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. If you need to find marijuana deals so you can afford to do a little more experimentation, look on CannaSaver for the newest marijuana deals from dispensaries near you.

This strain is great for reducing stress while keeping you productive, thanks to its adequate Sativa levels. The pungent smell of this strain is what gives this beloved strain its name.

AK-47 is a hybrid strain that is known for relaxing the mind and body. It’s said to produce a ‘mellow’ feeling despite its somewhat violent name.
