Top 10 Hybrid Strains for Making Me Energetic

You may be the most skilled or talented person in a field, but if you become low-energy, your upstage won’t be long in coming.

Never forget this: your popularity is directly connected to how prolific you are in your field. If you write one good song, people will praise you, but you had better keep them coming.

Sadly, we are not in a position to be high-energy throughout, for we live through daily routines that usually drain us.

Also, as we lose the currency of youth – as we get older – we progressively lose the raw energy we possessed as younglings.

But then it’s not like we are helpless against these shifts in energy levels, for there are various things we can do to preserve our energy.

Health professionals advocate for working out, having quality sleep, and avoiding cigarettes and alcohol as some of the ways to preserve (and increase) our energy.

But did you know that marijuana can be an effective tool for increasing energy?

Top Marijuana Strains for Increasing Energy

People use marijuana to boost their energy levels, and the following strains are particularly useful in boosting energy:

1. Pineapple Express

With THC levels as high as 24%, this strain delivers powerful cerebral and physical effects and motivates you to work. As the name suggests, this strain has a pineapple flavor, with a mango undertone, and yes, it leaves a pleasant aftertaste. A descendant of Hawaiian and Trainwreck, this strain is also great for managing chronic fatigue syndrome.

2. Chemdawg

This strain is popular among veteran marijuana users. The offspring of OG Kush and Sour Diesel, packs high THC and enhances rapid action. The strain is known for its pungent aroma reminiscent of diesel. With the strong scent that it emits, you might want to roll your windows down while driving to air out your clothes and stay low-key.

3. Stardawg

Native to California, this strain is a hybrid of Tres Dawg and Chemdog 4. Its name (Stardawg) is inspired by its star-like trichomes and the parent (Tres Dawg). The THC levels of this strain can be as high as 22%. It emits a nutty aroma, with a diesel undertone, and the inexperienced consumers may find the aroma troubling. However, its effects are as rapid as you’d wish; it’s like taking a punch.

4. Trainwreck

Trainwreck is an amazingly potent strain that delivers strong and quick effects. It triggers a rush of adrenaline, before a cool buzz envelops your body, making you feel revitalized. Trainwreck is a descendant of Thai, Mexican, and Afghani strains. Bred in Northern California, this strain has attracted a following around the world.

5. MAC

MAC, short for Miracle Alien Cookies, was created by Capulator and is an offspring of Alien Cookies and a hybrid of Starfighter and Colombian. This strain is balanced as it contains 50% indica and 50% sativa. Its dark-hued, chunky buds have a zesty aroma. Its THC levels can be around 20%.


SFV OG is short for San Fernando Valley OG, and from the name, you can guess where it originated. This sativa-dominant strain is typically tall, with narrow leaves, and it produces buds with a compact, dense structure. The orange pistils and star-like trichomes give the buds a unique appearance.

7. Sundae Driver

Cannarado Genetics propagated this strain by breeding Grape Pie with Fruity Pebbles OG (FPOG). Its moderate THC levels range between 14% and 16%. This strain works great for managing both mental issues and physical ailments. The buds are sea-green and densely packed with trichomes.

8. Cherry Pie

An offspring of Durban Poison and Grand Daddy Purple, Cherry Pie also goes by Cherry Kush. Its buds are tightly packed, greenish buds, with yellow pistils, and lilac leaves. With 20% THC and average-sized buds, Cherry Pie produces a flavor reminiscent of cherries. Its effects usually start slow and build into a solid high. The effects are usually quick in coming but stick around for long.

9. Bruce Banner

If you are familiar with the Marvel Comics, you must know about Bruce Banner and how he turned into a beast. This is what it’s like to use this highly potent (30% THC) marijuana strain. You will go from a low-energy mortal into an indomitable warrior. Needless to say, this strain has won numerous awards and attracted a following in all corners of the wind. But don’t let the name confuse you, this strain is packing a citrusy aroma, and a flavor reminiscent of berries.

10. AK-47

Propagated by Serious Seeds in the Netherlands, it may have a menacing name, but its effects usually build up slowly and stay with you for a lot longer. During the vegetative stage, the strain produces a zesty smell, but upon hitting maturity, its chunky and unique buds, together with the starry trichomes, produce a fruity aroma. The buds make for smooth and potent smoke.

Boosting Energy with Marijuana

Energy is the currency of life. I mean, there’s nothing you would be able to do if your batteries were flashing at zero. But that’s not our focus.

Maybe you hit the bar the previous night and wasted yourself silly, only to awaken in a strange bed at midday and realize you have a massive assignment due in 24 hours.

You cannot will yourself into being energetic. This is where marijuana comes in. You light a joint and within a few minutes, your brain receives that much-needed boost.

Of course, these highly-potent strains are resource-intensive, and so, you have to use them on a full stomach.

If you are a lazy bum, marijuana won’t suddenly make you a hardworking person, but if you are a motivated person, but are lacking energy, the above strains can help you.
