Are you hoping to check a few tasks off your to-do list? Need the motivation to exercise? Plans for late-night studying? Or pushing Mario one level closer towards the next boss? Having more energy to get stuff done is something we could all use, especially these folks:

  • Parents
  • Workaholics
  • Students
  • Chronically Tired
  • Adrenaline Junkies
  • Fitness Enthusiasts
  • Video Gamers

Don’t fit into one of these molds? Start the day right with perhaps a refreshing “wake and bake” instead of your usual morning cup of coffee. You can even ditch the sugary, highly caffeinated energy drink you chug when that afternoon slump hits. So, where do you start in terms of picking a cannabis product that doses out energy?

Products listed on dispensary menus are typically labeled sativa, indica, or hybrid due to a specific terpene makeup. Terpenes are the essential oils of cannabis that work alongside cannabinoids (THC, CBD, etc.) to influence therapeutic effects. Sativas are generally more energizing, while indicas tend to be more sedating. Many energy-boosting strains consist of the limonene, alpha-pinene, beta-caryophyllene terpenes. Blends of other lesser-known terpenes may contribute to stimulating properties as well.

Here are five Illinois cannabis products or strains shown to be great for boosting energy:

Cresco Rollins

This sativa emits a strong citrus aroma and flavor with subdued notes of fuel and spice. Praised heavily by our staff and verified online reviews for its invigorating and uplifting qualities, the cultivator says this cross of Lemon Tree S1 and a Nigerian reversal makes it the ideal strain for any social or outdoor activity.

Nature's Grace & Wellness Double Durban Kush

The lineage of this sativa dominant hybrid is the reasoning behind the “double” in its name. The strain crosses Durban Poison x OG Kush with another Durban Poison, making for an intense sweet pine and fuel scent. Chores are no match for this product known for helping you stay happy, focused, and functional.

Revolution Bear Dance

A dynamic blend of fruity, floral, and earthy flavors makes this sativa dominant hybrid a standout. Coupled with mood-elevating and stress-relieving properties, you might find yourself dancing along with the “bear.” Consumers report this strain being great at fighting fatigue and easing bodily pain too.

Rythm Sour Diesel

Makes sense given the name; this refreshing and euphoric sativa boasts a pungent gas and citrus flavor. This strain is the perfect supplement for an active lifestyle. Feelings of bliss and creativity have been described by consumers as well. Other Illinois cultivators that offer their variation of this strain include Nature’s Grace & Wellness and Verano.

Verano G Wagon

This sativa dominant hybrid is a member of the cultivator’s G-Line, a line of products all bred from the parent strain G6 (a.k.a. Jet Fuel). This entry, in particular, was crossed with Ghost Train Haze, which delivers an aromatic fusion of sweet, spicy, and diesel. It has a reputation for initiating focus and get-up-and-go, with reports of it alleviating inflammation and depression too.

Honorable Mentions

      • Aeriz Jack Herer
      • Nature’s Grace & Wellness Super Nova Chocolate Bar
      • Rythm Clementine
      • Verano Sonny G
      • Wonder Wellness Focus 1:1 Prickly Pear Gummies

For a better experience, we recommend consuming energizing cannabis products after starting a task instead of beforehand. Cannabis is a great tool for enhancing an experience. It may not necessarily drive you to begin an activity and should not be relied on as such.
