Cannabis and the Holidays: Which strains are the best?
It’s December, and that means only one thing! Celebration time! The Holiday season has already started, and people are already caught up in the festive mode. The Christmas spirit is present in all shapes and scents, as streets, shops, and homes get lit up with colorful fairy lights, and food stands smell like sweet treats and mulled wine.
This part of the year is especially exciting for people of all ages, even for people who don’t celebrate Christmas but are looking forward to New Years’s Eve and all the surprises the upcoming year is about to bring. It is the perfect time for friends and family to come together and catch up, and for many, it’s the ideal time to party!
No matter how you decide to spend this Holiday season, you certainly may feel stressed out and tense considering the amount of pressure you may feel while preparing for the cold days. So, if you feel like you require more energy or rest, there are few things you may want to look into.
For example, did you know that some cannabis strains are known to provide a fantastic energy boost, and also, some have brilliant medical properties and can be used as stress-reliefs?
So, here’s a small list with some of the best strains for this Holiday season:
A perfect strain for those who tend to stress out in tense moments of organizing and planning. Yes, the holiday season is stressful, so that’s why Fruitcake may be of some help. Many users have described it as a great strain that relaxes both the body and mind without causing drowsiness. Some say they have enjoyed certain physical activities when trying Fruitcake as they’ve claimed it increases focus and stamina. However, it does have a high percentage of the terpene myrcene, so more users tend to feel more relaxed, balancing on the fence of calm and tranquility.

Users love it for the uplifting and energetic buzz it provides, and this Cannabis Cup winner (1st place 2004, 1st place Sativa Cup 2012) has since been popularized in the coffee shops of Amsterdam.
3. Serious Kush
If you are someone who would rather stay at home and relax, or maybe simply skip all the celebrations and get a good night’s sleep, then Serious Kush might be the strain you’ve been looking for. Expect a delicious heavy kush flavor with a strong gassy earthiness and a put-you-to-bed type of high. Serious Kush is an excellent strain for ending your day on the couch with a movie before you float off to sleep.
