No one knows who invented National Lazy Day, but hey, who even has time to argue? To celebrate a day of straight chillin’, we’ve compiled a list of therapeutic strains based on terpene profiles that will keep you floating on Cloud 9 this National Lazy Day.
Before we jump straight into strains, let’s brush up on our terp knowledge and identify what terpenes are and how they play a role in relaxation. Terpenes are organic compounds that provide aroma and flavor. They interact with cannabinoids when cannabis is consumed and have an influence on the overall effects. In simpler terms, terpenes give marijuana flowers distinct flavors and odors.
On National Lazy Day, we’re focusing on the strains that contain the most therapeutic terps, including linalool, best known for its mood-boosting powers; and myrcene, a terpene that is known to have a peaceful, sedating effect. Also swimming in the pool of curative terpenes are limonene, terpinolene and caryophyllene, all known to relieve stress and elevate mood.
