Now that marijuana is closer to being legalized (or, at least, tolerated) in dozens of states, smokers are discovering that quite a few advances have been made in the field of weed hybrid organics. Gone are the Hippy days when stoners were, literally, nickeled and dimed. Crossbreeding and selection are producing strains for every taste, much like fine wines or cheese. Here are some of the most popular. And weirdly named…
Perhaps the first cross-breed hybrid, this strain recalls the era when pot was hustled on the street and the name Maui Waui meant you had the best. But, then, as now, its main attribute is sheer power. Far out, Man!

Girl Scout Cookies
The “comfort food” of hybrid strains, GSC has an earthy, sweet taste and is most effective for treating pain, nausea and loss of appetite.
The highest quality of the Indica strain, GDP is best known for treating more severe pain and helping patients overcome lethargy. If you don’t feel better after a toke of Granddaddy, you may as well be catatonic. Speaking of which…
Cannatonic is the closest new hybrid to old school, mind bending weed which produces an overwhelming desire for “Munchies” – the best way to cure appetite problems. And binge watch on Netflix…
The most popular new strain because it balances pot’s peculiar ability to stimulate creative thought while producing a relaxing euphoria. As far as the ultimate new hybrid strain is concerned, It’s a Blue Dream come true…
