Sweltering heat aside, the summer season is always a fun and festive time. Whether you enjoy hiking or simply lounging around in the park, the summer is the perfect time to do all that. And just like other folks, stoners also have their fun during this time of year. Because, after all, combining the magic herb with any activity, especially those involving the sun and warmth, is always a delight.

So if you are seeking some fun summer activities to accompany your herbal exploits, this article’s for you. Get some inspiration, and have a fun and fruitful time while the weather is still warm!

10 Summer Activities to Try While High

So without further ado, here are 10 of the many fun things to try under the influence of the herb this summer. Feel free to give some, or all of them, a go if you’ve got the time.

1. Vape Your Way Around the Botanical Gardens

If you live in a concrete jungle, a botanical garden is likely the closest thing to nature you have available. Now, if you don’t know what it is, a botanical garden is basically an enclosed area filled with different species of plants. The goal of a botanical garden is not only to house these plants, but also to preserve and cultivate them. A trip to the botanical garden is already trippy on its own. Being amongst a wide range of plants of different origins, each with a different look and feel, makes you appreciate nature and its many intricacies.

But add your beloved herb into the mix, and you get quite a treat. Depending on the strain, you’ll be taken on a mini solo ride through some of nature’s most majestic species. But feel free to bring an equally stoned friend with you for even more fun.

2. Invite Friends Over for a Blaze and Outdoor Movie Marathon

For anyone born after the 1990s, you likely never got to experience a drive-in movie. As the name suggests, you enjoy a blockbuster film in your vehicle, as opposed to a movie theatre. Drive-in movies may no longer be a thing, but you can still enjoy a film outdoors on the "big screen". Yes, you may need to set up a screen and a projector to get the best experience. But once you’ve got that all in order, the only thing left to do is sit back and enjoy the movie.

But you can further elevate the experience by having some friends over and sparking up a doobie (or several). When it comes to what you view, you can put on a comedy special and laugh until your heads hurt, or you can watch a thriller and be extra freaked out. The choice is yours.

3. Try Puffing and Painting

Especially during peak summer heat, sometimes it’s very tempting to stay indoors. And while you’re stuck inside, for the time being, why not make yourself productive? A good start would be to do some painting.

Now, of course, if we’re talking about such a creative activity, a little weed can also make the situation a bit more fun. First take a puff or two from a joint filled with your favourite strain, then let the creativity flow. Don’t hold back here. Let your elevated imagination take you to places you’ve never been before. You’ll be amazed at the artwork you can create when you really let go.

4. Bring Some Herb With You to an Outdoor Concert

Music and marijuana have a longstanding partnership. For many decades now, musicians have incorporated the devil’s lettuce into their craft. And more often than not, it produces excellent results. The same can be said for non-musicians who simply want to enjoy a good tune. And it’s one thing to get high while listening to your favourite record at home, but being buzzed at an outdoor concert is an entirely new adventure altogether.

Assuming you live in a place where recreational weed is legal, go ahead and spark up in the middle of the crowd. But if you need to keep things discreet, that’s nothing a vape or edibles can’t help you with.

5. Spark a Joint on the Beach

Going to the beach is one of the most beloved outdoor activities among all manner of people. The beach is also a great spot to be under the influence of the herb. It’s a tranquil, peaceful place where all you hear is the sound of the waves splashing on the shore. What better location to spark up a joint?

Of course, it depends on how much privacy you have, not to mention how windy it is, but if you’re enjoying the space alone or with just a couple friends, you can smoke up and enjoy a peaceful moment without anyone else bothering you.


6. Take Some Edibles to an Aquarium

Many of us have the fantasy of going deep underwater. There are a lot of unexplored life forms down there, and it would be a treat to familiarise yourself with some of them. The next best thing to exploring the depths of the ocean in a submarine is to visit a nearby aquarium. Here, you’ll see how many majestic-looking fishes coexist with some of the ocean’s apex predators. Now, as you know, getting high is our recurring theme here. In terms of doing it in an indoor aquarium, edibles are your best bet. They don’t attract unwanted attention, and they will get the job done very well.

But be warned: edibles aren’t to be taken lightly. Read the labels beforehand and take them seriously. Most importantly, dose responsibly. You wouldn’t want to turn a potentially great experience into a traumatising weed trip, now would you?

7. Get Stoned With Salad

Speaking of edibles, since worldwide legalization began, the number of options and recipes for cannabis-infused treats has multiplied. Nowadays, stoners aren’t limited to space cakes and cookies. You can also enjoy savoury delicacies, like salads. The next question is, how do you include cannabis in this party? In the case of a salad, you can create some tasty weed-infused olive oil.

Now, it may seem like a complicated process, but it needn’t be. Like all edible recipes, you’ll first need to decarboxylate your buds (aka heat them) to activate those precious cannabinoids. The next steps are a bit more extensive, but very much doable. Once your canna-infused olive oil is good to go, add it to a dressing recipe of your choice, or pour it as is, in small quantities, directly on your greens.

8. Relax in the Garden With a Paddling Pool and a Blunt

Not everyone has the luxury of building a pool in their backgarden. If you autumn into this category, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some refreshing fun. Your next best option: a paddling pool. Sure, you’ll need to find a storage space for it, and you’ll definitely spend some time inflating it. But once all the work is done, all that’s left to do is wade in and enjoy the same perks that pool owners do.

And you know what else can elevate the experience? A blunt! If your paddling pool is big enough, invite some friends over and pass that doobie around. You can even amp up the overall vibe with some music and a few drinks. Now that’s how you spend summer afternoons like a champion.

9. Go Hiking While High

For many people, hiking is more of a chore than a leisure activity. Not a lot of folks are willing to suit up in their athletic gear, hike up a hill, and deal with some aching muscles the next day. After all, you do have the option to just lay on the couch all afternoon and watch a series of stand-up specials on Netflix. But what if we told you that you can make hiking worth your while if you add a little weed to the equation? All you need is a reliable sativa to uplift your spirits and make you want to get off the couch and be more active.

Now, if you’re hiking high for the first time, tread very lightly. Don’t let it reach a point where you become exhausted or too stoned to continue on. Start with low doses, and feel it out first before going for seconds.

10. Grow Weed Outdoors

What better stoned summer activity than cultivating your own cannabis crop? Maintaining your garden under the beaming summer sun, joint in hand, is an experience unmatched by any other. The great thing about growing weed outdoors is that it is less expensive and more natural compared to indoor cultivation. And if you do it right, your yields will also be much larger per plant.

If you’re looking for a summer hobby, outdoor weed growing is a wonderful investment of your time. You get to appreciate this beloved plant more, while also growing your very own supply. That’s a win-win right there.
