Each year, the neighborhood of Fremont in Seattle hosts an annual celebration of the beginning of summer with the famous Fremont Solstice Parade. Featuring a dazzling display of intricately crafted costumes, food and beverages, and live music, the Fremont Solstice Parade is an unforgettable experience that any and all residents of Seattle must enjoy at least once in their lives. However, the experience is heightened in the age of recreational cannabis, as a variety of unique and potent strains exist to lend even more joy to your parade-viewing adventure. Here are some of the top strains we think will perfectly fit the atmosphere of the Fremont Solstice Parade.
Best Strains for the Fremont Solstice Parade: Blue Dream
Blue Dream has a long reputation as a go-to strain for cannabis enthusiasts, and for good reason. Its delicious blueberry flavor makes for an easy smoke ideal for passing around, and the fun, bubbly high that results from just a few tokes keeps cannabis consumers coming back for repeated purchases.
As a potent hybrid strain, Blue Dream instills a deep, clear-headed euphoria in any who encounter it. With most batches testing around 20% THC, new or inexperienced cannabis users should go slow with their dosing, especially before venturing out to the hustle and bustle of a parade.
Best Strains for the Fremont Solstice Parade: Purple Punch
Perhaps one of the most famous indica strains on the market today, Purple Punch lives up to its name, packing a powerful body high that warms from within and induces comfort with every movement. While those who smoke Purple Punch can find themselves locked to the couch for hours, in small doses, this strain becomes the perfect companion for even mundane activities. For those with low cannabis tolerance, a small nip is all it takes to slip into a joyous mood for enjoying the Fremont Solstice Parade.
Best Strains for the Fremont Solstice Parade: Green Crack
Known as an intense sativa, Green Crack is not a typical cannabis strain. Its clear-headed, energetic effects distinguish it from other sativas, as its psychoactive effects will not necessarily produce explosions of creativity, but can provide a much-needed mood-booster for dreary days at home doing chores.
At an event like the Fremont Solstice Parade, Green Crack can serve as an enhancer for the excitement already unfolding, making the experience of eating food, listening to music and taking in stunning art all richer and more meaningful. While your memory may be affected in the short-term, you’ll remember your adventure with Green Crack forever.
Best Strains for the Fremont Solstice Parade: Gelato
Gelato is a smooth hybrid strain, known for effects that exemplify the best of its esteemed lineage of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Recognized as one of the more powerful hybrids available today, users with low tolerance should exercise proper dosing procedure before engaging with Gelato. At low doses, however, the resulting effects can instigate a light and cheerful mood that seems to carry one throughout the entire day.
In general, Gelato is known as a relaxant, so anyone who suffers from anxiety or nerves among large groups of people should consider Gelato for its ability to alleviate social distress. Most who encounter Gelato come away with a bouncy, buoyant energy, so introducing this signature strain to friends has the potential to impress.
