Today marks everyone’s least favorite day of the entire year: Tax Day. After countless hours of organizing pertinent paperwork, filling out tedious forms, searching for a good accountant, and playing everyone’s much-loathed game, “Do I get a refund or do I need to shell out more of my earnings?”, let’s just say things can get a little stressful.
Fortunately, the Leafly team is here to offer your some good news. We’ve compiled a list of seven uber-relaxing strains to help you de-stress. As soon as you e-file, drop your tax paperwork off at the post office, or successfully file an extension so you can procrastinate for another six months, you might want to pick up a few from the list below.
This strain was designed for those moments when you truly feel like an absolute Trainwreck. A potent sativa-dominant hybrid, this little lady is the perfect remedy for all of the headaches and anxiety that comes along with Tax Day.
One of the most popular indicas, Northern Lights is a classic choice when you’re looking for a little rest and relaxation. Known best for its creative and uplifting effects, this is a great option for getting those artistic juices flowing after a long day of crunching numbers and staring at receipts.
3. Master Kush
There’s no better way to celebrate the end of a terrible day than with a 90s throwback. Master Kush is a plucky indica that won the High Times Cannabis Cup back in 1992 and again in 1993, making it a truly old school masterpiece.
Though the true stress-relieving qualities of this popular hybrid are only fully expressed when paired with frozen Thin Mints or Tagalongs, GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies) is sure to take your mind off of the fact that your new job pushed you up a tax bracket this year. Congratulations! We bet no other promotion has felt quite so bittersweet.
5. Skunk #1
Another oldie but goodie, Skunk #1 first debuted in 1978 and is sure to take you back to a time when the world was a little simpler: no computer freezing right when you’re about to submit your forms, low risks of identity theft, and no hidden fees taken directly out of your refund by online tax help programs.
If any of you are like me, you’ve waited until the last possible minute to get your taxes sent in. Willy’s Wonder, an indica-dominant hybrid, is sure to help you get a good night’s sleep once you’ve finally figured out how to get everything submitted via Turbo Tax.
7. Mr. Nice
In an interview, Seattle attorney Kurt Boehl gave readers a piece of advice: “If you’re going to sell a Schedule One substance, don’t fail to pay your taxes, too.” Named after Howard Marks, one of the largest cannabis smugglers of all time, Mr. Nice is the perfect indica-leaning hybrid to help you celebrate your recent stint as a law-abiding, tax paying citizen.
