Summer is here, and for those who enjoy their cannabis, there’s no better season for a little indulgence. Any strain is sure to blossom and shine bright during this time of year, but why not make the absolute most of these warm months before fall rolls around?

There are a handful of strains that match the summer ambiance perfectly, further enhancing this happy-go-lucky time of year. Try out a few of these bright and sunny cannabis strains in the coming months to complete your summer in the best of ways:

Blue Dream

Blue dream is a superstar among West coast cannabis strains, and over the years has made a name for itself as a go-to strain for those looking for the best way to kick back and relax. It’s a cross between Blueberry indica and sativa Haze, promoting a sense of relaxation and calmness, which slowly fades into a smooth, even euphoria. The sweet, berry-like scent it gives off pairs perfectly with a hot summer day, and the effects are excellent for both new and experienced consumers. This is a high-THC strain which is where the overwhelmingly calm effect comes from.

Orange Cookies

A combination of the ever-popular GSC and Orange Juice, Orange Cookies is full of a citrus flavor that matches the hot summer sun perfectly. The aroma this strain gives off has been compared to fresh, juicy tangerine, which is also expressed through the sweet-citrus taste. As is the case with many citrusy products, this strain promotes a happy, relaxed, and uplifting feeling that’s perfect for those hazy summer days spent at home with friends.

Pineapple Express

This strain combines everything great about summer into one simple source: bright flavor, fresh, fruity fragrances, and an energetic buzz that’ll keep your afternoon interesting. Pineapple Express is a tropical-tasting hybrid of two other noteworthy strains, Hawaiian and Trainwreck, both of which have already made a name for themselves with their strength and flavor. Pineapple Express combines the mango-apple aroma and flavor of the former with the hard-hitting euphoric power of the latter to make something entirely new and remarkable. This strain is perfectly at home at summertime parties and get-togethers with friends.

Strawberry Snow Cone

The happy, euphoric feeling that Strawberry Snow Cone promotes is ideal for lazy summer days, full of calm daydreaming. The taste is sweet and smooth, embracing the best parts of both parent plants, Strawberry Kush and Snow Cone. This strain is an excellent option for the creative mind looking for a bit of calm inspiration while controlling stress. The leaves themselves exude colorful creativity, with dark leaves shot through with pink and red tones and bright, glittering trichomes inherited from the Snow Cone parent plant.

Dos Si Dos

Do Si Dos is a highly colorful strain that promotes a feeling of relaxation and happiness that helps you harness your free time to the fullest during the summer months. The leaves are a mixture of lime green and lavender and feature glistening trichomes that make the product look like something magical. The buzz you’ll encounter is a combination of the soothing effects of GSC and the super-strong sedative effects of Face Off OG. The colorful leaves emit a pungent smell and an earthy-sweet taste that’s hard to match with other strains.
