Taking the Edge Off the Holidays With Cannabis
There’s a lot to enjoy about the holidays, but it can be stressful too. Whether you’re surviving a family get-together or buying countless presents for your loved ones, you probably have a lot on your mind. Plus, now that the weather is getting colder — and the nights longer — it’s getting harder to shake off the winter blues.
That’s where cannabis can help. You may want a strain to help you relax and unwind after a long day with family. Or you might need something energizing and adventurous to get in the mood for holiday festivities. Whatever the occasion, there’s a strain that can help.
6 Strains to Try This Holiday Season
This holiday season, there’s never been a better time to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Why not start with a cannabis strain you’ve never tried before — or even better, one you haven’t heard about yet?
So whether you’re looking to relax on the couch for a Christmas movie marathon or enjoy a clear-headed buzz with friends and family, there’s a strain for everyone.
Without further ado, here are six exciting strains to try for the holidays.
With a sweet, fruity, and sugary flavor, Midnight can bring high-flying energy to any holiday activity.
This strain offers a calming body high along with a sharp euphoria, giving you a burst of mental energy and creativity. It’s perfect for getting things flowing when enjoying a social moment with family and friends. Or you can dip into this train for creative play, like making a DIY wreath or drawing a holiday card.
2. Mandarin Cookies
Of course, the list wouldn’t feel complete without a cookie-themed strain. For anyone who wants a sweet but bold flavor with an energetic high, Mandarin Cookies will get you there — and beyond. This sativa-dominant strain packs a powerful punch with a rush of euphoria, creativity, and energy.
This strain pairs perfectly with anyone who needs to put a kick in their Christmas planning or needs some extra motivation to make the most of those outdoor winter activities.
3. Royal Jack Auto
This strain was practically made for Christmas Day. Royal Jack Auto strikes the right balance between relaxation and euphoria. With a spicy aroma and an upbeat vibe, it makes holiday cheer easier than ever before.
Royal Jack Auto keeps you relaxed without gluing you to the couch, making it perfect for all-day activities. Whether you’re prepping Christmas dinner, stringing up lights, or relaxing with a glass of wine, this strain is perfect for someone who just wants a low-key buzz to light up the holidays.
4. Frozen Pines
It isn’t just in the name — this strain has incredible winter vibes. With a woody pine flavor and a hint of spiced citrus, it’s hard not to think of the holidays when smoking Frozen Pines.
While this strain has all the holiday aromas and flavors, it’s best for someone looking to unwind at the end of a long day. When festivities have gotten the best of you, Frozen Pines is the perfect soothing indica strain to lull you to sleep for a restful night, so you can get right back to it the next morning.
5. Critical Kush
As a cross between the infamous Critical Mass and OG Kush strains, Critical Kush is an indica-heavy hybrid that brings a gradual body high. With slow sedation and a hazy feeling of relaxation, this strain is best used before watching Christmas movies on the couch or to chill after a holiday party.
Although it has a touch of sativa, don’t be surprised if you’re ready to curl up with a warm blanket and sleep after this strain has worked its magic.
6. G13 Skunk
As an evenly balanced hybrid — half indica and half sativa — G13 Skunk boasts a lifted euphoria that pushes away negative thoughts. That uplifted, happy feeling gradually gives way to a heavy physical high, dropping you into a state of clear-headed sedation.
This strain is perfect for eating way too many cookies after holiday dinner and chilling on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate.
Choosing the Right Cannabis Product
Depending on what you want to get out of the experience, flower isn’t your only option for holiday cannabis products.
With that being said, flower can be a great choice when you have a chance to slip outdoors, especially if you’re around friends or family who might also want to partake. Smoking can be just as much of a social activity during the holidays. It also gives you the chance to hone in on a specific strain to get the effect you’re looking for.
If you’re at an indoor occasion, however, or around family members who don’t smoke, it might help to choose a non-smoke option. Cannabis products like edibles and tinctures are also fast-acting and long-lasting, which means they might hit you harder for a few hours or more.
Some edible products are especially subtle and easy to pop in your mouth during a quiet moment, like these balanced THC/CBD peppermint bites. Or you can opt for something more discreet than a joint, like a flavorful disposable vape. Whatever your holiday night looks like, there’s a product to make it happen.
