Top 10 cannabis strains
- Jack Herer
Jack Herer is one of the most popular cannabis strains in the world as it provides a long-lasting, blissful high. It’s a good strain for starting the day with mental clarity and increased focus. Also a suitable choice for social occasions and creative tasks. It’s nicely balanced with a Sativa/Indica ratio of 55:45.
- White Widow
The famous White Widow received its name for being abundantly sprinkled with crystals. This Sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40) mainly acts on the mind. White Widow stimulates the formation of new ideas and elevates mood, energy and focus. In higher dosages the effects become more psychedelic with a relaxing undertone.
Skunk is a somewhat confusing name, as it has been used to refer to all high-THC varieties, or even to the intense smell of cannabis in general. However, Skunk is an independent, Indica-dominant strain (35:65) with a somewhat ‘stinky’ aroma and earthy taste. It provides an activating, creative head high and deep body relaxation.
- Northern Lights
Northern Lights is a pure Indica (around 95%) with relatively high THC levels. It’s used both recreationally and medically. Northern Lights produces a dreamy, euphoric calmness in the mind and comfortable, mild and pain alleviating buzz in the body. It is one of the most potent strains available.
- Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze is a hybrid derived from Skunk, Northern Lights and the basic Haze. It gained popularity in the 90s and has won many Cannabis Cup awards. This strain is sativa-dominant with a ratio of 80:20. Super Silver Haze is known for its long-lasting effects and its spicy, fruity flavour. This strain intensifies sense perception, is thought provoking, and comes with a deep body relaxation.
Amnesia is a typical sativa-dominant cannabis strain with a ratio of 70:30, and THC-levels up to 20%. The name refers to the short-term memory loss that some users experience. Mental focus is replaced by a brightened mood and a mild body buzz. In high doses it may trigger paranoia and dizziness.
Cheese is known for its sharply sour, cheesy smell. It’s half sativa, half Indica. Cheese is a favourite strain of many users as it produces a gentle, blissful state of mind. It calms you down and alleviates pain. It’s very powerful and may be too intense for beginners.
- Enemy of the State
Enemy of the State is a potent Indica-dominant strain (80:20), that is the mother of many other successful strains. It reduces pain and provides a happy and calm state of mind.
- Moby Dick
Moby Dick is a highly psychoactive hybrid, created by crossing White Widow and Haze. It was developed as a medical strain, however CBD levels are very low. Moby Dick is sativa-dominant strain (75:25), which means the effects are strongly euphoric and mainly cerebral. It induces both creativity and laziness.
- Critical Mass
Critical Mass is known to provide so much yield that the branches break down under its weight. It’s an Indica-dominant hybrid (20:80) and as such very narcotic. Critical Mass is used to treat chronic pain, anxiety and panic disorders.
