Exotic weed or marijuana or pot or cannabis or whatever you call it is nothing but a fancy term to sell more of this product. An exotic cannabis strain could be anything; it could be the regular cannabis-like, Jack Herer, OG Kush, or Sour Diesel.
A supplier or dealer uses some exotic terms as a marketing tool to sell more weeds. But some of the strains have different colors, from that, you can tell if it is exotic or not.
A dealer selling an exotic strain could have anything from a fruity sativa to a dark purple indica, but the different regions have different kinds of strain which could be rare and some of them generally have extremely noticeable effects.
Weed and its Legal Use
Weed is mostly illegal all around the world, but the recreational use of weed or cannabis is legal in 15 states in the USA, the District of Columbia, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam. Another 16 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands have decriminalized its use.
The commercial distribution of cannabis is allowed in all jurisdictions where cannabis has been legalized, except the District of Columbia. Also, some of its derivative compounds have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical use.
Cannabinoid drugs that have received FDA approval are Syndros (THC), Cesamet (nabilone), Marinol (THC), and Epidiolex (cannabidiol). And for non-prescription use, cannabidiol derived from industrial hemp is legal at the federal level, but legality and enforcement vary by state.
Exotic Weed and it’s Quality Genetics
Exotic weed is all about good genetics. Some of the most popular breeders like, Cookies Fam, Seed Junky, DNA Genetics, Exotic Genetix, Jungle Boys, and many more create the best strain of cannabis genetics.
Already mentioned regular cannabis-like, OG Kush, Sour Diesel, or Blue Dream have good quality strain but they are no exotic strain.
The quality of these exotic strains are really different from the regular ones, the breeders really work hard to make those genetics, and that sets them apart from other breeders.
Then they give those genetics to the farmers, and they grow great quality cannabis from those genetics. The different environment has different soils and that affects the strain massively as the quality could change drastically.
Different Types of Strain Names
Strain names are really important, not because they make the weed more exotic but the name attracts more buyers.
As mentioned above, the names are basically a marketing strategy. Sometimes these names might confuse the general public because the names are often associated with cookies, desserts, ice creams, etc. and these names are a great seller to tell you the truth.
Different kinds of exotic weeds have a different flavor, like shisha or hookah. Gucci OG, for example, has a pungent taste, smell of sour citrus that can make you tear up a bit even before the bud is burnt. Some of the weed flavors taste like cookies, so they are named after a famous cookie company. And based on the names buyers tend to purchase them.
Apart from the exotic names, buyers also see which one is more popular amongst the exotic weeds. In USA different region has different kinds of farms where these exotic weed strains are being developed. Like California has breeders like Cookies Fam, they develop a unique kind of strain which is really popular amongst the people there and it’s not just exclusive only for the local people.
Some people come from the far region just to taste that kind of strain.
Sometimes different breeders from different regions also come to California so that they could get their hands on that special cannabis strain.
That’s why breeders tend not to give their strains to other breeders or companies, that way they could lose their uniqueness. Every breeder has its unique flavor, and these exotic flavors are really expensive, to say the least. But if people want to consume a different kind of flavors then nobody could stop them, and that’s the thrill in it.
Whether it’s craft cannabis flower or concentrated strain, consumers always look for the most popular or exclusive flavor, that’s why they come from far away just to taste the exotic weed flavor.
