Even if you haven’t got a little Irish in ya, most everyone enjoys celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. It’s an excuse to drink some Guinness, eat some soda bread and corned beef hash, and pinch forgetful friends who aren’t wearing some green.
This being Leafly, of course, we have a list of strains with a little green and some other magic to help you celebrate St. Paddy’s Day.
Known for its energizing effects, Green Crack will pack a punch. This high-powered sativa is not for the faint of heart, as it’s known to bring a clear, focused head high, perfect for getting things done.
Pot of Gold
This heavy indica is known as a pain-reliever, sleep-inducer, and giggle-maker. With sticky buds and a hashy taste, Pot of Gold will most likely make you curl up for a nap, so be sure to bring a blanket if you decide to look for the end of the rainbow.
Just like your favorite cereal, Lucky Charms has a bright, tangy, fruity taste, and it partly gets its name for having nugs frosted in sugary trichomes. Known for its euphoric effects, this is a good strain for doodling or getting creative.
Crossing Green Crack and Space Queen, Green Queen is a skunky strain with some subtle sweet notes. It’s known for bringing a potent, euphoric head high, but one that’s not too intense—something parent Green Crack can easily do. Green Queen is a great strain to boost your mood and get the job done.
Crossing Green Crack and Purple Kush, Green Kush has the best of both world—a cerebral high, balanced out by a mellow body buzz. This is a great all-around strain, perfect for a walk on a sunny afternoon and for winding down at the end of the night.
