Justin Hartfield plays a lot of golf, and when he does, he’s almost invariably high. He’s the Southern California-based CEO of Weedmaps, an outfit often described as a Yelp! for pot, and he’s serious about using cannabis to improve his game.
Different strains of marijuana will have different effects on you. Indica strains will have kind of a body high effect, while a sativa will be more like a head high.
So there’s different types of weed for different times in the round. If I had my druthers, I’d start with a strain that was very high in THC-v. For me, that’s really energetic and really gets me going and excited on the first couple of holes. There’s no sort of lethargy or anything like that. It’s like the perfect, ultimate, morning, no-comedown kind of high. A strain that’s high in THC-v is called Green Crack.
Around the fifth or sixth hole, I like to move to a high-THC sativa. Maybe something like a Tangie, which is a tangerine-smelling [strain], a really delicious kind of flower. Or maybe I’ll move to a haze, like a Lemon Haze.
