With so much innovation and choice out there in the world today, it’s easy to get lost in the weeds (hah!), and simply default to old standards of cannabis. Here are our top ten new strains that will blow your mind, and why you should try them.
Thug Pug: Tang Breath
Tang Breath is a masterful cross between Tropicana x Mendo Breath F2 Hybrid strains. It is a reimagining of the Tangerine Dream strains popularized in the late ’90s. Tropicana, already being a hybrid of California Orange and the Skunk strain, takes centre stage in this flower’s exceptional aroma. It provides sweet citrus, pine and black pepper notes. Similarly, Meat Breath is an Indica-dominant Hybrid of Meatloaf and Mendo Breath. In combining these two hybrids, Tang Breath maintains the light colour and aromas of the Tropicana strain. In addition, it still delivers the powerful effects of the Meat Breath’s relaxing and restorative properties.
Thug Pug: Unicorn Poop
Unicorn Poop is a rare and exotic, slightly indica-dominant, strain created by crossing GMO and the Sophisticated Lady Strains. This strain is so rare to come across in North America that you are as likely to stumble across a real-life unicorn. It’s well appreciated by those who have tried it, but there aren’t an awful lot of them.
Aromas of sharp herbs and berries wrapped up in a gassy-skunk overtone are released as you pull apart each sticky nug. The smoke is equally as wonderful as the appearance and aromas. There are smooth flavours of sweet & spicy, rich berry overtone on the exhale that’s accented by tasty sour herbs. Purple Unicorn Poop’s buds are dense and olive green and lush purple in colour. The buds glisten in crystal trichomes while bursting in orange pistils. The Magical effects are often described as euphoric for both the body and mind and a stimulating experience. Scoop up some Purple Unicorn Poop before this mystical strain disappears.
Thug Pug: Peanut Butter Breath
50% Indica / 50% Sativa
Peanut Butter Breath is a rare evenly-balanced hybrid strain created through crossing the classic Dosidos X Mendobreath F2 strains. With this bud, the name says it all – the flavour is nutty and earthy with a rich herbal overtone. The aroma follows the same profile, with an earthy herbal overtone that’s accented by rich nuttiness. As soon as you exhale, the effects of Peanut Butter Breath will sink in, starting with a cerebral lift before spreading throughout the rest of your body in tingly waves of energy. These tingles start in the back of your neck and spine before spreading their buzzing tendrils throughout the entirety of your body, leaving you hopelessly relaxed, kicking back without a care in the world – that is, until the munchies hit. Be sure to have some snacks on hand, since you won’t really be able to get up off the couch to hunt for any at this point. This bud has long grape-shaped olive green nugs with bright red-orange hairs and a coating of thick frosty white purple-tinted crystal trichomes.
With these long-lasting effects and its high 18-28% average THC level, Peanut Butter Breath is often chosen to treat conditions such as appetite loss or nausea, depression, chronic stress, or chronic pain.
Seed Junky: Ice Cream Cake
75% Indica / 25% Sativa
Ice Cream Cake is a rare Indica-dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the Gelato 33 X Wedding Cake strains. With this bud, the name says it all in the flavour department. Ice Cream Cake packs a super delicious cheesy creamy flavour with a sweet nuttiness that lingers long after you finish your final toke. The aroma is of the same nature, with a light pungent effect to it that’s released as the nugs are burned. The Ice Cream Cake high is just as beautiful as the flavour, with lifted and relaxing effects that will have you kicking back in no time flat. The high starts with a rush of cerebral effects that lift your mind into a state of pure happiness and ease, pushing out any negative or racing thoughts immediately. Soon after, a relaxing body high will start to creep into your physical form, leaving you falling deeper and deeper into a couch-locked state of sedation before you eventually begin to drift away. This bud has small dense grape-shaped forest green nugs with thick orange hairs and frosty white crystal trichomes.
With these calming effects and its high 20-25% average THC level, Ice Cream Cake is said to be perfect for treating those suffering from depression, chronic pain, insomnia, and nausea or appetite loss.
Seed Junky: Animal Mints
50% Indica / 50% Sativa
Animal Mints is an evenly balanced hybrid strain created through crossing the classic Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies X Fire OG strains. Looking for an insanely delicious toke that will hit both mind and body with a high level of potency? Animal Mints is totally it. This baby packs a super sweet minty cookie flavouuur into each and every toke, with a lightly nutty vanilla exhale. The aroma is of earthy pine with a hint of sharp mint and pungent diesel, all wrapped up with a notable cookie effect as the nugs are burned. The Animal Mints high is just as delightful as the flavour, with long-lasting effects that are perfect for kicking back after a long and stressful day. You’ll feel a cerebral effect first, filling your mind with a sleepy lifted sense that leaves you totally stoned and fading in and out of focus. A full heavy body high comes next, lulling you into a state of couch lock before you drift away into peaceful sedation. This bud has fluffy oversized popcorn-shaped forest green nugs with thin light amber hairs, tiny matching trichomes and a sticky sweet coating of syrupy resin.
