The Best Cannabis Strains in the USA

USA cannabis strains have made a significant impact on the hybrid market by introducing new and exotic flavors. These strains have delighted cannabis enthusiasts with their unique and intense aromas and tastes.

What Makes USA Strains So Popular?

Many wonder why USA strains have gained such popularity in recent years. While hybrids started gaining popularity in Holland during the 80s and became the norm in the following decades, the USA has taken the lead in recent years.

The success of USA strains can be attributed to their terpene profile, which determines the aroma and flavor of each strain. These strains have surprised consumers with their original and intense flavors.

Although some USA strains may not yield high quantities, cannabis enthusiasts choose them for their exceptional quality and strong aromas.

The Most Acclaimed USA Strains

The modern hybrid industry originated in California, USA. California is where the first stabilized hybrid, Skunk 1, was created, along with legendary strains like Haze.

Some of these strains were later moved to Holland, where they were stabilized and bred, resulting in popular strains like Amnesia, Jack Herer, and White Widow. Dutch strains dominated the market for a long time due to their strength, yield, flavor, and stability, making them the go-to choice for growers worldwide.

However, in recent years, US breeders have impressed consumers with unique flavors such as Diesel-like strains with a characteristic “diesel” flavor, exemplified by OG Kush, and creamy dessert-like flavors found in strains like Wedding Cake and Cookies. These strains prove that there are still new flavors to discover and enjoy.

A Guide to the Most Delicious Strains on the Market

Choosing the right strains for outdoor grows can be challenging. To help you make your selection, we have compiled a list of our favorite USA strains known for their outstanding flavors.
