    Top 10 Best Strain Names

    Top 10 Best Strain Names

    At least 800 different strains of marijuana exist, with new variations coming and going all the time. Here are 10 of the best-named strains around.

    1. Alaskan Thunder Fuck

    One of the strongest sativas on the market, this strain is named after its originating location: the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. This strain is apparently capable of “thunder-fucking” your brain upon inhale, hitting strong but leaving you feeling happy.

    ATF is known to have a “creeper” tendency, first offering a relaxing effect then changing to a more intense, euphoric feeling.

    This strain has an earthy/woody flavor, with pine and lemon scents. It can provide relief from stress and mild depression, making it a popular choice among medical marijuana patients.

    2. Bob Saget OG

    Named after the actor, comedian, and TV host, this strain is perfect for enjoying old “Full House” reruns. This strain is a mix of Afghani and Pre-98 Bubba Kush that typically offers an uplifting cerebral high that calms into full-body relaxation without fully attaching its user to the couch.

    3. Cat Piss

    Named after its ammonia-like aroma, this sativa strain has a sweet and sour taste that offers a pleasant, stimulating, chilled vibration.

    This strain began as clone phenotype of Super Silver Haze. While it may smell strongly of cat piss, there’s also earthy/pine undertones and the high it provides keeps users going back for more.

    4. Dog Shit

    If you weren’t already turned off by cat piss, how about some dog shit?

    This sativa-dominant hybrid strain is most easily found in Oregon. It is known to provide an uplifting, euphoric feeling, elevating your mood and eliminating stress.

    This strain’s genetic background is rather elaborate as it supposedly stems from Purple Zacatecas, Colombian Gold, Cambodian, and Hippie Trail Afghani.

    5. Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien

    Not sure what a “hidden alien” is? Apparently, this strain can turn you into one. This uniquely named strain inspires a heavy, full-body, deeply relaxed sensation, like that of taking a sedative if you consume enough.

    In a smaller quantity, Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien can incite a reasonable level of creativity, or enhance a user’s current sense of creativity. This strain is also great for those experiencing stress or those who need a solid night’s sleep. It can also offer relief from nausea, pain, and inflammation.

    This powerful indica strain is the child of Starfighter and Tigers Milk, originating in Washington state. The taste is known to be that of pepper/spice and it is famed for a high THC content of over 21%.

    6. Cannasutra

    If its name isn’t obvious enough, this indica strain is capable of enhancing sensual feels, similar to the concept of Kama Sutra – except this method requires less flexibility.

    Other than being capable of leaving you and your partner feeling relaxed and sensual, this strain also provides a mild but mood-elevating high. Cannasutra is great for an all-day smoke as it can boost mental focus instead of disrupting it.

    7. Purple Monkey Balls

    If you’re a fan of flavorful, heavy-hitting indicas, you’re going to want to get your hands on some Purple Monkey Balls.

    This strain is believed to be a combination of Mendo Purps and Deep Chunk or Granddaddy Purple and Deep Chunk. The name comes from this strain’s appearance: big, purple-colored, round buds, and it has an earthy, grape flavor.

    Purple Monkey Balls comes with a couch-lock caution, so it may not be best to smoke this strain right before you go to work. However, its potency does offer several medicinal applications, like alleviating depression, stress, and relief from pain.

    8. Green Crack

    A far less dangerous and addictive alternative to actual crack. This one-of-a-kind, indica-dominant hybrid strain can provide focus and energy, invigorating in a way that can apparently last through an entire day. It has an earthy, citrus, and sweet flavor.

    9. Charlie Sheen

    AKA “Crack Kush,” this strain is named after history’s most “winning” actor. Smoking Charlie Sheen causes wide eyes and exuberant levels of energy. If you smoke this strain among friends and in an atmosphere you feel comfortable, your levels of chatty-ness will increase as well.

    Alternatively, this strain is not recommended for those who experience anxiety or paranoia when they smoke or otherwise. Charlie Sheen is best in small doses, especially for first-time users of this strain or those with a lower tolerance.

    This indica-dominant hybrid is a mix of Green Crack and Hindu Kush. Fans of Charlie Sheen enjoy its quality, potent buds that smell of lemon and pine and have a flavor comparable to a sweet kush.

    10. Afghooey

    AKA “afgoo,” this strain is aptly named for its gooey nature. A strong hybrid strain of 80% indica and 20% sativa, Afghooey can turn a stressful day into an immensely relaxing one.

    This strain’s buds are light, fluffy, and covered in crystals. It is known to make its users feel soft and gooey on the inside, hence its name. It is a sugarier version of an Afghan strain, with an earthy, sweet, and woody flavor.

    Now that you have some ideas on the next strain you'll be smokin', grind some up and try it in a cryo freezable glycerin bowl or a SAX silicone water pipe.

    Five Weed Facts | INFOGRAPHIC

    five weed facts infographic

    Michigan, Oklahoma, Utah, Missouri, and Nebraska are among US states looking to legalize weed at a medical or recreational capacity this fall. Whether you partake, there is no shortage of interesting facts about this plant.

    Here are five random marijuana facts:

    1. Federally legalizing cannabis in the US would bring in $8.7 billion in tax revenue. Not only would it bring in revenue, but states also spend about $3.6 billion on marijuana law enforcement.

    2. Weed today is 57-67% more potent than it was in the ‘70s – thanks to the addition of the hydroponics gardening system. Back then, it was much more common for users to smoke stem and leaf bits instead of actual bud.

    3. The legal cannabis industry has created an estimated 123,000 full-time jobs in the US. The following states lead the country in marijuana-related job creation:

    • California: 43,374 full-time jobs
    • Colorado: 23,407 full-time jobs
    • Washington: 22,952 full-time jobs

    4. You would have to smoke 800 joints in one sitting to die from marijuana. It still wouldn’t be the weed that did you in, but carbon monoxide poisoning instead. To overdose on cannabis, you’d have to smoke 400,000 times the average amount in a short period of time.

    5. The very first e-commerce transaction was a weed sale. In the early ‘70s, students at Stanford used the school’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to take part in a marijuana transaction with fellow students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The students used their school’s network to organize the sale of an undetermined amount of weed.

      Generation Differences of Smoking Cannabis

      Generation Differences of Smoking Cannabis

      Marijuana’s journey in America started when it gained infamy from the Marijuana Stamp Act in 1937 which made weed illegal.

      No scientific evidence was used to back up and defend the justification of making marijuana illegal. Stereotypes were put in place in order to have Marijuana looked down upon.

      A movie titled, "Reefer Madness" made for an even greater negative influence on the way society viewed marijuana. In the 50’s marijuana laws were increased to 2-10 years for a minimum sentence and a fine of around $20,000. This created a greater risk if choosing to smoke weed at the time due to the harsh consequences.

      Luckily, when the 1960’s rolled around the knowledge behind marijuana was starting to grow gradually and it was ruled out that the substance does not induce violence. Counter culture in the hippie era is when marijuana started to truly make its first run in the United States. Many of the youth in the ‘60’s become more accustom to mary jane due to the heavy shifts in cultural and political views. Hippy weed, as it’s known today, is the marijuana that was smoked throughout the 1960’s and even 70’s. This weed was often imported from Central American countries and is known to have a very minimal potency to it. A single joint from the modern day era has the same potency of about 20 joints from the hippy era. This dramatic increase in marijuana strength changes the entire landscape and basis of ingesting marijuana.

      In 1970 weed was set apart from other drugs which made it possible to lose its minimal sentencing laws for small possessions. Smoking weed in the 70’s was seen and regarded as a far different experience as it is today. Although it was heavily ridiculed by those who were not of the marijuana movement, those involved in the movement treated it as a spiritual experience with those around them and with nothing to hide. It is more often than not now a days that marijuana smoking is kept as a secret or on the down low. This judgement on weed in the modern day is slowly but surely beginning to change with state and local laws evolving in order to make marijuana legal not only medically, but recreationally as well.

      Weed’s main image stayed the same for a long time: bud, papers for joints, and pipes/ bongs to smoke out of. Unlike today’s plethora of ways to smoke and substances to inhale the hippy days of weed were much more simplistic. Not only has the THC content (Potency) in marijuana rose dramatically over the past 50 years, the types of marijuana now stretches much further than just flower buds. Wax, edibles, vaporizers, and blunts are just a few of the most relevant apparatuses that have recently brought around to the weed industry. These items not only expand the culture of marijuana but also bring more extensive knowledge and prominence to the industry. Being able to extract chemicals from marijuana makes it a more effective medicine and helps researchers understand its full potential.

      The leniency of marijuana in the U.S. has and will continue to grow until it is legal on the federal level recreationally. Marijuana's frowned upon status has been turned around to a much more acceptable factor in society that can leave more of a positive impact than most would expect.
