9. DOLORES PARK SUNBATHING with KIVA CHOCOLATE BLUEBERRY BITES
Named by this website as the Best Place Ever, the top part of Dolores Park (colloquially known as Gay Beach) has a view that never gets old, and a new case of Spring Fever waiting every time you visit. The park is of course best enjoyed on a big ol’ blanket surrounded by your friends.
The most crowd-pleasing option for your whole picnic party is Kiva Confections’ Chocolate Blueberry Terra Bites. These American-grown THC chocolate covered blueberries are well-known for being shareable with large groups, with a microdosed 5 mg potency that hits the right note for the casual user. Heavy users, meanwhile, may enjoy a second or third.
8. CHEAP BUT EXCELLENT MICHELIN-STAR MEALS after RAW GARDEN VAPE HITS
Indoor dining is happening again, and the parklets are still basking in the sun. There are plenty of restaurants you’ve missed for a minute to rediscover again. And if you want to get fancy on a broke-ass budget, San Francisco’s cheapest Michelin star restaurants have entrées for as little as $17 a plate.
Vaping is smooth on the palate, and won’t leave your taste buds fried (or you reeking of skunk bud) after a pre-meal smoke-out. The strain enthusiasts at Raw Garden have an almost endless list of vaping varieties for both standard batteries and in PAX pod form. All of them are super-high in THC content, but we recommend the Galactic Punch #8, with an 82.4% THC content that’s out-of-this-world.
7. ENJOY THE ‘OUTDOOR ART MUSEUMS’ smoking PACIFIC STONE WEDDING CAKE
While the indoor museums inch toward reopening, the “outdoor museums” at the mural alleys are like art galleries that can serve as your open-air smokatorium. And if you haven’t been to the Mission District’s Clarion Alley and Balmy Alley lately, there’s a whole array of spectacular new works the artists have added in recent months.
Check them out with a fat bowl of the premium flower Pacific Stone Wedding Cake, a mind-expanding Indica grown in Santa Barbara. Pacific Stone’s Wedding Cake dense nugs burn a good long time, for a high-THC experience that will give you a state of the art mural experience.
6. NIGHTCLUBS with LOWELL SMOKES PREROLLS
Club hopping is finally a thing again, as both indoor and outdoor drinking are allowed, and without that that pesky meal requirement. The most vibrant nightlife corridors in town are thumping with the sounds of DJs, live bands, and party people out bouncing from club to club.
When smoking joints on the go, the most cleverly packaged product is Lowell Smokes pre-rolls. The perfectly cigarette pack-like box comes with a fabulous magnetized lid, and the ingenious inclusion of matches and striking paper for blazing up. A “pack of smokes” like the Lowell Smokes Zen 5-Pack delivers 5 totally cigarette-resembling jays you can share before the show, or enjoy while hopping between clubs.
5. GOING TO THE MOVIES AGAIN on PUNCH BAR CHOCOLATES
All of the best movie theaters in town are either back open, or getting ready to reopen soon. The Roxie is already rocking again, SF Pride is having movie nights at the ballpark in June, the Castro Theatre will reopen for Frameline on June 26-27, and Alamo Drafhouse is expected to return in July.
You’ll want to strategically time a kick-ass edible before going to the show so it kicks in at showtime. Punch Edibles has several magnificent artisan chocolate bars with an iMAX potency of 90mg THC, but perforated so you can easily break them down into manageable 10 mg squares. We’re fans of the inventive Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter + Jelly combo, so delicious that it’s tempting to just woof that whole bar down. But it’s not recommended to eat more than one or two small squares at a time, so that small feast for your mouth delivers the best feast for your eyes, ears and and senses
Stern Grove concerts are back starting June 20, and for the next nine Sundays in a row after. Stern Grove has not yet announced the artists playing on those dates, but it’s still a good bet you’ll want to get there way before the 2 p.m. showtime for desirable seating.
Enjoy that long day’s trip to an outdoor concert with a tasty tin of microdose gummies from PLUS edibles. They’ve got a dazzling variety of flavors (including lychee!), some with mixes of other cannabinoids like CBD and CBN. There’s generally around 5 mg THC in each gummy, so the pack of 20 is perfect to power your party through their concert picnic.
3. ENJOY THE NATURAL WONDERS OF GOLDEN GATE PARK with FLOW KANA
OK so it will probably not be this crowded at Hippie Hill. But there will probably be a drum circle there, plus Golden Gate Park has the Conservatory of Flowers, the Music Concourse, a Bison Paddock, a Japanese Tea Garden, an AIDS Memorial Grove, some sweet Oak Woodlands, and windmills. There is of course no smoking in Golden Gate Park.
NorCal ‘s legend of the legal marijuana era Flow Kana has been bringing the beautiful craft bud since 2015, and their sungrown small batch flower is a California dream match for the park. Pick Apple Pie for a sativa for high-energy hiking and activity, or Blue Dream for a hybrid experience relaxing beneath the clouds.
2. PUB CRAWLING with SMOKIEZ BLUE RASPBERRY FRUIT CHEWS
When your social life has been an anti-social life for more than a year, there’s nothing like hitting the bars with your friends again. You never know what kind of parklet magic you’ll come across when you start bar hopping again, and now we can meet up inside bars too when that San Francisco “summer” weather rolls in.
Smokiez edibles aren’t smokey at all, they’re gummy-style fruit chews with exceptional flavor and 10 mg of THC in each big piece. They deliver a chatty, social buzz that puts a little tingle in your arms and shoulders, and the Blue Raspberry chews come with CBD in the mix, while Watermelon chews are infused with Delta-8 THC.
1. ON YOUR COUCH AND CHILL with STIIIZY STRAWBERRY COUGH PODS
You can achieve couchlock nirvana on nights where you just don’t want to go out, and the streaming services will carry some of the big summer Hollywood blockbusters. Cruella is on Disney+ May 28, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights hits HBO Max June 11, Black Widow comes to Disney+ July 9, and the new LeBron Space Jam lands on HBO Max July 16. There are also better movies than those just in the on-demand libraries.
Get your brain blasted on the safe and comfy confines of your own couch vaping a STIIIZY Strawberry Cough Pod, the one of the most potent pods (86.05% THC) in the STIIIZY concentrate line. These are extremely potent, and best vaped in a controlled environment. Many of these pods do require the specialized STIIIZY starter battery.
