1. Cherry OG
Cherry OG by Emerald Triangle Seeds is a hybrid cannabis strain bred by combining Cherry Thai, Afghani, and Lost Coast OG genetics. A 50/50 hybrid, Cherry OG truly brings you the best of both sativa and indica worlds as it delivers full-body euphoria alongside high-flying cerebral lucidity. While its name sets expectations of a fruity cherry aroma, this strain can sometimes express more sour and diesel-like flavors.
WSU is a Washington-grown rendition of the indica strain Chemo and it’s waiting for you on the shelves of recreational stores state-wide. Named in homage to Washington State University, don’t confuse this strain with the UW indica, whose name is derived from the rivaling University of Washington. Its effects are described as relaxed and spacey. Citrus and berry flavors invade the palate on the inhale, providing a flavorful introduction to WSU’s heavy indica effects.
Tommy’s Home Grown, or THG for short, is a balanced hybrid strain that falls under the “Chong Certified” label. Exclusively offered at Encanto Green Cross in Phoenix, THG delivers uplifting and energizing effects alongside a sweet tropical aroma. Comfortable and functional, Tommy’s Home Grown is a favorite for winding down after a long and stressful day.
NL5 Haze Mist by Green House Seeds is a classic sativa-dominant strain that mixes genetics from Northern Lights #5, Haze, and Kali Mist. Though primarily cerebral in effect, NL5 Haze Mist also provides a light body buzz that eases muscles into relaxation. This sativa brings a newfound vibrancy to the senses, allowing you to unlock creativity and appreciation of your surroundings.
SinMint Cookies is Sin City Seeds’ signature hybrid cross between GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies) and Blue Power. Leaning slightly to the indica side, SinMint Cookies provides powerfully euphoric effects that let your mind float blissfully away from the day’s stresses. Its aroma is a subtle mix of earthy sweetness with a trace of sharp mint.
6. Training Day
Bred by DNA Genetics, Training Day is a 70% indica that combines parent strains Trainwreck and LA Confidential. This California native takes after its LA Confidential parent in aroma and delivers a pungent earthy and pine flavor. As demonstrated by its thick blanket of crystal resin, Training Day will put your THC tolerance to the test so novices should approach this strain with caution.
7. OG Chem
OG Chem, also called Chem OG, is a sativa-dominant cross between two legendary strains, Chemdawg and OG Kush. The diesel notes of Chemdawg combine with the sour, piney scent of OG Kush to create a pungent skunky aroma that fills the room. Uplifting and euphoric, OG Chem invites the mind to indulge in its creative side while elevating the mood to a light and carefree state.
