Best Strains for the Summertime

It’s summertime baby! After the past two years that we have had, hot vax summer is finally here.

In Ohio, we are all out and about, living our best lives with the sun on our skin and the breeze in our hair. But let’s be real. Using medical marijuana in summer is different than using it when the weather is cooler.

During the warmer months, more medical marijuana patients are looking for something cooler to add to their summertime collection of products and strains. Whether you are sunbathing beach side on Lake Erie or strolling through the MetroParks, you want your medical marijuana to work for you and the weather.

At Ohio Marijuana Card, we strive not only to be the best medical marijuana provider in the state but also to give you the information you need to have the best treatment plan you can. Here is a complete guide on some strains and products that you can look out for at your local dispensary in order to get the best medication for the summer heat!

Summertime Strains

There are a few strains that you can keep an eye out for during this summer. I chose three for this list because they are not always going to be available. Remember that dispensaries at the end of the day are businesses, one day they could have a product and the next day be out. In order to avoid these issues, you can first look at their website menu to see if they have any of these strains in stock or you simply give them a call and ask!

  • Chernobyl:

    • This strain is a hybrid that is sativa-dominant and super versatile. It is great for the summer because of the fresh scent of lemon, lime and orange that it gives off. It is like consuming a marijuana cocktail! The aroma of this strain wakes up the body and has upbeat, cheerful effects so you can walk into your summer with some pep in your step.

  • Super Lemon Haze:

    • We are all about lemon this summer! With the Super Lemon Haze strain, you will feel like you're floating away on a raft into paradise. This strain has an obvious lemony zest and is also a sativa-dominant hybrid. It gives off a dreamy effect that will have you relishing in all the summer beauty around you.

  • Chocolope:

    • Sativa is the way to go in the summertime! This strain will help you make the most of this social summer by helping you stay alert and active. With Chocolope you get all the earthy spice flavors with an undertone of fresh fruits. This one is perfect for doing everything on your summer bucket list!

Summertime Formats

Not everyone wants to inhale medical marijuana on a hot summer day. This is where formats come in!

One of the best ways to cool down with medical marijuana is by using tinctures. Tinctures are a marijuana infused liquid concentrate that is consumed orally for quick relief.

As if tinctures weren’t already great on their own, they also can be mixed in with your favorite summertime drinks. Tinctures come in a variety of flavors so they are easily concealable taste-wise when added to a drink. This is a great way to stay refreshed, hydrated and get your treatment on!
