The 100 cannabis strains you must try before you die

Plushberry

An introspective indica that won’t put you to sleep, Plushberry is the perfect strain for enjoying some peace and quiet. Relax with the aroma of lavender wrapped up in this cross of two more of our faves: Space Queen and Black Cherry Soda.

Also featured in:

Lemonder

For a light, euphoric strain that offers bright flavors of lemon and pine, track down the balanced Seattle-native hybrid Lemonder. A cross between Lavender, Super Lemon Haze, and OG Kush, we love its mentally stimulating qualities that don’t overwhelm.

Also featured in:

Allen Wrench

A child of popular parents (Trainwreck and NYC Diesel), the sour sativa Allen Wrench packs a punch of upbeat energy. We love harnessing its powerful cerebral qualities and energy-boosting characteristics on busy days.

Dutchberry

Ringing in at around 8% CBD and 27% THC, the giggle-inducing hybrid Dutchberry takes on the best attributes of its Dutch Treat and DJ Short Blueberry parents. A particularly delicious strain, we can’t get enough of the berry and citrus flavors that accompany this happy high.

Sunset Sherbet

The potent hybrid Sunset Sherbet is a powerful, full-body strain that will take you to new heights with its cerebral stimulation. We’ve been filling our bongs with a hefty dose to melt away stress and bask in a richly euphoric high.

Also featured in:

Dark Side of the Moon

Inspired by the famous Pink Floyd album, Dark Side of The Moon is a sweet indica that we like to reserve for right before bedtime. For the perfect nightcap after a stressful day, we recommend packing your favorite pipe and slipping into an elevated slumber.

The best cannabis strains for sleep and insomnia

Space Queen

With sweet dessert aromas including notes of vanilla, cherry, and apple, the hybrid Space Queen helped us stay upbeat in 2017. Perfect for daytime use, Space Queen’s sativa qualities deliver a buzzy kick that will keep you going (despite its indica Romulan roots).

Also featured in:

White Tahoe Cookies

The strong indica that is White Tahoe Cookies was practically made for lazy days. With sedative effects that build with each hit, you’ll want to park somewhere comfortable and clear your schedule for a cozy day in (we’ve found White Tahoe Cookies to be very hyggelig).

Harlequin

The CBD-rich sativa Harlequin delivers a stress-melting 5:2 CBD:THC ratio that expertly crushes anxiety and pain without the intoxicating effects. A Columbia Gold and Swiss landrace descendant, Harlequin is a preferred strain for those among us who are medical patients as well as the many of us who simply love CBD.

Dancehall

Suitable for social gatherings and celebratory occasions, the hybrid Dancehall is an aptly named energy-boosting strain. We’ve been loading up our vaporizers before concerts, parties, festivals, and all manner of exciting events.

Also featured in:

Purple Trainwreck

Born from the powerhouse combination of Trainwreck and Mendocino Purps, hybrid Purple Trainwreck is the go-to strain for laughing fits and cerebral stimulation. We’ve been keeping it on hand for its tasty notes of pine, lavender, and citrus.

    Oh my goodness….I wish that I lived in America. In Australia we only have two strains. You can sometimes buy beautiful fresh dope or you might be offered “unfresh” dope. Either way I want legalisation in Australia.

    I thought these strains were from 2017,Dancehall, Harlequin, purple trainwreck,space queen have been around a while. Dancehall and Harlequin are pretty famous and have been around for years.

    I know people should not advertise but I go to a very trustworthy company called ANNCANNMED to buy my Cannabis Meds. Thanks to them I can treat my disease without taking basically speed. My life, appetite, and overall happiness has improved a lot : )

      Very good company by the way. Their CBD Rich oil has literally changed my life. I was able to abandon some strong opiates, and my health is doing just fine. Highly recommend…
