Just swipe right on the person of your dreams? If you’re feeling a little jittery for your first date (hookup culture aside) or if you just need to feel more confident about yourself, good ol’ weed can help.
These are the best strains out there for boosting your confidence to help you bring some chill to an awkward date or to help you comfortably relax and be yourself in front of your new boo thing. No matter the situation, sometimes we can all use a little confidence boost. Try these:
Sour Tsunami (hybrid)
This hybrid is perfect for confidence related anxiety thanks to it’s extremely relaxing and uplifting effects. It is one of the more popular strains made famous from its specific high-CBD breeding. It can treat pain and severe inflammation while also producing a significant cerebral effect from the THC content, which usually falls under 10%. It’s a pretty balanced 1:1 THC:CBD ratio most of the time, and the CBD content is great for anxiety or the jitters. Keep this strain in mind next time you need a confidence boost but can’t get too high.
Harlequin is another high CBD, low-THC strain that’s perfect for helping you with your self-esteem and comfort level in strange or new social situations. It’s a 75/25 sativa-dominant strain that will provide clear sativa mental effects that help you to relax and focus, which can help you become a good conversationalist. Harlequin almost always produces a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio, which makes it highly effective for pain management and social anxiety because the CBD counteracts the paranoia that can be caused by THC while making the pain relief even stronger. Smoke this before public speaking, introducing yourself to someone new.
Strawberry Cough (sativa)
Strawberry Cough has been meticulously studied because it’s proven to be one of the best strains available today for social anxiety management. It can help you stay casual and content no matter who you’re with or what you’re doing. It’s also very useful for helping you ground and center yourself in times of extreme stress. It comes with skunky strawberry flavor and an overwhelming strawberry aroma that can produce uplifting and euphoric cerebral effects.
