Since we know that marijuana cultivators across the country continue cross-breeding cannabis strains to make new hybrid varieties with distinct properties of their own, you may be wondering what the best new marijuana strains for 2017 are right now. As it becomes easier for cannabis growers to expand and perfect their craft, the best new creations go for top shelf prices at the few medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries lucky enough to offer them. To help keep you up to date on the latest cannabis creations on the market, here we list six of the best new marijuana strains for 2017 so far.

Pinkman Goo


This indica variety has the rare ability to produce full droplets of resin (the “goo”) which is rich with cannabinoids, terpenes, and other chemical compounds. In addition to purple-hued flowers, Pinkman Goo produces leaves that have a distinct purple rim along the edges.


Chiquita Banana


Chiquita Banana is a new top shelf hybrid that offers an enticing aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. This strain consistently tests at levels of more than 30% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), making it one of the most potent strains of marijuana you can find.


Mochi Gelato


This indica-dominant cross between Gelato and Sunset Sherbert is known for its beautiful dark purple flowers. Mochi Gelato is relatively potent, consistently testing between 20-22% (THC) content.


Thunderbird Rose


This uplifting and energizing sativa hybrid is known for the sweet, rose-like aroma that comes from the lime-green flowers. The large buds of Thunderbird Rose are covered with red pistil “hairs” and consistently test at levels of at least 25% THC. 


Cherry OG


Cherry OG is a well-balanced hybrid strain that offers a potent mix of cerebral euphoria and full-body relaxation. This strain produces dark colored flowers with an odor of sweet and sour berries.


Golden Lemons


Consistently testing at THC levels of more than 20%, Golden Lemons is an indica-dominant hybrid strain with stimulating citrus flavors and aromas. This strain is also known for its gold-tinted flowers, an effect created by the dense coating of trichomes on the flowers.
