It's the season for pressing “restart.” The sun is shining, birds are singing, bees are buzzing and you're looking for a new strain to put some pep in your step. While sticking to the same old game plan might be appealing, the truth is we all need to change it up from time to time and introduce some novelty into our lives. A fresh new terpene and cannabinoid profile might be just the thing. Well we've got you covered, dear reader. Here's a list of strains that make our tails wag and our eyes light up.
Orange Blossom Special
A sativa-dominant hybrid that smells of orange and tangerine. It tastes sweet and rich, with sharp highlights. This strain's lineage hails from the legendary Clementine, and it carries many of its parent's mood-enhancing characteristics. This strain is perfect for those seeking relief from depression or anxiety.
A sour-smelling hybrid with a tangy diesel flavor that's tempered by a swampy sweetness. Despite the name, you'll only have sweet dreams with this heady strain. You won't experience much couch lock with this one, but you will notice its powerfully relaxing effects make sleeping or relaxing much easier.
A sativa-dominant hybrid that will keep you on your toes. This strain smells sweet and grassy and tastes like candy. Possibly named after the intense paranoia it induces in some users, this high-octane Girl Scout Cookies-derived strain is not meant for the amateur. But if you enjoy daytime focus and high energy, this one's for you.
A true hybrid with lemony flavors and a tart smell. A well-balanced hybrid leads to a well-balanced experience. THC Bomb always has you covered. It's relaxing, but not heady—inspiring but not edgy. This strain works great for battling pain, anxiety, ocular pressure and stress. The tasty flavor is just the icing on the cake.
A hybrid strain that smells of zippy diesel. Here's one of the classic strains that still knows how to hang with the big dawgs.

Girl Scout Cookies
A true hybrid that dominates the field with its well-rounded terpene profile and inspiring effects. It smells minty and piney, and tastes sweet. A definite challenger in the race for the greatest strain of all time, it's well known for inspiring creativity and a positive mood while having a significant effect on pain and tension.
A great hybrid that smells skunky and grassy. B4 is commonly produced in our area as a CBD-rich strain. Its relaxing and upbeat effects are marked by a heightened sense of attention and a significantly lowered level of pain. A wonderful option for those who need daytime relief but want to avoid the highs.
An indica-dominant hybrid that smells fruity and bright. This strain tastes like candy with sharp floral highlights. Its heady effects will keep you relaxed and dreamy while it goes to work on the aches and pains in your joint. While it probably won't knock you out, it will definitely help anyone suffering from stress-induced insomnia.
An indica-dominant strain that smells sweet and syrupy. This one tastes swampy and makes you feel swampy. Don't try watching any boring documentaries after a bowl of this heavy monster, because you'll likely be off on a journey to dreamland. This strain is perfect for patients with ocular pressure and inflammation issues.
Pre ’98 Bubba Kush
A classic indica strain that tastes like rich chocolate and smells like a forest. This Kush carries with it the imprint of the late '90s—laid-back, shoulder-shrugging cool spiked with moments of self-consciousness. This strain sports a powerful body high that will help anyone with pain or sleep troubles.
