A detailed marijuana strain guide to help you find the best tasting weed. From minty to berry, piney and spicy, we share the most delicious strains out there.
Taste is usually the least of concerns when choosing weed strains, but as more people turn to vaporizers, which allow the strain's flavor to linger, and more patients rely on medical marijuana to get through the day, taste is slowly making its way to the top of the priority list.
If you'd rather not smoke something that tastes like gasoline or a skunk, continue reading the marijuana strain guide below.
1. Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies
Thin Mints - the king of Girl Scout Cookies. People are clamoring to get their hands on this strain because of its delicious flavor. With a crisp mint taste and piney undertones, Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is one of the best-tasting strains out there.
Tip: Go for better quality here. Poor iterations taste more like floor cleaner than mint cookies.
2. Strawberry Cough
Sweet with a fruity flavor, Strawberry Cough is a favorite among smokers. This sativa-heavy strain tastes more like fresh strawberry shortcake than the overly sweet strawberry candies you find in drugstores. Some of them have very little information
3. Blue Dream
A hybrid strain, Blue Dream tops the flavor list for most people. Dream offers hints of pine and spice thanks to its haze genetics, and these flavors blend well with the hints of blueberry sweetness you'll get from this strain.
4. Afghan Mango
Afghan Mango is a strain with an incredibly complex flavor profile. From skunky to fruity, earthy, sweet and spicy, it has it all. But just as its name implies, this strain's mango flavor is what sets it apart from others. And that mango flavor persists all the way through the last hit.
5. Banana Kush
Banana Kush is sweet and delicious, but it offers more than just a great taste. With THC levels near 20%, this strain will leave you feeling calm and relaxed, but still energetic enough to tackle your to-do list for the day.
Flavor Difference between Sativa and Indica
Sativa and indica have uniquely different effects, but they tend to have different flavor profiles as well. Sativas offer a wide range of flavors, from fruity to ammonia-like. Indicas can be mildly fruity, as seen with Kush varieties, but many strains boast a skunk taste.
If you prefer something fruity, sativa is the better option, but if taste isn't on the top of your priority list, you may prefer the mind/body effects of an Indica-heavy strain.
