It’s the end of November, and that can only mean one thing for themed cannabis listicles – Thanksgiving and all that comes after. The primarily US holiday (although Liberia and Grenada are among its other celebrants) is all about family and food. So, what bud best intersects that?

What has colloquially become known as Danksgiving in pot circles is the most traveled holiday in the US! That means it’s taken very seriously: just like this list of strains that will set you straight.

L’Orange

If you don’t fancy being couch-locked straight after you’ve ingested 2kg of Thanksgiving dinner, L’Orange might just give you the kick you need. It clocks in at a very middle-of-the-road 15% THC, but it really is an energizing strain that’ll put some pep in your step.

It’s a very citrus-y smoke and the breeders at Cannabiotix have really leant into that. Surprisingly though, the dominant terpene in this bud is actually caryophyllene, reported to help with a variety of ailments, including anxiety.

Grape Stomper

Just love the name of this strain, although it also goes by Sour Grapes, and its slight Sativa dominance lends itself well to a post-meal puff. Just like L’Orange, it’s a fruity little number and subtly slides over the palette to give a truly grape taste (sorry we couldn’t resist).

There is a big range of potency for this particular weed – from around 16% THC all the way up to 26% – so be sure to get notes from the tender you’re picking up from, otherwise you might go from a slight head rush to a different dimension without realizing.

Poontang Pie

As it’s (post)Thanksgiving, we’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t have at least one pie-based strain on this list. Poontang Pie is an Indica-heavy hybrid that guarantees to put you firmly on your butt.

Shipping at 20% THC, this sour citrus powerhouse does a brilliant job of lifting consumers up a few minutes in, before gently putting them down for the evening. Picture it: full of food, a couple of tokes, ass planted on the couch and ready to absorb some holiday television – perfection.

Critical Mass

The only cannabis on this list with a genuinely threatening name, you could consider it a sort of prodigy, with a lineage that any plant would go green over. With roots in both Afghani and Skunk #1, this strain is just built different.

With a flowering time of 8 weeks, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any other variety out there that packs a punch of this quality, and in just a couple of months. It’s also great for stimulating appetite, so you’ll definitely be coming back for seconds at the dinner table.
