Pine Tar Kush stems from a family of pure indica genetics native to Pakistan. This cannabis strain is nearly unaltered from its original genetic form and expresses itself with bright green hues and a skunky aroma. The rich Kush
flavor of pine mixes with sweet undertones that give way to Pine Tar Kush’s calming yet talkative buzz.
Jesus, not to be confused with Jesus OG
, is a Seattle staple grown by Solstice. This hybrid is a cross between White Widow
and Blue Dynamite
, a combination that gives rise to pungent, resin-loaded buds that smell of sweet lemon and herbs. Its cerebrally-focused effects give way to happy moods and outbursts of giggles, with soothing full-body relaxation trailing close behind.
Astroboy is an energetic, sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that combines Apollo 13
genetics with a cross of Ortega
and Cinderella 99
bred by TGA Subcool Seeds. A mix of sweet and sour fruit flavors, like citrus and cherry, lead the way towards a heady buzz that is fast-acting and uplifting. The cerebral energy sparked by Astroboy is a great choice to keep you happy and active throughout a busy day. The watermelon phenotype
of Astroboy is known to be an exceptional expression of the strain and is often desired as an influence for other breeding projects.
Sweet Deep Grapefruit is an indica-dominant cross of Grapefruit
genetics, bred by Dinafem Seeds. The intense, relaxing effects of the Sweet Deep Grapefruit cannabis strain are led by a unique fruity flavor and carry a captivating, sweet aroma that lures the senses.
5. One to One
Named for its equal balance of THC and CBD
, One to One by CBD Seeds is a stabilized hybrid bred from Amnesia Haze
and a high-CBD landrace strain
. Its nuanced citrus notes come out strong from the first opening of the jar until the final exhale. With effects that embrace both the mind and body, One to One delivers blissful relaxation that encourages a positive mood. One to One finishes its flowering cycle after 8 to 9 weeks, or in September for outdoor gardens.
Throwback Kush is an indica-dominant cannabis strain bred by Exotic Genetix. It is a combination of an old-school OG Kush
mother from the 1990s and a Green Ribbon
BX (backcross) father. The resulting hybrid creates a mix of citrus flavors with a sharp, pungent note that is reminiscent of Pinesol and gives way to relaxing indica effects that are balanced by a dash of uplifting sativa energy.
7. Double Dutch
Double Dutch is a classic hybrid strain bred by Magus Genetics who crossed a pre-2000 Chronic
female with a Warlock
father. This 60/40 indica-dominant split has a strong Dutch heritage with emphasized indica traits. In its vegetative cycle, Double Dutch erupts into a bushy plant with thick leaves and strong stems, while its flowering stage gives rise to sativa-like popcorn buds after 8 to 9 weeks. With an aroma that brings to mind fresh fruit and fields of wildflowers, Double Dutch is cherished for its powerfully relaxing effects that flood both body and mind without causing too much drowsiness.
