The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Florida

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Florida

Florida’s cannabis laws aren’t the most lenient in the country, but they’re not the strictest either, thankfully.  Medicinal marijuana is a thriving market throughout the state, and the hemp industry can legally sell its products to residents without any limitations on certain cannabinoids, strengths, or product types.  So, it’s not surprising that the average adult Floridians has gotten more strain-minded over the years, being able to explore all kinds of cultivars to personalize their ‘high’.

With that being said, we want to highlight the best-performing strains in The Sunshine State, because you will find that regional tastes aren’t all that different from current trends in the cannabis industry at large.

Top 10 Strains That Floridians Can Really Relax With

Let’s check out some 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 Florida. 

#10: Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough is one of the most beloved daytime strains when you’re not necessarily done with your to-do list.  Its ability to erase negativity and irritability is epic, without numbing the mind to the point that productivity comes to a screeching halt.  Its juicy strawberry taste, meanwhile, comes with notoriously strong black pepper notes that make coughing almost unavoidable.  Meanwhile, this 80% sativa-dominant hybrid gives a feeling of euphoric energy that makes you feel unstoppable.  Strawberry Cough is also great for creative endeavors, household chores, and socializing.

#9: Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel, one of the OG legends, continues to enjoy its reign in the state, and it’s easy to see why.  Sour Diesel is a 90% sativa-dominant hybrid known for its very high THC concentration, and its unique flavor is notorious, with notes sour lemons and pure diesel.  It’s a super heady strain in its cerebral effects, which are euphoric, creativity-boosting, and downright hazy.  If you’ve never partaken in this classic, you’re missing out.

#8: Pineapple Express

Few partakers are strangers to Pineapple Express, a strain so well-known a whole movie was named after it.  A 60% sativa hybrid, it delivers profound pineapple flavor, and its high is one of the most widely used strains in the world.  Pineapple Express is a mainstay of the medicinal market thanks 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.

#7: Granddaddy Purple

For fans of more nighttime-oriented cultivars, you can’t go wrong with Granddaddy Purple.  This grape-tasting delight boasts a 70% indica-dominant profile, so you’re in for a drowsy type of ‘high’, which will almost definitely lull you into a state of couchlock.  Meanwhile, its THC level is far above average.  Often recommended to people with chronic stress and sleep issues, its mood-boosting yet calm properties are regarded as some of the very best in the cannabis world.

#6: Gelato

Gelato has been a top performer ever since we can remember, with a dreamy high paired with a creamy and fruity taste that keeps you coming back for more.  It’s a 55/45 indica-leaning hybrid that can get you super high, and its ability to produce a feeling of equilibrium makes it capable of pleasing just about anyone.  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 nice 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.

Try: ELYXR D9o Live Resin 90% Disposable 2 Grams in Gelato

#5: Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue is an absolute legend, thanks largely in part to its outrageously high 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 getting high out of your mind is your MO, Gorilla Glue is an easy reach, and with that being said, you should go lightly if your tolerance is at average level or below.  Flavor-wise, GG is very similar to Sour Diesel.

#4: Bubba Kush

An 80% indica-dominant hybrid, Bubba Kush is an OG Kush offspring, with THC levels in the mid-20s (above-average).  Known for its lazy vibes, Bubba Kush is fantastic for lounging around mindlessly, and its body high is super heavy.  It’s not surprising that so many people love this strain at nighttime, when it can help them unwind and feel more prepared for rest.  As for flavor, Bubba Kush packs a punch of earthiness and floral notes that’s totally intriguing.

#3: Ice Cream Cake

A strain that’s been creeping up in popularity since its debut, Ice Cream Cake has a 75/25 indica-dominant profile and above-average THC level.  Its rise to fame is no surprise considering its two iconic parents, Gelato and Wedding Cake.  And, as you can imagine, its flavor is absolutely to die for.  The sweet-tasting cultivar is unbelievably euphoric, all while lulling the body into a state of couchlock, which feels like being cradled in a warm blanket.  Negative thoughts will disappear as you feel a sense of inner peace that is indescribable. 

Try: ELYXR Potion Blend Disposable 2000mg in Ice Cream Cake

#2: Runtz

Named for its sweet and fruity taste, Runtz is a high-THC, 50/50 hybrid that continues to dominate the local market.  Its couchlock effects can be powerful, and overall, the strain 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 recognized for being one of the longest-lasting anywhere.  No wonder lots of people choose Runtz as part of their nighttime routine.

#1: Blue Dream

Blue Dream is one of the most sought-after strains of all time, and that has a lot to do with its strong medicinal value as well as its high that’s about as balanced as they come.  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, it 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.
