The Best Strains for Every New Year's Mood
New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection, celebration, and inebriation, but if you’re one of the millions of cannabis consumers that’d rather forego the champagne and reach for some beautiful bud instead, this list is for you. Pick up these strain suggestions to help ring in the new year right. So long, 2016!
The Champagne of Cannabis
Lavender and Larry OG are both nuanced Kush cuts that will naturally complement joyous cheers and the clinking of crystal flutes. The subtle euphoria and introspective mental haze give a calm, collected air to the consumer looking to play it cool while striding positively into the New Year.
The Party Monster
Trainwreck is an exhilarating strain that fits nicely with strobe-lit dance floors and thumping house parties. Its stimulating buzz will invigorate the body while its pungent odor will have fellow partygoers asking, “If we didn’t start the fire, who brought it?”
The Non-Plussed Homie and/or Stay-At-Home Don
Some folks aren’t into the whiz-bang and fanfare of New Year’s Eve and would rather stay at home. For a stimulating and lucid buzz that will keep you off the couch, snap off some Jack Herer and get a head start on a project you’ve been putting off. Or, if you’d rather cuddle up in front of the TV and chill your way into 2017, open up some Pre-98 Bubba Kush to seriously mellow the vibe.
Die 2016! Kill It with Fire!
GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies), Superman OG, Grape Ape, Jilly Bean, Sunset Sherbet, Lemon OG, MK Ultra, and Sour Diesel should thoroughly numb or uplift your spirits (depending on the strain, of course) and hopefully help you forget that 2016 even occurred. Personally, I’m going to get every single one of these strains and consume them all until the dumpster fire filled with political hate-speak and dead celebrities that is 2016 is nothing but smoldering embers.
Lest we think that this past year had nothing positive going for it, remember that 2016 was a massive win for the medical and adult-use cannabis consumer:
- Eight new states joined the legal cannabis movement
- The DEA finally allowed hard scientific research into the “potential” medicinal benefits of cannabis
- Organic and veganic growing methods gained popularity and helped breeders and producers win awards for quality and purity
These facts indicate the change our industry has undergone and continues to undergo. And no matter what strain you choose to enjoy or medicate with on the cusp of the new year, a new presidency, and a new era in cannabis, cheers, from our joint to yours.
