Malawi Gold

Malawi Gold is a sativa strain with an awe-inspiring THC level of 16%. This strain is often consumed due to its impressive mental and physical effects. Malawi Gold grows into lovely, gold-colored buds, making it one of the most desirable strains on the market today.

Malawi Gold is a potent strain; it nails your head and body in just a few hits, making you feel very relaxed. It comes with mild cerebral effects that allow your mind to soar and get creative. A dynamic Sativa, Malawi Gold has quite a long flowering time because it has adapted to sunlight!


Snowcap is one of the most pungent strains in our range. Snowcap is a 50/50 hybrid strain, with up to 22% THC and 0.4% CBD. Not for the faint-hearted. Among the weed industry, the Snowcap strain is relatively new.

Its citrusy, lemon scent makes it a highly refreshing marijuana variety, while its relaxing yet uplifting high will undoubtedly impress even the fussiest of marijuana smokers.

Frisian Dew

Frisian Dew combines their own indica and sativa genes, producing an even hybrid of 50% indica and 50% sativa. A unique plant, it has been selectively bred to have deformed leaves and a low THC concentration, so it doesn’t resemble the marijuana plants known to most.

If you like a little spice in your life, Frisian Dew is the perfect strain for you. It has a peppery taste and will help calm down those aches and pains so you can power through your day feeling fresh and energized!

Pinkman Goo

Pinkman Goo is regarded as one of the unique strains you can find. Pinkman Goo’s smell reminds me of sweet pea pods, while its taste has hints of a succulent lemon. Pinkman Goo is the perfect starter plant for an enthusiastic grower.

This Purple Kush and Ghost Train Haze hybrid are unique in every aspect, including its lineage, aroma, hardiness, and taste. The final product is a sweet and beautiful strain that will brighten up even the dreariest of days. The resin is a thick and sticky one, but don’t let that fool you. This is not a low-grade marijuana strain.

Green Crack

You’ll soon realize that Green Crack is one of the most popular cannabis strains ever if you look around. We’re not surprised. It’s a power-packed sativa blend with a tangy taste and a citrus aroma. You won’t find any indica here, just all sativa.

With Green Crack, the mind is clear to do what needs to be done. One of our highest-rated strains for energy, you might find yourself friendly and talkative at parties.

Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a strain that is one of a kind. Its parents are Big Bud and Purple Urkle, and the strain was a cross between an Afghani indica and a Thai sativa. It has an aroma of fruit (mostly grape), and its buds have exploded in popularity over the last few years.

A delight to smoke, Granddaddy Purple provides a grape taste from its Purple Urkle parent. Smokers will love the potent high and exotic taste of this variety. With a sweet scent, even non-smokers will find it hard to resist the aroma.

Platinum OG

This strain is named for its high content of platinum, the most precious metal on Earth. Delivering euphoric and relaxing effects in equal measure, Platinum OG has been instrumental in relieving conditions such as chronic pain and nausea.

Sweet & Sour Widow

The Sour Diesel strain is a balanced hybrid that has a steady buzz. It doesn’t make you feel like you are on cloud 9, but it gets you away from all the problems and pain. The strain is most effective when combined with other medications.

Master Kush

Master Kush, a perfect example of the success of decades of careful breeding. This strain was bred from two classic landrace strains from India and Pakistan. It has a very potent hash-like flavor and an intense high.

This plant has a unique subtle earthy and citrus smell and delivers a vintage flavor with hints of incense known as a hard-rubbed chakras flavor. This strain provides full-body relaxation without adverse effects. Instead, it sharpens our sensory awareness, which makes us feel sharpened to analyze every activity better.


The staggering potency of Trainwreck will leave you feeling down for the count. Delivering THC levels over 25%, this strain is not for the mild-mannered consumer. Get ready for an adventure!

Trainwreck is a name you’ll hear a lot in medical marijuana circles. It’s been around for decades, but its popularity increases as people learn more about its effectiveness.

Banana Kush

This West Coast creation is on the list of exotic strains. Its exotic marijuana buds have a characteristically light green color and attractive shape and texture. This strain smells just like a warm, ripe banana peel and tastes just as wonderful as a smoothie.

Banana Kush is a mellow and delicious hybrid with an earthy aroma with hints of spice. It makes an excellent option for those dealing with stress or depression, as this strain brings on tranquility and a faint sensation of euphoria.

OG Kush

With its genetic solid pedigree, appearance, and smell, OG Kush is one of the unique cannabis strains on the market. Unlike other kush strains, OG Kush includes a significant amount of both indica and sativa genetics. 

They crossed two strains together to create this hybrid, the OG Kush. It has a unique terpene profile and pleases the senses with notes of fuel, skunk & spice. It’s often enjoyed in the back half of the day to ease stress and promote relaxation.


Diablo gets its best genetics from the Grapefruit and Blueberry strains, making it a fruity and tasty plant to smoke. If you’ve been searching for a strain that has robust THC levels without sacrificing flavor, you’ll love Diablo! With beautiful purple buds, Diablo is a great strain to show off in your garden.

Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough is a potent sativa and is famous for making people cough when it is smoked. The taste and smell of strawberries are almost strange as if burning plant material could smell and taste so much like my favorite berry. It’s been a mystery to many cannabis users as to where this strain comes from.

There are many exotic cannabis strains out there. However, not all are created equally. We’ve done extensive research to bring you the best of the bunch and help narrow your options based on your particular needs!
