Over the past few years, attitudes to marijuana have changed substantially. Far from being regarded as a black market substance, it is becoming increasingly acceptable. In fact, with so many strains and types, it’s fair to compare it to fine wine.
Every smoker has their own favourite strain, preferring it over others and using it to complement their mood. We’d be interested in finding out what your perfect cannabis strain is so please leave your preferences and reasons in the comments section below.
However, if you’re still experimenting to find what works for you, we’ve listed some of the top marijuana strains here – as well as endorsements from some of their celebrity fans.
The OG Kush marijuana strain is one of the most famous varieties of cannabis on the planet. A reliable, award-winning classic, this strain is loved by many people. However, as there are loads of different Kushes out there – some even sativa-dominant – it is worth shopping around to find something which is right for you.
While some celebrities such as Rihanna appear to support this particular strain – with her famous tweet “Kush rolled, glass full…I prefer the better things!” – others have gone out of their way to really proclaim their love for strains of Kush:
Wiz Khalifa and Khalifa Kush
Wiz Khalifa, American rapper, songwriter, and actor, is well known for his endorsement of marijuana. In an interview with Esquire, Wiz spoke about the appeal of the drug, stating:
“I'm the type of the person where I smoke indica and feel way more up and smoke sativa and feel down. That's the opposite of what happens for most people. It's definitely through trial and error."
In fact, he mentioned he had actually started his own strain of Kush, named Khalifa Kush, to provide a unique experience:
"All kush isn't kush. The different strains of kush, those are really the ones that vary and change up the most. You can get kind of fooled. That's why I created Khalifa Kush so I could stop smoking all those weird kushes."
Although rumour states that this particular strain stems from the more traditional OG Kush, we will see if this goes on to be a competition winner.
This legendary marijuana strain has a unique place in cannabis culture. With beautiful coloured leaves and packed with high amounts of THC, this indica-dominant strain provides individuals with an amazing taste and experience.
In July 2013, the purp strain was even backed by Snoop Dogg during an interview on Reddit, who described it as his favourite variant. Perhaps this was even the type that he smoked during a visit to the White House.
Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies, not to be confused with the biscuit variant, has quickly risen to become one of America’s favourite strains. A Cannabis Cup winner, this is now the must-have weed of marijuana connoisseurs.
Jake Browne – pot critic, comedian, and writer – is a fan of this particular strain, describing it as a “nice change of pace”.
Furthermore, he stated: “Even with the tobacco paper, there’s an unmistakable sweetness to the smoke, and it burns evenly and smooth, despite my rusty rolling skills.”
Another supporter of Girl Scout Cookies is The Alchemist – professional music producer and rapper – who, during an interview with Fadar, confessed his support for the strain. In this talk, he even asked the reporter “Do you smoke weed? You should try the Girl Scout Cookies. It's good weed.”
A hybrid strain with a unique taste and aroma, the pineapple strain is traditionally a nice blend to chill out with after a hard day at work or when you’re in need of some relaxation. Very easy to grow and look after, it is not surprising that so many people love the strain.
The Pineapple Kush Strain was also reportedly loved by marijuana icon Bob Marley. According to an article published on The Huffington Post, “Bob’s favourite strains were those that were prevalent in Jamaica historically, like lambsbread, pineapple kush, and some others … that he used to get from Nine Mile, Saint Ann Parish, in Jamaica.”
Or…just go with whatever
Like most substances, finding something right for you is a matter of trial and error. Marijuana icon Willie Nelson, who is incidentally starting his own strain of cannabis called Willie’s Reserve, has spoken at great lengths about his love of the drug. When asked about his favourite strain by Rolling Stone Magazine, he stated that:
“I’ll smoke anything that comes around. It doesn't matter to me what type it is. People like to give me it. They feel that I shouldn't be with¬out it.”
