In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the most popular marijuana strains in the market.

Blue Dream

We start off our list with a true long-time California favorite in Blue Dream. While it has always been a 420 icon in California, Blue Dream has been experiencing a surge in popularity in recreational markets all across America. The buds of this hybrid show off a beautiful combination of dark forest green and pastel green colors. The flavor is reminiscent of dark berries and blueberry pastry.

Being a 50/50 hybrid, Blue Dream has a well-balanced high that makes it great for smoking during daytime and at night. Users feel a sense of relaxation and become more easy-going once the high kicks in.

Jack Herer

Named after one of the most legendary pro-cannabis activists of all time, Jack Herer is a true all-time classic and will always be included in any list of the most popular strains ever released. The earthy pine-like flavor it has is easily recognized by long-time cannabis connoisseurs and its cerebral buzz makes one feel relaxed without being too overpowering.

Jack Herer is also great for novice smokers as well as medical users due to its many benefits. It is also great for daytime use as it can make one become fairly active.

Green Crack

A popular strain that is best used during the day. The flavor of this weed is a delicious cocktail of tropical fruits with strong notes of pineapple, mango, and citrus. Green Crack also provides users with a mental invigoration and a sense of relaxation that helps sooth one’s nerves. This hybrid is ideal for inexperienced users as the effects aren’t too overwhelming.

Skywalker OG

The sweet, earthy and pungent taste of Skywalker OG has made it a fan favorite in the cannabis market. The buzz of this strain is heavy and makes the user feel sedated, euphoric and relaxed. It is a great strain to light up and smoke after a long and stressful day at work as it can wash away all of the negative vibes from one’s mind. Skywalker will help you forget about life’s worries even if only for a moment.

Sunset Sherbet Strain

The Sunset Sherbet Strain is considered by marijuana experts to be the heir to the throne held by GSC (Girl Scout Cookies). This hybrid is indica-dominant and has high potency levels that give off intoxicatingly relaxing and euphoric effects. It has a sweet, earthy flavor with notes of citrus that make it a truly delicious strain to smoke. Worries, stress and other negative thoughts will wash away thanks to its happy and carefree buzz.

Gorilla Glue #4

Also known as GG #4, Gorilla Glue #4 has perhaps one of the most unique flavor profiles as its taste will vary depending on the harvest. Smokers can expect to taste diesel, chocolate, pine, and hints of sweet nuttiness when smoking GG #4.  This strain is not meant for novice smokers as it packs a whopping 30 percent THC.

It is a truly potent strain that gives users strong feelings of mental focus and stimulation once the buzz kicks in. Its name comes from its ability to leave one feeling “glued” to their seats, but some users have also experienced feeling more motivated to get things done after smoking this weed.OG Kush

OG Kush is one of the most popular strains to come out of California and features a distinctly earthy, pine-like fragrance with a woody undertone and some notes of lemon. The smoke has a hashy and spicy taste when you inhale and exhale, and its pungent scent tends to linger around for a bit longer after the ganja has been extinguished. With THC levels going as high up as 27 percent, OG Kush is a force to be reckoned with and not something that is recommended for inexperienced smokers.

Whether you are an experienced smoker or someone who is completely new to the whole cannabis scene, you can’t go wrong with any of the strains on this list. Their effects, flavor profiles, and scents are among the best in the cannabis industry, and the main reasons why they are right up there in the list of the most popular strains.
