The holiday celebrations are upon us and this time of year often calls for lots of hours spent shopping, hanging out with family, indulging in sweets, hazelnut cream, hot chocolate, Christmas trees and decorating the house. Some people live for the holiday season, while others couldn’t care less and are more of a Grinch (you know the one). Even if you are the festive type and love watching Christmas movies and drinking eggnog in bed, you may still need an extra push to get through the extended time spent with in-laws and dealing with that crazy aunt. For others, this year may be extra difficult since they are unable to spend it with loved ones. Marijuana can be the pick-me-up you need to tackle those holiday woes. We’ve created a cannabis industry list of some of the best weed strains for holidays to get you through the home stretch of 2020.

For killing it at last-minute gift shopping

Space Jill strain

For a jolt of energy to get you going, grind up some Space Jill. This bud smells of mango and sweets just like its parent strain, Space Queen. Smoke up before heading out on last minute errands and you’ll have precision focus to get the job done quick. This strain also promotes creativity, so it’s a good choice to smoke before making DIY gifts , decorating the tree, or preparing Christmas dinner. Be careful not to over do it though since this potent 70% sativa strain can quickly make you paranoid.

Red Haze strain

This weed strain is known for its burst of energy, which is often compared to drinking a morning cup of Joe. Pack a bowl of Red Haze and get ready to relieve stress and have a busy day checking off the shopping list and wrapping up those gifts in time for the big day.

For stress-free socializing and having fun

3 Kings strain

Nope, we’re not talking about Balthasar, Melchior, and Gaspar. This cannabis strain is named after the 3 kings of pot, Headband, Sour Diesel, and OG Kush, which gave rise to this potent sativa-dominant hybrid. If you’re on the brink of losing your cool after one too many “so when are you going to get married” comments, then this is the strain for you. All your worries will float away after you’re just a few hits deep, plus you won’t be heavily sedated and can continue enjoying the festivities.

Purple Voodoo strain

This super dank flower is a near equal hybrid strain with both a high THC and CBD content for well-balanced effects. One of the best cannabis strains for anxiety medicinal patients rave about the relaxed feeling that still allows the smoker to have a clear mind, making it perfect for high-stress situations and socializing. Its complex flavor features a little bit of everything, from sweet to spicy to earthy notes.

Bubble Gum strain

The highly sought after Bubble Gum is a hybrid strain known for its sweet, fruit-like flavor profile and ultra sweet bubble gum scent. Smokers will be left happy, uplifted, and euphoric with full body relaxation and pain relief that’s perfect for those suffering from body chronic pain. It’s a great daytime strain that will keep your body at ease and your mind alert so you can still take part in intellectual conversations.

A few strains for socializing: Ice Cream, Blue Hawaiian

To get in the holiday mood

Pine OG strain

From the pungent scent of pine needles that are reminiscent of winter walks through the forest to the sticky “snow” covered buds, nothing screams the holidays like a hit of Pine OG. This mysterious strain is thought to be a phenotype of OG Kush and somehow related to the very rare Christmas OG. The beautiful smell is thanks to the unique terpene profile that’s high in pinene, a chemical compound also found in coniferous trees like firs, pines, and redwoods.

Jack Frost strain

Grab your favorite vape and let the winter weather take a hold with icy hits of Jack Frost. This sativa dominant strain helps with stress, depression, and fighting the winter blues. Smoke some of Uncle Jack to relax during your Christmas morning wake and bake to get into the holiday spirit and set a positive, uplifting tone for the day.

Other Christmas relaxing strain: SFV OG, Candy Cane

For unwinding by the fireplace or watching a last-minute Christmas movie

Wedding Cake strain 

Summer is often called wedding season, however you’ll find yourself happy to indulge in the wedding cake strain at any time of year. As an indica-dominant hybrid, you’ll feel calming, relaxed effects take over so you can decompress after the holiday rush. This sticky strain often contains upwards of 23% THC, so it can easily knock you out if you aren’t careful.

Cherry Pie strain 

The child of two greats, Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison, Cherry Pie definitely has a place at Christmas dinner. It’s just the strain you need if spending the holidays alone or after a tough day. Take a bath, snuggle up by the fire, or turn on your favorite holiday movie to watch high. You’ll get the sour, tart taste of cherry and just a touch of sweetness to balance it out, plus it smells amazing.
