Top 5 Strains To Smoke On Rainy Days

We take a look at the top 5 strains to check out if you find yourself stuck indoors on a rainy day, and offer a few suggested activities to make the day as full as possible whilst high.

The weekend is here! You’ve had that trip to the beach planned for a while now, but the day comes around and it is absolutely miserable outside—really pouring down. What now? Well, staying at home is a completely viable option. But what to do while you’re cooped up inside? And even more importantly, what do you smoke on a day like today?

RAINY DAY? SMOKE THESE STRAINS!

In this short guide, we review the top 5 strains to smoke on a rainy day, as well as some activities to make the day not seem like a complete washout!

1. TRIPLE G

Not to be taken lightly, Triple G is an 85% indica-dominant beast and the perfect strain to kick off our list. With 26% THC, this strain offers a powerful high that provides deep feelings of contemplation, introversion, and bursts of creativity—perfect for those rainy indoor days.

Coupled with an intensely sweet flavour of chocolate and berries, and a dense, earthy, and spicy aroma to match, Triple G is one strain you’ll want on standby when the weather isn’t at its best. Artists and writers will find that just a toke or two is enough to catalyse a little herbal inspiration.

MAKE THE MOST OF THE BAD WEATHER WITH THESE INDOOR ACTIVITIES

Now that you’ve picked your favourite strain from our list of rainy day heavy-hitters, what do you do with yourself when stuck inside? At RQS, we’ve put together a few lists with recommendations for the best animated movies, games, and cartoons you can fully indulge in when high.

And what better excuse do you need than a miserable, rainy day to blaze and get stuck in a classic movie that will melt away the hours?

GAMES TO PLAY WHEN HIGH

One way to while away those long, rainy afternoons is to play games. Whether in a group or on your own, it’s a great way to pass the time. Plus, playing games while high offers the best of both worlds, right? So, whether you’re playing single-player video games like Skyrim or Grand Theft Auto, or more practical games like Bong Pong or Medusa, it’s definitely a great way to work through your stash on a rainy day.

ANIMATED MOVIES TO WATCH WHEN HIGH

Sometimes, games just aren’t appealing and you feel like watching a movie instead. But, you don’t really fancy the usual Hollywood blockbusters. So, what do you do? It might be worth picking an animated classic and getting lost for an hour or two. Consider the rich animation style of Studio Ghibli movies like Spirited Away, or the trippy visual spectacle of Walt Disney’s Fantasia.

CARTOONS TO WATCH WHEN HIGH

If games and movies aren’t grabbing your attention, what better than a rainy day of binge-watching some of the finest cartoons around to pass the time? It’s all too easy to sink a lot of time into a series without being high, so prepare to really be sucked into shows like Rick & Morty or South Park—cartoons that will certainly appeal to those that are high and feeling nothing but good vibes.

DON’T LET WET, MISERABLE WEATHER GET YOU DOWN

It’s not all fun and games on a rainy day, though, and sometimes you need that little bit of extra motivation when high. When staying at home, it is important to remember…

Stay organised: Make sure to complete your day-to-day errands and tasks before getting too locked to the couch.

Determine your tolerance level: This one is mostly common sense, but it’s crucial not to overdo it with highly potent strains if you’re new to smoking. This is especially relevant to our rainy day scenario because you’ll probably be smoking more than usual!

Pick your strain wisely: Based on the descriptions above, be sure to pick a strain that suits the types of activities you enjoy when cooped up at home. If you want to remain energised, perhaps avoid the more indica-dominant hybrids like Wedding Gelato and Triple G in favour of the sativas, and vice versa.

With that in mind, we hope this list helps you figure out what to do when your plans fall through as the rain comes crashing down.

What do you do with your cannabis plants during rain, gales or thunderstorms?

Loads of sun, long days and lots of light. Summertime is the best time for your weed plants if you are growing them outdoors. The conditions appear to be ideal for allowing your weed plants to achieve maturity. But it’s not all sunshine in the summer. Beautiful sunny days are accompanied by heavy rain showers, thunderstorms and even hail sometimes. A lot of people wonder what to do with their weed plants in such circumstances. We will give you a few tips in this article about how to protect your weed plants against bad weather as far as possible.

Should you put the weed plants indoors immediately when it rains?

We have very changeable weather now in the Netherlands. Even in the summer we consider ourselves lucky if we get to enjoy several days of hot sun in a row. The same goes for your cannabis plants in your garden. Logically they give the best yield when they get as much sunlight as possible. But as for a summer with virtually all sunny days? You can forget about that. Weed plants are regularly afflicted by rain showers. Something which the plants would rather not experience. But there’s no need for you to panic immediately. Weed plants aren’t that delicate. You don’t have to take them indoors immediately in the case of a light rain shower. Let them stay outdoors undisturbed.

Heavy Rain Showers

But what if the small rain shower develops into something much heavier? Then it’s time to take action. If your weed plants are in the flowering phase then rain can definitely affect them badly. In this phase the buds are susceptible to bud rot, and mould can occur in heavy rain showers and high humidity. The soil can also become saturated by rain which can cause the roots to become tangled up thereby weakening the weed plant. This makes the plants more susceptible to mildew. In these situations make sure your weed plants are sheltered.

Extreme weather conditions

Sometimes it doesn’t just rain but there can even be gales, hail or thunderstorms. The measures which you need to take during these extreme weather conditions are quite simple. Bring your weed plants indoors immediately. Heavy gales and hailstones can be quite detrimental to the leaves of your plants and cause leaf problems. Thunderstorms can cause stress which is also not good for the weed plants. Fortunately, extreme weather conditions are often forecast in advance so you can take account of them and get your plants indoors in good time. Moreover, these extreme weather conditions are not that common. Each summer it probably only happens once or twice that you need to move your weed plants due to thunderstorms, hail or gales.

Solutions for heavy rain showers

Given that rain is the most common problem and causes the most trouble, we give you some tips on how to protect weed plants against the rain. You can resolve it very simply by sheltering your weed plants. Read below for the options available to you.

Make a canopy

The best option is to have a canopy at home under which to put your weed plants. If you don’t have one then you can make a portable one yourself. This may take you some time to make but it will be really beneficial. A canopy will ensure that both the soil and the buds remain largely dry. And if the sun starts shining again a couple of hours later? Then you can simply remove your portable canopy.

Window sill

Another option is to put your weed plant indoors on the window sill. In this way your plants stay completely dry and they also get some light from outside. It’s not ideal but is a good temporary solution. Certainly when you live in an apartment and don’t have a dry place on your balcony. As soon as it’s dry you can of course put them back outside.

Are your weed plants already in the flowering phase and can you or your fellow residents no longer stand the overpowering scent? Then putting your weed plants indoors is probably not an option. In that case look for an alternative solution for sheltering your weed plants. Perhaps your shed or utility room. In these places you won’t be so bothered by the smell of your weed plants and they’ll keep dry.

Choice of weed seeds

Before you start cultivating you can also take the weather conditions into account. By choosing the right weed seeds you can cater for the weather. There are weed seeds specially suited to outdoor cultivation. These weed seeds can handle nature better than other weed seeds. Read our Blog to find out which weed seeds are suitable for outdoor cultivation.

Buds on your weed plants

Rain has the most influence on the flowering phase, especially on the buds. If the buds on your weed plant have been afflicted by rain, we recommend you shake them dry, though not when they’re absolutely soaking wet. Make sure there is good ventilation. To help prevent bud rot, it’s helpful to put the weed plants in a location where there’s a draught. Should any buds nevertheless go rotten, then pick them off the plant straight away. Smoking rotten buds is harmful for the lungs.

Don’t underestimate the importance of the weather conditions during cultivation. Unfortunately, when you cultivate weed seeds outdoors you are necessarily at the mercy of Mother Nature. And you don’t always get the weather conditions which you’d like. In any event, try and give your weed plants the conditions they want even in bad weather!

We will give you a few tips in this article about how to protect your weed plants against bad weather as far as possible.
