Which strain should everyone have grown/tried once in their lifetime?

Post by weedabix »

Hi,
in prohibition it's usually difficult to get a choice that goes beyond 1 baggy or 3 baggies. One reason I started growing is the variety of strains with the different effects flavours and other properties. The first time I tried choosing a strain I was so overwhelmed, I bought tons and I am not sure I bought the right ones. So in your opinion (and I know it's a very subjective topic) what are the strains one should try?
I'm not after the best strains (because that is even more subjective) - I'm rather after the strains that define cannabis as a whole! E.g. it seems like it's a must to try something like a Northern Lights because it's been such a go-to strain for a long time but then I also think something like a Durban Poison should be in there and a cookie (because it's so popular - there must be a reason!)
So my list (by no means extensive) is:
- Northern Lights
- Durban Poison
- Blueberry (I did Blue Dream instead - I know not the same but maybe in a similar category?)
- Something Purple
- Something Cookie
- Something Kushy
- Something Cheesy
- Something Skunky

You see where this is going? So taste apart: What are the most iconic strains, the most defining effects and flavours, the most educational grows, the most historically significant strains?

And to take it further - is this even possible from seeds or is the difference in chemo- pheno- and genotypes so huge that buying (or winning ;-)) these seeds doesn't make any difference?

Sorry for this long winded question - I'm curious what you think and hope you understand what I am getting at!

Proper luton cut cheese from clone
Everything I've done with glue in it I've liked so gorilla glue.
Finally a long long time ago in the past in a galaxy far far away me and a mate got an 8th of something we were told was called white wizard, never have I had such a strong narcotic smoke, half a joint between four people proper face melting wrecks. None of us have had anything like it since. We use to smoke alot more back then aswel. Something in the back of my mind tells me the breeder was world of seeds, but I dont know why I think that. So if you can find it white wizard.

I'd say the strains I'd keep forever now is exodus cheese, chiesel and agent orange. I'd like to grow Northern lights myself and try it.

the absolute best strain i ever smoked was grown by a genuine old hippy, bred by himself over about 15 years, and he called it wizards beard. He wouldnt tell me what it was strain wise, i dont think he could remember to be honest, but id guess there was either original white rhino or widow crossed with something fruity, but every time i asked him about it he would just say - it doesnt matter, and "no" he wasnt giving me a cutting, so much for the peace and sharing - git...
it was honestly white with trichs, grown organically, by an expert level grower, and it was sublime....

but yes strains that define cannabis
skunk #1 - sensi
jack herer-sensi
critical-sensi
AK47 - serious
cheese- luton, exodus or psychosis cut
blueberry- dj short
sour diesel- soma seeds - but hermie prone
ak47-serious
afghan#1-sensi
white widow - sensi
NL#5 - sensi

there are loads more, but if you look at these above, there are very few modern strains that don't owe something to them either direcly or not.

Great post and interesting subject for sure, I don't have a go to I've not found the one yet 😂 I find all the write ups and feelings a certain strain should produce is different for every person.

I know I will always stay away from cheese don't like it it doesn't effect me it actually makes me angry like some alcohol does to some people, BUT I know people that swear by it and want it all the time.
Again this all comes down to how it's grown what it's grown with everyone's tastes are different.

I work the opposite to what do I want to grow and make a note of things I WON'T grow because I do it for me and no one else. As you said it's like child in a sweet shop trying to pick a strain😂 until you smoke it or grow it you don't really know how it'll effect you 🤷‍♂️

From past visits to Amsterdam I've always enjoyed smoking

White widow
Jack herror
Orange bud
And my fav from back in the day but can't find it now was a northern light x purple haze that's all I knew it as and only ever found it Dam

Recent ones I've liked are from a mate grows
Rainbow glue
Bruce banner
24k tangie

Already a bunch of great ones listed in here. Of strains not already mentioned I remember these strains being big throughout the years and they’re some of my favorites: tangerine dream (Barney’s), sweet tooth (Barney’s), LA confidential (DNA), G13 haze (Barney’s), chocolope (DNA), SFV OG kush (Cali Connection), and bubblegum (Serious). Also, I’m super interested in trying the C99 crosses from Brothers Grimm. I loved C99 back in the day.

Alreayd got a lot of good answers here weedabix

I do like me some bubba kush and the one strain that I have had that was so white with trichomes it was like powdered sugar that strain was called Gods Hands. Lord knows which breeder or seed shop that was from.

exactly my dilemma! I don't know where to start! I know those flavours and especially effects from certain moments in my life - but none of it had a name!

Nice thread :puff puff:

I've not grown anywhere near as many strains as I would like but out of those that I have I'd have to say Cinderella 99. Lovely stuff

I didn't grow it and it's not a classic by any means but I had some lovely Blue Cheese a while back. Perfect stone for me at the time

Real DJ Shorts Blueberry, the original and the best BC bud strain around. Locktite is pretty amazing. Roadkill Skunk is my personal favourite as far as high goes although Caramela is up there as well as Supermellon as well. There’s also a number of strains in my top ten that we’ve breed under our Chronnabis and SangriaAndSmoke names that are great such as Midnight Mango and Cheesus Christ Superstar

Good idea for a thread gonna be trying some new ones I’m sure

100 percent the price is stupid!!! and the quality has went way down hill since it was released, I should of worded it better but I ment the Og like F1s and shit from him back when they were also a normal price was unreal. Haven’t had it in a while so I’m sad to hear they haven’t picked it back up
