Zodiac Signs & Cannabis: What Strain Suits Your Horoscope?

Sunday October 25, 2020

F or as long as humans have been consuming cannabis, they have been studying the stars. It’s believed that the Babylonians were the first to develop their own form of horoscopes, featuring the familiar zodiac symbols like the Gemini twins, the Cancer crab, and Pisces fish. Around 2,100 years ago, astrology made its way to the eastern Mediterranean and morphed into the Greek style of mythology, which remains essentially intact to this day. Your sun sign (AKA zodiac sign, astrological sign) is decided by your birthday and may represent your preferences, core personality, sense of self, and how you move through the world. It could also reveal your blind spots and weaknesses.

Could cannabis enlighten one of your sun sign blind spots? Or make someone with a supposedly stubborn sign like Taurus less bullheaded? Let’s explore how cannabis could affect for better or worse the main traits of your astrological sign.

Date Range: March 21 – April 19

Characteristics: Eager, Dynamic, Quick, Competitive

Easy there, Aries! All that competition and eagerness has you champing at the bit. Why not calm down with a nice and relaxing indica guaranteed to make you smile.

For the sensual and creative bull, a nice uplifting and cerebral sativa to spark your creativity and refresh your mind.

Just like the planet that rules this sign, Mercury, sometimes Geminis can spin too fast. Afghan Kush will help slow you down and take in the world with more awareness.

Being tuned in to other people’s emotions all the time can really bring down your mood. So, how about an uplifting and positive strain for change of pace?

For the mysterious and serious Scorpio, this sativa-dominant hybrid will lift you up mentally while helping you relax.

A classic mood elevator and body relaxant, it’s a perfect strain to highlight all of a Sagittarian’s best qualities.

For the oh-so-serious Capricorn, a motivational, buzzy, relaxed, and mood-elevating experience.

The Ultimate Guide to Weed, According to Your Zodiac Sign

All zodiac signs love getting stoned, but how should you blaze depending on yours?

We asked Broadly staff astrologer Annabel Gat, astrologers Lisa Stardust and Caitlin McGarry, and horoscope writer Randon Rosenbohm to find out. For instance, ultra-emotional water signs (Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio) may do better with a calming indica, as a hyper-alert sativa may leave them drowning and unable to regulate their feelings.

Remember that while our sun signs can act as guiding lights through the sky, we’re all still individuals that benefit from different things. “Our sun sign is just one piece of our chart. When we are born, there are plenty of other planets, and they could be anywhere on the Zodiac wheel. And since we were born, as we are growing up, we have many more experiences that form who we are,” Gat says.

So, start by reading more about your sign’s relationship to weed below, but for a more comprehensive astrological understanding of your relationship to cannabis, consult a professional who can take a look at your entire chart. If you find yourself feeling dubious about looking at your relationship to weed through the lens of astrology, light up a doobie instead of yelling about it on the internet, chill out, and just read some fun horoscopes:
