Though the name may sound a little aggressive, AK-47 is an award-winning Sativa-dominant hybrid. In fact, it’s a favorite all over the United States. This strain is the easy-to-grow child of Mexican, Colombian, Afghani, and Thai landrace strains. The result is a mellow and relaxing high with plenty of pleasant, cerebral effects.
First bred by Serious Seeds, this strain features an unusual sweet taste and aroma. A pungency is what first greets the nose with AK-47. Yet, spice and pine undertones give this strain a strong and one-of-a-kind scent that many describe as skunky, yet an earthy sourness makes up the predominant flavors in AK flowers. Marijuana connoisseurs may detect floral, woody and slightly earthy notes in this strain’s smoke.
Blue Dream, a sativa-dominant hybrid originating in California, has achieved legendary status among West Coast strains. Crossing Blueberry with Haze, Blue Dream balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration. Novice and veteran consumers alike enjoy the level effects of Blue Dream, which ease you gently into a calm euphoria.
Marijuana consumers will detect the powerful diesel smell this strain picks up from possible parent Sour Diesel. There’s also some pine and a slight earthy musk. Despite its chemical odors, marijuana enthusiasts can expect a smooth smoke that surprises with a tangy ammonia flavor on exhale.
Some seed companies, like Greenhouse, offer a version of “Chemdog” that is a cross between OG Kush and Sour Diesel itself. Other breeders claim that their versions of Chemdawg contain the original lineage. At this point, however, it’s very difficult to tell who used the real Chemdawg and who did not. Some suspect that this strain may have Nepalese and Thai heritage.
GSC, formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies, is an OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid cross whose reputation grew too large to stay within the borders of its California homeland.

A little goes a long way with this hybrid, whose THC heights have won GSC numerous Cannabis Cup awards.

Pineapple Express is a cross between Trainwreck and a Hawaiian landrace strain. Trainwreck is a powerful hybrid known for its happy high and soaring THC levels.
Hawaiian strains are thought to be mostly sativa and provide a spirited clear-headed elevation. Sativa-dominant, Pineapple Express provides a happy and euphoric high overall, along with a mellow increase in energy.
Like Trainwreck, Pineapple Express can be quite potent. The THC levels in this bud often reach over 20 percent, making it appropriate for those with some cannabis experience.
Aside from its potency, marijuana enthusiasts enjoy its earthy lemon tastes and aromas. Pine and even some spicy tones will be pick up by cannabis connoisseurs, but forewarning — this is some dank weed, something to keep in mind if discretion is a priority. Pine flavors are immediately recognizable on the inhale, as well as lemon notes. On exhale the lemon flavor becomes more pronounced, along with the tingle of spice that marijuana consumers will find invigorating.
This strain was only available in clone form for many years, but thanks to companies such as Humboldt Seed Organization and Royal Dutch Genetics, among others, seeds of Trainwreck can be bought by any prospective marijuana grower.
This strain is so heavily coated in white crystals that it looks almost white — no doubt where its name came from. It can be hard to pick out any other details under those thick white trichomes, but marijuana consumers will notice light green leaves with few pistils. Despite the heavily resinous nugs, these fluffy buds can be broken open without too much hassle.
Not just sugary in appearance, this strain’s aroma is strong and pungent with hints of wood and pine. This flower’s scent is often described as “dank” with plenty of earthy, moist soil tones. Consumers can expect a slight spicy, herbaceous scent from this one. Novice marijuana consumers be warned — this weed can cause some serious coughing.
