There’s got to be a lot of excitement and anticipation when it comes to naming a strain in the cannabis industry.
It’s the culmination of countless hours of work – growing, curing and perfecting a new product to be released to the world, where it acts as an ambassador for its brand alongside other fantastically-named strains.
One thing’s for sure – when it comes to naming cannabis strains – there is no shortage of creativity.
(Based on absolutely nothing other than personal opinion) Here are some of the best-named strains across the industry.
1. Alaskan Thunder Fuck (ATF)
This heavy-hitting sativa originated in the Matanuska Valley area of Alaska, and brings strong pine, lemon, menthol and skunk odors.
2. Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien
Referred to as a “powerhouse strain”, Crouching Tiger Hidden Alien is a pine and spice flavoured indica.
3. Chuck Norris Black & Blue Dream
Rumoured to be as powerful as Chuck Norris’s legendary roundhouse kick (well done, marketing team), reviews say: you don’t smoke this bud … this bud smokes you.
4. Purple Monkey Balls
This is an indica dominant hybrid with a fruity grape aroma and sweet pine and berry flavours.
We love a good pun! Dopium is a potent, sativa-dominant hybrid cross between ChemDawg and Sour Diesel.
6. Barack O Bubba
This Bubba Kush spinoff is a tribute to the 44th President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama. In a nod to Obamacare, reviews identify this as an excellent strain for medical patients, featuring high levels of CBD and THC.
7. Where’s my Bike?
This high-THC sativa-dominant strain is a cross between Amnesia and Biker Kush, featuring earth, herb, spice and berry scents.
