Earth Day: 5 Top Strains to Get You Closer to Mother Earth
April 22nd of every year gets celebrated around the globe, even if you’re not sure which holiday lands on that date (it’s Earth Day by the way). Earth Day has been celebrated since back in 1970, when then-US Senator Gaylord Nelson reinvented the idea from peace activist John McConnell as an environmental teach-in. Ever since then it’s changed a bit into the celebration of Earth and peace.
It’s about getting out and enjoying the beautiful scenery Mother Nature provides us, and giving our respects back. That’s why many preferred activities are all focused on being outside; hiking, camping and picking up trash thrown on the ground are three of the big ones to name a few, so finding the best strains suited for the occasion can be a challenge for those inexperienced in the plethora of choices. Here’s the five best strains we could think of to really keep the Earth Day celebration going regardless of what you’re doing!
Since most people choose to enjoy Earth Day out in the wilderness with either a hike or a camping trip, the first strain we wanted to talk about had to be perfect for them – Kaia Kush. It’s 60% sativa and 40% indica end up evening each other out, allowing you to focus on whatever task is at hand. It relaxes you without sapping your energy and even has a fairly long high-time, all while relieving muscle fatigue and keeping that sense of wonder you get when stoned in the great outdoors!
Those without the option to camp or hike for whatever reason (we won’t judge, don’t worry) can still enjoy being outside; there’s parks and fields galore, just waiting for you to pick your spot. Picnics are another long-standing favorite where you can sit back and enjoy some good food and good company, and Boysenberry is a fantastic match; it’s got a very nice body high to it and really helps make you more sociable all at once!
The strain, the myth, the legend. Jack Herer is one of the most popular and widely known strains available today that just so happens to be a perfect strain for an active Earth Day. It gives you the energy to move with some added pep in your step and a better outlook on your surroundings. What better way to promote peace than will a bit of joy?
Tommy’s Home Grown
For anyone looking to give a little back this year by volunteering for any of the trash pickup gatherings, a little of Tommy’s Home Grown is right up your alley. When you want to be a little out of it yet still functional (like when you’re cleaning), THG can surprise you with how well it manages both of them. With an earthy, herbal and nutty taste it won’t even feel like you’re working!

When the day winds down to an end you’ll probably want something to help your body relax for bedtime, especially after a day out in the sun. Dream Berry is a strain the lives up to it’s name, because it smokes like a dream. Crossed from Blue Dream and Blackberry, it sports a berry-like sweetness in both flavor and aroma almost like a sativa would, but don’t be fooled. One bowl of this and you’ll be sitting back ready to call it a night in no time as all the pain and soreness from the day just melts.
