Everyone involved was (is) considered a criminal for now... but they are modern-day medicine men to all of us.
Looking back over the past decade or two, many top weed strains have come and gone to then be lost forever in the depths of time. We compiled a list of the most notable weed strains that are tried-and-true heavy hitters across the globe. No matter if you are smoking with a pipe, bong, or rolling a joint each strain will affect you differently.

You don't have to be a member of the community to have heard the name "OG Kush." Ocean grown, or OG Kush, has rooted itself in history which varies depends which breeders you're talking to. No matter WHO started the first one, the OG Kush strain is the mother to a plethora of other heavy hitters around today.
Stress reducing and uplifting, this strain will also help to knock out what pain that might be lingering as well. Patients also turn to this strain to help manage depression and other neuropsychiatric issues they might be dealing with. Rising to fame in the mid nineties and remaining popular even till today. Smelling potently of lemony pine, OG Kush packs a punch in more ways than one. The Veteran smokers continue to love it and the newcomers learn to love it, and that's the truth.
Purple weed is real, in case you're a rather new to bud.. and Granddaddy Purple, or GDP for short, is like a calm weighted blanket that you didn't know you needed. Since 2003, GDP has been leaving users hypnotized by its purple hue and orange hairs that convince so many consumers to return again and again; Granddaddy Purple is as good as cannabis indica has to offer. Patients often choose Granddaddy Purple for a variety of issues they have to go through, including muscle spasms, pain, stress, and others ailments.

Those to have enjoyed the rare and exciting Acapulco Gold cherish their memories of it. It's powerful, yet calm. Being a sativa dominant strain gives hint to its energizing cerebral effects, but users are relieved to notice a calming effect on your body as you go on and enjoy your day. Acapulco Gold originates from Acapulco, Mexico, and is becoming increasingly harder to find in the states and local dispensaries. So if you find some, give this legendary strain a go!
Hindu Kush is a purely original Indica. Giving most other kush strains its name, Hindu Kush has been around and impressing consumers with its remarkable ability to crush stress and depression; patients also will note that Hindu Kush helps them to feel less pain throughout the day.
