Here we list 4 uplifting strains that may give you an energetic boost and optimistic outlook for celebrating the holidays and ringing in the most-anticipated New Year of our lifetime.
We include THC-dominant strains that are highly euphoric, and inspiring. Look to the High-CBD strains or more balanced CBD/THC strains for a gentle high, as they contain far less THC.
