Your Guide to Summer Cannabis Goods

Your Guide to Summer Cannabis Goods

With June gloom now just a relic of the past, it is safe to say we are all ready for some serious summertime action. The sun is shining, the beach is calling, and even traffic seems to be dying down—when summer is in session, weekends are now just miniature vacations and all of us here at MedMen marijuana dispensaries are ready to celebrate. Because no matter which state, coast, or vibe you’re occupying this summer, there’s no denying the simple pleasure of some fun and sun.

And while summer is the ultimate season to ditch the couch and head outdoors, you must not forget about your trusty friend cannabis. Because whether you are hitting the pool or hiking some peaks, there is a marijuana moment to be had for everyone—lest you’re under the age 21. To help you keep the fun going on all season long (or all year round, because let’s be real: if you believe in it enough, it never ends) we have compiled a trusty guide for all the exciting ways you can enjoy cannabis this summer, in a responsible fashion of course.

As you already know by now, MedMen has what you need in terms of stocking up on all the flower varieties. Depending on the activity chosen for your day, the strain and gear you use will vary. Looking to be a bit active, whether that be running around on the sand, biking up to a great view, or perhaps playing some outdoor basketball? Cannabis Sativa is your strain. Check out some Gold Seal Red Alien flower or the Dosist Bliss pen—two favorites that are sure to get you stoked on summer. For those aiming for a much more chill sort of vibe where lazing by the water, reading a book, or just basking in the sunshine is your ideal day, indica is it. Henry’s Original in the one and only Pineapple variety can’t get any better. It’s a day at the beach in a pretty cool pre-roll package. For those looking for a pen, Honey Vape Blackberry Kush is an indica strain we can get behind any day.

When you decide which pool or beach to post up at for the duration of the day, there’s THC sunscreen to give you tour SPF needs with a little extra boost. And for that fateful moment when you perhaps forget to re-apply and get bit crispy? Slap on some soothing CBD cream to get you relaxed, refreshed, and really not thinking all that much about the tan lines you’ve recently created.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, we are onto the edibles. Did somebody say cannabis infused cocktails, mocktails, snacks, and more? We sure did.

No cooler or fridge is complete without some marijuana beverages. Venice Cookie Co. offers countless flavors of the madly delicious Cannabis Quencher Lemonade: a concoction that takes your favorite summer drink that harkens back to the days of yore and adds some THC to make it bit more adult. There’s Strawberry Lemonade and Mango, too, so be sure to add those to the beverage selection.

With a name like The Surfer, the Venice Cookie Co. cookies are just what you need for a pre-beach pick-me-up or a post-surf session snack. And for those looking to put their culinary skills to the test, let us introduce you to the world of cannabis infused food. Are you ready? Grab some THC or cannabis oil and a favorite summer recipe, and chances are high that you can make a delicious dish with a touch of marijuana. Guacamole tastes better with some THC oil blended in—we’re certain of it. Hummus? We’re down with the dup, but you should up the game with some cannabis oil, too. Looking for something light and refreshing? Smoothies really do taste better with some extra cannabis extract in there. Cannabis oil is your friend for any and all drinks when you want some added buzz.

For those looking for a simple mixer, Mirth Provisions crafts cannabis infused tonics that pair perfectly with some booze. Sparkling Cranberry, Pomegranate, Ginger, Reiner Cherry—there’s a flavor for you and your drink.

So, there you have it. Grab your vape, your deliciously perfect edibles, the newly crafted cannabis smoothies, and your trusty towel—it’s going to be a great summer!
