As we watched another majestic sunset go down over the west Valley this week, it hit us like a clean dab: Arizona really is the most beautiful state the USA’s got going. No matter where you live, you’re never more than a 45 minute drive from serene nature and all the desert, mountain or forest real estate blessed upon this land by the ancient saguaro gods (probably).
Now that the weather might start thinking about cooperating with our statewide itch to get outside, it’s the perfect time to get your tent out of storage and put some fresh double-A’s in your flashlight. The fall season is camping season in AZ, and that means enjoying all the health benefits the good ol’ outdoors has to offer – Vitamin D, immune boosting chemicals, an opportunity to unplug from technology – and to do so with a little help from cannabis strains that pair oh so perfectly with breezes and bonfires.
Partaking in top-shelf flower while tiptoeing through them yourself is a favorite pastime of many at Sol Flower. Here are 7 strains to pack with you for your next camping adventure.
