Have you ever had the urge to have a smoke but have had to somehow maintain focus at the same time? It’s not an easy task to maintain the balance, especially with the many powerful and delectable strains going around nowadays. After all, the basic idea behind recreational smoking is to relax and forget about your worries, so focus is often the least of your priorities.
That being said, there are a number of strains on the market that allow you to have your bud and smoke it too, so to speak. Here we have put together a list of some truly amazing strains that can be consumed in reasonable quantities without turning you into a zombie.
Headband is a high-quality Sativa that is characterized by dense, dark-green buds with plenty of orange hairs. The nugs tend to be quite sizeable, which is a good thing, because you will definitely want plenty of it around! With a beguilingly sweet skunky smell that gives off hints of pine, Headband is a great choice for toking up without getting too down and out. Headband allows you to maintain focus and eases depression.
2. Tiger Blood OG
A truly fine Indica of the highest order, Tiger Blood OG looks just as impressive as its name would suggest. Like most other OGs, this one boasts of plenty of bright orange hairs, so you know you are in for a treat even before you light up. The buds tend toward the large side, and they can be quite sticky and difficult to break up. Despite its imposing appearance however, Tiger Blood OG is remarkable at helping you maintain focus.
A Sativa dominant strain, POG (Pot of Gold) is another high-quality hybrid that makes an excellent choice for those who want the high without the zombifying effects. A blend of the finest Hindu Kush and Skunk#1, this one looks quality from first sight. The buds aren’t really all that large compared to the other strains here, but they are very densely packed. Better still, each bud is positively loaded with trichomes, so you know you are in for a good time!
4. Kandy Skunk
One of the very highest quality buds you could ever hope to come across, Kandy Skunk is a marvelous blend of Kandy Kush and Skunk#1. A Sativa dominant strain, this one also boasts of loads of orange trichomes. The smell it gives off is simply fantastic and reminiscent of hard candy. It has to be said that Kandy Skunk smoke is a bit harsh on the way in, but the high is definitely worth it.
5. Platinum Bubba Kush
Finally, we close out with another top-shelf bud. This Indica dominant hybrid consistently scores high marks in cannabis competitions from the United States to Europe, and for good reason. You get a bunch of orange trichomes that give a hint of the potency and flavor locked within, and you definitely won’t be disappointed. With a sweet candy-like flavor and skunky-sweet smell, Platinum Bubba Kush is what a good Kush is all about.
