One of the most exciting aspects about the CBD product boom is the amount of choice of hemp strains. On any given day, your CBD could come from a chill strain named after a Batman villain to a hyped bud called Sour Space Candy.
In 2021, there are more hemp strains than ever. Finding which one is right for you can be tough, especially considering certain strains are now specializing in specific effects. Would you like to engage your creative side? Do you seek relief from migraines? Are you looking for a way to kick off a fun, productive day? Depending on how you answer these questions, the strain you’re looking for will differ dramatically.
So, what’s on the horizon in 2021 when it comes to hemp? Some pretty interesting options, with some creative names.
1. Charlotte’s Web
If you want a hemp flower full of CBD, Charlotte’s Web is for you. At an astounding 20 percent CBD, this bud is one of the most cannabinoid-rich you can find on the market.
2. Sour Space Candy
Many who enjoy this colorful strain experience its mood-elevating qualities. Sour Space Candy also has a heavy terpene mix that many find helps soothe depression and anxiety. Other users have noticed that, taking it before bed, can help them fall asleep.
Harlequin is an eye-catching strain that earned its name due to its bright colors. Sold in states that have legalized marijuana, Harlequin actually has THC levels above those allowed in hemp (0.3 percent.) Despite this, the CBD-to-THC ratio is still around 5:2, meaning you’re getting much less of a buzz than if you smoked marijuana. Some CBD enthusiasts use Harlequin as a sleep aid.
Named after primo Japanese steak, this high-class CBD strain has a mellow, almost nutty flavor. This designer strain might not have the highest CBD count, clocking in at around 12.5 percent, but its unique terpene profile means its effects may last longer than most others. You might find it harder to get a hold of Wagyu hemp, but for enthusiasts, it’s worth the effort.
5. Hawaiian Haze
If you’re looking to get in touch with your creative side, hemp users have said Hawaiian Haze is one of the best strains in town. This powerful CBD bud boasts nearly 21 percent CBD with a robust flavor profile reminiscent of papaya and mango.
6. Special Sauce
Clocking in at over 23 percent CBD, this hemp strain has a unique berry flavor profile. Its woody, earthy finish helps make it an option consumers often prefer using in the evening. The strain also contains the terpene myrcene, which may induce feelings of calm and relaxation.
7. Magic Bullet
A more exotic strain, Magic Bullet is a fan favorite no matter what flavor profiles you prefer. Its complex and fruity essence has a little bit of everything . It’s floral, hoppy, peppery, and even cirtusy. A nice strain to enjoy during downtime throughout the day, consumers of Magic Bullet find it most enjoyable to take when hanging out, either at home after a long day or when getting together with friends.
