10 Most Underrated Marijuana Strains

Published on

When it comes to marijuana strains, there are certain types that everyone’s heard of and/​or tried, such as Girl Scout Cookies, Gorilla Glue or Sour Diesel. But a more sophisticated marijuana user may be looking for a strain that’s a little more under the radar.

Here are 10 of the most underrated marijuana strains:

10. CBD Critical Cure

At a 2:1 CBD to THC ratio, CBD Critical Cure is a strain that won’t give a super strong high, but create a nice relaxed feeling. If you’re looking for something mellow, this is the strain to go to.

9. Laughing Buddha

As you can expect given the name, the Laughing Buddha strain will produce a joyous high that will leave you giggling for hours. If you’re someone that’s ok with a high THC content, then this is the strain for you.

8. LA Confidential

Not only is this an underrated marijuana strain, it’s also an underrated movie as well! Although popular in Los Angeles, LA Confidential doesn’t have a huge popularity nationwide. Like LA, it’s known to be both sunny and relaxing.

7. Sour Tsunami

The original breeder of Sour Tsumani created this strain to help deal with his back pain. With a high CBD content, Sour Tsunami is the strain to go to help address chronic pain and other medical issues.

6. Dr. Grinspoon

Dr. Lester Grinspoon was a famous psychiatrist and marijuana activist who contributed greatly to cannabis science and research. So using this strain not only honors a pioneer in marijuana, but it’s also an energizing strain that’s perfect for people into wake n’ bake.

5. Tahoe OG Kush

Compared to other members of the OG family, Tahoe OG Kush is definitely more overlooked. But it’s a strain that’s sweet with a piney aroma that’s great for relaxation. It’s like the black sheep of the family that grows up to be the most successful one.

4. Chocolope Kush

Chocolope and Kosher Kush are two of the most popular marijuana strains around. So wouldn’t a hybrid of the two be equally as popular? Not quite the case. But this is the perfect example of getting the best of both worlds that people really need to try more.

3. Sour Urkle

Admittedly, this isn’t a strain for everyone. It’s known for having a very pungent aroma that’s complemented by a very sweet taste. But everyone will enjoy the strong, mellow aura that it creates.

2. Durban Poison

Durban Poison is actually a very hard strain to find, and people often pass off similar strains as the real thing. But people who’ve gotten their hands on the real thing say it’s an immediate classic that they’d happily do again.

1. Plushberry

If you live in Oregon or Washington, you’ve probably heard of Plushberry. If not, then you’re missing out. This popular strain in the Pacific Northwest smells like wildflowers and berries, and is considered one of the most beautiful strains with lavender foliage. If you’re ever in Oregon or Washington, you need to check it out.
