Here’s how to pack a weed-themed picnic basket

With the Fourth of July holiday past in the rearview mirror – and Labor Day barely visible on the horizon – the country has entered peak picnic season.

Over the next few weeks, patterns of gingham blankets will be spread out in grassy parks from coast to coast, where thousands of wicker knitters will dispose of their edibles for the benefit of the wicker. who want to dine outdoors. And with 19 states now allowing recreational marijuana consumption for those 21 and older, it’s highly likely that a pot product or two will show up on the trip.

As anyone who has left a cork on the kitchen counter can tell you, the first rule of picnic motivation is that the more effort you put into planning your picnic on the front, you will reap more benefits. . And that goes double if you’re planning to enhance the experience of fresh air that naturally comes your way back home hanging in the backyard (or anywhere else you’re using appropriately). legislation – laws vary from state to state). However, because many things sesh that come out cool as it sits on your coffee table (like gravity bubbles) turn out to be unwieldy or impractical in large environments, weeds love What should nature do?

To help answer that question, I mentioned two people whose enthusiasm for all things weed can perhaps only be compared by their love of travel and picnics: content creators marijuana on YouTube Alice and Clark Campbell, aka That High Couple. I recently asked them to pack a picnic basket (they pack two), get a blanket, and meet me at a grassy, ​​tree-lined park not far from their Van Nuys apartment.

There, in addition to a bunch of festive food (think strawberries, a trio of cheeses, a crusty bread, and a bunch of grapes worthy of a Roman emperor), they shared a their weed number (if that’s not the word, it should be). And, even if just one or two of the following make it into your wicker basket this season, you’ll still be well on your way to the perfect summer picnic.

No couple agrees on everything, and for the Campbells, a rare difference of opinion in picnic packing is in the THC-infused beverage division.

Even if you don’t necessarily try to get sly high, there’s something about the quiet, outdoor atmosphere of the picnic that feels tailored to the stealthy smoking device. . And That High Couple doesn’t lack that either, including an Empire Glassworks tube that resembles a mini bread, a cheeseburger-shaped jar and a tube shaped like a slice of pepperoni pizza.
