A Brief History of Indiva’s Strains

When it comes to cannabis strains – Indiva is pretty particular. We like our strains rich in history and with the kind of lineage that would make any monarchy proud. Below is a quick history of some of our new and exciting strains to help you enlighten your friends and fellow cannabis enthusiasts.

White Russian

White Russian is the brilliant creation of Serious Seeds, a Dutch seed bank. This dynamic strain is the child of prestigious strains AK-47 and White Widow. The progeny was so well-received by cannabis enthusiasts around the world, the strain won High Times’ 1996 High Times Cannabis Cup in the Best Overall category.

Did you know: For a time, White Russian was considered the strongest strain in the world.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer, the strain, is named for the prolific cannabis rights activist and author of the same name. Herer’s The Emperor Wears No Clothes is used to this day to help fight for cannabis decriminalization and legalization. At some point in the 80s or 90s, the exact timeline is still murky, Sensi Seeds created the sativa-dominant strain by combining Haze, Northern Lights and Shive Skunk*.

Did you know: Every year, the Jack Herer Cup is held in Las Vegas to honour the late activist and celebrate the very best in cannabis.

*The exact genetics of this strain are still unknown. The strains listed above are the most likely candidates.

Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze first hit the cannabis community in the early 90s. Its genetic line goes back to Scott Blackey, sometimes referred to as Shantibaba, who began the development of this strain while working at Greenhouse Seeds. This strain is a combination of Original Haze, Northern Lights #5 and Skunk #1. Its terpenes offer herbal, peppery and citrus-laden notes.

Did you know: Super Silver Haze has won three different Cannabis Cups!

OG Kush

Coming Soon
OG Kush is one of the most well-known strains in cannabis. Although it’s been highlighted by some of the most prolific hip hop artists, its history is a bit of a mystery. Some experts believe its origins lie in Chemdawg, while others believe its roots lie in a Dutch Hindu Kush strain. Cannabis experts have debated its genetic lineage for decades, but what isn’t up for discussion is its place as one of the foundational strains of California cannabis.

Did you know: Rapper 2 Chainz wrote a love letter to OG Kush in his song, OG Kush Diet.
