5 Cannabis Strains to Get You in the Holiday Spirit

The holidays are here and we’re feeling particularly festive, so we think that our cannabis should help ring in the flavors of the season too! Whether you’re going out shopping for gifts, snuggling up by the fire, or decorating your tree, these strains are perfect to help get you in the mood. 

Christmas Tree

Perhaps the most festive strain we can share with you is called the Christmas Tree. This indica-dominant hybrid gets its name from the Christmas tree looking nuggets the plant produces. With a sweet, earthy pine aroma, this strain is perfect for any of your holiday gatherings. 

Cranberry Kush

The Cranberry Kush is another indica-dominant hybrid strain. Famous for its taste of citrus that lingers as you exhale and sweetens as you continue to smoke, this strain will give you a very relaxing high. It’s perfect to choose when you’re curled up by the fire or after a long day of mingling with family. 

Peppermint Cookies

Peppermint Cookies is a great one to choose before a big meal or maybe even dessert. With its sweet and minty flavor, you’ll be put right into the holiday spirit, and it will likely leave you relaxed and hungry. This strain won Best Hybrid at the 2015 Dope Cup in Seattle! 

White Chocolate

A sativa-dominant hybrid that would be perfect to smoke before a holiday party or family gathering would be White Chocolate. This strain is known to provoke creativity and a stimulating body buzz. Flavors vary quite a bit from melon rind or cherry to herbs and spices, but both sounds quite delicious! 

Cocoa Kush

Cocoa Kush is a hybrid 50/50 hybrid that tastes like a delicious cup of hot cocoa. It has an intensely cerebral and psychedelic onset that can be quite overwhelming if unexpected. As the high continues, you’ll slowly fall into a deep and peaceful trance-like state with a mellow relaxing body high. Upon the comedown, you’ll fall into a deep and peaceful almost immediately that lasts for hours on end.

Choosing Cannabis for Pain Relief

Cannabis for Pain

Cannabis is a natural choice for patients looking to relieve several ailments and treat serious diagnoses, but it is most commonly used for pain relief. The goal when taking anything for pain is for the patient to experience increased quality of life. This can mean many things to many people, but to us it means functioning normally with minimal pain and limited side effects. The fastest and most efficient way to initiate pain relief with Cannabis is to inhale it because it is absorbed by the body faster than taking oral medication. 

If you are currently taking pain pills for pain relief, we do not advise that you stop your prescription and start using Cannabis. Rather, we advise that you speak to your physician about how you may be able to supplement some of the pain medication with Cannabis. Doing this will allow you to slowly wean yourself off the pain medication while simultaneously treating the negative side effects that accompany cutting back on the pills. It can relieve nausea, dizziness, and provide the patient with a relaxing, uplifting experience.
