    The Absolute Best Strains Of Weed To Smoke On 4/20

    It's 4/20! You know what that means.

    Today is a day of celebration, and now more so than ever. There are more states with legalized recreational marijuana than ever before. That means there will be even more rolling up across the nation than we've seen in the past.

    What exactly are you rolling up, though? It's a holiday, so I'm here to tell you that you can't just smoke the same stuff you stuff in your papers every day.

    Whether that means grabbing something exotic or just trying another standard strain, I recommend spending your 4/20 smoking something different.

    I like to roll up a few different strains and have a little 4/20 buffet. Some edibles may even get thrown in the oven. It's a glorious day! However you choose to enjoy your Stoner's Christmas (aka 4/20), just be sure to keep it safe.

    But what strains should go into my 4/20 buffet?

    The number one rule here is to pick things you don't usually get. Give your body a different feeling.

    If you love sativas, maybe try some more indicas (and vice versa). Oh, and don't be afraid to spend a little extra on the numerous specials that will be going down. There's no such thing as too much weed on 4/20.

    So, in no specific order, here are the best weed (and CBD) strains to smoke on 4/20!

    1. Girl Scout Cookies

    This hybrid strain is powerful. It is indica dominant but still boasts about 40% sativa (to 60% indica). The THC levels can reach close to 30%, making it one of the most potent strains on the planet. GSC will give you the powerful indica body high mixed with a strong sativa head high. You aren't moving after this.

    2. Purple Urkle

    yk im coppin some Purple Urkel 😭

    Twitter: @pablotescobar_

    Not because it's super powerful, but more because I'm nostalgic. Jaleel White made headlines this week after donning the Steve Urkle getup once more to promote his new line of Purple Urkle variants. This strain is a great middle-of-the-road high if you want to hit something lighter before heading for the deep end.

    3. Durban Poison

    Durban Poison is a really interesting strain. It’s about as close to a true ‘sativa’ as you’ll ever find today. It’s many peoples favorite for the classic alert and focusing high. It’s also usually won’t give you munchies. The unique effects are because of THC-V.

    Twitter: @bluj999

    This sativa strain from South Africa will give you that exotic 4/20 high, so why not throw some Durban Poison into the mix?

    4. Alaskan Thunder Fuck

    Starting my day with Alaskan Thunder Fuck! 😍 #mmemberville

    Twitter: @prophetganja

    NSFW we have another sativa strain that will knock you the fuck out! This legendary bud is said to be a mix of a Cali strain, an Afgan strain, and a Russian strain. Sheesh.

    5. Mimosa

    6. Green Crack

    Green Crack for a productive day🔥 👉🏼 @Jweeds_420 👈🏼 - #weed #weeds #weedfeed #green #bud #buds #nug #budtender #mj #MaryJane #topshelf #high #kush #smoking #smoke #thc #cbd #dank #stoner #stoned #baked #cannabis #IAmCannabis #cannabisculture

    Yeah, the name is intimidating. CRACK? This strain is known to give smokers a very robust head high. The munchies are strong with this strain.

    7. Zkittlez

    🌈ZkittleZ! 🔸🔹🔺🔸🔺🔸 Grown by Gnome Grown Or. #zkittlez #nugshot #cannabis #frostynugs #indica #nugs #ganja #marihuana #MMJ #trichomes #oregonweed #HighTimesMagazine #weed #spliffwizard

    Twitter: @SpIiffWizard

    This indica strain will put you down. Like, "I was just resting my eyes and now it's 9:30 p.m." down. I love some Zkittlez, but don't say I didn't warn you.

    8. Blue Dream

    Twitter: @Cali_Railway

    Life is but a dream. A personal favorite, Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant breed that gives caffeinelike energy and focus to the smoker.

    9. Sour Diesel

    Sour Diesel is a classic strain with nice big, tight and light green buds covered in orange hairs. Get yours delivered free in #Calgary today for $129 all in! #sourdiesel #strain #buy #weed #online #calgary

    Twitter: @my28grams

    This classic strain is a favorite among New Yorkers. If you want a nice and level-feeling sativa, this is the strain to smoke. However, naps are guaranteed with Sour D. Trust.

    10. Lava Cake

    11. White Widow

    Grinding up some white widow, damn this shit is super duper sticky!!! 🤙🤙🤙💨💨💨💚💚💚 what you smoking on Fam??? #StonerFam #Mmemberville #StayLifted #CannabisComunity #TokeNation #Code420

    Twitter: @Tattooedbenny85

    Now, this isn't a Marvel spinoff flick. White Widow is known to be a true hybrid: balanced between indica and sativa. If you want the best of both worlds, try this strain on 4/20.

    12. Trainwreck

    Trainwreck didn't get its name or claim to fame in the marijuana community for no reason at all. #allbud #Trainwreck #Strain #marijuana #weed #hemp #hybrid #sativa #indica #medical #use #enjoylife #healthy #cannabis #weedlife

    Twitter: @All_Bud

    The name says it all. This mind-bending sativa strain hits like a punch to the jaw. If you want to forget what you did tomorrow, hit some Trainwreck.

    13. Jack Herer

    Twitter: @cannaworldsite

    Named after lifelong cannabis activist Jack Herer, this sativa-dominant hybrid is euphoric. The smell alone will drive you wild. Put one in the air for Mr. Herer, who is a legend.

    14. Grape Ape

    15. OG Kush

    Now that we've got the THC-heavy, weed strains covered, here are some CBD suggestions to help balance your 4/20.

    RT if you're seeing bigger nugs in your very near future ✨

    Twitter: @cheefbotanicals

    With crazy-low THC levels and high CBD levels, hemp flower looks like weed, but it's decaf. You still get cool effects (sleepy, hungry, relief) but none of the high.

    1. Northern Lights

    2. Harle-Tsu

    Harle-Tsu | #HarleTsu • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Type: CBD⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lineage: Harlequin, Sour Tsunami⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Flavor: Berry, Honey, Spicy, Sweet, Tea, Woody⠀ Effects: Body High, Euphoric, Happy, Sleepy⠀ • #cannabis #cannabiscommunity #weed #marijuana #canngaroo

    Rich in CBD, this potent strain can help clear the mind in a matter of moments. You'll need it.

    3. Pennywise

    Twitter: @datguyryry

    This strain is so strong, it's scary. (Sorry, I had to.) Pennywise CBD was created to help with PTSD and arthritis symptoms, so it should be able to handle your 4/20 high.

    4. Sour Space Candy

    Sour Space Candy is my favorite #CBD strain. It's the tastiest hemp buds to smoke alone, but definitely pairs well with other sour/diesel #cannabis strains. It's a daytime smoke for me, encouraging a light, social mood. #Mmemberville 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳

    Sour Space Candy is as delicious as it sounds. Snap yourself out of the post-4/20 fog with this crisp and sensational flower.

    5. Stephen Hawking Kush

    Stephen Hawking Kush: This High CBD Indica Is A Bit Of A Genius

    Twitter: @viajesmarihuana

    Can you guess who this is named after? It won't make you a genius, but this strain is known to clear the mind and release tension.
