New Strains Alert: White Chocolate, Tangerine Trainwreck Haze, and More

This week’s New Strains Alert has a little bit of everything. The Cali Connection riffs on Sour Diesel’s past and future with their strain, OG Sour Diesel. This cross of Sour OG and an East Coast Sour Diesel precursor shows the history and progression of one of the world’s most well-known strains. Good as Gold stopped by and shared a couple new OG strains, including Air Jordan OG and Allen Iverson OG. Tangerine Trainwreck Haze by Rare Dankness synthesizes unique and potent genetics, amplifying Trainwreck‘s  exhilarating effects while deepening the exotic flavors and aromas of this sativa-dominant flower.

If you have had the pleasure of trying any of these genetic crosses, leave a review and let the community known how your experience went. New crosses arrive all the time, so stay tuned and stay lifted.

OG Sour Diesel by The Cali Connection is a riff on where Sour Diesel has been and where it is going. By combining Sour OG and Cali Connection’s East Coast Sour Diesel precursor, OG Sour Diesel adopts the historical ECSD lineage while offering a nod to the West Coast’s tradition of Kush-heavy crosses. The fuel aroma the buds emit is intense and astringent. The long-lasting cerebral effects mute stress without encumbering the body.

Tangerine Trainwreck Haze is another beautiful cut by Rare Dankness Seeds. Created by crossing Tangerine Haze and Nevil’s Wreck, Tangerine Trainwreck Haze expresses bright green and orange buds knotted in red hairs. These buds explode with spicy tropical aromas that hold touches of citrus, fuel, cracked pepper, and musk. Tangerine Trainwreck Haze requires a little extra time, but has been known to fill out all available canopy space, offering a generous yield to the attentive gardener.

Cherry Slyder is a balanced hybrid cross of Northern Lights #4 and Afghani. It offers a sweet, fruit-forward flavor accompanied by earthy, woody notes that speak to the strain’s Afghani genetics. The effects are relaxing without being overly weighted, helping consumers stimulate appetite while discarding anxiety and stress. The effect remains functional while taking the edge off repetitive tasks or chores.

Chem Jack is the common sense cross of Chemdawg and Jack Herer. This sativa-dominant hybrid expresses lime green buds with dark brown pistils. Its buds smell sweet and herbal while the taste of the smoke is intensely piney, bordering on chemical. The effects are centered and relaxing, helping consumers shrug off stress and improve mood. Chem Jack can push 25% THC, so mind your dosage. Chem Jack’s functional buzz can become whimsical and moderately sedating with continued consumption.

White Chocolate by Sin City Seeds is a sweet, sativa-dominant hybrid. This strain is a cross between Chocolope and White Moonshine. It offers a wide range of flavors, from melon rind and cherry to pronounced notes of herbs and spices. White Chocolate jumpstarts creativity whiling contributing a warm, stimulating buzz to the body. This plant’s manageable growth and exotic aromas make it a treat to cultivate and a pleasure to consume.

Air Jordan OG, grown exclusively by Good as Gold in California, is a pure indica strain that packs a punch. Don’t let the name fool you: Air Jordan OG’s potent, sedating effects will have you melting deep into the couch, priming you for a nap or good night’s sleep. This strain delivers its sleepy, relaxing effects with sharp aromas of wood and fresh pine.

Smoke This, Play That Vol. 2: Phoenix, 2 Chainz, Calvin Harris, and More Summer Sounds

When it comes to Smoke This, Play That, I have a specific vibe I want you to feel. I want you to fall into the sunken place of the music. I want you to get high as fuck, close your eyes, and let the THC take hold of your soul while directing through an entire album. This isn’t just some “Yo, let that album run one time for the one time” shit. Oh no. Oh. No. I not only want you to hear the music, I want you to damn near become one with the music. Because that’s how I feel when I’m high as hell, blasting a new album.

So grab your preferred smoking device, and explore the following strain + album pairings.

2 Chainz – Pretty Girls Like Trap Music

[embedded content]

When: ALWAYS

Where: EVERYWHERE

2 Chainz has been one my favorite rappers since 2010, and this is the project I always wanted from him. My god, it’s soooooooo good. The lyrics, the features, the songs, the vibe, the production, the everything is sooooo perfect. Ask me and I’d say it’s the best rap project to come out this year, YEAH I SAID IT KENDRICK STANS. Any time I see an album with over 12 songs, I instantly get tired. But the commitment of time is so worth it for Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. If you need me, I’ll be somewhere blasting “Sleep When U Die” like I’m not still going to get my eight hours per night.

Strain: OG Kush

OG Kush is 2 Chainz’ favorite strain, and there’s even a song on the album called “OG Kush Diet.” I mean, come on. This is a no-brainer.

Mali Music – The Transition of Mali Music

[embedded content]
When: 7:19 a.m.

Where: At home as you get ready for the day/on the way to work. It’s one of those albums that’ll have you feeling mighty powerful for no reason.

I stumbled across Mali Music while surfing the New Music section of Apple Music, and I’m so happy I did. He’s an incredible R&B artist who apparently has the Jhene Aiko cosign. You play his music and it has a new school feel with an old school voice. Like, you can really really hear the soul in Mali Music’s voice. He has one of those raspy-ass voices that mixes so well with the melodies, one of those voices that makes you stand up like “BOY YOU BETTA SING.” I bet he goes hard live.

Strain: Lemon Haze

Let me just say that Lemon Haze sounds like a playful strain, but the high it creates is anything but a game. I was soooo high the first time I smoked it, which coincidentally was the first time I ran through The Transition of Mali Music, and boy oh boy were they a perfect combo. I was so in tune with the music that it felt like I was catching the Holy Ghost. Smoke a blunt of Lemon Haze, play “Gonna Be Alright,” and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

Sango – De Mim, Pra Você

[embedded content]
When: 11:27 p.m.

Where: In a classic house party/club environment. One where everybody’s just sweaty and grindin’ against any and everything possible. Where the air just smells of cannabis, must, and sexual energy. Yeah.

I love a good instrumental album. Sango is a producer whose sound is something I’ve never heard before. Categorized as electronic, I’d call his album more of something like…hmmm…Island Twerk Tunes. It sounds like a party. You play some Sango and it’s physically impossible to stay in your chair. It’s the perfect album for people who likes to sit back and sink into the music. Toss on your white linen pants, get high, and let your feet and hips do the talking.

Strain: Island Haze

Island jams need island strains. You want something that smells like carefree living and tastes like the sun. Something that reminds you of drinking margaritas out of a pineapple while the worries of the world fall from your shoulders. Island Haze is what you need. It tastes and smokes exactly like Sango’s music sounds/feels.

Phoenix – Ti Amo

[embedded content]

When: 3:18 p.m.

Where: In the car, with the sunroof open, on your way to a different city for a weekend vacation

Lately, my favorite genre of music has been Alternative. When I saw this album pop up under that section in Apple Music, I figured “Ehhh, let’s see.” Thank God I did. Phoenix goes extremely hard. It’s another album that you listen to with your heart, not your ears. You have absolutely no clue what they’re saying, but you know they’re definitely going off because you find yourself lost in every single beat.

Strain: Alien OG

This album sounds like some spacey ass robot conversation mixed over a bunch of feel-good-about-life beats. For that, you need something that’ll make you space out for the entire 30-40 minutes it’s playing. Alien OG has your back there. It’ll smack you right in the eyelids, spread to your entire face, and next thing you know, you can no longer feel your arms. But you can feel Ti Amo, that’s a promise.

H.E.R. – H.E.R., Vol. 2

[embedded content]

When: 2:43 a.m.

Where: By the fireplace of a castle living room, wearing a robe and smoking a churchwarden pipe as you sink into the depths of your heart’s desires. Ya know, some movie scene shit.

I wrote about H.E.R’s first project from 2016 last month, not knowing that she had a new project coming this month. It was the most pleasant surprise. She’s back and she’s even better.

Picture this: you know that feeling when you miss something/someone, but you aren’t exactly sure who/what the something/one is? You just know there’s a hole there, and you have to fill it someway, somehow? That’s what H.E.R. sounds like. Vol. 1 made me miss things that I never had; Vol. 2 doubles down on it. And I love it. H.E.R.’s music is deep, meaningful, and connects with a part of you that you didn’t know was there. It’s musical nostalgia.

Calvin Harris – Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1

[embedded content]

When: On a Sunday Funday

Where: On a boat in 97-degree weather with champagne-infused beverages by the plenty

Dog, I am so sorry for sleeping on Calvin Harris. I really thought he made “Woody from Toy Story“-type tunes. Just some ol’ boy bandy, pop BS that I’d never let flow through the Bose, but boy oh boy, I was WRONG. I’m man enough to admit that because Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is, dare I say, the SOUND of the summer? It is. I’m also not the person to decide that, but if you think I won’t two-step next to the ocean with three joints in my mouth to “Slide” at some point this summer…well…you’re probably right. But the album is damn good.

The Leafly Guide to Pairing Cannabis With Herbs and Spices

We all know that herbs and spices are the building blocks of a flavorful dish. In your kitchen right now, you likely have an array of them, from basil and sage to cinnamon and black pepper, at the ready to punch up even the blandest of meals.

What you may not know is that herbs and spices owe their flavors (and even some of their health benefits) to terpenes—just like cannabis does. With some freshly ground black pepper (which gets most of its kick from the terpene caryophyllene), you’re ready to enjoy a delicious chicken wing or pile of roasted potatoes bursting with flavor; with a few sprigs of thyme (which owes a portion of its fragrance to the terpene myrcene), you’ve taken your bruschetta to the next level.

With so many options at your fingertips, we’ve created the following easily-referenced pairing guide to help you elevate your food with cannabis, whether via infusion or via consumption alongside the meal. Print it out, post it in your kitchen, reference it often, and enjoy the pairings!

*Note: Specific volumes of cannabis tincture are not included due to the fact that tincture potency can vary incredibly widely—10mg may mean anything from a few drops to a whole dropper-full. Always familiarize yourself with the potency of your tincture before adding it to beverages or food—the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your tincture and the potency you desire. The best way to verify potency is to start with one portion of a drink or meal, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis or alcohol.

Tips for Growing Green Crack Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: A member of the Skunk family, Green Crack is a popular sativa-dominant variety. Its distinctive lime green color and citrus smell make it an easily recognizable strain. A daytime favorite due to its invigorating effects, Green Crack is ideal for fighting fatigue and stress while inspiring creativity.

Grow Techniques: Green Crack will grow tall and fast before it begins to flower. Be on top of your trellising, as you want to be prepared for buds that develop quickly over a short flowering period. Green Crack does well outdoors in healthy soils with lots of space for roots to develop.

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow Difficulty: Easy

Climate: Prefers mild to warm climates between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: Green Crack performs exceptionally well outdoors where the plant can take off and fill space. It has an extremely strong smell that hangs around even during harsh outdoor weather. This sativa is also popular indoors as its flowering cycle is so rapid, it leads to more harvests annually.

Feeding: Start feeding with lots of phosphorus early on in the flowering stage to make sure the buds get enough food before harvest.

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

“There’s weed that don’t make you hungry? For real? Honey, this changes everything.”

That was my Lyft driver’s response when I told her not all cannabis makes your gullet an insatiable black hole. Most cannabis consumers – especially first-time experimenters – have only tried high-THC strains, so it’s no wonder that the dispelling of this common misconception comes to the surprise of many who have long associated cannabis with the inevitable “munchies” syndrome.

The munchies can be a beautiful thing, and I’m not just talking about the pure ecstasy that comes with dual-wielding a fried chicken leg and an ice cream sandwich once in a while. That appetite stimulation is life-changing for patients dealing with cancer, depression, and other gastrointestinal/appetite disorders. But not everyone wants uncontrollable food lust, and some will actively avoid cannabis because of this one side effect – particularly those struggling with pre-existing eating and weight issues.

For those of you interested in reaping the myriad of benefits cannabis has to offer without the unbridled gluttony, we hope you find this list helpful. Remember, you can click the strain to see if it’s available at a store or dispensary near you!

The Science of Munchies: Why Does Cannabis Stimulate Your Appetite?

High-CBD Strains

If you’ve ever tried a high-CBD strain before, you’ve probably noticed that they don’t summon the munchies monster like THC-rich varieties. A Yale study published last year found that THC – the same chemical responsible for cannabis’ euphoric high – stimulated a group of nerve cells in the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that governs instincts like hunger and arousal.

What are High CBD Cannabis Strains and How Do They Differ from High THC Strains?

While less is known about CBD’s influence on appetite, we do know that this non-psychoactive constituent counteracts many effects of THC and researchers have even eyed CBD as an anti-obesity treatment based on its activity in the brain. Our own anecdotal evidence leads us to recommend high-CBD, low-THC strains for the best “munchie-less” experience, but a strain with equal parts CBD and THC can also induce less hunger with the added benefit of mild euphoria.

Which Cannabis Strains are High in CBD?

Leafly "Harle-Tsu" hybrid cannabis strain tile and effects bar

A popular strain found in many Oregon shops, Harle-Tsu is hybrid cross between two high-CBD parents, Harlequin and Sour Tsunami (which are also worth looking into for minimal munchies strains). Harle-Tsu typically expresses a high-CBD profile with very little THC, making it a perfect choice for anyone who wants the relaxing and therapeutic effects of cannabis minus the euphoria or paranoia.

Leafly "Remedy" indica cannabis strain tile and effects bar

The “Remedy” for your over-excited appetite is this indica cross between Cannatonic and Afghan Skunk. With a THC content that rarely squeaks past 1%, Remedy delivers mental tranquility and physical relief without the psychoactive burden. This Pacific Northwest strain is perfect for the patient needing to curb pain, anxiety, tension, headaches, or insomnia, but doesn’t want to interrupt their day with hourly snack breaks.

Leafly "Canna-Tsu" hybrid cannabis strain tile and effects bar

Canna-Tsu is taking off across the U.S., discoverable in Oregon, California, Illinois, Washington, Colorado, and many other medical marijuana states. Sweet and earthy in flavor, Canna-Tsu provides a boost to both mood and focus. Though this strain may calm upset tummies, you shouldn’t feel any extra rumblings of hunger.

Leafly "MediHaze" sativa cannabis strain tile and effects bar

For uncompromised energy and clarity, we recommend the low-munchies sativa MediHaze. This one can sometimes exhibit equal levels of THC and CBD, but compared to high-THC, low-CBD strains, MediHaze is much better for keeping the appetite at bay.

Leafly "Cannatonic" hybrid cannabis strain tile and effects bar

Similar to the widely coveted ACDC hybrid, Cannatonic is a high-CBD strain that relaxes the body while leaving the mind free to focus. On average, Cannatonic has a 2:1 ratio of CBD:THC, meaning you probably won’t feel much in the way of a high or hunger.

High THCV Sativa Strains

By now you know what THC and CBD is, but you may not be familiar with the less ubiquitous THCV, a related chemical that suppresses appetite. While most strains on the market today tend to test anywhere between 10-20% THC, what’s considered a high THCV content might only hit a high-water mark of 5%. THCV tends to be more abundant in sativa strains, and it’s possible you’ve noticed that sativas tend to provoke hunger less than indica strains. The unique metabolic effects of THCV even have researchers considering its utility in treating obesity and diabetes.

[LINK]

While high-CBD strains tend to induce little to no high, these THCV-rich sativas produce high-energy, psychoactive effects. That’s good news if you like the euphoria associated with cannabis, but don’t want the raging appetite.

Leafly "Durban Poison" sativa cannabis strain tile and effects bar

With an average THCV content that ranges between 0.2 to 1.8%, Durban Poison is the perfect weapon against overactive appetites and can be found in most major markets. Cherished for its active, upbeat high that can fuel productivity, this pure African sativa keeps you focused on what matters more than snacks.

Leafly "Power Plant" sativa cannabis strain tile and effects bar

Resist the call of the pizza with Power Plant, an electrifying sativa that descends from African landrace strains. Its spicy, peppery aroma perks up the senses, leaving you with inspiration and positivity instead of a demanding stomach. You can find Power Plant in many different markets across the U.S. and beyond, so check to see if a shop near you is carrying it.

Leafly "Jack the Ripper" cannabis strain tile and effects bar

Kill the temptation to order half Taco Bell’s menu with Jack the Ripper, a sativa strain that carries a tantalizing lemon scent. A favorite in the Pacific Northwest, this invigorating sativa is sure to summon a talkative mood long before a talkative tum.

Leafly "Red Congolese" sativa cannabis strain tile and effects bar

Another African sativa, Red Congolese focuses all of its psychoactive energy in the head, helping creativity and focus to thrive. Among the list of activities this sativa motivates, you’ll sooner find hiking, painting, and reading more appealing than eating the entire contents of your fridge. Though most frequently found in Vancouver, BC and Ontario, you might be delightfully surprised by its occasional appearance on the West Coast and in other areas of the U.S..

Leafly "Moby Dick" sativa cannabis strain tile and effects bar

As sweet and citrusy as this sativa might taste, Moby Dick doesn’t coerce the appetite as much as other strains. Expect instead to feel your mood and energy elevate to a place in which it’s easy to feel satisfied whether or not you treated yourself to an entire cheesecake. This sativa is lovingly embraced in Canada and Spain, although Americans have also reported sightings of the legendary Moby Dick in many markets.

New Strains Alert: G.O.A.T., Chronic Thunder, Jamba Juice, and More

The weekend is upon us, which means it’s prime time for test driving some new strains. Having finally bought Fallout 4 for myself, I’m keeping an eye out for the G.O.A.T. hybrid which could only be a reference to the game’s Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test (…or maybe it stands for “Greatest Of All Time”). Check out the other strains recently added to Leafly below, and remember to leave reviews for any you’ve had a chance to try.

Which strains made it on your shopping list this weekend? Let’s hear about them in the comments section below!

Created by Scapegoat Genetics and TSL Farms, G.O.A.T. is a hybrid strain that crosses Animal Pie and ACDC. Bursting with fragrant cherry aromas, G.O.A.T. is as flavorful as it is potent. With a 1:1 ratio of CBD:THC, this hybrid is preferred by patients treating pain, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. 

Mossad is an indica-dominant strain bred by Terraform Genetics, who crossed a Conspiracy Kush male with the Kosher Kush female. This San Fernando Valley strain may express one of two sets of characteristics depending on the phenotype. The first (dubbed Mossad OG) takes after its OG heritage, with frosty and dense buds that exhibit a unique calyx structure. Its aroma is a sweet and herbal mix of rose and sage, and its effects will leave you feeling mellow and relaxed following a slightly energetic cerebral buzz. The second phenotype (referred to as Mossad Kush) inherits more characteristics from Conspiracy Kush, boasting a hashy, earthy aroma accented by sour lemons.

A sativa from Sensi Seeds, Northern Lights #5 x Haze is a vigorous strain bred to improve upon Haze’s flowering time and bud structure. With zesty flavors of pungent spice, this 70% sativa delivers an invigorating cerebral buzz that seems to boost sensory awareness. Though the indica in her shines through in density and growth stature, this strain carefully preserves an uplifting high that’s perfect for daytime use.

Jamba Juice is a unique clone-only offering from Golden State Genetics. This pungent hybrid packs tantalizing exotic fruit aromas, offering sweet and candy flavors from start to finish.

Chronic Thunder is an indica strain bred by Barney’s Farm that offers full-body effects alongside a funky diesel and spicy pepper aroma. Save this heavy-hitter for a day in which you find your to-do list blank, because this indica will have you stuck in a comfortable place for a while. With moderate levels of CBD, Chronic Thunder is preferred for resolving insomnia, pain, and upset stomachs.

Bred by Golden State Genetics, Jungle Juice is a hybrid strain that crosses Animal Cookies and their in-house Tangie male. Balancing sweet and sour citrus flavors, this strain offers a flavorful release from stress, sleeplessness, and pain.

From Aficionado Seeds comes Black Lime Special Reserve, an indica strain that descends from Woodman Canyon Oil Can, Lime Afghani, Northern Lights, Purple Kush, and Chemdawg Special Reserve. Flavors of pine, lemon, and black pepper are ushered in alongside uplifting euphoria, leaving you feeling tingly and relaxed.

New Strains Alert: Mai Tai Cookies, Purple Tangie, Sputnik, Go Time, and More

This week’s newly added strains are a mix of Los Angeles Cannabis Cup winners, classic genetics, and varieites that are fairly new to the game. Find out if they’re available near you by checking the links below, and don’t forget to leave reviews for the ones you’ve tried. 

Mai Tai Cookies is a CBD-rich hybrid strain bred by Terraform Genetics, who crossed Alien Orange Cookies and ACDC.  She took 1st place for “Best CBD Flower” at the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles. This hybrid is very frosty compared to most CBD strains and has a unique aroma of cherries and orange peels.  With a high that is very relaxing and yet functional, patients would typically choose this strain for pain and anxiety. Her flowers have a dense structure similar to that of Girl Scout Cookies and are ready for harvest after a flowering cycle of 50-55 days.

A spin on the citrus-loaded Tangie sativa, Purple Tangie is a flavorful strain that invigorates the spirit with uplifting euphoria. In a show of its quality, Purple Tangie took 1st place in the “Best Medical Sativa Concentrate” category at the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles. You may find that Purple Tangie offers an energetic kick to your social skills, but this strain can certainly be enjoyed in isolation, especially when you’re occupied by creative projects.

Leafly P-51 cannabis strain tile   3. P-51

P-51 is a piney, earthy indica strain that crosses a Tahoe OG male and a Blackberry mother. Created by Clint Pipkin, a grower in both Humboldt County and Northwestern Washington, the male was flowered in a window sill on the Key Peninsula in Pierce County. Thousands of seeds were created during this cross, and Washington producer Rootworx narrowed this strain down to the best cut from 70 phenotypes. This has become Rootworx’s signature strain, resulting in DOPE Magazine’s “Strain of the Month” in June 2015. This deeply relaxing indica has also been deemed “The Tranquilizer Dart” in recreational retail shops throughout Washington State.

Go Time is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain bred by JinxProof Genetics. A cross between Norton and JOG Kush, this uplifting strain is perfect for perking up moods, stimulating focus, and coercing arousal. Zesty lemon aromas combine with sour, skunky diesel notes with an earthy, hashy finish. As pretty as it is potent, Go Time flowers erupt with bulging calyxes of pastel purples, pinks, and greens underneath a snow-white coat of crystal resin. 

What happens when you cross a space-themed Apollo 13 strain with Black Russian? You get Sputnik, a strain named after the satellite the Soviet Union launched into a quick orbit around the Earth in 1957. Sputnik has an aroma of a sweet fruit with hints of sour and diesel when exhaled. Patients typically look to Sputnik for relief of chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.

Cultivated by KC Brains, KC 36 is an indica strain bred specifically to flourish at high latitudes. A cross between White Widow and KC 606, these frosty and compact buds deliver full-on body relaxation alongside a sweet and spicy floral aroma. The peaceful, introspective qualities of KC 36 make this indica a perfect pair for meditation and enjoying nature.

Created in 2011 by Kannabia Seeds using Cheese and Afghani genetics, Queso (Spanish for “cheese”) is a hybrid strain that provides powerful body effects and mood elevation. This potent strain is typically used to relieve pain, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Growers, take note: Queso requires a minimum flowering cycle of 7 weeks , but optimal yields arrive after 8 weeks.
