We’re your friendly South Seattle legal weed shop, and today we’re talking about the best strains for socializing and having fun.

Everybody likes to have fun with friends, right? Beach parties, board game night, hiking through forest trails, or simply hanging out in the kitchen: your best buds make everything better.

In fact, you can amp up your social enjoyment even more by sharing a puff or two of carefully-selected cannabis. Here are some of the best strains for euphoric, talkative socializing:

  • Banana Kush 
    A West Coast strain that crosses Ghost OG and Skunk Haze, Banana Kush is great for social events. It’s indica-dominant, which gives it some of its party-friendly properties, but still has a bit of a sativa buzz. The name comes from the fact that – wait for it – it smells and tastes like bananas. This strain is great for stimulating creativity and sparking great conversations. It’s also awesome for relaxing your inner introvert and making you feel like a smooth, easy talker.
  • Red Dragon
    A hybrid cross between West Himalayan Kush and Utopia Haze, ride this dragon for happy, giggly and upbeat feels. It’s slightly sativa dominant and has a sweet, fruity aroma. Consuming it will make you giggly and upbeat, while its taste will satisfy even the most discerning connoisseurs.Pro tip: Red Dragon isn’t great for people prone to anxiety though, as it can heighten that feeling. But if your neutral space is chill, ride the dragon for max upbeat feels.
  • Vortex
    If you’re looking for a rush of euphoria, Vortex is the strain for you. With an 80/20 sativa dominant ratio and a massive THC content, it won High Times’ Best Sativa in 2010 and was featured in the publication’s Top 10 in 2007. Descended from Space Queen and Apollo 13, this strain smells lemony and sweet with just a hint of tropical mango. Its effects vary from racy and energetic to heavy and disorienting, but it’s almost always a good choice for hanging out.
  • Blue Goo
    One of this strain’s parents, Blue Dream, has achieved legendary status on the West Coast for its gentle, relaxing, and happy high. Combine that with the mellow sativa Afgoo, and this is a strain that’s perfect for socializing. Plus, the moderate to high potency of this strain makes it great for consumption anytime.
  • Sour Dream
    Another descendant of Blue Dream, this sativa-heavy hybrid combines with Sour Diesel for a strong and sour fuel-like aroma that will give you about as much energy as drinking a cup of coffee. Its euphoric effects make it a fun strain to consume, and it can bring everything from giggle fits to long conversations – plus enough energy to go out.

So next time you’re about to go social with your friends, check out these strains of marijuana. One of them is sure to make your party pop!
