Cannabis consumers have been attending music festivals for decades. No matter what the genre, cannabis has played a prominent role in shaping music culture. Whether it’s the way live music sounds after sparking a spliff or the relaxed ease that permeates the air after savoring your favorite strain, cannabis and music are a marriage we don’t want to live without.
While enjoying cannabis at a festival is fun and freeing, the long day can suddenly turn sideways depending on the crowd, your energy level and the quality of music. So how do you ensure you enjoy the most of your music-filled day? Bloom Farms is here to help you survive and thrive all day long with our very own cannabis guide for music festival season.
Wake and Bake Responsibly
The idea of starting the day with some fresh flower sounds like the best way to wake up. However, indulging in a little too much of the wrong strain can leave you groggy, tired and heading back to bed before the festival starts. If you are looking to partake in cannabis in the morning before heading to the festival, we recommend an energetic sativa like our Sour D. With equally energizing and creative cerebral effects, this sun-grown strain revitalizes mind and body to get you ready for grooving to some festival tunes. Plus, its ability to soothe physical discomfort and stressful thoughts makes Sour D perfect for helping you stay calm and at ease when navigating festival crowds.
It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint
Festivals are an all-day affair and can sometimes last an entire weekend. If you go too hard too soon, you may find yourself exhausted and unable to last the duration of the festival. Cannabis offers the optimal combination of energy, playfulness and leisure that you need to stay active and refreshed all day long. To keep your warm cannabis buzz going, we suggest the bright and bubbly Maui Wowie flower. This sativa strain induces all of the fun-loving giggles and long-lasting euphoric energy needed to dance the day and night away while providing de-stressing and pain-relieving sensations.
Coming Down is a Good Thing
Trying to relax after a chaotic 12-hour music binge can present some trouble for many festival-goers. Many concerts carry on late into the night, leaving you wired and amped up when trying to wind down. Sometimes consuming a heavy indica strain too early or too late in the night can leave you woozy or too depleted for your next day of music festivities. A hybrid strain is best for these moments when you may still want some energy for a late-night DJ set or want to begin decompressing from the long day. Our Headband hybrid strain is a classic choice to combat stressful or anxious thoughts by offering a calming euphoria and relaxed body effects. Since folks also tend to skip meals or eat less while dancing all day at a festival, Headband’s ability to stimulate the appetite and soothe headaches makes it perfect for this situation.
Know When the Party is Over
The party must eventually end, and knowing when to call it quits for a good night of sleep is half the battle. While it may be hard to say farewell to the fun, your mind and body will suffer if you don’t get proper rest. This is where the right sleep-inducing indica comes in handy. Our delectable Chocolate Truffle indica flower is a sleepy strain made for a sweet stupor that will meld you to the couch, complete with a full body buzz paired with a relaxed, meditative mood. In addition to its naturally relaxing effects, this indica is often sought after to offset stressful feelings, poor sleep and anxious thoughts. It’s a delicious way to end your night and welcome sweet dreams.
