Strains of The Rainbow Cannabis In Living Color

Cannabis has a rich, colorful history – and in 2016, the actual plant, as well, has a wider color palette than ever before. Forget Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain, Roy G. Biv or whatever other acronym you learned as a kid to help you remember the colors of the rainbow. Now, there’s a strain in every hue: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Here’s our rundown of the spectrum.

Red Haze

Red Haze is a powerful sativa with a very cerebral, light-headed, long-lasting high. Use strictly as a daytime strain: effects can be similar to drinking a cup of coffee.

Agent Orange

Agent Orange is a balanced hybrid combining smooth Orange Velvet with killer-strength Jack the Ripper: buds flecked with purple and deep maroon visually offset with olfactory notes of fresh-cut orange. Uplifting and motivating effects make Agent Orange a superlative mood enhancer.

Lemon Haze

Lemon Haze is redolent of fresh-peeled lemon slices, with a sharp taste of citrus. The buds are greenish-yellow with amber hairs on the trichomes: THC content has been measured at 15-20% with a CBD of 0.38%.

Green Crack

Green Crack is an extreme name befitting of the extreme energy hit and focus this strain provides: invigorating mental buzz helps you power through the day, tangy, mango-like flavour keeps you coming back for more. Ideal daytime medication for fatigue and depression. Note: some feel that the name perpetuates a negative image of cannabis, preferring to call this strain Cush or Green Cush (yes, with a “C”) instead.

Blue Diesel

Daughter of A-list, indica-dominant Blueberry and sativa-dominant NYC Diesel, Blue Diesel combines a long-lasting body buzz with a light berry aroma. Great for daytime use: little to no fatigue or increased appetite.

Purple Urkle

Purple Urkle has a complex flavor profile which blends skunk, berry, and grape: consumers report deeply relaxing, sleep-inducing effects that are great for full-body pain relief. Short onset of effects means it’s the perfect thing to cure that killer bout of insomnia.

Not a colorful type? If you’re more of a monochrome type, cleanse your color palette with…

The White

A cool-looking, mostly-indica hybrid with 60 day flowering times,
The White won a
cannabis cup in 2009. Don’t let the name fool you: she’s no relation to
White Widow. Rather, the icy, frosty buds are the source of the strain’s wintry moniker.
