BC Bud is a generic term for several potent Cannabis indica-dominant varieties (e.g. BC Arctic Sun, BC God Bud) also the more recently popular strain known as seaweed aka pinklady grown in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The term has almost become a brand name, especially in California, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho and Washington, to which most of the province's cannabis is exported.
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration considers BC production to be a major problem, given the porous United States-Canada border, and has launched several major initiatives to cut down on its flow, including collaborative operations targeting marijuana activists such as Marc Emery. It has even been discussed in the documentary, The Union: The Business Behind Getting High which chronicles the distribution, production and economics of marijuana.
A study released on October 4, 2006 by the University of Victoria Centre for Addictions Research of BC and Simon Fraser University Applied Research on Mental Health and Addictions indicated Cannabis use is more widespread among British Columbians than the rest of Canadians.
However, a high tolerance for cannabis use in BC and an awareness of the
Panama Red, Panamanian Red, or P.R. is a pure cultivar of Cannabis sativa, popular among cannabis aficionados of the 1960s and 1970s, and renowned for its potency. The typically high THC levels associated with the variety are thought to be dependent on the particular cultivar, rather than the Panamanian climate.
In a limited test, an Auburn University researcher reported that "seed of a sample of Panama Red, grown in the very different climates of the Canal Zone, campus and northern New Hampshire, yielded marijuana with similar THC content."
Its name comes from its cultivation in the country of Panama, and its claylike red color. Production was common in Panama's sparsely-populated Pearl Islands.
Cannabis culture died off in Panama with the rise of cocaine trafficking.
"Panama Red" is the lead-off song and single from the 1973 album The Adventures of Panama Red by country-rock band The New Riders of the Purple Sage. Peter Rowan, the writer of the song, later performed it with Old and in the Way.
Also featured in "Meet the Parents" (2000).
Also featured in the 1995 release "Amsterdam" off the Van Halen album Balance.
Mentioned in the 1999 Film Detroit Rock City

Nederwiet is a common Dutch name for a "skunk" variation of marijuana bred in the Netherlands for its high potency with THC levels approaching 30% in some varieties. The name is derived from the Dutch words for The Netherlands, Nederland, and for weed, wiet.
In the early 1980s Nederwiet was a poor man's weed with a very low THC concentration (8%). In the 1990s students of the Dutch University of Agriculture in Wageningen did research and increased the concentration of THC to around 25 percent. This result was afterwards adopted by the market with a current average tendency of around 20%.
In the early 21st century, Nederwiet became internationally known for its potency. According to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, cannabis from the Netherlands was almost twice as strong as in the rest of the European Union, where the drug's potency had remained stable.
By 2008, according to figures of the Dutch law enforcements authorities, Dutch cannabis growers earned around 2 billion euros yearly from exporting at least 80 percent of their illegal harvests. The growing began at small scale in the 1970s, after"idealistic young people with green thumbs" set the trend
White Widow is a strain of cannabis allegedly developed by Dutch seed breeder known as "Shantibaba"(other sources name "Ingemar") and its known for its abundance of white trichomes and high potency. White Widow has been reported to leave the user with a relaxed feeling. It, like most indica marijuana varieties, is a good appetite enhancer. However, being a cross between sativa and indica (60% Indica, 40% Sativa) it also has the sativa quality of mood enhancement - bringing on an interest in activities one may not normally enjoy. The variety won the Cannabis Cup in 1995.
White Widow grown in Amsterdam is known to contain up to 20% of the active ingredient THC. White Widow buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost snowy look. As of late as 2011, it sells for approximately 8 Euros per gram in The Netherlands. In Seattle and Tacoma, it is available from dispensaries for Medical Marijuana patients for a donation of $12 US per gram.
White Widow is a strain that is fairly easy to grow, and especially in Europe because of its resistance to mold and colder climates.
Northern Lights is a strain of cannabis. Its one of the most potent and highest yielding strain of Cannabis indica.
Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.
Northern Lights has received much attention in the scientific community, as it is often the subject of experiments testing the viability of medicinal marijuana. The hybridization of cannabis is also notable in the botany community as Northern Lights in particular has been studied for its female and male genetic characteristics. Users have reported feelings of euphoria and relaxation when under the influence of Northern Lights.
Acapulco Gold is a sativa-dominant indica/sativa hybrid of Cannabis. It is likely originating from the area around Acapulco, Mexico. Acapulco Gold has strong sativa cerebral effects, offering a long lasting high that balances upbeat effects with body-relaxing, stress reducing calmness.
Acapulco Gold has been found to effectively relieve symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic pain.
The clusters of buds are pale green to yellow, speckled with reddish-brown gold and covered with very visible THC crystals. The strain produces flavors and scents of fruits and spices. It is known to contain up to 23% of the active ingredient THC.
As of late 2011, Acapulco Gold sells for about 13 dollars per gram at medical dispensaries near Boulder, Colorado.
The Oxford English Dictionary quotes an early usage of the term from a 1965 newsletter, in which it was described it as "a special grade of pot growing only in the vicinity of Acapulco. The color is either brownish gold or a mixture of gold and green. This grade has a potency surpassed by few of the green varieties and usually comes at slightly higher prices or in short weights." According to one linguistics book, "The gold
Kush refers to a subset of strains of Cannabis indica. The origins of Kush cannabis are from landrace plants mainly in Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and North-Western India with the name coming from the Hindu Kush mountain range. "Hindu Kush" strains of cannabis were brought to the United States in the mid-to-late 1970s and continue to be available there to the present day.
Kush strains were among those cultivated by the British firm GW Pharmaceuticals for its legally licensed commercial trial of medicinal cannabis.
US Congressman Mark Kirk, then a Republican member of the House of Representatives from Illinois, introduced legislation to increase the penalties for selling kush. The High-Potency Marijuana Sentencing Enhancement Act of 2009 (H.R. 2848) would increase the penalties for the possession with intent to distribute, manufacture, import or export to maximum fines of $1 million for an individual and $5 million for a group, with a maximum sentence of 25 years from the standard sentencing for marijuana which calls for a maximum fine of $250,000 for an individual, $1 million for a group and up to five years in prison. Kirk believes that as kush may sell for up to $560 (USD)
Purple Haze is a strain of cannabis developed by various Dutch seed breeders known for its purple color, abundance of white trichomes and high potency. It is widely regarded as an extinct strain. The vast majority of seed breeders regard purple haze as a myth due to the fact that any cannabis strain can develop purple calyxs in below optimum temperatures.Purple Haze buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost sugared look mixed with characteristic purple.
Contrary to popular belief Jimi Hendrix's song "Purple Haze" has no direct relation with the cannabis strain.
G-13 is an extremely potent strain of Cannabis indica, likely originating from indica Afghani strains. G-13’s long-lasting, unique high has a near immediate onset. The effects are powerful, providing patients with a strong body high, but generally without sleepy, head-heavy cerebral symptoms.
The origin of G-13 is likely one of the most perplexing of any strain, making it the subject of many urban legends. According to some accounts, in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s the CIA, FBI, and other government agencies collected the best strains from around the world. At a top-secret installation at the University of Mississippi, they bred many new super hybrids. Allegedly, a single cutting of this plant was liberated by an unnamed technician and bred for the masses. The cut, G-13, was said to be the 13th, and one of the most potent, in a series of pure Afghani strains.
The facts, however, provide no substantiating evidence. Although cannabis researchers at the University of Mississippi did assemble a world-class cannabis collection during the late 1960s and early 1970s, there is no evidence that these researchers were ever involved in breeding high quality marijuana.
G-13 has a number of
