7 sorts of weeds for hibernation


The weather is cold and it’s officially time to make everything cozy. It’s good that of the many benefits of cannabis use, feeling good inside is high on the list.

It’s okay to be lazy this time of year. Here are seven types of weed that are great for making you relaxed, sleepy, happy, and comfortable staying indoors, whether you’re watching a movie, reading a book, or drinking hot cider.

Ice cream cake

Ice Cream Cake is an extremely delicious variety that tastes like sweet frosting on frozen berries. It was bred by the famous Seed Junky Genetics so you already know it is a fire.

Ice Cream Cake’s indica-dominant genetics cross two of the cannabis community’s most popular strains: Wedding Cake and Gelato # 33, giving it sweet, gaseous, and berry flavors. Consumers usually feel very stoned and lazy in the body after consuming this strain.

Leafly reviewers say the most common Ice Cream Cake effects are making you feel relaxed, happy, and euphoric.

Kush mints

Kush mints have been on trend lately. Another heavy hitter from Seed Junky, this popular strain was bred by crossing Animals Mints with Bubba Kush. The result is a well-balanced hybrid known for its minty and earthy flavors, and a powerful high that starts in the head and quickly turns into a full-body experience.

If you’re looking for something that has a euphoric, happy GSC feel to it, give Kush Mints a try.


Leafly Buzz: 8 Cannabis Strains in 2021

GMO cookies

In my opinion, GMO Cookies is one of the best strains of weed ever. No matter which producer or company I buy it from, it always tastes good. That goes for its flower, hash, and vape pens. If you want a super potent indica-dominant strain that will keep you smiling for hours, garlic biscuits will rarely fool you.

GMO Cookies is Chemdog crossed with GSC. It has the funkest, skunkiest, and garlicky taste that will ever bless your taste buds, and the effects are * boss kiss *. GVO will hit your entire mind, body, and spirit with a dose of relaxation that makes sitting inside much more comfortable when the outside temperature drops.

Although hailed as being strong yet not sleepy, if you smoke too much GMO cookies, be sure to take a nap.

Falcon 9

Falcon 9 is a potent indica that will put you right down when it’s time to relax and watch a feel-good movie. Bred by the legends of Exotic Genetix – biscuit and cream maker, Grease Monkey, Kimbo Kush, etc. – Falcon 9 is a cross of Sherbert and her famous Tina strain.

Like Ice Cream Cake above, F9 is known for a sweet, dark berry flavor that gives way to a sleepy, soothing high. It also tastes amazingly like hashish.

Mandarin Sunset is an orange and skunk flavored indica developed by Ethos Genetics. It’s a hybrid of Herijuana and Orange Skunk, a genetics that creates a strain that is as potent as it is tasty. In one simple sentence, there is a very high chance (pun intended) that smoking Mandarin Sunset will immediately end your evening. It’s essentially the weed version of the Luther Burger on Boondocks.

According to Leafly reviewers, Mandarin Sunset will make you feel relaxed, happy, and sleepy.

Lava cake

Lava Cake is an indica-dominant strain from the hands and minds of Cannarado Genetics. A cross of Thin Mint GSC (I know what you think, and YES, cookies are almost everything) and Grape Pie, it’s a delightfully relaxing smoke.

It smells like a classic dessert variety that is commonly crossed into some of the stronger varieties. Its taste comes through as cake-like terpenes and it has a great chill high. Careful, Leafly reviewers say this will leave you hungry in addition to those relaxed, euphoric feelings.

Gushers looks, smells, and tastes just like those little sachets of juice we all love to overeat. Many of the strains on this list have a sweet, slightly fruity taste, but for downright berry medley smoke, Gushers is the one.

If all you want to do is put on your pajama bottoms and hibernate yourself with the perfect combination of vibrant flavors and calming effects, you can’t go wrong here.
