Suffering from cannabis shopping-induced confusion is real—there are so many forms, varieties, ratios, potencies, and brands to parse through nowadays, it can be incredibly overwhelming. So, next time you’re planning a trip to your local MedMen marijuana dispensary but aren’t sure what to fetch this time around, why not look to the stars for guidance? Astrology can be an interesting and fun way to delve into your personality traits, whether you’re an avid horoscope-reader or someone who doesn’t take those matters all that seriously. It can also help determine different ways your habits manifest, including your cannabis use. Below is a guide to picking out your next MedMen purchase, according to your astrological sun sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): There’s no mistaking the fact that you’re a trendsetter, Aries—a true original. Being the first to try the newest, coolest gadget really revs your engine, and you don’t mind showing it off, either. This, of course, extends to your smoking habits. So a sleek, smart vaporizer, like the DaVinci IQ, is a solid choice.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Taurus, you appreciate beauty and aesthetics and don’t mind splurging on the finer things in life. Why not purchase that luxe vape pen you’ve been eyeing? Yes, we mean the Beboe, aka the “Hermès of marijuana.” The Inspired sativa option will keep you grounded, yet blissed-out.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): The sign of dual personalities, Gemini needs something that offers the best of both worlds, like a nice hybrid from THC Design. These pre-rolls will be perfect for an easy, chill high for either a daytime activity or a night out on the town.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cancer is a creature of comfort, so a cozy strain would be the ideal choice for the sign of the crab. Opt for a nice indica, like Animal Cookies, to smoke during a night in, bingeing on your favorite Netflix shows.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Leo, you are always the life of the party, and expressing yourself without qualms is your M.O. Your cannabis tendencies should be the same way. Instead of a simple joint, choose a smoking apparatus that garners attention—like the Double Barrel from 710 KingPen.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): When it comes to being organized and efficient, Virgo truly excels.That means a couch-lock indica would likely be this sign’s worst nightmare. Opt for an energetic sativa from Lowell Herb Co. to stay focused.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Libra is the sign of the scales and a social butterfly, so either a well-balanced strain or something good for parties would be great choices. Better yet, pick up one from MedMen’s effects series, [statemade]. The 1:1 THC and CBD combo is the optimal choice for any Libran.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): As the zodiac’s most sexual sign, Scorpios enjoy taking cannabis into the bedroom. dosist’s Passionpen is a sure win in that department, but if you’re a Scorpio seeking something to help curb your intense energy, pick up a Bliss pen as well.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Sagittarius is a sign of adventure, so stay away from heavy indicas. You’ll want something good for outdoor activities, like Kin Slips Cloud Buster.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): A hardworking sign like Capricorn should opt for something relaxing, like a high-CBD strain. Try Henry’s Original CBD Ritual for a chill evening out with friends.
Aquarius (January 20- February 18): You’re imaginative, inventive, and a little bit of a daydreamer, Aquarius, which means you’re not afraid of a strong strain that takes your mind to other worlds. Pack a bowl of Strawberry Banana, and prepare for takeoff.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Pisces can be a little sensitive to outside forces, so a chill night of smoking weed at home—with something that can help you meditate—might be the best choice. Try zen from [statemade] to reach your own personal nirvana.
