Summer is nearly here, and with it are the long warm days spent outside. While cannabis is enjoyable during every season, summertime has all the makings for recreational experiences of the year. So what strains do we have at GreenLabs that are the best for the summertime? Here are the top sativa hybrid strains that we think you’ll enjoy.
Mimosa by ForwardGro
The Mimosa strain is perfect for the daytime. In small doses, this strain that produces happy, level-headed effects that will leave you feeling uplifted and motivated to tackle your day. Mimosa is a hybrid that is made by crossing Clementine with Purple Punch and patients use this strain to help relieving depression and stress. This strain has a strong aroma and flavor that reminds you of its namesake – with notes of fruit and citrus flavors bursting through.
G6 by Verano
Three, two, one – LIFT OFF! One of our favorite strains at GreenLabs by Verano is called G6, also known as Jet Fuel. G6 is a great sativa-dominant hybrid that’s more of a cerebral than physical experience. Most patients experience a jolt of energy and uplifting effects that eventually level off to provide a dream-like state of relaxation. And overtime, the muscle and joint pain will be lessened as well. Although the name G6 is an aircraft, the strain isn’t purely devoted to the sweet, pungent aroma of diesel fumes. After a day at the beach, try enjoying G6 for the clarity and energy effects, but the buzzing should tone down to a slow, relaxing rhythm, letting you doze off into a serene existence after heightened energy or productivity levels.
Forum Cookies x Aliendog by Grow West Cannabis Company
Forum Cookies x Aliendog is a great sativa leaning hybrid. It has a citrus aroma, with some spicy aroma and flavors. The high starts with a happy lift that leaves you feeling euphoric with your mind. The most common terpenes in this strain are limonene and caryophyllene. Limonene is great for relieving stress and depression and caryphyllene is great for pain-relif and inflammation. We recommend trying Forum Cookies x Aliendog, spend some time in the natural sun, and feel your anxiety wash away!
Citrus Tsunami by Rythm
Looking for another citrus forward strain for the summertime? We recommend Citrus Tsunami. This is another strain that has strong aromas of citrus and herbs and small notes of earth and musk is Citrus Tsunami. Citrus Tsunami strain is more of an cerebral high with electric buzz that gradually moves through the body and into the extremities. The creativity and focus brought on by this strain eventually give way to a relaxing body effect that won’t put you to sleep.
DSCT by Curio
The summertime is great for seeing family and friends. There’s scheduling the summer camps for the kids, planning the huge family vacation, and working on summer projects around the house. But sometimes, all that work can be stressful and there’s not a lot of free time for yourself. While DSCT is great anytime of the year, it’s a favorite sativa hybrid at GreenLabs for the summertime.
DSCT is a cross of Dark Star, Chemdawg, and Tangie. DSCT is great for mornings or during the day! With it’s earthy pine aroma mixed with tangerine, this strain is great for helping depression and anxiety with its uplifting effects. DSCT is also great for people with ADHD due to the strain ability to help keep focus and reduces stress. Could be a strain to try before dealing with the stress of planning a trip with your family for the summertime.
