strains of marijuana

The demand for marijuana has greatly increased since it was legalized in Canada. It’s important to determine which particular marijuana strain suits you best by using an online dispensary guide.  A lot of people have been reaping benefits from smoking marijuana.   If you want to know which strain you should get, then here are well-known marijuana strains you’ll want to consider:

OG Kush

The OG Kush was first grown in Florida, during the early nineties when Emerald Triangle from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam.  The result is a hybrid with a distinct terpene profile that boasts of a complex aroma with hints of skunk, spice, and fuel.  It was in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it from Florida to LA and handed it over to famed cultivator Josh D.  From then on, OG kush has become an international staple used to cultivate many popular strains like Headband and GSC. Smoking OG kush will result to a calm, sleepy, and happy feeling. It also helps treat depression, insomnia, pain, and stress.

Purple Kush

The Purple Kush is a 100% pure indica strain created as a potent hybrid of the widely popular Hindu Kush X Purple Afghani strains.  It has a THC level that ranges from 22% on average.  Purple Kush users describe its effect as an immediate uplifting euphoric high and leaves them completely pain free and somewhat introspective.  Purple Kush is ideal in treating conditions like chronic pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, and nerve damage.


This strain is named after a Star Trek character but it actually came from Mendocino County – part of California’s famous Emerald Triangle – way back in the 1970’s.  It didn’t became popular until the elusive breeder named Emerald Joe migrated to British Columbia, taking the prized cutting with him.  Romulan is prized for its powerfully calming high with the pine scented buds offering a unique peppery taste that is now highly celebrated in the cannabis world.

Love Potion # 1

The Love Potion # 1 is a sativa dominant hybrid (70% sativa/30% indica) strain created by crossing the very popular G-13 X Columbian Gold strains. It has a moderate THC level (15-18%) and earned its name from the stimulating and arousing effects.  Users experience an uplifting invigorating high; an intense uplifted mood, and a feeling of an exciting body high that spreads from the spine to the fingertips in stimulating waves. It is often used to treat chronic anxiety, chronic fatigue, nausea, and mild to moderate depression.

Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies is an OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid cross whose popularity reached beyond its California homebase.  It offers an earthy, sweet scent which gives its users a full body and mind relaxation experience. 

Marijuana has been proven time and again to have many wonderful therapeutic benefits. Do some research and ask for recommendations from experts.  Carefully choose the right marijuana strain which will give you the exact results you desire.
