weed strains that make you hallucinate

7 weed strains for different situations

Choosing which weed to smoke can be a little intimidating. You want to chase certain feelings and flavors, but with there being so many cannabis strains, it’s sometimes tough to know what’s right for you. But don’t trip, because we’re here to help you with seven strains for a variety of common situations.

It’s important to note that cannabis provides each person with their own experience. What may make your body sleepy could make the next smoker feel uplifted or energetic. Ultimately, it’s up to you to figure out what does and does not work with your body.

For a bright wake ‘n bake | Chocolope

Stash a bowl of Chocolope right next to your alarm clock because it’s one of the best wake ‘n bake strains out there. It takes just a few hits before this cross of Cannalope Haze and Chocolate Thai hit you with clear-headed and energizing effects that get you up and ready to tackle the day’s to-do list.

Chocolope’s hairy buds produce a coffee bean aroma with a chocolate hash flavor on the smoke. Though many consumers champion Chocolope for it’s energizing and clear-headed effects, it’s worth noting that some consider it a little racy, so be sure to mind your dosage.

For an afternoon pick-me-up | Black Cherry Soda

Throughout the day, you may find yourself craving a little afternoon boost in morale. Whether that’s because work is bogging you down, the world is in a pandemic, or simply because you’ve come down from your wake ‘n bake, there’s one strain that’s tried-and-true for the situation: Black Cherry Soda.

With its dark fruity flavor and purple-hued buds, many expect Black Cherry Soda to be a knockout, but even its most potent high tends to be even-keeled and mild. Instead of relaxed and sleepy, you’ll probably feel euphoric, centered, and carefree, so take a few hits and finish out the day strong.

Being an indica-dominant hybrid, the Black Cherry Soda strain is a great example of why indica and sativa can’t be seen as a guide for how weed will make you feel.

For post-work or post-workout | White Widow

At the end of a long day or strenuous activity, we all need to decompress. We need something to make us feel good while also relaxing our mind and body. Say hello to White Widow.

White Widow is a classic weed strain known all around the world. It was bred in Amsterdam by crossing a couple of landrace strains, and the result gave us a perfect hybrid of uplifting and relaxing effects. It’s a potent high, but it’s a euphoric high, making you feel giggly and centered. If you’re looking to kick back and smile for the next few hours, this is what you should be smoking.

For sleepytime | Purple Punch

Nate Dogg said “Heyayayay, smoke weed every day” and he was damn right. But he never told us specifically when to smoke weed every day. While some of us enjoy smoking all day long, many cannabis consumers prefer to only smoke right before bed so they can get the best sleep of their lives.

When it comes to choosing a sleepy cannabis strain to put you down for the count, you want something potent; something heavy; something that’ll hit your body with an instant feeling of sedation and couch-lock. Purple Punch is a great strain for the occasion.

Purple Punch crosses two heavy-hitters — Granddaddy Purple and Larry OG — to give us a grape and berry flavored treat that’ll have the “Are you still watching?” Netflix screen staring at you for hours. It’s that potent, with THC content usually passing 20% with ease. This flower is absolutely flushed with trichomes, which makes Purple Punch an excellent strain to dab or vape. Flavor matters.

For delicious taste | Zkittlez

Speaking of flavor, when it comes to choosing a strain for taste rather than effects, you’d be doing yourself a favor by lighting up some Zkittlez.

Though potent in some batches, this cross of Grape Ape and Grapefruit tends to be somewhat middling in effects, leaving consumers feeling relaxed but still alert and focused enough for creative activities like writing, painting, and drawing up a plan to take over the world.

While the effects are great, the flavor is the real reason to champion Zkittlez. It’s straight-up like smoking a purple popsicle. The flavors are sweet, fruity, and coat your mouth in a way that’ll feel like you just drank a berry-mixed smoothie.

For maximum potency | GMO Cookies

Sometimes you want to be absolutely floored by a cannabis strain. You don’t necessarily want to be sleepy, but you want to be so stoned that you can no longer feel toes wiggle. If you’re looking for one of those ear-popping strains that’ll leave you thinking, “Whewwww, boy; that is some GAS!” then GMO Cookies should 100% be your next smoke.

GMO Cookies — also known as Garlic Cookies — crosses Chemdog, the grandfather of diesel strains and many of your favorite strains today, with GSC, one of the new-age legends of the cannabis strain-o-sphere. It has a very pungent and unique aroma of onions, mushrooms, and skunk, while the flavor is much of the same, backed by sour undertones. If fettuccine alfredo was a cannabis strain, it would be Garlic Cookies.

Novice consumers should tread lightly when it comes to GMO because it only takes a couple of hits before your body turns into a schedule-clearing puddle of inactivity.

And like. on the lowest of keys. if you’ve been wanting to try Gary Payton from Cookies, but that $60 eighth is too rich for your blood, it has some striking similarities in appearance, flavor, and effects to GMO.

For a major mood-boost | Island Sweet Skunk

One of the biggest reasons people like to smoke weed is because it can help boost your mood. Many cannabis strains provide happy and euphoric feelings, but few do so with the power, consistency, and reputation of Island Sweet Skunk, sometimes named Sweet Island Skunk.

Island Sweet Skunk is a sativa-dominant hybrid with sticky green and orange buds that kick out sweet, tropical, and citrus flavors. The effects of this strain are the definition of being on Cloud 9. Few hits of I.S.S. and you’ll feel goofy, giggly, happy, and without a care in the entire universe.

If there’s any strain on this list that you should try, for whatever reason, at any time of day, it’s Island Sweet Skunk.

Here Are 5 Super Strong Weed Strains To Melt Your Mind

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

Crunked up. Smoked out. There are many ways to describe that mind numbing body shaking high you get from potent strains of marijuana, but do you know just which ones could completely end your day?

The secret to knowing the weed that will make you giggly and the weed that will blow your mind is understanding the THC level. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinod and the amount in each strain determines the potency. Depending on things like growth cycles, the same strain might vary in THC levels, but as a rule of thumb this is the number to look for.

When I say marijuana here, I’m generally referring to the “bud,” the green sticky icky leaves that you crumble up and put in your pipe or joint. Other types of cannabis – such as hash oil – might have a far higher THC content, but you want the green high right?

Just to give context, marijuana strains tend to have 10-20% THC, and anything above that is considered pretty strong. THC stimulates receptors in the brain that are related to memory, time perception, pleasure and releases dopamine. The stronger the THC level in the weed, the more likely you’ll hallucinate, or “mong out.”

What else should you know? Understanding the difference between indica and sativa is key. Both are types of marijuana, but the effects they provide tend to fall into two distinct camps: Think of indica as a nightcap and sativa as a morning coffee.

Both indica and sativa are plants that marijuana is harvested from, but the plants are different. Indica plants are short and wide, and sativa plants are tall and slim. Indica plants are what most homegrown versions would be as they are suitable for indoors while sativa plants – which can grow up to 25 feet.

The properties of the weed are as follows: indica produces a “body high”, the kind that will make your eyeballs burn and your body feel heavy. Sativa is more uplifting and euphoric.

But if brain blowing full body paralysis is what you want, we have accumulated the top five strains to blow your mind. (Disclaimer: Fusion is not liable for any actions you may take while under the influence. Happy 4/20.)

1. Australian Marijuana

The current winner of all the strains is an undisclosed variant from Australia. Wait – don’t protest too much, here, the said strain is estimated to be at 40% potency, that’s basically twice the average weed strength,and significantly higher than anything you can buy ANYWHERE in the USA. Why so high? Well, answers are conflicting, but basically the Australian climate is thought to be conducive to cultivating marijuana strains that are very potent, and a recent study on some of the weed seized backs this up.

“The first comprehensive Australian data on street-level cannabis potency, through analysis of cannabis seizures obtained from New South Wales,” wrote science journal PLos One , and this study showed a number of marijuana strains with an unnaturally high THC level. I guess the Ozzies have other exports to go with coal, uranium and sexy surfer dudes now…

2. Pitbull Marijuana

Forget about “Timber,” think about the aggressive – and by this we mean chronic strong – properties. Pitbull is a strain created by Stoney Girl Gardens (yes, best name ever). Created in 2003, it’s a blend of two seeds strains , the adorably named Sugar Plum and P91. Described as a “fruity and earthy mix” it clocks in at around 36% THC.

So what do you need to know about this? Well Pitbull is strong to smoke AND easy to grow, which is an ideal situation. Good for rainy climates it flowers quickly with lots of crystals – crystals on plants indicate potency- and can grow to 16 foot tall. “Usually one hit is all your guest should be allowed to have. Any more and you might as well plan a full evening,” the creators wrote on their website.

That’s a good accolade- when the creators needs to warn you about the strength!

3.White Russian Marijuana

Most weed smokers are familiar with White Widow weed. It refers to a strain of weed that was very popular in the early 2000’s. Back then it was considered one of the strongest available, but nowadays more modern engineered strains have overtaken it in terms of potency- thought the buzz is still known as being a euphoric and energetic high, ideal for creative conversations with your friends.

But now we have White Russian marijuana. Yes, it’s the same name as the delicious cocktail and Big Lebowski favorite but far, far stronger.

Leafly – a web service often described as the Cannabis Yelp as it combines user reviews with dispensary information – described White Russian as having energetic, euphoric, creative, happy and uplifted effects (and yes, those are all considered separate side effects).

White Russian was created as a cross-strain (where two blends are mixed and grow together) of White Widow and AK-47. THC levels have been measured as around 22-24% and though there are higher THC strains, this particular bud is well loved for creating an alert high, rather than sending you to sleep.

4. Ice Marijuana

The term “Ice” has a bad rep nowadays, with far too many associations of methamphetamine and people who go loopy on it. But it’s not something to avoid when it comes to cannabis. Ice is one of those strains that belongs to the old school; available since the 90’s, and has history of performing well, winning the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1998. Cannabis Search described it as “a crossing of the finest red skunk strains with resinous white strains, both of which have been very popular amongst Dutch growers since the middle of the nineties.” The strain is a hybrid of other, popular strong strains which include Northern Light, Afghan, Skunk and Shiva.

When this strain is ready to harvest, the plant becomes covered in what look like little icicles and the sheer abundance of them has given this strain its name. The THC content tends to be below 20%, but numbers aren’t the only factor here, as users consistently report that this will get you F**ked up with a capital F.

5. OG Head Cheese

We were unsure about sharing this extremely potent strain with you, as though it’s renowned for being eye-rollingly intense, it’s also rare, and we do hate to be a tease. Still, if you were to see this on a dispensary menu you’d be foolish to pass up on it. Originally created in the Santa Cruz mountains, the strain is derived from two potent mothers – the Headband strain and the Cheese strain.

The Sticky Guide says that, “Effects tend to be felt in the head first, generally around the eyes, then spread throughout the entire body, producing muscle relaxation and even some tingly numbness.” THC wise, it sits around the 25% mark and has an odd cheesy aroma (hence the name). Iread Culture said that, “the buds strike just the right balance of density and moisture, translating to even-burning joints and bowls you don’t have to wrestle with to keep lit. The flavor is like a good Swiss variety of cheese—savory without being too sharp.”

This list isn’t intended to cover every strong strain that exists, but hopes to give you a good guide to getting your smoke on… big time.

Crunked up. Smoked out. There are many ways to describe that mind numbing body shaking high you get from potent strains of marijuana, but do you know just which ones could completely end your day?
