This heady skunk is a Canadian original, grown for decades on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. With top THC levels of 19%, it's a potent tool for treating low mood. Island Sweet Skunk smells and tastes exactly as its name implies: sweet and skunky. It also delivers aromatic hints of the tropics. This strain, which won a Canadian award at the High Times Cannabis Cup, is a sativa-dominant hybrid of original Skunk #1, a local California strain known as Sweet Skunk, and an unknown sativa. The sativa/indica ratio is 80:20. This strain is useful in relieving anxiety, depression, nausea, and pain. It can also help with nerve pain, migraines, arthritis, and GI disorders. Dry mouth is very common, but other adverse effects are limited. This strain is most popular in its home territory, British Columbia and Ontario, along with Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. It's much harder to find elsewhere. The cerebral high packs a major mood boost, with feelings of happiness and euphoria. It tends to promote energy and creativity, but there's also a mellow body effect that encourages relaxation.
The popular indica BC Grapefruit out of Canada was merged with the sativa Super Silver Haze to create this effective hybrid. The exact ratio of sativa to indica isn't widely reported, but the effects suggest the sativa genes won out. The high is primarily cerebral, with euphoria, a boost of energy, and a shot of creativity. The giggles are also common when using this strain. THC levels are relatively modest, topping 16-25% in available tests, so this is a good choice for part-time tokers and newcomers. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, migraines, and other headaches are among the best medical uses for Grapefruit Haze. But given the relative paucity of CBD, which makes up slightly less than 1%, this strain shouldn't be the first choice for treating seizures and other problems that are alleviated with CBD. Be prepared for the usual adverse effects, such as dry mouth and dry eyes, dizziness, anxiety, and limited paranoia. The flavor and smell of this strain are fruity with hints of spice, and the bud is green with orange hairs. Though not especially popular, Grapefruit Haze can be found along the West Coast from Los Angeles to British Columbia, and also in Arizona.
Ice Cream is an Indica dominant marijuana strain with an Indica/ Sativa content of 60/40 percent. It is hybrid cannabis produced by Paradise Seeds. It has dark green and long leaves. The strain has green colored buds with frosty trichomes and reddish hair. It is rated as grade A+ strain by most of the tokers. It has an indoor flowering period that ranges from 55 to 60 days and has a good yield of more than 500g/m2. It has a smooth smoke that feels quite good inside. It has a lovely sweet aroma that is similar to that of sweet candy ice cream. Its taste is excellent and makes you feel as if you are eating a smooth and creamy ice cream. It produces a buzz that affects your head and body equally and is quite strong. Ice cream is very potent cannabis so its THC level is expected to be moderate to high. The numbing sensation produced by the strain lasts for quite a while on your system. It is a good treatment for stress, anxiety, depression and loss of appetite. It is safe to smoke but tends to make your eyes and mouth quite dry. Some people experience dizziness, paranoia and anxiety after using it too.
This presumably sarcastic homage to the Bush-era security firm is actually highly useful as medicine, with applications in treating anxiety, low mood, migraines and other headaches, muscle spasms, nerve pain, and chronic bodily pain. Blackwater isn't especially popular among those who have tried it, but tests suggest a relatively high concentration of THC, topping at least 20%. Consistent CBD numbers are harder to come by, but that medical cannabinoid apparently makes up much less than 1% of this strain, which means Blackwater isn't recommended for seizures. This strain is overwhelmingly indica, with a sativa/indica ratio of about 10:90, which explains the intensely physical effects. It's the offspring of the legendary Mendocino Purps and San Fernando Valley OG, a sativa-dominant hybrid. Blackwater has a smell of sweet berries and an earthy flavor. The body high is deeply relaxing, with intense euphoria, psychoactive effects, couch-lock, sleepiness, and strong hunger. Negative effects aren't widely reported with this strain but probably include dry eyes and cottonmouth. Blackwater sells best in Colorado, the Pacific Northwest, and Arizona, though it may also come around on other legal markets as well as the black market.

Cheese, as it's also known, is perhaps the most famous marijuana strain to emerge from the British Isles. It is still more popular in the UK than anywhere else, although its fame has spread to many other parts of the world. English farmers created this strain by inbreeding Skunk #1, a sativa-dominant hybrid. UK Cheese itself is indica-dominant, with a sativa/indica ratio of 20:80, but the effects are balanced, delivering both a head and body high. It's a potent strain, with THC levels topping out at about 20%, and it's known to hit fast and hard. The effects are intensely euphoric, with an upbeat, happy mood, some laziness, and a dose of creativity. Best used to treat pain and stress, UK Cheese is also an effective way to alleviate insomnia and depression. CBD levels are low, less than 1%, so this isn't a good choice for patients with seizures or other disorders that respond to CBD. Cottonmouth and dry eyes are common side effects, and paranoia, headaches, and dizziness are also reported. Fittingly, this strain smells and tastes like cheese, with a pungent earthy aroma.
Purple God Bud is a blessing from the heavens above, a gift from the creator himself to the medical patients of the 21st century. Dense, dark-green and purple flowers and a healthy level of “bling” make it impossible to touch this medicinal strain without your fingers getting sticky. For many patients, she is a “one hitter quitter”, a strong, indica-dominant hybrid three-way cross of God, Hawaiian and Purple Skunk. Just like her effects, she smells and tastes strong, with pungent, skunky notes of soil and earth. She is especially great for evening use or right before bed as a nightcap. When asked if there is one strain you would take with you if eternally stranded on a deserted island, many patients would say God Bud. GB is a great alternative to the synthetic, anti-depressant drugs that are endorsed and commercially advertised by doctors, big business, the media, and even governments of the Western world. GB can produce feelings of euphoria and can greatly increase creativity. Patients that medicate to treat chronic pain, or suffer intense anxiety from high levels of stress also hold God Bud in high esteem. Combat veterans who suffer from PTSD can utilize GB to help alleviate night terrors and other sleep issues. Thankfully, she is not the forbidden fruit denied to mankind in the Beginning, but rather a current, natural remedy for a variety of debilitating symptoms.
Girl Scout Cookies is an indica-dominant hybrid with a strong sativa component (40:60 sativa/indica ratio). This strain can reach THC levels of up to 28%, meaning it's one of the most potent strains available to medical marijuana patients. This strain provides the best aspects of both sativa and indica, and the high is powerful, happy, and euphoric, but with couch-lock body effects and feelings of lethargy. Girl Scout Cookies tastes sweet and earthy, and it smells much the same. It's most effective at treating anxiety, stress, and depression, though it's also good for appetite. Dry mouth is the only likely adverse effect, though others are possible. This strain began as a crossbreed of OG Kush and a near-even hybrid; (Durban Poison X F1). Girl Scout Cookies first appeared in California and is now one of the most popular strains in North America, where sells best on the West Coast and in Michigan. The high lasts for hours, making Girl Scout Cookies a good deal in most places. It can be difficult to grow, but it's fast becoming a staple among home cultivators.
