People always ask us what strains to try, and our answer generally depends on how a person wants to feel, what situation they’ll be in, and what other strains they like. The trends in the world of marijuana are continually changing, and it seems that new strains are popping up every other week. These new strains are great at creating quite a buzz when they “reveal themselves” to the world, but it is important to not overlook some of the more classic strains as well — some of the purest strains are actually the strongest!
Best Sativa Strains
According to another report, Maui Wowie was a Landrace strain discovered on Maui Island. We’ll never know which account is correct, but that’s okay because we’re simply glad Maui Wowie exists. Maui Wowie is a Sativa-dominant strain that will leave you feeling energized and euphoric. This strain is ideal for folks who prefer to get outside rather than stay at home. Maui Wowie is so ancient that the lineage has not even been discovered yet.
No Best Strains of Weed list would be complete without the Sativa-dominant Jack Herer. Jack Herer is named after a cannabis extremist who spent much of his time upon Earth attempting to legalize the medicine.
Sensi Seeds created Jack Herer by combining a Landrace strain with Northern Lights #5 and then crossing that strain with Shiva Skunk. The finished outcome was incredible, with most cuttings holding more than 20% THC. Jack Herer is exciting, uplifting, creative, and relaxing all at the same time. After just one sniff of its floral and citrus scent, you’ll be back for more. Terpinolene, caryophyllene, and myrcene dominate Jack Herer’s terpene profile.
Sour Diesel is a Sativa-dominant strain created for Sativa enthusiasts. It’s unclear who invented this potent strain. Still, it was produced by crossing Sour Diesel with Super Silver Haze to create a heavy hitter.
THC levels routinely exceed 21 percent, making it anything but a strain to fool with. Sour Diesel is ideal for relieving stress while still having enough energy to go through the day. However, don’t use this strain before going to bed; else, you may wind up awake for hours rather than sleeping well. The terpene profile of caryophyllene, limonene, and humulene produces intense fragrances.
