First, we must pose the question, what factors make a cannabis strain great? After extensive research and expert advice, we narrowed down the top elements of what makes a strain exceptional.

  • Flavinoids
  • Terpenes
  • Aroma
  • Taste
  • Potency
  • A balanced cannabinoid profile

The most notable factor is the strain’s presence and influence on cannabis culture at large. Our list below goes into depth on how these strains impacted the weed world and continue to produce shapes and crosses today. We must also mention that this list might not suit your fancy, as everyone has their standards for their favorite experience with each strain.

Maui Wowie

Known as the perfect strain for daytime use, Maui Wowie made our list merely due to its piney, peppery profile and a high that’s equally uplifting as it is stress-neutralizing. The Sativa-dominant strain is found and grown in the Hawaiian Islands. Not to mention the eye-pulling crystals that are rather tempting in themselves.

This sticky, breezy, tropical strain is another exceptional contribution from DNA Genetics in Amsterdam. With its orange, citrusy aroma, this cross between California Orange and a Skunk hybrid will leave you feeling uplifted, euphoric, and relaxed.

OG Kush

OG Kush takes the cake for one of the highest THC levels worldwide. The 25:75 sativa:indica ratio helps users gain a full-body high while remaining mentally aware and cognizant. Expect the couch-potato effects with intense and vivid euphoria when indulging in some classic Southern California OG Kush.

Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze has made waves as one of the best sativas worldwide. This cross between Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze with an excellent terpene profile of pepper and citrus will leave you feeling wildly energetic, euphoric, and ready to seize the day. This sweet and fruity bud offers a refreshing taste like no other.

NYC Sour Diesel

NYC Sour Diesel takes a top spot for its excellent terpene profile, which revolutionized New York’s cannabis culture in the late 90s. Offering the complete package between euphoria and calmness, NYC Sour Diesel holds 60% sativa dominance, ensuring that you’ll stay awake and aware during your high.
