With Thanksgiving only a short week away, we’ve put together a list of some of the best strains that enthusiasts can enjoy during the holiday. These strains are guaranteed to help you get through all of the parties, increase your appetite, and keep you relatively sane while you deal with family!
Alaskan Thunder F*ck:
Alaskan Thunder F*ck (also referred to as ATF, Matanuska Thunder F*ck, or Matanuska Tundra) is a legendary sativa dominant strain originating in the Matanuska Valley area of Alaska. According to the myth, it was originally a Northern California sativa crossed with a Russian ruderalis, but sometime in the late 70s it was crossed with Afghani genetics to make it a little heartier. ATF presents large, beautifully frosted buds with incredibly strong odors that tend to blend well with the usual Thanksgiving aromas that we all know and love.
Berry White is a popular indica dominant hybrid combination of Blueberry and White Widow known for its significant relaxing, euphoric, and pain relieving effects. The high is pretty strong but manageable and is considered to be relatively anxiety free, so while it’s a great night time choice you can also enjoy it during turkey day without ending up glued to your couch or going back to bed to sleep it off (unless you have a little too much to eat).
Blue Dream is a sativa dominant hybrid that can be found in most dispensaries. It offers a mild euphoria and a strong feeling of relaxation. Some would consider Blue Dream to be the perfect strain to smoke between dinner and dessert, to prevent you from getting into a deep food coma.
Super Lemon Haze:
Super Lemon haze is a delicious and pungent cross of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze that is relatively easy to cultivate and often produces a significant harvest. This is another daytime strain perfect for the wake and bake crowd to get their days started with plenty of energy and motivation but without loosing too much focus.
A perfectly balanced hybrid born from the South American sativa and South Indian indica strains. Notorious for its energy and euphoric qualities, some consider it to be superb medicine for those struggling with depression as well as excellent pain relief. It is also known for treating stress, depression and lack of appetite without the usual feelings of paranoia that can often accompany energetic strains. If you’re antisocial or an introvert, and the thought of going to a Thanksgiving party makes you queasy, a little White Widow will treat you right!
Straight from the murky swamps of Dagobah, check out our review for the Yoda OG strain. An indica as strong as its legendary Jedi namesake, it is known to provide very effective pain and anxiety relief as well as increased appetite. But, make no mistake, it can ultimately hit you like a ton of bricks leaving you planted on your couch for hours on end so you will want to tread lightly or you may sleep through dessert!
