The holiday season is here again, friends. It’s a time for cheer, family, happiness, and oh yeah, a whole lot of stress. Many people will run around town, stressing out, trying to get the perfect gifts, and keeping up with the demand for holiday dinners. All this stress and strain can be a lot on the brain, triggering episodes of anxiety, chronic pain, and even depression. But don’t let the strain of the holiday season get you down. What you need to help avoid the strain might just be the perfect cannabis strain. Because cannabis strain classifications and each one’s effect are largely outdated, the only way to know what strain can help you avoid the strain of the holiday season is to give them a try. Let’s look at some of the most popular cannabis strains that help others take the strain out of the holiday season.
Indica cannabis strains are an excellent way to help relieve holiday stress because they normally contain a significant amount of the terpene Myrcene which is thought to have sedating effects. There are many potent Indica varieties of cannabis available on the legal medical and retail cannabis market today that can help you unwind, relieve pain, spike your appetite, and even help you sleep at night.
What better way to fire up the Christmas season than firing up some Christmas tree bud? These fluffy green nugs look like little, tiny Christmas trees and have a heavenly piney taste to match. This potent Indica is the perfect way to end any day during the holiday season. A few puffs of this stuff, and you’ll find yourself sinking into your favorite couch chair or possibly even hitting the sack for the night. Christmas Tree Bud is known to be very relaxing and is also known to help spike the appetite leaving consumers with a major case of the munchies. If you’re looking for a way to help gobble down holiday meals this season, check out Christmas Tree Bud.
This holiday season, you may want to look to the Northern Lights to treat you right. I’m not talking about the Aurora Borealis. I’m talking about the cannabis strain called Northern lights. This potent Indica dominant cannabis strain is known to increase the appetite, calm the nerves, and leave you feeling chilled and relaxed. If you find yourself stressed out and tired this holiday season, it’s the perfect reason to sit back and enjoy some Northern Lights.
Cannabis is known to help people relax, but that’s not all it’s good for. A good strong Sativa can be a real pleaser. Sativa varieties of cannabis are known to produce euphoric and energetic feelings in many due to the abundance of uplifting terpenes commonly found in these strains. Some Sativas are even known to help curb the appetite, which could be a major win if you’re trying to watch your figure or stick to a diet this holiday season.
Durban Poison is a landrace Sativa cannabis strain. Don’t let the scary name of this one fool you; there is nothing poisonous about it. This variety of cannabis is known to help consumers relax and unwind in their body and mind while at the same time offering much-needed motivation to help accomplish the tasks at hand. Another great reported effect of this strain is it is said to help curb the appetite rather than spiking it.
Super Silver Haze is a sweet Sativa with a winning history of first prize positions from back in ‘97, ’98, and ‘99. The strain might just have you singing Silver Bells. This combination of Northern Lights and Skunk crossed with Haze is known to produce invigorating effects that are energetic. If you’re feeling tired and need a little herbal inspiration to help you get to your day, you may choose to look the way of some Super Silver Haze.
Sometimes you need a little up and a little down to help you get around. Are you after a variety of cannabis that gets the job done? Something that can help you relax and unwind a little bit but at the same time won’t leave you feeling couch-locked and stuck floating on cloud nine? If so, this is when a hybrid variety of cannabis may suit you best. Hybrid cannabis strains combine the best of both worlds in different ratios to offer the perfect balance for you.
Jack Frost is a festive hybrid cannabis strain. This uplifting and euphoric hybrid is said to leave consumers feeling happy while helping to melt away stress, depression, and anxiety. Instead of letting Jack Frost nip at your nose and toes this holiday season, breathe him in deep and let him nip your stress away!
Vanilla Kush is another great holiday strain. This hybrid variety of cannabis is known to taste like freshly baked holiday goodies and has an average THC level of around 22%. Vanilla Kush provides a delicate balance of Indica and Sativa that helps individuals relax and unwind, but at the same time, it helps motivate people to get their much-needed tasks done.
These are only a few cannabis strains that many people find they enjoy throughout the holiday season. Most of the draw to these strains are found within the names and characteristics such as flavor and feeling they provide. Read more about the difference between strains here. Any cannabis strain could be the one to help you get through the holiday season, so go ahead and try them all!
