Price: $70/eighth

This classy strain should be on every stoners’ “Need to Try” list. The first hit releases a powerful, pungent sour aroma of mint and menthol, and that gas flavor immediately wakes you up. But then the Mexican Flan fades into something sweeter; the wonderful hints of cream and vanilla in its aftertaste mix and dance together beautifully. The Mexican Flan buds are an elegant and frosty green. The strain offers a clear head high that enhances focus, and puts that heavy pressure feeling on the eyes, too. The body high is strong and relaxes the body into a soothing state. —Lord Figo
