Although zodiac certainly might not be the answer to all of life’s many questions, it is a fun and sometimes insightful look into personality types, based off birth date. Whether or not you believe in star signs, these cannabis strains are all worth trying, and it does not hurt to give your paired up weed type a taste; it is likely delicious and pleasant, and hey, it’s herb! If you are deeply involved with zodiac and the alignment of the planets in relation to one another in general, then this article is definitely for you.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th) – Northern Lights (Indica):
Defining Traits: Known as the persistent goal-getter that will stop at nothing to accomplish what they desire, the Capricorn is an earth sign skilled at maneuvering its way through not only the material world, but also the emotional realm. This sea goat sets insane expectations for itself, and is very equipped to accomplish even the most challenging tasks. Capable of almost hyperfocusing when they are working their way up the goal getting ladder, nothing can distract this determined goat. Often involved with career climbing and making a name for themselves, Capricorns can easily get consumed by what their resume looks like, and what their status is in society.
Challenges: Because of the almost obsessive fixation on career building and resumes, it is easy for some of those around the Capricorn to view them as lacking compassion or being under emotional, sometimes not receiving the type of support they need from this earth sign. It is important for the goat to not take itself too seriously and apply a bit more compassion in life towards others, because at the end of the day a successful career should not be the only priority and focus in life, the people around you are important too.
Capricorn combined with Northern Lights: The indica strain Northern Lights is actually really suited for Capricorns, because it practically forces its consumer to relax and unwind, which can be a much needed effect for the workaholic goat that will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. The key to living a good life is finding balance, which includes the line between work and relaxation. Northern Lights also acts as a brilliant sedative, which could be ideal for a Capricorn that is trying to let loose after a long day of working. Getting enough rest will help the Capricorn to feel more stable mentally and also kinder to those around them, which just might increase compassion.
Aquarius (January 2oth-February 18th) – Lamb’s Bread (Sativa):
Defining Traits: An advocate for radical change and empowering people in life, the Aquarius is a freedom seeker, often extremely adventurous and turned off by control or monotonous tasks. This air sign is a real rebel, marching to the beat of its own drummer, often feeling most fulfilled living a life that is in agreement with this quality. Known for being a free spirit, often eccentric and untraditional, the Aquarius is a big dreamer, thinking way outside the box. With this, they are brilliant artists and creatives, developing many cutting edge projects.
Challenges: Because the Aquarius is often airy and can be high in the clouds, it is easy for them to neglect their present surroundings, and sometimes this sign needs a reminder that can ground them once again. For this reason, it can sometimes be challenging for the Aquarius to remain present in their relationships. They can come across as aloof or even emotionally distant to those that are close to them, so maintaining a sense of presence, as well as retaining empathy and compassion for those around them, can go a very long way.
Aquarius combined with Lamb’s Bread: A landrace strain originating from Jamaican sativa, this almost pure sativa is quite effective at keeping its consumer happy, grounded and present, as well as deeply in touch with emotions, especially the most elated ones. For these reasons, it seems to connect well with the characteristics of a classic Aquarius, for it brings this airy sign back down to earth so that they don’t drift too high away in the clouds. Additionally, it helps them to keep them present, especially amongst social company, so that they do not fall too far into their own thoughts or actions, keeping them connected and empathetic to those around them.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th) – Green Crack (Sativa):
Defining Traits: Pisces, the dreamy fish, is constantly swimming between reality and imagination, known for being extremely imaginative and creative. They are often kind and gentle souls, appearing calm and even keeled most of the time, possessing a sensual and caring femininity about them at times. The fish is immensely intuitive, often carrying psychic abilities, paired up with tons of empathy and compassion for other humans, by far more than any other sign in the zodiac. They are ultra sensitive, and can sometimes feel hurt or overwhelmed by emotions that are not even theirs. They are capable of easily escaping reality and falling into a world of their own, which can produce some intriguing and artistically innovative results.
Challenges: Because of their intense ability to escape and fall into their imagination, it is easy for Pisces to use this tactic as a way of avoiding confrontation, challenging situations and communication. They sometimes see the world through perfect, rose colored glasses, which is not always the reality of what is actually present. This can present difficulties, because Pisces have to monitor their level of denial and make sure that they are dealing with the situations arising.
Pisces combined with Green Crack: The Green Crack sativa strain is has been widely utilized for increased ease in communication and confrontation when problems come up. This cannabis type makes it simple for those who may have difficulties bringing up challenging conversations to speak their mind open and honestly. This is part of why it is so suited to assist a Pisces that maybe have an overly idealistic perspective of the world, or who may be avoiding some type of confrontation.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th) – Jack Herer (Sativa):
Defining Traits: Aries is known for being fiery, bold, and ambitious, ready and actually quite excited to tackle new challenges, often pushing themselves to new limits and testing their abilities. Like many fire signs, Aries is a natural born leader; passionate, motivated and confident throughout life.
Challenges: Aries can be impatient, especially regarding small details or tasks that are taking too long because they are not being completed as efficiently as possible.
Aries combined with Jack Herer: One thing is for sure: Many Aries have a tendency to lack patience, especially because they are very high functioning and feel like the rest of the world just might not be at their pace. The Jack Herer cannabis strain is, therefore, a complementary marijuana strain for this fire sign, bringing greater patience and an overall sense of calm and tranquility, while still being an energetic sativa that won’t slow down the confident and motivated Aries that loves to get things done.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th) – Cannatonic (Hybrid):
Defining Traits: Known for being loyal and practical, Taurus needs a sense of stability in life to feel secure, which fits in well with the fact that they are a grounded earth sign. They seem to truly thrive in their careers and relationships, capable and ready to commit to what they want in life. Dependable, reliable, consistent and devoted are all words that can be used to describe this bull’s character. All these qualities are what not only make the Taurus a good friend, but a passionate lover as well.
Challenges: The Taurus can be quite stubborn, and sometimes this can cause the bull to end up in unhealthy situations that they maybe should have exited long before. They do not like to give up until its completely obvious that there is no more use in trying, and they like to prove their loyalty. For this reason, it is valuable for the bull to watch their habits closely and regularly assess if it they are beneficial or toxic for them.
Taurus combined with Cannatonic: Cannatonic is a hybrid cannabis type with 1:1 THC and CBD ratio, making it one of the more wide-spectrum medicinal cannabis strains that is available on the market. Its balance of cannabinoids fits well with the personality of a Taurus, because it does not damper or lessen the bull’s innate ability to express their genuine emotions, unaffected by any of the psychoactive qualities of THC. At the same time, it takes the edge off of some challenges that this earth sign can face, including lessening any possible stubbornness, allowing the bull to compromise more without feeling compromising of themselves.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th) – Girl Scout Cookies (Hybrid):
Defining Traits: Capable of withstanding the careful act of balancing a million things at once, the Gemini is a master of multi-tasking and often possesses many hobbies, life activities, friends and careers to go along with their playful and curious personalities. They are socially very capable, holding conversations with just about any social circle they are placed into. For them, communicating is simple, and they are often extroverts. It is likely you would find a Gemini out most days of the week, enjoying their time at clubs, dances, dinners, bars, parties and other events. The twin is emotional, but will be expressive externally of its emotions.
Challenges: Thoughtful communication can sometimes be challenging for this zodiac sign, for they are very capable at talking to all types of people, but not always on a intensely deep level. Additionally, Gemini can become stressed out and overwhelmed if they reach their upwards breaking point, so it is important for this sign to step back sometimes, even if they think they maybe actually could handle a bunch of difficult commitments at once.
Gemini combined with Girl Scout Cookies: GSC works incredibly and quickly to combat stress and anxiety, which could be a massive help to the always active and busy Gemini. Girl Scout Cookies is a hybrid, so it will not give the Gemini any more energy (which probably is not needed), but it also won’t tire the Gemini out.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd) – White Widow (Hybrid):
Defining Traits: Highly intuitive and psychically aware, the crab is very sensitive and conscious of its own emotions, but at the same time it is self-protective. It takes a little while to get to know a Cancer, for they tend to be rather introverted and prefer a cozy night at home over a big party.
Challenges: Cancers can sometimes become controlling or overbearing in relationships, possibly because they invest so much time and energy into their partner. It is important for the crab to remain conscious of the dynamics in their relationships.
Cancer combined with White Widow: White Widow is a superb strain for relaxing and enjoying a cozy night in, and since the Cancer tends to be more introverted, they prefer to stay at home in the evenings. White Widow helps to make that experience for them a bit more pleasant and calming.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd) – Strawberry Cough (Sativa):
Defining Traits: Known for being fearless and brave, this lion is one of the most powerful signs of the zodiac. The Leo possesses an almost overwhelming determination, suited perfectly to be a leader or boss. They hold high self-esteem and tend to be extremely confident.
Challenges: Because of the aspect of high self-esteem and in general extreme confidence, the Leo has to be careful not to let their ego get in the way. It can be easy for the lion to feel threatened by the success of others, but rather they should try to embrace their light and also the light of those close to them.
Leo combined with Strawberry Cough: Strawberry Cough works well to chill you out, even though it is technically a sativa. The chill is a sort of internal calmness that does not lower your energy levels, which can be helpful for the Leo that never stops pushing forward and reaching for their goals.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd) – Blueberry (Hybrid):
Defining Traits: Logical and practical, the Virgo tends to be an overthinker as well as a deep-thinking intellectual, which can sometimes be a double edged sword. A natural born perfectionist, the Virgo seeks out tiny details and works to solidify them. Virgos are helpful and kind to those around them.
Challenges: It is important for the Virgo not to beat themselves up too much when things don’t go perfectly in life. The Virgo can benefit greatly from positive self-talk and remembering to communicate their feelings outwardly.
Virgo combined with Blueberry: The Virgo can sometimes take itself too seriously, and for this reason it can benefit most from a cannabis strain like Blueberry, which is known for its extreme laugh-inducing effects.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd) – Laughing Buddha (Sativa):
Defining Traits: Libras tend to be highly intellectual and creative, constantly seeking out ways to bring balance to their lives. This sign is represented by the scales, which means the Libra is constantly trying to bring balance to the lives of those around them as well.
Challenges: Sometimes the Libra can care so much about those around them that they lose focus on their own needs. This can create an underlying imbalance, which is ironic because this sign was trying to produce balance the whole time. It is important for the Libra to take time for themselves.
Libra combined with Laughing Buddha: Aside from making you laugh a lot, Laughing Buddha also works well for self-reflection and meditation, two activities that could be very useful for the Libra when it comes to helping keep balance and remembering to care for the self.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st) – Cinex (Sativa):
Defining Traits: The Scorpio is often very emotional, sensitive and not afraid to express how it feels in a direct, unfiltered way. The Scorpio craves closeness and connection with other human beings, and can often seem enticing and exciting to others around them.
Challenges: The Scorpio sometimes needs to monitor its emotions, because this sign is capable of hurting or offending those around them if they are not cautious. This is not usually intentional, but it is still something that should be considered.
Scorpio combined with Cinex: Cinex works as a massive emotion balancer, still keeping its consumer emotionally aware and expressive, but simply taking an edge off the most negative and dark of feelings. This is an ideal cannabis strain for a Scorpio that is feeling emotionally unstable or overly emotional.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st) – Alice in Wonderland (Sativa):
Defining Traits: The Sagittarius is immensely adventurous and creative, loving to take on new projects and produce fresh ideas. They love change and are very blunt with those around them, honest in their intentions.
Challenges: The Sagittarius can sometimes be stubborn and come across as pretentious, because they are very smart and sometimes overly chatty.
Sagittarius combined with Alice in Wonderland: Alice in Wonderland is a creativity inducing strain that supports the Sagittarians need for change and fresh innovations. It is euphoric and helps to relax this fire sign’s stubbornness.
