Bring the Heat: The Best Cannabis Strains for Summer

, 22/06/2021

Summer is officially here, and warmer weather always brings a multitude of new activities to enjoy. Some people like to spend the hottest days of the season laying poolside with their friends, while others prefer the excitement of traveling to a new place every weekend. Some people love to stay active during the day, while others relish in late-night plans with friends.

While we enjoy every cannabis season, there’s something about the summer months that gives way to some pretty great recreational experiences. So what cannabis strains are the best to complement your summer plans? Here are a few of our favorites.

Super Lemon Haze

This summertime strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid of Lemon Skunk X Super Silver Haze, a two-time Cannabis Cup winner from Green House Seeds. The uniquely energetic, lively, and uplifting high that Super Lemon Haze produces is great for those who want to spend the day outside either exploring or socializing. Not only that, but its tart and sweet taste is just like the beloved Lemonheads candy from our childhoods, although not quite as sharp. A zesty, citrusy, and sweet smell accompanies this strand as well.


Another citrus-inspired favorite, Clementine, is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain that was created through a cross between the delicious Tangie X Lemon Skunk strains. Its enticing flavor and alluring effects are so captivating that this bud nabbed the 2nd place spot for Best Sativa Concentrate at the 2015 High Times’ Cannabis Cup. People have compared the sweet orange aroma to walking through an orange grove just after a rainfall — and is there anything more ‘summer’ than that? The high that comes from this strain starts with a euphoric uplifting effect that launches your mood into the clouds and leaves you feeling happy, motivated, and focused. It’s then accompanied by a relaxing body high that leaves you feeling calm and completely at ease. This is perfect for relaxing outside by the pool during the day or by a campfire at night.

Original Glue

Once known as Gorilla Glue #4, this strain is a cross between Chem’s Sister X Sour Dubb X Chocolate Diesel strains. As its name suggests, Original Glue is renowned for its body-melting effects. The high slowly builds, first hitting people with a lifted sense of euphoria and then dropping your body into a state of deep physical relaxation. This later turns into a sedative state and leaves users glued to wherever they are for hours on end. As you can imagine, you should use Original Glue when you have an entire day to yourself or will be relaxing with friends who are also prepared for hours of relaxation.

GMO Zkittlez

Another relaxing strain, GMO Zkittlez, is a rare, evenly balanced strain made by crossing GMO Cookies X Zkittlez X OG Kush strains. Its smell and taste are both sweet, fruity, and earthy. This high quickly becomes euphoric and pushes out any negative or racing thoughts you might have. You will reach new heights of happiness and calm in no time, which will gradually lull you into a state of ease and kicked-back bliss. This is a strain to try when you don’t have any major plans for the day and could be the perfect accompaniment for a beach trip where you can even catch a few Zs by the ocean.
