Independence Day is just one day away! At this point, you’ve already cleaned out your local grocery store's chips, hot dogs, watermelons, and possibly several cases of beer. Your fireworks have been acquired. Your friends have been invited over. You’re ready for the weekend. But which strains will you consume?
You can’t just celebrate our nation’s birth with any old strain, and why would you when there are so many festive options to choose from! Whether you’re looking for an uplifting strain or something a little more mellow, these patriotic strains are just the ticket to ring in America’s 239th birthday!
Nothing better to get you into the spirit of the holiday than Spirit of ’76! This hybrid hails from Denver, Colorado and boasts a relaxed, uplifted high that will give you the energy you’ll need to make it through a long day of celebration. It’s also particularly well-suited to stimulating appetites, which will give you an added boost to eat that extra hot dog!
This High Times Cannabis Cup winner offers a refreshing summer lime taste and has lab-tested THC results as high as 25%. An uplifting, energetic hybrid offers heady, cerebral effects that are great at combating anxiety and depression to help ensure your spirits are lifted the whole day through. This strain promises an excellent day of celebration, with liberty and justice for all.
Say what you will about the cannabis industry and puns, we’re still suckers for good wordplay, and Danky Doodle is just that. Originally named Double D in reference to its large buds (we’ll let you make the connection there), the breeder decided to rename the strain to Danky Doodle so as not to confuse it with Double Dutch. This strain provides the full body relief you’ve come to expect with indicas, but it has a lighter, uplifted high then most. It's the perfect option to provide the pain relief you need without locking you to your couch during the day’s festivities.
God bless America(n Kush)! This indica boasts a pungent, skunky flavor profile with hints of lemon to spicy notes of lavender and coffee. Patients will benefit from the pain-relieving properties that are known to treat muscle spasms, chronic pain, and nausea. Recreational consumers will love its relaxed, euphoric high. And if you’re looking for a little help eating that last piece of watermelon, the hunger-inducing properties are just for you!
Would it really be the 4th of July without some fireworks? This hybrid isn’t quite as explosive as the firecracker that shares its name, but its happy, uplifted, energetic effects will ensure you’re ready to enjoy the magnificent explosions you’ll no doubt witness. Within moments of your first puff, you’ll feel the strong and active, mentally alert effects that will eventually give way to a smooth, more focused state that will keep you going through the show.
Once the festivities conclude and you’re looking to settle in for a good night’s sleep, Presidential OG is just the strain for you. Almost purely indica, this hard-hitting cross between Bubble Gum and OG Kush will melt your cares away, lulling you into slumber almost immediately (but not before you have a moment to enjoy the intense citrus-pine aroma this dreamy strain omits).
There you have it, folks! These strains bleed red, white, and blue, and are everything you’ll need to usher your way through this 4th of July. From all of us at Leafly to you, Happy Independence Day!
