Many of us will take advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts, but even the warmest summers will come with storms that are nearly impossible to venture out in. Unless you have somewhere indoors to head to or a vehicle to travel in, it may be best to take the day off and try to enjoy mother nature at work. Luckily, cannabis enthusiasts know exactly how to pass the time, but did you know that the strain you choose can heavily influence the sensation felt? A lot of people believe that all buds are equal, and some even believe the old myth of Indica being the powerhouse of marijuana strains. Therefore, it is a good idea to do your research to find out the strain that is perfect for relaxing during a day or night spent in. Here, you will find a list of ten excellent ways to pass the time.

1. Read a book

Even if the wind blows and the power goes out, a lovely candle, a comfortable sitting chair with your favorite book and a packed weed pipe might be all that you need to pass the time away.

Marijuana strains for reading: Green Crack, Sour Diesel, Blueberry Headband, Cinex, True OG, and Harlequin.

2. Online gaming and board games

Whether you enjoy battling your way through the ranks of the online world, quiet single player games or electronic free versions of playing cards, a few puffs of cannabis from the right strain can help to improve your focus.

Marijuana strains for gaming: Buddha Haze, AK-47, Bird’s Eye, White Widow, Blue Dream, Star Tonic, and Sweet Berry.

3. Watch a movie

Some movies will make you laugh, and others will make you cry. The occasional one will make you do both at the very same time, and this whole experience can be made a whole lot better with the addition of a giggly and sedating cannabis strain.


Marijuana strains for movie watching: Girl Scout Cookies, Chemdawg, Lamb’s Bread, Black Diamond, and Blue Diesel.

4. Watch and listen to the storm

For some people, storm watching can be an exhilarating experience, but others don’t really find much enjoyment from it. The big booms, flashing strikes of electricity and downpour water can be anxiety inducing, even for those of us who like it. Luckily, the right weed strains can help to relieve that anxiety and induce a sense of euphoria that can help you to feel better in the heart of the storm.

Marijuana strains to enhance storm watching: Belladonna, Zombie Haze, Church OG, and Platinum Grand Daddy Purple.

5. Build a bong

Every cannabis enthusiast should know how to build a bong from scratch. Test your skills using basic household essentials like bottles, fruit or even ice to design the most enjoyable bong. For this task, a burst of creativity is just what is needed to succeed.

Marijuana strains for bong building: All Star Cookies, Sativa Dream, Vortex, DaVinci OG, Tangieland, and Ghost Train Haze.
