Weed for Winter: Five Vermont-Grown Strains To Warm You Up and Chill You Out
When the cold weather rolls around, nothing hits the spot quite like a rip off a dank, full-bodied bowl of flower. Whether you’re hitting the slopes or hibernating until Spring, here are five Vermont-grown cultivars to help you relax and rejuvenate- and where you can find them in the Green Mountain State.
MAC1 by Central Vermont Cannabis
Mac 1, also known as “The MAC,” is a hybrid strain that consumers turn to for upbeat and balancing effects. A cross of Alien Cookies F2 and Miracle 15, Mac 1 is special because not just anyone can grow it.
Growers of Mac 1, also known as “The MAC” or Capulator’s Cut, have been carefully selected by the breeder in order to protect the quality of this flower.
Cultivator and founder Eric Gross of Central Vermont Cannabis has clearly taken this responsibility to heart, submitting the Mac 1 to the Headies Cup in 2022 and crushing with some of the frostiest nugs we’ve ever seen.
Wintry in appearance with beautiful frosted buds drenched in milky trichomes, Mac 1 is a truly photo-worthy strain. Highest in limonene, this strain presents a smooth, creamy, and funky terpene profile you can enjoy day and night.
Find it at Capital Cannabis Company, Montpelier
9# Hammer by LB Farm LLC
A creation from Jinxproof, 9lb Hammer is a cross of the breeder’s fave strain Gooberry with TGA Genetics’ Jesus OG Kush. These strains combine to form 9lb Hammer’s intoxicating, fruity grape blend with a touch of earthiness.
9lb Hammer gets its name from its alleged reputation for feeling like a heavy hammer knocking users out cold. Packing a heavy sedative punch, it’s a fabulous strain for tackling pain, relaxing and unwinding after a long day outdoors in the cold. 9lb packs a hefty THC content and is not for the novice!
Cultivated by our awesome partners and micro-cultivators at LB Farm LLC, this limited-run strain is sure to fly off the shelves – get it before it’s gone! Be sure to keep an eye on Insta for upcoming LB Farm drops.
Grease Monkey by Dough Boi Farms
Grease Monkey, a cross of GG4 and Cookies and Cream, is a sweet indica-leaning hybrid with earthy, skunky overtones.
This strain brings on a lazy, munchie-fueled body buzz that tackles chronic pain, nausea and stress. While defined as a hybrid, Grease Monkey induces a deep relaxation will naturally lead some users toward sleep – so mind your dosage!
You can check out more cultivars from Dough Boi on the shelves at Higher Elevation, and at a few other retailers around the state.
Find it at Higher Elevation, Morrisville and more!
White Walker by Green State of Mind
Blanketed in a snowy layer of trichomes, this White Walker from Green State of Mind, presented by Northern Craft Cannabis, is a hybrid cross of White Widow and OG, noted for its fast mood-lifting and appetite-boosting abilities.
Highest in myrcene, this balanced hybrid kicks off with an energetic, cerebral rush of euphoria that gives way to a calmer high later on. Northern Craft is clearly on top of their distribution game, because you can find White Walker at a number of retailers across the state!
Sunday Brunch by Old Growth Vermont
Sunday Brunch is a balanced hybrid made by crossing the tasty Clementine and Purple Punch strains. Mouth-watering aromas of tropical fruit and citrus erupt from the buds, with similar flavors balanced with notes of earth, herbs, and pine.
This strain delivers a balanced high that begins with feelings of euphoria and focus, followed by a long-lasting relaxed and calm sensation. Sunday Brunch is a reasonably potent bud great for depression, nausea, and chronic stress.
