The effect you receive when smoking weed, largely depends on the specific strains you are actually smoking. Many people are unaware that the weed you are soking has it’s own specific strain, and that each person has a strain that suits their body. Ever heard a friend of yours say “Nah man i’m not gonna have a toke, weed f**ks me up man” or something along those lines? Well more often than not, the ones who say those things are the ones who have never found the right strain for themselves.
It can be hard to find that exact strain that is for you, however there are quite a few strains that seem to work well for everybody – depending on whether they’re Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis or a Hybrid (please read this post before carrying on if you’re unsure what this means). Here is a small list of the most universally smoked strains, how to distinguish them, and what they can do for you.
The Best Universal Cannabis Strains
A Balanced Hybrid between Brazilian Sativa and South Indian Indica which when smoked, induces a euphoric state of mind and boosts energy. Then stimulating creativity and conversation in the process. White Widow was created in the mid to late 1990’s and was liked for it’s quick harvest time. Almost all Dutch Coffee Shops now have White Widow as a staple.
Purple Haze consumption skyrocketed when Jimi Hendrix’s 1970 smash hit by the same name arose. Shortly after, it became known that the Sativa strain would leave you with an extremely euphoric feeling and high energy. Which in turn stimulates creativity in the mind and contentment in the soul. The best thing about Purple Haze is that the matured buds have a violent lavender colour about them. This means that they’re not only easy to tell from the rest of strains, but they’re also extremely visually pleasing.
All bud on the West Coast(of America) genetically strings from the potent, hybrid strain OG Kush. However its genetic origins still remain a mystery. Urban myths state that OG Kush stems from Chemdawg and Hindu Kush however, we can’t be sure. OG Kush has a strong ability to insight heavy euphoria and carries an earthy pine and sour lemon scent. OG Kush is also well-known to greatly help with migraines, ADD/ADHD, and multiple stress disorders.
This Sativa strain derived from South Asian and Jamaican landrace strains is one strain almost certain to put a smile on your dile. With it’s taste of lemons and citrus, It gives a soothing, uplifting, energizing buzz effect once you smoke it. Winner of the Cannabis Cup in 2004, and again in 2012 for best Sativa Strain.
