The Evergreen Strains 

A handful of marijuana strains pay homage to Washington state

After it became one of the first states to legalize marijuana in 2012, producers and processors couldn't help but take inspiration from Washington state and the people and features that make the Evergreen State what it is.

So next time you're at a local marijuana shop, consider showing your PNW pride by purchasing one (or more) of these strains.

Beast Mode OG and Beast Mode 2.0: You can't bring up the Seattle Seahawks without someone mentioning recently retired running back Marshawn Lynch, aka "Beast Mode," which should make these strains familiar to consumers in and around Washington. The pair, distributed by Seattle's Green Umbrella, are as aggressive as their namesake, in a good way. OG, a well-balanced hybrid, is said to be perfect for lifting your mood and relieving body pain, while indica-dominant 2.0 is great for medical patients, as it fights pain, sleeplessness and a lack of appetite.

Kobain Kush: OK, so the PNW-based RedEyed Genetics took some creative liberties with the name, but it's definitely a nod to Nirvana frontman and Aberdeen's favorite son, Kurt Cobain. This indica-dominant strain, a hybrid of Pre-98 Bubba Kush and White Lotus, is known for its sweet and earthy aroma, with hints of coffee and pine. It's perfect for consumers looking for full-body relaxation.

Mt. Rainier: With buds almost as frosty as the peaks of its namesake, this hybrid strain, another from RedEyed Genetics, is great for the consumer looking for a daytime smoke that won't completely limit their ability to function. Mt. Rainier boasts sweet citrus and fresh pine scents as well.

Seattle Blue and Seattle Cough: The Emerald City lends its name to not one but two strains. First up is Seattle Blue, an indica with a sweet and fruity taste that gives users a feeling of euphoria and a strong body high. Seattle Cough is a sativa-dominant hybrid from Washington's Dutch Brothers. The strain's uplifting smell matches its euphoric effects, which include lowering stress and depression while curbing fatigue and nausea.

Space Needle: Last but not least, a strain named for Washington's most recognizable landmark. Space Needle, descended from sativa-dominant hybrid Blue Dream and powerful sativa Vortex, is perfect for those looking for a creative boost, as it gives off an imaginative buzz. This fruity strain is also great for patients looking to relieve stress, depression and anxiety. ♦
