Top 10 Las Vegas Cannabis Strains

Contributor: Asia Mayfield

You’re at a Las Vegas dispensary.

The smell of skunky, earthy weed hovers in the air. Jars and bottles filled with dank buds can be seen everywhere you look. Your budtender wants to know- what are you going to buy?

Figuring out what to smoke can take forever. Everything on the menu sounds tantalizing. If you want to get blazed like a Las Vegas local, start scouring the list of sativa strains. Las Vegas stoners like to get pumped up. Spicy, cerebral sativas and euphoric hybrids are the most popular strains in the city.

Here are the top 10 Las Vegas strains you should try now

Tangie PreRoll and Packaging

1. Tangie - Sativa

Do I smell oranges? Tangie buds emit a sweet, citrusy aroma that fills the room. They’re small and dense like little orange-green pebbles. When you grind up the nugs, the colors mesh together into a brownish pile. Tangie is a wildly popular strain because it hits you with a happy head high.

Don’t be fooled by the numbers. The single gram Tangie pre-roll by Remedy has a meager 16% THC. In a world full of robust strains hitting 32% THC or more, Tangie doesn’t seem like much. At least, that’s what you might you think before taking a puff. The instant the smoke hits your lungs your body will be slammed with a wave of good feelings. Excitement will thrill your nerves as your mind races with creativity.

The smoke tastes lightly fruity. Just as your taste buds get used to the expected citrus taste, you’re suddenly overwhelmed by a vaguely metallic flavor that slices into everything else. It tastes a lot better than it sounds. The unexpected kick at the end makes the smoke more delicious.

You can find Tangie everywhere. Nearly every dispensary in town carries the strain.

Sour Diesel

2. Sour Diesel - Sativa

Smoking Sour Diesel reinvigorates your thoughts and gives your body a gentle pulse of energy. It’s one of the most famous strains in the world. People who don’t know what THC is have still heard of Sour Diesel.

Puffing on Tyson Ranch’s Sour Diesel pre-roll isn’t for the faint-hearted. There are no sweet notes to lure you in. The taste is sour, skunky, and instantly overwhelming. The strain’s Chemdawg heritage is obvious if you’re an experienced smoker. A pungent, grassy smell bursts from the joint.

Sour Diesel is a potent sativa. You’ll feel most of the effects in your mind. If you want to lose yourself to weed for a few hours, smoke a sour diesel joint. Your mind will soar to a happy realm. Smokers salivate after Sour Diesel because it can make you feel amazing.

To get as high as possible, smoke the pre-roll by yourself. Smoke half now and the rest later. When you decide to buy Sour Diesel, you’ve already committed to getting wicked stoned. Even daily smokers can’t walk away from this joint unfazed. Sour Diesel might be one of the most potent strains on the market.

Pineapple Express

3. Pineapple Express - Hybrid

Made famous by the Seth Rogan and James Franco movie, Pineapple Express is wildly popular among seasoned smokers. The buds are bright with twinkling trichomes and twirling strands of orange and brown hairs. Flora Vega’s Pineapple Express buds are unusually thick. They crumble in your fingers when you pick them up.

Pineapple Express doesn’t taste much like pineapple. But there is a noticeable lemon twang in the smoke, perhaps because of the rich amount of limonene in the strain. Limonene is a terpene that’s also found in lemons. Mixed with the citrus flavor is a strong, earthy taste.

READ  Tropic Lightning - Hybrid by Blackjack

The buds smell fruity and slightly sour. You must bring your nose close to the flower to really appreciate the smell. Pineapple Express earned its name because of the tropical overtones present in flavor and aroma.

Inexperienced smokers like this strain because it produces an easy, breezy high that most people can adapt to. These are the buds you want to smoke before hanging out with friends or seeing a movie. The vibe fits any low-key activity. You won’t need to peel yourself off of the couch, but you probably won’t feel like running a marathon either.

Wedding Cake

4. Wedding Cake - Hybrid

Wedding Cake buds often test at more than 25% THC. This is one of the most potent strains ever grown. Smokers crave the sweet, sultry smoke. The high creeps up on you, slowly loosening your muscles and freeing your mind from anxiety.

Reina is one of the premier brands at Planet 13. Their strains are mind-numbingly good. The Wedding Cake pre-roll by Reina is so tasty it wouldn’t be strange if you smoked it at your actual wedding. Why not have a stoner’s fete?

The weed is dark green and fluffy. Trichomes frost the buds. It’s hard to judge weed on its appearance, but if you could, Wedding Cake would rank high.

If you’ve never smoked before, get ready to have your mind rocked by Wedding Cake. The joint by Reina is so strong you might think it was infused with hash oil if you didn’t know any better. A couple of puffs of Wedding Cake would hit the spot after a grueling workout or tiresome day.

The smoke tastes sweet and cake-like with strong hints of vanilla. Imagine eating a vanilla wafer and a salad at the same time.

Gelato

5. Gelato - Hybrid

Gelato is a powerful hybrid that strips away your anxiety. The buds are often stained with purple and pink patches. The strain started dominating legal markets the moment it was introduced. Ripping a fat bong bowl stuffed with Gelato is a quick way to experience bliss. The effects of the high are almost entirely mental. Gelato is technically a hybrid, but it behaves like a heady sativa.

The strain is versatile. Some growers treat their Gelato like a premier strain while others treat it like a more common flower. 

Tryke, part of Reef Dispensaries, sells its one-gram Gelato pre-roll for $11. You and a friend or two can get high for a couple of bucks.

Gelato’s too fiery for its name. There’s nothing in the flavor that makes you think of ice cream. It tastes more like an old-fashioned cake that’s been cooked over an open fire. The smoke is obviously sweet, yet there’s also a deeper, muskier flavor that you can detect.

Gelato nugs smell a bit like burnt cookies. Tryke’s version is so strong that you can smell the weed from across the room. The aroma is highly tempting if you’re a stoner.

Heritage: Sunset Sherbert x Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies

Blue Dream

6. Blue Dream - Hybrid

These pungent buds smell like blueberry fruit juice. The smell immediately pulls your mind to the tropics. You can imagine sitting on a beach sipping a Mai Tai as the aroma fills your nostrils. Smoking Blue Dream is a hazy experience. The high barrels into you before you can catch your breath from the first hit.

If you’re going to stick with one strain while you’re in Vegas, you won’t be disappointed with Remedy’s Blue Dream. The buds sparkle with sticky trichomes. They’re testing at 24.4% THC with heavy amounts of myrcene and pinene. 

Blue Dream is a hybrid strain, but it smokes like a stereotypical indica. You feel the high in your limbs before it registers in your brain.

The smoke tastes sweet and tangy like a sour piece of candy. This is an easy strain to fall in love with. Inexperienced smokers like Blue Dream because the smoke is light and easy to inhale. You can take a big bong hit without feeling a harsh burning sensation in your lungs. Blue Dream buds make ideal joints and blunts because the smoke is so smooth.

Granddaddy Purple

7. Granddaddy Purple - Indica

Granddaddy Purple is a legendary strain. It exploded onto the scene in 2003. Since then, it’s dominated legal weed markets. The strain is a deep indica that’ll knock you out like a dose of Ambien. If you’re having trouble sleeping, try smoking a couple of puffs of Granddaddy Purple before bed.

State Flower’s Granddaddy Purple buds have a surprising look. A single gram bag usually contains a couple of nugs. Some of them are pale green and dusted with light orange pistils. 

Others are darker and drenched with deep purple patches. Purple weed is insanely popular. It’s pretty enough to attract people who are only interested in flowers for aesthetic reasons.

It might be because you’ll have purple on the brain, but Granddaddy Purple smoke has a distinct grape flavor. It tastes like severely diluted wine mixed with herbs and spices. The aroma is less potent. If you smelled the nugs without looking at them, you wouldn’t be impressed. Once your eye catches the purple splotches, however, you’ll be hooked. No stoner can resist a purple nug bleeding resin. It’s like a marbled steak laying in front of a lion.

Trainwreck

8. Trainwreck - Hybrid

Ignore the name. Adding this Trainwreck to your day is almost guaranteed to boost your mood. Flora Vega’s Trainwreck buds test at a hefty 28.8% THC. You’ll struggle to remember your own name if you smoke Trainwreck.

The smoke has a very distinct flavor. It tastes like sour fruit drizzled with diesel. The taste grows on you as you smoke more. Let the smoke linger in your lungs for a few seconds before blowing it out. You’ll experience a deeper, more satisfying high. You’ll also be able to enjoy the flavor more.

Trainwreck’s aroma pops out at you when you free the buds from their packaging. It smells like earth and spices. None of the individual notes are very strong, but they mesh well. Trainwreck’s aroma is richer than you might expect.

It shouldn’t take long to get stoned. Trainwreck’s power works quickly. It grips your mind and transports you to a stoner realm. Suddenly, you’re free to imagine things that you would never think of while you were sober.

Heritage: Mexican Sativa, Thai Sativa, Afghani Indica

Jack Herer

9. Jack Herer - Sativa

Named after a pot activist and writer, Jack Herer is a blissful sativa that can spark creativity. It’s created from a cross between multiple world-renowned strains. If you’re in a mental slump, sparking up a bit of Jack Herer might be exactly what you need. The harsh edges of your day can be smoothed out. Sometimes, you just need a new perspective.

Tryke grows a solid Jack Herer strain. You can find it as a pre-roll and as flower buds. If you buy a Tryke pre-roll, you can enjoy the quick high produced by Jack Herer. All you need to get buzzed is a lighter. The smoke is surprisingly light. You almost don’t notice it as it fills your lungs. The taste is musky and metallic. It’s the type of flavor that stoners appreciate while new smokers may crinkle up their noses.

Few can complain about the peppy, cheerful high produced by the buds, however. Smoking Jack Herer works as an instant pick me up. It’s hard to feel gloomy when cannabinoids and terpenes are racing through your bloodstream. Jack Herer is a great strain to get started with. It usually tests at around 20% THC.

Bruce Banner

10. Bruce Banner - Hybrid

Bruce Banner nugs are chock full of THC and terpenes. Every inch of your body will feel stoned. The hybrid strain produces a comfortable high that leaves you teetering on the edge of falling asleep. It’s not quite an indica, however. Your mind will be lifted as your thoughts become looser and more creative. People make fun of stoner ramblings, but there are often wise thoughts buried in the words.

Desert Grown Farms grows a hearty Bruce Banner strain. The nugs are plump and threaded with thin orange hairs. If you buy a gram, you’ll feel as though you’ve bought more than one due to the fluffiness. Bruce Banner often tests at higher than 28% THC. It tastes earthy and musky with a slight metallic undertone. The taste lingers in your mouth for a long time after the smoke leaves your lungs.

Bruce Banner buds emit a bold smell. The smell is so strong it strains against the plastic the weed is wrapped in. If you have a good nose, you’ll be able to catch a whiff without opening the bag. Concentrate producers are fans of Bruce Banner as well. You’ll find lots of Bruce Banner shatter, Bruce Banner crumble, etc.
