Which Strain for Which Mood?

Marijuana dispensaries in Denver, Los Angeles, and other major cities where weed is legal offer a seemingly endless variety of strains to choose from. Whether it’s an indica, sativa, or hybrid ounce deal you’re looking for, you are most likely to have recreational deals for multiple strains in each category. Choosing the right strain to fit your mood doesn’t have to be a guessing game with a little know-how. Here are the Savvy Stoner’s personal favorite strains to fit your mood.

Creative: Jack Herer is the strain to choose when you’re feeling creative. Sativa-dominant, it won’t make you too sleepy to actually carry out all the brilliant ideas that are bound to spring to mind after you smoke some.

Courageous: Ready for an exciting night out on the town, or need a little boost of willpower to face a challenging situation? Sweet-tasting and sativa-dominant, Golden Goat is the strain to choose whenever you need to feel courageous.

Joyful: Are you wanting to leave your worries behind and simply be, perhaps enjoying a day in the sunshine? Blue Dream will lighten your mood and have you feeling calmly content and upbeat in no time. A cross between Blueberry and Haze, Blue Dream is a hybrid that can lean more towards the sativa side or indica side depending on the lineage of the specific plant, growing conditions, and other factors.

Thoughtful: Feeling introspective and thoughtful? Orange Kush is the strain to turn your funk into an opportunity for productive and enjoyable contemplation and exploration. Whenever my thoughts become cyclical, I smoke some Orange Kush to turn it around. A hybrid strain with high potency, Orange Kush will transform your thinking in a positive way that brings fresh insight to the situation.

Exhausted: Are you absolutely drained and exhausted, ready for a little rest and relaxation? Northern Lights is the strain that will bring you the comfort and deep whole-body, whole-mind relaxation you desire. It’s an indica strain that’s become a legend for its potent effects.

Energetic: Whenever I’m getting a lot of stuff done and I want to get high without putting my productivity to an end, I choose Green Crack. This sativa strain is great for keeping you energized, happy, and engaged.

Angry: When my temper is flaring and I know I need to cool down, Blackberry is a strain I enjoy. Deeply calming and relaxing, Blackberry can make me forget why I was so mad in the first place, or at least become too lazy or lighthearted to argue anymore. Either way, this strain brings the peace. An indica-dominant cross between Black Domina and Raspberry Cough, it has a strong, fruity flavor that’s very unique.

Sad: If you’re feeling sad and you just want to get very stoned and feel better, Sour Diesel is a great strain to choose. A sativa-dominant hybrid, Sour Diesel will give you a fresh perspective and completely transform your mood in a flash.

Romantic: If you’re in the mood for romance, consider Pineapple Express. It’s a hybrid strain with a nice tropical flavor that will have you feeling euphoric, relaxed, and dreaming of romantic days on the beach.

What’s your favorite strain?

To discover more about which strains are right for different moods, it can be fun to keep a journal detailing what strains you smoke and their effects. Everyone reacts differently, so it’s only by observing your own moods and behaviors that you’ll know exactly how different marijuana strains affect you. Whenever you’re about to smoke, write down a few words about the mood you are in, how you are feeling and what you are thinking about. Write down the strain of marijuana and how much you smoked. Wait a few minutes for the effects of the herb to kick in, then again write down a few words about your current mood, describing your thoughts and emotions. Over time, you will be able to see which strains produce the most desirable effects to suit your every mood.

Top Strains in Colorado

Without further ado, here are our top strains that you can find here in Colorado.

​​99 Problems

“If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems”

Gotta stop you right there, Mr. Z, is it? Or can I just call you Jay? We’ve already got it!

99 Problems is a sativa-dominant strain being the result of breeding Stardawg and White 99. The strain tends to bathe those who live wildly in the strong aroma of sweet fruit/berries. 99 Problems blasts through your senses with positivity, energy, and a grand boost of focus.  This potent strain often hits between 28-30% THC. 

Let it be known, 99 Problems is not for beginners.  

Afghan Kush

The awesome strain needs no introduction!

Afghan Kush is known for being a pure indica strain that can be traced for centuries. The strain is known for having body heavy effects which allow the consumer peace of mind and possibly a visit from the sleep fairy.

Afghan Kush manages sleeplessness in canna-newbies who might be more prone to paranoia when trying to unwind. This comes from the high yield of CBD in the strain.

With a homely earthy aroma and taste notes of old-school hash, Afghan Kush shows proud lineage through dense buds and many shiny trichomes.

Blue Walker

Blue Walker is the beautiful hybrid of the strains Blue Dream and Skywalker OG. This force-yielding strain is almost a pure sativa at 90%. THC percentages tend to stick to 26-30%.

Blue Walker will grant you a long-lasting buzz of euphoria. The strain is known to help with anxiety, pain, depression, nausea, and stress

Bruce Banner #3

AKA The Incredible Hulk is the strain many consumers seek after. The strain has effects of euphoria and happiness, that come quite quickly.  With THC levels between 23-26%, it is easy to see why Mr. Banner is gaining popularity.

Bruce Banner #3 is a sativa dominant hybrid being a cross of  Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush. BB #3 is known for being incredibly relaxing. The sativa head high achieves euphoric greatness, with allowance for creativity and boosting mood. The strain is nice and sweet, with flavors of citrus. 

Chocolate OG

Chocolate OG is an indica dominant strain and is well known for its highly relaxing chemical structure. Chocolate OG is the immaculate cross with Chocolate Rain (Also sounds awesome) and True OG. THC percentages in this strain come close to 30%. 

Chocolate OG delivers flavors with cheesiness and hazelnut but lingers with cocoa aromas. The buds in this strain are nicely capped with icey trichomes. The chocolatey goodness allows you to fall into a euphoric/giggly sensation. 

Chocolate OG effects help to reduce pains, aid in combating insomnia, and other health-filled benefits. Come try this, the Willy Wonka in you is screaming.

Green Crack

Let it be known, you will not become a Dave Chappel skit. Green Crack is only pure energizing sativa. No trace of crack here, whew…

Green Crack is the definition of pure energy, focus, and fun-having good times. Green Crack has incredible cerebral effects and maintains its awe through mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors. Green Crack is a great daytime strain helping fight fatigue and stress. Green Crack is extremely appealing to those needing to get stuff done and have fun doing it.

Grease Monkey

This is an Indica-dominant weed strain resulting from a cross between Gorilla Glue and Cookies and Cream marijuana strains. It is the highest THC percentage flower on our list, with a whopping value of 31%. This value can significantly vary depending on the growth conditions, as already stated.

Grease Monkey has a strong aroma of nutty vanilla and skunky diesel. When smoke, the high effect builds behind the eyes and then spreads to the rest of the body. It drives you to a euphoric high characterized by mental calming effects. Medicinally, this strain is a remedy for chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite, etc.

Hell's OG

Hell’s OG buckles down with a heavy, indica dominant breed of the strains Blackberry and OG Kush. Hell’s OG sounds scary at first, but ends up being a citrus flavored, candy-coated treat.

Hell’s OG is known for its psychoactive effects. The strain is well-known to destress consumers from mind and body, allowing for some timeless bliss. Hell's OG has been used to treat PTSD and insomnia. First-timers beware. This stuff is awesomely potent.

Ice Cream Cake

This is a tasty treat I was able to try recently. Almost as relaxing as ice cream on a hot day.

Ice Cream Cake produces large, dense nuggets of golden green. Ice Cream Cake is the cross of Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. The strain mirrors flavors of vanilla for pure delight. The aroma is a classic skunky one. You can expect your sesh to encounter body relaxation and ease you into dreamland.

Jungle Cake

Ohh! More cake! Just remember, in terms of marijuana, anytime you see cake...get it!

Jungle Cake is the cross of the strains Wifi and Wedding Cake. The strain struts in with light smells of sugar/frosting with pungent fuel.

Jungle is also another on the list to reach up to 30% THC potency. The strength ensures a lasting, powerful high.

Sour Diesel

And last, but most certainly not least. A legendary favorite. Sour Diesel, the popular sativa that just doesn’t slow down. Sour Diesel is a perfect addition to a day of adventure. Sour diesel is a long-lasting strain that will leave you stress-free and relieve any pains you may have.
