Our Top 10 Cannabis Strains of 2022
We've been cannabis enthusiasts for years and we love to experiment with different strains, grow methods, and effects. There are so many options available now that it can be confusing. We've found that some strains have a tendency to produce more euphoria than others do. Others seem to bring us right back down again. After much trial and error (and a little bit of research), we've come up with our top 10 favorite strains of 2022:
If you're looking for a strain that will help you relax, Abusive OG is the best choice. This hybrid strain has a high THC content and is known for its intense cerebral effects. The flavor is very earthy and pungent, with notes of citrus fruit and pine resin. It's also said to have some of the strongest indica-like effects on the market: you'll feel a strong body high as well as an uplifting mood boost that makes everything seem lighter than usual. This can be beneficial when dealing with depression or anxiety—it might even make it easier to go through your day-to-day routine without getting bogged down by negativity!
Most cannabis enthusiasts are familiar with Blue Dream, one of the most popular strains on the market. However, some may not know its history or how potent it can be.
Blue Dream is a hybrid strain that has been around since the 1990s and has gained popularity in recent years. It's cross between two other well-known strains: Blueberry and Hindu Kush (a strong indica). It has an average THC content of about 20%, which is above average for most recreational strains but below average for medical ones. The effects are best described as relaxing and euphoric—perfect for winding down after work or hitting up your favorite concert!
Durban Poison is a sativa strain with a THC content of 15-20%. It is an award-winning strain and was created by crossing Skunk #1 with a Pakistani strain. The Durban Poison plant produces large, dense buds covered in resin crystals that may look like snowflakes from afar. The aroma is earthy and sweet with citrus undertones, while the taste is similar to its smell with notes of pine and wood mixed together. It has energizing effects that make it ideal for daytime use as well as activities such as hiking or working out at the gym. This strain also works well for managing stress and anxiety disorders thanks to its relaxing properties without causing stupor or couch lock.
Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies is a hybrid marijuana strain that is 60% sativa and 40% indica. It's a cross between Durban Poison and OG Kush, but it's not just one of those strains—it's both of them. This makes it stronger than either parent strain, with THC levels that can reach up to 28%.
I love this bud because it hits you like two cookies in your mouth at once: one sweet, one savory. The effects are invigorating but mellow enough to allow you to do whatever you need to do without getting too high or too tired.
The name of this strain is a nod to the sweet, fruity flavor and aroma. With a THC content of up to 25%, Green Crack is known for being very potent. It’s also known for having an energizing high that some people find helpful when it comes to getting things done or performing at their best.
If you want to try this strain, it’s best to go with an indica-dominant hybrid such as Cannatonic or Granddaddy Purple that has similar qualities but won’t knock you out like Green Crack will—and if you can find some Lava Kush on top of everything else, even better!
Harlequin is a hybrid of two very popular strains, Trainwreck and Durban Poison. Harlequin is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is a cross between Durban Poison and Trainwreck. The strain produces an extremely high THC content, producing up to 23 percent on average. Harlequin has been known to produce THC levels as high as 28 percent in some cases!
Harlequin’s aroma is sweet and sour while the taste is piney with hints of citrus or even diesel fuel.
Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant hybrid named after Jack Herer, the famous cannabis activist who also happens to be a staunch supporter of hemp. This strain was created as a cross between Haze and Northern Lights #5 using pollen from both parents. Though it’s been around since the ‘90s and has won many awards, Jack Herer remains one of the most popular strains available today.
The effects of this strain are well balanced between head high and body stone; they come on slowly but then build up quickly with an uplifting cerebral buzz that leaves you feeling creative and energetic enough to tackle any task — even if it’s just cleaning up your apartment!
LSD is a hybrid cannabis strain that was first bred in the early 1990s. This strain is a cross between two popular strains: Northern Lights and Skunk #1. LSD contains high levels of THC, with some samples testing over 25% THC content. It can be used to treat anxiety and depression, as well as other mood disorders such as bipolar disorder or bipolar type 1 disorder (BP1).
King Louis XIII
If you are looking for a cannabis strain that will take your mind off of stress, anxiety and depression, King Louis XIII is the right choice. It has an agreeable high THC content of 22%. The strain is a cross between OG Kush and Sour Diesel and has a fruity flavor with a spicy aftertaste.
If you have never tried this strain before, now is the time because this may just be one of the most popular strains in 2022.
If you want to get high, but not too high, then the Pineapple Express is the strain for you. This indica-dominant hybrid is a cross between Hawaiian and Trainwreck, and it has an aroma that smells like sweet pineapple. The effects are relaxing and euphoric – just what you need after a long day of work or play. You’ll feel happy and uplifted while still being able to function normally in social settings.
Pineapple Express can treat pain, anxiety and insomnia thanks to its ability to help keep your mood calm without making you sleepy (which is common among many indicas). That makes it an excellent choice for those suffering from PTSD or chronic stress disorders such as anxiety or depression.
Hopefully, this post has given you some insight into the world of cannabis strains and helped you decide which ones are right for your needs. If not, no worries! There are plenty more options out there that we didn’t cover today. Happy smoking!
