The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Connecticut

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Connecticut

There really is no denying that the cannabis market has taken off in Connecticut within the last few years here, thanks to recent legalization of recreational, adult-use marijuana.  Simultaneously, the hemp industry has introduced residents to loads of new cannabinoids and product types aimed at helping one finetune their high on a whole new level.

If you’re residing in the state of The Nutmeg State, you’ve come to the right place.  We are going to be looking at the 10 most popular strains according to Nutmeggers.  As you will see, certain sativa, indica, and hybrid strains are particularly sought-after throughout the state.

Top 10 Strains That Connecticuters Should Really Try

Let’s look at some of those strains that continue to perform really well in the state, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from people who actually live in Connecticut. 

#10: OG Kush

An absolute legend is OG Kush, one of the most widely enjoyed strains of all time.  OG Kush has a major reputation in terms of being that go-to strain for relaxation.  Plus, it’s an immensely popular bedtime strain.  Its citrusy & spicy taste is totally distinct, and its potently heady effects paired with a potent body high make it a dream when you’re trying to unwind.  It’s a 55% sativa-leaning hybrid that gives off heavy indica vibes, so keep that in mind.

#9: Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express continues to enjoy its reign on the market, and it’s one of the most recognized names in the strain world to this day.  Pineapple Express is 60% sativa hybrid that explodes with fresh pineapple flavor, and its high is one of the most sought-after of all time.  Pineapple Express is a mainstay of the medicinal market due to its positive effects on physical discomfort, mood problems, and more.  Its high is creativity-enhancing and sociable, so it’s a perfect afternoon strain when you don’t want to end up passing out in the middle of the day.

#8: Granddaddy Purple

Those who prefer to partake in the evening hours absolutely adore Granddaddy Purple.  Its intensely high THC level shows us where a lot of CT residents are at tolerance-wise, and its 70% indica-dominant profile means you’re in for something very soothing, and fully capable of sending you into a state of couchlock.  Often recommended to people with chronic stress and sleep issues, Granddaddy Purple’s mood-boosting yet calm properties are regarded as some of the very best in the cannabis world.  Meanwhile, its grape flavor never fails to hit the spot.

#7: Zkittlez

A mainstay of the dispensary industry, Zkittlez is a 70% indica-dominant hybrid, and the strain lives up to its namesake in terms of flavor.  Its blissful ‘high’ keeps Connecticuters coming back for more.  It’s a sleepy strain, so it’s best reserved for nighttime, and people love how much it lulls away stress and worry while delivering a sense of relief and release throughout the muscles.

#6: Blue Dream

Blue Dream is a very, very popular strain in the state, and that has a lot to do with its strong medicinal value as well as its ultra-balanced high.  Its berry flavor is easy to recognize, and it’s a 60% sativa-leaning hybrid that can meet you where you’re at.  During the daytime, Blue Dream can make you feel euphoric, focused, and creative, but if you take it at night, it can make you feel calm, collected, and ready for rest.  It’s also phenomenal for anyone dealing with tension in the body.

#5: Gelato

Gelato has been in many top 10 lists throughout the country, and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon.  It’s a 55% indica-leaning hybrid that packs a serious punch, and its flavor is that of fresh cream and sweet berries, making it worthwhile in more ways than one.  Gelato’s euphoric effects are out of this world, and it’s known to go from uplifting and energizing to peaceful and calm over the course of the high.  Also is fantastic for the body, having a beautifully mellow effect on tightness in the muscles and joints – so much so that it’s one of the most recommended strains for physical relief on the medicinal market.

#4: Gorilla Glue

High-tolerance enthusiasts can’t get enough of Gorilla Glue, with its staggering 26-28% THC level.  This 60% indica-leaning hybrid is notorious for its mind-bending high that’s hazy beyond words, leaving you utterly unable to focus or move.  If you’re looking to get stoned on a whole new level, Gorilla Glue is a clear choice, and it’s not surprising that a state with such a high tolerance would choose this one time and time again.  GG’s sour diesel flavor is a good indication of things to come, as it’s extremely pungent.

#3: Runtz

Ultra-high in THC, and sweet and fruity just like its namesake, Runtz is a 50/50 hybrid that is selling like crazy in the state.  This couchlock-inducing superstar is very heavy on the sedating side, with a body high and cerebral high that can knock you out about an hour into a smoking session.  Its high is also known for being one of the longest-lasting anywhere, so it’s no wonder why so many people choose this one as part of their nighttime routine.

#2: Apple Fritter

Another 50/50 hybrid, Apple Fritter is a powerful strain with a distinctive flavor profile of apples and buttery pastry.  It promises a fast-acting, euphoric head rush, which gets rid of any negativity that may be hiding in the corners of your mind.  At the same time, it can alleviate tension in the body, helping you feel extremely at ease.  Perfect for balancing out your mood, we’re not surprised to see this one so close to the top of the list.

#1: Wedding Cake

Finally, we have Wedding Cake, aka Pink Cookies, a 60% indica-dominant hybrid known for its higher-than-average THC level and mouthwatering cookie/cake-like flavor.  It’s phenomenal at alleviating stress, negative thoughts, and irritability, and its balanced nature explains its crowd-pleaser status.  Wedding Cake is also big in demand on the medicinal market because of its ability to zero in on all kinds of common ailments.
