Our Top 5 Weed Strains for a Great High!

Our Top-5 Strains for a Great Weed High

To those who have never smoked cannabis, there is a (mistaken) belief that there is only one high,
and it is because of that single high that people smoke cannabis.

Who wants to tell them just how wrong they are?

How do you explain why they are wrong?

Maybe we should tell them about THC and how varying levels of THC can affect the way our brain
reacts, leaving us feeling either energized, euphoric, uplifted, relaxed, or sleepy.

More to the point, THC is ‘counterbalanced by CBD, which has a more calming and sedative effect.
That is why in many instances marijuana or cannabis is illegal, but CBD, one of its constituents isn’t.

In simple terms, CBD is not a ‘psychoactive’.

Finally, there are hundreds of chemicals in marijuana, and it is the combination of some of these with THC and CBD that can ultimately create different highs, not to mention terpene levels and our own physiology.

So, perhaps we should now look at the varying strains of cannabis that are specifically associated
with a specific high.

Let’s start with Energized.

Think Green Crack. This is a legendary sativa strain dating back to the 1970s and, for obvious reasons, is well suited to daytime enjoyment.

Green Crack is also abundant in myrcene, pinene and caryophyllene terpenes, though knowing that
may leave you feeling none the wiser!

Other strains worth considering for an energy boost are Jack Herer and Durban Poison.

How about uplifted?

Sour Diesel probably takes the crown for this effect, the plant being a potent sativa-dominant hybrid.

Most prominent terpenes include myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene.
If you fancy something less well known for its uplifting effects, check out Super Silver Haze or Tangie.

Now the euphoric high takes a lot of beating, and hence the popularity of OG Kush.
Not only is the high euphoric, it is also long lasting, but it also comes with a codicil.

Where most highs leave you ultimately feeling sleepy or energized, Hindu Kush will just leave you
feeling stoned!

If you want the same high, but without the strength of OG Kush, why not try GSC or Wedding Cake

If you’ve had a stressful day, then maybe a nice relaxed high is what you need.

Look no further than Blue Dream, which will also add a hint of euphoria to the mix, thanks to this
hybrid cross of Blueberry and Haze.

Dominant in myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene terpenes, users of Blue Dream are usually easy to
spot when high, they have a great big smile on their face!
Similar effects can be achieved with Apple Fritter and Purple Punch.

Having trouble sleeping – are you suffering from insomnia?

Obviously if this is affecting your health, then you need to see a doctor.

However, if it is only a minor problem, then Grandaddy Purple could be your perfect ‘nightcap’ just
before bedtime.

This is an indica cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud and no, we didn’t say Big Bird, though it is
not uncommon to see characters from Sesame Street when you get high!
Rich in myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene terpenes, other popular sedative cannabis strains include Blackberry Kush and Bubba Kush.
