The AK47 strain is a classic Sativa-dominant hybrid created by mixing Colombian (Sativa), Mexican (Sativa), Thailand (Sativa), and Afghanistan (Indica). The Banana Kush strain was the result of combining the OG Kush,Skunk #1, and Haze strains.
With this genetic lineage, I assumed that the AK Banana stain would be closer to the Sativa end of the spectrum. However, the effects that I experienced made me believe that it is nearly a 50/50 hybrid.
However, this time around seemed to stand out even more with their offering of Holy Grail Kush and the AK Banana strains.
Like the name would suggest, this batch of AK Banana had a subtle banana aroma that filled the room once the flowers were broken up. I was happy to see that this banana influence translated into taste exceedingly well.
The effects I experienced with this batch of the AK Banana strain were deceptively heavy. It was a sort of couch-lock I’ve never really encountered in the past. My mind wasn’t at all tired or cloudy, but my body did not want to move…at all.
I found the AK Banana strain to be a great option when in need of relief from chronic stress and anxiety. It may also benefit those who suffer from depression, schizophrenia, muscle spasms, migraines, and more.

the genetics most likely consist of the AK47 and Banana Kush strains.

Afghan Hawaiian is a sativa dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created as a potent cross between the hugely popular UK Cheese X Lavender strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 18-22% on average and a myriad of both indica and sativa effects. Users describe the high as having an immediately uplifting onset that leaves you aroused, creative, and slightly dizzy. You’ll feel happy and euphoric before falling into a state of deep relaxation without loss of functionality. Due to these potent effects, Afghan Hawaiian is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as neurological disorders and spasticity as well as muscle spasms and chronic pain. Afghan Hawaiian buds have small dense round popcorn-shaped neon green nugs with light gold undertones and translucent amber hairs.
Purple Kush Feminized seeds where engineered in California in the late nineties as a crossing between Purple Afghan and Hindu Kush. Purple Kush is a 100% indica strain which results in a short and dense marijuana plant with compact but heavy buds. The beautiful purple leaves full of resin makes is a wonderful marijuana plant to grow. A good strain to grow outdoor in, especially in Mediterranean climates.
Purple Kush Feminized smell a bit dank, just like other Kush strains do. While smoking Purple Kush you will get into a state of total relaxation, great for people with sleep deprivation to get a good night rest.
A lovely strain that derives from Shishkaberry X God bud.
It has a strong pungent aroma of sweetness with earthy undertones.
Beautiful round buds that are quite dense and covered in THC trichomes.
Ideal for patients with Chronic pain, Depression or Insomnia.
With so many different types of haze put together it is no wonder why Chocolope is known to predominantly affect the head with a tranquil mind-warp. It is a stable Sativa master-piece that is easy to grow, produces well, and hits noticeably smooth.
It’s important to note that this strain doesn’t actually have that strong of a chocolate stench. It is much more of a sweet grapefruit aroma with only slight undertones of chocolate.
This makes sense, considering that the Chocolate Thai strain doesn’t have the most obvious chocolate aroma either.
It seemed to calm the nerves instantly, while providing a decent amount of uplifting energy. It quickly became one of our favorite Sativa strains to medicate with before a long day of work. It tends to make the day more enjoyable.
The Chocolope strain may benefit those suffering from depression, chronic stress, fatigue and more.
Common sense told me that the Purple Crack strain was most likely the result of crossing the ever-popularGreen Crack strain with some variation of Granddaddy Purple. However, I quickly learned that the Purple Crack strain is actually a cross of Green Crack and the Juicy Fruit strain (aka Fruity Juice).
Knowing this, I was excited to see how these two classic Sativa-dominant hybrids would come together. The racy effects traditionally associated with the Green Crack strain are precisely what I look for when medicating in the morning. Combining these effects with the sweet flavor of the Juicy Fruit strain created some significantly high expectations in my mind.
As is often the case when smoking or vaporizing cannabis, the effects of the Purple Crack strain started to present themselves almost instantly.
I did experience a slight energy boost, but it was much more mellow than the fast-paced experience that I’ve come to expect when medicating with the Green Crack strain. The effects were far more consistent with my expectations of the Juicy Fruit strain, which is often more of a cerebral experience that helps spark my imagination.
Overall, I would say the Purple Crack strain is good option for patients looking to relieve stress and depressionduring the day. It may also be beneficial for patients who suffer from PTSD, OCD, neuropathic pain, social anxiety and more.
Cali Kush must have been a no-brainer when it came time to name this strain given the popularity of Kush varieties in The Golden State. Its buds are large and dense with few leaves and not many pistils. The flowers will be light green shot through with icy blue and packed with trichomes throughout. Cali Kush buds have a fruity citrus aroma with the darker coffee notes of a kush. Spicier tones and the coffee kushness are more apparent in the taste. The indica-dominant variation of this hybrid has been more popular, but a sativa-dominant version has also been spotted.
The Alaskan Thunder (ATF for short) strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativa genetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only affects your head and is a popular choice of medication for medical marijuana patients suffering from chronic migraines, PTSD, sleep disorders, and more.
The Alaskan Thunder Fuck strain is known for its ability to create a soaring, cerebral head-high. It can definitely take your mind for a ride, so you may want to start with low quantities (1-2 puffs), if you are a first-time patient who is afraid of experiencing any sort of paranoia.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck should be considered a morning or day-time Sativa due to its peaceful, uplifting nature. This strain always makes me feel more talkative than normal, and even more intellectual at times, due to its deep, thought-inducing high.
Candyland strain on my recent trip to SFVDM in Van Nuys, CA. After being on the prowl for a good batch of this strain for months, I couldn’t be more excited to see it on the shelf.
Ken Estes has a history of creating award winning hybrids, and the Candyland strain is his latest creation. It stems from two Grand Daddy Purp Collective classics – Bay Platinum Cookies and Ken’s Grand Daddy Purple (GDP).
As far as genetics are concerned, the Bay Platinum Cookies strain is a combination of the Bay 11 strain (an unknown Sativa) and a Platinum Cookies phenotype from the Bay Area. Combine this with the Ken’s GDP strain’s genetic lineage (Big Bud X Purple Urkle) and you have quite the cocktail.
Overall, I would expect the Candyland strain to be great option for stress and anxiety relief. It may also be beneficial for patients who suffer from PTSD, OCD, neuropathic pain, depression, and more.
This bud steals its appearance from its Big Bud and Skunk parents, with oversized lumpy popcorn-shaped nugs that have a deep purple color to them and a super thick and frosty coating of trichomes and sticky sweet resin. Like the name suggests, Big Skunk Korean has a heavy powerful pungent skunky aroma with hints of hashy earth. The taste is a bit lighter,…
Look – This strain looked way more like Sour Diesel than Strawberry Cough. Darker green spear tip shaped buds with peach colored pistils, the trichome coverage gives it a grey looking color under certain lighting. This bud isn’t too compact, not really airy though.
Smell – I didn’t really notice a Strawberry smell, this particular phenotype leans heavily towards Sour Diesel and smells just like diesel fuel or a gas station with earthy kush undertones.
Taste – Same as the smell, very fuely with a great fuel/kushy earth aftertaste. This smoke is nice and thick on the inhale/exhale and the Strawberry Cough comes through with nice expansion in the lungs.
Effects – Strawberry Diesel is a pretty heady marijuana and it also gives a nice body relaxation. Smoke a little of it during the day to receive a lighter head effect, then smoke more at night to help you sleep. I also noticed an onset of munchies. This is a very good all around marijuana strain.
Medical Uses – Anxiety, depression, stress, muscle relaxation, pain relief, appetite, sleep aid
High Yield, Fast Finish… Jack Herer is the ultimate performer, a dashing mix of heritage and knowledge. The result? A big harvest sativa that became an instant classic when it was introduced.
We took our time to develop this new school strain. The quest was to breed a plant that combined the greatest characteristics of the greatest plants. It took time – years – to get the strain just the way we wanted it, but the result was worth it. A femme fatale that packs a punch.
The strong sativa genetics of this plant mean that it can climb and those side branches will reach for the space to support its bounty of long and well formed buds. Indoor growers with limited space may look to pruning and bending methods to control the growth; more information is available from our Jacky White grow report. A prinicpal characteristic that appeals to those with indoor set ups is Jacky White’s reputation for stability, meaning consistency with results.
medicinla marijuana is the best friend of the outdoor gardener, hardy and low maintenance. Give it some space and moderate sunshine and it will reward you with a plant that strikes a fine pose, making it a favorite with sativa aficionados in southern regions of the world.
Connoisseurs in northern climes are in luck too, because this plant also thrives in more moderate climates. It may not give you the optimum yields but the skinny gene makes Jacky White mold resistant and its natural hardiness means you’ll be smoking by Halloween. The reward is tasty too – a sunshine buzz to smooth your way into that northern winter.
An immediate hit when it first came out, this plant’s reputation still burns strong. That’s because: for a fast growing, high yielding plant, the effects are just so damn good… An overwhelming experience served on a layer of citrus ‘haze’.
Smoke this and you will have a smile for the rest of the day. It is the creative’s choice with rushes of energy and inspiration making it perfect for heightened focus.
