God’s Treat, bred from the holy matrimony of Dutch Treat and God Bud, is an indica-dominant hybrid from Jordan of the Islands Seeds. A fusion of candy and floral notes emanate from the crystal powdered buds clinging loosely to the stalk. Despite strong indica genetics, God’s Treat provides a mellow and uplifting experience suitable for either day or nighttime enjoyment. The surprisingly gentle cerebral effects make this strain a great choice for patients needing potent relief, but not sedation, throughout the day. The tall conic flowers surrounded by thin sativa-like leaves grow best with multi-branch cultivation in either indoor or outdoor gardens. Growers flock to God’s Treat for its resistance to mold and short flowering time of just 6 to 7 weeks.

Gorilla Glue, also known as “Gorilla Glue #1” or “420 Glue” is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the classic Chocolate Diesel X Sour Diesel strains. This bud packs a crazy powerful high that leaves you feeling like your mind is filled with glue, all fueled by an insanely potent 25-28% average THC level. The high starts with a cerebral rush that leaves you feeling happy yet totally hazy, with no hope of focusing on anything any time soon. As your head high build and builds, your body will be washed over with a deep body buzz, leaving you feeling completely stoned and immovable. These effects last for hours on end and often end in a deep sleep for the lesser experienced. Because of these effects, Gorilla Glue is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, depression, insomnia, nausea, and muscle spasms.
70% Indica/ 30% Sativa
Do-Si-Dos is an indica-dominant hybrid with qualities similar to its parent, OGKB, a GSC-phenotype. With glittering trichomes, bright pistils, and lime green and lavender leaves, this strain is a feast for eyes. Its aroma is pungent, sweet, and earthy with slight floral funkiness. These classic OG aromas blend nicely with medical-grade body effects that lean toward the sedative side with the addition of Face Off OG genetics. Enjoy a stoney, in-your-face buzz off the start that melts down over the body, prettifying the consumer with relaxation that emanates outward.
70% Indica/ 30% Sativa
Cherry AK-47 obviously comes from storied parents: It’s a phenotype of AK-47, a strain famed worldwide for its potency. The “Cherry” part of the name reflects its reddish-purple coloring and cherry aroma. THC levels can reach 16%, so Cherry AK-47 is moderately potent, while CBD concentration doesn’t exceed 1%. That means this isn’t a great choice for treating epilepsy. But it is helpful with lack of appetite, nausea, chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety. As a sativa-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio of at least 70:30), Cherry AK-47delivers both body and cerebral effects. The sensation is strongly euphoric and psychoactive. In addition to cherry, this strain smells of cream, sandalwood, mint, and rotten fruit, while it tastes of skunk. The bud is almost silver with shiny trichomes, growing on top of strands of green, brown, and gray. Cherry AK-47 can cause red eyes and dry mouth, while dizziness and paranoia are somewhat less likely. The medical markets in California, Colorado, and Arizona sell this effective but not especially popular strain, which might be found in other states with legal marijuana. It’s less likely on the black market, but may circulate there as well.
60% Indica/ 40% Sativa
Cookies, also known more commonly as “Girl Scout Cookies,” is an indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain created through a three-way cross of the potent OG Kush X Durban Poison X Cherry Kush strains.

OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida, in the early ‘90s when a strain from Northern California was crossed with a Hindu Kush plant from Amsterdam. The result was a hybrid with a unique terpene profile that boasts a complex aroma with notes of fuel, skunk, and spice.
The genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, OG Kush arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 when Matt “Bubba” Berger brought it (along with “The Bubba,” which was later used to create the famed Bubba Kush) from Florida to legendary cultivator Josh D. Since then, OG Kush has become a worldwide staple used to create numerous famous strains like GSC and Headband. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, including Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Ghost OG.
50% Indica/ 50% Sativa
Gelato (also referred to as “Larry Bird”) is a tantalizing hybrid cannabis strain from Cookie Fam and Sherbinski, following in the footsteps of its parents Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC. This Bay Area, California native gets its name from the fruity, dessert-like aroma, a common genetic thread among the Cookie family. Her buds tend to bloom in dark purple hues illuminated by fiery orange hairs and a shining white coat of crystal resin. Novice consumers may want to approach this THC powerhouse with caution, but those armed with a high tolerance will delight in Gelato’s heavy-handed euphoria. Physical relaxation comes on strong, but many find themselves still mentally agile enough to stay productive and creative when enjoying Gelato during the day.
60% Indica/ 40% Sativa
Wedding Cake, sometimes known as Pink Cookies, is a strain that leans on some very popular genetics to yield a balanced high and a dynamic taste. It is a cross between sour hybrid Cherry Pie and the universally appealing Girl Scout Cookies. And although its flavor may vary depending on the phenotype, Wedding Cake doesn’t exactly taste like any traditional nuptial dessert most have ever tasted — instead, its profile is mostly sour and tangy with just a hint of creaminess. Increasingly popular for its well-rounded effects, Wedding Cake has both recreational and medical applications. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has founded flowers of this strain to have between 16 and a staggering 25% THC.
This strain’s high starts relatively quickly, taking hold primarily in the head. Users may find their thoughts to be more fast-paced or intense, and may perceive their surroundings more acutely. In the right set and setting, this change in thinking is accompanied by feelings of giddiness or euphoria. Less than an hour into the high, Wedding Cake’s indica side kicks in. Smokers might feel increased warmth and a pleasant heaviness that spreads through the spine and limbs. Even in the midst of this sedation, though, cerebral stimulation continues, allowing users to feel uniquely “tuned in” to their surroundings. This holistic combination of mental and physical effects lends itself to complex activities like creating art, exercising, and even sex. As the high progresses, so does this strain’s body high — after a few bowls, smokers may find themselves couchlocked.
55% Sativa/ 45% Indica
As sweet as it is potent, Banana Punch is a cross between Banana OG and Purple Punch F2 that was bred by Symbiotic Genetics.

Smokers can expect heavy physical relaxation from a genetic that floods all the senses with luxuriant deliciousness. Mimosa by Symbiotic Genetics is a rising star in the cannabis community. A cross of Clementine and Purple Punch, this strain has garnered praise for its outstanding fruit punch, citrus rind aroma and pleasurable mid-level buzz. Like the beverage, there is no bad time to enjoy Mimosa, but if you enjoy too much, the trajectory of your day will need adjusting.
