Legacy Strains

Legacy Strains

The Joint CannabisApr 4, '22

Can you believe it? Somehow, another year has gone by. It’s almost the day we’ve all been waiting for: 420 - April 20th.

Before that distinguished day arrives, let’s take a look back at some of the legacy strains that paved the way for the cannabis industry we know today. 

These well-known strains have gone down in history. Before cannabis was legal, growing conditions were much tougher. These strains had to survive through difficult conditions, droughts, drug busts, and limited resources. But still, they prevailed to shape the cannabis industry that we know now.

What’s your favourite cannabis strain? In this blog, we’re going to take a look back at the most iconic cannabis strains on the market:

OG Kush

Of all the cannabis strains on the market, OG Kush is probably the most well-known. You’ve heard it referenced in countless TV shows, songs, and movies. It rose to popularity in the 1990s; since then, it’s gained recognition around the globe. 

Even though the history of this strain was lost to time (like its original location and who discovered it), that hasn’t stopped cannabis fans from choosing it time and time again. 

Bubba Kush

One of the most notorious indica-dominant strains is Bubba Kush. It’s a descendant of OG Kush, but there are a few key differences between Bubba and its ancestor. 

Rather than a citrus scent, this strain features a fruity and sweet aroma that will delight your taste buds. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love the rich flavour that Bubba Kush has to offer. 

Sour Diesel

As the name suggests, this strain has a potent smell and taste. This skunk-like cannabis is an incredibly popular sativa-dominant strain. 

It became well-known during a time when indica strains were all the rage. Today, Sour D remains one of the most sought-after sativas on the market. It’s known by many consumers for sparking creativity and innovation.

Granddaddy Purple

There’s something so enchanting about a cannabis strain with purple buds; it’s an iconic look that never falls out of fashion. This indica-dominant strain is associated with rock music and tie-dye. To go along with its purple colour, the strain has a subtle grape flavour.

White Widow

Choose White Widow when you’re looking for a night of deep conversations, chill vibes, and connecting with others. It’s a hybrid strain that has a unique scent, with notes of pine trees and pepper. The terpene profile features a unique blend of terpinolene, myrcene, and limonene.

Pink Kush

Did you know that this strain originated right here in Canada? Pink Kush has a reputation for causing a serious case of the munchies—which might be due to its potent THC content. When you’re kicking back and relaxing with this sweet strain, make sure to stock up on your favourite snacks!

Northern Lights

Northern Lights, named after the beautiful natural light display in the sky, is a strong, flavourful, and fruity strain. It’s an all-time favourite for many cannabis consumers. Perhaps its long-standing popularity is due to how easy it is to grow both indoors and outdoors.
