On that magical day when I first discovered the beautiful weed, the only thing I had in mind was fun. I used to love getting together with my close friends to share a big joint and laugh the night away, stretching the limits of our imagination as the weed expanded the boundaries of our consciousness.
These days, in our scientific climate of yields, pest-resistance, flavor-balance and cannabinoids (my younger self didn’t know THC from the BFG) it is perhaps easy to lose sight of the genuine fun we can have with the herb.
I have put together a list of my favorite selections, great strains that are almost guaranteed to produce an evening of fun and laughter…
The Green Candy strain stems from the genetic combination of Green Crack and Candy Kush.
For those of you that are familiar with Green Crack are probably aware of it’s ability to make you bounce off the walls with energy. This strong Sativa mind-warp, mixed with the heaviness of kush (Indica-dominant) provides a near perfect 50/50 Hybrid smoke session that provides medicine for the body and mind alike.
So what do you get when you mix Green Crack (Sativa) and Candy Kush (Indica-dominant Hybrid) together? The answer: A sweet tasting, lemon-scented bud with undertones of candy skunk that eases the mind and alleviates stress.
Reserva Privada’s titillating Tangie strain is our favorite! There’s so much to love about Tangie—its awe-inspiring citrus scent, its mouthwatering orange-juice flavor, its gorgeous, frosted appearance. But what we love most is its jaw-tingling effect when blazed! This incredible specimen has won every single award she’s been entered into, and she produces some of the best-tasting concentrates on the planet. This is a plant that’ll take you straight to cannabis heaven.
Sour Diesel is famous for igniting cases of the giggles, which is ideal for such a large celebration. Sparking up this sativa-dominant strain at the biggest 4/20 event you can access will instantly land you in a great mood. It will make you extra sociable, chatty, willing to meet new people, and most of all, it will make you laugh. It’s as though Sour Diesel places a new lens over your eyes that makes almost everything appear bright, fun, and more humorous. The 30% indica genetics eventually allow this long-lasting high to taper off into a chilled body stone. This means it’s either time to go home or smoke more!
Laughing Buddha Strain
If there’s any Barney’s Farm cannabis strain whose name speaks for itself, this is the one. A calm, uplifting start can finish with a ridiculously happy buzz, and the big, bouncing buds frosted with THC crystals produce a memorably tasty smoke with hints of lemongrass and sweet, dark rum. The 450g/m2 yields aren’t half bad, either!
Kali Mistery is known to deliver clear-headed, energetic effects that can verge on psychedelic at times. Despite having an unknown genetic history, Kali Mist is believed to have originated in the 1990s through crossing two sativa-dominant hybrids. This lightweight sativa is a perfect choice for consumers looking to maintain focus and productivity throughout their day.
Brain’s Damage Strain
Third on the list is Brain’s Damage from our friends at KC Brains. Toke this badass and you’re at risk of losing your mind with laughter! What’s more, with a quick growth cycle and seriously good yields to boot, this is an all-round excellent plant and one of the giggliest giggly marijuana strains on the planet.
OG Kush is an extremely strong cannabis strain, with most experienced smokers listing it as one of their favourites. The effect is as strong physically as it is mentally. Though its effect is like an Sativa, the strain’s genetics are mostly Indica. The effect is as strong and complex as the flavour.
Maple Leaf Indica Strain
Next up is the sensual Sensi Seeds Maple Leaf Indica. Mark our words, while this might not be the most cerebral or energetic buzz out there, it’ll have you biting your knees in no time—in the best possible way, of course! This ripper is bred from precious, vintage Afghanica gene-stock, and when you see the results, you’re sure to know it!
