains listed below:

Durban Poision
  • Durban Poison: Known for its uplifting and energizing effects, Durban Poison is a pure sativa strain that originated in South Africa. It delivers a clear-headed and focused high, making it a popular choice for daytime activities.
    Durban Poison can boost your energy, creativity, and motivation, making it ideal for hiking, outdoor sports, or any adventure where you want to stay alert and engaged.



  • Green Crack: Don't let the name fool you! Green Crack is a potent sativa-dominant strain that offers an intense burst of energy and mental stimulation. It provides a strong cerebral high, promoting focus, productivity, and an uplifted mood. This strain is often favored by those seeking an extra kick of motivation and enthusiasm for their outdoor adventures, such as exploring nature trails, biking, or engaging in social activities.


Super Lemon Haze Bud
  • Super Lemon Haze: As the name suggests, Super Lemon Haze is a zesty and invigorating sativa-dominant strain. It's a cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze, resulting in a strain with a citrusy aroma and a potent uplifting effect. Super Lemon Haze offers an energetic and euphoric high, perfect for boosting creativity and enhancing outdoor activities like sightseeing, photography, or even just enjoying a lively hike with friends.

Now, let's talk cannabinoids – the stuff that gives cannabis its magic. THC and CBD are the big players here. THC brings uplifting effects, while CBD offers therapeutic goodness and can balance out the intense highs. If you're looking for a wild ride, go for strains with higher THC levels like Wi-Fi OG. If you prefer a smoother and more balanced experience, opt for strains with a bit more CBD like Sweet and Sour Widow. Remember your own tolerance and what kind of adventure buzz you're after.

Terpenes, my friend, are the aromatic compounds responsible for the fantastic flavors and smells of your buds. They also team up with cannabinoids to create different effects. If this is your first time hearing about them don’t feel bad most people only know Indica and Sativa as the only defining properties of the plant. 

 Fancy a citrusy boost? Look for strains high in Limonene such as Kush Mintz. Need to chill out after a long day of exploring? Seek out strains with Myrcene like Mimosa, which brings those calming and sedative vibes, yep it’s not only the name of a drink it’s one of my favorite strains for relaxing and is typically widely available (like most of the other strains listed here). Terpenes can add a layer of awesomeness to your outdoor adventure, so consider their profiles when choosing your strain.

When in doubt, ask the experts! Talk to experienced cannabis enthusiasts, chat up your friendly neighborhood budtender, or dive into online cannabis communities for recommendations.

Here's a nugget of wisdom remember “Start Low and Find Your Flow” – start with low dosages, my friend. Especially if you're trying a new strain. You don't want to be caught off guard by a fast-paced battle in your brain type of experience when
