Lakes, fields, beaches, and streams are just begging for use as summer heats up. Pack up a blanket, grab your toking essentials, and load up on all the infused goodies you can find for an outing fit for the memory books.

Headed to the Beach? Get a Strain on the Way

Does your partner have a beloved strain? Pair it with infused chips. Do your friends prefer a bottle of rosé? Consider a nice cannabis champagne instead. You can make a lasting impression getting elevated in the summer sun with your favorite people and our guide to the ultimate cannabis-infused picnic.

Step One: Stock Up on Delicious Cannabis Essentials

You can’t have a picnic without the perfect picnic snacks. We stuck to our own backyard and shopped Seattle, WA (with a few outliers in between), but many markets provide similar products, so you don’t have to miss out. Here’s what inspired us:

Fremont Freaks Apple Cinnamon and Salted Caramel Brownies

Craving something even sweeter? Reach for the Salted Caramel Brownies by Magic Kitchen and move your dessert up a level at your next picnic party.

Picnics and sandwiches go together like cannabis and rolling papers, so we couldn’t get enough of Swifts Edibles’ sweet CBD Cannabees Honey drizzled over creamy peanut butter and fresh banana slices. Thankfully, infused honey is not restricted to Washington—check your local dispensary for delicious edible goods in your area.
