Who doesn’t love smoking outside?
Whether you’re heading off on a hike, a picnic, or just lighting up in your own backyard, the sun, breeze, and sounds of the birds can elevate any smoke session. You can activate your endocannabinoid system, soak up vitamin D, and lower your blood pressure all at once.
But smoking outside comes with a lot more considerations than indoor sessions. You want a piece that’s easily portable and discreet, so it can’t be easily breakable. Leave no trace rules are always a priority, so a reusable piece beats disposable joints. And, Mother Nature can throw the unexpected your way, so having a piece that won’t extinguish at the slightest gust of wind is also important. You also have to worry about the transport – to and from your destination, but also while walking any trails.
Luckily, it’s 2022 and there’s an abundance of pieces made to withstand whatever the outdoors can throw at you.
