Hey folks! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer thus far. With the Cobourg Waterfront Festival behind us, one might wonder what to do with the rest of their sunshiny days before the fall arrives to choke summer out and herald the arrival of colder weather. This is especially true if you’re a consumer of cannabis who dabbles in the more cerebral and adventurous sativa side of things as opposed to the couch locking indica end of the spectrum. So, this week we’re going to take a look at the top three fun things to do in the Cobourg area after or while consuming your favorite weed product. Remember folks, if you’re consuming publicly to only consume in areas where it’s legal to do so and away from children.
The Main Attractions
First of all, to clarify, I’m not trying to be biased against indica smokers in the writing of this blog through my prior implication that this was written with a sativa-head in mind. Traditionally indica smokers are more likely to spend their time eating corn chips and binge-watching Animal Planet than they are to spend their day climbing a tree and gazing out over the wide blue yonder. That being said, I’ve spoken to several people who smoke indica based products and end up with extra pop in their step, so there are exceptions.
Anywho! Let’s take a look at some of the great stoner activities our little feel-good town provides!:
One of the first one that should come to mind is one of the things that makes Cobourg famous: our beautiful waterfront area. One of the best things to do on a warm summer day or a cool evening is consuming some cannabis and taking a nice long walk along the beach. Speaking of nice long walks, Cobourg is home to some of the best hiking trails around, including Lucas Point Park, a beautiful waterfront trail and park area that can help you get back in touch with nature. Take some advice and pair your outdoor time with a sativa strain like Blue Dream to drag your inner hippy to the surface. It’ll have you speaking to flowers and making friends with chipmunks in no time.
Next up, some of the most fun I’ve ever had whilst high has involved some kind of theatrical display, and small-town theater is surprisingly awesome; whether you’re high or not. Thankfully, if I ever need my theater fix I can always hop skip over to our neighbor town of Port Hope and spend an afternoon or evening taking in a show at the Capitol Arts Center (aka Capitol Theater for all of us old school Co-Ho peeps). If you haven’t been there yet, it’s a beautiful venue that’s renowned for its classic look and excellent shows which are put on by the many talented people who call this area home. I highly recommend pairing this little adventure with a strain like Animal Face, which will keep you focused and relaxed while you take in the show!
Finally, probably one of the best things to do in Cobourg while you’re flying high and loving life is to eat at one of the many excellent local restaurants. Cobourg is blessed in many ways, and eatery options is one of them. Sure, we have the typical fast-food options (and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with smashing six back-to-back Whoppers, no matter how many dirty looks my wife gives me.) but the true culinary delights in this corner of the world are local places you can’t find anywhere else. For some awesome examples, check out The Buttermilk Café, The Craft Food House or the Harbor Delights which is located right by the waterfront. These are just a few of the many awesome food options Cobourg and area provides. As far as what to pair with that experience weed wise, the options are pretty open. Many strains of cannabis stimulate appetite and increase our ability to appreciate flavors. That being said, one of the best munchy stimulators is the ol’ classic Girl Scout Cookies.
Those are my top three ways to spend your time whilst high in the Cobourg/Port Hope area! If there’s an activity or place you want to give a shout out to, let us know in the comments!
