Three of the Best Marijuana Strains for Summer 2023


Summer is typically a time for fun in the sun and relaxation. People often choose the summer months to take vacations and trips with friends and family. Whatever your plans, and whether you are looking to stay energized or unwind and relax, countless cannabis strains are perfect for summertime. Some marijuana strains even have names that sound just perfect for summer. Three that are a great place to start are Georgia Pie, Apple Tartz, and Runtz.

Georgia Pie 

Georgia Pie is a powerful summer strain from Seed Junky Genetics. It was created by crossing Gelatti and Kush Mints. It is considered a very potent strain and is best for more experienced cannabis consumers, as the THC content in Georgia Pie is typically around 24-26%. The taste is smooth and is very similar to the flavors in a peach cobbler with a fragrance full of earthy tree fruit and sweet apricot and peach. Georgia Pie gives users a full body high, beginning with a sense of elation and happiness and settling into a relaxing calm felt throughout the entire body. It is a perfect strain for the afternoon or evening to unwind by the pool or to enjoy the evening with friends and family. 

Apple Tartz 

Apple Tartz is a delicious hybrid from Clearwater Genetics that was created through a cross between Apple Fritter and Runtz. It is a potent summer strain with THC levels typically around 26%. Apple Tartz is perfect for summer because of its delicious flavor and balanced effects. Leafly readers voted it the Leafly Strain of Summer 2022. Just as the name implies, Apple Tartz smells like a crisp, sweet apple and tastes like a sour green apple with hints of creamy vanilla. Users say that it’s the perfect strain for any time of day, and it provides a balanced high that is a blend of an uplifting and cerebral high that spreads to the whole body leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed. 


Runtz, commonly known as “Runtz OG”, is a hybrid that was created by crossing Gelato and Zkittlez. It has seen an increase in popularity in the last few years and was named the Leafly Strain of the Year in 2020. The THC content in this strain is typically in the range of 21-24%, making it a good choice for new users and more experienced cannabis consumers alike. The taste is a mix of creamy berry and sweet tree fruit, and the smell is very similar to the beloved fruit-shaped candy of the same name (Runts). The effects are sedating and tend to make users feel calm and sleepy, as well as hungry and euphoric. Runtz is a great evening strain and is perfect for ending a busy day on vacation or unwinding on a summer camping trip.
