The Best Cannabis Strains for Wintertime Activities (According to Leafly Reviewers)

From all of us here at Leafly, happy new year! No doubt you’ve already crafted your list of resolutions for 2016. Perhaps one of your new to-dos is to get moving after a solid few weeks of chowing down mostly on Christmas cookies and hot cocoa. But alas, winter weather can get in the way of good intentions.

Don’t be deterred! For one thing, the days are already getting longer, and for another, certain cannabis strains are great for beating the winter blues. Whether you’re planning on hitting the slopes or tromping through the snow, here are just a few Leafly user-recommended strains perfect for wintertime activities.


For Snow Sports

Leafly "Durban Poison" cannabis strain tile “I smoked this on a fresh ½-ft powder day skiing on the mountain and I’ll just say that I’ve never had any spiritual experience like this before.” –showell961


Leafly "Bubba Kush" cannabis strain tile “I just got back from a day of snowboarding…it completely eliminated the soreness.” –JaredBrueckner


Leafly "Maui Waui" cannabis strain tile “I’ve smoked this strain hiking, and fully connected with Mother Nature. I could feel the peace around me…snow would drop from the trees and lightly fall on my face. I watched a deer run past me with a confused look on his face, and enjoyed watching him, wondering what it was like to be him.” –EntropicFlower


For Snow Leisure

Leafly "Sour Diesel" cannabis strain tile “We were all walking in the snow, I felt like I was in a winter f****** wonderland or some shit. Everything was so vivid.” –hemispheres2112


Leafly "Blue Dream" cannabis strain tile “Feels like you’re Christopher Walken in a Winter Wonderland.” –FoolofaTook


For Getting Out of the House

Leafly "Super Silver Haze" cannabis strain tile “This one keeps away the winter blues, SAD, and depression.” –avonsac


Leafly "Kali Mist" cannabis strain tile “I first felt it in my face, but instead of the pressure behind the eyes I got a warm glowing sensation under my eyes on top of my cheeks. Next as it spread over my body I became extremely euphoric and talkative. I also became very energetic which was perfect as we decided to walk old Amsterdam and with the Kali Mist in my system…the exciting hustle and bustle made for a memorable experience.” –London_1985


Leafly "Jack Herer" cannabis strain tile “Gets you out of the house to get some vitamin D and beat the winter blues.” –Puffalo


For Après-Activity Coziness

Leafly "Master Kush" cannabis strain tile “I get couched easily, but this had me in the kitchen, cooking dinner, playing my songs through my speakers on full blast.” –arp716


Leafly "Alice in Wonderland" cannabis strain tile “Endless rainy days and nights getting to you? Us too, but not after a couple of inhalations of this. It simply does all the things a strong sativa-dominant hybrid should do…Perfect for those endless winter days.” –lamabso


Leafly "Raspberry Kush" cannabis strain tile “Such a cozy, creative high. The flavor of smoke is so yummy and smooth. One hit, and it’s like being snuggled in blankets with a warm cup of tea.” –StarlingDarling
