5 Of The Rarest Weed Strains on Earth

Every once in a while, weed enthusiasts will claim to have come across a strain like no other. Most people will have no clue about the particular strain in question and a discussion on whether that particular strain really exist or not will often occurs. But, do these these ‘mythical’ and ‘elusive’ strains really exist or are they just figments of people’s imaginations.

One thing we can agree on is that there are certain weed strains that are really hard to come by. If you get your supply of cannabis from your local hemp store, you’ll most certainly have an idea of which strains are less common than others. Some weed strains even have some sort of ‘legendary’ status because of how rare they are. Some people even come across these rare strains without knowing it, often requiring the insight of other parties to recognize what is before them.

Most rare weed strains happen to be the most expensive cannabis products on the market. However, not all rare strains are super expensive – some are actually quite affordable if you do find them. Listed below are some of the rarest weed strains that you’ve probably never heard about.

1. Black African Magic

You’ll not find the Black African Magic in many cannabis stores across the country. This is one of the rarest cannabis strains on the planet. However, it is one of the most easily distinguishable strains due to its black to dark brown color. Its unique color makes it easy to recognize from all other strains on earth. Weed enthusiasts who swear by this strain claim that it is highly potent and rich in flavor. So, if you do manage to get your hands on Black African Magic, you should count yourself as one of the lucky few. It’s simply too rare to stumble upon by chance.

2. Oaxacan Highland

The Oaxacan Highland can easily be mistaken for a different plant other than weed. This strain has a really unconventional look that is quite different from what many people expect from a typical hemp plant. Oaxacan Highland is actually one of the oldest weed strains on record. The actual plant grows to heights of up to 12 feet. The strain was quite popular in the 60s and 70s, but it’s nowhere to be seen in today’s world. Some people claim that the strain almost became extinct because of overwhelming hostility in the cartel-controlled areas it was cultivated in.

3. Panama Red

Panama Red is easily recognizable by its bright colored red accents. Weed enthusiasts from way back know this strain to be the purest sativa on the planet. Availability of Panama Red has reduced over the years due to the prevalence of hybrids on the market. Not many people look for pure weed strains any more. Cannabis hybrids are the buzz now and although Panama Red is still grown in some parts of North American, it is considered old and outdated by millenials. Because of this, the strain is gradually becoming rarer by the day.

3. Puna Budder

Another very rare cannabis strain is Puna Budder. This strain was also very popular back in the good old days. If you were alive in the 60s and 70s, you can probably attest to the fact that Puna Budder was one of the ‘coolest’ strains available. The strain attracted a lot of attention from law agencies leading to severe crackdowns in major cities and towns. Fast forward to today, the strain is very hard to find in most cannabis stores. Those who still have access to this strain must be very good at keeping secrets.

4. Hindu Kush

A comprehensive list of rare weed strains would not be complete without mentioning Hindu Kush. You have probably heard of Hindu Kush and it’s amazing qualities, but have never had the chance to see or enjoy it. Well, there is no reason to worry as you are definitely not alone. The strain is said to have a 100% indica rating that many people would die for. Hindu kush is not common in cannabis shops. If you are lucky to find it, you’ll definitely have to pay the price. On top of being one of the rarest strains, Hindu Kush is also one of the purest.

5. Malawi Gold

This strain that is named after a county in Africa is also quite rare. It’s rarity is almost at the mythical or legendary level because no one seems to have seen it. Apparently Malawi Gold has been around for centuries and is easily recognizable by its distinct golden hue. This does not mean that any hemp plant that has a golden or light-brown hue is Malawi Gold. You would be surprised how many people are misled or conned this way. Malawi Gold is simply special. It’s rarity can be attributed to its extremely difficult cultivation and harvesting process.

These are just some of the rarest weed strains from around the world.
