Move over vapers, we’ve got some weed strains that will compete with your brag-worthy flavor selections! Marijuana consumers know that the plant is not just good for your health, but also for your tastebuds. In this article we’ll look at some of the best-tasting strains to suit those hard to satisfy cravings.
Modern advancements have allowed breeders to create a rich variety flavors and scents making it practically impossible to try every marijuana strain. But even then, you won’t be able to keep up with new breeds that pop up every year with names that range from exotic (Malawi) to mouthwatering (Banana Ice Cream).
It can get confusing to pick the tastiest strains with all the options that’s out there so we thought of listing down the top 6 best tasting marijuana strains that are sure to make your tastebuds happy.
Tangie is a favorite among many users for its strong, sweet orange flavor (and its name probably inspired by Tang, but we can’t confirm nor deny that!).
The first thing you will notice when you take a puff of this is its strong, zesty citrus flavor followed by a lingering tropical aftertaste. Pop open a jar of Tangie and it’s guaranteed to fill the room with the sweet smell of citrus.
It’s a strong sativa that makes you euphoric, energized, motivated, and in the mood to do creative tasks. It can even make you chatty and sociable too so feel free to smoke a bud or two of this with your buddies.
Tangie is also popular among medicinal users since it can ease pain, stress, and depression although it’s advised to consume it moderately as too much of this potent strain can result in headaches and anxiety.
Cookies and Cream
There’s a good reason why this strain won 1st place in the Best Hybrid in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup. It not only mixes the best sativa and indica qualities of Starfighter and Girl Scout Cookies but it also tastes and smells incredibly delicious.
As its name suggests, Cookies and Cream delivers a sweet nutty, earthy taste topped with creamy butter –almost like burnt french toast. It gives you a potent high thanks to its high THC content of 20%-26% and leaves you feeling uplifted, energized, and giggly. If you’re having trouble keeping a good appetite, consider adding Cookies and Cream on your list the next time you visit the dispensary.
Named after the sugar-sweet tasting cereal, the Fruity Pebbles strain boasts an extraordinarily tasty berry flavor that’ll make you reminiscent of your favorite childhood cereal. It’s a cross between Grand Daddy Purple, Green Ribbon, Tahoe OG, and Alien Kush, blending all its best sativa and indica qualities to deliver feelings of euphoria and happiness.
As an indica dominant hybrid with THC levels ranging from 17%-26%, the euphoric cerebral buzz may then be followed by deep body relaxation and possible couch lock. Make sure to have snacks right beside you as you take this strain since it’s known to induce the munchies. The next time you’re looking for something tasty that makes you feel good and relaxed, this is the strain to get.
If you love the taste of strawberries, you’ll love smoking the Strawberry Cough. This sativa is a cross between the strains Strawberry Fields and Haze giving it a strong flavor profile consisting of strawberry, cherry, and bubblegum. It’s a smooth enjoyable smoke with a moderately potent THC level of 15%-20% making you feel relaxed and focused.
It helps that the Strawberry Couch smells really good too so you can just sit back, put your feet up, and get mesmerized by the sweet aromas. It’s also been known to help with lack of appetite so if you smoke this, you won’t know whether it’s the THC that hit you or the strong strawberry taste.
Bursting with flavors grape, cherry, and grapefruit is the indica dominant hybrid Grape Ape. It comes in a THC level of 17%-18% and smokes very smoothly without irritating your throat.
The Grape Ape has slow onset so be sure not to over consume it for fear that you’re not feeling the high just yet.
Let the smoke fill your lungs and be prepared to be washed over by a cerebral high and spacey calmness. You’ll feel relaxed, peaceful, and maybe even fall asleep. Grape Ape is also effective against pain, depression, insomnia, stress, and lack of appetite. Eating food will be extra enjoyable when you smoke this so be prepared to have some healthy snacks ahead. That way, you’re still doing good by your body even whilst you’re having munchies.
With a hint of spices, a blast of citrus, and nuances of scented flowers, MK Ultra is an award-winning cannabis strain that’s a cross between OG Kush and G-13.
In addition to it’s finely sophisticated flavor, it’s also a great mood lifter, and can help with insomnia –making it as practical as it is great tasting!
How to Enjoy Your Tasty Marijuana Strain
Watch what you eat
Any food item you eat prior to consuming marijuana can alter its flavor. If you really want to fully enjoy the taste of the strain you’re taking, make sure that your mouth is clean. Also clean your hands before you smoke as it can affect the smell of the bud you’re smoking.
Check your environment
Your surroundings can also affect your strain’s aroma. Check to see if there is any strong or offending smells emanating in the room before smoking your marijuana strain. The smell should be somewhat neutral with a room temperature of 22-24ºC and humidity level of 50%.
Smoke how you like it
When it comes to consuming marijuana for flavor, pick a method that you’re used to. There’s no use struggling to point using a water pipe if you don’t know how to operate it or smoking a blunt if you suck at rolling them. Just go about it the way you normally do so you’re not so distracted by the method and you’re more focused on the flavor.
Each cannabis strain comes with a unique flavor and aroma profile ranging from sour to sweet, from woody to fruity. You may prefer flavors that you already love but don’t be afraid to try other strains too. This is one of the major factors that make marijuana consumption exciting. As with anything, make sure to consume moderately. Know your tolerance range as well as when it’s time to switch strains to experience the same effect.
