14 Dec Top 10 Strains at King’s Crew
The experience of cannabis is a personal one, and everyone has their favorite strain. Many cannabis connoisseurs look for products with specific terpene profiles that deliver distinct aromas, tastes, and desired effects based on their setting and mood. Some say the best cannabis strains help them to unwind after a long day, while others look for something that inspires them in their creative pursuits. No matter what you use cannabis for, our experienced Crew Members are here to help guide you through the selection process, starting with our current Top 10 Cannabis Strains at King’s Crew.
So, what characteristics define a premium cannabis strain to make it one of the best? There are a number of different methods for this and many buyers or cannabis enthusiasts have their own prerequisites for reviewing or rating a strain. But overall, the best cannabis strains should have unique scents and flavors that showcase the fresh nature of the plant. Flower buds should look beautiful and feel slightly spongy, and not dry. Most importantly of all, they should be covered in a nice layer of shiny trichomes. This combination of features will show you that you’re dealing with some top-shelf cannabis that contains plenty of cannabinoids and terpenes. With that in mind, here are the ten best cannabis strains at King’s Crew in Long Beach.
1 – Wedding Cake
Notably one of the most popular strains in California is Wedding Cake. Also known as Pink Cookies or Birthday Cake, this award-winning indica-dominant hybrid strain can be identified by it’s sparkling resin and vanilla-frosting aroma. Wedding Cake has been known to possess rather high levels of THC and can also be an appetite stimulant, so moderation is key when you treat yourself to this deliciously rich strain. Experiences vary from enhanced mood and euphoria, to clarity and body relaxation.
2 – Banjo
Banjo is a popular sativa-dominant hybrid strain that can be enjoyed in a variety of settings. Most people report feeling energized, focused or highly ‘tuned-in’ after trying this strain. It’s also said to be one of the more mentally stimulating hybrids on the market, ideal for anyone who wants to improve their mood and get creative. While one puff too many might start to make your eyelids feel a little bit heavy, many say this strain is a great choice at any time of the day.
3 – 24K
Also known as 24k Gold or Kosher Tangie, this balanced hybrid strain has been known for it’s relaxing properties and being a cross between two greats. It starts with an award-winning sativa, Tangie, combined with the famous Kosher Kush from Los Angeles. It’s a West Coast favorite, which makes it a must-have flower for here in Long Beach. This strain offers noticeable citrus notes in addition to some herbal pine flavors. It’s challenging to grow 24K, but experienced green thumbs can turn this flower into something worth its weight in gold.
4 – GG4
Also known as Gorilla Glue #4, Original Glue, or simply Gorilla Glue, it’s hard to imagine a list of the best cannabis strains without this one. This award-winning hybrid has been known for its calming effects followed by deep, restful sleep. As a good rule of thumb for beginners, if the word ‘glue’ is found within the strain name, you can be sure you’re in for a more relaxing high; as many report feeling ‘glued to their seats’. Not only is this a powerful strain in effects, but also in aroma, as earthy and sour aromas will fill the room as soon as you open the container.
5 – Afgooey
Occasionally shortened to Afgoo, Afgooey is an indica-dominant hybrid. It’s not clear how this earthy strain originated, but the name implies it comes from a combination of Afghani indica and the flavorful Maui Haze. The ‘goo’ in the name refers to the plentiful amount of resin coating the buds, which give the impression that it’s oozing out of a layer of trichomes. While this strain won’t give you ‘couch-lock’, it will still provide deep relaxation and help with insomnia. It’s uncommon for this strain to give off paranoia, so it’s perfect for those with anxiety or who have a low tolerance for THC.
6 – Blue Dream
This popular sativa-dominant strain originates from right here in California and has earned its place in the hall of fame among other West Coast favorites. Blue Dream is a dreamy mix of Blueberry and Haze, taking on some of the best qualities from both parents. With relatively high THC levels, motivation and uplifting effects define this strain, but some enthusiasts also seek it out because of its sweet and complex flavor. Your body may relax, but your mind is likely to feel as active as ever, making this a great daytime strain.
7 – Sour Diesel
Many good strains are referred to as “gas” nowadays, but Sour Diesel was one of the first to be known for its pungent diesel-like aroma. Often called Sour D, this sativa-dominant strain is believed to be a descendent of Super Skunk and Chemdog 91 that became wildly popular in the early 1990s. The heady, energizing effects has been known to provide uplifting experiences, creative inspiration, and can be a good choice for social interaction. Though, Sour Diesel has also been known to last a lot longer than other premium strains, sometimes an average-length high of 2-3 hours; so be cautious and adjust your intake accordingly.
8 – SFV OG Kush
Also known as San Fernando Valley OG Kush, this award-winning strain is another heavy hitter from right here in the Golden State. This sativa-leaning hybrid starts with a slight head-high, reliving anxiety and stress and then follows with a calm body high to ease aches and pain. The taste can be described as an earthy/pine flavor with a hint of citrus – but can be a slightly harsh smoke so we recommend vaporizing this strain to still get the full flavor with minimal severity.
9 – Skywalker OG
Skywalker OG is a popular indica-dominant hybrid strain from California that crosses Skywalker and OG Kush. The aroma of this strain can be described as spicy diesel with an herbal aftertaste. This strain is significantly more calming than it is energizing for most people, so it’s a great choice if you’re looking to relax and unwind without being too active. Skywalker OG has been known for relatively high THC levels, so it may not be ideal for beginners.
10 – Lemon Jack
This sativa-dominant hybrid strain combines Lemon Kush with the legendary Jack Herer – giving it some incredible genetics. Lemon Jack is easily recognized by it’s unique color combination and lemon scent. It makes an excellent daytime strain that has been known to make you feel energetic, focused, and uplifted. This immediate productivity boost has some even replacing their daily cup of coffee. Though new users beware – this full body buzz can also have a tendency to intensify anxiety, so go low and slow.
