The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Maine

The Top 10 Most Popular Cannabis Strains in Maine

Almost anyone who has used cannabis for a while has developed a certain taste for specific strains, and thus, tends to lean toward some kind of sativa/indica orientation based on what they want out of their high.  And, nowadays, we have a wider selection of strains to choose from than ever before, thanks to how advanced and profitable the world of breeding has gotten.

What’s interesting is that every state has their own specific strains that residents seem to gravitate toward more than others.  Part of this has to do with what happens to be the most widely in circulation in that region of the country, and part of it has to do with whatever local trends happen to be.  Let’s look at the most popular cannabis strains in Maine.

Top 10 Strains That Mainers Should Try

We are gonna check out some strains that continue to perform really well in Maine, based on consumer data and what we’ve heard from Mainers who actually live in the Pine Tree State. 

#10: Goji OG

Goji OG is a super popular choice, particularly on the medicinal market, thanks to its wide range of noted uses.  But, its high is nothing to scoff at, as this 80% sativa-dominant hybrid packs a major punch with its high THC level.  Its flavor is equally intense, with notes of cherries and licorice at the forefront, and plenty of earthiness for good measure.  It’s notorious for its a super, super euphoric high that can boost creativity, focus, and awareness.

#9: Purple Punch

Purple Punch is a strain that first hit it big on the West coast, before migrating across the country, and now it’s one of the most sought-after nationwide.  An 80% indica-dominant hybrid, it’s the type of strain to reach for, especially after a long and stressful day, since its sedative-like nature makes it deeply relaxing – in fact, it’s a prominent choice for bedtime.  Its flavor profile is also pretty remarkable, with notes of juicy, sweet grapes, warm spices, and creamy vanilla, offering up something that will get the mouth instantly watering.

#8: Gorilla Glue

For high-tolerance partakers, Gorilla Glue boasts an outrageous 26%-28% THC concentration.  Gorilla Glue is an infamous 60% indica-leaning hybrid that can truly make you useless, in a hazy state of unmovable bliss.  If you’re looking to get stoned beyond belief, Gorilla Glue is the way to go, and it’s not surprising that a state with such a high tolerance would choose this one time and time again.  Its sour diesel flavor is a good indication of things to come, as it’s extremely pungent.

#7: Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express is a mainstay for a reason, named for its powerful pineapple taste.  In fact, Pineapple Express has been a top performer for decades, and still dazzles with its spot-hitting high.  It’s a 60% sativa-leaning hybrid, and it’s a staple of the medicinal market thanks to its positive effects on physical discomfort, mood problems, and more.  Its high is creativity-enhancing and sociable, and that makes it the perfect daytime choice as it won’t lead to conking out.

#6: Sour OG

A 50/50 hybrid with moderately high THC levels, Sour OG is super sour in its flavor, and its high is known to hit you basically as soon as you exhale.  A perfect strain to reach for when you’re trying to get things done, but want a nice lift in mood, and to take the edge off of your stress levels.  The ideal companion for chores and creative activities, it’s a tried-and-true fave.

#5: Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies, aka Cookies or GSC, has become one of the highest-performing strains in history, showing off expert breeding skills, and ushering in a new era of powerful, mouthwatering hybrids.  Girl Scout Cookies has it all, including a nutty and sweet cookie flavor, 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.

#4: Gelato

Gelato is an impressively popular strain all over the country, and it has been since it first hit the shelves.  Gelato is a 55% indica-leaning hybrid that delivers a powerful hit of THC, and its sweet, fruity ice cream flavor really adds to its appeal.  Gelato’s euphoric effects are out of this world, going from uplifting and energizing to peaceful and calm over the course of a couple of hours.  Also is nice for the body, having a nice, 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.

#3: Blue Razz

Blue Razz is a top go-to in the state, being a 60/40 indica-leaning hybrid with a moderate amount of THC, great for novices.  Berry flavor really comes across with this one, and its ‘high’ can lift your mood and enhance your ability to focus, without making you feel wired or on edge.  But, before long, it starts to get sedating, with your limbs feeling heavier and your mind getting emptier, making it an ideal nighttime option.

#2: OG Kush

An all-time classic, OG Kush is a big deal in The Switzerland of America.  People swear by its ability to get them into a calmer mindset after a long and demanding day at the office.  Its distinctive flavor is citrusy and spicy, and its cerebral effects are heady while its body effects are potent, making it good for curling up on the couch.  OG Kush is a 55% sativa-leaning hybrid that can feel like a strong indica, so keep that in mind.

#1: Runtz

Runtz is a strain that has dominated the scene for a long time, and people can’t get enough of its potency or its flavor.  Know that this strain is very much indica-leaning in its effects, despite being 50/50 sativa/indica, and it is easy to fall asleep about an hour into the experience.  Runtz’s psychoactive effects are also recognized for being some of the longest-lasting anywhere, so it’s not surprising that a lot of people turn to this one before hitting the hay.
