Weed and partying go hand in hand. I’d be hard pressed to think of a party I’ve been to where there wasn’t at least one person that was indulging in some herb. However because no two strains are alike, you’ll want to be careful of which one you choose so that you don’t end up snoozing on your couch missing out on all of the fun. Some strains lend themselves better to a fun night out so we’ve put together our recommendations for the ten best strains to party with.
These are our top picks for weed strains (in alphabetical order):
Acapulco Gold: A sativa strain so universally popular that it’s name is almost synonymous with pure happiness, this particular bud goes back a long way. Known for providing a strong, focused, creative and energizing high as well as for pain relief, it is perfect for those suffering from depression and chronic pain. Also, despite its significant potency, the high is very clear headed allowing you to channel your newfound energy as opposed to leaving you feeling scatter brained and all over the place.
Alice In Wonderland: Descended from Willy’s Wonder, it’s a strong daytime sativa popular among the wake-and-bake crowd for its significant uplifting energy. Some enthusiasts also use it to treat their depression, ADHD, stress as well as for the added motivation it brings along. The high is generally focused and without the usual racing thoughts that accompanies strong sativas, so you can still concentrate and get stuff done soon after indulging.
Chocolope: This popular strain a sativa-dominant blend of Chocolate Thai and Cannalope Haze with a beautiful shade of green and some orange hairs throughout. It provides a warm, yet not overwhelming body high that’s perfect for going out to have a few drinks with your friends.
Death Star: Possessing rich amber trichomes, the smoke has a pronounced earthiness, similar to a mellow ginger root. It is known to enhance alertness and provides a significantly energetic high that should help keep your night going when you’re starting to fade.
Great White Shark: A potent day time sativa that has a tendency to creep up on you leaving in its wake a cerebral high followed by a more pervasive body high but without the usual paranoia that would accompany a strong sativa like this one. Though best used to promote energy and stress relief, this strain will definitely keep you off of your couch.
Green Crack: The powerful and oddly named Green Crack strain is a strong daytime sativa, known to significantly boost your energy (some would say a little too much) while keeping you nice and alert. An ideal strain for long nights of fun.
Jack Skellington: A sativa originating from a crossing of the Killer Queen and Jack The Ripper strains. It provides a strong energy boost and has been known as an effective treatment for stress, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. It has also shown somewhat limited effectiveness in helping those with mild to moderate pain conditions. The high is very energetic and can help boost your creativity but is considered a predominantly “heady” high by most.
Kali Mist: A strong sativa strain known to provide a significant energy boost without the usual accompanying anxiety and lack of focus involved with similar strains. Although some consider their past experiences with it to be on the more psychedelic side of the spectrum, it is not overpowering.
White Russian: Named after The Dude’s favorite beverage, it’s a daytime hybrid born of the popular White Widow and AK-47 hybrids, that leans heavily toward the sativa side of the family. Enthusiasts love it for its energetic and euphoric qualities while it also quickly helps those suffering from anxiety, stress, and depression. The high is very focused so you can still get things done throughout the day and is also said to help spark creativity.
White Widow: A perfectly balanced (“…as all things should be.”) 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 and while it does act as a pick me up, there is no noticeable paranoia that often accompanies most energetic strains.
