When developing OLO sublingual cannabis strips, we aimed to have the end result match the mood and experience that our consumers were specifically seeking. We’ve defined these experiences into four precise blends: Chill, Focus, Active, and Social. Be sure to pack your favorite, or keep your OLO QUARTET handy for the journey ahead.
First up, just an hour and a half outside of LA is the San Bernardino National Forest. Well-known, but often overlooked by Los Angeles locals, this national forest is a beautiful stop on the scenic route that you will not want to miss. With over 154,000 sprawling acres, there are plenty of trails perfect for sightseeing and to get up your heart rate up so you won’t feel too restless on the road. The reserve became a designated National Forest over one hundred years ago, which means you’ll find a plethora of old growth trees that are still standing tall today. Keep your eyes peeled specifically for the majestic Jeffrey Pine, Ponderosa, and Pacific Dogwoods. For an extra pleasant boost on your hike, try using an OLO Active sublingual cannabis strip to keep up the momentum. While the San Bernardino National Forest has trails for all skill levels, we love Cougar Crest Trail for the phenomenal views of Big Bear Lake and endless fields of wildflowers.
Next up, Joshua Tree! While Joshua Tree National Park has long been a destination for LA artists and wanderers, it’s gained popularity in recent years not only for the iconic stargazing and beautiful Mojave landscape but also for its music and bar scene. One of our favorite haunts is the 29 Palms Inn. Although it’s known for its abundance of 60s vibes, we love that the bar is stationed right next to a pool, the perfect environment for people-watching, or people meeting. For an extra spark in your conversations, try using (and sharing) our OLO Social sublingual cannabis strips to help enliven your interactions with new friends. Aside from good food and good drinks, this Inn also boasts a beautiful organic garden, a delicious restaurant, and some great nighttime views of the Milky Way. Bonus fun fact: Led Zeppelin frontman, Robert Plant, is known as a semi-regular around this bar!
If you’re more interested in the music scene Joshua Tree has to offer, we recommend stopping by Pappy and Harriet’s. Located in the small town of Pioneertown, Pappy and Harriet’s is only a short 4-mile drive from Joshua Tree, and it’s well worth it. Thanks to a very talented music booker, Pappy and Harriet’s frequently features up-and-coming acts, bound for Coachella, long before they reach the stage. Some noteworthy acts that have graced their own stage include Bright Eyes and Queens of the Stone Age. While people come for the music, they stay for the food! From classic American burgers and steaks to TexMex and simple sandwiches, you’ll be sure to find something for every appetite in this cozy restaurant and bar.
Finally, we come to Noah Purifoy’s Outdoor Desert Art Museum. Purifoy, the artist behind this sprawling 10 acres of art, spent the last 15 years of his life working on the Museum. Built in the 90s, this massive collection of art is made entirely of junked materials. Many of the structures you’ll see are massive collections of found objects transformed into something entirely new. For a different perspective into the art, try one of our OLO Focus sublingual cannabis strips, and piece together where you think these magnificent pieces came from. Try to remember to make a quick pitstop beforehand, as there’s no bathroom in this outdoor museum!
Last stop, Red Rock Canyon; the first and most glaring thing you’ll notice here are the vast and beautiful rock formations settled along the road. Tourists flock to the trails for stunning views of the mountains and plains. This desert is also home to an array of wildlife, from your common lizards to more fierce coyotes.
While hiking to see those trails is a beautiful way to spend the day, we know you’ve got somewhere to be! Our pick for getting the most out of this beautiful landscape is to take a zen moment to yourself and head down to Veterans Highway to see artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains. Magic Mountains is a beautiful public installation of colorful boulders stacked over 30 feet high, and we promise it will be an awe-inspiring moment when viewed against the vista of the natural mountains behind it. Not only is it a great time to sit back and enjoy the view, but the vivid hues of the boulders make for a jaw-dropping picture to bring with you. Try getting there early to avoid the crowds!
Rondinone said he created this installation with the idea that the Magic Mountains are both physically, and symbolically, halfway between the mountains. They are physically halfway between the Mojave mountains and the Los Angeles/Las Vegas highway, while they are also halfway symbolically in the way that they are man-made, but still collected boulders from nature. Take a quiet moment between the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and Las Vegas to appreciate the scenery, and bask in the clean, mountain air.
