Finally! Grey clouds have evaporated, temperatures are above freezing, and the sun beckons us from our homes. It’s official, summer has arrived. Tis the season of camping, hiking, farmer’s markets, playing in water, and long warm days that turn into cool nights. The only thing that could make summer better is cannabis.
There are dozens, even hundreds, of cannabis strains to choose from. Knowing which ones will compliment your summer activities can seem tricky, especially if you’re new to the cannabis scene. While indica strains are great for relaxation, Sativa strains are a fantastic boost to any summer activities you have planned. Let us give you three reasons why!
A Boost of Energy
One of the most notable differences between Indica and Sativa cannabis strains is their impact on our energy. Sativa strains tend to be more stimulating, providing a similar energetic boost as a cup of morning coffee – without the caffeine crash.
Feeling more energetic motivates us to take on the day! No matter what activity you plan, the effects of Sativa will have you feeling motivated to step out of your comfort zone and say yes to an adventure!
Something about blue skies and the shining sun inspires us to get creative. That may mean trying a DIY you found online or setting aside some time to try out a new hobby.
There are no wrong answers when it comes to creativity, and Sativa strains can give you the confidence and craving to get started! Make a day of it! Include your kids or invite some friends over to be creative with you.
Get Intouch with Nature
The best thing about summer is the endless outdoor activities to choose from. We’ve been cooped up at home for months while rain steadily consumed our days, but we’re finally free to hike, bike, swim, and do all the many wonderful activities we’ve missed.
It’s healing to spend time in nature, and including cannabis only elevates your experience. Smoke a Sativa joint while strolling through Forest Park and listen to the breeze speak through the trees. Enjoy an edible on the way to the coast, then search for starfish and play with the sea anemones in tidepools. Remember what it feels like to be a kid again in nature.
We all may have our favorite seasons, but something about summer will forever inspire nostalgia for vacations and fun. It’s a time to play and reunite with our inner child. Sativa only heightens this connection by giving us energy, boosting our creativity, and reminding us that we’re more than just our jobs and responsibilities. We’re human beings and just as a part of nature as the blooming flowers and towering trees.
