Elevate Your Summer By Swapping These Things with Cannabis Items

We’ve waited patiently all year for summer, and it’s finally arrived! While June may mark the beginning of summer on a calendar, every Oregonian knows it doesn’t feel like summer in Portland until July. Now the days are warm and long, perfect for outdoor activities from camping and biking to barbeques and socializing on patios with friends late into the night.

It’s hard to imagine how Portland summers can get any better, but we at Greeley Gallery never shy away from a challenge. Being the cannabis lovers we are at our north Portland dispensary, we came up with three summertime things made better by including cannabis.

Swap Alcohol for Cannabis Beverages on the Fourth

Summer lures us outside and inspires the desire to socialize. Often, these social events include alcohol, especially when it’s a celebration like the 4th of July, though alcohol is also common at barbeques and an array of other summertime activities. Unfortunately, that also makes summer the season of hangovers. Still, it’s challenging not to drink when everyone else is. After all, no one enjoys being the only sober person.

That’s why we suggest swapping out alcoholic beverages for ones infused with THC. There are plenty of cannabis-infused drinks to choose from with varying levels of potency. Our favorites are Keef and Magic Number sodas, which both pack an incredible 100 mg of cannabis in a single can, meaning you can sip on a single drink all evening and never feel left out, but you will likely feel better than your friends the next day.

Swap Gram Crackers for Cannabis Cookies When Making S’mores

Classic s’mores, with a piece of chocolate and toasted marshmallow sandwiched between two pieces of gram crackers, is a summertime staple and masterpiece of a simple yet delicious dessert. We can almost feel the fire’s warmth and taste the sugary goodness of gooey flame-roasted marshmallows just thinking about it.

But there are many other creative s’more ideas. For instance, swapping out the gram crackers for cookies opens a whole new world of deliciousness. We can even elevate that idea further by swapping cookies from the grocery store with THC-infused Majik Cookies. A single cookie has 50 mg of THC, so unless you have a high tolerance, you might want to stick with one. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy conversation with friends or looking up at the night sky. Stop by Greeley Gallery and pick out your cookie flavors!

Swap Your Hot Pack for CBD Balms for Sore Muscles

One of the many reasons Summer is the best season in Portland is the numerous outdoor activities to partake in. Thanks to our central location, we can reach the coast, mountains, rivers, forests, and desert within an hour or two car ride. This means you can access almost every possible outdoor activity you could dream of.

Though, as fun as rock climbing, hiking, biking, windsurfing, and more are, they also often lead to sore, achy muscles. It’s practically instinct to reach for a heat pack to ease sore muscles, but we recommend reaching for Medicine Farm Botanicals Dragon’s Blend Salve with THC for faster, long-lasting relief. Dragon’s Blend is created to help athletes recover from strenuous activities, but it has many other uses, including easing nerve and joint pain, arthritis, and bruising.

Final Thoughts

Many people are unaware of the expanding cannabis marketplace, which includes a diverse range of products. There are many ways to enjoy cannabis, whether medicinal or recreational, that don’t involve smoking dried cannabis flower. You can find a wide variety of high-quality products at our local cannabis dispensary.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have or make recommendations. Greeley Gallery is open every day of the week between 7 am and 10 pm for your convenience. You can find us on the corner of Greeley Ave and Rosa Parks Way. We hope to see you soon!
