The holiday season is officially here, and with it comes the winter chill that sets the vibe for this time of year. One of the many great things about living in the Bay Area is that this chill is notably more mild than most chills around the country, but we still like having a solid stash of sativas on deck to warm our insides up.

Here are five of our favorite sativa selections currently available across the Elemental menu:

Connected’s Gelonade Flower: Bringing some sweet, summer-like vibes when it’s needed most, Connected’s Gelonade (23.20% THC) is kickin’ new flava both in ya’ ear and ya’ taste buds. Crossing Lemon Tree x Gelato #41 to create a unique terpene profile that’s a combination of citrus, fruit, and vanilla, Gelonade offers visually striking buds that provide frosty purple structures with orange, red hairs protruding throughout. Ideal for anytime use – $55/eighth, WSL.

Up North’s Durban Poison Flower: The creme de la creme of sativa-dominant selections, Up North’s Durban Poison offering (38.50% THC) does its part in continuing the legacy of this legendary strain. Showcasing tall, hearty nuggets with a vibrant green body emitting a sweet, piney flavor it’s immediately apparent how DP has withstood the test of time. While this strain is normally a high tester in cannabinoids, this batch is among the most potent to ever enter through the doors of EWC – get some while you can! Great for wake-and-bake sessions and early-morning use – $50/eighth, WSL.

Lowell Farms’ Mother’s Milk Bubble Hash: Toss in a bit of Lowell Farms’ Mother’s Milk Bubble Hash (59.79% THC) with your hot chocolate for a winning combination sure to warm you up on a cold day. Providing golden-brown, granular hashish that’s ideal for either sprinkling in with flower for added potency or consuming alone from a specialized hash pipe. Named for its fragrance of ‘powdered milk and delicate earthy terpenes,’ Milk offers a nuanced flavor profile and is closer to a balanced hybrid than most sativa-dominant varieties – $25/gram, WSL.

Stiiizy’s Sour Tangie Pod: Boasting one of the most unique, immediately recognizable flavor profiles we can think of, Sour Tangie is suitable for any season, and the folks at Stiiizy have captured its essence and packaged it all up in a ready-to-use cartridge for your consuming pleasure. Weighing in at 88.58% THC, Sour Tangie packs a punch in both the terpene and cannabinoid departments, making for a well-round experience that has propelled ST to strain stardom. Great to slip into your pocket for use throughout the day – $20/half gram, WSL.

Lost Farms’ Blueberry Chews: A true rarity in the cannabis world, this sativa-dominant Blueberry variety provides a memorable confectionary experience for the holiday season. As Blueberry cannabis varieties are generally indica-dominant, Lost Farms’ Blueberry Chews is an opportunity for fans of both Blueberry and sativas to get their fill within a single product. Offering 100mg THC spread out over 10 chews, Lost Farms is made with live resin for a clean experience true to the nature of the original strain used. Start with one bite, wait two hours, and increase as needed – $20/each, WSL.

So cheers to the holiday season, mild Bay winters, and quality cannabis – ask your consultant to check out these, and other, sativa-dominant varieties on your next visit.

Be well!
