Level Up Your Camping and Hiking

By Danyal Swan May 23, 2024

For those looking to enhance their connection with nature, blending hiking and camping with cannabis might offer a transformative experience. If cannabis is part of your routine for easing pain or anxiety, or simply unwinding after work, then it's no surprise it can enrich outdoor adventures too.

Here are a few reasons why nature enthusiasts might include cannabis on their outdoor journeys:

Enhanced Sensory Experiences

Cannabis is known for its ability to heighten sensory perception. Immersed in the beauty of the great outdoors, this can elevate ordinary moments. Envision the sounds of rustling leaves, the complex patterns on tree bark, the warm glow of the campfire, and the rich flavors of campfire meals—all perceived with greater intensity. This sensory enhancement can make the natural world around you feel incredibly vivid and alive.

Relaxation and Stress Relief

Many people turn to camping and hiking as escapes from the stresses of everyday life. Introducing cannabis can deepen this stress relief. Its soothing effects can help dissolve lingering tension, enabling you to fully relax in the serene environment. After a strenuous hike, cannabis can help calm both mind and body, setting the stage for a peaceful night under the stars.

Deeper Connections with Nature and Others

Cannabis often fosters introspection and heightened emotional awareness, leading to a more profound appreciation of the surrounding natural beauty and a stronger sense of connection with the environment. In areas where recreational use is legal, sharing cannabis can also enhance group dynamics. The shared experience of enjoying cannabis around a campfire can spark engaging conversations and memorable moments, deepening bonds and adding a social component to the adventure.

Ideal Cannabis Products for Hiking and Camping

But what are the best cannabis products for the great outdoors? Portability is key—a bulky glass bong is hard to pack, and using a bowl might require waiting for calm weather. Here are some top choices:

  • The Bubsy: An innovative portable bong that discreetly resembles a water bottle.
  • The Puffco Peak: A compact device perfect for on-the-go dabbing.
  • Pre-rolls: Ready-to-go flower for easy enjoyment during a hike or around the campfire.
  • Vapes: Convenient and easy to use, with minimal setup and clean-up.
  • Edibles: Pre-dosed treats that offer a no-fuss, smoke-free option, perfect for any outdoor setting.

These enhancements and products can significantly elevate the outdoor experience, making each moment more memorable and enjoyable.

The Best Hiking and Campfire Cannabis Edibles Recipes

Outside of products to grab and go, homemade edibles are a great way to bring marijuana into your outdoor exploration. Take a look at our three favorite recipes:

Cannabis-Infused Trail Mix


Prep Time: 5 minYield 12-16 servings
It's not hiking without trail mix. Amp up yours with a dose of MÜV cannabis chocolates! Chopping up into pieces helps you enjoy the chocolate that much longer. And, because we're not monsters, we recommend adding additional unmedicated chocolate candies. Ingredients:
  1. 1 c of your favorite nuts, or 1/2 c peanut butter chips
  2. 1/2 c seeds, like sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  3. 1 c dried fruit, we like raisins, cranberries, chopped apricots, apple slices, or banana chips
  4. 1/2 c granola, Cheerios, or pretzels.
  5. 1/4 c chocolate chips or candy
  6. 1/4 c peanut butter chips (if you're not using nuts)
  7. 1 MÜV Chocolate per serving (or more, depending on your desired dose)

Directions:
  1. Mix all of your dry ingredients together, except the Encore or similar cannabis chocolates.
  2. Divide the trail mix into 12-16 servings.
  3. Add your desired dose of cannabis chocolate to each serving.
  4. Enjoy while hiking or camping!

Cannabis-Infused Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola Bars


Prep Time: 45 minYield 12-16 bars
One of the best snacks for hiking and camping, outside of loose-y goose-y trail mix? Granola bars. Amplify the treat with an added dose of THC using cannabutter. Cannabutter is a great option for crafting these delightful treats as you can tailor the dose to your preference. Ingredients:
  • 1/4 c cannabutter
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 c shredded coconut
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c of your favorite nuts, chopped
  • 1/4 c honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Line the baking dish with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and chopped nuts. If you’re adding optional seeds, mix them in as well.
  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the cannabis-infused coconut oil, honey (or maple syrup), brown sugar, and peanut butter. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  6. Pour the warm liquid mixture over the dry ingredients in the bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are evenly coated.
  7. Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared baking dish. Press it down firmly to compact the mixture (this helps the bars hold together after baking).
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Cooling in the refrigerator for about an hour can make the bars easier to slice.
  10. Once cooled, lift the parchment paper to remove the granola block from the pan and cut into bars.
  11. Store the bars in an airtight container for your hiking or camping adventure!

Cannabis-Infused S'mores


Prep Time: 5 minutesYield 1 s'more
The best part of camping is obviously s'mores. Amp up yours with a dose of THC using MÜV Chocolates! Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, pick your flavor and get ready for the best s'more – just don't forget your roasting sticks! Ingredients:
  • Graham crackers
  • Marshmallows
  • MÜV cannabis-infused chocolate

Directions:
  1. Put your medicated chocolate between two graham crackers
  2. Place your marshmallow on your roasting stick to your desired char
