Published on 5/13/22
Sure, most people will denounce the truth behind the zodiac and astrology as often as they can. People will say it is a fantastical alternative universe that has no basis and is entirely made up. However, when you meet a Gemini for the first time - you just know immediately, don't you? We're going to dive deeper into this "pseudoscience," exploring the best weed for the signs and perhaps reveal which zodiac signs smoke the most ganja. Have some fun today, and check your daily horoscope while you're at it.
The Basics: Astrology 101
Astrology is defined formally as the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. There are 12 signs in the zodiac that correlate to specific dates on the calendar and are ruled by the stars. Within these 12 signs, there are 4 elements - earth, water, fire, and air. These elements, and specifically your star sign, rule how you deal with love, money, healthy, and balance.
Earth Signs: The Efficient Stoners
Here at Where's Weed, we're doing a deep dive into the signs while high, examining how they may act, what activities they will fill their time with, and most importantly, their favorite strain of cannabis.
To start, we're going to tackle the Earth element. This element is comprised of the Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn signs, and they are considered the most stable, grounded, and practical of all the zodiac.
Their pragmatic, stable selves help them embrace the work hard/play hard mentality and are known to embrace commitment, the truth, and loyalty. Between never abandoning a project or a lover and having extremely high standards for themselves - expect earth signs to always get the job done, even when baked.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Considered the artist of the zodiac, a Taurus has an innate sense of beauty and sensuality. They like to relax, nest, and gather the goods in quite the cozy space. Perhaps the sign that is most heavy on greed, a Taurus loves the finer things in life, such as luxury goods, foods, spirits, and jewels.
In addition to being divided into 12 signs within astrology, there are also 3 modalities for the signs to fall into. The three are cardinal, mutable, and fixed - and it is all about where the signs fall in their seasons. A Taurus is a fixed sign, meaning it falls in the middle of its season. But what does this actually mean, though? The Taurus is considered the least mature of the earth signs and is the most stubborn and resistant to change.
The zodiac sign, when high, may create a piece of artwork, cook a decadent meal, or re-design their luxurious space and fill it with new furnishings. It's all about the material possessions for a Taurus.
As far as a cannabis strain that pairs well with their sign, let's opt for a hybrid here. On a good day, a Taurus is hardworking, reliable, and stable. However, they are indulgent, lazy, and possessive on a bad day. It's all about a strain that can do both, and that is Blue Dream. It's a decadent, well-known strain that is sativa-dominating. As a cross between Blueberry and Haze, this balanced high is great for both body and mind to take you to wherever you want to go.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
The Virgo is considered the perfectionist of the signs. They are analytical and bring classic earth sign vibes characterized by logic, practicality, and sensibility. The Virgo takes a very systematic approach to life and values truth and justice over everything. They tend to be obsessive about minute details and can come off as type-A control freaks. They are fiercely independent and are constantly aware of the balance between their needs and the needs of others. The Virgo is a mutable sign, meaning that they bring their season to a close and are a bit more flexible with life changes.
For an Aquarius, weed may be about experimenting with new art forms or prose. With a Virgo, expect them to use cannabis for activities such as organizing their closet, filing their taxes, or organizing their weed stash by indica, hybrid, and sativa.
For the Virgo, the ideal cannabis strain is one that will keep them energized, focused, and clear-headed with a flair for some creativity. Super Lemon Haze, which is a cross between Haze and Lemon Skunk, is sure to deliver the heavy dose of energy to keep a Virgo going for hours on end with the citrusy and lemon flavors.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The Capricorn is considered the workhorse of the signs. As the oldest and wisest of the earth signs, this sign is ambitious, hardworking, and ready to get things done ASAP. As a cardinal sign, it falls at the beginning of their season and is known to take charge and hustle like no other. A Capricorn likes tangible, earth-based ideas - there is no fiery madness or watery feelings involved with this sign, and they are all about what they can actually manifest, not just imagine.
For a Gemini, weed may be a gateway into a deep, playful, and curious conversation. For a Capricorn, consuming cannabis is all about sparking creativity for the next great American novel or giving them the energy to deep clean their space so they can focus on their upcoming work projects.
The weed sign for a Capricorn - or their favorite strain of cannabis - is definitely an uplifting strain. We like the sativa-leaning hybrid, Jack Herer, which comes in at 18% THC. As a cross between Haze, Northern Lights, and Shiva Skunk, a Capricorn can expect a blissful, clear-headed, and creative mindset to tackle everything on their plate.
