We’re your friendly South Seattle legal weed shop, and today we’re giving you tips on how to make the best seasonal produce taste even better by enhancing their flavors with weed.

It’s true, cooking with weed can make your favorite delicacies taste that much better. But, we also know that getting the weed butter or oil right can be a painstaking process in itself. Here’s a quick and easy workaround!

As a summer special, we have put together this guide to help you pair your favorite seasonal fruits with the right strain of cannabis. You don’t have to be a savant in the kitchen to enjoy your food with weed!

Cherries with Lemon Pie:
Nothing says temptation like a bowl of bright red cherries. Pair it with lemon pie cannabis to add a nice citrusy edge to the cherry’s juicy sweetness. The base diesel and spice tones of the strain add a nice counterpoint to the fruit’s sweetness. A Sativa-dominant hybrid, Lemon Pie makes you energetic and also heightens creativity.

Peaches and Mango Kush:
Succulent and crunchy peach is the quintessential summer fruit. Add a tropical twist to this classic favorite with Mango Kush. A strain of Indica, Mango Kush tastes like actual mango and also has a hint of pine in it. It keeps you happy and relaxed, with a slight chance of making you euphoric and giggly.

Mangoes and Green Crack:
The king of fruit can catapult your high to the next level. Chemically speaking, mangoes have myrcene terpenes that are also found in marijuana. This component assists in a faster and more efficient uptake of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This helps you to get high quicker, and it lasts longer as well.

While mangoes would go well with any strain of cannabis, heighten your enjoyment with Green Crack, which is cannabis at its purest. Its earthy, citrus notes beautifully complement the flavor of mangoes. A pure Sativa strain, it will leave you energetic and happy throughout the day.

Blueberries and Grape Ape:
Combining blueberries with Grape Ape will give you a nice heady buzz. The grape and berry notes of this Indica strain pairs well with the deliciousness of the blueberries. It’s the perfect way to relax on a lazy summer afternoon.

Oranges and Sour Diesel:
While oranges and weed are a fairly popular combination, we recommend pairing orange with Sour Diesel. A Sativa strain, its pungent taste goes well with the light, citrus taste of oranges. Stay energized with this delicious and potent combination.

Cucumber and Super Lemon Haze:
What better way to beat the summer heat than with cucumbers? Pair this fruit with Super Lemon Haze to enhance its refreshing effects. This sweet, citrusy flavored Sativa dominant hybrid will leave you euphoric and recharged.

Tomatoes and Girl Scout Cookies:
The sweet, earthy flavor of the Girl Scout Cookies – a hybrid strain – blends beautifully with the tanginess of the tomatoes to give you the ultimate feeling of relaxation.

Avocados with Liquid Butter:
Liquid butter enhances the buttery goodness of avocados. This powerful Indica strain relaxes your muscles, but also gives you the munchies. But, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Here’s a simple recipe for delicious weed-infused guacamole to satiate your hunger.

This is a basic guide to get you started on pairing weed with your food. Feel free to explore further to see what fruits and flavors blend well with your chosen strain of weed. Find the perfect pairs and take your enjoyment of cannabis to the next level. This summer, go from being a stoner to a discerning weed connoisseur.

Have a good week, and stay responsible!
