Even regular cannabis smokers get tired of the same strains. They may also suffer from dulled effects due to frequent use. Luckily, we have compiled the best and most flavourful strains to help you reach new heights.

You are no newbie. Maybe you've taught another generation how to roll joints, or just came to it several years ago. Perhaps you use cannabis regularly for a medical purpose. Regardless, you are now familiar with most strains and seek some variety to spice up your cannabis regimen.

The reality is that smoking frequently can dull the impact of cannabinoids on the human endocannabinoid system. Higher THC levels are one way of achieving effects that may be unattainable with less potent strains.

As luck would have it, there is an ever-expanding market catering to people just like you. We take a look at a few strains guaranteed to expand your horizons, if not your palate. Each variety culminates in a tasty smoke session guaranteed to impact even the most seasoned stoners.


Gorilla Glue Zamnesia Seeds

Like the chocolate chip cookie, Gorilla Glue is the result of a famous accident. This powerful indica was created by Joesy Whales and Lonie Watson. The fateful event occurred when Joesy’s Chem Sis plants turned hermaphrodite and pollinated his Sour Dubb crop. Disgusted, he tossed out the strain. Luckily for the present day pot smoker, Lonie experimented with the leftover seeds. Gorilla Glue was born!

GG has a whopping THC content between 24-26%. As a result, it is one of the most potent indicas around. With a name derived from its sticky, highly resinous buds, Gorilla Glue is a powerful pain-reliever that may glue you to the couch. Smoking this strain results in an intense body stone that can help temporarily relieve anxiety and insomnia in just a few puffs.

Even better, the plant will produce buds in 9-10 weeks with a decent yield. Gorilla Glue is more of a “quality over quantity” strain with an earthy, sweet taste, containing hints of lemon and pine. Seeking a flavourful smoke? Look no further.


Girl Scout Cookies FastBuds

GSC hails from sunny California. As one of the best-named strains around, Girl Scout Cookies is no joke. Frequently deemed one of the top Californian strains of all time, GSC holds its own against even the most picky potheads. Girl Scout Cookies is a 60% indica-dominant hybrid with a THC content of 22%.

This autoflowering variety also produces bud in just 8-9 weeks and yields between 500-650 grams per square meter of high-quality flower.

The effects of GSC result in highs that are drowsy and relaxing. Enhanced perception of music, humour and creativity are often reported by users. Its chocolatey-mint taste, combined with a hint of wood will make a lasting impression not unlike real girl scout cookies.


Tutankhamon Pyramid Seeds

Tutankhamon is a unique, feminized AK-47 strain with a respectable THC level of 22%. It is a small plant, requiring between 60-65 days to produce buds. The buds are also compact, but fat. Tutankhamon emits an intense Skunk smell alongside a fruity, flowery taste. Plants usually produce around 500 grams per square meter.

Even more intriguing are Tutankhamon’s sativa-dom effects. These include feelings of happiness, euphoria and increased energy. This strain is a perfect complement to creative endeavours or nighttime social outings.

That said, this bud isn’t for everyone. With potent effects, some smokers find it encourages paranoia and anxiety. Others report accompanying outcomes of dry mouth and eyes, as well as dizziness.


Tangerine Dream Barneys Farm

Tangerine Dream is a cross between G13 and Neville’s A5 Haze. The result is an ultra-potent strain with impressive yields. With a THC content of 25%, it incites a lasting, happy stone.

Rarely growing more than one metre in size and ready to harvest about 65 days into the bloom, TD’s aroma will surprise you. Intense citrus overtones linger around the huge, resin-covered flowers.

However, the real payoff comes with the first hit of the cured product. This feminized hybrid is the result of master breeding that is guaranteed to delight the connoisseur in you.


Y Griega

Originating between a cross of Amnesia and Kali Mist, Y Griega is a sativa-dominant hybrid with some of the highest THC on the market. Growers have reported concentrations up to 27%. When cultivating, plants should be carefully tended to as this strain can take off like a rocket. Despite retaining the effects of a sativa, Y Griega’s buds are extremely resinous.

This strain creates an energetic high that slowly dissolves into a mellow calm. These distinct hybrid qualities make it especially popular for medical use. Individuals cite its effectiveness in helping to treat a variety of conditions ranging from nausea and pain, to glaucoma and inflammation.
