So, for the sake of progress, we have put together a list of the 20 strongest marijuana strains available today that illustrate how far Mary Jane has come. But like many of the strains on this list, Chem Dog must be approached with the caution it deserves. THC levels reach 15-20%, so it can kick you where it matters in no time and take you deep into your head (for better or worse) on a very cerebral journey. But like many of the strains on this list, Chemdawg must be approached with the caution it deserves.
Due to its Green Crack, OG Kush and Blue Dream origin, this lemon-scented strain offers relaxing and stimulating effects. The descent is long and sleepy, which makes it ideal for relieving insomnia and pain. MK Ultra is a cross between OG Kush and G13, another incredible one indicates that it was about to appear on this list and that, according to legend, it was raised by the CIA, the FBI and other intelligence agencies in a secret facility at the University of Mississippi. This sativa is as classic as Jimi Hendrix's epic hit of 1967 due to its psychedelic, cerebral, creative and high-energy euphoria.
Blue dream is one of the most popular strains on all the lists (Leafly, Weedmaps, The Cannabist, Complex and Weedhorn), because both experienced smokers and users of green cannabis love balanced body relaxation and euphoric brain stimulation. Maui Wowie is a legendary strain from the 1960s that has become an all-time favorite. Maui Wowie is originally from the island of Maui. They have traveled stories far and wide about how hippies and other members of the movement put it up after arriving there in the 1960s.
According to another report, Maui Wowie was a Landrace strain discovered on the island of Maui. We'll never know which account is right, but it's okay because we're glad that Maui Wowie exists. Maui Wowie is a Sativa-dominant strain that will leave you feeling energetic and euphoric. This variety is ideal for people who prefer to go outdoors rather than stay at home.
Maui Wowie is so old that the lineage has not yet been discovered. No list of the Best Herb Strains would be complete without Sativa-dominant Jack Herer. Jack Herer is named after a cannabis extremist who spent much of his time on Earth trying to legalize medicine. sour diesel is a Sativa-dominant strain created for Sativa lovers.
It's not clear who invented this potent strain. Even so, it was produced by crossing the Sour Diesel with the Super Silver Haze to create a heavy hitter. THC levels typically exceed 21 percent, making it anything but a cheating strain. Sour Diesel is ideal for relieving stress while still having enough energy to get through the day.
However, don't use this strain before going to sleep; otherwise, you may end up awake for hours instead of getting a good night's sleep. The terpene profile of caryophyllene, limonene and humulene produces intense fragrances. The name of this increasingly popular medical alternative refers to the effectiveness of its symptom relief rather than the potency of its effect. Sour Tsunami is high in CBD, up to 10% or even 11%, making it one of the most seizure-friendly treatments on the market.
THC levels, on the other hand, are deficient, usually below 10%. As a result, this is an attractive alternative for some children with severe epilepsy and others whose conditions respond to CBD. A cross of Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel, this cannabis strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid. In any case, the genetic balance of Sour Tsunami is much less important to most patients than its high CBD content.
Chronic pain, seizures, insomnia and stress could be treated with this strain. It can also help patients who need to eat more by stimulating their appetite. Sour Tsunami, like its parents, has a sour taste and aroma with strong notes of diesel and earth. Despite its popularity in California and Michigan, this strain is mainly found in the Pacific Northwest.
You're probably wondering how, exactly, we came up with The List. We admit that it's not a bad job, deciding which strains are the best of all time, but even so, the task comes with its challenges. Classifying the varied histories of these strains was not exactly easy, since the lineage, affiliation and even the birthplace of some of these strains are, at best, murky. Another true autochthonous breed, Durban is The List's only strain that comes from Africa.
A pure sativa, this strain has been used in a wide range of breeding projects, as it was one of the first strains from South Africa to show none of the autoflowering traits of ruderalis, sometimes found in wild native lines. Lately, the pure forms of Durban have been appearing in Cup competitions, and she has impressed to a large extent with her licorice flavor and her very potent “high”. White Widow was winning Cannabis Cups in Amsterdam as early as 1995, and its actual date of birth extends to almost a decade before that. A well-balanced hybrid, reportedly made by crossing a Brazilian sativa with an unknown indica from South India, has an indica-dominant and a sativa-dominant phenotype.
Both phenos are usually densely covered with trichomes, which gives it a very white appearance (and, its name). This sativa-dominant hybrid produces a balanced but highly stimulating high. The progeny of the Indica Strawberry Fields from Vermont and a mixed breed Haze, Strawberry Cough is revered among connoisseurs of good cannabis both for its exquisite taste (think berries) and its high THC content. When it has grown organically or veganically, as some would say, it tops the THC charts and claims the Cups as it should.
This slot isn't just about the indica heavy cannabis supermodel known as Chem Dog; it's also a tribute to all her sexy sister phenotypes (Chem '04, Chem's Sister, etc.) that were generated from the legendary 13 seeds found in a pound of Colorado buds purchased on a Grateful Dead tour to early 90s. From those grains emerged a line that launched a completely new generation and genetic revolution, of a newer and better species of marijuana in the world. For its part, Chem D has been the mother of more Cup-winning strains than any other in the current century, including the original OG Kush (and therefore all other OG phenotypes), Sour Diesel, Stardawg and a whole series of Chem D crosses. Known more simply as Haze, this woman is also called Nevil's Haze or A5 and was created by the Haze Brothers of Northern California.
In the early 80s, Dave Watson brought her to Amsterdam, a, k, a. Sam the Skunkman, where she was backcrossed and stabilized by Nevil, another of the legendary godparents of the breeding. A project of crossing Mexicans x Colombians x Thais x Indians (all native sativas), Haze was a fundamental import at the beginning of the genetics trade that was formed in Amsterdam during that time. When grown well, OG Kush can take home a Cup in any competition, anytime, anywhere in the world, and already takes dozens of Cups through various OG phenotypes and crosses.
Almost one in three new hybrids that come on the market has the OG stamp in its genetic code, which almost makes the OG its own subspecies within the genus Cannabis. We all owe OG Kush a debt of gratitude for helping to make way for the next generation of great cannabis lines. Without a doubt, OG is another strain that will always be on The List. I know, Blue Dream is my favorite.
Acapulco gold from the 80s is still the best better than any of the new strands Wow really that is freaking amazing No Purple Chem? Why not uncle? I heard it on The ???? Trainwreck, Lambs Bread, Cinderella 99, Cali-O, Juicy Fruit. Thanks for the information, and where can I get seeds of this variety? There is no mention of the best Australian natural. It is difficult to identify or obtain the original strain today. A totally different experience than the hydroponic skunk that seems to rule now.
I understand that this list takes into account the strain's lineage, but even with that, chem dog and chem 91 are questionable choices. I would say that those two options are based solely on other strains that were bred by crossing chemical dogs. If you have the option, would you rather smoke chemical dog instead of GG4 (I don't know how it's not included, especially if GDP is), ice cream or a cake strain? This list includes parental strains just because they are parent strains. Skunk 1, og kush, white widow, Durban poison, afghani, haze, northern lights and sour d are just classic parental strains.
And a Thai stick, really? It includes a strain that is defined as being wrapped around a stick and becoming extinct. However, I love that strawberry cough is on the list, one of my favorite sativa hybrids. Save my name, email and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Popularity can be subjective, so we turned to the information authority of cannabis strains to compile our list of the 50 best marijuana strains; leafy.
A 50% indica and 50% sativa strain that earned its name because it was very expensive when it was first sold. It is predominantly indica, but still has around 40% sativa (60% indica. THC levels can reach close to 30%, making it one of the most potent strains on the planet. The GSC will give you the powerful indica body high mixed with a strong sativa high.
OG Kush is the famous California legend that first spread in Florida, but became popular in Los Angeles. It has a complex blend of sour, skunk and citrus aromas and flavors, thanks to its myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene terpenes. While its flavors are well known, the effects are what really made OG Kush famous. The OG Kush is the original hybrid with powerful, heavy and long-lasting effects that leave you superpositioned, but not exactly stuck on the couch.
Many of the varieties we love today come from OG Kush, whether they are crosses or phenotypes, such as Kosher Kush, Triangle Kush and SFV OG. Recently, Seth Rogen confirmed that the Pineapple Express strain didn't exist until they made the movie, so there's your chicken and egg. There are many strains with all kinds of genetics that are sold as Pineapple Express today. The best known variant is from G13 Labs, which crossed Trainwreck and Hawaiian to produce a cannabis cultivar with citrus and tropical flavors, backed by Kushy earthy (you can thank Trainwreck for that).
AK-47 is one of those super popular strains that people don't know much about, apart from the fact that the buds are usually dense and flooded with orange hairs. It is believed that the lineage is a mixture of Colombian, Mexican, Thai and Afghan genetics. One of those popular varieties that go unnoticed, you know? Regardless of where and how we got AK-47, the high is known to be strong, long-lasting and mentally stimulating. Blue Dream is the best-known cannabis strain in the world.
So much so that there are several genetics and strains that claim to be the real BD. With that in mind, most of us know Blue Dream as a cross between a Haze and a Blueberry. Blue Dream lovers defend its sweet taste and mood boosting effects that make it the perfect example of a feel-good cannabis strain. It is reported that it improves mood and the effects on the head are so widespread that they have made their way into the mainstream.
Gelato came out of nowhere and set fire to the game years ago. It is the most watched variety in Weedmaps Strains. This variety, which bears the name of the dessert, has a variety of flavors. Some cultivars are grape and fizzy; others are berry and earthy; others are simply sweet and floral.
Regardless of how your ice cream smells, those powerful effects manifest quickly. Most people book Gelato for the late hours of the day because of its ability to lock it on the couch for a few hours. While there is no doubt about the popularity of Green Crack, it may surprise that it is the second most watched strain in Weedmaps Strains. Green Crack is one of those cultivars that people always suggest for daytime consumption because of its brain effects.
It usually hits you with a “Oh, HI, yeah, I'm up a little high. The buds are beautiful, with light green and orange colors, and the aroma is usually sour and citrus. Purple Haze is one of the varieties known to people who don't even smoke, largely thanks to the song of the same name and the psychedelic culture of the 60s. Choosing which varieties of weed to try from the unlimited varieties without contemplating the types of marijuana that might be growing on other planets is enough to make some users of green cannabis anxious or excited.
The first strain of grass was sent to planet Earth from Sirius, according to the Malians of West Africa, who were narrated by Herodotus around 300 BC. According to tradition, government agencies in the 1960s collected the best marijuana varieties from around the world and bred superhybrids in a secret facility. Some marijuana varieties have very strange names and you only know that they were invented under the influence. It's even quite common for really serious drug addicts to get a little depressed when they contemplate how no one will be able to smoke all the varieties of wonder weed in the universe.
So what is your vote for the strongest marijuana strain? Obviously, we have left some out of this list because we don't have space to talk about all the great varieties that exist. According to some accounts, in the 1960s, several government agencies gathered the best marijuana varieties from around the world and grew several superhybrids in a secret facility at the University of Mississippi. Some varieties of weed such as Thai Stick, like certain stars, have already become extinct, while others do not yet exist. As the name describes it, Sour Diesel offers the pungent, earthy smell of diesel that has become the defining identifier of many varieties of quality weed.
Honestly, you can't go wrong with any weed strain you choose, as long as it's grown organically. . .
