The first strain on our list is Sour Diesel. We recommend this strain for productivity because it has very awakening effects. This is a perfect strain if you need to be mentally alert, focused, and productive. Beware – it is a potent Sativa, with THC levels averaging between 20%-25%. The effects of smoking this particular strain certainly pack a fast punch that can last a couple of hours. Perfect if you need to focus and get some work done! The parents of Sour Diesel are Chem Dawg and Super Skunk. The strain also has been used to create Luca Brasi x Sour Diesel and 3rd Coast Panama Chunk.

Green Crack

Green Crack is another excellent choice for daytime productivity. This is a more mild Sativa, with an average THC reading of 15% – 20%. Even though the THC content is lower, it will certainly get you up off the couch. We recommend Green Crack to anyone who needs a good boost! Green Crack is a perfect daytime strain with delectable hints of mango. Its parent strain is Skunk No.1 and has since been used to create Grand Hustle and The Ooze (children).

Did you know – this strain was originally named Cush, but was later renamed by Snoop Dogg. Sometimes Green Crack will still be referred to as Cush, Green Cush, or even Mango Cush.

Jack Flash

Some say this strain is named Jack Flash because it will get you high in a flash! If you are seeking a strain to enjoy while maximizing daytime productivity this is another great go-to. Jack Flash is the only Indica-dominant strain on this list. We wanted to share this one with you because even though it is a different blend, you will still experience an energized high. Since it is an Indica, your body will be nice and relaxed with more of a mental uplift. Jack Flash is commonly found with a THC content reading of 18% – 20%. This strain has derived from its two parent strains Super Skunk and Haze, with one descendant: Django. This strain has very pleasant earthly aromas with subtle hints of eucalyptus, lemon, and pine. Once the bud is crushed up, these scents are elevated.

Maui Wowie (a.k.a. Maui Waui) is a well-loved Sativa-dominant strain. We recommend this strain as an excellent go-to for daytime productivity because it is stress-relieving. Sometimes, you just need to relax and take a toke before you tackle some work. This strain has around 18% – 22% THC and is known for its tropical flavors. Maui Wowie originated from the Hawaiian volcanic soils. The parent strain is even called Hawaiian, and Maui Wowie has since become a parent to two new strains: Maui Pineapple Chunk and Maui Bubble Gift.

Super Lemon Haze
