If LA really is the City of Angels, then the Gods must be stoned – because this city has been blessed with some truly amazing marijuana. And just like those beautiful crops, the recreational industry is thriving as well. Growing bigger and more established everyday. Which is more than good for you, since it means that there’s more places to buy your bud. As you head into harvest season, it’s always nice to know about the current crops that are available.
Here’s our picks for the Top 10 Strains in Los Angeles.
1. Banana OG (Indica)
2. Biscotti (Indica)
3. Blueberry Shortcake (Indica)
4. Creamsicle (Hybrid)
5. Green Crack (Sativa)
6. Maui Wowie (Sativa)
7. OG Story (Indica)
Smoking this flower was a wonderfully smooth experience. The smoke had a medium flavor that wasn’t too heavy, or too strong. This Indica high is intense without being overwhelming. It’s a strong hit of focus, intensity, and energy. We felt a nice head buzz, as well as an electric feeling in our muscles that extended all the way from our spine to our fingertips. Unusual for an Indica, but very welcome.
8. Purple Rain (Hybrid)
9. Slymer (Hybrid)
This strain snuck up on us with ghostly quickness. We were feeling it after one hit. In fact, we were feeling it so strongly that our bowl remained half-packed for quite a long time. This Hybrid leaned towards the Indica side of things, with an effect that rivaled some stronger strains in terms of tuning out our brains. We weren’t necessarily ultra-focused or plagued by tunnel-vision, but any distractions on our radar were quickly diminished from sight.
10. Urkle Berry (Hybrid)
While this strain didn’t give us the giggles (unlike the real Urkel), it did give us a very powerful high. All of our distractions were gone, and our attention was rapt on the subject at hand. But our focus proved fickle, and soon we realized we had spent the last hour fleeting from one thing to the next. The last thing you should expect to be doing on this strain is sitting still.
