No doubt, cannabis has grown to be one of the most diverse and interesting plant groups on the planet. Every year, cultivators and plant scientists work behind the scenes to bring hundreds of new strains to life, each with unique genetics that are easy to appreciate. However, there’s something truly special about those old school weed strains.

Blame it on nostalgia or whatever you like, but some classic cannabis strains never fall out of favor. Take a look at a few of the most sought-after classic weed strains in Vermont.

The Best Old School Weed Strains

1. Acapulco Gold


  • Type: Sativa
  • Potency: ~21% THC
  • Flavor/Aromatics: Spice and toffee

As one of the few pure Sativa strains, Acapulco Gold has gained something of a cult following due to its rarity. This strain is highly energetic in terms of effects and leaves you focused and happy. The flavor is often described as burned toffee with a dash of telltale spice. Find this classic weed strain on our menu from Turkey Hollow Cannabis.

2. Sour Diesel

  • Type: Sativa
  • Potency: ~21% THC
  • Flavor/Aromatics: Gassy citrus and skunk

Grown by Trichome Ranch right here in Vermont, Sour Diesel is one of those highly favored classics that delivers on the three must-haves: potency, flavor, and effects. Sour Diesel has a profoundly pungent citrus/gas/skunk aroma with a sweet, earthy flavor. The effects tend to lean into high euphoria with a creative, philosophical flair.

3. Afghani (aka Afghan)


  • Type: Indica
  • Potency: ~18% THC
  • Flavor/Aromatics: Sweet earth and spice

Afghani is often categorized as a “pure Indica” strain due to its genetics, which makes it one of the purest OG cannabis strains you can find. Afghani is known for its sweet, fragrant smell and flavor, as well as its sedating effects, which can be quite potent. If you’re looking to try one of the few Landrace classic cannabis strains, look for Afghani from Highly Rooted.

4. Chem D

  • Type: Hybrid
  • Potency: ~25% THC
  • Flavor/Aromatics: Fuel, earth, and pine

Chem D is a potent hybrid with a long line of tall tales about its lineage, some tales even tied to Grateful Dead concerts and happenstance seed harvests from mystery bud. In any case, Chem D has grown to be one of the most beloved classic strains. With its superior pungency, profound flavors, and high potency, this strain sharpens the senses and leaves you deeply relaxed. Experience Chem D for yourself from Trichome Ranch.
