7 Euphoric Cannabis Strains for Watching HBO’s ‘Euphoria’

Published on July 10, 2019 · Last updated July 28, 2020

Fresh off the Game of Thrones series finale, HBO has kicked off many new shows in search of the next best thing. One of those shows is Euphoria, executive-produced by Drake and starring Zendaya as Rue Bennett, a teen battling substance abuse and all the angst in the world. Euphoria follows the stories of multiple high school students as they navigate drug use, sexuality, and many other societal hurdles that all humans experience.

It’s an incredible show, and with a name like Euphoria, it’s only right to pair watching it with a cannabis strain that will hit you with euphoric feelings of bliss and chill.

What are cannabis terpenes and what do they do?

Here are seven suggestions to get you started.

Blue Dream

Most common terpenes: Myrcene, pinene
Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (16-21% on average)

Blue Dream crosses Blueberry and Haze to produce an orange hair-covered cannabis strain with sweet blueberry flavoring.

Regarded as one of the better strains for grass-smokin’ newbies due to its usually mild effects, Blue Dream tends to leave people in a feel-good state of bliss, almost like a giggly daze. This daze then kicks into a non-sedative relaxation, perfectly suited for both daytime and nighttime activities.

You know this list couldn’t exist without the Big Papa of all euphoric strains (in my opinion), GSC, sometimes known as just Cookies. A cross of OG Kush and Durban Poison, GSC is sweet and earthy, with gassy undertones that very much shine through when consumed as hash.

Though it’ll put a smile on your face and some happy in your heart, this powerful strain may send you straight to the couch. But when you’re catching up on four episodes of Home Box Office television, isn’t that exactly what you want?

Big Smooth

Most common terpenes: Pinene, myrcene
Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (19-22% on average)

Exotic Genetix crossed Blueberry OG and Cookies and Cream to create the flavorful Big Smooth. Big green and purple buds produce a sweet and doughy taste that’ll please the palate of any fruity strain lover.

With a name like Big Smooth, you’d expect it to pack a big punch, but the high is surprisingly mild with a relaxed yet not sleepy experience, making this a great strain to toss into your body before kicking off your next solo watch party.

White Widow

Most common terpenes: Myrcene, caryophyllene
Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (14-19% on average)

Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. It crosses a Brazilian sativa landrace with a resin-heavy South Indian strain to produce a trichome-covered flower with earthy and floral flavors.

Straight up, the White Widow experience is the definition of euphoric. It’s potent, but instead of kicking you into sleep, White Widow usually provides a state of relaxed bliss that ends up feeling more energizing than sedating.

Orange Cookies

Most common terpenes: Terpinolene, myrcene, caryophyllene
Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (19-22% on average)

Bred by Franchise Genetics, Orange Cookies is one of the tastiest GSC hybrids to ever be tasted. A cross of GSC with Orange Juice (not to be confused with Oran Juice, the R&B legend), Orange Cookies hits your body with a blast of orange terpenes on each sniff, each inhale.

Reminiscent of others Cookies crosses like Sherbert, Orange Cookies will most likely hit you with a potent body high that will have you feeling carefree and happy, the exact opposite of most characters in Euphoria.

Quantum Kush

Most common terpenes: Limonene, caryophyllene, myrcene
Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (17-21% on average)

Quantum Kush is a sweet and earthy cross of Sweet Irish Kush and Timewreck that drops trichomes from its buds like bread crumbs in the woods.

A THC powerhouse, most consumers would assume QK to be a sleepytime strain. However, it tends to be euphoric with a relaxed yet alert and engaged type of high. Toss it in your bowl and turn on the tube.

Most common terpenes: Caryophyllene, limonene, humulene

Candyland is a sativa-dominant hybrid cross of Granddaddy Purple and Bay Platinum Cookies. Golden hairs and sugar-like trichomes make up this strain’s appearance, while sweet and earthy tones make up its flavor profile.

As a strain, Candyland provides an array of effects. Some use it medically to try and moderate pain and muscle tension; others seek its creative and socially stimulating effects, which pair well with activities like inviting all of your friends over to get stoned, eating the largest of pizzas, and watching the newest episode of Euphoria.
