We’re knee-deep into Summer 2019, and the question on everyone’s mind is, “What should I be smoking right now?”
Great question! There are a lot of brand new “stand-out” strains and products currently available in Sin City. Don’t know what they are? No problem. That’s what we’re here for!
So if you’re ready to try something new but aren’t sure where to start, here are the 8 best Las Vegas cannabis strains and products for August 2019!
1. Strawberry Lemonade
Terpenes: Limonene, b-Caryophyllene, b-Myrcene
Strawberry Lemonade has been around for a while, but if you haven’t tried it already for whatever reason, stop what you’re doing and treat yourself to this quintessential summer strain.
It took home the First Place Prize at the High Times 2015 Denver Cannabis Cup for “Best Sativa Concentrate.” If you like the taste of sweet citrus and strawberry, Strawberry Lemonade will not disappoint as it smells and tastes as close enough to the real thing as you can get without actually being the real thing.
The effects are a whimsical rollercoaster ride. One moment, you’re feeling calm and relaxed, and the next minute you’re up and ready to party from sunrise to sunset. Then the strain gently brings you back down into a lazy, chill state of mind, and then back into euphoric party-mode again!
For this reason, Strawberry Lemonade embodies the best of a truly awesome summer vacation: it’ll make sure you make time to have fun and chill out!
2. Citrus Tsunami #6
Terpenes: Limonene, b-Caryophyllene, b-Myrcene
Tsunami indeed! These buds deliver a powerful blast of sweet citrus aroma and flavor. You could literally just sit and inhale the scent for hours while admiring their dark, rich, green color and orange hairs. But eventually, the smell of those terpenes will be too much to resist, and you’ll be lighting up, lickety-split.
The result is a stimulating, focused-powered effect that lifts you up and fills you with drive while at the same time keeping you nice and chill. This is a good first-thing-in-the-morning strain to help motivate you and get you ready to work.
3. Terpee Slerpee #3
Terpenes: Terpinolene, b-Myrcene, Limonene
Terpee Slerpee #3 smells a lot like pine sol, but once you apply that flame and start puffing away, it gives off more of an earthy smell. Speaking of flames, this strain will DEFINITELY add fuel to your daily fire. And if you don’t have a lot of daily fire going yet, it will get your fire going and then add fuel to it.
Terpee Slerpee invigorates your entire body, so it may not be ideal if you’re trying to be creative or focus on anything with your mind. The key word with this strain is energy. If you’ve got lots of physical stuff you need to do — run a marathon, chop wood, clean your house, or knock the stuffing out of a punching bag — Terpee Slerpee deserves a spot on your shelf!
4. Shark Bite #11
Terpenes: Limonene, a-Pinene, Ocimene
Shark Bite #11 hits you with a sweet, pleasant, lemony-piney scent, letting you know off the bat that you’re in for a very special treat.
Despite its intense-sounding name, Shark Bite is one of the gentleness hybrids you’ll ever come across. It offers a smooth, even balance of body and head effects, gentle washing all of your cares and worries away.
With some strains, the effects can rush in and overwhelm you. Not Shark Bite. It’s more like the strain is inviting you into the experience of light sedation – an invitation you’ll definitely want to accept. Highly recommended for beginners!
5. Afternoon Delight #7
Terpenes: Limonene, b-Caryophyllene, Linalool
In the Mediterranean, Spain, and other parts of southern Europe, people take “siestas.” If you’ve never heard of them, they’re basically really long naps. Businesses shut down, and everyone kicks back and relaxes around mid-day. They don’t go back to work until around 3-4 pm-ish.
The creators of “Afternoon Delight #7” must have had the siesta in mind because if siestas were popular here in America, this is the strain that we’d be smoking during those hours. First, it infuses your mind with a relaxing, peaceful euphoria, calming your thoughts. More of that relaxation floods into your body, giving you the sensation that you’re floating in the ocean.
We heartily recommend this strain for mid-day decompression. It won’t fully knock you out, but it gives you just the right amount of sedation to relax and appreciate the fact that you’ve made it halfway through the workday…
6. Desert Sunset #3
Terpenes: Terpinolene, Ocimene, a-Pinene
If we had to sum up Desert Sunset #3 with just one word, it would be, “WOW!”
This is a powerful but quirky, heavy-hitting indica. It totally absorbs you into a blanket of euphoric sedation, removing the tension from every single cell in your body.
But oddly enough, you get a slight uplifting boost as well that encourages wakefulness. Enjoy that while it lasts. Because the sedative effects will slowly begin to overtake you completely, and before you know it, you’ll be waking up from either a quick nap or an 8-hour snoozefest, just depending on how tired you are.
If you manage to stay awake, though, that uplifting feeling comes back, followed by the heavy sedation once again. For this reason, the name “Desert Sunset” definitely fits the strain. You play the role of the setting sun: awake and shining for just a brief moment, then slowly descending into a peaceful rest.
7. Select CBD Lavender Disposable Vape Pen (“Relax”)
Select CBD Disposable Vape Pens are something pretty special. Made from pure hemp extract and essential oils, the pens offer a variety of therapeutic benefits, minus the psychoactive effects of THC.
The pens come in six different oil blends that fit in one of the following three categories: Focus, Revive, and Relax. This month, we’ll be focusing on their Lavender Vape Pen, which is in the “Relax” category.
Lavender is a natural sedative, so when you combine that with CBD, you’ve got a perfect combination that can deliver much-needed relief after a stress-filled, hectic day. A six-second pull from the pen is all you need for a single dose, and you’ll quickly feel the CBD and lavender oil work their magic on your body and mind.
But there’s another way you can use the Lavender Vape Pen: CBD helps counter some of the negative side effects you experience when you consume too much THC. If you’re ever in a situation where you’ve smoked way more than you should and you start feeling anxious, take a hit or two from this pen, and it’ll help stabilize you and bring you back to earth.
8. Wyld CBD Blackberry Gummies
These gummies are pure bliss in a bottle.
We’ve written about Wyld before. Long story short; we were blown away by the quality, flavor, and potency of their products. Now Wyld has come out with a CBD-only version of their gummies that allow you to enjoy relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and other conditions that CBD is known to treat.
Like their THC-infused cousins, the Wyld CBD Blackberry Gummies are about as high-end on the cannabis-infused gummy spectrum as you can get in these parts. Each gummy square, which contains 25 mg of CBD, is covered with powdered sugar, and they’re so soft they practically melt in your mouth, delivering a delicious blackberry flavor to your taste buds.
Once the edible kicks in, you’ll feel a nice, cool ease flow over you. Stiff muscles will unstiffen. Your body aches won’t ache quite so much. And life won’t seem oh-so stressful. A lot of power in just one gummy!
