Top Cannabis Strains for Hot Summer Days

Some cannabis strains may be more suitable for hot summer days or cool evenings than others, depending on their effects, flavors, and aromas. Here are some of the best weed strains we find refreshing and invigorating, and perfect to elevate any Colorado summer day.

Kush Mintz (Hybrid)

Kush Mintz is a hybrid cannabis strain known for its refreshing minty flavor and aroma. It is a cross between Bubba Kush and Animal Mints and can provide a balanced and relaxing high that may be great for hot summer days.

The Bubba Kush strain provides a sense of physical relaxation and calmness, which may benefit hot weather when you want to unwind and cool down. The animal mints strain can give a cerebral and uplifting high, which can help you feel more energized and focused during outdoor activities.

Pink Runtz (Hybrid)

Pink Runtz is a hybrid cannabis strain firmly established in the cannabis world. Its fruity taste makes it one of the best weed strains out there for the summer. Pink Runtz is a cross between Gelato and Zkittles, and it can provide a balanced and relaxing high that may be great for hot summer days. It also provides a sense of euphoria and happiness, ideal for socializing and enjoying outdoor activities during summer.

Top Cannabis Strains for a Perfect Summer Night

With mild temperatures and crystal clear skies, summer nights in Denver is like another world. When you visit us this summer, consider trying the following cannabis strains perfectly enjoyable and relaxing for any summer night.

Bubba Fett (Hybrid)

Bubba Fett is a hybrid cannabis strain that results from crossing Stardawg and Pre-98 Bubba Kush. Bubba Fett has a pungent and skunky aroma with earthy and sweet tones. This strain is best reserved for evening use because of its relaxing and sedating effects. It also improves appetite, so be sure to have snacks around as it can cause the munchies.

Ice Cream Cake (Indica)

Ice Cream Cake is an Indica cannabis strain that is a cross between Wedding Cake and Gelato #33. This strain has a creamy flavor profile with hints of vanilla and sugary dough. The Gelato #33 offers an uplifting and euphoric high that is perfect after a long, tedious day full of activities, while the Wedding Cake provides a sense of relief and calm, which helps you wind down and relax after a long day in the sun.

Garlic Punch (Hybrid)

Garlic Punch is a hybrid strain crossed between Slurrican and Platinum Purple Hulk. As the name suggests, Garlic Punch has undertones of spicy garlic and onion with a touch of spicy berries. This strain is ideal for anyone looking for instant relaxation, as the high hits you almost as soon as you exhale.

Gelato Cake (Hybrid)

Gelato Cake is an Indica dominant strain that crosses between the vanilla frosting of Wedding Cake and the cream berry of Gelato. Gelato Cake is highly potent and is one of the highest THC strains with an average of 20-25% THC level. It is best reserved for experienced users only. This vibrant strain is known to cause full-body sedation that lasts a few hours, so it is best enjoyed before bed or during a relaxing summer night.
