The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Kentucky

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Kentucky

Let’s face it – Kentucky is a bit less progressive than other states when it comes to cannabis laws.  However, if there is one thing that they are lenient on, it’s the ever-growing hemp market, which offers legal psychoactive cannabinoids like delta 8 THC, THC-P, HHC, THCA, and more, alongside dreamy selections of strains in flower, vape, and dab form.

Given that, we want to explore 10 strains that are really popular in KY right now, to give Kentuckians some inspo the next time they go shopping for their favorite legal cannabis products.

Top 10 Strains That Kentuckers Can Get Behind

Check out these strains that continue to perform really well in The Rock-Ribbed State, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from Kentucky’s adult residents.

#10: Platinum Cookies

A fast-rising strain on the local market is Platinum Cookies, adored for its cookie-like flavor, and being a 50/50 hybrid with very balanced effects.  Its addictive taste makes sense you consider the fact that it’s a close relative to all-time fave Girl Scout Cookies.  Platinum Cookies is a very strong in its THC content, so expect a powerful high, while enjoying an initial blastoff into euphoric bliss, followed by a warm and tingly body high that gets heavier and heavier to the limbs as time goes on, lulling you into a state of unmovable peace.

#9: Trainwreck

Not for the faint-hearted, Trainwreck feels just like it sounds, being an 80/20 sativa-dominant hybrid.  Its ominous name comes from the way in which the strain hits you like a ton of bricks shortly after you exhale.  Trainwreck produces a huge burst of stimulating euphoria that can get you moving in no time.  It’s not for the light-hearted, as its stimulating effects can be a lot, and its warm and tingly body high isn’t exactly sedating.  It’s great for socializing, since it can make you feel chatty and giggly.  Its flavor profile is lemony, with strong black pepper notes that can cause coughing.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Cartridge 1 Gram in Trainwreck

#8: Gorilla Glue

For those Kentuckeyites with a very high THC tolerance, Gorilla Glue really takes things to a whole new level with its 26-28% THC level.  It’s a 60% indica-leaning hybrid that’s infamous for its brain-numbing high that can make you feel utterly useless, unable to focus or move.  If you’re looking to get stoned to the max, Gorilla Glue is a clear choice, and it’s not surprising that so many people opt for this one when they have a high tolerance.  In fact, its flavor profile is quite similar to Sour Diesel, but its high is arguably even stronger.

Try: ELYXR THC-P Flower in Gorilla Glue

#7: Runtz

Runtz is immensely in-demand to the point that you can easily find many offsprings at any dispensary in the country.  In Kentucky, it’s equally well-liked, as we’ve seen this year.  Know that the strain is very much indica-leaning in its effects, despite being 50/50 sativa/indica, and it’s easy to fall asleep about an hour into the experience.  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.

 #6: Sour Diesel

You don’t have to be a serious connoisseur to know Sour Diesel.  This strain has dominated the hemp market for literally decades, long before ultra-potent strains were commonly in circulation.  It’s a notorious 90% sativa-dominant hybrid known for its powerful effects, and its distinctive flavor of sour lemons and diesel is recognizable.  Sour Diesel is a super-heady strain in its cerebral effects, which are euphoric, creativity-boosting, and downright hazy.  If you’ve never tried in this classic, you don’t know whatcha missing out on.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Dabs in Sour Diesel

#5: Gelato

Gelato is one of the most recognizable strain names in the world thanks to its heavy medicinal and recreational demand.  It leans 55% indica, and its THC levels are in the mid-20s, making it very potent.  At the same time, its flavor of fresh cream and sweet berries draws you in immediately.  Gelato’s euphoric effects are downright legendary, and it’s known to go from uplifting and energizing to peaceful and calm over the course of a couple of hours.  It’s also great 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 1 Gram in Gelato

#4: Zkittlez

Zkittlez is another strain with many sough-after offsprings, and totally earns a spot toward the top of the list.  A 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid, the strain lives up to its name in terms of its taste, and its ultra-desirable high keeps you coming back for more.  Zkittlez is a sleepy strain, so it’s best reserved for nighttime, and people love how much it soothes away stress and worry while igniting a sense of bliss throughout the muscles.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Disposable Vape 1 Gram in Zkittlez

#3: Northern Lights

One of the few pure indica strains to continue to endure amidst the hybrid wave, Northern Lights is a real ‘guiding light’ for anyone who wants a super chillout type of high.  The body high can be intense for newbies, since it’s a pretty sedating strain overall, but essentially, few cultivars can make you feel relaxed and mellow like this one.

Try: ELYXR One & Done Disposable (THC-P, HHC-P, THC-B, THC-H, & HHC) in Northern Lights

#2: OG Kush

Another longtime classic is OG Kush, which has been the proud parent to many ultra successful phenotypes over the years.  OG Kush has a citrusy and spicy taste that’s memorable, and its heavy cerebral effects paired with a potent body high make it a dream when you’re trying to unwind and mellow out.  It’s a 55% sativa-leaning hybrid that gives off heavy indica vibes, so keep that in mind.

Try: ELYXR Potion Blend Cartridge 1000mg in OG Kush

#1: Apple Fritter

For a more balanced experience, we have Apple Fritter – a powerful and relatively new strain with a glorious flavor profile of apples and rich pastry.  It delivers a nearly instantaneous, euphoric rush to the head, which gets rid of any negativity that may be hiding in the corners of your mind.  Simultaneously, it can alleviate tension in the body, helping you feel extremely at ease.  Great for balancing out your mood, we’re not surprised to see this one so close to the top of the list.
