What is my favorite way to spend summers in Maine? With cannabis of course! Here are a few of my go-to adventures to do while staying elevated during the Maine dog days of summer.
Whether I’m taking a dip in the lake, watching the waves along the rocky coast, or getting high up in the mountains, cannabis is a great addition to any summer adventure in the beautiful Pine Tree State. I don’t think I can pick my favorite summer activity, but no matter where the long days take me I know I can always count on a pick-me-up from a tasty edible, a wood-tipped vape pen, or a JAR dog walker joint . But, it’s important to respect your fellow Mainers and abide by smoking laws, so here are some of my go-to summer selects to stay high while enjoying all that Maine has to offer.
Maine is known for its beautiful abundance of water, from the clear blue lakes and ponds to the winding rivers connecting them. It can be tough to find a secret smoke spot when everyone under the sun is trying to enjoy the water, so on float days I tend to default to a THC beverage to quench my thirst and catch a little buzz. There are so many options for a delicious drink nowadays, and by slipping a JAR koozie over the label, you can be extra discrete when taking a sip. The high hits quickly and there is no hangover the next day! Now that’s a win-win.
Walking through the wharfs in Portland requires some sensitivity as well, and I tend to gravitate towards a vape pen to puff as I look out at the Atlantic Ocean. I love seeing the lobster boats bringing in their daily catch and hearing the seagulls swarming above the harbor. My favorite part of smoking a vape pen is the variety I have, from a fruity distillate pen to a strain-specific hash rosin pen, paired with the consistency and subtlety of the smoke. It’s like hitting a bowl without the cloud or the smell, perfect for a day of sightseeing in the state’s busiest city!
On those cooler summer days I like to make the drive up north for a hike. There’s nothing more satisfying than summiting a peak and looking out across the rolling green landscape below. But, a little pick-me-up at the top is also a must. I’ve found that the perfect hiking companion is the JAR tin of dog-walker joints. Ten .3g joints in a squish-protected case? Share them with your trail friends or smoke them all yourself, you can’t go wrong. -Hannah Woolfolk, JAR Retail General Manager & Outdoor Enthusiast
