The Most Underrated Cannabis Strains On Seedsman

They say the cream always rises to the top, and that’s certainly true of some things. In the case of cannabis strains, however, it ain’t necessarily so. With the choice of strains out there numbering well into the thousands, quality weed strains can easily slip through the cracks.

There’s dozens, if not hundreds, of potentially tremendous strains out there you’ve likely never even heard of, let alone tried. Here, we honour some of the most underrated cannabis strains on Seedsman.

Why Would a Good Cannabis Strain be Underrated?

It’s a consequence of the sheer quantity of different cannabis strains on the market today. Keeping tabs on all the various hybrids is a near-impossible task, so it’s only natural that many would zoom under the radar.

Cannabis is like most other products; word of mouth and recommendation tend to drive popularity. As a consumer, you’re more apt to try something with the seal of approval than go looking for something relatively untried or unknown. For that reason, there’ll always be several strains in vogue, while others don’t get the love they richly deserve.

Look back at any point in cannabis history over the last fifty years. There’s always been a ‘top’ or ‘most popular’ few strains of the day, the ones on everybody’s lips. In the 1960s, for example, you had Acapulco Gold and Panama Red. In the 1970s, there was Maui Wowie and Skunk #1. The 1980s saw a breeder’s boom and countless new strains emerged thanks to hybridization. By the time the 1990s came around, it was becoming harder to keep tabs on the number of popular cannabis strains.

Nowadays? You’d be well within your rights to give up trying to count them all!

With so many excellent breeders, seed banks, and new strains, it’s a near-fruitless task trying to keep up with the numbers, so it makes sense that many strains don’t get their moment under the spotlight. Let’s try to correct that by giving some of the most underrated cannabis strains on Seedsman a page all to themselves.

5 of The Most Underrated Cannabis Strains on Seedsman

Bubba Cheesecake

It’s underrated for now, purely because it’s new. But we’re confident that the latest cannabis strain in the Seedsman collection won’t qualify as underrated for long.

What makes Bubba Cheesecake great? Well, this new hybrid ticks every primary box you’d be looking to tick. It’s a 70% indica hybrid, and with 25% THC, it’s safe to say this packs a heavy wallop. Yields are medium to high, around 400-500gm/m2 when planted indoors or up to 800gm/plant outdoors. Expect big, dense buds glistening with trichomes and covered with sticky resin when Bubba Cheesecake matures.

The flavour of Bubba Cheesecake is an intriguing one, too. It takes the sweetness from the Wedding Cake in its parentage and has a liquorice quality to boot, making it a unique experience on both the inhale and the exhale. Bubba Cheesecake has a strong sedative effect, so it’s more suited to evening use. You’ll experience an initial euphoric high before mellowing into a more blissful state. Bubba Cheesecake is a must-try for fans of sticky, dank indica-dominant weed. There’s no doubting the quality of this one!

Diet Durban THCV 1:1

Most of us are fairly clued up with primary cannabinoids, particularly THC and CBD. But how much do you know about THCV? Tetrahydrocannabivarin produces very different effects from the more familiar THC, which sees it dubbed ‘diet weed’ and ‘weederall’. In short, THCV has proved in early testing that it can play a positive role in both weight loss (as an appetite suppressant) and in boosting energy.

Diet Durban THCV 1:1 boasts balanced levels of THCV and THC, at around 7% of each, with about 2% CBD in there for good measure. The result is a novel and fascinating strain that provides exceptional cerebral stimulation and clarity and can aid weight loss. If you’re too quick to succumb to the munchies, Diet Durban THCV 1:1 might be the answer!

This is a high-yielding strain with a flowering time of around ten weeks. It grows happily indoors or outdoors, but make sure outdoor conditions are temperate in the Autumn to get the best of her. She’s a pine-scented strain with herbal, floral notes and a hint of citrus. You must try Diet Durban THCV 1:1 at least once; it’s an experience like no other.

Sweet Tooth Express Auto

If you’ve never heard of the original Sweet Tooth strain, it’s a killer variety with Nepalese, Hawaiian and Afghani lineage. This, alone, indicates quality in abundance. It won 1st Place at the 2001 Cannabis Cup – so it’s hardly underrated – but this new, fast-flowering autoflowering version from Phoenix Seeds is often criminally overlooked.

The Express component of the name is a nod to its flowering time of just seven weeks, making it one of the fastest-flowering strains on the menu. It’s a shorty, too, making it ideal for a quick and stealthy project. Sweet Tooth Express Auto is an excellent strain for beginners to grow.

Flavour and effects are where this strain truly sparkles. The taste is one of sweet berries with a light floral aroma. In terms of impact, this indica-dominant hybrid has euphoric, uplifting properties, making it a powerful tool to combat anxiety and stress. It’s also reportedly valuable for fending off headaches.

Ayahuasca Purple

Dig out your Pink Floyd albums and make sure you’re sitting comfortably because you’re about to go on a trip. Ayahuasca Purple from Barney’s farm is a rare beast – a psychedelic weed that will bend your mind and tie-dye your sweater simultaneously!

Crossing Red River Delta with a Master Kush produced this potent indica, and its colourful, blackcurrant-looking flowers foreshadow the kaleidoscope of trippy goodness headed your way. It’s a surprise this strain doesn’t show up on more lists. Very high THC content (over 20%), high yields (650 gm/2), and just a seven-week flowering period are all highly desirable qualities.

Ayahuasca Purple produces relatively small plants and is best suited to indoor cultivation unless you live in a warmer climate. Make sure you support those branches because the buds get heavy toward the end of flowering. Make sure you support your legs, too, if you plan on smoking this trippy, heavily psychedelic weed. It will suitably relax you. Throw in the fantastic taste of hazelnut and papaya, and you have a real treat of a smoke.

Sticky Dream

If you’ve never grown or smoked Sticky Dream from Positronic Seeds, you’re missing out on an absolute banger of a plant. This easily qualifies as one of the most underrated cannabis strains on Seedsman, and when you learn of its qualities, you’ll soon see why.

As far as parentage goes, Sticky Dream is the child of Blue Rhino and a very special Gorilla Glue pheno – hence the ‘sticky’ part of the name. Crossing a rhino with a gorilla creates a true beast of a cannabis strain! It’s a high-yielding indica that flowers in just nine weeks and produces buds caked in resin. Sticky Dream is a gem of a find if you’re a maker of concentrates or extracts.

Underrated Cannabis Strains

Growers will love its high resistance to mold and pests, while smokers will lap up the sour aroma and flavours that make your eyes pop! Sticky Dream is a tremendous strain for social situations thanks to its potent giggly effect – you’ll find the laughter flows easily with this one, but beware of the spaced-out, dreamy sensations which follow.

Sticky Dream feminized seeds are available on Seedsman.com now
