You’ll feel this flavorful strain all over but will still be able to get up and get out to do whatever you’ve got planned for the day. It’s a pleasant, balancing buzz that won’t sneak up on you and steal your energy.



Jack Herer and G13 Haze make up this potent sativa hybrid that will make you feel cheerful, creative and carefree. It’s a stimulating strain that kicks in quickly and pleasantly lingers with its heavy cerebral buzz. Keep in mind, though, if you overdo it, you might be left a little more stoney than planned.

Deep greens and shades of purple make this sweet, fruity look just as good as it tastes. The high is hits heavy but you’ll be left feeling dreamy, floaty and very happy. It’s a potent strain, so first-timers and people with low tolerances should tread lightly.
