5 Great Wintertime Cannabis Cultivars.
By Rachel Bell
“In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.”
Cultivars aren’t necessarily seasonal, but some cultivars just exude wintertime vibes
Nothing says wintertime like a cannabis cultivar that smells like Christmas.
While cannabis cultivars can vary throughout the year, most cultivars are available year-round. There are some cultivars that stand out above the rest in terms of fitting in with winter lifestyle, though. The budtenders in Colorado say it’s common for customers to seek out specific cultivars during different seasons. They love to point folks toward Star Killer around the holidays because of its evergreen scent, but the appeal of other winter-friendly cultivars comes in the form of the highs they deliver.
Some folks want an adrenaline-packed sativa to aid in their outdoor adventures, while others are looking for the cultivar that will calm them down after a long day on the slopes. Whatever your activity of the day may be, here are five cultivars that aim to please this winter.
Star Killer – Indica
This indica cultivar is one of our favorites. While those who love it enjoy it all year, it’s an excellent wintertime cultivar because it tastes and smells like a Christmas tree.
“It has a very piney, very evergreen taste and aroma,” according to one budtender. “It’s great for relaxation and to help you sleep. I sleep so soundly on Star Killer it’s like a time warp until my alarm clock goes off.”
Jack Flash – Sativa
For an uplifting, cerebral high this winter that doesn’t affect the body a whole lot, reach for Jack Flash. The budtenders say it’s a great cultivar for spending time in the great outdoors.
It has a nice, citrusy lemon flavor with some skunky undertones, and it’s a fantastic cultivar for doing active things.
Because it’s not an anxious high, it’s great for keeping focus. Many people like to use it when doing chores around the house because it can help get you super locked in to what you’re doing.
Lucky Charms – 50/50 Indica/Sativa hybrid
This hybrid cultivar is something we recommend for a mellow activity outside like a hike because it doesn’t make most people lethargic. While it might offer a bit of an “off switch” for the brain, it won’t put you on the couch all day or night.
It also tastes like lucky charms thanks to a sweet, marshmallowy flavor.
Kandy Kush – Indica
This heavy indica should be the cannabis of choice for winter relaxation. If you’ve had a long day on the slopes, cross-country skiing or some other activity and you want to cook some dinner, watch movies and maybe hit the hot tub, this is your cultivar
Kandy Kush is a great relaxation cultivar for hanging out, chilling and shutting the brain down.
Because cultivars affect people differently, it’s possible this one could make some people sleepy, but it’s generally a dependable cultivar for relaxation.
Flight – Sativa
Flight is a cultivar that delivers none of the raciness some people might feel with other sativas. It’s a mellow, euphoric high that feels much more like a hybrid.
“It’s really stoney,” said one budtender. “It’s a good one that won’t put your body down and out like an Indica.”
The cultivars aromas and flavors are fruity and earthy — reminiscent of red wine.
