THCV Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 18 September 2021 in Thc

Maybe you’ve heard of a nifty lil’ cannabinoid called THCV.  Perhaps it was from your cool smoker buddy who always is up on the newest type of dab, extract, edible, and exotic flower there is to offer.  Maybe it was from your crazy uncle Eddie at the family reunion while he was smoking a doobie of high THCV flower at the same time shouting at his overgrown rottweiler to get off the table and eating the snack platter that Gamgams put out for everyone to munch on.  Or, perhaps you’ve never heard of it at all and have no idea what you’re reading about and this article is going to go into. 

If so, then check out our helpful and informative blog about THCV Edibles.

What is THCV?

THCV is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. THCV is a cannabinoid.  THC and CBD are also cannabinoids.  While it is similar in chemical structure to THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the effects it can have on the body are much different.  THCV has a less psychoactive release in the brain than THC.  People who use THCV report having more energy, less appetite, and feeling less lethargic than consuming something with higher THC.  This is because the way our bodies are able to process cannabinoids is through our own Endocannabinoid system or (ECS). 

THCV, THC, and CBD all innervate with receptors in the ECS differently which produces the different reactions we have to consume them.  The ECS helps to regulate our physical and mental well-being, appetites, sleep schedules, and even hormones can be affected.

This article is going to walk through some of the top strains that have higher than average levels compared to other strains.  

Where Is THCV Found?

The origins of high THCV strains can be traced back to some OG landrace strains in Africa and surrounding areas. 

These strains are Sativa dominant and usually average at around 15%-23% THC as well. 

Sativas are known for giving more of a creative head high rather than a lethargic couch-lock that people associate with Indicas. 

People began to notice the differences between smoking different strains and started to seek out sources of the different types of highs.  Sativas became known as "the daytime smoke" because as many people say, it gives them energy, makes them feel more creative, and can do the opposite of munchies and help to curb an appetite.

Popular THCV Strains

Durban Poison

This is probably the most well-known strain on the list, or at least it was to us.  This strain is super Sativa dominant.  It is popular for a nice afternoon bong snap.  It gives off creativity and energy as for its main side effects.  It puts out a sweet and earthy aroma when smoked. Artists favor this strain for its highly Sativa effects.  It is usually round and chunky in bud structure and covered in trichomes giving it that frosty sugar-coated look.  This strain is one of our favorites down here at Cannasaver.

Pineapple Purps

Pineapple Purps is a strain that has grown in popularity over recent years. This strain has an average of 3:1 THC to THCV giving it highly psychoactive properties.  It has a sweet aroma that smells fruity and gives off a pineapple essence.  When smoked it tastes like sweet berry wine. It gives uplifting energetic effects when smoked and leaves you feeling with a head in the clouds high with bursts of energy.  This high THCV strain is used medically to treat anxiety, appetite loss, and mild cases of depression.  It possesses dark green leaves, slightly purple hairs, and is frosty with trichomes giving it a beautiful look and an even better smoke.

Power Plant

Power Plant is another African Sativa strain on our list.  This popular strain is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica with a split of around 65% Sativa and 35% Indica.   It has a higher than average amount of CBD making it a perfect blend of all different types of effects.  It will give you energy and also relax you.  Power Plant has light green leaves and a nice rich dusting of trichomes on the outer leaves.  This gives it a sweet and earthy aroma that tastes a bit like limes.  It’s known to give a clear-headed high with lots of energy.  

Red Congolese

With more people smoking cannabis now that it is recreationally legal in many states and medically legal in most of the states in the country, nonpsychoactive strains are at the top of people’s to-try lists.  This stain is no exception to that.  Red Congolese is a strain that gained popularity in California.  When grown it has an Indica like bushy structure but possesses the uplifting creative effects of a chronic Sativa.  It also has uplifting and creative effects when smoked or consumed.  It promotes mental clarity and has been used to help treat Alzheimer’s with promising results shown in this study.  This is a popular afternoon or wake-and-bake smoke for many people that struggle with nausea or tension.  

Doug’s Varin

This unique strain is known to suppress appetite due to its high levels of THCV.  It has been selectively bred over generations to gain the highly Sativa effects it gives.  It averages around 19% THC when tested.  It is a pure Sativa and boy does it smoke like one. Doug’s Varin gives off a piney, earthy smell.  It tastes like sweet citrus when smoked.  It usually flowers in 8-9 weeks making it a great choice for both indoor and outdoor growers. Along with appetite suppression, Doug’s Varin also is used to treat depression, muscle spasms, and stress. 

Thanks for checking out our blog on THCV weed strains. 

We hope you’ll go check out some of these strains at your local favorite dispensary soon!

Stoner Valentine's Day Gifts

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 25 January 2021 in Canna Blog

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and everyone is wondering what exactly they should get their partner to make it extra special. And yes, that includes all the stoners out there. And if you’re feeling like just buying your partner’s favorite strain might not be enough this year, then here are some products to liven it up a little – the icing on the cake, as they say. These are some of our favorite stoner Valentine’s Day gifts.

Best Stoner Valentine’s Day Gifts

We get it, it’s hard to think about what your significant other may appreciate this time of year, especially if you’re too stoned. We got you! Light up that joint and read on for some good inspiration!

Cannabis Chocolates

What more could anyone ask for? Chocolate is a Valentine’s Day staple and adding a little bit of weed into the cocoa mix gives the gift that “little extra” that regular chocolate just can’t deliver. You can find some coupons on chocolates here.

Flowers

“Flowers don’t tell, they show.” – Stephanie Skeem

Generally speaking, roses are a go-to for Valentine’s Day. That being said, there are definitely better types of flower out there. Can’t really smoke roses, can you? However we have heard of rolling blunts with rose petals, so you could try that! Class it up by turning your flowers into a weed bouquet. 

Couples’ Massage

There are very few people that don’t enjoy a nice, relaxing massage. Double the relaxation by maybe enjoying the chocolates you got your partner before going in. It’s worth it. 

Cannabis Lotion

Okay, so maybe you don’t want someone else rubbing up on your sweetheart. Fair enough. But keeping them from getting a massage seems cruel, so try giving them one yourself. Coupling a massage with a cannabis skin lotion can really elevate it to the next level.

Edibles

Food! Everyone loves food. If you’re smart, you’ll be making your significant other a romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day. Liven it up with some edibles in the mix. Get baking and get baked.

Cannabis Candles

What better way to set the mood than with some romantic, cannabis-infused candles? It is Valentine’s day after all. Turn up the charm with candles that have a little extra kick.

New Glass

Back in the day, “fine China” used to be a great way to show your sweetie some love. Certainly, we’ve evolved a bit. In this case, don’t think of flatware as plates and bowls; at least not the bowls you eat out of. Grabbing a new glass pipe to smoke out of together is a better way of keeping up with the times.

Pre-rolled Love

Some people like to roll their own joints. A lot of people don’t. If your partner prefers to smoke without the work, a pack of pre-rolls is a perfect way to show you care. 

Cannabis Seeds

“Love grows by giving.” – Elbert Hubbard 

Growth is an important facet of any relationship. Why not symbolize that with a couple of seeds of your own, that grow in tandem with your relationship? Easier than raising other things.

Homemade Crafts

It’s hard to beat an old-fashioned joint. Be that as it may, Valentine’s Day is a special occasion. Trying your hand at rolling unique joints, like the tulip joint, is a great way to show your partner that they were on your mind. 

Weekend Getaway

Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, perfect for a nice 420-friendly getaway with your stoner beau. The COVID-19 pandemic has made travel harder this year, but a nice alternative to a hotel is finding somewhere warm, packing a tent, some food, and a bowl, and camping the weekend away.

Vaporizers

No one likes to admit it, but packing a bowl or rolling a joint can sometimes be a chore, especially when you just want a quick toke. Good thing vaporizers exist. Perfect for an easy smoke, they can fit in your pocket and work like a charm. 

Cannabis Lube

It’s pretty easy to explain this one. 

  • Weed? Check. 

  • Lube? Check.

I’m fairly sure everyone knows why this gift is sure to make your partner happy.

Soda Pop for Your Sweetheart

Is it soda or pop in Denver? Asking for a friend. Regardless of what it’s called, a nice way to switch it up is with some Keef Cola, a cannabis-infused soda (pop)? If Michael Bublé is singing about it, you know it’s a good Valentine’s Day gift. 

Weed Apparel

Yes, it can give a “Yeah I totally smoke weed” vibe sometimes, but there’s nothing wrong with showing a little love for your favorite honey by getting them something that shows a little love for their favorite flower. Things like pot leaf underwear can make for a funny, yet charming Valentine’s gift.

Marijuana Cookbooks

Weed and food go hand in hand. There are very few combinations that can stack up. Peanut butter and jelly? Close second. If your partner loves to cook and loves to smoke, a prime gift would be one that combines both. You can find marijuana cookbooks that can merge cooking and weed. Really, it’s a gift for both of you.

A Night In

No doubt that we’ve all been spending plenty of nights in, over the past year. With that in mind, it’s certainly possible to spice it up a bit. A romantic dinner, a romantic blunt, and a romantic movie can make for a fantastic quarantined Valentine’s Day. 

Stoner Flicks

Being high can make mostly anything fun. But one of the best activities is chilling out and watching classic stoner movies, like Half-Baked or Pineapple Express. A night in doesn’t have to be limited to rom-com. 

Grassy Gift Basket

Can’t decide on just one thing? Well luckily, you don’t have to. If you really want to step up your Valentine’s Day game, you can mix and match any of the above to really bring it home. Chocolates, lotion, and pre-rolls? You don’t have to be that charming, but it definitely isn’t going to hurt. 

All in all, you know best. It’s Valentine’s Day, and hopefully, you know what your stoner sweetie likes. Getting the right gift is a great way to show them that you really care. For specials on the above-mentioned products, you can check out websites like Cannasaver for deals that won’t break the bank. 

Happy Valentine’s Day, you crazy stoners!

Wax Strains

Wax Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 06 February 2021 in Canna Blog

For those about to dab, we salute you.

Concentrates are definitely fun for veteran smokers. Concentrates such as wax were made for a modern stoner wanting smoking potency and efficiency. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency, sometimes hitting higher numbers.
With an onset time of 1-3 minutes, the effects can last a few hours. Concentrates maintain the terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed, natural taste involved, and controlling your overall high. 

But which wax strains are best when considering concentrates to dab or produce from? We’re so very glad you asked.

How To Choose Wax Strains

Marijuana strains with a wide spectrum of compounds and good flavor/aroma are typically chosen for high-quality cannabis concentrate. Dispensary extraction specialists prefer to use strains producing a mass amount of trichomes (kief). But best strains are often subjective. So here’s a list of a mixture of Sativa, Indica, and hybrid concentrates that are guaranteed to be making you feel good.

Grape Ape

One of the rare purple strains, Grape Ape is an often sought-out Indica strain. Grape Ape is a much beloved and popular strain with some to do with its legendary Grand Daddy Purp and Afghani lineage. 

The strain in its wax form hits high potencies much like its flower form. The wax can reach between 70-80+% THC. Grape Ape is also a fast grower, only taking between 7-8 weeks to flower. This can lead to more wax being produced.
The grape Ape concentrate has a grape-like smell and flavor. The strain provides pain-relief and is a great sleepy time high.

Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express in its wax form will, simply put, make your day better. As Saul from the movie, Pineapple Express (2008) once said, “It’s hands down the dopest dope I’ve ever smoked.” 

The one and only satisfying Sativa is a cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The strain, in its concentrated form, astonished with thrilling smells; comparable to an apple or mango. How yummy does that sound? The taste is as close to pineapple, pine, and cedar as you can get.

Pineapple Express wax gifts you with a long-lasting, energetic high while heightening the senses to their absolute fullest. The concentrate provides productivity and creativity to flow and flow. “It’s almost a shame to smoke it. It’s like killing a unicorn, with like, a bomb”.

Wedding Cake

Don’t worry, we don’t have to sit at a wedding for this one. Wedding Cake is one of the newest crowd favorites on this wax list. The strain is a hybrid. It’s a cross between Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies. 

Wedding Cake concentrate is very potent, anywhere between 80-90%. With vanilla smells and berry taste, the strain provides long-lasting euphoria and happiness. It provides pain relief, reduces insomnia, and helps with appetite. 

Green Crack

Though sometimes an off-putting name, Green Crack is a Sativa fan’s best friend. Not letting the name fool you, this Sativa is 100% energizing marijuana and delectable flavor, especially in wax form. The strain has a fast 7-8 week flowering time which is always nice with production. Outdoor grows can reach up to 20 ounces per plant.

Green Crack wax is the definition of pure energy. Green Crack wax has a super surge of cerebral ripples and sharpened focus. The concentrate has mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors and smells potent enough to blast you into space. 

Green Crack wax is a great daytime concentrate which aids in the fight against fatigue and stress. We think we could all use a little of that these days.

Harlequin

For those with a need for a CBD-rich strain, Harlequin is the gal for you. This strain is a high yield producer. With a 2:1 THC: CBD ratio, Harlequin provides a flavorful and balanced wax.

Harlequin is low on THC potency but very high in CBD. With some THC present, you can still get a little THC high but it's more there to interact with the CBD (entourage effect). 

Harlequin concentrate has aromas of cherry, pepper, with a slight earthiness. Medicinal users often use it for pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms.

Chemdawg

Ah, Chemdawg. This beautiful strain is a classic. It’s continually crossed to create some of the best strains around today. With a good yield, Chemdawg was basically made for concentrate production.

Enhanced Diesel scents spread throughout the room when the strain became an extract. It has an orange and earthy taste to it. Chemdawg also drips in the terpene caryophyllene which gives the concentrate some spice. 

The terpene also provides the benefits of being an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anxiety/depression reducer.

Chemdawg is a well-known, euphoric strain; only enhanced through concentrate.

Sour Diesel

Incredibly popular, Sour Diesel is a 90% Sativa dominant strain with effects that are only enhanced through the concentrate process. Sour Diesel is a cross of Chemdawg and Super Skunk, making for one heck of a great smell. Sour Diesel flower can be produced as quickly as 11 weeks. 

Sour Diesel concentrates are typically full of citrus flavor and gassy smells. Really gassy! 

This fast-acting Sativa is great for an all-day bake of creativity and energy. Sour diesel is a long-lasting concentrate that will leave you happy, stress-free, and relieving any pain you may have.

OG Kush

Now if we may, I’d like to introduce a strain that needs no introduction really, the legendary OG Kush. OG Kush is a 75% Indica, 25% Sativa hybrid strain. With medium to large dense buds, OG Kush is perfect for making concentrates.

The concentrate packs high potency without ever feeling overly intense. OG Kush has very earthy smells with rich citrus, pine, and faint fruit flavors. 

OG Kush is great for the end of the day. Perfect for relaxing your body, surrounding you in calm, and leaves a smile on your face.

Strawberry Banana

For me, taste and flavor are the number one factors I’ll choose a certain kind of wax/concentrate. That said, for those who value flavor in dabbing we bring to you, Strawberry Banana. This Indica heavy concentrate is rich in trichome/resin production. Also being a cross between Bubblegum and Banana Kush, this strain is the perfect candidate for a premiere cannabis concentrate.

Strawberry Banana has vibrant aromas of strawberry, banana, and other tropical fruits. The flavor follows suit, often being compared to the taste of a fruit smoothie. Yum!

Strawberry Banana provides a dreamlike head high, inducing creativity and sensory awareness. Sometimes even providing a slightly psychedelic experience. A lovely concentrate indeed.

Sweet Sweet

Speaking of such sweetness, we now bring to you a great strain of that “good good,” Sweet Sweet. This strain mirrors Strawberry Banana but for the Sativa lovers out there. The strain is high-yielding while producing beautiful trichomes. Perfect concentrate fit!

Sweet Sweet has a bubble gum aroma with tropical fruit flavors. It provides an energized and euphoric high that lasts for a long time.

Concentrates of Sweet Sweet can help combat headaches/migraines and drastically reduce stress.
So now we hope we’ve helped you select the best concentrate strains for you. 

Check out Cannasaver for the best concentrate deals out there. Select wisely and based on what kind of high will suit you best.

Strawberry Banana

Summertime can get pretty hot but like the most refreshing smoothie on a sunny day, Strawberry Banana rolls in to ease your mind and body. 

Strawberry Banana is an indica dominant strain crossed between Banana OG and Bubblegum. The strain shines with smells of banana/strawberry with other fruit smells sprinkled in. But the flavor, oh the flavor! It can only be described as a fresh fruit smoothie.
Strawberry Banana provides a mellow and accommodating kind of high. The kind to which allows your headspace to wander/unwind while retaining a sharp focus. This is the kind of strain to get to go hiking and allow yourself to get lost in the woods (though don’t actually get lost).

Sunset Sherbet

Super Lemon Haze

As familiar on a summer’s day as a glass of lemonade, this picture-perfect sativa brightens up any summer activity you are about to enjoy. 

Super Lemon Haze is an award-winning sativa-dominant hybrid and is the glorious combination of Skunk and Super Silver Haze

The strain’s smells are bright and shiny, with distinct smells of lemons/citrus. These buds can fill a room with their smells. The flavor follows through with the lemon taste; a lot like eating a lemon-flavored candy.

Super Lemon Haze is superb for daytime usage. Social and lively, this sativa is wonderful for having some daytime fun! Super Lemon Haze has the kind of high that feels like a warm boost of excitement and focus. Perfect for those adventurers out there trying to combat sleepiness or stress.

Zkittlez 

Zkittlez aka Skittles (easier to say right?) is what you get when you cross Grape Ape with another on the list, Grapefruit. With such a sweet lineage, it's no wonder Zkittlez is typically described as being candy-like. It will, in fact, allow you to “taste the rainbow”.

The Effects of Different Marijuana Strains | Enhance - Debilitate - Normalize,

When I first started budtending, I was very much of the "if it messes you up it's what you want" persuasion. I still very much dwell in that area but as I have had the opportunity to try a ludicrous amount of different strains and crosses, I can much more accurately get to the effect I'm looking for in most cases. Some strains I know for sure will effect me in a specific way, whereas some strains still baffle me and I need to do more pretend research on, all strains just making me wish I could test individual cannabinoids by themselves, But after all of this, I needed a way to explain the generalized effect of strains beyond the Indica Sativa Hybrid model, as there are plenty of cases where just those labels alone were either not accurate enough or in some cases even opposite. We recently got a Sativa strain that is under no circumstances effectually useful as a Sativa, and I would never sell it as such. A lot of categorization happens based on the physical makeup of the plants that are grown, as you can't necessarily know what a plant is really going to result in outside of how it has ended up in previous batches.
 

Indica vs. Sativa

The use of Indica Sativa and Hybrid in a consumer context is also essentially a curse. I cannot even begin to count the number of people that have come in not even ever having smoked weed adamantly telling me that they don't want Indicas, they hate them and they only want Sativas because someone told them all Indica strains would put them to sleep. This is understandable as these past two years have really opened up a lot as far as open experimentation and research, which can only continue to climb. But even so, the average customer is probably still going to tell you that they don't want Indicas, or that Sativas make them too paranoid or sometimes even that Sativas put them to sleep and they can ONLY smoke hybrids, which is generally all nonsense.

Even just going by my dispensary alone, we have always had Indica strains that are very energetic in addition to the more downer strains, and plenty of Sativas that I would never recommend for people to go out and do stuff on, more prone to relaxation and calmness. I have had a hard time really trying to narrow down how to describe the effects of different strains in a way that I can keep them all straight in my head and avoid being constantly thrown off by new weird crosses. So after much deliberation, I came up with the following three categories: enhance, debilitate, and normalize.
 

Three Ways to Categorize The Effects of Smoking Marijuana

Enhance strains are generally more applicable to Sativas and Sativa leaning hybrids, but are not limited to that by any means. Any strain that modifies your mental or physical feelings in a way that pushes you forward or helps you focus or even body high that reduces muscle pain could fall under this category, Enhance strains can come in many different ranges of strength as well, some lower THC strains being very beneficial for cerebral effect. These strains are generally more recommended for going out and doing things, mental expansion and creativity channeling, among other positive effects. The body high side of enhance strains I have also found to be a little more like lifting body high, losing a few pounds of weight in your extremities, good for all kinds of outdoor kinds of adventures. Enhance strains can also carry with them a heavy drop effect once they have worn off, as enhancement can't be permanent and you must eventually go back to normal you.

Debilitate strains come in two main types for me, strains that are very heavy on the body high and knockdown potential, and strains that make you stupid. I am a huge fan of strains that make you stupid, me stupid, what have you. I avoid a lot of enhance strains as I feel like there is rarely as much change in my headspace, sometimes getting a little more tangential than usual but that is rarely something I'm looking for, as anything more going on in my head just pushes me more towards just getting too distracted to function, whereas strains that knock me down mentally make me more able to enjoy the present rather than spiraling through my thoughts. Intense heavy body high as opposed to the enhance strains lifting body is also a preference for me, again because I want to be knocked down. While these strains can be often attributed to Indicas, the dumbing strains I have found are generally closer to hybrids, usually resulting from an interesting strain cross.

Normalize strains are interesting because they vary from person to person, as you may find that an Enhance or a Debilitate strain may actually knock you down or pick you up to normal. Most CBD strains that I have tried fall into this category, as they are generally just relaxing and relief heavy, without actually being too down. Some people associate CBDs with going to sleep or tiredness, but I don't really agree in any context. Normalize strains are more along the lines of getting you to a nice average space that you want to inhabit, rather than pushing you too much in any direction, similar to how people will take antidepressants or Adderall, things like that.

But these three categories are fairly fluid, really only getting assigned to strains that I think fully embody these ideas. Still if you go into a store and ask for something that fits one of these contexts, I guarantee you will have a much more productive conversation with your budtender. They may even be able to find you something much closer to what you need rather than just assigning you the Indica or Sativa of the day because you told them you couldn't smoke one or the other. I recommend you always take your drug research seriously, and try to move away from the traditional genetic classifications of weed. The sooner we start to move away from these ideas the sooner we can really advance into growing strains that do the same thing every time.

Save your stickers, keep a journal, whatever works for you, I encourage you to do it. Learning is the best aspect of this industry right now, as much as everyone else would have you believe it is money.

Money is not what we're working for.

When consuming the many different forms of marijuana on the market today, consumers tend to find favorite strains along the way. Whether the outcome is productivity, melting into the couch, pain relief, or creativity, we know what we like and want in marijuana’s effects.

Top Strains in Colorado

Without further ado, here are our top strains that you can find here in Colorado.

​​99 Problems

“If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems”

Gotta stop you right there, Mr. Z, is it? Or can I just call you Jay? We’ve already got it!

99 Problems is a sativa-dominant strain being the result of breeding Stardawg and White 99. The strain tends to bathe those who live wildly in the strong aroma of sweet fruit/berries. 99 Problems blasts through your senses with positivity, energy, and a grand boost of focus.  This potent strain often hits between 28-30% THC. 

Let it be known, 99 Problems is not for beginners.  

Afghan Kush

The awesome strain needs no introduction!

Afghan Kush is known for being a pure indica strain that can be traced for centuries. The strain is known for having body heavy effects which allow the consumer peace of mind and possibly a visit from the sleep fairy.

Afghan Kush manages sleeplessness in canna-newbies who might be more prone to paranoia when trying to unwind. This comes from the high yield of CBD in the strain.

With a homely earthy aroma and taste notes of old-school hash, Afghan Kush shows proud lineage through dense buds and many shiny trichomes.

Blue Walker

Blue Walker is the beautiful hybrid of the strains Blue Dream and Skywalker OG. This force-yielding strain is almost a pure sativa at 90%. THC percentages tend to stick to 26-30%.

Blue Walker will grant you a long-lasting buzz of euphoria. The strain is known to help with anxiety, pain, depression, nausea, and stress

Bruce Banner #3

AKA The Incredible Hulk is the strain many consumers seek after. The strain has effects of euphoria and happiness, that come quite quickly.  With THC levels between 23-26%, it is easy to see why Mr. Banner is gaining popularity.

Bruce Banner #3 is a sativa dominant hybrid being a cross of  Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush. BB #3 is known for being incredibly relaxing. The sativa head high achieves euphoric greatness, with allowance for creativity and boosting mood. The strain is nice and sweet, with flavors of citrus. 

Chocolate OG

Chocolate OG is an indica dominant strain and is well known for its highly relaxing chemical structure. Chocolate OG is the immaculate cross with Chocolate Rain (Also sounds awesome) and True OG. THC percentages in this strain come close to 30%. 

Chocolate OG delivers flavors with cheesiness and hazelnut but lingers with cocoa aromas. The buds in this strain are nicely capped with icey trichomes. The chocolatey goodness allows you to fall into a euphoric/giggly sensation. 

Chocolate OG effects help to reduce pains, aid in combating insomnia, and other health-filled benefits. Come try this, the Willy Wonka in you is screaming.

Green Crack

Let it be known, you will not become a Dave Chappel skit. Green Crack is only pure energizing sativa. No trace of crack here, whew…

Green Crack is the definition of pure energy, focus, and fun-having good times. Green Crack has incredible cerebral effects and maintains its awe through mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors. Green Crack is a great daytime strain helping fight fatigue and stress. Green Crack is extremely appealing to those needing to get stuff done and have fun doing it.

Grease Monkey

This is an Indica-dominant weed strain resulting from a cross between Gorilla Glue and Cookies and Cream marijuana strains. It is the highest THC percentage flower on our list, with a whopping value of 31%. This value can significantly vary depending on the growth conditions, as already stated.

Grease Monkey has a strong aroma of nutty vanilla and skunky diesel. When smoke, the high effect builds behind the eyes and then spreads to the rest of the body. It drives you to a euphoric high characterized by mental calming effects. Medicinally, this strain is a remedy for chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite, etc.

Hell's OG

Hell’s OG buckles down with a heavy, indica dominant breed of the strains Blackberry and OG Kush. Hell’s OG sounds scary at first, but ends up being a citrus flavored, candy-coated treat.

Hell’s OG is known for its psychoactive effects. The strain is well-known to destress consumers from mind and body, allowing for some timeless bliss. Hell's OG has been used to treat PTSD and insomnia. First-timers beware. This stuff is awesomely potent.

Ice Cream Cake

This is a tasty treat I was able to try recently. Almost as relaxing as ice cream on a hot day.

Ice Cream Cake produces large, dense nuggets of golden green. Ice Cream Cake is the cross of Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. The strain mirrors flavors of vanilla for pure delight. The aroma is a classic skunky one. You can expect your sesh to encounter body relaxation and ease you into dreamland. 

Jungle Cake

Ohh! More cake! Just remember, in terms of marijuana, anytime you see cake...get it!

Jungle Cake is the cross of the strains Wifi and Wedding Cake. The strain struts in with light smells of sugar/frosting with pungent fuel.

Jungle is also another on the list to reach up to 30% THC potency. The strength ensures a lasting, powerful high.

Sour Diesel

And last, but most certainly not least. A legendary favorite. Sour Diesel, the popular sativa that just doesn’t slow down. Sour Diesel is a perfect addition to a day of adventure. Sour diesel is a long-lasting strain that will leave you stress-free and relieve any pains you may have.

Being a 90% sativa dominant strain, the high you will feel from Sour Diesel can help you access hallways of creativity. This strain is typically pretty high in THC being between 20-25%. Sour Diesel is rich with citrus flavor and robust gassy smells. The strain is known to help anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
