Lemon Lime comes with moderate THC count and is one of the best weed strains for beginners and users with low tolerance. The strain is good for day and evening time, as well as for medicinal and recreational use.
Comatose works exactly what it sounds like. It’s an excellent nighttime strain with moderate THC content that is relaxing to both the body and mind, without a heavy, stoned feeling.

The buds are small and tight, releasing a strong citrusy aroma once you break them up. Comatose is recommended for people struggling with social anxiety, ADHD, and other conditions where a calming yet spacey buzz is desired.

This heavy-hitting indica provides full body relaxation and works exceptionally well as a painkiller. Perfect for treating insomnia, this flower may not knock you out right after you smoke it, but it will definitely soothe your mind and put all analytic-based tasks on hold.

Here’s something for all weed enthusiasts who’d like to be utterly dominated by the blissful high. El Jefe is an indica strain boasting impressive levels of THC between 22% and 25%. With such great strength, it’s no wonder this strain is called “the Boss”.

Primarily buzzy in the limbs, El Jefe comes with plenty of medicinal uses; it’s a decent choice for insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, muscle tension, inflammation, and loss of appetite.
Frostbite is a sativa-dominant hybrid that comes with a rich coating of frosty trichomes, hence the name. Contrary to its name, Frostbite won’t make you stone-cold (or cold-stoned). Rather, it will produce a warming cerebral buzz typical for sativa-dominant genetics. The high from Frostbite is mostly mind-centered, allowing users to put their thoughts together and keep all the stress and anxiety at bay.
