With Thanksgiving upon us, we thought that it was the perfect time that we offered a list of the best cannabis strains to pair with tomorrow’s feast. In this post, we’re going to investigate the luxury cannabis strains that you can pair with your roasted turkey and trimmings over the holidays. You might be surprised to learn that different strains pair with varying types of seasonal delicacies.
Just remember, you must be over 21 to use cannabis in Nevada, and you can only consume it on a private residence: that means your home!
Here’s are the five luxe cannabis strains you’ll want to pair with your food.
Church OG with Hors d’oeuvres
Thanksgiving is a time of the year when people eat more veggies than at practically any other. But it’s not just the volume of vegetables consumed that sets the holiday season apart: it’s the type too. Brussel sprouts, for instance, rarely make an appearance at any other time of year, with the possible exception of Christmas.
Church OG, like the vegetables in your hors d’oeuvres and veggie side dishes, is famous for its dark green leaves. But unlike your regular fare, it’s able to elevate the holiday meal to an entirely different level.
Church OG is an indica marijuana strain that has a lasting cerebral effect. It’s bold, earthy flavors pair exceptionally well with traditional vegetables. The company’s OG strain tastes remarkably similar to pine nuts, making it an ideal accompaniment for use alongside green beans, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, and even sweet potato mash.
What’s more, Church OG has a unique, uplifting effect on the body, making it one of the best strains to include with dinner to generate a bit of holiday cheer. It’s easy-going while still providing you with a buzz, containing CBD of up to 0.23 percent and THC of up to 19 percent.
The Main Course: Medizin Hawaiian Butterscotch
Hawaiian Butterscotch is a great name for this flower from Medizin, which has both tropical, mint, and citrus overtones. While it tastes good by itself, it also pairs well when smoked alongside some of the more savory items on the Thanksgiving menu. Its citrusy and herbal flavor helps balance the smokey, robust flavors of the main course.
You could, for instance, try having Medizin Hawaiian Butterscotch alongside seasoned mashed potatoes, your brined turkey, and of course, stuffing.
Whatever you choose, be sure you find some to include Hawaiian Butterscotch in your menu to elevate your Thanksgiving experience and help you feel mellow.
MPX Lime Marshmallow As Palate Cleanser
We’ve come to the point in your Thanksgiving meal that it’s time for a palate cleanser. Didn’t think cannabis could be a palate cleanser? Think again!
MPX’s Lime Marshmallow strain contains many of the same phytonutrients as lime itself, meaning that it leaves a fresh taste in your mouth. Often a palate-cleansing dish is somewhat citrusy and lightly acidic to neutralize previous flavors left on the tongue so you can accurately access a new flavor. Making Lime Marshmallow the perfect companion after your main course and before dessert!
If you want to go straight to dessert MPX’s Lime Marshmallow also goes well alongside fruit sorbets. The natural citrus flavors chime well with the fruity notes of the flower. Again, the decadent infusion of citrusy flavors can be the perfect complement to the main Thanksgiving meal.
Medizin Panama Red for Dessert
Medizin Panama Red was one of the first and most luxurious strains of cannabis to emerge in the 1960s. It’s famous for its energy and creativity-inducing effects and is a leading daytime cannabis product on the market today.
Like Blueberry Syrup, Panama Red has a delicate, sweet, fruity, earthy flavor, making it ideal for smoking alongside desserts and puddings.
Here’s an idea: if you’re planning on making a pumpkin roll filled with cream cheese frosting this holiday season, try pairing it with Panama Red. The subtle, fruity taste of the herb complements pumpkin well, helping to bring out the flavors of this traditional item on the Thanksgiving menu, like a fine wine.
Medizin’s Panama Red typically contains 15.7 percent THC.
Medizin Blueberry Syrup With Pie
Are you planning on making a berry pie this Thanksgiving? Or how about pecan? Apple? If you are, then Medizin is the perfect accompaniment. Their Blueberry Syrup is an indica dominant hybrid, offering berry-like flavors, making it the perfect complement to practically any pie at your dining room table.
Medizin grows Blueberry Syrup exclusively for Planet 13 dispensary in Las Vegas. The strain has a unique, earthy sweetness that makes it a favorite among both veteran cannabis users, and new users.
A small amount this decadent herb consumed alongside your favorite slice of pie could help fight that sugar-low and leave you feeling ready for more.
Is it time you started pairing luxurious cannabis strains with your Thanksgiving dinner? We certainly think so! Take your dinner to the next level by stopping in or ordering luxurious cannabis right to your door.
