Jack Herer is named after an American activist who advocated the legalisation of cannabis and the expansion of the use of hemp in many industrial applications.

The smoke is heavy, and you can feel it lingering for a long time in your mouth. It’s a weed that’s perfect for relaxing with friends, having a little laugh. The effect is a nice blend between stone and high, although the stone tends to be dominant. Jack Herer is ideal for the middle of the day to have a good mood and be relaxed.

3. Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is a legendary strain. Any Indica grower’s collection couldn’t be without her because she is definitely the best indoor strain in 2020. The history of one of America’s most beloved strains dates back to the 90s when Kush enthusiasts started breeding new breeds in Los Angeles.

Bubba Kush is suitable for all types of growers as she is really easy and drought tolerant. It provides wonderful results in exchange for very little attention. However, its incredibly broad leaves could prevent the buds in the centre from receiving the amount of light they need. For this reason, reasonable pruning is recommended. Bubba Kush is renowned for her excellent yields, not in quantity, but in quality: amazingly compact buds bursting with trichomes.

The Acapulco Gold strain requires proper care and requires little attention. When grown outdoors, this cannabis strain prefers a warm, subtropical climate, which is not surprising given its roots. Acapulco Gold is a cannabis plant with a sturdy structure. Its many branches produce red and gold-coloured buds covered with resin. Although it may take a little longer than other varieties, she produces generous harvests of excellent quality.

People suffering from insomnia, depression or anxiety depend heavily on this strain, as it is widely recognised to be one of the best remedies for these ailments.

Comfortable in warm outdoor environments, Gorilla Glue is relatively easy to grow for the average grower. Plants can get quite tall and need to be controlled when height is limited. Keep this strain away from excessive rain or frost if you are outdoors, and you will get plants that perform very well.

9. Bruce Banner

Bruce Banner, which takes its name from the alter ego of the Incredible Hulk, is a potent strain. With over 28% THC, Bruce Banner is one of the most forceful strains ever tested in the US Cannabis Cup.

This dominant hybrid strikes a pleasant balance between the Sativa and Indica effects. Bruce Banner’s energy is easily channelled into productivity, making this strain suitable for daytime or evening smoking sessions, although the potential is often a bit too much for use during working hours.
It is a joy to grow this strain: late in bloom, the fan leaves tend to form a rich dark magenta colour. A coating of large trichomes covers all surfaces, the buds are dense, fully frosted and slightly rounded. The fragrance of Bruce Banner is delightful with lemon undertones and leaves a light spicy taste.
