These 12 marijuana strains can help get you through Thanksgiving with the family

Thanksgiving, like many holidays, is a time of stress and angst, but it can be a little less stressful if you’re high.

While marijuana sales aren’t legal in Indiana, states such as Illinois have legalized the sale of medical and recreational marijuana. In 38 states and Washington D.C., marijuana is legal for medical use while 24 states have legalized it for recreational use, with Ohio being the most recent on Nov. 7.

However, Indiana residents are able to purchase items at these out-of-state dispensaries, even though they are still illegal within state lines. For residents in Evansville and surrounding areas, a dispensary is less than an hour away, just over the state line into Illinois. Terrabis, located in Grayville, is open for anyone 21 or older looking to shop in person.

Non-residents of Illinois who are over age 21 can legally purchase15 grams of cannabis flower, 250mg of THC in a cannabis-infused product, and 2.5 grams of cannabis concentrate.

From eating the big meal to Black Friday shopping to general anxiety, here’s a list of different marijuana strains, according to Terrabis, that can make the big day a little easier.

OG Chem, also known as Chemdawg OG or Chem OG

A Sativa-dominant strain that has uplifting and energetic effects. Known for giving people the munchies, it’s a top choice for consuming before dinner. You might end up eating more than you expect.


If you want a less-energetic strain that will still give you the munchies before your meal, this stain is an Indica-dominant cross between Chemdawg and Norther Lights Haze. The indica dominance makes it more relaxing than the OG Chem, but you’ll still have plenty of energy and appetite for all of your favorite dishes.

Georgia Pie

An excellent and powerful strain for watching football. It gives most people a powerful body sensation and heady euphoria. Because of its high potency, Georgia Pie may lock you into the couch for a while, which is exactly where you want to be when the game is on.


If you’re looking to be put on the couch, this strain is perfect. This Indica strain is a combination of Do-si-Dos and Purple Punch, two strains that are famous for their relaxing and mellow effects. Be careful though, too much Slurricane may put you to sleep, so there’s a balance between consuming enough to be locked in the couch watching the game, and sleeping through the next touchdown.

Apple Fritter

This strain is great for dealing with family during the holidays if you’re craving a chill vibe. Apple Fritter is a hybrid strain that is best known for giving a powerful relaxation that’s not too overpowering. This makes it great for keeping you calm and relaxed while making it easy to enjoy all the family’s festivities.

Pineapple Express

A classic sativa-dominant hybrid strain that is a nice pick-me-up during any social gathering. The effects of Pineapple Express are more energetic, providing a happy buzz that can make you more talkative and perk up to be more social with family.

GMO Cookies

A perfect strain to pair with rest and recovery. This potent strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid that’s crossed with Girl Scout Cookies and Chemdawg, two highly potent strains. GMO Cookies can be euphoric and sedating, which may be helpful with any pain or soreness, and it may also help you go to sleep.

Purple Punch

The Purple Punch strain is another cross of two super potent strains, Larry OG and Grandaddy Purple. By combining these two high-THC strains, Purple Punch packs a powerful high that is well-known for its sedating and relaxing effects, which may help relieve any pain and soreness and may cause couch lockedness or a nap.

Jack Herer

This sativa-dominant hybrid is famous for being named after cannabis activist Jack Herer, as well as giving consumers an energetic and uplifting high. Some people say it can help with creativity too, which can make it easier to come up with gift ideas for your friends and family while shopping.

OG Kush

Classic Cannabis Strain OG Kush is one of the most popular strains on the market. The effects of OG Kush are relaxing and euphoric while still being energetic and uplifting, providing a nice balanced high. This can make it great for staying calm under the pressure of Black Friday shopping, while still having plenty of energy to shop.


The Skywalker strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid that is often recommended for stress relief. The effects of Skywalker are said to be relaxing without causing much sleepiness which can make it great for dealing with anxiety during the holidays with a relaxing and not overwhelming high.


Want to sleep through the holiday? This indica-dormant hybrid has the powerful sleepy effects of a classic indica, which may help some people feel more relaxed but also relaxed enough to fall asleep. A great stress reliever, it’s great for reducing anxiety at the end of your day.
