A quick rush leads to a euphoric burst immediately before relaxing into a full-body stone. This dominant hybrid strikes a good balance between the Sativa and Indica effects.

4. Durban Poison
Durban Poison is definitly one of the best Sativa dominant marijuana strains of all time. Suitable for indoors but also hardy enough for outdoor cultivation, even in extreme northern or southern climes. Durban Poison seeds are native to South Africa and were first crossed back in in the 1970s.
Durban Poison gives a sharp, stimulating, stimulating effect. This is the perfect variety if you want to stay productive or finish creative tasks during the day. It will get you high, but you can still face the outside world without feeling uncomfortable or paranoid.

Super high in CBD, Cannnatonic is one of the most popular medicinal strains on the market. Although it offers a gentle buzz rather than a powerful high, the THC content is extraordinarily high at around 15%!

7. OG Kush
OG Kush cannabis seeds are one of the most famous cannabis seeds in the world, mostly thanks to Snoop Dogg. He made numerous references to these seeds in his music, but the popularity of these cannabis seeds are also because of their taste and quality.
Despite what you may have heard, OG Kush doesn't stand for Original Gangster, but for Ocean Growth - these seeds originated on the Pacific coast of Northern California.

8. Acapulco Gold

Acapulco Gold is guaranteed to hit you hard if you are a novice smoker.
However, if you are an experienced smoker, you will feel very relaxed, perhaps a little heavy behind the eyes and will undoubtedly appreciate the superb stoned buzz that has led to Acapulco Gold being one of the world's most iconic smokes.
ACDC was first cultivated by Resin Seeds and has a Sativa-to-Indica ratio that is very close to 50:50 so you will not be surprised to hear that it would be capable of producing a clean and balanced high - if it had enough THC to create a high.
You might be surprised to hear that ACDC is a Sativa-dominant phenotype of Cannatonic (with even less THC meaning that it is hardly psychoactive at all and is one of the most medicinal strains around).
ACDC is not suitable if you want cannabis that will get you high. If you are looking for weed for medicinal purposes, it certainly fits the bill. ACDC allows you to experience all the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without any of the psychoactive effects.
AK-47 is a variety of marijuana with a firm lineage that is believed to have origins in the post-war 1970s as a Thai and Afghanistan hybrid. However, AK-47 itself did not manifest until the early nineties. The strain was subject to further modifications in 1999 and definitly belongs to one of the best marijuana strains of all time.

Its euphoric effects of heightened alertness are great for getting the daytime chores done, or engaging in social activities as well as alleviating anxiety.
AK 47 is known to give users 'the munchies' so can be used to increase appetite as well as reducing vomiting and feelings of nausea.
