On National Coffee Day, strains that double as a pick me up can help you celebrate. If you weren’t already aware caffeine makes cannabis more enjoyable. Wake and bake with a high-energy sativa strain as you wait for your morning coffee. Start the coffee maker, pack a bowl and get roasted with your coffee. To celebrate everyone’s favorite legal stimulant, check out High Time’s official National Coffee Day strains.
Chocolope is one of the best National Coffee Day strains because it has a coffee-like flavor when smoked. Not to mention, it’s a sativa that will work with, instead of fighting against, the energetic buzz you get from coffee. It’s a great strain for starting your day with or without the coffee on the side. You’ll be euphoric, relieved of stress and ready to take on the day.
Girl Scout Cookies
Who doesn’t enjoy a cookie or biscuit with their morning coffee? The Girl Scout Cookies strain will make you hungry rather than full. GSC is a hybrid strain which is great for coffee. Hybrids provide energy, productivity and calming effects to balance out a caffeine buzz.
Want the energy of a sativa without getting stoned from too much THC?
You can still consume coffee and a strain that won’t add much to the buzz. If anything, a CBD strain like Sour Tsunami will ease your pain and balance you out without getting you high AF. Sour Tsunami is a sativa-dominant hybrid that will make your body feel great. On top of that, you’ll enjoy a head high that is mildly energetic but never overwhelming. The coffee will give you any additional boost that you might need for the day.
Didn’t get much sleep last night? Coffee alone might not do the trick. You’ll want to go for National Coffee Day strains that are high in energy. If you really want a boost to your buzz, give Green Crack a shot. The name comes from the fact that you’ll have the energy of a crackhead after smoking it. Fortunately, it won’t come with all of the life-ruining qualities.
Caramel Kona Coffee Kush
The most fitting National Coffee Day strain is Caramel Kona Coffee Kush. It is an indica-dominant strain. So it’s a good one to balance you out if the caffeine is doing too much. It’s still 30 percent sativa, so you can be creative without falling right asleep. Just don’t smoke too much of it or you might end up locked to the couch. This strain is perfect for pairing with coffee because each pull gives off the taste of sweet caramel and spicy coffee.
