Summer is well underway, and with that comes summertime flings and romances. Something about the sunny, warm weather just makes you want to get all loosey-goosey with your body. For that reason, we’re taking a closer look at cannabis strains—and their cannabinoids and terpene profiles—that could enhance those romantic encounters.

Try out these strains for their arousing, euphoric, and relaxing effects that’ll have you feeling ready for an evening full of romance-novel-with-Fabio-on-the-cover caliber passion.

    I can vouch for the AC/DC. Sometimes people just want to relax w/o the high. This strain will do that for you. I’ve had many compliments on this girl.
    I grow a true AC/DC (clone only) strain that tested at 0.4 THC , 16% CBD and have found that I can relax and smoke a bowl of this after work and take a pee test the next day and pass. Even if you smoke a lot on a friday night, by Monday you’re good to go. The caveat on this is that there are companies selling AC/DC seeds. It has always been known that AC/DC is a clone only strain. I did buy some of these seeds to compare and just harvested. I will drop these off at the lab to see how they turned out after first doing my own smoke and pee test on them. I figure if it cant pass my own simple test, its it’s probably not worth the 100 mile round trip and $ on testing

    I am wondering what is the best strain for energy, depression, anxiety daytime without CBD. I know that Legend of 91 #4 helped me so much with my insomnia but I cannot find it nearby so is there a great alternative? Any help would be appreciated.
