Summer Smoke Sesh Essentials

The days are getting longer and hotter, which means that it's that time of year where we can smoke and enjoy a pleasant breeze, warm sunshine, and a joint among friends. Smoking indoors can be convenient and fun throughout the year, but once summer comes, a summer smoke sesh can mix things up.

An outdoor smoke sesh can be a great way to get together with your cannabis-loving friends while enjoying delicious food and drinks. There are many cannabis products that can enhance your outdoor smoke circle. In order to have a good time and avoid complications for your summer smoke sesh, use these practical tips and summertime cannabis products.

Traveling with Weed

Unless you're hosting a weed-themed party at your home, you're more than likely going to be bringing your weed from your place to the beach, on a hike, or camping in the great outdoors. Regardless of where you're headed to, you're going to need a sturdy and compact travel container or bag to transport all of your cannabis paraphernalia.

Travel Case

Cannador, a luxury cannabis humidor company, makes sleek and stylish leather and nylon travel cases featuring an airtight zipper and modular interior to fit anywhere from six 1/4 oz glass cups or four 1/2 oz glass cups inside. Secure your vapes and grinder on adjustable nylon velcro straps and mesh pocket. Cannador also makes a cool leather toolkit you can use to store your dabber, vape pen, and other miscellanea for your outdoor summer smoke sesh.

UV-Protected Glass Jar

If you're bringing cannabis flower on your next adventure, you're going to need a durable and UV-protected jar to store your flower. External elements like sunlight, heat, and air can degrade cannabis flower quicker than if they were stored in a dry, dark, and cool place. Cannador also has airtight jars and a travel-friendly Cannaster where you can store 3/8 oz of flower buds. The Cannaster comes with a kief repository to hold your kief for future use.

Summer Smoke Sesh Strains

High-CBD Strains Weed

Everyone has their favorite strain to smoke during those balmy summer smoke seshes. California residents, for example, can enjoy from a bevy of cannabis strains like Trainwreck, Hog's Breath, and the fruity Blueberry strain while they enjoy the bright and sunny day. Intrepid campers will appreciate the invigorating nature of Sativa strains like Sour Diesel, Green Crack, or Super Lemon Haze while they traverse through breathtaking landscapes.

Smoking and Dabbing Outdoors

Smoking and dabbing outdoors at the beach, a hiking trail, or in nature during the summer requires an extra bit of equipment that can be heavy and cumbersome, especially if you're carrying it for hours on end on a hike or to a location far from your home. Some smoking or vaping products can help you have a more convenient and portable tool to consume cannabis.

Travel-Friendly Bong

Bongs or any glass pieces are easy to use, but can be difficult to carry and are prone to breaking. The Alpha Puff Kit is an "all-in-one smoking solution" you can take on-the-go. It's a slim and durable bong with multiple compartments for storing king-size rolling papers, filter cards, rolling cones, and cannabis flower. Silicone bongs can be another lightweight and foldable bong option that takes up less space in your travel bag than a glass bong. Be cautious if you’re thinking about sparking up in the great outdoors — we all know the damage that can happen when even a small fire is started.

Glass Blunt or One-Hitter

A glass blunt is a stylish and convenient tool that can be passed around your summer smoke sesh circle multiple times. Pack up to 2 grams in the glass tube and twist the screw to pack it in tight. Although these can break over rough terrain, they can be a good way to share weed around with your buddies. A simple one-hitter provides a quick and discreet hit without anyone being the wiser.

Portable Dab Rig or Vape Pen

For those that prefer modern technology to traditional flower or joints, portable dab rigs and vape pens are intuitive and state-of-the-art tools that take a summer smoke sesh to the next level. Vaping isn't as odor or smoke-emitting as smoking cannabis. Choose trusted portable dab pens like the Pax Era or the Puffco Vaporizer.

Summer Smoke Sesh Accessories

When enjoying the summer breeze outside, you can't bring all of your smoking accessories with you, as much as you'd like to. The desktop vaporizer and ounce jar of flower can stay home, unless your party is in your backyard. If you're not as close to home, these summer smoke sesh accessories will lighten your load and give you an unforgettable experience.

Grinder Card

An electric grinder can provide seamless grinding, but when you're out on an adventure, you might benefit more from a weed grinder card. A grinding card can be as small as one and a half inch. You can grate your weed over the card discreetly and efficiently.

Rolling Papers, Tips, and Cones

Rolling a joint outside during your summer smoke sesh can be a difficult task, especially if there's a strong wind blowing all your herb away. Additionally, ash from joints is the perfect kindling for dry and arid environments.

Try pre-rolled joints for an effortless experience. Roll your own joint with Raw's Natural Rolling Papers, made out of organic hemp. Don't forget the crutches to avoid burning yourself. Finally, Raw's classic cone papers make rolling a joint a cinch.

Electronic Lighter

Don't get stuck without a wind-proof lighter for your outdoor summer smoke sesh. Electronic lighters are rechargeable so you'll never have to buy another lighter again.  The Tesla Coil Lighters Dual-Arc Lighter doesn't use butane or a flame. Instead, an electric arc lights up your joint.

An outdoor summer smoke sesh can, sometimes, get dicey. Novice or long-time users can start to feel paranoid and anxious in unfamiliar surroundings. Many users have reported taking CBD to lower the negative side effects of THC. CBD gummies, CBD drops, mints, tinctures, patches, topicals, or flower provide an intoxicating-free alternative to THC.


Cannabis-infused edibles are a smoke-free way to enjoy popular cannabinoids like THC and CBD on-the-go. For example, Northern California residents can pick up a pack of Atlas Edibles' gourmet granola clusters made from ingredients like Mexican chocolate, chilies, dried currants, caramel, ginger, wild blueberries, and more.

Munchies and Drinks

Proceed with caution if you're looking to satisfy your munchies or quench your thirst with cannabis-infused edibles. Infuse common summertime snacks like hummus, salsa, guacamole, or potato salad with a hint of cannabis tincture.

Summertime Munchies

The best munchies after smoking a joint or taking a hit from a dab pen range from easy-to-make quesadillas to a quick peanut butter and banana sandwich. These can really hit the spot during your summer smoke sesh. Make sure to bring something lightweight and easy to carry like granola, nuts, dried fruit, or chips.

Cannabis-Infused Cocktails

Looking to make your own summer cocktails at your summer bbq party? Give cannabis vodka cocktails a try. Infusing cannabis into alcohol can be really simple. Other cannabis cocktail infusions include the spicy Lawnmower, the lemonade-inspired LemonAID(+), or the rum-infused Jamaican Me Crazy.

A sunny summer smoke sesh isn't complete without summertime tunes. Peruse Spotify for some chill or upbeat playlists or stick with the classic smoking songs for summer. Set up your Bluetooth speaker to get the party started or put on your earbuds to enjoy a scenic view after a puff on your hike.

Summer smoke seshes are meant to be relaxing and energizing experiences where you can bond with your smoking buddies. Make sure you always have all of your smoking essentials to ensure that you aren't left without one crucial smoke sesh component. Above all, have fun and smoke responsibly.
