The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Louisiana

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Louisiana

Louisiana has had quite a complicated relationship with cannabis for years, having been quite opposed to legalizing recreational weed, and even flirting with the idea of banning psychoactive hemp-derived cannabinoids.  Fortunately, the hemp market is alive and well in the Bayou State, so false alarm.  And, thanks to the innovations of the hemp industry, we have seen cannabinoid-infused vapes, flower, and dabs really take off throughout the state, in all kinds of tempting strains.

So, which strains are Louisianians gravitating toward the most?  Let’s take a look at the best performers of the year, so you can get some fresh inspo the next time you’re ready to switch things up in Sportsman’s Paradise.

Top 10 Strains That Louisianians Love

Let’s look at 10 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 Louisiana. 

#10: Blueberry OG

Blueberry OG is a strain that has been on the market for ages, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that it’s the perfect strain for anyone seeking out powerful indica effects, particularly in the latter half of the day.  It’s an 80% indica-dominant hybrid that has a juicy blueberry taste, and it’s a popular choice among breeders.  Blueberry OG is known for its very euphoric ‘high’, and its hazy “stoned” vibes that are very cerebral.  Also is great nighttime strain due to its ability to shut your brain off and help you find a sense of quiet in your mind.

Try: ELYXR Potion Blend Disposable 2000mg in Blueberry OG

#9: Platinum Cookies

Platinum Cookies is really rising through the ranks right now, and it’s a 50/50 hybrid with very balanced effects.  Its addictive taste is super cookie-like, which makes sense when you consider the fact that it’s a close relative to all-time fave Girl Scout Cookies.  Platinum Cookies has a very strong 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.

#8: Apple Fritter

Another fantastic 50/50 hybrid is Apple Fritter, as this also happens to be related (common genetics-wise) to Platinum Cookies. Fairly new, it’s quite a potent strain with a glorious flavor profile of apples and rich pastry.  Apple Fritter 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.

#7: Berry White

A 65/35 indica-dominant hybrid, Berry White is an easy reach because it has a very balanced high that’s never too energizing nor too sedating.  It offers a warming sensation throughout the body that’s ultra appealing, along with an uplifted and worry-free state of mind that honestly, we could all use a little more of.  Its droolworthy taste is just the icing on the cake, no pun intended, as cake-like undertones complement the rich berries.

#6: Runtz

Runtz is so popular that you can find it in just about any dispensary across the USA.  In Louisiana, it’s an in-demand choice, both medicinally and recreationally.  Just know that Runtz 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 psychoactive effects are also recognized for being some of the longest-lasting anywhere.  No wonder so many people choose this one as part of their nighttime routine.

Try: ELYXR Delta 8 Cartridge 1 Gram in Runtz

 #5: Slurricane

Slurricane is a 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid that comes from legends Do-Si-Dos and Purple Punch, with a high THC level great for anyone looking to get super high.  It’s a high that will leave you in a dazed state, wiping out any mental focus or awareness, while your body feels glued to the couch.  Fresh berries and herbs supply a nice taste component as well, and overall, it’s a great nighttime strain, since it can make you pretty much unable to do anything.

Try: ELYXR 1 Gram Joint (325mg THC-A in Slurricane)

#4: Zkittlez

Zkittlez is a very recognizable name, and its popularity has yet to falter as new strains hit the scene.  A 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid, Zkittlez tastes just like its namesake, and its satisfyingly soothing high keeps you coming back for more.  Zkittlez 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.

#3: Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express has earned icon status, and it’s no surprise that all these years later, it still dominates the market, especially among those looking for daytime cultivars.  Not only is Pineapple Express a 60% sativa-leaning hybrid, but this strain is also a staple of the medicinal market – its positive effects on physical discomfort, mood problems, and more are just some of the reasons why.  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.

Try: ELYXR Live Resin THC-A Cartridge 1 Gram in Pineapple Express

#2: Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies (aka Cookies or GSC) just has that “it” factor that keeps its popularity enduring.  Between its dreamy cookie flavor and potent THC level, this strain has it all, and it’s an indica-leaning hybrid that offers big waves of euphoric bliss paired with utter calm, and a body high that will almost definitely bring you into couchlock so that you can sit back and really relax for a while.

Try: ELYXR Potion Blend Cartridge 1000mg in Cookies

#1: Gelato

Gelato is one of the most recognizable strain names in the world.  Its heavy demand for both recreational and medicinal effects is the reason why.  It has a super powerful THC level, and a 55% indica-leaning profile.  And, it tastes like fresh berries and ice cream, which just adds to its appeal.  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.  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.

He originally worked at a marketing tech company in Boston doing email marketing and SEO display ad campaigns (where he helped to create the content for those emails and banner ads for clients) before going full time as a freelance writer in 2017.

It all started working with clients in the vaping industry in 2013, where David got his opportunities to do more freelance work for that industry the following year because of his success with helping those clients with emails and ads. And, which led him writing for the hemp industry too, as he had already been an avid cannabis enthusiast going all the way back to 2011.

Because of his extensive knowledge and legit passion with non-psychoactive and psychoactive cannabinoids, coupled with his better understanding of shrooms (mushrooms) since 2015, and the kratom/kava industry since 2019, it has allowed him to create some of the most remarkable, out-of-the box, and informative content in the industry.

Even today, David still keeps on top of what’s happening in the cannabis, shrooms, and kratom/kava industries, like new research and data studies, wellness trends, legality, and emerging cannabinoids and strains, in order to supply the most up-to-date, precise educational, fun, and engaging content. That way, new and experienced users alike can really understand what this amazing industry has to offer while still being fully informed.
