7 Cannabis Strains To Match The 7 Deadly Sins

3 min

For each of the 7 deadly sins, we will suggest a strain to match it somehow. These sins have a bad reputation, but when translated to a cannabis theme, they can actually be a good thing!

Ah, a classic thriller if we have ever seen one! The movie "Se7en" stars a young Brad Pitt and the ever-comforting Morgan Freeman in a gut-wrenching film for the generations. If you haven't seen it, please stream it (legally of course) as soon as you can. To give you a quick summary, the film follows the manhunt led by detectives Mills and Somerset, who are scouring the big city streets in hopes of catching a rampant serial killer. The killer has a specific method of operation: he stages each of his crime scenes to represent one of the seven deadly sins, with the victim being a perpetrator of said sin. Sounds freaky? Yes, but just wait till you get to the film's final minutes.

And why is it always 7? Seven deadly sins, the Seven Wonders of the World, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, the mystical number 7…It is a symbol of both good and bad luck around the world. If we are talking about numerical mystical symbolism, then there's the issue of karma. In karmic numerology, seven teaches you to develop spiritually, seeking the truth without being swayed by judgments made by others. If you accept 7 as a whole figure, it can have a magical and spiritual presence. If, on the other hand, you decide to mess with 7 in the wrong way, it can be life threatening! That seems to tie in nicely with the aforementioned cinematic storyline.

But we digress! As previously established, there are 7 deadly sins: Lust, Greed, Sloth, Gluttony, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Each sin is the inspiration for another gruesome tableau by Se7en's serial killer. But we can't help but wonder...What if the movie Se7en was not about a serial killer, but about a weed dealer? Instead of breaking and entering to slash the "sinner of the day," he sneaks in at night and leaves his victims a brown cardboard box of deadly-sin-inspired cannabis seeds? Hey, it could happen!

So, without further ado, let's discover which strains fit the deadly sins best and find out...WHAT'S IN THE BOX!?!?




The hairs on the back of your head stand on end as your eyes squint. The corners of your mouth contract cheekily upwards as you feel a warm sensation possess you. Like a warm energy flowing through you from the Crown chakra right down to the naughty Sacral region … that could be lust! Or, it could be Chocolate Haze by Royal Queen Seeds. Not only is chocolate a known aphrodisiac, but this sativa-dominant strain is quite uplifting and creative. It is very potent, so a sense of intense euphoria is to be expected.



If you are in it for the money, then this strain is for you. For “out of this world” yields, Money Maker by Strain Hunters has got your back. With yields upwards of 1kg/m², this indica-dominant has the best Kush lines bred into it. With flowering times of just eight weeks, this strain will surely make you greedy for its consistently fast turnaround times.



Some people have it all figured out. Sometimes, the most productive thing you can do is to do nothing at all. Just talk to anyone in a creative field and they will surely illustrate to you the importance of mastering procrastination. It is the seed of inspiration. And what better strain for this than THC Bunker Buster by Zamnesia Seeds? This weed is the couchlocker’s best bet. A super indica with super-indica powers. This Afghan, Skunk and Northern Lights cross is sure to leave you high and dry.



Most cannabis cultivars stoke the flames of appetite, but Wedding Cake by Zamnesia Seeds does so in a way that encourages all-out gluttony. This indica-dominant variety serves up a phytochemical cocktail that gets the stomach rumbling. Her outrageous THC level of 25% lights up cannabinoid receptors in the brain, impacting neural pathways involved in hunger, and her complex terpene profile hits the taste buds with flavours of sweetness and blueberries that only stimulate the appetite further. Make sure you stock your fridge before hitting a bowl or blunt loaded with these flowers. No sweet snacks are safe!



Wrath gets a bad rep. It can be a good thing. If you learn to harness this energy and direct it into something productive, the world is your oyster. For an instant dose of a high-energy stimulus, there’s nothing like Green Crack by Fastbuds. This strain is an excellent example of how a dominant indica does not necessarily signify a couchlocking, sedative effect. In fact, this strain gets its name exactly from the high energy levels and uplifting qualities it is known for. Some people even compare it to a very strong energy drink.



Envy is not a very nice feeling and only consumes valuable energy. So why not turn this one around and make everyone else envious of you? How? Simple, just drop some Green Poison seeds by Sweet Seeds and grin. It will make everyone you know green with envy. Not only is this strain a beauty to grow, it is also a fast-flowering, high-yielding variety that is incredibly simple to cultivate, even in the harshest climates. Come harvest, everyone will be drooling over a taste of its intense, sweet, and fruity bud.



Some people contest that pride should not be a sin. Why not be allowed to rejoice at a personal conquest? Is that not the whole point of seeking success? To have an underlying urge to conquer your dreams? What to do with all that energy after you win your battles? Why should we not be allowed to jump and praise for outdoing ourselves? Take for instance growing Malawi by Ace Seeds, possibly one of the hardest strains ever to grow. This pure landrace sativa is extraordinarily potent too. Only for the bravest of growers and the bravest of smokers. If you are able to manage it, you certainly deserve a pat on the back.
