It’s pre-roll promo week here at The Farmacy Santa Ana, and as part of our Weed in the Wild month where we’re encouraging everyone to get out and enjoy nature & cannabis in the sunny spring weather.

One amazing way to get outside and get active in our area is by experiencing one of the many great hikes right in our own backyard. Discovering the best hikes in Orange County really depends on who you ask, but these are some of our favorites in a range of local areas— plus our recommendation for the best cannabis terpenes to pair with them.

Top of the World


With a name like Top of the World, you know that this hike is going to have some sweet views. The best part? You don’t have to hike straight up for miles to get there. Just 2.5 miles round-trip, this is a quick hike that gives you a full 360-degree view of the San Gabriel Mountains and Catalina Island. And if you want to skip the hiking part altogether, you can always drive to the top and park.

The Farmacy Recommends:
If you choose to hike your way up instead of parking at the top, Top of the World is best paired with a cannabis product that’s high in the terpene myrcene, which has been shown to help reduce swelling in joints and muscles as an anti-inflammatory. It can also help improve sleep quality, something you’ll definitely want to recover from your adventure later that night.

Quail Hill Loop


While no OC city tops Santa Ana, we do love Irvine’s Open Space Preserve with more than 5,200 acres of natural landscape. The best hike there is the Quail Hill Loop, an easy two-mile loop that gets you away from the busier parts of the area and gives you the chance to spot some wildlife along the way.

The Farmacy Recommends:
Quail Hill Loop is a perfect hike to boost your mood and offer some much-needed stress relief. With that in mind, we recommend you pair it with cannabis that features limonene. This terpene is known for its mood-boosting effects and ability to provide stress and anxiety relief in many consumers.

El Moro Canyon


Not too difficult and relatively short at three miles round-trip, the hike into El Moro Canyon ends at beautiful Moro Beach. You’ll start at Crystal Cove State Park for this adventure, and it’s one of the best hikes in Orange County. Want to make it a longer adventure? Do some exploring in the canyon and its ridges before you cool off in the water of the cove.

The Farmacy Recommends:
El Moro Canyon is filled with a range of beautifully fragrant old-growth trees, so why not pair it with a pre-roll high in pinene— the same terpene found in many other naturally occurring plants and herbs. Plus, you’ll benefit from the improved breathing and anxiety relief that comes from this popular terpene.

Willow Canyon Trail to Bommer Ridge


If you’re looking for a long adventure, one of our favorites is the Willow Canyon Trail to Bommer Ridge, located in Laguna Beach. It’s a challenging climb, and you’ll want to dedicate at least half the day to finishing it, but you’ll be rewarded with views that make this one of the best hikes in Orange County.

The Farmacy Recommends:
With scientifically researched anti-inflammatory benefits, an intense hike like the Willow Canyon Trail could benefit from a terpene such as caryophyllene or myrcene. Both have been shown to help reduce swelling in sore joints and muscles, and caryophyllene even helps serve as an antioxidant, too.

Modjeska Peak Trail


We love the Modjeska Peak Trail because it’s not as popular as nearby Santiago Peak, but still gets you an incredible 360-degree view of the Santa Ana Mountains and more. Plus, you get to say that you climbed 5,500 feet above sea level. That’s pretty damn high.

Speaking of high…

The Farmacy Recommends:
A relaxed, beautiful hike that’s filled with a sensory buffet for the eyes, ears, and nose deserves a cannabis strain to match. Consider something rich in a wide range of terpenes, giving you a full spectrum of aromas, tastes, and benefits as you take in the view and the natural beauty that surrounds you on all sides.
