Winter is approaching fast, and the holiday season is almost upon us. It’s nearly time for decking the halls, baking festive treats, and getting together with friends and family. The right holiday weed strains can help you take things up another notch and make your winter celebrations even better.
What Makes a Great Holiday Weed Strain?
One way to find the best holiday weed strain is to look for cultivars to help you achieve specific goals. For example, if you want something for decorating the house or baking Christmas cookies, a creative strain can help get you in the festive spirit. Want to de-stress after loud, crowded holiday parties? A relaxing indica may prove to be the perfect solution.
Another option is to consider terpenes. Some scents, such as cinnamon, cloves, mint, and pine, are more popular during the holidays. Strains high in the terpenes responsible for these aromas are excellent options to enjoy in winter.
There are also plenty of weed strains with festive or wintry names. Just be sure to check their cannabinoid and terpene profiles first to ensure they’re a good fit for your needs.
5 Holiday Weed Strains to Try This Season
Without further ado, here are some great Christmas weed strains — and New Year’s weed strains — to try this winter:
With its sweet, blueberry aroma, Pancakes is reminiscent of a warm, delicious Christmas breakfast. However, despite its name, this particular strain isn’t one you may want to start your day with. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid that can help you calm down and relax, making it ideal for unwinding after a day of holiday festivities.
Looking for an early Christmas morning pick-me-up without the risk of a hangover? Then Mimosa may be the strain for you. It has all the sour, orange-y, citrus notes of a traditional mimosa without the alcohol. A cross between Purple Punch and Clementine, this sativa-dominant strain uplifts, relaxes, and boosts creativity, brightening your world and helping you to face the day ahead.
Let’s face it: New England winters can be harsh. Between the cold temperatures and snowfall, it’s no wonder some people choose to travel south during this time. You might not be able to follow suit, but you can pretend you’re escaping to warmer climates with Snowbird. With a unique flavor profile featuring notes of vanilla, pepper, and butter, this tasty strain can leave you feeling uplifted and relaxed.
4. Frosty Fish
Okay, we’ll admit this one is a bit different, but hear us out. Frosty Fish combines the heavy, relaxing buzz of Boss Frost with the creative, uplifting high of Fish Piss, producing a truly unique and well-balanced experience. Add to that its wintry aroma, which features notes of earth, citrus, and pine, and you have a great, well-rounded strain for the holiday season.
5. Jack Herer
One sniff and you’ll know why Jack Herer found its way onto this list of winter weed strains. With notes of pine and citrus, the scent of this popular sativa-dominant hybrid transports you to the middle of a winter forest. The best part, however, is that you don’t have to deal with the snow or freezing temperatures!
