Original Post: High Times: What’s In a Name? 10 Tastiest Sounding Cannabis Strains
[Canniseur: I’ve had a several of these strains, mostly in Michigan. These descriptions, while flowery are also a bit idealized. The dilemma remains: a grower growing a great strain in one state, won’t be found in another state. Such is the nature of the cannabis business in today’s world.]
Strawberry Cough by any other name would smell as dank.
Some people may pick a cannabis strain based on name alone. Many strain names sound random or downright comical to new consumers on the hunt for a ‘go-to’ strain. With cannabis being among the hottest trends, more and more people are becoming curious about the plant.
The confusion for these consumers, however, lies in the disconnect between cannabis culture’s long history and the recent cannabis surge. The seemingly misleading strain names are rooted in the deep values and ideals of a vintage cannabis era.
To help navigate the most flavorful strains—often the first choices for beginners—we’ve compiled a list of the 10 Tastiest Sounding Cannabis Strains and their effects.
The well-loved Italian frozen dessert is now in cannabis form. Gelato is a gourmet mix of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. It has a medley of fruity, cookie, mint, and lavender flavors. This THC-packed strain is said to help with fibromyalgia, nausea, insomnia, and lack of appetite. Gelato provides a boost of energy and euphoric lift. Gelato’s potency is delightful and its delicious flavor-profile is the cherry on top.
White Cookies was developed by crossing White Widow and Girl Scout Cookies. It smells like a blend of lemon and pine, and has a buttery cookie flavor. The strong body high it produces works well to dissolve the tension of stress, mood issues, anxiety, and nausea. Despite a high THC-content, it won’t make you jumpy. White Widow relaxes, but also sparks creativity. This just might be your new yummy go-to wake and bake strain.
Swap your cup of coffee for the delectable Chocolope. Seductive cocoa and coffee notes intertwine beautifully with sweet hints of melon. This name is a portmanteau of its parents: Chocolate Thai and Cannalope. Despite its funny (but still tasty) sounding name, Chocolopes mood enhancing and energizing effects are no joke. It is effective at curbing stress, depression, and PTSD. It perks you up in ways that coffee can’t: No jitters, just a lucid and euphoric high.
If you love custard desserts, you will adore this three-way cross between Blue Black, Maple Leaf, and White Rhino. It derives its name from the taste and aroma of crème caramel. Relaxing, anti-depressant, pain-relieving, and time-warping. It is the perfect sit-and-stay strain. Cream Caramel is the ultimate dessert-y, dream-like indulgence. You will find yourself begging for another bite, or puff.
Blueberry is a true classic strain. It’s a solid relaxer with a timeless flavor. It is one of the cannabis strains that taste and smell exactly like fruit. The smooth taste melts in your mouth as deep relaxation and euphoria set in. It scores more points for its potency, long shelf life, and lasting pain-killing effects. Blueberry will melt all the stress, worries, and blues away.
It tastes and smells like juicy strawberries so much that when you close your eyes you forever melt into endless acres of strawberry fields. Strawberry Cough increases appetite and helps with a wide array of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, seasonal affective disorder, PTSD, and paranoia. While its flavor and aroma impress the senses, the thick smoke it produces throws even the most seasoned smokers into a coughing fit.
You don’t need any festivity to light up Candy Cane. This holiday-themed hybrid has a fruity and sour flavor with mild menthol undertones. Besides its succulent taste, this strain is loved for its ability to keep your spirits high, stimulate appetite, and fight off fatigue and tension. Candy Cane is flavorful and powerful. It’s a great pick-me-up strain for those who find it difficult to make it through the day.
This strain has a distinctive smell and flavor that mirrors chewey bubblegum. Notes of berries, flowers, and cream linger on your tongue after the smoke is gone. Bubblegum gives a nice body and cerebral high. It offers relief from chronic pain, body tensions, menstrual cramps, migraines, headaches, anxiety, and nausea. It also causes a serious case of giggles—and then munchies.
Entice your senses with a sweet berry scent accented by floral undertones and a sugary aftertaste. Sweet Tooth has an outstanding knack for stimulating the Endocannabinoid system in such a way that makes you instantly feel better. It conjures up warm and cozy feelings of being wrapped in a blanket. It works amazing for insomnia, depression, glaucoma, pain, and inflammation. Sweet Tooth lives up to its name. Even the most discerning smokers will find it enjoyable.
Juicy Fruit almost meets the exact flavor profile of its namesake chewing gum. Those suffering from eating disorders, nausea, stress, and depression, and muscle spasms will find benefit from the energetic and relaxing effects. This happy strain also shifts your imagination into high gear and seemingly slows down time. Juicy Fruit tastes like a fluffy cotton candy dream, and feels divine. It also alters reality so treat it like an edible.
