FIRE FEMINIZED STRAINS
The ever-popular Girl Scout Cookies teamed up with the newly minted cannabis celebrity Gelato. Joining dank forces in superhero fashion, the outcome of this pairing was made manifest in Cookies Gelato. Packing a punch with up to 28% THC, she’s pretty much as potent as you can get, delivering an immediate high that hits from the top down. Although not a smoke for novices, seasoned smokers love the cerebral, almost psychedelic buzz that comes with a nice relaxing touch. Sugary sweetness, a hallmark flavour of Cookies strains, makes it difficult to put the strain down, but then her massive potency helps keep you in line.
Blue Dream is another legendary hybrid that people love for its relaxing qualities, morale-boosting euphoria, and overall feel-good high that brings a smile to your face. It’s a cross of Blueberry and Haze that produces a sweet, berry, terpene profile that’s dominant in myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene.
When it comes to getting high, how do you explain the experience to someone who’s never tried weed? Ask a seasoned stoner how many different ways cannabis can make you feel and they’ll tell you effects fall under a few umbrellas: energizing, uplifting, euphoric, relaxing, or sleepy.
Other euphoric stains include GSC and Wedding Cake.
Relaxed: Blue Dream
“Think of it as a home stereo system,” said Jikomes. “You’ve got one dial for the bass, and one dial for the treble, and one for the volume, etc. Every dial is always tuned to something, and you’re just tuning them to different ratios.”
OG Kush is the hybrid of all hybrids that swept California by storm in the 1990s and set the bar for many of the high-potency strains we smoke today. It has a flavor of earthy, sour, gassy, and skunky terpenes that we’ve come to identify as “kush,” which give way to an intense cerebral experience.
Other relaxing strains include: Apple Fritter and Purple Punch.
Though it can be extremely potent, OG Kush is still the perfect example of a long-lasting euphoric high that doesn’t much teeter toward feeling energizing or sleepy—you’ll just be stoned.
Determining the best strains of all time is like trying to pick the best songs of all time. There’s an endless amount of factors, epic contenders, and at the end of the day, it all comes down to a matter of taste. However, like songs, certain varieties of flower undeniably shine above the rest. These strains, regardless of their current availability, have shaped the modern market and today’s popular products.
As she elaborated, “Maui Wowie was my go-to to when I had to wean off the Sour because my tolerance was getting too high. Since I’ve been in California, I would say Aster Farms’ Maui OG is my newest everyday go-to because it has that radiant effect, allowing me to live my life and do all the things I want to do while still feeling high and getting the medicinal benefits I’m looking for.”
What makes a strain great?
The final contributing factor that can make a strain great is its influence on the weed world at large. These strains rose to popularity because of their unique terpene profiles but went on to be cultural phenoms in their own right, helping to shape products and crosses we enjoy today.
Genetics get watered down over time and cross-bred into oblivion. As with NY Sour Diesel, which revolutionized the cannabis market in NYC in the late ’90s and early 2000s, great strains are ephemeral. While still popular, the Sour Diesel you’re picking up at your local dispensary doesn’t hold a candle to the original cut Manhattanites were paying $100 a gram for in 2007. However, not all legendary strains have faded over time. Many of those that made this list are alive and well and readily available.
When asked about the best strains, Farrar replied, “Super Silver Haze is the first strain that really comes to my mind. I’ve literally been growing it for 25 years. We just had a batch of Super Silver Haze that came out at 31% THC, which is pretty fucking radical for a sativa like that.”
