10 Best Marijuana Strains for Dealing with Cold Weather

The winter is a very polarizing season. Some people love it because of all the holidays (Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, etc.) and because they love the snow. But others hate shoveling and sitting indoors all day while jacking up their bills because they need to crank up the heat.

Regardless on whether you love the winter or hate it, here are 10 marijuana strains that will best help you get through the next few months.

10. Lemon Haze

It’s wintertime, and you’re stuck in your house all day. And when you’re indoors all day, you at least want to enjoy the smells of your environment. Now you could either purchase a bunch of candles and risk burning your house down, or you can get some Lemon Haze and enjoy the smell of fresh peeled lemons in your living room. Perfect for people who love the smell of Pinesol.

9. LSD Weed Strain

Let’s face it, you will find yourself bored a lot this winter. So taking a particularly strong marijuana strain may solve some of those issues. The LSD strain (which does not contain LSD) is known to produce a particularly powerful high, so you’ll forget all about how bored you were before smoking up.

8. Maui Wowie

For many people, the winter means months of sitting inside curled underneath a thick blanket. While you’re enduring the cold, the Maui Wowie strain will remind you of more tropical locales so you can at least pretend to be somewhere warmer in in your imagination.

7. O.G. Kush

Winter can also lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a condition where people become depressed due to bad weather and because they’re unable spend time outdoors. O.G. Kush is one of the best strains known to alleviate stress, anxiety and other symptoms that accompany SAD.

6. Granddaddy Purple

You ever have one of those days where you’re snowed in your house and start going crazy because you have nothing to do? That’s when you pull out the Granddaddy Purple. It will allow you to just sit down on the couch, relax and enjoy some Netflix.

5. Jack Frost

You know you can actually go outside and enjoy the winter weather, right? That’s where the Jack Frost comes in handy. It’s derived from strains grown in colder climates, making it a perfect companion on a nice, winter stroll.

4. Sour Tsunami

Did you just wipeout while hitting the slopes? Are you stuck in the ski lodge nursing your injuries and enjoying a nice hot cocoa? Well, you’ll need to add some Sour Tsunami to your life. It has a high CBD content, meaning it will help you cope with your injuries and allow you to hit the slopes sooner. Or just take away your pain and allow you to enjoy your hot cocoa in peace.

3. Northern Lights

Many people like to travel up to the Arctic regions to enjoy the famous Northern Lights. But it’s also really cold up there. So why not just enjoy this strain that uses the same name and get a similar psychedelic experience? No winter jacket required!

2. Candyland

The winter is also all about sweets. Between Christmas and Valentine’s Day, you’ll have more than your fair share of sweets to get through the holidays. And while you’re enjoying a Candy Cane or box of chocolates, you can also pull out some Candyland, a sweet sativa strain that will go nicely with your other sugary treats.

1. White Widow

Anyone who’s enjoyed a White Christmas knows that a nice blanket of snow outside can be beautiful. What better way to enjoy a nice winter snow than a white strain of marijuana? White Widow is one of the most famous strains across the world with beautiful white buds.
