The Best Cannabis Strains for Beer Enthusiasts

The two most popular mild-altering substances in America are cannabis and beer. For centuries, cannabis has been used around the world for recreational and medical use while beer has always been a stable alcoholic drink. There are many cannabis strains that produce very similar effects to those produced by alcohol so it makes complete sense why some people would enjoy combining these two substances. All you have to do is choose your favorite beer and decide on which cannabis consumption method you prefer. If you’re not sure whether you prefer vaping or smoking, then take a look at what Grasscity offers.

What to consider when mixing cannabis with beer

The number one thing to remember when consuming beer and cannabis is to consume responsibly. Make sure that you never get behind the wheel and drive while under the influence of these mind-altering substances. There are no rules to pairing weed and beer. There isn’t a specific beer that has to be paired with a certain strain, as long as you like the way the two complement each other, that’s all it takes to have a good pairing. Finally, do not overdo it. Avoid consuming too much alcohol and cannabis at the same time because this can induce what is known as “greenies” in the stoner community: vomiting that is induced by consuming too much alcohol and cannabis at the same time.
