8 Cannabis Strains That Will Make You Exclaim “Holy Cow!”

Because every day must be deemed a holiday (however pithy) in this digital world, July 12th was “Cow Appreciation Day,” which sounds udderly ridiculous until you realize what our bovine buddies have contributed to the cannabis moo-vement. In addition to a number of cow-themed strains such as Alpha Cow, Madcow, Purple Cow, and Afghan Cow, our comely cattle companions have also inspired an oft-used phrase used in many a Leafly review: “Holy cow!”

In honor of these dearly beloved domesticated ungulates, here are eight cannabis strains that inspired Leafly reviewers to exclaim “Holy cow” that I’ve helpfully paired with a corresponding gif.

It is a GREAT get up and go, but be warned, you might [not] comprehend what you [are] getting up and going to. […] It was a fun experience though. :3” – thewhitewidow
