The holidays are a time to reconnect with friends and family. But, As the cold season comes on and the days turn to constant overcast, the transition can leave many feeling irritable, nauseated, and burnt out. Everyone loves Portland, Oregon, but even the Portland native can feel burnt out after a few months. Here at Human Collective, we have many strains to help relax and enjoy any day between now and the faraway spring- whether you are low energy, or high. But which ones to choose? These are our three favorite strains for this season, whether you share it with friends, or enjoy it by yourself in your pajamas.
Sativa: Jack Herer
There is a reason why Jack Herer is such a popular strain. The euphoric creativity this strain inspires feels like stepping outside into the crisp northwest air, taking in the scent of pine and earth. Jack Herer is a cross of Northern Lights, as well as Shiva Skunk and Haze, making this Sativa- Dominant flower a burst of relaxing energy for your day. Jack Herer is very popular with medical patients, as the uplifting effects carry on for quite some time after just a few puffs. This earthy strain will leave you feeling balanced, and ready to face the family.
Indica: Royal Purple Kush
Our Purple Kush is a relaxing strain that is helpful for pain, nausea and many other ailments. A cross of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani, this pure Indica is also a great option for nighttime. At Human Collective, this is a popular favorite, and it’s sweet, grapey flavor is enjoyed by our OMMP members, as well as our recreational customers. The heavy body feel is helpful for pain, stomach problems, and will help even your most tense muscles to relax.
Hybrid: Sour Tsunami
A beautiful strain, this high CBD strain is great for insomnia, stress, chronic pain, and other OMMP conditions.
