While any weed roundup is highly subjective, We worked hard to bring you our picks for what is currently the very cream of the cannabis crop.We considered both golden oldies as well as cutting-edge ganja of today to bring you our up-to-the-minute take on what we believe to be the very best strains of bud available.
10. Northern Lights #5
This legendary strain is a must for any best-of list. While it may have a relatively low THC content, it is not only one of the most elegant and enjoyable indicas on the market, but it is a Cannabis Cup winner that now comprises the lineage of literally dozens of other top-notch strains.
It is a said that G13 is the product of a secret government project, but whatever its provenance may be this stunning strains deserves a spot on this list. With its great taste and relaxing, indica-forward high, G13 remains an underappreciated plant.
8. Blue Dream
A sativa-dominant hybrid with a serious cult following, Blue Dream is an incredibly well rounded strain. This combination of Blueberry and Haze takes the eight-spot for its medicinal qualities coupled with a strong but uplifting high.
Godfather strains like Northern Lights and the original Hash Plant are purported parents of this utterly incredible indicia, but while this cannot be proved, what is for certain is that Chemdog is an excellent strain. A parent of several of amazing varietals itself, Chemdog can easily leave you couch-bound.
6. Strawberry Cough
Just like Chemdog, there isn’t much known about the parentage of this top-notch hybrid. Famous for its incredible taste and energetic, uplifting high, this sativa-dominant strain is excellent for those who like to partake before enjoying an activity.
5. Durban Poison
While this is one of the very first sativa strains to ever grace pipes across the globe, Durban Poison seems more popular now than ever. The parent of too many varietals to name, Durban Poison, has such a clean, clear, and bright high that it is a must-smoke for any weed aficionado.
4. Jack Herer
Whole novels could be written about this iconic strain, lovingly named after a true marijuana pioneer. With weed megastars like Haze and Shiva Skunk among its parentage, this Sensi Seeds varietal maintains an impressive THC content while keeping all the tangy, piney, spicy undertones of its sativa lineage.
3. Wedding Cake
What happens when you combine two of the most beloved marijuana strains of all time? You get this nearly flawless indica-dominant hybrid. Wedding Cake is all the rage right now, and for good reason — it’s absolutely incredible. A combination of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies, this strain features a noticeably sweet, sugary flavor compounded by a euphoric high.
2. OG Kush
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call this one of the most popular strains in the history of the West Coast weed scene. A multiple Cannabis Cup winner, this unbelievably popular indica can have a somewhat sluggish high due to its mind-bending THC content, but there is little doubt that this skunky, funky, earthy, strain deserves its place among the best bud on the planet.
1. Super Lemon Haze
What more can we say about this bud that hasn’t been said before? This masterpiece of marijuana boasts a high that is energetic, fun, and amazingly cerebral while at the same time packing an almost Headband-like punch. Super Lemon Haze is known for its ability to cut through an entire day’s worth of smoking with its bright and cheery high, and with two Cannabis Cup wins in a row, there is little doubt that this stunning sativa deserves a place in the history books of bud.
