Top 5 Strain Picks to Get Through Winter

Winter means turning our clocks back, and the shorter days and colder nights that come with it. And for some, it can also bring on the winter blues. Freezing rain, snow and gray skies can be a downer for many humans. For some, wintertime brings very real consequences of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the type of depression that results from seasonal changes, most commonly experienced during the colder months. Since our bodies use sunlight to help regulate our mood, sleep and appetite, it makes sense that some people could suffer mentally and physically during the winter months. Thankfully, there are delicious winter weed strains to help us through the transitory winter months into springtime. Whether you’re shopping for cozy recreational winter strains to enjoy or looking for winter marijuana strains for medicinal support, let’s cozy up and look at some of the best winter cannabis strains available this season.

Himalayan Blackberry

Himalayan Blackberry by Soulshine Cannabis is definitely on our favorite winter marijuana strains list this season! It is an indica strain that boasts both earthy flavors and a relaxing body high. Himalayan Blackberry combines dense Nepalese with North Indian strains that can help relieve pain while subtly invigorating the mind. The aroma is both rich and floral with strong Kush overtones. Due to its sedative effects, this strain is best enjoyed near the end of the day and can be especially soothing to help you get the rest you need during the winter months. Plus, supporting Soulshine Cannabis means supporting animals, since they donate a portion of all gross sales to Emerald City Pet Rescue!

Boggy Boon Mac And Cheese

Who doesn’t want to cuddle up with a bowl of warm mac n’ cheese during the winter months?!? Just like the delicious comfort food, the Mac And Cheese cannabis strain is equally as aromatic and comforting. This indica-dominant hybrid is one of our recommended winter marijuana strains brought to you by the Pacific Northwest’s Boggy Boon Farms.

Mac And Cheese is a go-to for those seeking a blissful experience, especially those looking for happy winter weed strains. Since this strain is said to be more energizing than relaxing, it can be a great strain for seizing the shorter days of winter. Additionally, supporting Boggy Boon means you are supporting a veteran-owned Washington cannabis company that employs 35 full-time employees and is committed to sustainable, organic greenhouse growing technologies.

Creekside Kush Sorbet

Kush Sorbet is a hazy, uplifting and potent hybrid brought to you by Creekside Cannabis, which is nestled in the Cascade Mountain region of Washington. A cross of Sunset Sherbet and Triangle Kush, Kush Sorbet can be especially helpful in getting you off the couch and to the gym during the winter months.

Kush Sorbet is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic pain, cramps or muscle spasms, and the chronic stress and depression that can accompany the winter blues and Seasonal Affective Disorder. Kush Sorbet buds pack sweet, fruity flavors with hints of fresh mint that can provide the focus needed to tackle your to-do list, which unfortunately doesn’t get shorter just because the day gets shorter. It’s one of the best winter cannabis strains this season. 

Northern Lights

Named after the Arctic’s winter season, when the sky is dark enough for the Northern Lights to be visible, this infamous indica strain is said to provide both mind and body relaxation, heightened appetite, and an all-around warm feeling needed for those wanting the perfect winter weed strain. Boasting a sweet and spicy flavor profile, medicinal cannabis users report that this strain helps relieve symptoms of depression, stress, pain and sleeplessness. 

Jack Frost 

Jack Frost is a popular well-balanced hybrid created by crossing White Widow with Northern Lights #5. Said to bring on joyous, creative and energized feelings, this strain gets you through the cold, winter days. It’s also been said to support those healing from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression and overall stress. With the taste of winter-inspired pine and pumpkin, Jack Frost definitely makes the best winter weed strains list!
