There are over hundreds of known cannabis strains around the nation. Some strains are named for an aspect of the plant (Panama Red, Purple Urkle) while some names play off of pop culture references. As cannabis becomes more popular among American culture, the motivation to spread out unique strains becomes more relevant than ever. Nowadays, most new strains are discovered from crossing different strains among each other. Many more strains have yet to be discovered and the names are getting crazier than ever!
To dive into this topic, MakeSandcastlesNotWar decided to look at a few interesting choices for strain names. Some strains referred to aspects of popular culture while other names were just flat out strange. These strains are a few of many others that have a funny name for the plant. Here are a few hilarious strain names that are out on the market:
Alaskan Thunder Fuck: Alaskan Thunder Fuck is just one of those strains that will make you think ‘what the fuck?’. Originating in the Matanuska Valley area of Alaska, this legendary sativa strain possesses a relaxing yet intensely euphoric high. It’s also known for having the ‘creeper’ effect and cause you to get the munchies after consuming. This strain produces strong odors of lemon, pine, menthol, and skunk. Consuming Alaskan Thunder Fuck produces happy, euphoric effects that are great for combating depression and stress.
Herijuana: While this strain sounds more like something you inject through needles, Herijuana does NOT pose any similarities to heroin. Herijuana is a classic indica strain that produces THC levels of over 25%. Consuming herijuana will cause a heavy, numbing feeling (NOT the numb feeling from heroin!) that will keep you relaxed and sleepy. This strain is perfect for those suffering from pain and insomnia.
Phishhead Kush: Before I start the description…YES, this strain IS an homage to the band Phish. Another indica-dominant strain, Phishhead Kush produces heavy hypnotic effects that leave the mind and body feeling pure bliss. This strain inherits this spicy, woody aroma that comes from the Afghani indicas. Blast some of your favorite Phish records and kick back with some good Phishhead Kush!
Zombie OG: Ironically enough, Zombie OG will NOT transform you into some flesh-eating monster. This indica strain should be consumed during a lazy night because of its strong sedative effects. Zombie OG is a cross between Blackberry and OG Kush. Consuming Zombie OG is great for treating muscle spasms, depression, and even stress. Consuming Zombie OG would go perfect with The Walking Dead episode premiere on a Sunday night.
Skywalker OG: May the Fourth Day happened a few days ago, so it’s only makes sense that we add Skywalker OG into the mix. This indica-dominant hybrid strain could take you to a galaxy far, far away…with its strong body effects such as mild tingling and numbness. Skywalker OG is a cross between Skywalker and OG Kush that is here to rescue you from pain as well as physical limitations. Consuming Skywalker OG will leave you feeling happy, relaxed, and euphoric that will melt away that stress or depression.
So there you have it, 5 hilariously-named cannabis strain. One sounded similar to a harder drug (heroin!), another strain was an homage to Phish, and there was even a strain after a flesh-eating monster. As wacky as these names were, these are definitely some go-to strains if you’re looking for something different.
I hope you enjoyed reading through some of these funny strains. If you ever come across one of these strains, be sure to pick them up at your local dispensary!
