Bubble Gum is the perfect strain to elevate your creative self. With just a few tokes, this sweet Sativa-dominant hybrid will pique your interest and inspire your creativity.
Bubble Gum is a delightful cross between the South African strain Power Plant and the Brazilian strain Santa Maria. This strain combines the best traits of both parents into a fast-flowering, resinous offspring.
You may also know this strain as Bubba Gum. The flavor profile of this strain is reminiscent of its namesake, with bubble gum and sweet floral flavors bursting through. Its medium-high level of THC of 17% is perfect for newcomers and experienced users alike.
Bubble Gum is used by medical marijuana patients to treat symptoms associated with disorders such as chronic pain, nausea, stress, and depression.
One of the most important things about a New Year is the reflective and meditative moments where you plan out and dream about the year to come. For a stronger and more intense meditation practice, you might want to add a little kick from Arjan’s Haze.
Arjan’s Haze is a highly potent Sativa-dominant strain known for its potent psychoactive effects that provide a long-lasting, energetic high. This strain is perfect for busy days when an energetic boost or dose of creative inspiration is needed.
Arjan’s Haze has a genetic composition of 70% sativa genetics and 30% indica genetics. G13 and Haze were crossed to create Arjan’s Haze 1.
The provided head high is strong and clear, with a subtle but still present body high that provides slight relaxation. With a THC content of around 21%, even experienced smokers will feel the effects of this strain.
Mimosa Evo is a hybrid of Purple Punch and Clementine. This lovely 70% Sativa-dominant hybrid shines with large, frosted buds that are high in THC (24-26%) and terpenes.
This flavorful and potent strain is also visually appealing, with purple hues that are easy to fall in love with at first sight. Mimosa Evo is a sexy-looking hybrid with very enticing notes and an alluring set of effects you will love!
You can use Mimosa Evo to kick-start a productive writing, drawing, or recording session. Just be careful not to overindulge, or you may find yourself falling into a deep slumber.
The White Buffalo’s wondrously creative and vibrant cerebral effects make it a contender for the top of this list. Unlike many sativa strains, which give you a rush of energy and sometimes anxiety, White Buffalo can stimulate your brain while leaving your body inactive.
White Buffalo has a subtle sweetness. Its notes of peaches and white tea seduce your tongue and have you slipping into a meditative state with little effort.
This strain is perfect for filling your mind with intent and setting the scene for some relaxation. If you stare out the window for too long on a rainy day, you’ll find yourself engulfed by the cozy consciousness of your mind’s vast library.
When meditating, you may want to relax both your muscles and your mind. The SoCal Master Kush will help you relax without scattering your mind.
This fantastic indica has a sour, skunky flavor that distinguishes it from other strains, including regular Master Kush.
Because of its limited cerebral effects, SoCal Master Kush will assist you in finding your center. This allows you to lose your sense of time without losing your sense of self, which is great for New Year planning.
