The Best Cannabis Strains for Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving is just around the corner! For some of us (especially those who don’t have to cook or travel far), that means pure delight and a chance to see relatives we often don’t get to spend time with. For others, Thanksgiving can be the holiday from hell: travel delays, cooking disasters, epic family fights, and more! But whether you love it, loathe it, or simply don’t care, there’s one thing we can all agree on: The best way to get through the stress of judgmental in-laws, an overcooked turkey, a religious debate at the table, and everything that could go on in between is to make sure you’re blazed to the eyeballs.
And who knows? You might not be the only one in your family! Perhaps kooky aunt Vera brought her vape pen and you can toke up together in the guest bedroom! These are our top five strains to make sure you smoke on Thanksgiving Day.
Harlequin will help you deal with any holiday stress without anyone ever getting the hint that you’re high… because you won’t be. This is the perfect strain for those of us who want to take the edge off on a busy holiday without actually getting stoned. While the levels of each Harlequin sample vary, it usually produces a 5:2 ratio of CBD to THC.
#2: Sour Diesel
Make the most of seeing family you rarely spend time with by being at your social best with Sour Diesel. This Sativa is uplifting, cerebral, and relaxing and will leave you feeling talkative and friendly. You’ll feel calm, clearheaded, and pleasant.
#3: Laughing Buddha
Don’t smoke too much Laughing Buddha on Thanksgiving day; you’ll get a major case of the giggles that might give you away. As the name suggests, this Sativa induces laughter like no other strain. But if you truly want to enjoy yourself, and see the humor in every conversation, this is the strain for your happiest Thanksgiving yet.
#4: Platinum Purple Kush
What would a list of Thanksgiving strains be without one that’ll make you ready to win an episode of Man vs. Food? Platinum Purple Kush is an Indica with some Sativa-like properties, and it’s known for creating a raging appetite. Blaze some just before the meal and it’ll taste like you’re literally eating heaven. And it while it’ll definitely give you a strong body high, it won’t cause you to fall asleep quite as fast as some other appetite-inducing Indica strains.
#5: Green Crack
This is the strain for after you’ve had your meal, the tryptophan’s putting you in a food coma, but you’re not ready to pass out before pie. It’ll put you back in the game and give you that whoosh of exhilaration you need to keep from melting into the couch. Just like it’s name suggests, it’ll have you back bright-eyed and buzzing with mental energy.
As you can see, there are a variety of strains to cater to your Thanksgiving holiday, depending on what your needs are. Whether you need something for conversation, appetite, or energy, there’s a cannabis solution to make sure your Turkey Day is a wonderful one!
