The most popular cannabis strains according to Leafly are either Sativa or sativa dominant hybrids. Most people seem to prefer the uplifting high of a Sativa over the couch-lock high of an Indica strain.
We want to help beginners choose a top quality strain right off the bat, so we put together a list of the top 10 most popular strains available almost anywhere.
1. Blue Dream – Sativa-Dominant Hybrid
Probably the most common strain across the nation after originating on the west-coast. Blue Dream is a cross between Blueberry Indica and Sativa Haze, giving users a well-balanced high.
2. Sour Diesel – Sativa
There is much mystery surrounding the origins of this potent strain, but it is currently classified as a Sativa. Sour Diesel or Sour D is a popular strain for medical patients thanks to its long-lasting pain relief and energizing high.
3. OG Kush – Hybrid
Another west-coast staple, almost every stoner has heard the name Kush, and for good reason. OG Kush offers users a euphoric high that will leave them smiling from ear to ear.
4. Green Crack – Sativa
While Green Crack has nothing to do with the cocaine derivative, it does give users an unparalleled cognitive buzz. A super tasty, fruity flavor that will relieve stress and give you the focus necessary to take on your day.
5. Girl Scout Cookies – Hybrid
After winning a couple of Cannabis Cup awards, Girl Scout Cookies became a hugely popular strain originating from the west-coast. Characterized by long, twisting buds wrapped in slightly purple leaves and covered in bright orange hairs. Sure to be enjoyable as their namesake.
6. Granddaddy Purple – Indica
Kick back and relax with Granddaddy Purp. These gigantic buds have a sweet berry smell thanks to their Big Bud / Purple Urkle parents. Granddaddy Purple is a great strain for relaxation and getting to bed. Its powerful body-high makes it a perfect choice for pain and stress relief.
