Smoke This, Play That Vol. 4: Buddy & Kaytranada, Passion Pit, Oliver, and More

Greetings, fellow music lovers, and welcome the newest edition of Smoke This, Play That, where I get so high that I no longer know my name and listen to a bunch of music to find out what you should be playing through your speakers. This month is packed full of musical nutrients for the eardrums, so without further ado, here are my five album suggestions for this month. Enjoy!

Daniel Caesar – Freudian

[embedded content]

Daniel Caesar is a new kid out of Toronto with a very powerful, unique voice and sound. If I had to pick a comparison, I’d call him a baby Sampha, but his music really gives you a H.E.R. feeling in the way that it makes you long for something/someone who never existed. Freudian is audio nostalgia. If you’ve ever been in love, or fallen out of love, or just had a really good meal that you think about often, you will definitely cry to “Blessed.” Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


What Are the Side Effects of High-THC Cannabis?

Strain: Strawberry Cough

I like Strawberry Cough because I can smoke it and still make moves. It makes me feel upbeat and lively, which is why it pairs perfectly with Freudian. Even though the songs have such deep and meaningful messages, the sound of the album is still very upbeat and soul-capturing. The highs of THC combine with the highs of the music to form quite the holy matrimony. Love this strain, love this album.

Oliver – Full Circle

This is my favorite album on the list. It’s so damn good. I’d never heard of Oliver before, but I loved Full Circle so much that I’ll definitely listen to anything they put out from this moment forward. It’s one of those albums where the tracks transition between each other so well that if you’re high while listening, it’ll all blend into one long-ass song. I went on a walk to this album and once it ended, I realized that I’d walked five miles. That’s how lost you get in the music.


The Culture of a Legal Cannabis City: What’s It Like?

Strain: Dutchberry

I had Dutchberry back when I was in Seattle and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I LOVE this strain. Like, I want to date it. Dutchberry smells and burns like a fruit-flavored candle, tastes delicious, and feels like a cloud. The effects will have you low-key giddy and in an unexplainable good mood, just like Full Circle.

Buddy & Kaytranada – Ocean & Montana EP

[embedded content]

Buddy’s a young cat out of Compton who makes some of the best-feeling/most fun music I’ve heard in a really long time. He also really, really loves himself some cannabis. I mean, he made an entire song about looking for a lighter to spark his blunt. But him being on the list isn’t just about cannabis; this EP shoots 5/5 from the field. Produced by Kaytranada, Ocean & Montana is a trip through the mind of a young man who just wants to get high, chase women, and party with his friends. I don’t know about you, but that’s relatable content for me.


The Best and Worst Blunt Wrappers: A Definitive (and Completely Subjective) Ranking

Strain: Travel Joint

This EP is a trip through Buddy’s mind, so Travel Joint is a logical pairing. But in addition to that, Travel Joint is a fun strain, man. I smoked it in Las Vegas before taking a walk down the strip, and even though I was doing nothing, I still had a lot of fun. I credit the high for that. Plus, Buddy makes super fun music (give “A Lite” a listen), so he needs to be paired with a fun strain. Indulge in and enjoy both, my pals.

Tennyson & Mr. Carmack – Tuesday Wednesday Thursday

I checked out Tennyson while creating this month’s playlist and let me tell you, that boy makes some great music. Vibing out to his Like What EP lead me to Tuesday Wednesday Thursday, a joint project with Mad Decent producer Mr. Carmack. It’s only three songs, but you’ll definitely play it on repeat so many times that it’ll feel like a whole album. I’d describe T-W-TH as audio therapy. It’s mood-changing music that’s perfect for anyone who’s in a bad mood or just having one of those days where you can’t shake the bad vibes. Plus, there’s a BJ The Chicago Kid feature on “Thursday.” You can’t beat that.


Does Cannabis Make You Grumpy?

Strain: Fruity Pebbles

Fruity Pebbles sounds like a basic foo-foo strain, but don’t let the smooth taste fool you. It’ll hit you with a pretty strong high, and it lasts a while, too. I smoked a Fruity Pebbles pre-roll and the next thing I knew, I was dancing around downtown Seattle like ol’ boy in the Apple EarPods commercial for no discernible reason. This is why it pairs so well with Tuesday Wednesday Thursday. Much like the album, Fruity Pebbles is a mood-changer that’ll have you feeling relaxed and content.

Passion Pit – Tremendous Sea of Love

[embedded content]

This was my first introduction to Passion Pit and they are definitely worth the high. Tremendous Sea of Love has a big sound that only gets bigger as you get higher. I smoked a blunt of OG Kush to this, and by the end of the album, my hands were to the heavens and I was feeling all kinds of positive energy. I became one with the music. I was a human treble clef. Do yourself a favor: get stupid high, then go sit on some grass and let Tremendous Sea of Love play as you stare at the sunset. ‘Cause that’s exactly what it’ll make you feel like doing. It’s a true musical journey.


Tips for Growing OG Kush Cannabis

Strain: OG Kush

I know I’ve suggested this strain for past albums, but it’s what I smoked while determining if Tremendous Sea of Love was worth the high. I was a little tired before listening, but that OG hit me with a surge of energy that took the entire musical experience to the highest level.

Lastly, as always, I’ve composed an Apple Music playlist of newish songs for your next Walk ‘n Toke. Light up some fire, grab your headphones, and take a lap around the block to Smoke This, Play That Vol. 4: https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/smoke-this-play-that-vol-4/idpl.u-xlyNqJ3tXGb0yV

The 100 Cannabis Strains You Must Try Before You Die

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Central American

Panama Red is best described as an old-school cannabis classic. Originating from Panama, this pure sativa rose to stardom in the late 1960s thanks to its effects—speedy and intense, bordering on psychedelic. As cannabis cultivation matured, Panama Red, which has a lengthy flowering time of at least 11 weeks, was left behind for faster-growing strains and increased profits. However, those who fondly recall days of its prominence love its smooth experience and call for its revival. If you can get your hands on this sentimental throwback, do not hesitate.

“A classic cannabis strain and a piece of cannabis history, Panama Red remains a foundational element in the popularization of cannabis around the world.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Trainwreck, White Widow

Permafrost, bred by Rogue Buds, is named for its frosty coat of crystal trichomes and fresh pine aroma. While many believe Permafrost to be the love child of Trainwreck and White Widow, others claim it comes from Kali Mist and Trinity Snow. True to its hybrid genetics, Permafrost’s relaxing effects are balanced between mind and body. Larger doses demonstrate the strain’s potency: As sensory detail peaks, attention becomes transfixed, and a full-body calm takes over.

“Permafrost is awesome—a level-headed hybrid that elevates mood while focusing the mind, letting you keep your eye on the prize with a smile on your face.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Afghani

Pez is an indica daughter of Afghani and Pakistani strains. These sweet, frosty buds offer the relaxation and rich body buzz typical of indicas without the drowsiness, making it great for daytime use.

“Pez is a classic strain whose popularity is particularly rooted in the Seattle area. It emits a sweet, piney aroma and creates a happy, euphoric headspace and a calm body high.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: CheeseSkunk No. 1, Pineapple

Pineapple Chunk, bred by Barney’s Farm, is an indica-leaning hybrid that induces heavy full-body effects and a fast-paced head buzz. This THC-rich strain combines a Cheese and Skunk #1 cross with Barney’s Pineapple, and you can almost smell its lineage through sour notes of tangy skunk, earthy cheese, and sweet pineapple. Optimally, Pineapple Chunk will deliver a small dose of CBD along with its crushing THC content.

“A rich mix of genetics. Pineapple Chuck expresses itself with big chunky buds that get even better when you grind them up.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Trainwreck, Hawaiian

Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of its parent strains. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with an overarching flavor profile mixing pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting sativa-dominant hybrid provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.

“A hybrid strain so good, they made a movie about it.” —Bailey Rahn

“There’s a reason this strain is a fan favorite. The taste is delightfully tropical with a pleasantly mellow buzz that will leave you giggling, and it’s one of the more versatile strains, wonderful for both day and nighttime use.” —Lisa Rough

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: OG Kush

Pink Kush, as coveted as its illustrious relative, is an indica-dominant hybrid with powerful body-focused effects. In its most exceptional variations, pink hairs burst from bright green buds barely visible under a blanket of sugar-like trichomes, with traces of a sweet vanilla and candy perfume in the aroma. The potency of this strain could be considered overpowering, and often small doses are all you need. Growers have to wait 10 to 11 weeks for Pink Kush’s flowering, but high yields of top-shelf buds are worth the wait.

“For lovers of OG Kush (and there are plenty), this sugary-sweet strain begets body-focused effects and stress relief that are better than a massage.” —Brett Konen

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Black Cherry Soda, Space Queen

Plushberry is an 80% indica strain bred by TGA Seeds. The Black Cherry Soda lineage lends this strain an aromatic berry scent, while the Space Queen genetics promote heavy resin production. Plushberry induces a deep relaxation in the mind and body, with calming qualities that melt stress away. There are two main phenotypes of Plushberry: one that grows smaller, pink-tinted plants, and another with bulkier, more indica-like formations.

“One of my personal favorites. A functional indica that both relaxes and motivates alongside a sweet berry, floral flavor.” — Bailey Rahn

“Plushberry is an anomaly among indica strains: While heavily indica-dominant, it doesn’t put you to sleep or cloud your brain. Instead, Plushberry allows you to focus inward. You’ll find yourself pondering deep revelations about life and the universe, which inspires incredible conversations and thoughts.” —Lisa Rough

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Bubble Gum, OG Kush

Presidential OG by Royal Queen Seeds is an indica cross that definitely knows how to get your attention with its intense citrus-pine smell. As far as taste goes, it maintains the pine flavor and heads into more earthy terrain. Almost purely indica, this strain hits hard and fast with a sedative effect that make it a popular choice among consumers.

“The Commander in Chief of Kush strains offers heavyweight physical effects and rich earthy flavors suited for heads of state (and everyone else, too).” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Purple Thai, Haze

Popularized by Jimi Hendrix’s 1967 classic, Purple Haze delivers a dreamy burst of euphoria that brings veteran consumers back to their psychedelic heyday. This nostalgic sativa staple remains cherished for its high-energy cerebral stimulation that awakens creativity and blissful contentment. Purple Haze is believed to have descended from parent strains Purple Thai and Haze, which pass on a mix of sweet and earthy flavors underscored by notes of berry and sharp spice. Purple Haze buds typically acquire vibrant hues of lavender that justify the name of this strain.

“The classic! Its deep purple color is almost black, and it has a unique Haze flavor that’s just a little sweet. Always loved it for my migraines.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Mendocino Purps

Purple Urkle’s history is as complex as its flavor palate. A California strain, its origins are believed to stem from a select phenotype of Mendocino Purps, while its essence is a blend of skunk, berry, and fresh grape aromas and flavors. The quick-onset effects are deeply relaxing, sleep-inducing, and a great option for full-body bliss.

“A California strain, Purple Urkle grows into a candy-sweet flower entangled with purple hues. Its mix of berry and grape aromas captivate and lead to full-body relaxation.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: OG Kush, SFV OG Kush

Raskal OG smells of lemon and pine with a musty and grassy taste. Bred by Cali Connection, the THC levels range up to 17% and the CBD is up to 0.86%. With dense light and dark green colored buds, this sticky strain is soft when broken apart.

“A cross of OG Kush and SFV OG from SoCal breeder Raskal. Its intense fuel-like aroma mixes with flavors of lemon and citrus and makes for a great bong toke.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Haze, William’s Wonder

Red Headed Stranger is an energizing sativa strain named in homage to the 1975 album by Willie Nelson. A cross between Tom Hill’s Haze and William’s Wonder, Red Headed Stranger offers a jolt of cerebral vigor that fuels creativity and focus. True to its Haze heritage, RHS takes on a sharp spicy aroma with subtle herbal notes.

“A bright sativa strain that inspires creativity and conversation alongside its signature flavor.” —Bailey Rahn

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Haze, Afghani

S.A.G.E. stands for Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium. Generally containing over 20% THC, it took second place in the blind test at the 2001 Cannabis Cup. Spicy sandalwood flavors combined with a long-lasting, uplifting high make this a plant for those who like the best.

“A hybrid of potent sativa and Afghani genetics, SAGE combines polar opposites to create an exceptional strain.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Unknown

Schrom is a 70% sativa strain that delivers a clear-headed buzz with a pungent lemon and lime aroma. Its genetics are subject to debate, but many believe it was parented by Romulan and either Silver Haze or Santa Marta Colombian Gold. Its aroma fills the room with an enticing citrus bouquet, but arguably Schrom’s greatest merit is the mental clarity and functional buzz to come. Schrom relaxes the body without slowing the mind and leaves you alert enough to focus on the day’s tasks; however, enjoying this strain late in the evening may be even better.

“Another of my favorites. With a lemon-lime soda flavor, this is a light, uplifting strain that allows you to stay functional and active.” —Bailey Rahn

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: OG Kush

SFV OG by Cali Connection is a sativa-dominant hybrid. As the name indicates, this OG Kush relative originates from California’s San Fernando Valley. The flowers are fairly small and may not look impressive, but what this strain lacks in looks it makes up for in heavenly aroma. It’s best when consumed in a flower-friendly vaporizer.

“One of my favorite OG varietals. Its pungent piney flavor and sharp diesel aroma are nostalgic and makes me think of SoCal. Twist one up!” —Will Hyde


Firefly 2 vs. Pax 3: A Portable Vaporizer Comparison

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Unknown

From the island of Amami Oshima comes Shiatsu Kush, a powerful hybrid strain brought from Japan by BC Bud Depot. Bred in secret for potent relief of pain, tension, and stress, Shiatsu Kush has a sterling reputation in Japan’s cannabis underground. With an aromatic fusion of pine, vanilla, and cedar, Shiatsu Kush induces a heavy relaxation that calms the mind and body.

“A rising star, Shiatsu Kush is a meditative and centering strain that tenderizes the mind and soul.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: AfghaniAcapulco Gold, Colombian Gold

Skunk No. 1 (or Skunk #1) is a hybrid strain that has influenced cannabis on a global scale, parenting a horde of Skunk crosses since it first bloomed in the late 1970s. Sacred Seed Co. originally bred it using diverse genetics from around the world, which converged through an intricate selective breeding process that spanned several generations. Finally, the genetic cornerstone of countless cannabis hybrids was born. The original Skunk #1 gave rise to several variations that were later harvested in the gardens of Sensi Seeds, Dutch Passion, Flying Dutchmen, Nirvana Seeds, and Royal Queen Seeds. As its name suggests, Skunk #1 buds radiate with an aromatic blend of sour skunkiness and subtle earthy notes.

“Skunk #1 is a hybrid strain that has impacted cannabis on a global scale, parenting and influencing many modern varieties. The pungent skunky smell is undeniable and the heavy-hitting effects have made Skunk #1 a staple in Amsterdam coffeeshops and beyond.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Blue Dream, Master Kush

Hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg’s fame in the cannabis community is practically peerless. Given his status, Snoop’s Dream is a strain that has a big name to live up to—and this indica-dominant hybrid does not disappoint. The illustrious parent strains are purportedly two of the rapper’s favorites, and they beget sweet blueberry flavors and a pine aftertaste that takes over on the finish.

“A Blue Dream-Master Kush hybrid with a seal of approval from the Doggfather himself. This cross presents sweet blueberry flavors with a smooth Kush finish.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Unknown

This West Coast strain has developed quite a legacy for itself. Snowcap is a potent sativa with a gorgeous lemony scent backed by a hint of menthol. The effects are decidedly cerebral and should trigger creativity, happiness, and a case of the giggles. Believed to be a hybrid of Humboldt Snow and an unknown Haze, the poorly documented genetic history leaves some mystery surrounding Snowcap. One thing everyone can agree on is the all-around flavor and potency of this robust strain.

“Another West Coast classic. Snowcap is a potent sativa hybrid with an effervescent aroma, and I love its creative buzz and hazy cerebral effects.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Chemdawg 91, Super Skunk

Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain named for its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to reach legendary status. This strain took root in the early 90s, and it is believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.

“Perhaps the most popular sativa hybrid, Sour Diesel smells just like its name and promotes focus and productivity.” —Bailey Rahn

“I love dank, musty, skunky weed. I love when you get a whiff of a bag that is so stanky it immediately overrides all other priorities and replaces them with, ‘Find that bag and stick your nose in it.’ Sour Diesel tends to do that for me. It’s a weird strain; it’s got a weird genome. It’s weird like huffing jet fuel with a mouth full of Warheads would be weird. I like weird.” —Fermin Romero III

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Sour Diesel, OG Kush

Sour OG is a 50/50 hybrid strain that is a real favorite among those who love a balanced sativa/indica buzz. As a cross of two of the most popular and widely available strains in the world, Sour OG has been available in clone and seed form for quite some time. Most samples express dense, round, OG Kush-type buds laden with large, sticky trichomes. The odor and taste are usually an equal mix of both parents, with sour lemon, pine, and fuel notes accented by a distinct Kush undertone (though some versions have a more fruity flavor profile). Often described as a “one-hit-quit” strain, Sour OG starts with an energetic head high that gradually gives way to a relaxing body stone.

“Sour OG is a cross between two heavyweights, Sour Diesel and OG Kush. If you like either of those strains, definitely give this one a rip. The dank mix of diesel and pine create a rush of euphoria and flavor that will have you coming back time and time again.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Sour Diesel, NYC Diesel

Sour Tsunami is a strain famous for being one of the first specifically bred for high CBD content. The result is a wellness-focused strain that avoids producing a significant THC-induced high. Lawrence Ringo of the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective bred this strain over four years of hard work by crossing Sour Diesel plants with NYC Diesel.

“Sour Tsunami was bred specifically for its high CBD ratio, yet the sour and slightly tropical flavors stand out when compared to most other high-CBD varieties.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Romulan, Cinderella 99

Space Queen is a legendary hybrid created by famed breeder Vic High of the BC Growers Association. It begets a wide array of phenotypes, all of which possess great potency and some variation of a fruity aroma. The most sought-after of these is a large, resinous, high-yielding plant that smells of apples, vanilla and cherries, and has a delicious cherry taste when properly cured. Although it is a hybrid, Space Queen will give users an intense, trippy, speedy buzz that is characteristic of strong sativas.

“A really beautiful sativa hybrid with sweet earthy flavors and a true sativa kick to the mind.” —Will Hyde

“My go to for bad migraine days. Tastes like cherries and heaven.” —Natalie Bernstein

Strain type: Sativa

“An exceptionally delicious sativa that will have you exhaling a lungful of fresh strawberry flavor.”

—Bailey Rahn

“Strawberry Cough brings you an instantaneous rush of energy and euphoria. Great for making it though the day, whether you are a writer, a musician, or your average Joe.” —Gage Peake

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Strain name omitted due to copyright concerns.

Heir to the throne of its illustrious predecessor is Sunset Sherbet (sometimes spelled Sunset Sherbert), an indica-leaning hybrid with intoxicatingly potent effects. Sunset Sherbet inherits the genetic lineage of its powerhouse parent, whose parentage in turn includes the famed strains OG Kush, Cherry Pie, and Durban Poison. Crossed with an indica known as Pink Panties, Sunset Sherbet exhibits powerful full-body effects elevated by a jolt of cerebral energy. A complex aroma colors Sunset Sherbet with notes of skunky citrus, sweet berry, and a candy-like smell. Stress, tension, and sour moods melt away with the carefree mindset and physical relaxation that comes with this rich hybrid.

“Blissful, tranquil, and euphoric at once. This strain lives up to its name and gives everything a golden glow.” —Brett Konen

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Lemon Skunk, Super Silver Haze

A sativa-dominant hybrid and two time Cannabis Cup winner from Green House Seeds, Super Lemon Haze is a kief-caked, multi-colored wonder. As the name states, this strain has hefty lemony characteristics: The smell in particular is zesty, citrusy, and a little sweet. As for the taste, it’s everything one would expect from the namesake; tart and sweet like lemonheads candy, but not quite as sharp as one might expect. The effects, meanwhile, are uniquely energetic and lively.

“A classic with an additional citrus kick, bump this tasty strain to top of your list. Super Lemon Haze is colorful, terpy, and fantastic in every way.” —Brett Konen

“I like Super Lemon Haze for the creative, euphoric buzz I get from it. Sativas tend to make me feel a little anxious but with this strain I am happy and relaxed, especially in social situations. It also smells amazing!” —Emi Nellenbach

Super Silver Haze, bred by Green House Seeds, was the first prize winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999. It also won awards at the High Times Harvest Festival. By crossing the genetics of Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze, we are left with a beautiful, sticky sativa blend that boasts an energetic, long-lasting body high.

“A multi-award-winning sativa straight out of Holland, Super Silver Haze is a fragrant strain that fuels creativity and ensures unshakeable good moods.”—Bailey Rahn

“Like silver lining on a cloud, Super Silver Haze can reach deep into my soul and pull happiness to the surface. Great post-work strain to shift into social, goofy, energetic vibes and not get anything done but smile.” —Diana Rocha

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: OG Kush, SFV OG

Tahoe OG, or Tahoe OG Kush, is super-strong and fast-acting—so much so that you may not want to consume this strain if you’re planning to leave the house. Tahoe OG has made a name for itself among other indicas as a top nighttime strain, providing an extremely lazy, heavy body sensation. Due to superb breeding, Tahoe OG embodies all of the typical indica effects with an added euphoric, sativa-like kick. This strain features an earthy, lemon taste, and is a must-try phenotype of OG Kush.

“Tahoe OG is the perfect rainy day strain. It’s a stoney, heavy indica pheno of OG Kush with deep green hues and a tangible hint of sweetness.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strainsG13Afghani, Neville’s A5 Haze

This winner of the 2010 Cannabis Cup was created by the illustrious Barney’s Farm and is by all measures a strain for connoisseurs. Its ability to knock out physical discomfort while increasing energy is what makes Tangerine Dream so special, and while too much Tangerine Dream may leave you stuck on the couch, this strain was handcrafted to meet the demands of busy consumers. Uplifting and euphoric, it provides users with mental clarity while deeply relaxing the muscles.

“The orange citrus spark of Tangerine Dream will have you vibing with newfound energy. Its sweet finish will invariably make you want more.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strainsCalifornia OrangeSkunk

Tangie is another fantastic offering from DNA Genetics in Amsterdam that has quickly gained popularity in its home area and is spreading elsewhere like wildfire. This strain is a remake of sorts of the popular version of Tangerine Dream that was sought-after in the 1990s. This strain’s citrus heritage is most evident in its refreshing tangerine aroma, while its sticky buds provide euphoric yet relaxed effects.

“A high-energy sativa strain with unrivaled flavors of sweet citrus.” —Bailey Rahn

“A good Tangie flower has one of the most unique fragrances of any cannabis flower I’ve smelled. It’s incredibly citrusy, but not overly lemony. It’s got a very warm and well-rounded tangerine smell. It’s a great high. Not especially strong, but very friendly and uplifting.” —Kelly Bennett

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Mexican, Thai, Afghani

Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybrid with potent sativa-leaning effects that hit like a freight train. Classic sativas were bred with iconic indicas to produce this Northern California staple, and they pass on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma. Trainwreck begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening creativity and happiness.

“One of the quintessential sativa-dominant hybrids, Trainwreck’s intense rush of energy hits like a freight train.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Skunk No. 1

UK Cheese is a popular hybrid strain known for its potent, balanced effects and signature musty cheese smell. The flavor is also unique, with notes of berries and spicy cheese (a characteristic that may just have to be tasted rather than described). This strain is thought to be a specific phenotype (same genetics, different end result) of Skunk No. 1 that was originally cultivated in the early 1990s by a UK collective group known as Exodus. As a result, this strain is also known as Exodus Cheese. It became popular for its energetic, euphoric head effects combined with its impressive pain relief potential, and quickly spread beyond the borders of its British homeland.

“A UK strain with a unique, funky, and yep—you guessed it—“cheesy” aroma that’s definitely worth experiencing.” —Bailey Rahn

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Fire OG, The White

White Fire OG, also known as WiFi OG, is a 60% sativa hybrid with uplifting and comfortable cerebrally-focused effects. This strain combines the best features of its parent strains: the sour, earthy, diesel aroma of Fire OG and the high resin production of The White. Many phenotypes of White Fire OG exist, some with dense, barrel-like buds and others with pointed, conic formations.

“Also known as WiFi, White Fire OG is a super potent OG variety and is great when concentrated and dabbed! Its loud aroma and intense euphoria will provide a solid knockout combination.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: South American, South Indian Indica

Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. In the years since its birth in the 1990s, White Widow has graced every Dutch coffeeshop menu. Its buds are white with crystal resin, warning you of the potent effects to come. A powerful burst of euphoria and energy hit the consumer immediately, stimulating both conversation and creativity. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White RussianWhite Rhino, and Blue Widow.

“The potent and earthy resin-queen hailing from Amsterdam.” —Bailey Rahn

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Afghani

Willy’s Wonder, or William’s Wonder to the more formal, is one of those cannabis strains of legendary status that you’ll just have to try to fully appreciate. Indica-dominant, the flowers are colorful with all possible hues of green, yellow, and red. The strain’s aroma is an equally diverse mix of tropical fruit and citrus, all of which also come through in its sweet and sour taste. It was originally developed in the 1980s and has only grown in popularity and potency since then. New patients be warned, however: This strain may be one to work up to.

“Willy, as his friends call him, is an indica-dominant strain with a heavy Afghani influence. The bulbous buds and thick layer of trichomes will catch your eye, while the pungent, earthy notes and citrus flavors will captivate your senses.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Jack Herer, G13 Haze

XJ-13 is a sativa-dominant strain cherished for both its therapeutic potency and enjoyable euphoric buzz. This cross induces unencumbered cerebral effects perfect for stimulating creativity and conversation. As if we needed another reason to love this lightweight sativa, XJ-13 consistently exhibits a strong citrus aroma accented by notes of earthy pine. Novice consumers looking for an easy, paranoia-free experience can depend on XJ-13 as a surefire hit.

“Happy and functional, XJ-13’s lightweight effects should make it a mainstay in any active cannabis consumer’s collection.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Indica

Parent strains: Grape Ape, Grapefruit

Zkittlez is an indica-dominant mix of Grape Ape and Grapefruit that is crossed with another undisclosed strain to produce this candy-flavored cannabis bred by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz. The award-winning combination took 1st Place at the 2016 Emerald Cup and 1st Place Indica at the 2015 Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and in Michigan. Its chunky colas explode in a spectrum of light green hues and emit a sweet, tropical blend of fruit flavors. The effects of Zkittlez are surprisingly uplifting for an indica, leaving consumers focused, alert, and happy while relaxing the body to help the consumer unwind.

“A newer candied strain that has quickly become an award-winner. Zkittlez emits sweet, tropical, fruity smells and has sort of a berry flavor to it. The strain makes great rosin and is an absolutely delicious dab.” —Will Hyde

New Strains Alert: Golden State Banana, Golden Tiger, and More

We’ve got a little bit of everything in this week’s New Strains Alert, where we notify you of cannabis strains recently added to our database.

ACE Seeds shared two landrace strains from Central America and Africa. Both strains are sativa-dominant and offer powerful stimulating effects for those seeking a physical and mental boost. Mind your dose when it comes to especially potent sativas – but follow your bliss and anticipate powerful psychotropic effects.

Golden State Banana and Black Roses hold it down for indica lovers out there. With potent parent genetics like Ghost OG, Banana Kush, Grand Reserve Headband, and Early Girl, both strains harness familiar, robust genetics to create something new.

Of the two hybrids on the list, I am most excited about White Girl; Berry White and Girl Scout Cookies are exceptional strains on their own, but become greater than the sum of their parts when combined.

Leave a review for any of these strains you’ve tried, and roll on, baby!

Black Roses by Red Dirt Ridge Genetics is a heavy, one-hitter-quitter indica designed for the seasoned cannabis consumer. This cross of Grand Reserve Headband and Early Girl reeks of sweet citrus and funky fuel, intoxicating the sense even before combustion. Its effects lay into the body, evaporating stress from the mind while cementing the consumer to the couch. This heavy indica is a perfect end-of-the-day strain to wash away stress and worries or to frontload sleep with sedative cannabinoids.

Golden State Banana is a fruity indica cross of Ghost OG and Banana Kush. This semi-sedative strain fills the consumer’s mind with euphoria while wrapping the limbs in a warm, relaxing sensation. The aroma is a mixture of Ghost OG’s pungent, citrus terpenes and Banana Kush’s tropical scents, creating a rich bouquet with bright floral sweetness. Uplifting and relaxing, Golden State Banana’s effects are ideal for unwinding at the end of the day while elevating mood and frontloading creativity.

White Girl is a potent hybrid cross of two well-known cannabis strains, Berry White and Girl Scout Cookies. Its effects are middle-of-the-road, offering immediate mental elevation and creeping physical relaxation. This strain’s overall potency can be too much to handle for unseasoned smokers, so mind your dosage. White Girl’s terpene profile is herbal and woody, leaving a mild savory-sweet taste on the palate. Enjoy this hybrid to improve mood and stimulate appetite.


10 Cannabis Strains That Won’t Make You (As) Hungry

Honduras is a Central American landrace strain preserved by ACE Seeds. Its structure, flowering time, and overall appearance are reminiscent of old lowland Colombian strains while the effects and terpene profile are closer to Mexican sativas. The strain’s invigorating effects help stave off fatigue and lethargy, but can have overstimulating side effects for those prone to anxiety. Honduras’ aroma is tart and floral with a spicy finish.

Ethiopian by ACE Seeds is a classic subtropical African sativa. This landrace exemplifies classic sativa morphology with its tall, bushy structure, vigorous growth, and natural mold resistance. Its long flowering time pays off with excellent final yields. Ethiopian’s effects will be appreciated by sativa lovers looking for an active, sociable high that is focused and stimulating. The bouquet is a melange of fermented citrus, wood chips, and musk.


The Science of Sativa Cannabis Strains

Golden Tiger is a resinous flower created from two Thai strains and two separate Malawi cuts. Bred by ACE Seeds, this pure sativa flower is a complex blend of Koh Chang Thai and Hmong Thai crossed with Malawi and 3rd Generation Malawi. This powerful sativa is not for beginners, as it offers long-lasting stimulating effects often with a potent psychedelic bent. With a terpene profile that is bright with notes of floral spice and tart lemon, its vigorous physical and mental effects make this a sativa of the highest caliber. This strain’s long sativa lineage comes with a long 11 to 14 week flowering time.

Orient Express by ACE Seeds is a sativa-dominant hybrid with Asian lineage. Created by crossing Vietnam Black and China Yunnan, Orient Express has herbal, grassy aromas representative of the hot and humid forest floor in the dense rainforests of Southeast Asia. The effects are described as warm, clean, and pleasant and perfect for chatting and enjoying good company without paranoia or anxiety. With an average potency of 16% THC and an 8 to 10 week flowering time, Orient Express is an ideal option for new or seasoned gardeners.

Tailgating With Cannabis: 10 Strain and Product Must-Haves for Football Season

Finally, football season is in full swing. With it comes tailgating. And with tailgating comes cannabis, or ought to. If you’re not incorporating the herb into your football fan routine, you’re doing it wrong.

Seriously, does anyone actually want to be pounding Bud Lights at 10 in the morning? The answer (usually) is a resounding no—particularly when you can wake and bake instead. From infused barbecue and dipping sauces to a full-on football dab rig, add the following to your tailgating arsenal to have the best football season ever.


NFL Offers to Work With Players Union to Study Cannabis

Cannabis-Infused Popcorn

Sweet and savory options abound: lucky Cardinals fans with medical cards can get Sublime Caramel Popcorn or Karmel Korn from Arizona-based Cornucopia, while Chargers, Rams, Raiders, and 49ers fans can snack on California-based Korova’s White Cheddar Popcorn (careful—300mg THC per bag). Pro tip: If you want to avoid accidentally overconsuming delectable infused snacks like these, mix a sensible portion of THC-infused stuff with a non-infused counterpart, like Smartfood—and always be sure to label the bowl and set it well apart from non-infused snacks.

Team-Themed Strains

Seahawks fans can no longer call Marshawn Lynch their own, but they can still think fondly back to the days the city was shaken by the Beast Quake, with strains like the hybrid Beastmode OG or indica-leaning Beastmode 2.0. Raiders fans can hunt these down too, now that Lynch has signed a two-year contract with the team, as can football fans in Las Vegas as they watch and look forward to the Raiders’ move to their city in 2020. Fans of college football have strains to choose from, too—UW and WSU, for instance, both have strains associated with them. And regardless of the strain you’re hunting down, check dispensaries in the area for potential deals for fans—for example, 21+ Ducks fans and alums can score discounts at Phresh Start on the outskirts of Eugene.

Infused Barbecue Sauce

There’s a cannabis-infused barbecue recipe for everyone. Making chicken thighs or pulled pork? Barbecue chef Ryan Swartling has graced us all with original recipes he developed for Lemon Haze Barbecue Pulled Pork and Gochujang Hatch Pepper Sativa Barbecue Chicken. Love chicken wings? Make these ones, infused with Blue Dream. Simply want an easy sauce available for burgers, ribs, and more? Check out ready-made options like Oregon-based Wild Urban Edibles’ Wild Urban BBQ.

THC Dipping Sauces

No time to infuse the wings themselves? Dip them in a potent, savory sauce like the Ranch or Blue Cheese dressings from California-based GanjaEats (which also offers BBQ Sauce, Jalapeño Slices, and other tailgating necessaries).

Terpene Ales and Hemp Brews

While there’s no need to chug Bud Light, it doesn’t feel like a tailgate without a few brews. If you’re in California, keep an eye out for famously 420-friendly Lagunitas’ new SuperCritical Ale, brewed with cannabis terpenes in partnership with AbsoluteXtracts. It’s only available on tap in California for now (fill a growler if you’re in that state), but you can find other cannabis-minded beers in bottles, like this Two Flowers IPA, a CBD- and hemp-infused concoction from Oregon’s Coalition Brewing.

“Weed” Growler

For toting the aforementioned brews. We like the tongue-in-cheek, cannabis-themed ones sold by Weed Ales.

Mathematix Game Day Football Dab Rig

This eight-inch rig is small enough to be portable, themed for any team, and won’t break the bank (in case someone knocks it over after a few too many Lagunitas). Shop them here.


The Best Dab Rig for You

Disposable Vape Pens

A few of our favorites in legal states: Evolab’s Chroma Colors from Colorado (available in peach, pineapple, and blueberry, and brightly colored—sort of in Broncos colors—so you won’t lose them easily); Washington’s IONIC; Washington and Oregon’s sleek silver Quill; and California’s effects-based hmbldt pens (go for the Bliss version).

Glass With Team Spirit

You can find pipes, bongs, dab rigs, and pretty much any other themed accessories you could desire sprinkled throughout local dispensaries, sold by online head shops, or available from individual sellers on Etsy.

Cannabis Coffees and Cocoas

For a.m. tailgates, a combo of cannabis and caffeine is the way to go. While some infused hot coffee options leave a lot to be desired in terms of flavor (and often in terms of effects), cold brews tend to be better. Favorites include (for Washington and Oregon footballers) Mirth Provisions’ sativa-infused Legal Coffee Mocha and (for California fans) SF-based Somatik. If you prefer something that’ll keep you warm as the season gets colder, check out cannabis hot cocoa options like Skyline Boulevard Co. Cannabis Hot Cocoa Mix or Ganja Grindz Hot Cocoa Brew Cups (or make your own with our cannabis-medicated Mexican hot chocolate recipe).

New Strains Alert: Chocolate Rain, Zamaldelica, Oldtimer’s Haze, and More

Welcome back to Leafly’s New Strains Alert! This week we are adding some old world sativas and a collection of hybrids.

Zamaldelica and Afrikaner come from the home of some of the most stimulating sativas ever collected. African landrace sativas like Zamaldelica grow tall, bushy plants that can carry natural resistances to their native climate and pests. These types of plants also take a few extra weeks to flower, but patient growers are generally rewarded with large spear-like colas and bright terpene profiles.

Chocolate Rain and Chicle are good examples of the mixed effects central to cannabis hybrids. Chocolate Rain leans on chocolatey foundational genetics from both sides of the cannabis spectrum to amplify a specific flavor and aroma while gathering contrasting physical effects from both parents.

If you’ve had a chance to try these strains or others, write a review and give the cannabis community a little insight into the flowers of your medical or adult-use state.

Oldtimer’s Haze is a semi-stable old school Haze varietal from the 60s and 70s. This strain survived for decades with the help of Oldtimer, a British cannabis breeder, and has since gone on to influence famous buds like Purple Haze and Green Haze. While the genetic background of this strain is ambiguous, it remains one of Ace Seeds’ most sought after cultivars. Oldtimer’s Haze offers stimulating effects and aromas that speak to the heady, spicy buds of yesteryear.


The Best Cannabis Strains for Focus and ADD/ADHD

Violeta by Ace Seeds is an indica-dominant hybrid cross of two deliciously purple strains. Its vibrant colors and balanced effects were brought to life by pairing Purple Malawi, a deep purple expression of the African sativa crossed with Pakistan Chitral Kush. Violeta’s aroma is nearly as unique as its appearance, with a bouquet of balsamic vinegar and tree fruit. The stoney effects and medium potency of this strain make it a pleasant cannabis variety any time of the day.

Zamaldelica by Ace Seeds is a potent sativa-dominant strain from La Reunion Island near Madagascar. It is a cross of Zamal and Golden Tiger, and is famous for its heady, psychedelic effects and powerful physical vigor. The bright, spear-like colas are wrapped in red hairs and express a unique aroma of sweet carrot, mango, and citrus. This strain’s powerful mental effects leave the mind soaring and could overwhelm the uninitiated sativa consumer. Zamaldelica has an extended flowering period of approximately 11 to 14 weeks.


Cannabis Evolution: What Do We Know About the Plant’s Earliest Origins?

Chocolate Rain by Eskobar Seeds is a flavorful mashup of exceptional genetic stock from two exceptional breeders. An indica-dominant hybrid cross of DNA Genetics’ Chocolope and DJ Short’s Cocoa Kush, this twice-deep chocolate pairing emits a bittersweet cocoa aroma with touches of blueberry and floral Kush notes on the finish. The strain’s effects are balanced, offering happy, relaxing mental and physical effects that aren’t overwhelming. Chocolate Rain has a decent yield and an average 9 to 10 week flowering period.

Afrikaner by Cannabaal and master grower Waldo Botha is a pure South African landrace strain. This tall strain produces high levels of THCV alongside a healthy 20% THC content. It has an earthy hemp aroma, but the flavor is a “sweet picante weed stench,” or so says the producer. A pure sativa, Afrikaner energizes the body with a euphoric lust for life while keeping the mind fairly clear. Utilize this strain in the proper dosage to harness the physical stimulation and mood elevation for productive means.


What Is THCV and What Are the Benefits of This Cannabinoid?

Chicle (aka Bubbledawg) by T.H. Seeds is an award-winning flower with plentiful resin production. This commonsense cross of Bubble Gum and Chemdawg yields beautiful green buds knotted in copper hairs and covered in glittering resin. This flower’s large resin glands and vigorous growth make it ideal for producing hash or cannabis concentrates. Chicle won 1st place Resin at 2015 Expogrow in Irun, Spain as well as 3rd place Resin at the Spannabis Champions Cup in Barcelona. Chicle’s bouquet is a mixture of sweet Bubblegum and fuel-forward terpenes.

Mendocino Madness is the fastest growing hybrid in the T.H. Seeds catalog. This speedy, generous flower is a pest-resistant cross of Madness (from Northern California) and T.H. Seed’s Kwiksilver father. Mendocino Madness expresses purple foliage and finishes in approximately seven weeks, making this an ideal outdoor plant, especially with its natural insect resistance. Its hybrid effects fuel a stimulated mental state that bursts through the body, leaving relaxation in the limbs. Enjoy Mendocino Madness to improve mood and relinquish stress.

New Strains Alert: Mendo Afgoo, Magnificent Mile, White Tygh Dream, and More

Welcome back to Leafly’s New Strains Alert! This week we have two landrace strains from Afghanistan and Iran, three twice-deep genetic crosses, and much more.

Magnificent Mile and White Tygh Dream are indica-dominant transplants from the homeland of some of the world’s oldest cannabis genetics. As a strain hunter and all-around lover of cannabis, it’s nice to see growers seeking out and preserving old world genetics as a touchstone to the long history of this noble flower. These acts of preservation are one of the few ways cannabis consumers can share in the unique flavors and effects of geographically specific strains without a plane or passport.


The Cannabis Origin: What Is a Landrace Strain?

MC1, Purple Raine, and WTF blend a series of strains together to achieve their unique effects. Many crosses are created to isolate specific flavors or effects, while others are an exciting genetic gamble with the possibility to produce something totally unexpected.

But that’s not all! Find these strains and more right here on Leafly.com, and as always, if you’ve had the pleasure of any of these funky flowers, leave a review and help inform the community.

Happy Labor Day!

MC1 was gifted to Subcool of TGA Genetics in seed form. Sadly, while the strain was making its way to Subcool, the breeder (MC1) was killed in an accident. Ten seeds were then given to Urb_Man to pheno hunt and one stood out amongst the seven females that sprouted. This singular flower was worthy of carrying on the breeder’s name and rarely appears across the West Coast. MC1 is a cross of OG KushSour Diesel, and Arcata Trainwreck.

Magnificent Mile by Ataraxia is an Iranian landrace propagated in the great state of Illinois. This heavy bud grow dense flower speckled with vivid hues of purple and orange. The strain’s aroma is a mixture of earthy spice and diesel while the effects lay into the body, helping mitigate pain, stress, and restlessness. Magnificent Mile gets its name from Chicago’s own “Magnificent Mile” stretch of Michigan Avenue, which is known for its opulent skyscrapers and twinkling city lights.

The Gift is a Ringo’s Gift backcross created from seeds gifted to UV Organics by Lawrence Ringo’s son. This potent CBD-dominant hybrid offers a slight bent on the original Ringo’s Gift genetics in terms of flavor and aroma while keeping its robust cannabinoid profile intact. The Gift creates massive CBD/THC ratios like its forebear, but offers sweeter, fruit-forward notes that contrast against the foresty bouquet of Ringo’s Gift. This strain is ideal for consumers seeking calming, anti-inflammatory effects without much headiness due to its nearly nonexistent THC content.

Mendo Afgoo is an unknown cross that has recently sprouted up on menus in cannabis dispensaries up and down the West Coast. The genetics are somewhat contested, with some claiming the strain is an Afgooey rebranded and others inferring parental genetics via nomenclature (Mendocino Madness x Afghani). The effects of the strain uplift the mind while saddling the body with a creeping heaviness. Mendo Afgoo is pungent and earthy, expressing deep green buds with coppery hair. Its stress-relieving effects make it a natural fit for the end of the day.

Purple Raine is an indica-dominant hybrid cross of Purple Candy Kush x OG Kush x Chemdawg. This strain was bred by Taylor Lane Farms exclusively for 831 Organiks in the Summer of 2015 and is bursting with sweet, fruity aromas. Its genetics are built around potency and euphoria, leading to a heady rush of THC that naturally cascades over the body. Enjoy Purple Raine later in the evening to maximize the physical enjoyment this strain has in store.

WTF by White Tygh Farms is an odd cross of CBD-dominant genetics that sprouted a THC-dominant flower. Naturally, White Tygh Farms exclaimed, “WTF!” and thus the strain was born. This cross of HarlequinSour Tsunami, and Cannatonic leans on recessive genetic qualities that are easy on the body while energizing the mind. Master grower Cole Fritcher had difficulty describing the aroma, but articulated its oddity and uniqueness with pride. Think Tang powder sweetened with essence of blueberries and composted earth. WTF hits mid-level in terms of potency while helping to soothe anxiety and minor physical pain.

White Tygh Dream is White Tygh Farms’ flagship strain. This Afghani landrace was planted and meticulously cultivated in Oregon’s Tygh Valley, and it’s said to possess archetypal indica-dominant effects and outstanding potency. White Tyge Dream emits a well-rounded bouquet of citrus and earthen, floral notes with a clean, savory finish. This strain has been utilized for minor pain, insomnia, anxiety, and stress, and will inevitably lead you closer to rest with continued consumption.
