Here is a list of the Top 5 Cannabis Strains of 2018 so you can pick wisely.
A sativa dominant strain, hybrid of Clementine (sativa) and Purple Punch (Indica); the Clementine properties bring an orange citrus note that is true to its Tangie lineage, and the Purple Punch gives it a sweet flavor and sometimes a hint of color to Mimosa’s buds. Mimosa is a brand-new creation from Symbiotic Genetics that has expanded very rapidly in the middle of the marijuana community because of its exotic composition, vivacious, glacial mien, sweet but tangy aroma, not forgetting its spectacular, vitalizing results. If placed in sunshine or artificial light, these trichomes stand out for its beautiful, shiny and shimmering body. Even though the buds are mostly green, they display components of vibrant reds that pervade with bright orange pistils and tiny curling hairs. This is, to my perspective, #1 among the Top 5 Strains of Cannabis for 2018.
Best known for treating stress, depression, chronic pains, cramps and anxiety, this hybrid is uplifting and energizing without the added jitters. Mimosa will leave you feeling positive and spirited. It is most commonly consumed along the West Coast, especially in California and Oregon. Mimosa might be the best new strain I’ve come across recently. Appearance is the second major factor that makes Mimosa so desirable. Ready to be smoked by whoever desires to do so, as it tributes its name.
Another marijuana strain among the first 5 strains of Cannabis this year is Skywalker OG. Skywalker OG, also known as Skywalker OG Kush, is one of the most potent OG strains that there is. A hybrid of OG Kush and Skywalker that provides a calm, numbing effect and cheerful relaxation. This Indica with hints of Sativa genes is used for relaxation purposes. It is extremely comfortable and eventually causes sleep, offering a super relaxed high, with an aroma of pine and a strong, spicy, herbal smell that is characteristic of Kush strains. It produces tight buds with orange hairs and a delicate white sugar coating of trichomes.
Skywalker OG is known for its exhilarating effects. With 20-25% percent THC, the mental state is very clear throughout, even during the period of initial potency. It is used to treat anxiety, loss of appetite, insomnia, depression, chronic stress and musculoskeletal pain. This strain is ideal for those seeking a deep and solid sleep. Its smell and taste are something that most Kush-lovers will fall head over heels for. Use with caution however: Skywalker OG produces a strong enough high that is best if used at the end of the day. Skywalker OG is one of the best Cannabis Strains of 2018.
Bubba Kush is a supposed Northern Lights pheno named ‘Bubba’, that emerged in 1996, when an OG Kush hybrid pollinated an unknown Indica strain obtained from New Orleans by a California breeder named Bubba. It may have been Northern Lights or an Afghani, based on the properties of the offspring. Since then, Bubba Kush has gained massive popularity and notoriety in the U.S. for its calming effects. Before 1998, the Bubba Kush strain was only a clone. Orgnkid was the first to bring Bubba Kush online, starring heated conversations across the cannabis world.
It’s known for large bud structures with hues ranging from purple to green. With sweet hashish flavors and delicate touches of chocolate and coffee, the aroma of Bubba Kush is one of those unique scents you will ever come across with. It has strong, sedative and muscle relaxing properties. Also used for chronic back pain, arthritis, muscle spasms, sciatica, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, ADD or ADHD. It will not improve focus but will relieve the motor agitation.
Bubba Kush is an easy-to-grow plant that does incredibly well indoors under any cultivation technique. Outdoors, large bushes of Bubba Kush buds will need to be kept dry and be provided good airflow. The white coated trichomes were so heavy, this is how it got its name, because it was so sticky with cannabinoid-rich trichomes, it was like bubble gum. Bubba Kush tends to have medium to high THC levels (about 22%). You may feel very affectionate, so this is a good strain to use with a romantic partner.
Originally known as Green Cush (with a C), this 100% pure strain, dominant Indica was renamed “Green Crack” by the famous Snoop Dogg himself. Green Crack is one of the biggest sellers in America’s weed dispensaries and is known to be a ‘popular daytime sativa strain’. After much controversy, some people have decided to stay away from this name because it does not have any addictive crack cocaine and prefer to avoid and not be related to such implications. The most popular type is a Sativa, made by crossing a Skunk #1 with a mango tasting strain. There is also an Indica variety of Green Crack said to have come from an Afghani strain. Recreational shops are serving the sativa variation of Green Crack because it has more demand.
Green Crack buds are tropical with a scent of mango and pineapple, and tangy sour citrus flavors. Green Crack bud is mainly a recreational strain. Its ability to uplift and heal anyone that tries it, gives it a lush reputation. Used in the treatment of depression stress fatigue pain headaches, it contains a THC level of around 15-20%. Green Crack is a great daytime strain that may help consumers. It may also increase creativity and productivity. Its effects will last just long enough but won’t hit you so hard to become completely dysfunctional. Instead, you will be able to go out and about just as you normally would, with all the added energy it gives you. Green Crack is among the top 5 Marijuana Strains of 2018
An all time favorite for its beautiful aesthetics and color is Purple #1. Purple #1 strain is a perfectly balanced, crossed hybrid of 50% Purple Indica and a 50% unknown Sativa. This purple beauty arrived from The Netherlands and was bred by Dutch Passion. A classic marijuana genetics that suits to the modern times with its feminine version. It has its origin in a pure Afghani Indica plant. It rises very fast and it has a high quality, stimulating effect with a feeling of well-being, pleasure and relaxation. Purple #1 gives a happy euphoria with a full body and mind relaxation, gives energy to the mind, makes you laugh, lifts your mood and eases with depression.
Purple #1 has a strong smell and a harsh taste. It is easy to grow and has been designed to resist bad cold weather. It starts to flower as early as August. The buds have violet colors with shimmering crystals covering it. It is good for daytime recreational use. Because of its characteristics its not recommended for indoor growing as it can be difficult to control its height. It can be set as my #5 in my list.
