Marie Veksler of Whaxy.com, the cannabis news and strain resource shared her top strain recommendations for a wedding canna-bar with Love and Marij.  All photos are from Whaxy.com.  Here are her top strains in no particular order.

Can’t make up your mind?  Jake Browne, cannabis connoisseur and pot critic for the Denver Post’s “The Cannabist” recommends a “three strain combination that is perfect for parties” for those who find it difficult to choose.

Jake’s magical combo?  BLUE DREAMGREEN CRACK and GRAPE APE.  His reasoning is in the descriptions below:

SATIVA STRAINS

Island Sweet Skunk

ISLAND SWEET SKUNK

Both experienced and novice cannabis consuming wedding guests will be enticed by the sweet, fruity and slightly skunky scent of Island Sweet Skunk. Often testing higher than most in Cannabidiol (CBD), ISS is the ideal pre-vows strain, leaving guests relaxed and loose without lessening the ability to focus or socialize.

Durban Poison

DURBAN POISON

Durban Poison is a pure sativa landrace strain that will leave guests or the bride and groom alert, energetic and ready to party.   Learn more about what to expect when consuming this popular sativa.

Harlequin

HARLEQUIN

Earning notoriety as a “high CBD” strain for having a 5:2 ratio of cannabidiol (CBD) to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive effects of Harlequin are mild compared to other strains because CBD buffers the potency of the THC. Like training wheels on a bicycle, Harlequin is perfect to have on hand for the novice and first time consumers at the wedding. The higher levels of CBD in this strain will eliminate the risk of developing paranoia or anxiety that some users face the first tim while also relieving the aches and pains of guests who have traveled a long distance or twerked too hard on the dance floor.

Kali Mist

KALI MIST

Often praised for helping to inspire creativity and a happy state of mind, fruity Kali Mist flowers may provide the perfect mix of relaxation and focus that the bride and groom need before they say “I do.” Guests will also be impressed with the beautiful pink and purple hues splashed between the bright green leaves and orange trichomes.

Strawberry Cough

STRAWBERRY COUGH

This fruity sativa, Strawberry Cough, would make a great addition to any cannabar because its the perfect combination of mental relaxation and energetic focus, helping guests feel good about dancing like no one is watching.

MAUI WAUI

MAUI WOWIE

Sweet, tropical fruit scented Maui Waui flowers are a great option for a wedding where smoking is favored because guests won’t have to fear coughing much when exhaling. The mood-boosting and energizing effects may also inspire friendship between guests who have just met.

HYBRID STRAINS

Green Crack

GREEN CRACK

According to Jake Browne, it’s “The ultimate conversation piece that truly does give a ton of energy to those who might be exhausted from travel or just being at a wedding. The fruity flavor is just a bonus.”

Blue Dream

BLUE DREAM

Jake suggests it’s “Ideal for guests who might need a little help getting on the dance floor, as its a body moving hybrid that is great for mood elevation!”

Cinderella 99

CINDERELLA 99

As an energizing, stress relieving, promoter of happiness, sweet and citrus scented Cinderella 99 (Cindy 99) is a strain that could be enjoyed before, during and/or after the wedding. Demonstrating mostly motivating and euphoric effects, Cinderella 99 may be able to rejuvenate sluggish guests near the end of the night.

Jilly Bean

JILLY BEAN

Suitable for novice users, its more than the sweet, citrus scent that of Jilly Bean that may increase the reach of your soul-shine rays. While Jilly Bean effects start with an immediate rush of cerebral euphoria and relaxation, while the body tingling sensations creep in over time.

NYC Diesel

NYC DIESEL (NYCD)

A Happy-go-lucky, ideal strain to offer at weddings because it is suitable for cannabis consumers of all levels of experience.  Promoting happiness and talkativeness in social settings, makes NYCD a great option for events, especially weddings because it may also enhance feelings of arousal.

XJ13

XJ 13

The almost mentholated, spiciness experienced in the back of the throat upon exhalation of XJ 13, alone, is noteworthy, but it’s ability to increase a person’s ability to spark conversations with strangers landed it a spot on the list for Best Strains to Offer at Weddings. Pair the clear-headed creativity with intense body relaxation and tingling sensations, and you get a strain that is suitable for novice and cannabis-experienced guests.

INDICA STRAINS

Bubba Kush

BUBBA KUSH

Likely to encourage a positive outlook and a case of the giggles, Bubba Kush and the slightly more difficult to find Pre ’98 Bubba Kush are great strains for clear-headed relaxation and intense body tingling sensations. The Bubbas may be best delivered in smaller quantities in order to avoid being too tired to get out of your chair when its time to teach ’em how to dougie.

Grand Daddy Purple

GRAND DADDY PURPLE (GDP)

One of the most recognized strains in the world for good reason. Guests can anticipate feeling happy, uplifted and relaxed almost instantly without being sedated. Plus, the resinous flowers spotted with dark purple leaves will pique the curiosity of guests, encouraging them to ask questions.

Blueberry

BLUEBERRY

In small doses, award-winningBlueberry can be energizing and encourage socializing, but it can also ease end of the night tension with waves of weightless relaxation throughout the body. Often reported to enhance feelings of arousal, these sweet scented flowers may be best reserved for the newlyweds’ nightcap.

Northern Lights

NORTHERN LIGHTS

Often recommended for the treatment of pain, insomniadepression and appetite loss, Northern Lights is the perfect compliment to the wind-down portion of the evening, allowing newlyweds and guests alike to drift attention away from sore muscles, aching feet, and dance floor fails.

Critical Mass

CRITICAL MASS

As a powerful indica strain, Critical Mass is great for the nervous bride and groom or an anxiety ridden guest. Often testing high in both THC and CBD, Critical Mass is best consumed in small quantities (one to two hits maximum) at social functions in order to avoid lethargy and drowsiness. In small quantities, Critical Mass can free the mind from overthinking by relaxing the body with tingling sensations through the arms and legs.

G13

G13

The ultimate strain for anyone who prefers a powerful body high with very little cerebral euphoria. While it may uplift your mood, G13 allows for intense relaxation and lightness of the limbs without clouding thoughts or making it difficult to focus. G13 is also ideal for pre-meal consumption, as it may increase the appetite and enhance the taste of food even more so than all other strains.

Grape Ape

GRAPE APE

According to Jake Browne, it’s “Perfect for the end of the night. The robust grape candy notes taste great and it provides a deep body stone without too much couchlock. Its also great for hangovers!”
