Whether you're hitting the festival scene, enjoying the serenity of the great outdoors, or just chilling on the beach, time spent with good friends is time well spent! And as we all know, cannabis is a great addition to any friend-outing.
For many people, weed is great for socializing. Sure, some strains can leave you wishing you were at home watching Netflix, but others leave you feeling open and unguarded, ready to be social and hang out with your best buds. Not only that, but it’s a perfect way to make new friends!
In honor of International Friendship Day on Sunday, August 4th, we rounded up some of our favorite products to share with friends.
Pick up something for the group, call your buds, and let the fun begin! Scroll to start shopping!
”Cannabis has always played a special role in my closest friendships.”
“I have a bit of social anxiety and I get antsy just sitting with acquaintances, trying to make small talk,” says Rachel, a writer from Colorado. “But when you have a smoking friend, it gives you a reason to hang out often and the slow, relaxing process of smoking is a natural setting for sharing mundane, small moments from your day.”
When she moved to Colorado, Rachel says she had a tough time finding that feeling with her new friends. “It wasn't until I found another girl who smokes... that I felt that really special bond again. We definitely went from acquaintances to real friends because of the intimate, quality time we spent toking together.”
The best strains for socializing
For most people, we’d recommend to go for sativas over indicas. Sativas are known for giving an energy boost and a clear head, so you’ll be more alert and ready to hang with friends.
Sativa-dominant hybrids are also a good choice, especially for a relaxing chill sesh with friends. If you have anxiety, including social anxiety, though, reach for an indica or indica-dominant hybrid.
