Here's Your Cannabis Strain Horoscope

Here's Your Cannabis Strain Horoscope

BY MARIE LODI

We all have our go-to cannabis strains, the trusty, tried-and-true varieties we aim to always have on hand. But if you want to venture outside of your signature strains and try something new, you can seek the advice of a different kind of budtender—the zodiac. If the stars can somewhat determine our personality traits, careers, and romantic partners, why can’t they help us discover some dank nugs?

The next time you head to your nearest MedMen cannabis retailer, pick up a strain inspired by your star sign, based on the recommendations ahead.

Aries (March 21 - April 19):
You’re a firecracker, Aries, and are never afraid to admit you love to revel in attention. That means an anti-social strain isn’t an ideal choice for extroverts like you. Look for something that will allow you to be your chatty self, like a buzzy bud of Durban Poison.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20):
Taurus, you’re not a fan of surprises, so a tried-and-true cannabis strain is the one for you. While AK-47may have an aggressive-sounding name, it’s a high-quality hybrid that’ll make you a mellow, happy little Bull. Ever an adorer of the luxurious, finer things in life, you’ll also appreciate its stunning coat of sparkling trichs and the fact that it has won multiple awards.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20):
A charming, restless social butterfly like you, Gemini, either needs a sativa to keep you moving, or a little something to slow you down. Instead of an indica, go for a hybrid strain, like Connect, which will balance you out, allowing you to simultaneously chill and hold great conversation. After all, you’re ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22):
Cozy Cancer either needs a solid couch-hugging strain, something that will let you cook up a nice comforting meal, or, ideally, something smack dab in the middle. A strain like the sativa-dominant hybrid Blue Dreamwill bring on a relaxing body high while also letting you focus on a mellow activity, like, say, cooking up a buttery grilled cheese.

Leo (July 23 - August 22):
Leo, a gregarious sign like yourself already gets high on entertaining social interactions, so why not find a strain that lets you be the effervescent life of the party that you are? Translation: no indicas, please. Instead, pack a bowl with a classic sativa strain like Jack Herer.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22):
The ideal strain for you, our hard-working, analytical Virgo, is definitelynot an indica. You’ll need something that will allow you to get stuff done, like a fat blunt of Green Dream. However, it’s also good to let yourself mellow out once in a while, so don’t be afraid to try a hybrid strain if this option feels too buzzy.

Libra (September 23 - October 22):
Balance is your middle name, Libra, so a hybrid is an obvious choice for your perfect strain. Go for something that will allow you to kick up your feet and enjoy your time—you hate having to rush, after all—but won’t cause you to feel blitzed out of your mind. Try Trainwreckfor that optimal, happy medium of a high.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21):
Dear Scorpio, some might say you’re intense—which you are, of course—but your mystery and allure is often misunderstood. Try a sativa, like Sour Tangie, to make you feel euphoric and energetic without drumming up anxious feelings.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21):
There isn’t a sign that’s nearly as much of a lively, free-wheeling spirit like you, Sagittarius, so a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid is what you should seek out. Black Jackis an optimal strain to let you truly express yourself.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19):
  Practical and determined Capricorn, you bust your butt all day, so give yourself permission to chill out with a euphoric body high every now and then. Opt for some indica flower, like Dark Dosi.

Aquarius (January 20-  February 18):
You’ve got the biggest imagination out of all the signs, Aquarius, so a high-THC strain is something you can have a lot of fun with. Grab a couple of Ghost OGjoints and enjoy that potent high.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20):
Pisces, your sensitive nature requires something that isn’t overstimulating. A high-CBD strain, like CBD Coast, is the perfect antidote when dealing with the stressful outside world. Relax your brain and let your troubles melt away.
