Welcome back to another New Strains Alert! This week we are dropping another hybrid-rich collection of strains. TKO Reserve shares a few Cherry Pie crosses, and Gage Green pulls their famous Grape Stomper genetics off the shelf. Plus, we have a delicious Cookies hybrid from Kush4Breakfast, a special “local landrace” from Washington’s own TreeHawk Farms, and an Alien Dawg cross from Nebula Gardens. TreeHawk Farms also shares The Wills, a Willy’s Wonder phenotype that has traversed the countryside of the Pacific Northwest for years. Being a homegrown Washingtonian, I always get excited about quality cannabis genetics from my home state.

Stay tuned for more recently added strains next Friday!

Bright Moments by Gage Green Group is a delicious cross of heirloom Grape Stomper genetics. Created by crossing Grape Stomper and Grape Stomper OG, Gage Green fashions an incredibly frosty and potent strain with a generous yield for attentive growers. This strain’s loud grape fragrance is as alluring as it is pungent, and the effects hit strong, rushing directly to the head. These effects expel stress and clear the mind, replacing cares and concerns with bright euphoria.

The flavors are creamy and chocolatey with spicy notes of cinnamon. Its aroma is a bit funkier with elements of fuel and cacao, filling the room with a bouquet of potent terpenes. Enjoy Red Velvet Pie to help relieve stress while donning a stimulating and euphoric glow.

Laughing Gas by TKO Reserve is a fuel-forward cross of Sour Diesel and Cherry Pie. This pungent pair creates a strain that emits a powerful fuel aroma intermixed with notes of  grass, pine, and a distant sweetness. The dense, knobby buds offer consumers stimulating, happy, and creative effects that can help diminish depression and initiate activity.

Sour Cherry Sherbert by TKO Reserve is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a unique terpene profile and uplifting effects. This strain was created by crossing Laughing Gas with Sunset Sherbet, and it can motivate a pleasant shift in mood as well as dull pain. The aroma is a mixture of tart cherries and diesel while the flavor is a touch more herbal, expressing notes of hops, pine, lavender, and cinnamon. Enjoy Sour Cherry Sherbert throughout the day to stimulate creativity while combating minor aches and pains.

The Wills is a flavorful Willy’s Wonder phenotype that has been floating around Western Washington for decades. This “local landrace” was shared among breeders throughout the Pacific Northwest for its pleasurable effects and eagerness to grow. Offering Kush-like, indica-dominant effects, The Wills lays into the limbs while uplifting the mind, naturally dissipating stress and enhancing mood. It emits a strong aroma of pine and citrus that is nearly astringent, while the flavor offers up complex floral notes and a clean pine finish.

What Is ‘Kush’ Cannabis?

White Tahoe Cookies is an indica-dominant strain created by Kush4Breakfast and distributed by Archive Seed Bank. This strain is a blend of The WhiteTahoe OG, and an unknown Girl Scout Cookies cut, and exemplifies attributes of each in trichome coverage, effect, and aroma. The GSC bouquet has been enhanced through this cross, offering up sweeter, hashier notes with distant OG undertones. Its sedative effects pile on with each hit, weighing the consumer to their seat while alleviating minor pain and anxiety.

Grape Dawg is an indica-leaning hybrid created by Nebula Gardens. This grape phenotype was “mysteriously” given to Robert Meyer before circulating throughout the Pacific Northwest and is a cross between Lemon Kush and Alien Dawg. This strain’s delicious flavor is contrasted against the strain’s pungent, room-filling aroma of sweet gas and citrus. Grape Dawg’s uplifting mental state coupled with nausea reduction and appetite stimulation make this an enjoyable accompaniment throughout the day, but especially before or after a meal.

This week we are sharing some local genetics, including a double-dose of Sherbet with two distinct lineages, a Chernobyl x Girl Scout Cookies cross (for all the Cookies fans), and much more.

I had the pleasure of sampling Gummo, another new addition, and I cannot recommend it enough. The well-rounded strain has perfect hybrid effects, while the terpene profile was pleasurable and nuanced. The Orange Kush Breath was also a strain I tried firsthand, and woah! This strain’s terpene profile was unusual, but was true to its name. And yes, I mean it smelled like old man breath intermixed with funky citrus notes. This made the strain’s aroma challenging, but also made it stand out.

Find these strains and more on Leafly, and leave reviews for any you’ve tried!

Gummo by Gabriel Cannabis is a unique, fruity cross of flavorful genetics. It was created by crossing Bubble Gum and Orange Bud, and emits a bouquet full of tart citrus and sweet fruit. This strain tastes like it smells with effects that are surprisingly laid back, even with the strain’s bright terpene profile. Anticipate calming physical effects that are juxtaposed against a happy and euphoric mental state. Enjoy Gummo throughout the day to elevate mood and tame pain.

What Are the Best Cannabis Strains for Pain?

Sherbet by Gabriel Cannabis is a special cross of a Champagne mother and a flavorful Blackberry father. This classy union yields a phenomenal sherbet flavor intermixed with notes of mint and fresh berries. Gabriel’s Sherbet is a gentle indica-leaning hybrid that mellows anxiety and stress while abating nausea and minor pain. This strain grows dense, multifaceted buds that express bright orange stigmas contrasted against purple and forest green foliage.

Sherbet by Royal Tree Gardens is another genetically distinct strain under a familiar name. Royal Tree’s Sherbet cut is close to the original, crossing an unknown Purple Cookies with Platinum Girl Scout Cookies. This twice-deep mixture of Cookies genetics gives the plant a sweet, sugary aroma that is as alluring on the nose as it is on the palate. Sherbet provides a clear-headed and uplifting mental state, and a pleasant terpene profile that is sure to excite novice and seasoned consumers alike.

Gas Mask by Pacific NW Roots is a funky strain with an aroma so pungent, you might need a gas mask. Created by backcrossing a Cherry Pie and Alien Kush F2 hybrid, Gas Mask reeks of fuel with a distant note of overripe citrus. This strain was created through a collaboration with Exotic Genetix, a Pacific Northwest mainstay. Gas Mask has an 8 to 9 week flowering period and a medium-sized yield for attentive growers.

This strain expresses large, fluffy spade-shaped buds with mint green foliage and a thick layer of amber hairs. Northwest Pineapple has a happy and uplifting high that easily improves mood while going easy on the body.

Smoke This, Play That Vol. 6: Ty Dolla $ign, Majid Jordan, dvsn, and More

It’s time for your monthly dose of musical nutrients and strain pairings, complete with a playlist of some of the dopest new records out today. This is *grabs a megaphone* SMOKE THIS, PLAY THAT VOL. 6. So let’s get to it.

Brent Faiyaz – Sonder Son

[embedded content]

Sonder Son is the debut album of Brent Faiyaz, one-third of the group Sonder, and boy let me tell ya, it’s what I like to call that Lemonade Music. What’s Lemonade Music? It’s that music that makes you want to post up on the front porch on a sunny day with a speaker and a big ol’ glass of Country Time. It just feels good, even though its content is reflective of a young man working through his life’s struggles and finding out who he is. Because of that, it’s one of those albums you can put on when your day is in a weird rut, and suddenly you feel like everything’s going to be okay.

The deep/personal nature of the album is coupled with bouncy beats and funny little interludes, which will not only sneak a little joy into your soul, but also have your shoulders a-shakin. If you hear his voice and think to yourself, “Man, this guy sounds familiar,” it’s because it’s the voice that sings the hook on Goldlink’s “Crew,” which is arguably the best rap song to come out this year.

Strain: Stardawg

Stardawg is a strain that’ll give you a little energy boost but still keep you mellow and in that “Man, I’m so high and it feels so good” mood that won’t necessarily provoke action. But it will provoke thought, which is good for an album that has real content that could be overshadowed by upper-type beats.

Ty Dolla $ign – Beach House 3

[embedded content]

Are you looking for an incredible R&B album that’s full of fun beats and dope features? Are you looking for an album that makes you want to hop on the highway, drop the top/open the sunroof, and let all your cares flow out and up towards the ozone layer? Well look no further, you found it.

The third installation of the Beach House series, Beach House 3 is one of the best projects to come out this year. It’s banger after banger after banger, so much so that you don’t even mind it’s 20 songs long (12-13 is the sweet spot for albums, in my opinion). The production is amazing, the overall quality of the music is amazing, and if there’s any confusion about whether Ty Dolla $ign is a singer or rapper, one play of “Droptop in the Rain” will put that debate to bed; that boy be sangin’.

Summer in Seattle: Is It Worth the High?

Strain: Hawaiian Snow

Hawaiian Snow is a heavy sativa that’ll up and at ‘em like Atom Ant. At the risk of sounding redundant, this really is a beachy vibe-type album, so this beachy vibe strain’ll put you right where you need to be during a BH3 listening session.

Majid Jordan – The Space Between

[embedded content]

This is that nighttime, let’s get into my feelings-type of music right here. The type of music that you put on when you’re heartbroken and suddenly you’re dialing the number of your ex, and you don’t know if you’re going to cuss them out or confess your undying love when they answer. Majid Jordan, signees of Drake’s OVO Sound record label, really know how to make that good-ass love/sex music that’ll have you making rash decisions at 2 a.m.

If you’ve never heard them before (you have because they’re on Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home“), this is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted because they are fully in their bag on this album. “Gave Your Love Away“? Banger. “OG Heartthrob“? Banger. “Not Ashamed“? Banger. Are you seeing the trend here? Twist up something smelly and let this flow through your headphones/speakers, but don’t say I didn’t warn you about how it’ll make you feel.

Strain: Alien Rock Candy

Alien Rock Candy is a heavy indica that’ll hit your brain and body with that Wham Bam, Thank You Ma’am and have you down for the count. It’s the type of strain you need when listening to some Majid Jordan late at night—everything about this album is perfect for the magic hour (post-2 a.m.).

OverDoz. – 2008

[embedded content]

I stumbled upon this album by accident, and it’s so adequately titled because it really take you back to the days where your only concern was partying with friends and chasing the opposite sex. Super wish this would’ve dropped during the summer because all of the songs make ya boy want to do is two-step under a 87-degree sunset. Let “House Party” ride one time and you’ll totally understand what I mean.

With its super West Coast sound, 2008 is the perfect album to throw on while you’re cleaning up around the house—you’ll find yourself dancing around doing Mrs. Doubtfire shit.

Strain: GriZ Kush

I smoked some GriZ Kush while in Denver, then walked around with a homie and couldn’t stop laughing or enjoying being alive. After listening to this album, I damn near felt the same way.

dvsn – Morning After

[embedded content]

Another signee of OVO Sound, dvsn makes that fire love/sexytime music that’ll have you feeling a certain type of way. And much like Majid Jordan, this R&B music will have you in your feelings so approach with caution. Take a couple tokes off the blunt, then play “Think About Me” and you might break down into tears of Yo, I Just Need Her in My Life. And don’t even get me started on “P.O.V.” “Ooooohweeee” is the only way to describe it. Get high and let Morning After ride out; it’s of the highest quality.

The 9 Most Overhyped Cannabis Strains

What to Watch in November 2017

While We’re Young (2014)

[embedded content]

Genre: Drama/Comedy (movie)

Platform: Netflix

Starring Ben Stiller and Adam Driver, While We’re Young is a flick about an old, washed up documentarian who befriends a young and vibrant documentarian whose friendship ends up taking over the old/washed up dude’s life. It’s one of those movies that feels such like real life that you’re instantly drawn into the characters and the storyline. If you’re a creative person, definitely peep this. It’ll indirectly inspire you to make the most of the best years of your life (when you’re young and your body still works the way you want it to).

The Babysitter (2017)

[embedded content]

Genre: Thriller/Comedy (movie)

Platform: Netflix

The Babysitter’s a Netflix original starring Bella Thorne, King Bach, and some other people that you won’t know until they start popping up in everything 2-3 years from now. It’s about a kid who discovers his oversexualized babysitter belongs to a satanic cult, and once he catches them in action, they do everything they can to keep him quiet. It’s not an Oscar nominee by any stretch of the imagination, but dammit, it’s really funny for a lot of stupid reasons, so definitely get high and watch this if you want to get your giggle on.

Security (2017)

[embedded content]

Genre: Crime-Thriller/Action (movie)

Platform: Netflix

Ay man, Security is lit. Starring Antonio Banderas, it’s a movie about a former military dude-turned-mall cop that’s tasked with protecting a 11-year old trial witness fleeing from assassins and mercenaries after she pops up at the mall’s front door. It’s one of those straightforward action joints with no real twist, but it’s still exciting because you’re like “There’s absolutely no way they make it out of this.” From beginning to end there’s not a single dull moment, so you’ll be fully locked in, especially if you’re in an elevated state of mind.

Wheelman (2017)

[embedded content]
Genre: Crime-Thriller/Action (movie)

Platform: Netflix

You know those movies that are really good, but still kind of suck, even though they’re really good? This is one of those. Starring Frank Grillo, it’s a movie about a getaway driver who gets played during a botched bank robbery, then has to play the “Do what I say or your family is dead” game with some mystery villain. It’s entertaining and worth your time, even if there’s nothing particularly special about it.

Dawg Fight (2015)

[embedded content]

Genre: Documentary (movie)

Platform: Netflix

Dawg Fight’s a documentary about MMA fighter Dada 500 and his “league” of backyard brawls that birthed fighters like Kimbo Slice. On the surface, it’s about fighters trying to make a name for themselves, but at its core, it’s about men from the poverty-stricken Florida suburbs looking for a way out of the hood. It’s sobering and gut-wrenching at times, but damn if it ain’t brilliant. If you’ve never seen it, smoke something and push play on it.

Iverson (2014)

[embedded content]

Genre: Documentary (movie)

Platform: Netflix

At this point, there should be no more Allen Iverson documentaries. His story has been told many times in as many ways as possible. But if you aren’t aware of how rough his life was and how he almost lost it all, but was given a chance by John Thompson/Georgetown, you should really push play and watch this. It’ll leave your jaw on the floor and tears in your eyes.

Generation Iron 2 (2017)

Platform: Netflix

Generation Iron 2 is a documentary that details the turbulence and stress surrounding the life of a professional bodybuilder. Not only does it give you insight into the business of bodybuilding, it also details the thoughts of high-profile competitors/influencers like Kai Greene, Calum von Moger, and the late Rich Piana. It also details how the professional fitness game has changed for women due to the growth of Instagram butt models. It’s very interesting and very much worth your time.

Michael Che Matters (2016)

[embedded content]

Genre: Stand-up comedy special

Platform: Netflix

This is one the funniest stand-ups to drop in recent times. SNL’s own Michael Che hops on stage and talks about everything from cops and guns to white women to abortions to whatever the hell you can think of. And it’s all downright hilarious.

Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017)

[embedded content]

Genre: Stand-up comedy special

Platform: Netflix

You ever seen a comedian stand on stage and tell jokes about himself, his life, and the tragedy of the love of his life dying unexpectedly in her sleep at age 46? No? Here you go. This shit is dark, it’s deep, but it’s Patton, so he still somehow makes you laugh at all of it. But man. It’s heavy.

Neo Yokio is an anime about…well…it’s hard to explain. It’s about a supernaturally gifted teenager navigating through high society and also fashion, love, and life in general. Again, it’s hard to explain, because it’s downright weird and unlike anything that I’ve ever watched, which is exactly why it stars Jaden Smith and is created/written by Ezra Koenig. It’s hilarious, though, one of those witty-type shows that you’ll only get if you get. But you’ll get it. Because you’re one of those witty-type people.

For those looking for a more fuel-forward experience, look no further than BCN Diesel and the powerful Chemdawg cross, Cackleberry.

Read up on these strains below and see if any pique your interest!

Banana Cream OG is grown by Vagrant Hill Farms of Forest Grove, Oregon. This strain is a hybrid cross of Blue DreamBanana OG, and Ocean Beach OG.

Not much more is known about this strain other than its heavy, OG-forward effects that lay into the body and gain weight with continued consumption.

Blood Orange Kush emits a bouquet of gas and tart citrus that fills the room and coats the palate.

The Loops is a potent indica-dominant cross of Granddaddy PurpleOG Kush, and Volcano Hash created by Insanity Strains.

BCN Diesel by Kannabia Seed Company is a pungent hybrid cross of familiar and potent genetics. Created by crossing NYC Diesel and Black Domina, this strain produces dense, bullet-shaped buds that stink of citrus and fuel. It achieves this bud structure and density through the addition of Black Domina while the NYC Diesel contributes to the strain’s heady, energetic buzz. BCN Diesel has a snappy 8 week flower time, but has been known to benefit from an extra week for maximum yield and potency.

Cackleberry by Greenpoint Seeds is a fuel-driven, fruit-forward hybrid that offers consumers potency in both aroma and effect. It was created by crossing Cherry Diesel and Stardawg. This combination compounds the cherry cough syrup, ammonia, and fuel aromas of Cherry Diesel against the deep chemical and fuel aromas of Stardawg. Greenpoint Seeds set out to improve upon the base genetics of this strain, and Cackleberry hits the mark.

Prep for Game 7 of the World Series With These LA Strains and Dispensaries

Baseball and sports fans from all around the world will tune in tonight to Game 7 of the Major League Baseball World Series, with the Los Angeles Dodgers taking on the Houston Astros in the decisive final game of the series in Los Angeles.

Leafly List: The Best Cannabis Dispensaries in Southern California, Fall 2017

As veteran MLB columnist for Yahoo Sports Jeff Passan tweeted out earlier today, tonight’s matchup is the 2,468th and final MLB game of the season, and if the previous six games are any indication, tonight’s action will truly be invigorating.

While we have both Dodgers and Astros fans in our Seattle and California offices, only one team operates in a market with legal dispensaries (sorry, Texas). So with cannabis legal for medicinal use (and soon to be legal for adult use) in California, we thought we’d help out our fellow Dodgers fans down in the City of Angels with some cannabis strain and dispensary recommendations to either help celebrate a big win tonight or help ease the pain of a loss.

(Don’t forget, game time is set for 5:20 p.m. (Pacific) and is televised nationally on FOX.)

Leafly Venice OG Sativa cannabis strain tile  Venice OG

This sativa strain gets its roots straight from Los Angeles in Venice Beach. Venice OG is a powerful sativa-dominant strain that will certainly get your party started off the right way, giving you energetic effects that make it a great daytime option. It shouldn’t make you the slightest bit sleepy, so give this strain a try pre-game, or maybe later on in the game to stay awake.

Venice OG is available at Buddha Company Pre-Ico in Los Angeles.

Leafly 818 OG Indica cannabis strain tile 818 OG

Related to OG Kush, the San Fernando Valley-based 818 OG is a popular indica strain down in California. Great for treating pain, loss of appetite, and insomnia, give this strain a try before munching on some of your favorite game time snacks—its very fruity flavors will definitely not disappoint.

You can find 818 OG at several locations in LA, but give The Green Easy a try in the city.

Leafly LA Kush Hybrid cannabis strain tile  LA Kush

LA Kush should be a top choice for any Dodgers fan tonight, with its heritage coming from Los Angeles. It’s a hybrid mix of OG Kush, and Abusive OG, giving consumers happy effects that will bring a smile to their faces (just like a Yasiel Puig home run would).

If you’re looking to alleviate stress from the game, this is the strain for you, and you can find it at the Herbal Pain Relief Center.

Leafly LA Confidential Indica cannabis strain tile  LA Confidential

One of the more well-known strains on our list, LA Confidential is a very popular indica that features buds with a frosty, lime green appearance along with little purple leaves. The taste is always smooth and piney, with a classic skunky smell you can’t stop sniffing. If you find yourself watching the game in the top of the seventh inning and the Dodgers are down by five runs, this might be the strain for you.

Give LA Confidential a try at THClear DTLA in downtown LA.

Leafly Abusive OG Indica cannabis strain tile  Abusive OG

Last but certainly not least, this strain has already been mentioned before in this list, but we figured we should still include it as it has great Los Angeles roots. Abusive OG is a popular Californian cut of OG Kush that inherited the nickname of its original grower. Despite its violent name, Abusive OG will ease you into a peaceful state of mind that fades over time into full-body relaxation. This is another great end-of-your-day strain, so maybe after celebrating a hard-earned Dodgers win, give it a try to ease into a nice sleep.

Find Abusive OG at the Rose Collective.

The 9 Most Overhyped Cannabis Strains

After we ran our list of 100 cannabis strains to try before you die, we started getting a lot of strain ranking-related questions. Specifically, we had a lot of people curious if there were any strains that weren’t worth trying.

RELATED STORY

The 100 Cannabis Strains You Must Try Before You Die

Our short answer to that question is: No. While individual consumers may like or dislike certain strains based on varying preferences in flavor, aroma, effects, provenance, strain reputation, and personal past experiences, just about any strain can be a world-class strain if it’s cultivated with enough expertise, passion, and care. Furthermore, just because a strain is overhyped doesn’t mean it’s bad—it simply means it gets a ton of love that could just as easily be going to other equally deserving strains.

Below, we’ve listed nine cannabis strains we believe to get a disproportionate amount of attention. And we repeat again—these are still great strains. Many of the following are also on our list of the top 100 to try, and deservingly so. So take this list with a grain of salt—and let us know in the comments if you agree or if you think other cannabis strains are more overhyped than these ones!

Leafly List: The Best Cannabis Locations in North America, Fall 2017

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains:  BlueberryHaze

Why it’s overhyped: “No matter how great a strain is, if it’s the most popular strain in the nation, it’s going to end up with a target on its back—as Blue Dream has. Is Blue Dream good? Yes. Is it hands-down the best strain in the nation? Probably not. But the beauty of Blue Dream is that it’s a great place for cannabis beginners to start: It offers appealing flavor, balanced effects, and widespread availability. Among more experienced consumers, Blue Dream is less popular, and sometimes even vilified, but that’s to be expected. Take wine as an example: The easy-drinking red table blend that gets a beginner into wine probably isn’t going to pique the interest of a seasoned connoisseur with a penchant for Cabernet. And that’s completely okay. You do you, Blue Dream.” —Brett Konen

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Hemp

Why it’s overhyped: “Day in and day out, Leafly hears from medical patients asking where they can get Charlotte’s Web, the famous CBD strain that catalyzed a massive shift in the public’s view of cannabis, beginning with CNN medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta. Charlotte’s Web delivered miraculous results for adolescent epilepsy patient Charlotte Figi as well as many others, so much so that it became the only strain CBD-seekers hunted. But Charlotte’s Web is the most talked-about strain you’ll probably never hold in your hand; it’s an incredibly rare CBD variety grown by a single farm in Colorado. So, know that there are many other fantastic CBD strains that are far more common, such as ACDC, Harlequin, and Canna-Tsu, and give them a try if CBD is what’s missing in your life.” —Bailey Rahn

The 10 Best CBD Cannabis Strains According to Leafly Users

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Mexican

Why it’s overhyped: “Another nostalgic strain with a legend that has fueled the hype-train. Acapulco Gold became popular in a time when imported cannabis was all the rage. It influenced many baby boomers, leaving an indelible mark on the Woodstock generation as tales of its uplifting glory and stellar potency spread throughout the counterculture. A low-budget mockumentary named for the strain and a cameo in Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke added to the allure, introducing the strain to the masses. Truth be told, Acapulco Gold is a flavorful and compelling landrace strain that can lead to wonderful experiences when in the hands of a skilled grower, but it is also known to produce racy cerebral effects than can spark social anxiety for some.” —Will Hyde

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: Undisclosed

Why it’s overhyped: “Everyone, their mom, and their dog has an OG cross that they claim is ‘the real OG.’ A quick search query yields 493 different strains that mention OG on Leafly. That is an incredible amount of strains that claim to contain some part of this strain’s genetic code. It is all well and good to search out the favorable attributes in OG strains, but to use the OG branding as a means to grow hype around another product is just lame. OG firstly stands for Original, and that is the real irony—most of these OGs are anything but.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Podcast: What Are You Smoking? Ep 12, Josh D & The Real OG Kush Story

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: TrainwreckHawaiian

Why it’s overhyped: “Don’t get us wrong—Pineapple Express is a fantastic strain. That’s why it’s also on our list of the Top 100 Strains to Try Before You Die. This strain is overhyped not through any fault of its own, but thanks to the fact that it was chosen as the name of a major motion picture and, subsequently, became Hollywood-famous. Thanks to its eponymous movie, Pineapple Express has joined the canon of the world’s most iconic strains, which makes it capable of eclipsing many other worthy strains with its name recognition alone. You should absolutely enjoy Pineapple Express whenever it crosses your path—just don’t let its star power make it the only thing you reach for.” —Brett Konen

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: Chemdawg 91Super Skunk

Why it’s overhyped: “To say the least, Sour Diesel is a polarizing strain. People seem to love it or hate it, but no matter how they feel they are passionate. Due to closely guarded genetics and the historically high price tag Sour D fetched in its native New York City, it has been counterfeited, knocked off, and forged for years. With the market flooded with bunk versions of the genetics, consumers are often misled and disappointed when looking for the real Sour.  True Sour Diesel is well worth the hype if you are attracted to its palate of flavors—when grown well, the pungent aroma and sharp taste produces a gassy, diesel note that either entices to the point of obsession or repulses to the point of complete disgust. The effects of the strain are regularly described as energetic, upbeat, and euphoric, which can also spark paranoia and anxiety for some. Tl;dr: There’s a lot of hype behind Sour Diesel, some of it is even justified, but if you don’t know for certain that you have legit Sour Diesel there’s a good chance that hype train is headed right off the rails.” —Will Hyde

Bud on a Budget: What $20, $50, and $100 Buy at a Recreational Dispensary in Seattle

Strain type: Sativa

Parent strains: North American Sativa

Why it’s overhyped: “Alaskan Thunder Fuck gets a lot of cred just because the name is louder than the flower. Some cuts can blow half your head clean off, and to that point, sativa dominant strains aren’t for everyone. That is also to say, good sense doesn’t always cut through the hype, and just because this strain’s title is more profane doesn’t make it better. Do the research, understand the genetics, and go deeper than a strain’s name.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm

Strain type: Hybrid

Parent strains: South AmericanMexicanThaiAfghani

Why it’s overhyped: “The legacy of AK-47 paints it as a potent strain that is popular with new growers, but it comes from an era when hybrids were being selected more for their flowering time indoors than for compelling and distinct characteristics. Thanks to it being a staple of Dutch coffeeshops and the genetics being so widely available through seed banks, AK-47 ends up in the hands of many novice growers, and the results tend to be mixed. This makes it difficult to find truly exceptional varieties of the strain. The lack of any specific unique trait that would help it stand out makes the hype and nostalgia of AK-47 outweigh its experience.” —Will Hyde

Why it’s overhyped: “Champagne is an overhyped naming scheme that has been tacked onto different strains to try and illustrate quality. It won’t smell like champagne, it doesn’t taste like champagne, but the notion of popping a bottle of bubbly is associated with celebration and luxury, and brands want to parlay that association to give certain strains greater value, whether they deserve those accolades or not. Also, wise up you fakers—if it doesn’t come from Champagne it isn’t champagne anyway.” —Jeremiah Wilhelm
