This Chart Shows How to Pair Marijuana Strains with Food and Wine, Just in Time for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, which means millions of Americans will be chowing down on turkey and mashed potatoes, then spending hours wondering why they ate so much food. Luckily there's a way to help deal with some of those post-Thanksgiving dinner feelings: Marijuana!

The marijuana delivery company Eaze has arrived to help people find the perfect strain to for Thanksgiving celebrations. They even made a handy-dandy chart to with the different terpenes in marijuana to show what effects they have and what they pair best with. Take a look:

The caryophyllene looks like an excellent terpene to look into for tomorrow. It helps with gastrointestinal issues, meaning it will help with digesting that giant turkey dinner. And it seems like the aroma it produces will go excellent with a Thanksgiving dinner. Marijuana strains with caryophyllene include Rockstar, Skywalker OG and Northern Lights.

However, many people suggest that Pinot Noir is the best wine to pair with turkey. So if you decide to pull that out tomorrow, Eaze suggests you go for a strain containing myrcene, such as OG Kush or White Widow.

Or maybe you'll need a strain to help pick you up from all the tryptophan in your turkey. In that case, you may want to choose a strain with nerolidol, such as Skywalker OG or Island sweet.

But ultimately, it just comes down to personal taste. If you have a favorite strain, just enjoy it. It's Thanksgiving after all! Celebrate what you're most thankful for in life. And if what you're most thankful for is your favorite marijuana strain, then enjoy!
