When the chill of winter finally wears off and the warmth of spring shines through, it’s time to get outside and enjoy some of the best strains! If you didn’t know that there are strains perfectly made for spring, well now you do and we’re going to talk about some of our favorites.
A nice, light, energetic high is perfect for enjoying the weather of spring and some outdoor activities. Nature is coming back to life at this time of year and there is so much to do, see, and experience. The smells in the air are of flowers, plants, new growth, fresh air, and warm trees. Pairing this vibe with the perfect strain can make for a wonderful experience.
This is the true definition of flower power.
Spring is the season of rebirth, of light, and of new beginnings. Cannabis is a great way to help usher us through these transitional times while we reconnect with Mother Nature. And after a brutal winter, this is like therapy.
Best Strains for Springtime Weather
While you may be thinking, “all weed is great to smoke all the time!” You’d be right, of course, but there are some strains that are better suited for daytime and great weather than others.
We’ll also talk about edibles and dabs for the springtime weather. There are so many ways to include cannabis in your celebrations. Get ready to light up, mellow out, and enjoy all that Colorado has to offer in spring.
Typically you’re going to want a strain with a decent percentage of THC, but not too much that you’re blasted after one rip. Keeping it chill on a nice day is the key to long lasting fun and an effortless flow.
Avoiding Indica strains will keep you off the couch and ensure you’re able to get out and get some good weather. Indica strains can be too heavy for the daytime as they are going to be more of a body high than a mind high. Referred to as “in da couch” indica strains are great for evening and before bed or long travel. You’ll be too relaxed and might feel heavy if you smoke during the day with a list of fun outdoor activities.
Stick to sativa strains for a mental vacation and the energy you need to power through hikes, bike rides, walks, and general adventuring. If you’re looking to tackle your spring cleaning while high, we’ve got the perfect guide for that.
Whether you’re getting ready to celebrate 4/20 or you’re just in a good mood because the sun is shining, these are the best strains for springtime weather.
One of the best strains for sure is Pineapple Express. Blue kush is an Indica hybrid that displays the sweet berry flavors of Blue God with the powerful kush flavor of OG Kush. Strong flavors of pine and lemon hit at the back end and the high is full of good vibes and uplifting thoughts. This strain exhibits the perfect balance of effects both motivational and relaxing.
THC: 16.79% – 22.71%
Red Headed Stranger is an energizing sativa strain named in homage to the 1975 album by Willie Nelson.

Durban Poison – This pure Sativa originates from the South African port city of Durban. It has gained notoriety worldwide for its sweet smell and energetic, uplifting effects. Durban Poison is the perfect strain to help you stay productive through a busy day, when exploring the outdoors, or to lend a spark of creativity. The buds are round and chunky, and leave a thick coating of trichomes on almost all areas of the plant.
Sour Joker is the stimulating sativa blend of Amnesia Haze and East Coast Sour Diesel (ECSD). This amped combination offers consumers a vigorous body buzz that is clear-headed and motivating, encouraging physical activity in or outside. Harness the mental clarity of this strain at lower doses and the fueled-up stimulation with continued use.
