Are you a confident and kingly Leo? A deep and philosophical Sagittarius? Or perhaps an adventurous Capricorn? Whatever your Sun sign is, there is a specific strain of weed out there for you!
Astrology is the study of the positions and motions of the celestial bodies. Some people firmly believe that the location of these structures in the sky has a profound effect on human traits, behaviour, and experiences. Many remain sceptical of astrology and brush it off as pseudoscience, whereas others are heavily invested. Regardless of your stance on the topic, you have to admit that astrology books and horoscopes can sometimes seem eerily accurate.
There are 12 Sun signs in the zodiac, each one assigned to a different period of the year. Moreover, every sign is associated with its own personality and temperament. For those who like to smoke weed, this means that your Sun sign can be linked to a particular strain based on these characteristics. Check out the list below to see what kind of weed best suits your sign.
AQUARIUS (January 20th – February 18th)
People born during this time of year tend to be unique, introverted, and independent. They think deeply about the world and lend their time to good causes. One of their major dislikes is boring situations. As an Aquarius, it can help to smoke a low-THC strain before entering such scenarios in order to add some entertainment—without getting too baked. With a THC level of 9%, Fast Eddy is perfect for the job.
PISCES (February 19th – March 20th)
Pisces-born are friendly, artistic, creative, and gentle individuals. The water element associated with this sign makes them highly sensitive to emotions. They love to spend time alone, yet have many friends ready when they are feeling social. Those with this Sun sign can greatly benefit from strains with balanced THC:CBD ratios, such as Shark Shock CBD. The THC will help to stimulate creativity whilst the CBD will keep them grounded.
ARIES (March 21st – April 19th)
The sign of the ram. Aries is characterised by the element of fire, a trait clearly seen in the personality of those born into this Sun sign. They have a tendency to want to take control and be the best they can be. They can also be very impatient. Aries could definitely learn to take a back seat and chill out at times. They are very well-suited to indica-dominant strains that will help them take their foot off the gas for a while, like Monster Zkittlez.
TAURUS (April 20th – May 20th)
The sign of the bull. Taurus is aligned with the earth element and the date 4/20, perhaps a clue that this sign loves the occasional hit of weed? Taurus is associated with grounded personalities who value romance, quality food, and long periods of rest. This love for all things lavish can be easily met with a strain like Strawberry Cough. This variety provides a euphoric sativa high and sweet tastes of strawberries, everything a Taurus needs to feel as though they are dabbling in the exotic.
GEMINI (May 21st – June 20th)
Geminis are defined by their strong communication skills, fast-paced thoughts, business-savvy nature, and ability to talk… a lot. It could be beneficial to blaze up a strong indica as a Gemini if you feel overwhelmed by your need to express yourself and work. However, you could always embrace your forward form of communication by smoking up a strong sativa and philosophising with some close friends. Super Silver Haze will set your unique traits into overdrive. The powerful sativa high will inspire creative thoughts to rise to the surface. Get ready for some interesting conversation!
CANCER (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancer is a water sign, a group associated with emotions and sensitivity. Cancers are intense, loving, intuitive, and perceptive. Those of this star sign often let their feelings get the better of them and can become moody. Their emotional intensity draws them toward comfort, trusted friends, reading, and creative outlets. The emotional sensitivity of this Sun sign might make many Cancers prone to anxiety and paranoia when smoking. For this reason, it’s recommended to blaze up high-CBD strains such as Candida (CD-1), which contains 20% of the cannabinoid.
LEO (July 23rd – August 22nd)
As a fire sign, Leos are innately fierce, creative, and generous. Their weaknesses include arrogance, stubbornness, and the tendency to overwork and burn out. To remedy this, tame your inner lion and blaze up some relaxing indicas. Blue Cheese is an award-winning, 100% pure indica specimen. She offers a heavy body high that will catapult you into a meditative mindset.
VIRGO (August 23rd – September 22nd)
This star sign is associated with practicality, philosophy, and loyalty. Weaknesses of this star sign usually involve shyness, overworking, and worrying. As an earth sign, Virgos have a deep love for nature. A potent sativa, such as Neville’s Haze, will assist Virgos in harnessing their practical drive, and will catalyse the motivation to go out and immerse themselves in natural settings.
LIBRA (September 23rd – October 22nd)
People born into this star sign are peaceful, cooperative, and highly social. They dislike spending too much time alone. As an air sign, Libras are also characterised by intelligence and the need for mental stimuli. Gorilla Glue is a strain that will definitely satisfy the stimulation and intelligent discussion required by these individuals. A massive THC level of 28% will result in deep conversations fuelled by a buzzing, cerebral high.
SCORPIO (October 23rd – November 21st)
Those born into the Scorpio Sun sign are outgoing, assertive, stubborn, and like to take charge. They love truth, facts, and being right, yet can fall into the trap of being distrusting and jealous. Scorpios are defined by bravery. A strain such as Bruce Banner 3, with a THC level of 27%, will give them a chance to put their minds to the test.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22nd – December 21st)
The Sagittarius sign gifts people with philosophical and open minds. As curious and motivated individuals, Sagittarius are travellers and adventures with undying wanderlust. Their thirst to see something new and experience different cultures cannot be quenched. Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant strain that offers those born into this sign adequate energy to go and run forest trails, hike mountains, and surf waves.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd – January 19th)
These winter-born souls are responsible, disciplined, and exhibit impressive self-control. This earth sign is practical and grounded. Yet, this element can also make them stiff, stubborn, and unable to compromise. When this quality gets out of hand, it’s time to self-reflect with a bowl full of Larry Bird Kush. This 50/50 indica/sativa strain will relax the body whilst giving you enough mental energy to think things through.
