3 Ways to Enhance Your Hike With Cannabis

You may have a favorite local trail that you return to time and again. Or maybe you’re the kind of person who plans excursions around new hikes you want to explore. Whatever your style, hiking is more than just about moving your body.

Naturalist and author John Muir famously said: “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” And it’s true: Spending time outside has an abundance of benefits for both physical and mental health. There are scientific studies backing up the claims that being outdoors can help:

  • Fight inflammation
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Spur creativity
  • Promote focus


Something else that can also promote these benefits is cannabis. So, the next time you’re roaming around in nature, consider bringing along one of these marijuana products to take your hike to the next level.

1. Microdose While You Hike With Papa & Barkley’s 1:1 Releaf Patch

There are so many things that can get in the way of a rigorous walk in the woods—like sore muscles or a pain in the noggin. With Papa & Barkley’s 1:1 Releaf Patch, you can preemptively take care of aches and pains even before you get moving.

Use these single-dose transdermal patches to ease joint pain, cramps and headaches alike.

  • The patch’s formula includes convenient microdoses for up to 12 hours of relief.
  • The patch is easy to apply and convenient to pop into a backpack.
  • Good areas to place the patch include your back, biceps, wrists, shoulders, neck and ankles.

Unlike cannabis topicals, transdermal patches are designed so that cannabinoids enter the bloodstream. Because of this, it’s possible to feel mild psychoactive effects with this patch, but this will depend on the person and how they react to cannabis.


2. Promote a Sense of Well-Being While Hiking With the Rosette Wellness No. 1 Tincture

If you prefer to ingest cannabidiol (CBD) orally, try bringing along the Rosette Wellness’ No. 1 Cannabis Tincture in your pocket or pack. Rosette Wellness tinctures are easy to digest and rapidly absorbed. The No. 1 tincture promotes a sense of well-being in addition to easing conditions like chronic pain, inflammation and fibromyalgia.

Rosette Wellness tinctures combine marijuana-derived extracts with MCT oil made from coconuts; this helps evenly distribute cannabinoids across every drop. This way, you can be sure you’ll get a consistent dose every time.

Another plus with a tincture is that you can use it topically. So, if on your hike you suffer a scrape or a bruise, rub some of this tincture on your wound to promote healing.

This particular Rosette Wellness tincture has a cannabidiol (CBD) to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) ratio of 1:1, so it can produce mild psychoactive effects. But this ratio tends to leave consumers feeling evenly balanced. So, it may just be the thing to open your mind to the glorious nature all around you, while still being able to finish your hike.

3. Relax & Unwind on a Mellow Hike With Dosist’s Calm Vape Pen

Vaping is an even faster way to start experiencing the benefits of marijuana. If a relaxing time in the great outdoors is what you’re after, the Calm vape pen from Dosist will help you get there.

Dosist has created this CBD-rich, disposable and recyclable vape pen to combine the anti-inflammatory and antianxiety properties of CBD with the potent effects of three terpenes:

  • Myrcene, which promotes relaxation, uplifts mood and has anti-inflammatory properties
  • Beta-caryophyllene, which reduces pain and supports healthy skin
  • Limonene, which acts as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, and is known to calm anxiety.

Since Dosist tests its pens three times during the extraction process and spot checks final formulas, its cannabis oils are precise and consistent for a predictably mellow experience.
