6 Most Popular Marijuana Strains in California

Published on

If you’ve spent any time in California, you may have wondered which marijuana strains are top sellers in dispensaries. Like in most other areas of North America, cannabis strains like Sour Diesel, Girl Scout Cookies, and Blue Dream are popular in California, but there are some other must-have varieties for many who live and visit the Golden State. Here we touch on six of the most popular marijuana strains in California; enjoy!

1. Green Crack
People in California love this stimulating sativa for its ability to relieve stress and fatigue while helping one focus, particularly during the day. Green Crack comes from Skunk #1 and an Afghani strain, and the flowers smell and taste like sweet, tangy fruit.

2. Granddaddy Purple
A product of cannabis classics Big Bud and Purple Urkle, Granddaddy Purple is one of the most popular marijuana strains in California. It’s a potent indica that induces a relaxing body buzz and has the sweet flavor of mixed berries and grapes.

3. Bubba Kush
An indica-dominant cross of (supposedly) Northern Lights and either an Afghani or OG Kush hybrid, Bubba Kush produces bulky flower buds that have a pungent aroma. It has a sweet, earthy taste and offers powerfully calming effects over body and mind alike.

4. Skywalker OG
Skywalker OG is a potent, pungent blend of OG Kush and Skywalker, and it has a famously earthy, sweet citrus flavor that’s helped make it one of the most popular marijuana strains in California. This hybrid has a strong aroma of spicy herbs and diesel fuel and is known for providing pain relief.

This California creation is one of the most popular strains of cannabis in the state, and its crystal-covered flowers are coveted for their ability to relieve pain without intense sedative effects. SFV (for San Fernando Valley) OG is a potent, sativa-dominant phenotype of the legendary OG Kush, and it offers earthy flavors of wood, lemons, and pine.

6. Gelato
One of the most popular marijuana strains in California is Gelato (AKA Larry Bird”) which is a powerful blend of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbert. Gelato is known for its fruity aroma and a sweet taste of berries, as well as its ability to relax the body while stimulating one’s mind.
