Around the world, many cultures are ready to ring in the new year, and NYE is always a time to celebrate. Here in North America, NYE is often synonymous with champagne, but if you’re one of an increasing number that would rather take it easy on the booze and celebrate the new year with cannabis, you’re in luck. For one thing, cannabis champagne exists. For everyone else, read on for our list of 5 beautiful buds to try in the new year.
Ring in 2021 with a brand new collection from 22Red. Known for their flavourful creativity and quality in all things canna, these strains are the perfect match for the end of the holiday season. The collection includes Angry Apple (full-bodied hybrid), Buttercrunch (Indica dominant), Primosa (hybrid), Strangelove (hybrid) and Zmintz (Indica hybrid). All five strains come in eighth jars, priced individually. For more information, click here.
Okay, so champagne is an NYE essential, but no one asked how. If you’re the type of person that’s got your resolutions done by 8:45 yet finds yourself falling asleep on the couch by 11:50 (who isn’t with the new Covid restrictions in place), this is the strain for you. Pink Champagne is all about optimism and relaxation. Really, what more could you ask for?
The end of a year is often a time for reflection, and this old classic is a strain for those who never stopped partying. There’s a good reason disco had a bit of a mini-revival in 2020 — where better to leave your problems than on the dance floor? Sour Diesel is not your daddy’s weed. This time-tested hybrid at an impressive 90 percent sativa-dominant earned the bronze medal on the High Times list of greatest strains of all time. Whether you’re in a funk or just looking to bust one, you certainly won’t forget how to party all night with a good hit of Sour Diesel.
If OG Kush had a motto, it’d probably be something like this: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The true OG (quite literally) is the backbone of many of the strains we know and love on the West Coast today. Something to take into 2022 is the importance of connection — this is what I love most about OG Kush.
Some say cannabis drinks are the new frontier. Watching the progressive trends, especially during the holiday season, I can’t help but agree. For the classic cocktail and cannabis lover, Purejuana is probably one of my favourite creations of the past year. The only downside is it’s currently only available in California. But for those stateside, forget oil extracts; Purejuana is a true-to-strain powder that dissolves in any cocktail of your choice at a 1 to 1 ratio. With six strains to choose from, Purejuana is an excellent addition to any 2022 NYE party.
