Sometimes, there’s nothing better than the kind of high that locks you to the couch and leaves you floating in a fog of blissful laziness. You’re incapable of doing anything and you’ll be damned if you’re going to try…pure heaven for an evening alone.
Still, there are other times when you want to get high, but you’ve also got stuff to do. A welcome wake n bake, an afternoon pick-me-up – something that will prime you for whatever’s on your agenda.
Ideally, it needs to be something that’s controllable, so you don’t end up blasting yourself half way to Pluto by accident. You’re in need of motivation, inspiration and the energy to get things done, but not to such an extent than you’re fried off your head.
The question being – which strains to go for?
These days, you’re well and truly spoilt for choice. Whatever kind of high you’re after, it’s out there for the taking. But there are some that always rank head and shoulders above the pack, when it comes to delivering the energy boost you need, when and where you need it most.
If you ask us, you won’t do better than any of these anti-couch-lock strains:
First up, you really can’t go wrong with most Haze strains when you need to stay on the ball. Most will give you that instant hit of motivation and optimism you crave, but there are some Haze strains that are just so much tastier than others. One of which being Chocolate Haze, which has the kind of moreish aroma and flavour profile you just can’t get enough of. It can also pack a pretty powerful punch, with THC levels often hitting 20% or more. So you’ll need a good bit of self-control to keep things in check – a few hits being a great substitute for a strong coffee, but one toke too many could take things over the edge.
A strain you’ll probably know and love by now, Sour Diesel is the stuff of pure legends. It’s been around for decades and continues to delight recreational and medical cannabis users worldwide. You can count on Sour Diesel to provide you with a much more balanced buzz, along with a strong mental uplift that has an instant calming effect on the entire body. Sour Diesel is great for tackling the more mundane duties and chores throughout the day, though could be a little too sedating to get away with at work. That is, unless you’re in a line of work where creativity, inspiration and just a touch of physical laziness go hand-in-hand.
Another all-time classic every stoner needs in their life, Durban Poison is the closest equivalent to espresso you’ll find in the cannabis world. Treat yourself to a couple of hits of this stuff and the feeling is almost identical to hitting the coffee pot just a little harder than normal. Only with none of the nervous energy or jitters associated with caffeine. There’s zero numbing or physical relaxation of the body, so you’ll be primed to perform at your best. Simply outstanding and highly recommended.
Last but not least, the only real downside that comes with a batch of Green Crack is that it’s almost impossible to put down. It’s the ultimate energy-booster that hits hard, hits fast and continues hitting for hours on end. You’ll need your wits about you to stay grounded, as Green Crack can trigger the kind of mind-race that’s overwhelming for some. But if you’re looking for a sledgehammer-heavy hit of cerebral motivation with just the right amount of head-to-toe tingling, Green Crack is the strain for you.
