Best Strains for a Crafternoon




One of my favourite things to do is a crafternoon, a crafting afternoon. As one might expect, that is an afternoon of crafting with your buds. Getting together as a group and making a bunch of fun things is a great way to spend a day. You can all do the same sort of thing or you can work on your own projects, the main thing is that you definitely shouldn’t be sober. Some prefer to drink for their crafternoons, but many think that having a smoke is much more appropriate for a creative crafting session with your buds. These are the best strains for a full and fun crafternoon. 


Kali Mist


This Sativa dominant strain is bright and perky providing energy that is great for fueling creativity. This strain is not only very energetic but works well as a painkiller, especially for PMS. Kali Mist is also a beautiful strain physically with its stunning flowers, thick layers of resin and tall, lean stems. The scent is both spicy and exotic which just makes it a pleasure to smoke. This strain has also won a couple of awards, including the Cannabis Cup in 1995 (Hydro Cup) and in 2000 (Seed Company Sativa Cup). She has a flowering time of 10 – 12 weeks and can be grown indoors or in a greenhouse. 




This is a relaxed and meditative strain that is also very creative. It is also very strong with a THC level of up to 23%. She is perfect for an afternoon of chatting and making things and a very popular medicinal strain. She is often recommended to those who suffer from depression, anxiety, pain, nausea, migraines, loss of appetite, epilepsy or arthritis. As it is Sativa dominant and quite uplifting it is a perfect strain for anyone who needs to medicate during the day. For anyone who usually struggles with social situations due to anxiety, this is a fantastic socialising strain. She will flower in around 9 weeks and can be grown indoors or outdoors. 




Jillybean is a great strain that is both vibrant and beautiful with an uplifting but not overwhelming effect. It is fantastic for improving mood, reducing stress and bringing on a blissful euphoria. It removes creative blocks and inhibitions so absolutely perfect for crafting. It was created by combining Cindy 99, Romulan and Orange Skunk. The flavours range from citrus to sugar with a variety of fruits in between. She is a lovely bright strain that is perfect for a sunny afternoon with your friends. Her THC level is only 11% which means she is great for anyone who wants something a little more relaxed. She has a flowering time of 8 weeks and can be grown indoors or outdoors. 


Blue Dream


This strain is extremely energetic and cerebral which makes it great for opening up the creative pathways. It’s also powerful and long-lasting with a THC level of 25%. This does mean it may be a little bit intense for anyone with a lower tolerance or new smokers. Blue Dream was created by mixing a variety of fantastic strains. Super Silver Haze, Blueberry, Thai, Mexican and Afghani. It has a medium level of CBD at 1 – 5% which also makes it a great medicinal strain, especially for anyone suffering from PMS. She is well known for her amazing yields of dense buds, perfect for commercial growers. Blue Dream grows well indoors or outdoors and has a flowering time of 65 – 70 days. 




If you are getting into some slightly more fun and freeform crafts then LSD is the best strain. It won the Indica cup in 2008 and has a powerful, euphoric and psychedelic effect. The THC level usually sits at 25% so it can be pretty strong. It was created by crossing Skunk #1 and Mazar, so no wonder it won an award. The flavour and scent have a lot of that classic Skunk #1 feel to them. Musky and strong with an intense shot of earth and chestnut. She is also great for beginner growers because she is super resistant to mould and fungus. This means she can grow in a wide variety of environments. She can grow indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse and has a flowering time of 60 – 65 days. 


OG Kush


OG Kush is uplifting and enhances creativity without being slow or sluggish. This strain is perfect for anyone suffering from depression, PTSD or Parkinsons. It was created by combining Pakistani Kush, Chemdawg and Lemon Thai. Well, we think OG Kush is made of these boys but honestly, the genetics are a bit of a mystery. This means the aroma and flavour are dark and tangy with just a hint of citrus and sweetness. This is a great strain for a really relaxed but creative afternoon just enjoying the process of crafting. OG Kush can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse and has a flowering time of 8 weeks. 


Amnesia Haze


This strain is famous for being cerebral and euphoric, perfect for an afternoon of arts and crafts. This strain is potent but not too strong with a THC level of 22%. It is also perfect for anyone who is dealing with depression as it has a delightfully uplifting effect. It was created by crossing Amnesia, Haze and Super Skunk. Amnesia Haze is fast flowering and produces large, dense buds covered in a thick layer of resin. The buds themselves taste sweet with just a hint of that musky Skunk flavour. She is a great strain for beginner growers because she is hardy and versatile. She can easily grow indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. She also has a flowering time of 77 days.
