Apple Tartz, bred by Clearwater Genetics, is a cross between the ever-so-popular Runtz with Apple Fritter, another Northern California strain. Runtz is a very popular strain from the well known and established Cookies Fam. The Cookies Fam is based in the Bay Area and has grown some of the most famous and iconic strains, most notably, the original Girl Scout Cookies, now known as GSC or simply “Cookies” to avoid conflict with the organization of the same name. Almost everything the Cookies Fam puts out is a hit, and Runtz is no different. It’s well hyped, but there’s substance there, as the seeds are rare and not generally available. The taste is sweet and makes for the perfect dessert strain. The THC is moderate, but the high is pleasant.
Screaming in with it’s delicious, booming banana flavor profile, this bud warrants both of it’s namesakes with the tropical, buttery sweetness of a banana, turned up to maximum volume like the howl of a banshee.

Noon to night, it’s a favorite for those who love the fruity terp profiles, and the perfect entryway for those who are still not sold on them. The high is a perfect, middle-of-the-road hybrid. It allows for all forms of activity or relaxation, and is a great all day smoke for the entire spectrum of cannabis enthusiasts.
The waters of Chemdog’s lineage are murky and hard to trace.

One of the most distinct and popular flavor profiles out there, Chemdog91’s zesty lemon/lime punch and gassy zing is universal, classification defying, and beloved by cannabis enthusiasts of all walks and ages.

The sativa-dominant hybrid Cinderella 99 is a potent strain that smells of tropical citrus and tastes of sweet lemons with an earthy undertone. It’s THC content averages at 18% with some crops topping off at 22%. It’s high is often defined as perfect to uplift creativity, create a dreamy mood, and it offers a light body high. It often increases energy, and many claim that it can be used throughout the day, though its high usually lasts around 90 minutes. However, you don’t need much to feel this strain’s effects. Reviewers note that a little goes a long way. Paranoia is a known ill side-effect if you consume too much at once, along with a mild headache or dizziness. This strain’s parents are under debate. Some believe they are a cross between Jack Herer and Shiva Skunk.
Very potent, one of the most greasy strains other than Cherry Pie that smell of gas. It’s recommended as a nighttime smoke. Very dense, dark and sticky buds.
GMO is a Sativa-Dominant hybrid strain created by crossing the infamous breed, Girl Scout Cookies Forum, with the equally respected ChemDog D. The GMO Pheno was founded by Skunkmasterflex. GMO may also go by several aliases: Garlic Cookies, GMO Cookies, Chem Cookies, or Garlic Mushroom Onion. Why? Well, GMO also stands for a genetically modified organism, and this goes against the organic, natural ethos of many consumers and dispensaries.
The GMO name is highly disputed, but its aroma is unlike any other. It’s rich, funky smell is an earthy blend of pungent garlic, mushroom, and onions with very gassy and very skunky undertones. Like many great Indica-Dominant hybrids, GMO produces a wonderfully versatile high. The head high leaves you feeling stoned, but not so stoned that you can’t function. Both happiness and creativity follow that first toke, which makes GMO the perfect strain for anyone struggling with creative blocks. It’s a seriously strong skunk that packs a punch in smell, taste, and effects. One toke and you will see why it is much loved.

Grease Monkey is an indica-dominant hybrid from Exotic Genetix, the breeders who created standout strains like Kimbo Kush and Starfighter. Grease Monkey is a cross between the couch-locking indica Gorilla Glue and Exotic’s own hybrid Cookies and Cream. It imparts a thick and lazy body stone, and some subtle mental stimulation. Grease Monkey also carries the sweet and musky flavor profile that will be familiar to fans of strains in the Girl Scout Cookies family.
Just as it has many recreational uses, Grease Monkey also has a variety of applications for medical cannabis patients. It can be a balm for mild to moderate symptoms from stress and depression, and take the edge off of frazzled patients’ day-to-day lives. Its sedative properties can also soothe aches and pains of all kinds, whether temporary or chronic. Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory effects can be an effective treatment for everyday discomforts like nausea. In high enough doses, Grease Monkey can even counteract insomnia, lulling smokers into a deep and restful sleep. Because of the initial risk of an out-of-control “mind race,” this strain may not be the best choice for patients who are prone to panic.

Jedi Kush’s mood-altering ability also helps to improve symptoms from mild to moderate stress and depression.

Kosher Kush is a primarily indica hybrid that won the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in 2012. It has the distinction of being the first commercial strain blessed by a Rabbi. The blessing is thought to bring both enlightenment and a state of blissful tranquility. This strain produces a powerful but lazy body buzz that can leave novice users quite sedated, but it also lifts their moods with its sativa-based cerebral effects. New users suggest caution when using this strain as the sleepiness can be overwhelming. This attribute, however, makes Kosher Kush effective for treating insomnia and restlessness caused by anxiety and stress. Patients dealing with pain may also find it helpful due to its numbing body effects.
The flavor is initially quite earthy and pungent, but these grounding tastes quickly blend into the sweet citrus and pine of a dynamic flavor profile. Appearance wise, unlike some indicas, Kosher Kush grows tall; it’s typically higher than 2 meters when fully grown. That size is not typical of an indica, but the buds are. Leafy and featuring different shades of green, the buds are packed full of THC crystals. It’s as if a fresh bed of snow fell upon these frosty leaves. In between the bright green sugar leaves, brassy orange pistils curl and bend, blending amongst their high-inducing friends.
Kush Mints is a strain created by Seed Junky. It crosses Animal Mints and the classic Bubba Kush, resulting in a high-THC hybrid with a unique, mint taste.

Its relaxing effects will have you kicking back and pretty sleepy if you’re not careful. It starts with a warming tingle in the spine, filling you with a sense of deep relaxation that ebbs and flows through your limbs until you are totally calm in mind and body. With these effects and its high level of potency, Kush Mints is said to be the perfect treatment for conditions such as chronic pain, depression, chronic fatigue, nausea or appetite loss.
This cannabis hybrid strain combines all the traits of two firm favorites — UK Exodus Cheese and Emerald OG Kush. Kush-N-Cheese boasts very stable genetics that easily transmit its predominant cheese flavor with lemon diesel notes that linger on the tongue after just one toke. This strain can be used at any time of the day. Once smoked, the user will feel a happy and extremely mind-altering high, so it’s not recommended if you’re a first-timer.
Like other hybrid strains that pack a punch of flavor and THC, Kush-N-Cheese is great for a wide range of ailments. Medical users may take a toke or two at the beginning of their day to enjoy long-lasting relief from stress and depression, and individuals who often experience that 3 pm slump may find that this strain is their new favorite remedy. It can also address mild cases of pain including cramps, muscle issues, or headaches.
Both mental and physical effects are well represented here, as Kush-N-Cheese begins with a mental lift that’s joyful without being overwhelming. Your focus will sharpen slightly, and you’ll approach the rest of the day’s tasks with a new sense of vigor. As these sensations take hold of your mind, your body will experience a wave of buzzing that calms and relaxes you. Last but certainly not least, your high will include a case of the munchies, so make sure you have snacks at the ready.
MAC stands for Miracle Alien Cookies. This rare strain was bred by Capulator. MAC is an exceptionally popular strain due to its rarity, extreme resin production, and high THC content. MAC 1 is widely accepted to be the most desirable, most exotic, and most valuable of the MAC phenotypes because to date, not one cultivator has been able to hybridize it successfully. This ensures that, at least for now, the strain remains an elite clone-only variety. MAC 1 is an Indica-Dominant Hybrid with a tropical fruity front end aroma and a lingering citrus back end. MAC 1 flavor profiles include orange citrus, a sweet and sour base and a diesel back end. This strain is perfect to lighten the mood after a stressful day.
A brand new strain released just this summer, we don’t know much about its effects and flavor — yet. Colorful, dense buds have a decidedly sour, skunky overtone atop the juicy fruit bubblegum MAC nose. It has potential sativa effects.
