If you’re thinking about trying to finally get your medical marijuana card, then you may also be thinking to yourself…

“What new strains of cannabis should I be looking at in 2022?”

Obviously, strains are going to change from year to year. 

Every year, people blend and mix different strains together to make even newer, better, and more unique hybrids and types of cannabis. 

And this is awesome—because it just helps to further the marijuana growth industry, and empowers cannabis aficionados to get better access to more diverse strains that may present slightly different experiences…

And what’s not to love about that, right?

So in this post, you’re going to learn about several new cannabis strains that you should definitely consider exploring in 2022. 

Whether you’re a casual smoker, a hardcore high THC smoker, or someone who’s looking for maximum medicinal benefits—let’s break it down and dive in. 

1. Sour Diesel

This strain is sativa dominant, and is best known for its distinctive ‘diesel’ smell. It has been around for a while—and was actually voted ‘best cannabis strain’ back in 2020. 

However, it’s still as hot as ever. And if you haven’t tried it yet, 2022 is definitely the year to consider giving it a chance. 

2. Pink Rozay

This indica-dominant hybrid strain is best known for being developed as a collaboration between Cookies founder Berner, and the legendary rapper Rick Ross

(Hey, if Rick Ross did it—you know it’s probably gold, right?)

It has a super unique flavor profile, and high THC content—giving you a high unlike anything you’ve probably experienced before. 

3. Jokerz

This fruity, spicy cannabis strain is a max THC indica-hybrid, and was designed for serious marijuana heavyweight smokers. 

It’s been described as ‘icy, dense, dark, and massive.’ 

It has also been voted to be a pot strain that pairs well with things like getting off work, kicking back, loving, eating, relaxing, and getting restful sleep. 

This is definitely a strain that you don’t want to miss out on. 

4. Animal Mints

This unique strain is a cross between ‘animal cookies’ and ‘mint cookies.’ 

It’s best known for providing a pleasant ‘minty’ aroma and earthy flavor, giving a strong body high at the same time. 

Most users who use Animal Mints report feeling extra relaxed and pretty hungry, which tends to make it a great choice for people who are either stressed out, struggling with appetite, or both. 

It also boasts a high THC level, so get ready for some serious kick (or kick-back, depending on how it hits you). 

5. Girl Scout Cookies

This unique and delicious weed strain features a high THC level, and it’s potent. It’s an indica-dominant strain, so it tends to give you a happy, fall-into-the-couch kind of euphoria. 

Medical marijuana users also use this strain to help relieve anxiety, depression, and other similar types of conditions. 

It’s certainly not a strain that you want to miss out on in 2022!

6. Ivory

Ivory is an Urban Leaf strain that got its name by boasting obvious tiny frosty white crystals. However, one taste of this weed, and you’ll quickly realize that it comes with some interesting taste notes, namely: rubber ball, table butter, and lemon garnish. 

If you’re looking for something interesting to try in 2022, you really need to check out this strain and give it a shot. 

7. Royal Gorilla

This strain is known for being exceptionally potent in terms of THC levels. 

It offers a super rich high, which comes along with wonderful feelings of euphoria and relaxation. 

If you’re a medical marijuana user, this strain will be particularly useful, as it can help you with dealing with things like chronic pain and inflammatory issues. 

Simply put, it’s obviously a strain to try—especially if you like stronger strains with higher THC content. 


There you have it. 

7 new cannabis strains that you really must try in 2022. 

Of course, every strain is different—so you’ll probably want to exercise a bit of trial and error to find the right one for you.
