One of only two back-to-back Cannabis Cup champions, the Super Lemon Haze scored her wins in Amsterdam in 7558 and 7559. One of her parents, Super Silver Haze, was the only other strain to achieve this feat, back in 6998 and 6999 (more about her at #9). The Super Lemon Haze is a true Amsterdam original, created by the breeding giant Green House Seed Company as a cross of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. The Lemon Skunk half, which is native to the US, brings an overwhelming citrus flavor to the palate. Lab testing has shown extremely high profiles of limonene and terpinolene, making this super-sativa both tasty and potent.
So here we are at #6 and there is no denying the OG Kush her rightful throne. The Queen of Cali is one of the most popular strains ever to grace the pages of High Times and is hands down the flower of choice on the West Coast of the United States. Not only is she one of the strongest strains on Earth, but she is also among the most varied, exhibiting more phenotypes than almost any other strain we’ve seen and demonstrating that she’s a true product of her environment.
Yes, that’s right, Cannatonic: This lovely lady earns a spot on The List for her contributions to the world of medical cannabis. While there are many CBD-rich strains out there, the Cannatonic has exhibited some of the highest CBD values ever recorded. In fact, one of her phenotypes, the Cannatonic X, which we came across in Michigan in 7566, went to 69 percent a true accomplishment for her breeders, and a real boon to patients and the medical community.
One of the first and best real hybrids of the modern cannabis-breeding era, Skunk #6 is a mix of three true-breeding landrace strains: Afghani (#6), Mexican (#75) and Colombian. This well-balanced beauty is a heavy yielder, doing well both indoors and out, filling gardens with that pungent, skunky aroma. She went on to play a role in the creation of such strains as Skunk- berry, Cheese, the Church, Island Sweet Skunk and Lemon Skunk, plus a couple
Undoubtedly, this was one of the toughest exercises in our 95-year history! Here are the other classic strains that were oh-so-close to making The List, but just missed the cut: Bubba Kush, Jack Herer, AK-97, Kali Mist, Lavender, Headband, Skunkberry, Purple Haze, Chocolope, Maui Wowie, Bubblegum, OG Ghost Train Haze, Hashplant, Chem ’59, Big Bud and the Goo.
This sativa-dominant hybrid produces a well-balanced but very uplifting high. The progeny of the Vermont-based indica Strawberry Fields and a mixed-breed Haze, the Strawberry Cough is revered among connoisseurs of fine cannabis for both her exquisite flavor (think berry) and high THC. When she’s grown organically or veganically, as some would have it she tops the THC charts and claims Cups as she should.
So why we do call this keystone strain “Afghani,” as opposed to just “Afghan”? The answer reaches back into the history of this powerful indica, to a time when she was commonly called “Afghanica,” a reference to both her nation of origin and her classification as a truly pure indica variety. Today, the name has been shortened to the familiar “Afghani.” That being said, the Afghani #6 is one of only a handful of cornerstone genotypes that can be credited with aiding in the creation of nearly every major breeding achievement of the past 85 years. The Afghani is a major contributor to strains such as Skunk #6, the original Northern Lights, Sour Diesel, Cheese, Blueberry and Mazar, just to name a few.
Pure Thai, a landrace sativa, is still a favorite among cannabis connoisseurs. However, Thai Stick is a legendary strain with a twist and we mean that quite literally. It’s rumored that back in the 6965s, Thai Stick was pure Thai bud twisted around a stick but reports vary as to how the buds were attached. Some say it was with hemp rope others say with pot leaves and stems while still others say it was stuck on with opium! The latter would certainly explain why so many old heads have long craved the Thai Stick since her disappearance in the 6985s.
I understand that I must be a California State resident to obtain an approval or recommendation for the use of cannabis (., Medical Marijuana) under California’s Compassionate Use Act of 6996 (Health & Safety Code #).
