The Pineapple Express Strain Is A Lively Hybrid With Peppery, Piney, And Fruity Melon Aromas

The Pineapple Express strain is one that you’ve undoubtedly heard of. At the very least you’ve seen the movie with the same name starring James Franco and Seth Rogen. This tropical and potentially energizing hybrid strain comes from crossing Trainwreck with Hawaiian. The result is a pungent strain that reeks of apples, mangos, pine, and rich cedar. Those seeking a spicy and sweet smoke that might put a pep in your step for a busy afternoon—look no further.

One look at the Pineapple Express strain and you can tell that it might gas you up. The nugs have a light green color that’s brightened even further by highlighter orange pistils shooting out. Fluffy, conal nugs look like they’re slightly reaching out from the stem. Brilliant trichome density blankets its surface in a way that makes the nugs almost look wet. Immediately you’ll smell the piney fruity gas of this strain upon opening the bag. Cracking a nug open will reveal a deeper pocket of peppery cedar notes.

Beta-caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene are the dominant terpenes in the Pineapple Express strain. This amounts to its strong potential for buzzing, engaging highs that might also create a euphoric calming sensation.

The beta-caryophyllene gives it its overarching earthy musk and a possibility for lending forms of pain relief. Limonene comes in to give more of a melony twist with the potential for anxiety and stress relief. Myrcene combines elegantly with the limonene to bring out more of apple and floral notes and it might create a calming feeling.

Smoking on some of this strain is no joke. This cultivar hits hard and might light you up on the first puff. With each rip, you might find yourself buzzing with creative thoughts and the desire to get up and go. Anyone with a stressful job might find this strain to be the perfect medicine to alleviate some of the stress and liven the mood.

The Samoas Strain Has Become One Of The Most Popular Children Of GSC For Its Enlivening Highs And Sweet Herbaceous Stench

The Samoas Strain Has Become One Of The Most Popular Children Of GSC For Its Enlivening Highs And Sweet Herbaceous Stench

The Samoas strain has become a wildly popular child of GSC. By crossing Girl Scout Cookies with the Face Off OG you end up with this wildly tangy and gassy cultivar. Adding another trophy to the Cookies genetic line, Samoas aka Samoa Cookies has all of the visual and aromatic appeals you’ve been looking for. This strain might hit you hard with a pungent spicy lemony flavor that jolts you into an uplifting nirvana. 

Looking at the Samoas strain, it’s gorgeous plain and simple. Its dense, dark, and frosty nugs are a sight to behold. You’ll notice a healthy amount of dark purple wound up in the rich, forest green hues of the nugs. The furry coating of trichomes almost hides the true coloration of the nugs. Dull, yet strikingly orange pistils twist out through the cracks with all of their might. On the nose, the Samoas has an acrid, sour, and lemony aroma. Breaking a nug open will unleash a wave of hoppy diesel that has a tinge of sweet herbs on the resolve.

With no lab data available, one can only make a guess at the dominant terpenes from the Samoas strain’s lineage. Judging from the large presence of limonene and beta-caryophyllene in both its parents, it’s not unfair to assume the Samoas strain boasts these terps too. The sweet and sedative qualities it’s said to have made me think there’s some myrcene in there too. These three terpenes show up a lot in sweet, citrusy, lemony, spicy, and musky indica strains often.

Smoking on some of the Samoas strain, you may notice the sweet lemony flavors have a stress-relieving quality. Meanwhile, the acrid gas of the beta-caryophyllene could be contributing to the luxurious relaxation of this strain in tandem with its naturally high THC levels. Finally, the myrcene could be adding to the herbaceous sweetness of the strain, and might be lending more to its relaxing qualities. Those seeking relief from chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, and depression might find the Samoas strain to be a veritable delight.

The Top-Secret G13 Strain Has A Legendary Lemony Gas That Might Send You Into Straight Euphoria

The Top-Secret G13 Strain Has A Legendary Lemony Gas That Might Send You Into Straight Euphoria

The G13 strain is one that any OG stoner is familiar with. Despite its unknown lineage, there are many secrets surrounding its origins. Legend has it, the G13 strain came from the efforts of the CIA, FBI, and other agencies breeding “super hybrids” during the late 1960s. At a secret facility at the University of Mississippi, it’s said that a technician stole away with a single cut of the strain. It’s since found its way into the hearts of stoners around the world for its pungent herbal citrus gas.

Looking at the G13 strain, it has the classic appearance of an indica hitter. Dense nugs are accentuated by earthy green coloration and thick veins of orange pistils. A furry coating of trichomes make this strain very aesthetically pleasing. On the nose, there’s a bevy of floral lemon diesel that fills any room. Snapping a nug open, you get a shot of spicier herbaceousness straight up your nose. 

The dominant terpenes in the G13 strain are myrcene, limonene, and beta-caryophyllene. This explains why many claim it to be potentially gripping. This combination of terps isn’t uncommon with potent euphoric, relaxing, and uplifting strains. The myrcene is adding some floral sweetness to the aromatics of this strain, as well as some of its potentially calming qualities. Limonene is also lending to the overall sweetness, but giving a blast of citrusy lemons and potentially stress-relieving qualities. Lastly, beta-caryophyllene gives the strain more of a spicy kick and strong potential for pain relief.

Smoking on some of the G13 strain, you might immediately feel a powerful brain blast that puts you into pure bliss. The spicier notes will come out more on the smoke, with a lemony earthiness existing on the resolve. Those looking for an ideal strain for winding down the day and battling their insomnia might find the G13 strain to be a real treat.

Energize Your Morning With The Fiery And Gassy Green Crack Strain

Energize Your Morning With The Fiery And Gassy Green Crack Strain

The Green Crack strain is probably one of the first strains you heard of that has an intimidating name. There’s a good chance you smoked this strain early on in your career and it gave you some of your first impressions of what an invigorating, buzzing high is like. Its only known parent is Skunk #1 which lends to its engaging and mysterious qualities. Some people don’t enjoy the negative connotations surrounding the name so it’s sometimes called Green Cush.

Looking at some of the Green Crack strain, you’ll see brilliantly tight nugs that have a conal shape. Vivid green hues come together with vibrant orange pistils that create an eye-grabbing appearance. Loud, tangy, zesty aromas blast you in the face in a way that widens the eyes and excites the brain. Cracking a nug open, you’ll pick up more of the floral and lemony notes that add depth to the musky gas of this strain.

Green Crack by Equinox Gardens

A closer look at the dominant terpenes of the Green Crack strain offers an interesting perspective. Its prevailing terps are myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, and limonene. The myrcene comes as kind of a surprise because this terp usually lends berry flavors and potentially comforting and sedative highs. In this case, it’s playing more of a secondary role giving off more of a floral and herbaceous aroma. The beta-caryophyllene makes sense for its peppery, spicy, energizing qualities that may also give anti-inflammatory effects. Limonene gives the strain its citrusy zest and lends to its potential anxiety-relieving and uplifting qualities.

Smoking on some of the Green Crack strain might find you lighting up quickly with a distinct focus and energy. The mental buzz of this strain may get you flying through your day with ease. A sunny day out smoking the Green Crack might set you on productive cruise control that leads to a pleasant euphoria.

The Zesty Super Lemon Haze Strain May Energize And Uplift Your Spirits

The Zesty Super Lemon Haze Strain May Energize And Uplift Your Spirits

The Super Lemon Haze strain is a super sativa strain that has become a low-key favorite among stoners across the West Coast. The terpene-rich and colorful cultivar comes from crossing the Lemon Skunk with Super Silver Haze to great effect. The aromas it gives off are diverse, showing off notes of citrus, sweetness, and overall zestiness. The taste of this strain actually translates pretty well from its alluring aromas. It may give you the jolt of energy and uplifting creativity that you’ve been searching for.

Looking at the Super Silver Haze strain, it’s seemingly obvious that it’s a powerful hitter. The coloration on the nugs includes vibrant shades of light green with some almost yellow hues blending in. You’ll see pleasantly orange pistils wriggle their way into the nooks and crannies of the nug. More than anything, you’ll take notice of the almost frosty coating of trichomes across its entire surface. Sticky to the touch, this strain has a powerful smell that shines through no matter the pheno.

Taking a moment to consider the dominant terpenes, it all becomes a little more clear. The top three for the Super Lemon Haze strain are terpinolene, myrcene, and ocimene. What’s crazy is that usually, limonene plays a huge role in delivering lemony and zesty aromas and flavor, but this time it’s terpinolene. 

Super Lemon Haze Strain by Equinox Gardens

Terpinolene is a diverse terpene that can smell like fresh fruit, but also take on sweet and citrus types of aromas. It has the potential to offer a bountifully enlightening high that may totally lift-up your spirits. Myrcene is a classic terpene offering more of the floral and herbaceous notes and potentially lending to the calming and euphoric qualities of the high. Ocimene is another tricky one that doesn’t come up much, but it also offers potentially uplifting effects and adds a minty, fresh, and more sweet herbal notes.

Smoking on some of the Super Silver Haze strain, it may become quickly apparent that it might have taken you straight to cloud nine. The effects of the more sour and tart smoke are potentially energizing and enlivening. Users looking for a potential creative boost or palpable stress relief should consider this commendable strain.

The Pungeant Maui Wowie Strain Is One Of The Most Classic Sativa Landrace Strains

The Pungeant Maui Wowie Strain Is One Of The Most Classic Sativa Landrace Strains

The Maui Wowie strain is so popular and has been circulating so long that everyone knows its name. This tropical sativa hitter comes straight from the volcanic soil of Hawaii. Eventually, it made its way across the entire world. As a landrace strain, the Maui Wowie was naturally growing off the shores of Hawaii and has no parent genetics. Much like Acapulco Gold and Hindu Kush, the strain was named after its indigenous area. Sweet and sour pineapple flavors swirl together to create a potentially euphoric high that supercharges you with energy.

Looking at some of the Maui Wowie strain, you’ll notice fluffy, light nugs and summery green hues. Highlighter-orange pistils jut out to offer an aesthetically pleasing contrast. The nugs are long and thin in that classic sativa fashion, sparkling from the sticky trichome coverage. Floral and piney aromas will be coming from it quite loudly with a subtle hint of spice. Breaking a nug apart, you’ll pick up more of the cheesy musk that has an almost minty and fruity resolve. 

The effects of the Maui Wowie strain don’t necessarily match the dominant terpenes in it. Usually myrcene, alpha-pinene, and beta-caryophyllene lend to blissful and muscle-relaxing highs. In the case of Maui Wowie though, they seem to ramp up a potentially motivating and active high.

Maui Wowie by Suspended Brands

Limonene is usually a dominant terp in a potentially energizing strain like this. Somehow though, the potential relaxing qualities of myrcene, and the anxiety relief of alpha-pinene, and the anti-inflammatory qualities and buzzing high from beta-caryophyllene work perfectly.

Smoking on some of the Maui Wowie strain, it will hit you with tangy peppery flavor that immediately goes to your head. The high might take over quick, making you feel lightweight and ready for action. In the same fashion that this strain came from the sun, the high it gives may take you there as well. Those looking for potentially creative boosters or a midday smoke to keep your spirits up, the Maui Wowie strain might be your go-to.

The Gorilla Glue (GG #4) Strain Took The World By Storm With Its Sedative High And Earthy-Sweet Flavors

The Gorilla Glue (GG #4) Strain Took The World By Storm With Its Sedative High And Earthy-Sweet Flavors

There was a point in time where you couldn’t stop hearing about the Gorilla Glue #4 strain aka Original Glue, or GG#4. Whether it was from every shop up and down the West Coast carrying it, or rappers talking about smoking it in popular tracks, it was everywhere. It’s only arguable fall from the limelight could have come when lawsuits forced the name to change to Original Glue instead of Gorilla Glue. There were also many other strains becoming super popular around this time such as GSC and Wedding Cake. Whatever the reason was for its slight decrease in overall popularity, GG#4 is still a super spicy and sweet treat worth trying.

This potent hybrid is a combination of Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. So many sour and gassy strains went into concocting this masterpiece of potential euphoric sedation. It won several High Times Cannabis Cups and even the High Times Jamaican World Cup, and worldwide still is a sought after hitter. Looking at some Gorilla Glue or GG#4, you’ll notice bushy nugs with grassy green and earthy yellow hues. There’s an incredibly thick blanket of trichomes across its surface that hint at its potent THC levels. Electric orange pistils jut out from within to create an aesthetically pleasing sight.

Breaking a nug open, you’ll find yourself in a swirl of sour chemical gas, with hints of sweetness poking out to strike a balance. The dominant terpenes in Gorilla Glue aka GG#4 are beta-caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene. This would explain the blast of pure gas this strain gives off before revealing its zesty and sweet qualities.

Gorilla Glue (GG #4) Strain by Spady Bud

Beta-caryophyllene is a great terpene for potentially finding relief from chronic pain, and it adds a spicy, earthy, and peppery flavor to the mix. Limonene is a classically citrus and lemony terp that may help with anxiety and stress and gives the Gorilla Glue strain some sweetness. Myrcene is a common terpene that may help relax and uplift your spirits and lends to some of the earthy floral qualities of its scent.

Smoking on some of the Gorilla Glue strain may, as the name implies, glue you to your seat. The pleasant sour and sweet notes enhance the heavy high that may consume you. The Gorilla Glue aka Original Glue strain hits hard and shoots you up into space with potentially soaring euphoric feelings. Many companies will produce this strain still in their initial stages, if not longer, because it still holds such a strong place in many tokers’ hearts for its pleasing effects.

The dominant terpenes in the Diamond OG strain are alpha-pinene, myrcene, and beta-caryophyllene. This combination of terps explains the nullifying relaxation this strain may produce. Alpha-pinene is the most common terpene found in the natural world. It might be useful for eliminating pain, inflammation, and anxiety. Myrcene is also a very common terpene with floral and sweet aromas that may lend to classically calming feelings. Beta-caryophyllene is responsible for the gassy musk of the strain, and may also be useful for its anti-inflammatory qualities.

Smoking on some of the Diamond OG, whether it’s in flower or concentrate form, may take you on the wildest ride to relaxation.
