Thanksgiving, a day that’s mostly known for eating turkey and watching football. But it can also be very stressful, so you wouldn’t be blamed for wanting to use a little cannabis to relax on Turkey Day. But what strains go best with your Thanksgiving plans?
Here are the five best strains for Thanksgiving:
1. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a strain that contains Caryophyllene, an essential oil that’s also found in most cooking spices. So Northern Lights is a perfect strain to pair with a Thanksgiving dinner, particularly if there’s a lot of spices involved.
2. Green Crack
Everyone knows eating turkey makes people fall asleep, regardless of age. But if you use the Green Crack strain before dinner, you should have enough energy to stay awake all day, even if you have seconds or thirds!
3. White Widow
Wine is often a staple at Thanksgiving dinners, and while everyone has a different recommendation of what kind of wine you should actually bring to Thanksgiving, we’re guessing you’ll see a lot of Pinot Noirs. White Widow is a strain that’s known to be great for pairing with Pinot Noirs, making it an excellent choice on Thanksgiving.
4. Sour Diesel
Like Green Crack, Sour Diesel is a strain known for providing energy. But it also has a diesel‑y taste (hence the name) that some find off-putting. But if you eat a bunch of mashed potatoes, turkey, apple pie or any other Thanksgiving food right after using Sour Diesel, the strain’s taste won’t last too long.
5. OG Kush
Like White Widow, OG Kush is a strain that’s known to pair well with Pinot Noir, a wine that also pairs well with turkey. And it’s also known to be a very relaxing strain, which will help on a stressful day dealing with family.
