After a year from pandemic hell, many of us are finally inching closer to normalcy in our day to day lives. And in that subtle normalcy resides your morning routine. Maybe you start your day with coffee or black tea, followed by a refreshing shower and skincare products, then a dog walk and off to work. Did you know that Growers Choice has coffee-flavored strains to pair with your morning routine?
There’s nothing quite like a fresh cup of joe in the morning. Or matcha. Or black tea. The bottom line: caffeine runs our world from the minute we wake up. We could all use an extra pep in our step these days to find the motivation and energy to get going in tough times. Though our strains lack actual caffeine, they do provide a sativa-based energy boost with delicious coffee flavor. Our coffee-flavored strains fit into even the busiest, most hectic morning routines. Shop them below!
The Importance Of A Morning Routine
First and foremost, a morning routine allows you a moment of pause before you launch into a busy day. Take this moment to breathe, meditate, get your sweat on, and get some fresh air on a walk with your dog. You wouldn’t run a marathon without stretching first, right? Think of your morning routine as a mental stretch. It helps to get your body going from your brain to your muscles to your digestive system.
Possible Side Effects of Caffeine
Fact: coffee is the most popular drink in the world, with more than 400 billion cups consumed each year. According to a survey on Reuters, commissioned by the National Coffee Association, “64 percent of Americans drink a cup of coffee every day.” Needless to say, coffee is very much a part of our morning routine. And if it’s not coffee, it’s another source of caffeine, such as English Breakfast tea, chai, or matcha.
The problem with caffeine, however, is that it can lead to unwanted side effects. Too much of anything is never a good thing, even when it comes to coffee and marijuana. With caffeine, in particular, overindulgence can cause
- Increased heart rate/Breathing rate
Not to mention, some find coffee’s natural flavor offputting (hence why these crazy Starbucks drinks are so popular). Who really needs a Unicorn Frappucino at 8 in the morning?!
Benefits of Sativa Cannabis Strains
Hate to break this to you, but coffee is a drug. A naturally- occurring drug, but still a drug. A natural stimulant, if you will. So while we’re on the topic of drugs, let’s talk about marijuana! Another form of medicine provided by Mother Nature. With coffee-flavored strains, you get all the same marijuana benefits without the potential side effects we mentioned earlier. Minus the caffeine, these strains can provide users with a natural cerebral boost. It may help you feel more creative, motivated, inspired, and alive from the inside out. Everyone knows that marijuana acts as a stimulant with the right strain. It can wake you up in the mornings and start your day on the right foot.
Where to Buy Coffee-Flavored Strains
We haven’t even told you the best news yet. You can buy these delicious strains right here, at Growers Choice Seeds. No need to go anywhere or search the internet. You’ve come to the right place. We recommend the following strains for a tasty coffee (and sometimes chocolate-y) flavor…
Don’t these strains sound more like dessert than actual weed? It’s crazy to think that so many flavors and aromas come from a single plant. Even if you don’t like coffee, you can find the flavor of your choice at Growers Choice Seeds.
Coffee-Flavored Strains for Energy
Coffee flavorings aside, we recommend sativa strains as part of your morning routine. You don’t necessarily have to choose one with a coffee aroma but do pick one that leans more on the sativa side. An indica strain early in the day might lead to laziness, lethargy, and o’clock. Not exactly the sensations you want to have before an important meeting. In the marijuana community, we have what you call “wake and bake” strains. This group was designed to give users the drive they need as soon as they step out of bed.
