Winter is beautiful here in Colorado. It’s the best time to head into the mountains and enjoy fresh, powdery snow. Whether you want to ski in it, snowboard, or just take in views of the winter wonderland while you enjoy a hot drink, the fresh snowfall is awesome. Still, there’s something special about the spring, when everything starts to thaw.
Spring in Colorado is a season of rebirth. Streams gurgle with a bit more vigor, plants begin to perk up, and flowers seem to bloom just about everywhere. Of all the beautiful flowers in Colorado, the cannabis flower may be our favorite. Of course, it’s typically grown inside to ensure consistent quality regardless of season, but the spring is just as good a time as any to enjoy it.
With spring break approaching, you may be looking for the ideal strain to enhance your experience. Given the state of things now in the spring of 2021, you may be planning a relaxing time lounging around. Alternatively, you and your roommates, close friends, or family may be looking to turn up the energy a bit as you celebrate the changing seasons.
No matter what you have in mind for spring break (or the spring season in general), our budtenders have some ideas to help you find a strain that will appeal to you. Check out the following list to find 10 of our favorite strains for the coming months. With such a diverse selection, you should be able to find something for just about any type of occasion.
1 – Blueberry Headband
Spring is the ideal time to get outside and enjoy nature, and Blueberry Headband makes a great companion for your next excursion. Also known as Blue Headband, this strain has become associated with a euphoric rush that pairs beautifully with a sense of relaxation throughout the body. Many of our patients say it makes them feel relaxed but not incapacitated.
This dreamy state is often defined by enhanced pleasure and mental clarity, which makes it ideal for taking in all of the natural beauty Colorado has to offer. This is one of the go-to options for people who want to feel cheery and bright this spring. Just make sure you don’t try any outdoor activities that are too ambitious, physically demanding, or potentially dangerous because this strain does pack a punch.
2 – Harlesin High CBD Strain
This strain is the product of crossing the legendary Harlequin Strain with a relaxing ACDC plant, and it’s famous for its high CBD to THC ratio. This might make it appealing to those who are looking for a laid-back, relaxing spring break but don’t necessarily want to get very intoxicated. Harlesin is popular among people who want to smoke throughout the day while still getting a good deal done.
High-CBD strains have a reputation for inspiring states of clear-headed relaxation without a hazy high that makes your brain feel a little bit fuzzy. Strains like this are also popular among people who have high THC sensitivities, so consider giving it a try if you’re prone to paranoia.
3 – Corleone Kush
Corleone Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain, though some people report feeling an initial burst of energy because of its high THC levels. All things considered, though, this strain might make you feel like you’re wearing cement shoes if you take one too many puffs. It’s only appropriate since this strain is named after the Godfather, after all. The good news is that you’re likely to wake up from your nap feeling refreshed, so it won’t leave you to sleep with the fishes.
4 – Junkyard Dawg
This sativa dominant hybrid is a relatively new strain in the grand scheme of things, and it only started making its rounds in Colorado within the last few years. It’s already getting quite a following, though, thanks in large part to its strong cerebral effects. It’s also known for producing a pleasant body buzz that people say gives them a warm and fuzzy feeling all over. It might be nice on a brisk spring day spent outside.
5 – Rotten Cherries
This indica dominant hybrid is the result of crossing GMO Cookies and Cherry Cookies. It’s known for its potent aroma, which, as the name suggests, has notes of sour cherries. Rotten Cherries typically come in dense, frosty buds with purple hints. Our customers often say it makes them feel happy, relaxed, and hungry.
6 – Chem Dawg
Sometimes referred to as Chemdawg or Chemdog, this strain has gotten a lot of attention within the last few years, and with good reason. This strain has some serious kick, which might not make it the best bet if you’re not sure how you normally respond to strains with high THC levels. Those who are looking for something extra to spice up their spring break might fall in love with this strain, though. It’s a fairly balanced hybrid with a reputation for delivering potent cerebral effects along with a heavy body high.
7 – Glueball
There are few strains that are better suited for a relaxing experience than Glueball is. It gets legendary genes from such strains as Chem Dawg, The White, and OG Kush, so you know this one has been carefully cultivated. Expect it to smell like pine, citrus, and straight diesel. As far as effects go, this one leans heavily to the calming side.
8 – Jack Frost
If the idea of relaxing with Glueball for an entire week sounds too uneventful for you, Jack Frost might be more your speed. It pulls genetics from strains like White Widow and Northern lights to create a creative, energetic, cerebral experience. This is the kind of strain people by when they want to feel happy and excited about life.
9 – Sex Grenade
Here’s another good strain for daytime. The taste and flavor are citrusy and refreshing, as are the effects. Expect to have plenty of energy and a serious case of giggles.
10 – Miracle Alien Cookies
Also known as simply MAC, Miracle Alien Cookies has a complex flavor that includes notes of orange, flowers, and some earthy tastes. These resinous buds are often coated with a thick dusting of shiny trichomes, which should give you some idea about their potential THC potency.
