Now that the average cannabis enthusiast is becoming more knowledgeable about the powerful range of effects that can come from swapping weed strains, it’s having an impact on how they use it, and one of the least talked about factors are some that you might least expect to be a result of ingesting pot. If that all sounds a tad confusing, then you haven’t quite caught up with the latest trends, but that’s ok because we’re here to explain how and why it’s done.

As each weekday passes by, you will experience a range of feelings and emotions from happy and motivated, too drained, stress and sore. Now, for the longest time, most cannabis consumers would hit up their closest supplier and smoke whatever they had on hand to treat the problem, but that’s not a very effective solution without some serious research and more than one strain.

Indica or Sativa

One of the first places that most customers start in making a decision on a strain is its origin and choosing between Indica or Sativa for either energizing or sedating effects is a baseline for many. Unfortunately, it’s not a very good way to choose the very best weed strains, and instead, the focus should be on the range of sensations that each type of weed is most known for producing.

Day by day suggestions

Now that you see how complicated this can all be, we want to delve into how most people who are following this trend are doing it, including which characteristics to look for, and the weed strains that are best for every day of the week.


The very first weekday is the one that the majority of us dread most because it’s hard to get back into the swing of things after what felt like a really short weekend. Luckily, there are a couple of weed strains that can help you with that by lifting up your mood, increasing focus, and melting away the aches and pains that are slowing you down, and one of the best and most popular is the Blue Dream strain.


The second day often blurs into the first, but on a good week, it makes us see just how close Wednesday is, which is something to celebrate. If you find yourself feeling down on a Tuesday, then you might want to keep working with Monday’s suggested strain, but if you’re feeling good about the week, then it may be time to move onto the “humpday” strain that helps us to get through it all.



By Wednesday the stresses of work are setting in, but we still usually feel good because we’re halfway there, and not too far from Saturday, which is why we highly recommend utilizing weed strains that are good for reducing swelling and stress, while keeping you centered and clear-headed enough to stay 100% in the game. Our recommended strain for this day is a nice light Orange Cookies.


Once this day hits, we know that it’s only two days left until the weekend, but our patience and energy levels are running low. We’ve given our best hours of productivity and for the most part, it’s all downhill from here. Luckily, we’ve got weed strains for that, and the best ones will contain invigorating terpenes that will wake you up, with moderate doses of THC, to help to soothe and relax. One of the best weed strains for this awkward day is Bruce Banner.


Most of us end up watching the clock on Friday, as the minutes tick away and our time to do what we want approaches, but that often makes it feel like the longest day of the week. That is why we highly recommend weed strains that can make you feel happy, and even excited, while helping to pass the time as quickly as possible, and one of the best ones for the job is Strawberry Romulan.


The first day of the weekend is viewed as a time of leisure, but most folks head out to run errands, watch a movie, or take in other sights and activities to burn off some steam, and for that, you are going to need energy. The problem is that you are also probably sore from a whole week at work, so a bit of pain relief can also go a long way in helping, which is why we highly recommend a strain like Harlequin, that has a nice even balance of effects that are perfect for a night on the town.


For some, this is a religious day filled with church sermons and many thanks, but one thing that is pretty much universal is that it’s the day most of us get to sit back, relax, and recuperate before heading back to work on Monday. It’s pretty common to want to slow down this time so that you can enjoy it, and as you probably guessed, there are weed strains that can do all of that. If you want a nice relaxing and therapeutic Sunday that just sort of slowly drifts by, then you might want to check out weed strains with couch locking effects like Ghost Train Haze or Berry White.
