Spring cleaning is an annual tradition for so many of us for a good reason: After a long, gruelling winter, clearing out the old feels invigorating. Whether that looks like purging old clothes or just deep cleaning each room from top to bottom, refreshing your space marks a welcome rite of passage into the warm half of the year.
Of course, spring cleaning demands a bit of time, focus, and elbow grease—so, it’s a task you’ll definitely want to get in the zone for. To supplement your pump-up playlist and coffee, grab a motivating cannabis strain to help you make short work of the job.
Here are five marijuana strains we recommend to help get you through your post-winter cleaning ritual.
1. Jack Herer Is a Marijuana Stain That Can Help Relax Your Muscles While You Clean
Jack Herer is a popular blend of the cannabis strains:
- Shiva Skunk
- Northern Lights #5
This marijuana strain will get you mentally and physically stimulated enough to start your cleaning mission. It imparts a balanced, invigorating high with pleasant physical effects and can even help combat the mild pain you may feel from moving things around and bending down to clean while you’re organizing.
This is a favourite all-purpose daytime strain for any fairly active or social day. Jack Herer’s effects are never too intense and there’s very little risk of paranoia with this strain.
2. Green Crack May Be Just What You Need to Tackle That Big Spring Cleaning Project
Ready your most ambitious cleaning to-do list, because you’ll have the will to get it done with Green Crack on hand.
This sativa-dominant marijuana hybrid will up your focus, optimism and overall drive to tackle cleaning, rearranging furniture, doing laundry and whatever else you need to do get your place in tip-top shape.
Just don’t overdo it—Green Crack is known to be pretty intense. It’s always a good idea to have some cannabis products that are rich in cannabidiol (CBD) on hand, as CBD can reduce the anxiety and paranoia some feel after consuming high-THC marijuana. Good options are a cannabis oil high in CBD or the CBD-rich cannabis strain ACDC.
