Once known as Blissful Wizzard (with two Zs), this potent strain now goes by just Blissful Wizard (with on Z). We’re very pleased with that choice of spelling, because anything that isn’t spelled like it sounds is just too much for us. Blissful Wizard tops out at a whopping 34% THC content, so be careful when introducing this strain into your regular rotation. Start small (with a one-hitter , for example) and see how it affects you.
When you’re familiar with the consequences of your actions, you can increase slowly from there. We only mention this because Blissful Wizard delivers a soaring euphoric high that can last for a couple of hours. You’ll maintain a decent state of mind throughout, but you don’t want to be making any major life choices while under Blissful Wizard’s sway. Also of note, Blissful Wizard will make you hella-hungry, so make sure you have plenty of snacks on hand to satisfy your munchies . We love the Fruity Pebbles strain for its tropical, berry flavors. Fruity Pebbles gets its kick from some well-known progenitors: Granddaddy Purple, Tahoe Alien, and Green Ribbon. The Fruity Pebbles strain is an excellent choice for beginners and experts alike.
It’s mild but powerful effects won’t set you to bouncing off the walls or hold you captive on your couch. But they will take you to places you’ve never been before. All in all, it’s a versatile bud with plenty of beneficial effects — both recreational and medicinal — and can be used for a variety of intents and purposes (not just for getting high ). Yoda OG’s 28% THC content makes it a particularly potent pot strain. Yoda OG affects both the body and the mind simultaneously, which makes for a full-on, head-to-toe high. Yoda OG’s high is primarily soothing and mellow as opposed to tripping and exciting. But, like the sneaky little Yoda dude from which this strain gets its name, the high can creep up on you slowly. It may take a while for the effects to kick in, but once they do, you’ll experience a synergistic body-and-mind euphoria that is without rival. We recommend popping in your favorite film before smoking. That way you can zone out and enjoy the ride while your high builds and builds. While not being close the strongest strain on this list, Cherry OG rings in at a still-impressive 22% THC. The effects of Cherry OG — euphoria and total body relaxation — are also pretty impressive, with some long-time cannaseurs describing their experience as locked onto your couch with a euphoric cerebral high that leaves you happy as a clam. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like just what the doctor ordered after a long, stressful day at work. Obviously, we’ve left some off this list because we just don’t have room to talk about all the great varieties out there. That said, you really can’t go wrong with any of the THC-rich marijuana strains on this list. Sure, you’re going to have your own personal preference, but that’s half the fun of the experience, isn’t it? When you boil it all down, rating marijuana strains is like critiquing fine art: You’re going to love some and hate some but finding your favorite will be an excellent adventure. One of the special joys of cannabis is discovering which specific strains your endocannabinoid system prefers. However, Leafly.com currently has 1,762 strains profiled in their database and it’s not uncommon to come across strains you won’t be able to find listed in their database. No one even knows how many strains actually exist because cannabis can be endlessly crossbred to create as many different strains of weed as there are stars in the sky. Some strains of weed like Thai Stick , much like certain stars, have already gone extinct while others have yet to exist. This is why selecting the 53 best weed strains is an undeniably fun task. The first strain of weed was sent to planet Earth from Sirius, according to the Mali people of West Africa who were chronicled by Herodotus around 300 BC. The word cannabis, or the “two-dog-plant” according to the Mali, is a combination of the words canna , or canine (dog), and bis or bi, signifying the number two because Sirius is the original homeworld of cannabis in the Mali tradition. Every strain of the mother plant has its own fascinating short story and history. Choosing which strains of weed to try from the limitless varieties without contemplating the kinds of pot that could potentially be growing on other planets is enough to make some green cannabis consumers anxious or excited.
It’s even quite common for really serious stoners to get a little depressed when they contemplate how no one will ever be able to smoke every single strain of wonderful weed in the universe. We cross-referenced data from Leafly , Weedmaps , Hightimes , Complex , and Weed Horn to bring you the ultimate list of our 53 favorite mouth-watering strains of marijuana. We hope that our guide will help make your quest to find your favorite strains of cannabis a little easier. We’re not ranking these according to any scale, so they’re in no particular order. Dutch Cheese is a little bit of a mystery in the cannabis community. Because only one of its parents are known (Euforia). Dutch Cheese is a cerebral high that will leave you feeling uplifted and euphoric. All of that wrapped in a sweet, fruit-flavored package that is sure to please. We love this strain because it smells like teen spirit. It’s even better than that — it smells like lime sherbet!
Chernobyl is a mix of Trainwreck, Trinity, and Jack The Ripper. Contrary to its “powerful” and “scary” name, Chernobyl is more about floating away on a happy, relaxed cloud than it is about watching the walls have a meltdown.
