Cannabis beginners may not know where to start.
Different strains are best for different people. The strain you choose will depend on your desired experience and effect, as well as the cannabis products you prefer to use.
Perhaps the most exotic strains of weed aren’t the best choice for beginners. Beginners may experience some THC-induced paranoia from most of the strong strains.

A strain like Granddaddy Purple is one of a kind.
The strain was a cross between an Afghani Indica and a Thai Sativa, with its parents being Big Bud and Purple Urkle. Its unique lineage is what makes it exotic, as well as its strong grape-like aroma.
Granddaddy Purple has a grape taste from its Purple Urkle parent. This variety offers a strong high and exotic taste that smokers will love. Even non-smokers will find it hard to resist the sweet scent.

This plant has a unique subtle earthy and citrus smell and delivers a vintage flavor with hints of incense known as a hard-rubbed chakras flavor.
This strain provides full-body relaxation without adverse effects. Instead, it sharpens our sensory awareness, which makes us feel sharpened to analyze every activity better.
What Makes Weed Exotic?
It may be confusing to understand what makes weed exotic. If we remove cannabis from the equation, what does the word exotic really mean?
An exotic animal like a bird from Costa Rica might be exotic to North Americans, but it’s not to South Americans. Thus, exotic weed means strains and genetics that were bred elsewhere from where you reside. But that’s not all.
Any beginner to cannabis might look at any strain as exotic, considering that it’s completely out of their territory. But, seasoned users who know their weed might want an exotic strain that presents;
- Bolder colors
- Higher terpene contents
- Higher cannabinoid contents
- Powerful effects
While some of the strains below have genetics that hails from different countries like Afghanistan, Australia, Jamaica, and Colombia, most are only labeled as exotic for their cannabis properties noted in the list above.
