Top 10 weed strains to vape with your Xbox Series X

Top 10 weed strains to vape with your Xbox Series X

In case you didn't already know, Shantynews is basically the Digital Foundry of consuming weed while playing video games. Here's our in-depth look at the best strains to vape with the Xbox Series X.


Xbox Series X has been out for several days, and there are really no new games for this hunk of junk. Apparently, some Xbox enthusiasts have found other things to do with the console. Microsoft even issued this statement on the official Xbox Twitter page.

As intrepid games journalists of the highest order, we ignored Microsoft's wishes and started experimenting.

Please take a look at our definitive list of the Top 10 strains of weed you should vape in the Xbox Series X.

10. Cotton Candy Kush

This hybrid strain of weed is a cross between Lavender and Power Plant. It is named after its candy scent and has a balance of euphoric and calming efffects. Perfect starter strain for an Xbox Series X that has absolutely no new first party titles to entertain its players.

9. Girl Scout Cookies (GSC)

Gamers and stoners both love their sweets, am I right? Our next strain on this list is another hybrid that crosses OG Kush and Durban Poison. This herb is definitely more energizing than it is calming, so maybe it will get you a couple more teraflops of performance from your Series X.

8. Alaskan Thunder Fuck (ATF)

ATF is a sativa strain of weed that is super energizing. It is our first non-hybrid strain to make the list, and it is very well known for its creeper effect. This might be a good one to vape in your Xbox Series X before firing up a session of Minecraft.

7. AK-47

This is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that is characterized by a cerebral effect on users. With the upcoming launch of Call of Duty: Ronald Reagan's Wars, who wouldn't want to vape some weed named after an assault rifle before shooting up commie bastards?

6. Green Crack

If you were dumb enough to buy an Xbox Series X at launch, you probably aren't afraid of trying crack. Why not split the difference, dumb ass? Enjoy one of the best energizing sativas on planet Earth. Maybe you will go for a walk after vaping it in your Series X, because that thing literally has no new games.

5. Trainwreck

Microsoft and Trainwreck, name a more iconic duo. We'll wait. From Zune, to their failed tablet experiments, to Vista, to Microsoft Bob, this company is the master of tripping over their dick. Try to take the edge off of owning this worthless console by getting super ripped with this hybrid that is a blend of Mexican and Thai sativas alongside some good old Afghani indicas.

4. Northern Lights

Another classic indica known for its dank buds, resilience during growth, and fast flowering. If you are talking about powerful strains, Northern Lights is like the RTX 3090 of weed to vape in an Xbox Series X. Even though the console uses AMD chipsets, you get our point. Right?

3. Bubba Kush

You might need to chill out if you are bummed out about the delay of Halo Infinite, chief. Why not try a nice, chill indica like Bubba Kush? Like any good kush, this strain has Afghani heritage. If you really need to shutdown for the night, this is the perfect strain to vape with your Xbox Series X.

2. White Widow

One of the classic hybrid strains. White Widow is a cross between South Indian indica and Brazilian sativa herbs. It is a super energizing type of weed and really would pair well with the black console. White Widow's excellent genes have been passed down to other strains like White Rhina, Blue Widow, and White Russian. So maybe some of that goodness could help the Xbox Series X. 

1. Jack Herer

Winner of several Cannabis Cups, Jack is basically the Duke Nukem 3D of weed. This sativa-dominant strain is ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum. Does Xbox Series X even Have Duke Nukem 3D? Even Switch does...

There's our list. Please let us know if there are strains of weed that you think would vape well with the Xbox Series X in the Shacknews Chatty comments section below.

Give us a follow on Cortex.

      I remember being all excited to finally get to smoke out and fire up Quake 2 on my own computer.

      I lost all motor coordination and it was totally pointless. I don’t think I ever bothered to try smoking and playing again. In fact, the more my game time increased, the less I smoked, until I’d go years without a puff.

        But I recommend large doses of LSD to experience your Steel Battalion rig running on that new XSX.

      I got some computer hardware back from a guy who vaped. The thing was utterly clogged and gummed up with vape...sludge? grease? grime? The intake ports were almost completely clogged. Only a couple of months of use.

      This is the best gaming article I’ve read in years. I’d have thrown in Blue Dream somewhere.

      I'm amused by the level of knowledge needed to make this joke article.

      I heard CBD can also help with sleeping issues. I haven`t slept well for a month already, since I decided to quit my alcohol addiction. I hate the way how weed affects my brain, but it seems to be the only way out. Is it true?
