With recreational marijuana sales hitting at least 25 dispensaries in Clark County on July 1, what better time to highlight some of our favorite—and tastiest—strain picks for the summer?
From hybrids to Indicas and Sativas, we’ve tried to pick an eclectic set of strains with the right cannabinoid and terpene balance for a perfect smoke sesh.
This Indica dominant hybrid was named for its ability to change the game when it comes to a patient’s mood and pain management. As a descendant of Purple Dragon and Green Thai, the flowers of this strain are a vibrant green and deep purple. When smoking this strain, you’ll notice an undeniable blend of fruit, grape, and citrus with the subtlest of floral undertones.
The unique—and delicious—flavor of this trichrome heavy strain comes from its complex terpene profile. The synergistic impact of Game Changer’s unique cannabinoid and terpene profiles means that it’s an ideal strain for those who are in need of marijuana for pain management, depression, stress, fatigue, and migraines. If you like the sweet and fruity flavors of this strain, you may want to try Gorilla Grape, too.
There are few snacks as delicious— or refreshing—as a thin mint cookie. If you’re a girl scout cookie lover—or just looking for a refreshing strain to try this summer, Thin Mint is the hybrid marijuana strain for you. A cross between Durban Poison and OG Kush, this strain is characterized by dark green and purple hues peeking through a heavy coat of THCA crystals. When dried, the flower gives off a sweet minty smell that is only exacerbated once you light up.
Considering its powerful lineage, perhaps it’s no surprise that the combined effects of this hybrid results in a powerful full-body high that makes it the perfect choice for patients battling severe pain, nausea, swelling, insomnia, and appetite loss.
This award-winning strain is not only on the list of the top 40 strongest strains of all kind, but it’s also become so notorious in cannabis culture that the strain has it’s own biography. Since coming onto the cannabis scene in 2000, this potent Sativa is known for the sweet and distinctive smell of fresh strawberries that permeate from the plant.
First developed in New York, this terpene profile of this powerful strain will leave consumers with a blend of berry and skunky flavors lingering on their palates while the powerful cerebral effects that are part and parcel of Sativa strains, gives patients a sense of euphoria. The uplifting power of Strawberry Cough makes it an ideal solution for those in need of marijuana for anxiety disorders.
There are few strains as popular in cannabis culture as Blue Dream. Since being introduced to the market in 2003, Blue Dream has taken the cannabis industry by storm. This West Coast legend was made by crossing a Blueberry Indica with a Sativa Haze for the perfectly balanced high. Smoking with this strain triggers full-body relaxation along with a gentle and uplifting cerebral high that is perfect for newbies and veterans alike.
Although Blue Dream is a Sativa dominant hybrid, the terpene and cannabinoid profiles of blueberry Indica help give this strain its sweet aroma. Blue Dream is most popular as a daytime strain for patients as it delivers swift relief from symptoms without the heavy, sedating effects that other hybrids deliver. As this strain is high in THC, it is ideal for patients treating depression, nausea, and those in need of pain management options.
