One of legendary breeder Soma’s most varied and geographically-diverse strains, Lavender strain (formerly known as Soma #10) is named for its common finishing color and also for its unique flowery-spice scent that brings to mind fragrant charas hashish.
Despite the plant’s Indica-dominant genotype, it grows tall and leggy and is very easy to manicure. Lavender is a very relaxing and mellow strain, making it easy to slip into early sleep with a high dosage. Great for evening relaxation leading into sleep as well as muscle pain and anxiety.
“This well-balanced hybrid originates at TGA Seeds and its main breeders Subcool and Mz. Jill, though this one is actually Mz. Jill’s work. As the story goes, one day Mz. Jill was gifted an Orange Skunk cut (of unknown origin, likely Aeric77’s Cali-O) with an uncanny orange flavor. Always searching for new and more delectable tastes they immediately thought of crossing the new cut with their potent Space Queen, whose cherry/mango flavors were already a big hit. Thus was born Jilly Bean. These colorful, hybrid flowers exhibit a perfect union of Indica/Sativa bud structure.
Lifesaver (or Life Saver) is an indica-dominant hybrid that lives up to its name in more ways than one. This bud offers a tart, candy-like fruit flavor alongside some invaluable therapeutic power. Lifesaver was created by inventive breeders BOG Seeds as a cross between their own BOG Bubble and JCB (which is itself a cross of Jack’s Cleaner and Blueberry). The result is a dynamically-flavored flower with lasting and balanced potency. Lifesaver’s THC content has been measured at between 12% and 21%.
The Scoop: Jack Herer is a lofty and inspired hybrid that was first cultivated by one of the resourceful breeders. Perpetuating the notoriety of its deceased hemp-activist namesake, Jack is thought to be a cross between Shiva Skunk, Northern Lights #5, and an enigmatic Haze hybrid. Debatably considered one of the most victorious varieties competing in modern cannabis festivals, Jack Herer has taken home multiple HTCC trophies over its celebrated 23-year lifespan.
Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybrid with potent sativa effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma.
Combining the heavy Indica strain, The White with the strong Sativa strain Cinderella 99 yields the amazing hybrid known as White 99. This strain yields bright green buds with yellowish-orange hairs that look as though they were sprinkled with sugar. White 99 has a fresh, almost tropical aroma that is followed by a sweet citrus flavor that many describe as a Kush aftertaste. Strain connoisseurs that like both Indicas and Sativas will have a hard time passing up White 99.
To create Jack Flash strain, Sensi Seeds started out with their Jack Herer’s gene pool and then crossed it with Super Skunk and Haze. Jack Flash offers an earthy citrus aroma, impressive yields, and the active cerebral legacy of her Jack Herer parent. This hybrid gets its name from its lightning-fast onset which may prove useful to patients needing immediate symptom relief.
A sister plant to our Deadman OG, this hybrid uses a different example of the Mandarin on the same Deadhead OG mother plant. The results are more citrusy and less OG than the Deadman, bringing more of the Mandarin to the party. The uplifting Mandarin takes control of the majority of effects, as this is not a sedative strain at all — this one is social, active, and great for daytime use.
Northern Lights strain stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. Itself a descendant of indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains, Northern Lights has given rise to famous hybrids like Sour Diesel, Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Rumor has it that Northern Lights first sprouted near Seattle, Washington, but was propagated out of Holland after 1985 at what is now Sensi Seeds.
Lemon Kush is an effective hybrid strain with a 50:50 sativa/indica ratio with 26% THC content. It is actually a blend of Afghani Kush and Lemon G with a potent lemon flavor of its own. Its taste can be credited to the high amounts of Limonene found within the strain. But if you do plan to get your hands on Lemon Kush strain, it would be wise to buy some that is organically grown.
Light of Jah is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain whose name is often used interchangeably with Jack Herer, but may also refer to a Jack Herer and Afghani hybrid. This hybridized rendition still leans toward the sativa side with uplifting effects that fuel creativity and positive moods. Its flavor is a sweet combination of tropical fruit and hashy, pepperyspice.
Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with a taste of pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting sativa provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.
Strawberry Kush is sweet, strong and truly well-rounded. This strain certainly justifies its lineage and contains a musky artificial strawberry taste with a THC content of up to 23 percent. It is essentially found as a cross between the bitter OG Kush and the sugary Strawberry Cough and is mostly strong but not overwhelming.
