5 Best Marijuana Strains for Thanksgiving

Thursday is Thanksgiving, a day that’s mostly known for eating turkey and watching football. But it can also be very stressful, so you wouldn’t be blamed for wanting to use a little cannabis to relax on Turkey Day. But what strains go best with your Thanksgiving plans?

Here are the five best strains for Thanksgiving:

1. Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a strain that contains Caryophyllene, an essential oil that’s also found in most cooking spices. So Northern Lights is a perfect strain to pair with a Thanksgiving dinner, particularly if there’s a lot of spices involved.

2. Green Crack

Everyone knows eating turkey makes people fall asleep, regardless of age. But if you use the Green Crack strain before dinner, you should have enough energy to stay awake all day, even if you have seconds or thirds!

3. White Widow

Wine is often a staple at Thanksgiving dinners, and while everyone has a different recommendation of what kind of wine you should actually bring to Thanksgiving, we’re guessing you’ll see a lot of Pinot Noirs. White Widow is a strain that’s known to be great for pairing with Pinot Noirs, making it an excellent choice on Thanksgiving.

4. Sour Diesel

Like Green Crack, Sour Diesel is a strain known for providing energy. But it also has a diesel-y taste (hence the name) that some find off-putting. But if you eat a bunch of mashed potatoes, turkey, apple pie or any other Thanksgiving food right after using Sour Diesel, the strain’s taste won’t last too long.

5. OG Kush

Like White Widow, OG Kush is a strain that’s known to pair well with Pinot Noir, a wine that also pairs well with turkey. And it’s also known to be a very relaxing strain, which will help on a stressful day dealing with family.


Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
