5 Cannabis Strains to Help You Stay Warm This Winter

BRRRRRR! It’s cold out there, fellow canna-fans! And it’s only the beginning…

Winter didn’t officially start until December 21. Just wait until February. Then we’re really going to have something to complain about.

Staying warm is essential during these chilly and perilous times. So crank up the heat, layer up with some sweaters and long johns, and try these five cannabis strains to help you stay warm this winter!

1. Super Lemon Haze

Hot lemon tea is a good way to warm yourself up.

And speaking of lemons, we also recommend Super Lemon Haze to help you take the edge off that early morning freeze.

It took home the 1st Place prize at the High Times Cannabis Cup two years in a row, and later picked up the 1st Place prize at the IC 420 Growers Cup.

Its citrusy-lemon / earthy flavor combined with its 20% – 25% THC level will blast away the cold, filling you with the kind of energy you’d expect from the summertime sun!

Ah, summer. It may be a few months away, but Super Lemon Haze will keep you strong, warm, and steady in the meantime!

2. Banana OG

The holiday season is arguably the most stressful time of the year. Couple that with the fact that so many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, and you’re looking at a recipe for some intense winter blues.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by cold temperatures, stress, and depression, you may need a little Banana OG.

It’s a cross between OG Kush and Banana Kush, and it boasts a THC level between 20% – 25%. The result? You’re going to be feeling SUPER relaxed and euphoric.

Plus, it tastes like banana. What more can you ask for?

3. Jack Herer

To be honest, we recommend Jack Herer no matter what time of the year it is!

But with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) running high during the winter, you may want to pay extra close attention to this powerhouse sativa strain.

A quick note about SAD: those of us living in the Southwest can still be affected by it despite the fact that we get a ton of sulight exposure out here.

That’s partly because SAD is tied to our genetics as well as our natural attunement to the changing seasons. If you used to live in a different part of the country, and you struggled with SAD, chances are you’ll still have to contend with it even after moving to a place like Las Vegas.

But Jack Herer could be a potential game-changer because of its ability to alleviate depression, improve focus, and enhance creativity. So give it a try if you’re feeling cold, down, and out!

4. Burkle

The heater’s broken. Time to layer up. Coats, blankets…you name it!

But there’s another problem. Your joints are aching like crazy. Maybe it’s arthritis, or it could be that old knee injury that always feels worse when it’s cold.

So now you’re digging through your medicine cabinet, looking for something to help you get rid of the pain.

Look no further than Burkle.

Forget the fact that it sounds like the noise your throat makes when you drink too much soda and it goes down the wrong pipe. Burkle is a 2016 Cannabis Cup Winner, a combination of Granddaddy Purple and Bubba Kush.

With a THC level of 19% – 20%, this incredible indica will flood your brain with pure bliss and melt away all the pain and tension in your body.

5. Sour Tsunami

Sometimes, we want to tackle our anxiety, pain, and winter depression without getting completely blazed.

So if you’re looking for a non-psychoactive “tsunami of relief,” our final recommendation is Sour Tsunami.

Highlights? Earthy-diesel aroma. It only contains between 8% – 10% THC. And it has high levels of the non-intoxicating cannabinoid CBD, which means you’ll experience the powerful, beneficial effects of cannabis without getting woozy.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these strains, check out our Las Vegas Strip, Tropicana West, or Henderson menu. You can also text us your order.Hope to hear from you soon! And stay warm out there!
