As 2023 comes to a close, everyone has a different way of celebrating the milestone. For some, it’s a relaxing evening with friends and family to reflect on the year. Others enjoy a New Year’s Eve party with food and music. However you plan to end 2023, there is a cannabis strain that can help make the evening more enjoyable. Three strains to try as you say goodbye to this year are: Laughing Buddha, Magnum Opus, and Apples and Bananas.
Laughing Buddha is a sativa strain that is a great addition to an evening with friends reminiscing and enjoying the last days of the year. It is a cross between Jamaican and Thai sativas and has THC levels that are typically between 19-22%. It often leaves users feeling uplifted, energized, giggly, and talkative. Laughing Buddha also tends to take effect quickly, and many users say they feel a tight sensation around their temples and eyes. The fragrance is a mix of earthy and sweet citrus, and the flavor is also sweet with a bit of spice.
Magnum Opus is a popular hybrid strain that would help make any New Year’s Eve celebration even more relaxing and fun, whether it’s an evening spent chilling with friends or at a party. It is a cross between Highland Afghani, Sour Diesel, and Purple Kush. Magnum Opus has THC levels that are typically around 20%, but it is known for being a potent strain so it is likely better for more experienced cannabis users. It leaves users feeling euphoric, relaxed, and often quite social and creative. Both the flavor and aroma are an interesting mix of grape, diesel, and earthy lavender.
Apples and Bananas
Apples and Bananas is a powerful indica-dominant hybrid. It is a great choice for saying sayonara to 2023 on a pleasant and happy note, as it tends to leave users feeling aroused, happy, and very calm. Its parentage is somewhat complex but is primarily thought to come from a cross between Gelatti and Blue Power. Many individuals who suffer from anxiety and depression choose to medicate with Apples and Bananas as it leaves users feeling happy and uplifted with a sense of calm. The aroma is a strong mix of sweet fruit with undertones of spice and black pepper. The flavor is sweet and what you might expect from a strain named ‘Apples and Bananas’, as it takes like ripe bananas, pears, and slightly sour apples.
