The Best Marijuanas ranking
All the best marijuana strains on this list have won repeatedly in the world’s most prestigious competitions, such as the HTCC or the Highlife Cup. Some of these strains have reigned for decades, they have been versioned ad nauseam, tried to replace them, but there is no way, they are still the favourites of the world’s most prestigious tasters, and now they are all gathered here for you. Now, without further ado, let’s start with the list of the best marijuana of all time.
Some classic strains are the favourites of many tasters around the world and certainly have a strong presence in the best marijuana ever list. AK 47 from Serious Seeds is one of those strains that never goes out of fashion. A Sativa-dominant strain, one of the most popular in this seedbank’s catalogue.
The genetic heritage of AK 47 is mixed and comes from the quadruple crossing of heirloom strains of Colombian, Mexican, Afghani and Thai origin. The result is a Sativa-dominant hybrid marijuana with unique characteristics, potent psychoactive effects, ease of cultivation and all the stability in the world. With AK 47 you won’t take any risks.
It is a medium height strain that will thrive if you meet its basic requirements: water, light and nutrients. Not much more is needed for this plant to show its full potential. AK 47 is the most awarded strain of all time and therefore one of the best marijuana strains.
Flowering time is quite short for its characteristics, thus, in just 53 – 63 days will be ready for harvesting. Outdoors will have to wait until mid-October to harvest this plant.
Yields are good, as in this flowering time it is capable of producing up to 500 grams per square meter when grown indoors. AK 47’s high is one of the most prized among Cannabis veterans for its long-lasting and narcotic effects, thanks to its 21% THC content.
As we mentioned, it is also the most awarded marijuana strain, as it has won up to 20 Cannabis Cups in international competitions around the world. Its flavour, finally, also stands out among its characteristics for its aroma of pine and exquisite citrus fruits.
To speak of the best marijuana is to speak, in part, of Jack Herer, obviously the original from Sensi Seeds. This is a classic strain named after one of the most important cannabis activists of all time.
Jack Herer was bred from strains prized for their characteristics and this gives it a hybrid of Sativa and Indica characteristics with potent, balanced effects and a mental high typical of the best Sativa marijuana genetics.
The Jack Herer feminized seeds can produce medium-sized plants, which will not exceed 140 cm in the case of indoor growing. In the case of outdoor cultivation, if not controlled in height, it can show vigorous growth that can extend up to 2 meters in height.
Its flowering period is short for a plant of its characteristics, and takes just around 8 weeks in the case of indoor crops. Outdoors you can harvest this variety at the end of September. We recommend SCROG when growing this strain outdoors to avoid overgrowing.
But if there is one thing Jack Herer is known for the best marijuana is its high quality, although its ability to produce large yields should not be overlooked either. In fact, it is a very generous variety, although only the most expert growers will be able to get the most out of this best marijuana.
The potency also tells us a lot because it is one of the best marijuana in existence, as it has more than 20% THC and gives a very creative, happy and suitable for socialising. Its flavour also stands out for its extreme density, perfect for demanding palates. Fresh, citrusy and slightly minty flavours can be tasted during the tasting.
We continue with the classic strains in the list of the best cannabis strains. It’s the turn of the Haze family with the spectacular Silver Haze seeds from Sensi Seeds, a seedbank with more than 35 years of history. This is a strain that is as much awarded as it is appreciated by the community, and now you will understand why.
Silver Haze comes from the selection of the best strains from the equatorial area, like Central America, South India and Thailand, and this is reflected in the fact that it is one of the purest and best Sativas ever created, with the permission of Kali Mist and Destroyer, which we will analyse later on.
The result is an 80% Sativa-dominant hybrid marijuana with great height, although more compact compared to its predecessor, so it is necessary to use a method to control the large size it can reach. Beyond this, Silver Haze is a low-maintenance strain that is perfect for beginners.
It has a late flowering period, as is to be expected for a plant with the characteristics of Haze. Thus, the flowering period can last up to 80 days. Be prepared for a marvellous production of top quality, elongated and resinous Sativa buds.
It is a potent marijuana, although we have no the lab analysis to tell you what the exact percentage of THC this strain has, we know that it is a strain with high THC and very powerful, with happy, euphoric effects and great for a good time partying.
In short, if you are looking for the best Sativa strain, Silver Haze should be among your choices.
From the best Sativa marijuana, we move on to the best Indica strain. Within this genetics, it is worth mentioning some seeds that stand out for their tradition, potency and colouring. We are talking about Dutch Passion’s Blueberry, a strain with a berry flavour and bluish colour, a marvel of organoleptic properties.
To find out the genetic origin of Blueberry we have to go back to the 90s, when this strain was presented for the first time, it was created with a combination of the best strains of the blue family. This latest generation of Blueberry seeds has managed to maintain the unique characteristics of the first specimen by adding much more production and potency.
As a good Indica, Blueberry is easy to grow, with medium height, short internodal distance and generous yields. Outdoors, this strain can grow taller and is harvested in early autumn. Flowering time is 8 to 9 weeks outdoors.
Dutch Passion reports that this new Blueberry, one of the best marijuana strains of all time, can produce up to 450 grams per square meter indoors. One of its unique characteristics, apart from its taste, is its colouring. Blueberry will take on blue and purple colours, especially when grown in colder climates.
The psychoactive effects of this Blueberry are potent thanks to its 19.5% THC content, which can immerse the taster in a cloud of extremely pleasant narcotic relaxation. The taste of Blueberry, as it can not be otherwise, is fruity, with notes of berries, a whole explosion of terpenes in the mouth.
We continue with the best marijuana with Strawberry Banana seeds from DNA Genetics seed bank, one of the best seed banks in terms of packaging process and germination guarantees. Strawberry Banana is a delicious banana flavoured marijuana that will not disappoint you.
To obtain this exceptional variety, DNA Genetics has genetically combined selected specimens of Crockett’s Banana Kush with the classic Bubble Gum. This is one of the jewels of the DNA Genetics catalogue because of the genetic quality and unique characteristics you will see below.
Strawberry Banana is a 70% Indica-dominant hybrid marijuana. It adapts perfectly to any growing medium and does not offer many complications to the first time Cannabis grower. It should be noted that this strain is sensitive to over-fertilisation, but by following the manufacturers’ growing charts, no one will encounter any problems.
The flowering time of Strawberry Banana is average, she will complete this part of the plant’s life cycle in 9 weeks, and you can expect very good yields. As such, you can expect up to 550 grams per square meter of harvest indoors, while you can expect up to 850 grams per plant when growing outdoors.
As you would expect from a list of the best marijuana, Strawberry Banana has loads of THC. Although we do not have lab analyses that specify the exact percentage, it is a very potent strain, with balanced effects, although mainly relaxing.
Finally, its flavour stands out as its most curious characteristic. It is a marijuana with a banana aroma, one of the strains that have best managed to mimic the flavour of this fruit thanks to its terpene profile.
Back to the best Sativa marijuana from equatorial regions, it is the turn of Destroyer. It is a feminized cannabis seeds created by the Cannabiogen seed bank and is a very stable hybrid, with good production and very high potency.
Destroyer is the purest Sativa strain on the list of the best marijuana. Thus, it is a 100% Sativa strain with all that this means. In order to create this variety, cannabis strains from areas of the equator, such as Thai and Mexican strains, the land of Sativas, have been genetically combined.
The result is a marijuana with tall stature, long internodal distance, plenty of branching and great proliferation of elongated buds, large and full of resin. It is highly recommended practicing a height control technique to prevent the size of this plant from getting out of control, as it can reach more than 3 metres if given space.
Its flowering stage is somewhat long and can last 9 to 12 weeks. This is normal for a 100% Sativa genotype. We don’t have exact yield figures, but Cannabiogen report that this is a medium to high yielding strain, great for anyone looking to get a crop of Sativa buds.
The best thing about this variety, which is why it is on the list of the best marijuana, is its effects, the person has to be ready to feel the doses of euphoria and energy that Destroyer can offer. It is a marijuana to consume in intense creative processes and not to fall asleep.
Larry Og Kush
We finish the list of the best cannabis with a marvellous strain produced by The Cali Connection Seeds seed bank, the Larry OG Kush. It is the ideal weed for those looking for a hybrid that brings together the best of Sativa and Indica genetics.
To create the Larry OG Kush, Cannabiogen has combined exclusive genetics from this seed bank with OG Kush. The result is an Indica-dominant hybrid marijuana with all the positive characteristics of the OG Kush, such as its special flavour and yield.
Larry OG Kush is a compact and short marijuana plant, perfect for discreet crops. In addition, it has short internodal distance, which guarantees large, voluminous buds. This strain has a lot of resin, so it is suitable for those who want to make home extractions.

Its effects are balanced but very potent. According to its creators, it is the ideal marijuana to consume after a hard day’s work and to completely disconnect.
