While sharing a little cannabis can certainly be an excellent social activity, sometimes there’s nothing better than sparking up your favorite strain for a little solo session. And in times of COVID, the smart thing to do is to stay clear of social gatherings, even more if you’re all gonna be smoking out of the same joint.
Learning to smoke alone is something you’ll be forever grateful for since you’re not always gonna be able to smoke with others. Some strains are more energizing and sociable, yet others can be more introspective and may help you understand yourself in a different way. For those who love or want to learn how to blaze up alone, here are the best strains to help you do that.
Sour G is a sativa with a 13.5% CBG content and little to no THC levels, which means you’ll get a clean high without any psychoactive effects. Sour G does not get you high in the classical sense. Instead, it increases focus and elevates your mood, letting you remain productive and happy throughout the day.
This strain is great if you want mellow stimulation without feeling stoned and disoriented from THC. It’s known for increased focus and creativity, as well as positive mood enhancement that maintains motivation and energy levels. As such, it’s perfect for daytime use for anyone looking to get things done and still have energy to spare.
Created by mixing two acclaimed hybrids, Sour Tsunami and Early Resin Berry, Sour Space Candy is great for anyone looking for some uplifted relaxation or to relieve stress and tension after a long day. Being a high CBD strain (16.4%), this is also a great alternative for someone looking to calm their anxiety and reduce pain and inflammation.
The smell of Sour Space Candy is several-fold, with some notes reminiscent of fruit, gas, and diesel thanks to its parents. You’ll taste these robust flavors in the smoke itself as well. This flower will leave you with a sense of calm and relaxation that CBD is known for. And if you love sour smells and flavors, you’re going to fall in love with this one.
Whitezilla is the child of the notorious strains Budzilla and Berry White. An Indica dominant hybrid, this potent bud unleashes a strong, sweet, herbaceous aroma and has been known to induce euphoric body highs with a mild head buzz that can make you feel as if your brain is floating. Don’t be surprised if you experience other calming effects such as a mellow body tingle, dreamy sensation, or a gentle cerebral high.
Whitezilla’s buds are dense and resinous, covered in trichomes and soft white hairs giving these flowers an almost pure white color. If you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive high-quality bud, then look no further than this LAKE GRADE Whitezilla.
Hawaiian Haze is a mostly sativa strain that produces some high-quality sativa effects. These light, airy buds will melt your stress away while allowing you to remain focused with a clear head. Many consumers report that it’s their favorite daytime smoke because it makes them sociable and eliminates anxiety.
This strain will ripen your palate while putting you in a happy, carefree state of being. Its intense floral aromas and taste of pineapple and ripe berry might just have you daydreaming about an island vacation.
Thicc is a heavy indica that features 29% THC. This craft-made, hand-trimmed nug will make you insanely high, thus bringing on feelings of peace, love, and an overall sense of chill that are ideal for a late afternoon smoke. If you want to get stoned really fast, without putting in much effort then this bud is for you.
This heavy indica has dense nugs and features a gassy OG aroma that gives off hints of your favorite-smelling garage. As the smoke envelopes your mind, you’ll be taken to faraway places only to awaken on your couch.
Shiva Skunk is one of those strains that can help bring you back into a more present and meditative state of mind. Thoughtful, introspective, and perhaps introverted, this strain is the perfect selection for those who want to spend some time winding down and sorting through their own mind.
This flower would be an excellent choice prior to a yoga session or a long walk. With THC levels between 15 and 20%, this indica flower provides a strong psychoactive experience.
Sometimes, you just need to focus and get things done. Jean Guy is a high-THC hybrid that promotes focus and makes for a perfect wake-n-bake bud. Though this flower is also a solid choice for social gatherings, it provides a cerebral experience that can be a little introverted.
Featuring up to 25% THC, the Jean Guy strain is recommended for experienced consumers. Pick up this creative flower before a day full of chores or moments when deadlines are tight and creativity is needed.
Purple Urkle is one of the most famous indica strains around. This flower often features up to 20% THC, though it can be more potent when grown with expert care. Sedative, creative, and deeply relaxing, this flower can slow down both your mind and body.
While Purple Urkle is excellent for those with body pain and muscle tension, this grape-scented flower often inspires a calm thoughtfulness that can help you decompress after a long day. If you’re ready to sink into the sofa for some quality alone time, this strain can be a welcome companion.
Chernobyl is a potent hybrid that has been rapidly gaining in popularity. Extremely potent, this flower can produce up to a whopping 30% THC. With levels like this, Chernobyl is best saved for experienced solo consumers. Though technically a hybrid, this flower is often classified as a sativa. A high energy flower, Chernobyl can be used in the morning for creative projects and lively activities like exercise.
While upbeat and happy, this strain also has an introverted side. Chernobyl is thoughtful and focused. This means that consumers can spend some quality time looking inward after a puff or two of this mind-melting flower.
Atomic Northern Lights is a lovely selection for both low-key social activities and solo ventures. Many may find that this strain is great to share with a partner thanks to its ability to inspire arousal. However, Atomic Northern Lights does inspire a mellow and thoughtful attitude that makes it a great choice for spending some quality time alone.
Considered an indica-dominant hybrid, Atomic Northern Lights can produce a gentle sleepiness that is perfect for after a long day of work. Featuring up to 24% THC, Atomic Northern Lights is recommended for experienced consumers.
