With another 4/20 in the books, we at Leafly took a peek to see which strains our visitors were most curious about on the most cannabis-friendly day of the year. In case you want to keep the celebrations going through the weekend, here are the top 10 strains that were searched for throughout the day.
1. Blue Dream
No real surprise here, Blue Dream has been one of the top strains on Leafly from day one, and continues to be one of the most popular and well-known cannabis strains in the world. The strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid originating in California, achieving legendary status among West Coast strains. A cross between Blueberry indica with the sativa Haze, Blue Dream balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration.
2. Girl Scout Cookies
Another popular strain among Leafly users, Girl Scout Cookies, or GSC, is an OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid cross whose reputation grew too large to stay within the borders of its California homeland. Girl Scout Cookies launches you to euphoria’s top floor, where full-body relaxation meets a time-bending cerebral space. A little goes a long way with this hybrid, whose THC heights have won Girl Scout Cookies several Cannabis Cup awards.
3. Sour Diesel
Sometimes known as Sour D (and one of my preferred cannabis strains), Sour Diesel is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers a punch of energy, along with dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour D to its legendary status. Main medical uses for this strain include dealing with stress, pain, and depression. The strain is believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.
4. Gorilla Glue #4
A rapid riser among Leafly users, Gorilla Glue #4, developed by GG Strains, is a very potent hybrid strain that delivers heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation, leaving you feeling “glued” to the couch—hence its name. It has chunky, resin-covered buds that fill the room with a pungent earthy and sour aroma, which are inherited from its parent strains, Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel.
This strain has provided me with one of the more intense body and head highs of any strain that I have reviewed to date. The high came on almost immediately, and was pretty intense in terms of its psychedelic intensity, the body high was great also, I felt lethargically focused, if that makes any sense. I was in full effect of the indica part also, and here is what I mean. I needed a seat belt for reality, but I was intensely focused on the movie I had on, “The Big Lebowski”. – chronicallymedicated
5. OG Kush
This cannabis strain makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but despite its ubiquity, OG Kush’s genetic origins remain a mystery. Popular in pop culture, as you’ve probably heard its name dropped in a rap song or two, OG Kush is cherished for its ability to crush stress under the weight of its heavy euphoria. It carries an earthy pine and sour lemon scent with woody undertones, an aroma that has become the signature of OG Kush varieties and descendants. Medically, OG Kush can improve migraine symptoms, and ADD/ADHD, along with stress disorders.
6. Green Crack
First of all, don’t let the name fool you… or scare you away. This is purely cannabis, and a kick-ass cannabis strain at that. Few strains compare to Green Crack’s sharp energy and focus, as it induces an invigorating mental buzz that keeps you going throughout the day. With a tangy, fruity flavor redolent of mango, Green Crack is the perfect daytime medication for patients treating fatigue, stress, and depression. Because its name perpetuates a negative image of cannabis, some people have taken to calling this strain Cush (with a “C”) or Green Cush instead.
7. Granddaddy Purple
A legend throughout the cannabis industry, Granddaddy Purple was introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes. Also known as GDP, it’s a famous indica cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This California staple inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. Its potent psychoactive effects are clearly detectable in both mind and body, delivering a fusion of cerebral euphoria and physical relaxation. While your thoughts may float in a dreamy buzz, your body is more likely to find itself fixed in one spot for the duration of GDP’s effects.
