Prep for Game 7 of the World Series With These LA Strains and DispensariesGage PeakeNovember 1, 2017
As veteran MLB columnist for Yahoo Sports Jeff Passan tweeted out earlier today, tonight’s matchup is the 2,468th and final MLB game of the season, and if the previous six games are any indication, tonight’s action will truly be invigorating.
While we have both Dodgers and Astros fans in our Seattle and California offices, only one team operates in a market with legal dispensaries (sorry, Texas). So with cannabis legal for medicinal use (and soon to be legal for adult use) in California, we thought we’d help out our fellow Dodgers fans down in the City of Angels with some cannabis strain and dispensary recommendations to either help celebrate a big win tonight or help ease the pain of a loss.
(Don’t forget, game time is set for 5:20 p.m. (Pacific) and is televised nationally on FOX.)
This sativa strain gets its roots straight from Los Angeles in Venice Beach. Venice OG is a powerful sativa-dominant strain that will certainly get your party started off the right way, giving you energetic effects that make it a great daytime option. It shouldn’t make you the slightest bit sleepy, so give this strain a try pre-game, or maybe later on in the game to stay awake.
Venice OG is available at Buddha Company Pre-Ico in Los Angeles.
Related to OG Kush, the San Fernando Valley-based 818 OG is a popular indica strain down in California. Great for treating pain, loss of appetite, and insomnia, give this strain a try before munching on some of your favorite game time snacks—its very fruity flavors will definitely not disappoint.
You can find 818 OG at several locations in LA, but give The Green Easy a try in the city.
LA Kush should be a top choice for any Dodgers fan tonight, with its heritage coming from Los Angeles. It’s a hybrid mix of OG Kush, and Abusive OG, giving consumers happy effects that will bring a smile to their faces (just like a Yasiel Puig home run would).
If you’re looking to alleviate stress from the game, this is the strain for you, and you can find it at the Herbal Pain Relief Center.
One of the more well-known strains on our list, LA Confidential is a very popular indica that features buds with a frosty, lime green appearance along with little purple leaves. The taste is always smooth and piney, with a classic skunky smell you can’t stop sniffing. If you find yourself watching the game in the top of the seventh inning and the Dodgers are down by five runs, this might be the strain for you.
Give LA Confidential a try at THClear DTLA in downtown LA.
Last but certainly not least, this strain has already been mentioned before in this list, but we figured we should still include it as it has great Los Angeles roots. Abusive OG is a popular Californian cut of OG Kush that inherited the nickname of its original grower. Despite its violent name, Abusive OG will ease you into a peaceful state of mind that fades over time into full-body relaxation. This is another great end-of-your-day strain, so maybe after celebrating a hard-earned Dodgers win, give it a try to ease into a nice sleep.
Find Abusive OG at the Rose Collective.
