The Best Tasting Buds on Earth 2017

With ongoing marijuana legalization, the stigma that surrounded cannabis use in times past can be put to rest. It is now socially acceptable to discuss the merits of marijuana in terms of different strains. It is a unique field with many different applications. There are different ways to ingest marijuana and an infinite variety of different strains to take advantage of. And there are new strains being created every day, with growers now free to experiment on their own. At least in the 8 states in the USA where recreational marijuana happens to be legal. There are many online sites which feature the best tasting varieties of marijuana on a year by year basis.

There are many variables to take into account when choosing the best tasting buds. The strains listed below are based on their official lab content, not on user input. The overall terpene content of the buds is a major factor in determining ranking. Terpenes are what gives the marijuana it’s scent and flavor. There is far more to marijuana than just THC and CBD, important as those two compounds actually are. As people get more comfortable with marijuana there will be marijuana smoking events and competitions just like wine tasting. It will be viewed as a popular delicacy to be enjoyed.The top 5 best tasting buds of 2017 are listed below.

1 – Durban Poison

This is a pure sativa and has a THC content of up to 24%. It features a total Terpene count of 4.1%, the primary terpenes being terpinolene and myrcene. These two primary terpenes are actually quite rare and at 23.8 mg per gram is among the highest content of terpinolene per gram than any other strain on the planet. This brand is grown byTJ’s Organic Gardens and was lab tested by Steep Hill Labs, Seattle. 4.1% is a very large terpene count more commonly seen in extracts as opposed to plants. It has a sweet floral flavor and a pine like aroma.

2 – Nameless OG

Nameless OG has a total terpene count of 3.0%. This is quite a high terpene count by most standards, though still quite a way off of Durban Poison. It is a phenotype of one of the most popular types of weed available, OG Kush. The primary terpenes in Nameless OG are limonene, myrcene and humulene. The grower of this strain is Nameless Genetics and is has been lab tested by PSI labs and Iron Labs. This is a plant of the Indica variety.

3 – Veganic Cherry Cough

One of the reason that this strain does so well is that it is 100% organic. In terms of scent and taste, it is now obvious that organic strains do far better than their counterparts which have some synthetic components added to aid in the cultivation process. Veganic Cherry Cough takes this organic one step further, adding its own vegan fertilizer. Kushman Genetics have grown their product veganically. This strain has been lab tested by Steep Hill Labs in Berkeley. Veganic Cherry Cough has a total terpene content of 2.9% and the primary terpenes are linalool, limonene and limonene.

4 – Super Silver Haze

Silver Haze is a well-known brand of marijuana that has been around for decades. It is one of the most popular brands in the home of modern marijuana – the Netherlands, and Amsterdam in particular. This is a sativa dominant strain and is a mix of three of perhaps the top 10 most well-known brands of marijuana – Silver Haze, Skunk and Northern Lights. The combination serves to upgrade Silver Haze to Super Silver Haze. It has a total terpene count of 2.8% and has been lab tested by Steep Hill Labs, Seattle, Washington. The grower of this particular strain is Life is Good Healing. The dominant terpenes are the rare terpinolene and myrcene.

5 – True OG

Because of the fact that OG Kush is so popular it is no real surprise that its variants should show up on the list twice. There are literally hundreds of hybrids and phenotypes out there in the marijuana world. That said, True OG is one of the “most true” or purest forms of OG Kush out there, and deserves some recognition. It has a 2.1% terpene content and is an Indica variety. It is grown by Elemental Seeds and was lab tested by Steep Hill Labs, Seattle, Washington. The primary terpenes are linalool, limonene and myrcene.

The Best Tasting Buds of 2017

These are the best tasting buds of 2017, though individual preferences may vary. It is important to note that of these 5 top tasting marijuana strains, only one had synthetic elements. True OG was grown using a synthetic fertilizer. This stands to reason. Synthetic fertilizer usually has a higher salt content. This makes it more difficult to flush out the residue. The end product is buds that turn black. Not so good for taste. In addition to this, organic (or veganic) fertilizers are more natural and give plants more of what they need. This will assist in unlocking the full potential of the plants genetic potential, which will invariably result in a higher terpene profile. Feel free take advantage of some of the best tasting buds on earth 2017.
