With the growing accessibility of pot varieties on the market, there has been an increase in the number of unique hybrid strains introduced over the last several years. Combining some of the most popular strains of the past several decades has given birth to a whole new collection of characteristics that stand out on their own.
Here are ten hybrid strains that have earned a positive reputation among cannabis enthusiasts all over the country:
God’s Gift – It’s hard to compete with the lovechild of two of the most popular original strains ever to hit the market. OG Kush and Grand Daddy Purp were combined to create this high-THC strain that boasts between 17-20% THC content. Everybody seems to love the positive, relaxing vibes that stick around for hours.
White Fire – The brilliant blend of Krome’s The White and Fire OG Kush, this is an indica-strong hybrid that is just perfect for stress relief and relaxation. It is a soft green color with bright bursts of orange and red mixed throughout, greeting you with a strong sour scent and a mild earthy flavor.
Girl Scout Cookies – True to its namesake, Girl Scout Cookies is a five-star hybrid that brings out the best of OG Kush, Durban Poison and Cherry Kush. This is a sativa-heavy blend that offers a smooth head high that has been praised as a creative and energy-boosting choice.
Dutch Treat – Presenting with a strong body high and a great treatment option for people with depression and anxiety, Dutch Treat is a hybrid of Northern Lights, Skunk and Haze. This is another indica-strong option that has a pleasant woody smell with just a touch of mint. Not too sour, not too sweet, but just right.
Purple Haze – Who hasn’t heard of this legendary hybrid? Traditional Purple Thai and Haze have come together to create a euphoric head high that is strongly sativa driven. A great choice for someone who wants to get out of a mental rut and doesn’t want the lethargy of the heavier indica strains. It is rated excellent for its uplifting properties and its berry sweet flavor.
Blue Dream – This is one of the most balanced hybrids on the market today, featuring Blueberry’s indica with Haze’s sativa. It has a relatively high THC content, ranging from 17-24%, and is an all-around good smoke for pain relief and nausea. This particular strain has continued to gain popularity for years, and is one of the most easily found options at most dispensaries.
Pineapple Express – No Top 10 list would be complete without an honorary mention of Pineapple Express. Born of Trainwreck and Hawaiian, this is a super sweet, fruity sativa blend that is bright green and orange in color. Fans of this strain report that it provides a huge boost in energy and creativity so you can get things done.
AK-47 – This is an extremely complex hybrid strain that combines South American, Thai, Mexican and Afghani varieties in an extremely pungent sativa blend. This is definitely one of the earthier flavors on this list. It creates a very long-lasting head high that you can count on for hours and hours of relaxation and peaceful contemplation.
Lemon Kush – Bringing together the tangy citrus flavor of Lemon Joy and the mellow sweetness of Master Kush, Lemon Kush is a prized hybrid. A light green bud with white trichomes, it is known for its happiness-boosting qualities. Most often used to reduce stress and relieve pain, many people report that this is one of the most truly unique flavor and scent profiles out there.
Fruity Pebbles – If you are looking for something that will take you back to happier times, try this favorite fruity hybrid that is vaguely reminiscent of that timeless children’s cereal. Green Ribbon, Granddaddy Purple and Tahoe Alien have been combined to create a smooth, slightly indica-driven hybrid with a tropical mix of flavors. This one is really up there as a depression reducing, relaxant that will put your mind on a different plane.
With each passing day there are dozens of new hybrids coming from proprietary breeders and LiveGreen is proud to share them with our valued customers.
