Strains of Weed That Won't Give You the Munchies

Everyone knows that weed is excellent at helping you build up an appetite. A lot of people even smoke weed because they want to get hungry. However, sometimes it’s easy to go a little overboard on the munchies, and some people have the opposite problem of eating too much when they’re stoned.

If you’re looking for a strain that will give you deep bodily effects without making you feel like there’s a pit in your stomach, look no further than these popular lineages. We've put together a list of CBD, THC, and THCV cannabis strains that you can turn to when you want to toke up without  getting the munchies.

Moby Dick

Moby Dick might have a fearsome name, but this bud is actually known to mellow you out and set you adrift on a wave of relaxation. This high is a little lighter than others. You will feel a pleasant buzzing sensation that arouses the mind and puts you in a positive mood. This is a great choice for new smokers and smokers who don’t want to overdo their snacking.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer is rich in a form of THC called THCV. Like some other THCV cannabis strains, Jack Herer is known to have less hunger-inducing effects than regular THC-- although it's no less potent. That makes this strain a must-explore for consumers looking to cut down on munchies. Even beyond its unique uses, this kush is an easy, smooth smoke that is perfect for cutting loose at the end of a long day. Jack Herer is named in honor of a legendary promoter of cannabis and hemp who spent his entire life fighting for legal access to medical marijuana.


Remedy, while not particularly THC intensive, is known for its healing, soothing effects that relieve a myriad of conditions, including chronic hunger. This strain is packed with CBD, which is the source of its medicinal qualities. If you’re suffering from a bad headache or pains in strange places, you’ll want to consider picking up a gram of this from any local dispensary that carries it. The downsides: Remedy is great for dealing with chronic pain and hunger, it won't be as potent as some THCV cannabis strains.

Red Congolese

Red Congolese is known to not cause the same kinds of hunger pangs as other strains. This deeply energetic strain from Africa is more likely to send you for a jog than to the fridge. You’ll notice the flower lives up to its name as thick, frosted, red hairs coat this plant from top to bottom and lend the smoke a natural, sweet flavor.


This relatively recent strain has found an audience fairly fast and can be found in many dispensaries located in different pot-approving states across the USA. Coming from the prestigious “Tsu” line, Canna-Tsu is a medically-oriented strain that sharpens the mind and clears away any negative energies. You’ll notice that your whole being is centered and settled in a restful vibe, without any urgent cravings or increased appetite.

Enjoying weed doesn’t have to mean you need to stock your snack pantry. If you want to cut back on those munchies, make sure you give these strains a try!

Top 4 Cannabis Strains for Enhancing Your Hiking Experience

There are few experiences in the world better than sitting on top of a large hill overlooking a vast expanse of nature while blazed on your favorite bud. For many people, marijuana is an essential component of any outdoor excursion, and choosing the right strain to bring along can be vital in maximizing the enjoyment of your hike.

In general, you want to stick with strains that give you a heady buzz but don’t put you out of commission. You want energy for the hike, but you also want to stay safe and in relative control of your faculties. Sativas are ideal for outdoor adventures, and it’s advisable to stay away from potent Indica-dominant strains that can be a real buzzkill for less experienced smokers.

The 4 Best Strains for Hiking

Blue Dream

You really can’t go wrong with Blue Dream. This sativa-dominant is known for its unique blueberry-ish flavor and smooth smoke, meaning it won’t be too harsh on your lungs when you’re already out of breath. Blue Dream is certainly potent, but not as much as some other strains, making it perfect for an active day in nature. The lightheaded, uplifting sensations you’ll feel soon after you inhale can create an atmosphere of fun and excitement that your friends will want to share, so try to bring enough for everyone if you hike with friends.

Fruit Spirit

Fruit Spirit is a deeply spiritual sativa-dominant hybrid that will help you connect with the world around you. There is a sizable indica component to this strain (up to 40%), but taking a small dose won’t be enough to knock you out. We recommend you enjoy the earthy, fruity flavor of this magical little kush right before taking a prolonged period of rest, perhaps at the destination of your hike, and then heading back after you come down. Not long after smoking, you will be transported into a mindset of deep contemplation and oneness with your surroundings, and this is an ideal strain for sharing intense moments in the beauty of nature with a significant other or another intimate companion.

Durban Poison

Hailing from South Africa, this is an ideal sativa for taking outdoors with you as it will give you just the imaginative buzz you need to light up your surroundings with excitement. Its mind-bending effects seem to seep into your head immediately, putting you in the proper headspace to connect with the world around you. Durban Poison is known to lift your mood substantially as well, but don’t smoke too much if you’re too far from home, as this bud is absolutely loaded with trichomes that lend it a potency you have to smoke to believe.

Alaskan Thunder Fuck

One of the more creatively named strains, this sativa-dominant lives up to its nomenclature, giving you a zap of energy that will have you running through nature without a care in the world. Its aroma is considered to be one of the stronger ones among sativas of this variety, and its pungent, piney scent will give you a hunger to be among the trees. Eventually, the extra energy settles into a pleasant euphoric glow that fills your entire body, leaving you time to relax at your destination in an easy haze where you can experience your surroundings in perfect harmony.

7 Cannabis Strains to Usher in Autumn

Autumn is upon us! Leaving behind the long summer days, the leaves are changing. Next month comes Halloween, and Thanksgiving not long after that. While strains are usually seasonally neutral, there’s a few that seem ideally suited to best appreciate Fall’s distinctive characteristics, and of course to curl up with a significant other, around the fire or watching a Netflix movie marathon.  Here’s a roundup of seven cannabis strains that will make this Fall one to remember:

Jack Herer

Who doesn’t know Jack — the strain or the activist? This strain bears the fiery punch of its namesake — Mr. Jack Herer — who was known as the “Emperor of Hemp.” Herer, who authored the seminal book, The Emperor Wears No Clothes, was a tireless cannabis advocate who fought not only to decriminalize and legalize cannabis, but to expand the use of hemp for industrial use.

A well-balanced hybrid that honors Jack's legacy, it has been characterized as producing a creative, energetic, euphoric high that will get your creative juices flowing. The high is distinctive, heady and cerebral. It’s great for Fall! Blaze before a trip to the pumpkin patch to get motivated and inspired enough to carve an mind-blowing pumpkin that will either dazzle or scare your trick-or-treaters.

While Jack Herer’s genetics are kept hush, most trace Jack Herer’s ancestry from crossing Northern Lights with the offspring of Shiva Skunk and Haze. Earthy, lemony, spicy and sweet — if it hasn’t already — this strain may quickly become one of your favorites.

Dutch Berry

Dutch Berry is one unique bud! A sativa dominant hybrid, it packs in some of the highest cannabinoid content you can find. Thankfully, Dutch Berry’s sky high THC (that can reach 27%) is tempered by an unusually high presence of CBD that clocks in at 8%. A sativa dominant hybrid that was bred by marrying DJ Short Blueberry and Dutch Treat in a tasty, frosty ceremony that results in one packed bud. Dutch Berry has developed an enthusiastic following, popular because it produces an epic “happy-happy” high. Our friends at Artizen describe Dutch Berry as “the happiest weed we’ve ever smoked.” Its rich cannabinoid content makes it a favorite for medicinal and lifestyle users alike.

Flavorful, and loaded with citrus and rich berry undertones to produce a giggly high — you just want to pair with a night in of pizza and a Seth Rogen movie marathon.


A high ratio of CBD to THC, Ozma turns the table upside down, and is loved by “cannasseurs” looking for a CBD-rich strain that can alleviate stress and anxiety, without overly powerful psychotropic effects. An enigmatic sativa-dominant hybrid, it’s a blend of several popular strains, including Sour Tsunami and Cannatonic. While Ozma hovers at a modest 3-5% THC, it is a strain rich in CBD, providing an intensely relaxing high that will put you in a restful mood and leave you feeling refreshed. It’s the perfect strain for lounging around the fire with some warm hot chocolate and a tasty brownie.

Alpha Dawg

Woof, woof! Alpha Dawg is in the hizzo! Earthy, pungent and spicy sweet, A-Dawg is a well-balanced slightly sativa dominant hybrid bred by crossing the epically potent Chemdawg D and Snowdawg BX strains. Given parents like that, you won’t be surprised by if you’ll get up to some mischievous this Fall. Alpha Dawg produces a high described as heady and cerebral with a mood boost, while stimulating creativity.


What’s not to love about this sativa dominant hybrid (90% sativa to 10% indica) from Blue Roots, a cross between Oasis, Skunk and Haze.? With its exceptionally high concentration of THC, novice users should use judiciously. This strain yields dense nugs with hints of purple hues and red hairs. Uniquely fruit forward and earthy with hints of berries which considering its ancestry, makes Hempstar a bit of an outlier. Prepare for a high that lasts several hours. Prepare to feel giggly euphoric, happy and relaxed.

Durban Poison

Durban Poison is a favorite among growers and concentrate aficionados (the large resin glands make this a great strain to extract for concentrates). An ultra-potent pure sativa hailing from the port city, Durban, in South Africa, Durban Poison packs a punch. No wonder it has built a loyal following among those who like a powerful high, but want to stay productive, or enjoy outdoor adventures. This strain is also known for promoting creativity, making it a winning strain to usher in the months of Autumn.


With a name like Cheese, you know it’s gotta be great for Fall! A hybrid from the U.K. Cheese is thought to hail from a Skunk #1 phenotype, with an Afghani landrace later introduced into the mix. Many tokers describe Cheese as one of the tastiest smokes they’ve ever experienced. Sounds strange (given its distinctive bouquet that may remind you of cheddar cheese). How very English? But, it’s actually quite delicious!

Cheese’s wily euphoria will work its way around your body and create a mental atmosphere of fun and relaxation. Be prepared for your appetite to be stimulated — perfect for all the Fall festivals!
