About Long Weekend
Long Weekend is a strain that starts as soon as you let go, with every exhale sending you deeper and deeper into a state of unfocused bliss. This strain is adept at provoking you to laugh and talk with anyone who will listen, as it forces a state of easy relaxation on your stressed-out brain. We don’t recommend this strain for any day you need to get work done, as this super relaxing combo of Super Silver Haze and Wappa will leave you mentally stranded if you try to focus. But for a literal long weekend (or just a regular weekend), the strain with the same name is the top choice.
This sativa-dominant hybrid (70/30) was bred by Redecan, a Canadian cannabis breeder that is now part of HEXO Corp. They’re at the frontline of the Canadian recreational market and include an umbrella of brands that they’ve been incorporating since 2013, including Redecan, Original Stash, Trail Mix, Namaste, UP Cannabis, and more. The Long Weekend strain is one of their most popular creations, bred from award-winning heritage by including the multiple Highlife Cup-winner, Super Silver Haze.
Long Weekend contains around 14% THC and up to 1% CBD, providing a mind-moderating range of effects that can leave even the most rigidly focused workers laid up in a blob of couch-locked relaxation in no time. The strain not only relaxes you, however, but provides stimulation too. This stimulating effect will not motivate you to work but to talk and be creative, sociable, and uplifted. This is why we recommend Long Weekend for an afternoon full of food and friends, hanging out somewhere low-key so you can laugh all day and crash later.
The flavor of the strain favors notes of spicy, sour, and earthy. The strain starts out tasting like wood and citrus, progressing to a fresh earthy exhale that transforms the room with an aroma of pine, cedar, earth, herbs, and a hint of sour lemon. The strain grows in long nugs shaped like elongated peppers rounded off like grapes. They’re a grayish green color with thin yellow pistils and a light coat of small white crystals.
Since the strain leaves you happy, unfocused, and giggly, consumers enjoy its effects to relieve the weight of their long weeks and the mental/physical burden they can cause. The strain is especially popular with people who are physically active during the week and need to be mentally tackled by relaxation at the start of their well-earned long weekend.
