7 Marijuana Strains For Every Star Wars Fan

The excruciating wait is almost over. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens this weekend, kicking off the first instalment in the new trilogy that will hopefully make up for those awful prequels.

In honor of the event, here are seven cannabis strains that every aspiring Jedi Master, Sith Lord, Rebel or Imperialist should know about.

1. Deathstar OG

Much like the Death Star, this indica strain takes time to kick in before it blasts the mind with a powerful head high. But don't worry. The strain's relaxing qualities ensure that your brain won't feel like Alderaan. (Too soon?)

2. Darth Vader OG

Don't let this indica strain fool you: it may be purple like Samuel L. Jackson's lightsaber, but it's powerful in the ways of the Sith. Rather than force-choking you into submission, it uses heavy/forceful relaxation to disarm your resistance to the Dark Side of the Force:

3. Skywalker

This indica-dominant hybrid is renowned for helping people treat chronic pain and insomnia. It offers a pleasant head high without clouding your mind with thoughts that might lead to the Dark Side. So it's ideal for relaxing after a training with Yoda, or for treating that nagging wrist injury.

4. Master Yoda

The force is strong in this hybrid strain. And by "force" we mean THC, which can reach more than 20 percent. And just like its comic yet sagacious namesake, the strain entertains, uplifts and inspires.

5. Master Jedi

Known for helping young Padawans learn patience, focus and logic, this strain promotes relaxation and happiness. Making it the ideal for regaining your balance and tranquility before avenging your fallen master.

6. Princess Leia

Cannabis consumers who need to stay alert while running errands, doing chores and smuggling stolen Death Star plans should give this strain a puff to stay clear-headed, focused and energetic. This homage to Carrie Fisher is perfect for taking charge of a crisis and blasting your way out of Cloud City.

7. Ewok

Trying to defeat a technologically savvy empire using only rocks and sticks? This hybrid strain can help by getting the creative juices flowing while making you feel as warm and fuzzy inside as its namesake is on the outside. It also relieves that sort of stress that comes from biting off more than you chew.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been on the forefront of health and beauty trends for the past couple years and is continuing to pop up everywhere as the market expands and continues to gain momentum. Previously sold by head shops, health food stores, or online retailers, CBD has dramatically entered the mainstream as a health or nutritional supplement, making a splash in the beauty industry as a skin care and cosmetics add-in, as well as in the food industry, garnishing mocktails or lattes for an extra couple bucks each. The health and beauty industries are wont to never miss out on a booming trend, and CBD is no exception.
